My AC model is Blue Star 1.5 ton 5 star inverter split AC. ODU is switching off when temperature reach its setpoint, but not the IDU. Does any one help me why it is so?

You likely are running a constant fan. Fan should be set for auto, this means it turns off when compressor turns off.

Air vent schematic

air for the inside of the car comes from the vent at the base of the windscreen or is recirculated inside the car
if you see what appears to be mist, fog or smoke from the ac vents ,it is extra cold air from the ac system that is seen as fog when it hits the air in the car
you will know exhaust fumes by the smell

2004 VW Golf, smelling fumes. The fumes come from the vents. The smell is NOT there when I have the heat, AC or circulation on. I'm confused because I do not hear anything different and would assume it...

I emphasize with you on this problem. If you are smelling fumes you are inhaling car "exhaust" which is extremely dangerous as you know. I have a 1999 Passat that had a "fume" issue that baffled me for over a year. Your description of the conditions that you smell the fumes may not be complete enough for me to definitively say what your problem is but I will tell you what I experienced and discovered on my car. I only smelled the fumes when my heat or AC was on and the car was NOT moving forward. Also, if the AC recirculate button was on I didn't smell the problem as bad. So, what I found was that the car's emission control piping was leaking the exhaust fumes that bypass the pistons and go into the crankcase. These fumes are normally piped back into the intake manifold to be re-burned to reduce emissions. With a completed disintegrated rubber emissions pipe coming off the engine block, the fumes entered into the engine compartment which is sealed from the interior of the car. So, how did the fumes get in my car? Well, when waiting at a red light and with the heat or AC on (no recirculate) the fumes would fill the engine compartment and overflow out the wheel wells and wrap over the hood to the intake vents (near the wiper blades) of the car's interior air system. If the recirculate button is pressed with the AC on, the car's interior air (no exterior air) is recirculated inside the car to cool it faster and I didn't smell the fumes as bad. Also on windy days the fumes didn't get a chance to wrap over the hood and get into the intake vents. Because of the unique conditions that had to occur in order to smell or not smell the fumes it was a difficult problem to solve. By the way, the disintegrated rubber pipe was almost impossible to see and there is no real reference material to read that describes the location and depiction of the emissions plumbing. I hope this helps you!

Ammonia smell when air conditioning running,is it safe to be in trailer

Ammonia is toxic to breathe, even at low levels. Ammonia fumes are very irritating and corrosive to the eyes, nose and airways. Fumes may cause a burning sensation, coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, laryngitis, rhinitis and watery eyes, even at low levels. People with asthma or other respiratory problems may be especially sensitive to ammonia fumes, as may individuals with corneal disease, glaucoma, or severe liver damage.

What wire size do I need to run for a 1.5 ton AC unit in 220 volt?

It will be good to have a 3sqmm wire for the power line but if the line is going to be longer then increase the size to the next level.
This is because the AC on start up draws about 10 amps intially. the present models have bettter star ratings are consume lesser but a good conductor will not drop the line voltage.

Whenever I turn on my ac in the car I get a misty oily smell through my airco vents so I decided to turn the climate control switch to red for a few seconds to see what that did after I switched it back to...

When you run your AC, turn if off before you end your trip. You're having it on which builds up mildew. Then when you leave your car there, it stays in the vents. When you turn the car back on, that's the smell you get. Not to mention you should not ever turn your car on with the AC enabled. That's going to cause strain on the initial start of your vehicle that could lead to later complications.

Vapors coming through the vent w/AC & heater on - 96 VW Golf

Bad heater core. What is happening is when you turn on the air you are getting fumes from the heat of the engine and the heater core leaking causing you to get a smell and also fumes. I would suggest that you take it to the dealership or a mechanic and have the problem fixed ASAP due to the health issue

HVAC vent selector does not function. Air flow is

THe blend door seems to be stuck. When you change settings from defrost to floor air or, vent, the blend door opens and closes directing the air to the place you want it to go to. I have had some success spraying a lubricating oil such as WD40 under the dash on the blend door. You need to get under the dash with a flashlight to locate it. It looks like a flap. Spray it with a couple of shots of the WD40. Go easy on the spraying as you may be inhaling the fumes. Keep the doors and windows open to minimize the fumes. Wait about 1/2 hour and try the A/C functions. (defrost, floor, vent air)
