Question about Mitsubishi Mr. Slim MXZ30TN Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Fan works, air conditioning does not. Try resetting the power (in the proper sequence - outdoor unit followed by indoor unit). Air conditioning came on briefly (less than a minute) than stopped, leaving only the fan working. What is the issue?

Without seeing the unit,

1 - the condenser fan (which is in the outdoor unit) could be blown. This would cause the unit to go off on high head pressure.

2 - it could be low on refrigerant, which makes it do nothing but blow room temperature air around. The unit would go off on low pressure

3 - the filter is dirty, blocking the cooling

4 - the compressor could be shorted, or a corroded wire somewhere that feeds the contactor

Mr. Slim Ductless Splits are the best on the market and should only be repaired by a trained technician.

Hope this helps.

Luxpro psd111 thermostat shows snowflake (sometimes blinks), outdoor fan works, but no cool air comes out inside- no air flow at all. Is it the thermostat or an a/c unit malfunction?


If the outdoor unit is running the indoor fan should definitely be running. Turn power off to indoor unit. Put red green and yellow wires together behind the tstat with a wire nut. That is power (red), indoor fan (green), and compressor (yellow.) Turn power back on. This is bypassing the tstat and you should have indoor fan and outside running as well. If yes the problem is in the tstat, if no indoor fan the problem is in the unit. Good Luck!! Let me know!!

I have a neo plasma lg 7kw will not heat LG Air conditioner


Make sure the setting on the remote is correct . Sun symbol for heating. Make sure the filters are clean. On heating, the indoor unit will 1/2 open the flap but the fan shouldn't start. The outdoor unit should start and if working properly, will be blowing cold air. The indoor unit will open the flap fully and the indoor fan will start once it gets hot then you should feel warm air. If the outdoor unit is blowing warmish air, I would say the reversing valve coil has failed or one of the indoor temp or pipe sensors are faulty. If a sensor fails, a "CH" error should appear on the display.

Air conditioner will not turn on even after reset button pushed


A few basic principles for air conditioner troubleshooting. For both central home air conditioner or window air conditioner, the first thing to check is whether the unit is getting proper power. If the unit uses 220 volt power be sure that the proper voltage is getting to the unit. Same for 110 volt units. A voltage meter can be used to assure that the voltage is correct.

For window air conditioning units the voltage can also be checked before and after the thermostat. If voltage is being supplied to the thermostat but not from it then the thermostat probably needs replaced. This is a fairly common problem. Another place to check is the fan motor voltage. The fan on window air conditioners runs both the indoor blower and the condenser fan. If that motor fails than the compressor may run for a short time, but will overheat and shut off. Continued operation like this will result in compressor failure. This motor can be economically replaced for larger window air conditioners, but for smaller ones the cost of replacement will be more than a new unit.

Central air conditioners for the home are more complex and there are more things that can go wrong. As with the window air conditioner the thermostat can also be a problem. The central air conditioner thermostat will only have 24 volts going to it. So don't look for high voltage there. Some units the voltage will be coming from the outdoor unit and others the voltage will be supplied by the indoor air handler or furnace. Most home central air conditioning will be supplied by the indoor air handler or the furnace. If the air conditioner is for cooling only the unit will usually have only two wires going to the condenser unit. Make sure that you have 24 volts across those wires.

The next thing to check will be the indoor blower. If your thermostat is calling for cooling then the indoor blower should be running. If there is no air moving across the indoor cooling coil then you will soon have a big block of ice formed on the coil. This can happen for a few reasons. The indoor blower is not working, the air flow is restricted and not allowing air to move across the coil. A clogged air filter would also do this. Or the outdoor condenser unit has lost the charge of refrigerant.

Finally and worst of all is when you have a complete compressor failure. Often when this happens the compressor will "lock up" or not be able to turn when power is supplied to it. Overheating or lack of lubrication are usually the main causes of compressor failure. Overheating can be caused by the outdoor coil around the compressor getting clogged with dirt, leaves, or grass. Loss of the refrigerant charge will also cause the compressor to overheat. It is the cool return gas coming back to the compressor that helps to keep it from overheating.

As you can see there are many things that can go wrong with an air conditioner and I have not come close to exhausting the possibilities here. I have just touched on the most common problems in a very basic way.
There are some basic trouble shooting things that can be done very easily. Most problems are above out of the range of comfort for many homeowners and professional help should be consulted before any attempt is made at repairs. Remember also, that the release of refrigerant gases into the atmosphere is a federal offense in the
US. Proper care must always be taken to minimize the release of any gases. A license is also required to handle refrigerants. Make sure that the professional you call has the proper certifications to handle refrigerants properly.

Mistral mss 1.0kw unit - When switched on the indoor unit & the outdoor compressor runs normally but the air coming out of the blower is not cool even after a long time. Is there a reset button to...


If the indoor unit blower is running and the outdoor unit fan is turning, you will need to make sure that the compressor itself is actually running and that it is not just the outdoor fan that is turning.
Get close and listen to the end of the unit were the compressor is located, also carefully feel the two copper lines, where they connect to the outdoor unit, they can be very hot - if working properly, so be careful.
There is no reset button that is easy to get to, the limits are usually auto resets, I would hazard a guess that the system is low on refrigerant and will require a HVAC tech.
But before that, make sure that the coils / fins on the outdoor unit are clean and not plugged with leaves, grass, cottonwood, ect.
You can turn power off to the unit and carefully wash the coil out with a garden hose, do not use a nozzle, as the higher water pressure can bent the fins.
As the water runs thru and drains off of the coil, watch and see if it is very dirty, rinse till the water is clean.
Restore power to the unit and try it, If it still does not work, the unit might be low on freon or the safeties might have been already damaged.
Once the unit is repaired, in the future make sure and keep the coil rinsed and free of any blockages.

Split unit, I get heat but no cold


I have run into this with the LG brand systems. try shutting power off to the outdoor unit to reset all units. If problem persists, it could have to do with a charge level of refrigerant (freon) or possibly a failed control board.

Home Air Condition cooling problem


Hello. If your outdoor coils are dirty it's a good chance the indoor coils are dirty also. Clean the indoor coils and flush out the condensate line.
I know it's tempting to feel the air and try to decide if the unit is working properly but, you need to use a thermometer and while the unit is running check the temperature at the return air vent and then check the temperature at the supply vent closest to the unit. Remember to let the thermometer set for about 5 minutes before reading.
You should be looking for about 15 degrees F cooling between the return and supply.
If your coils are clean make sure the outdoor fan is operating properly. The air coming out of the outdoor fan should feel warm, almost hot. If not you may need to check your pressures. Good luck and let me know what you find.
