If the heating and cooling is working O.K. and maintaining the proper temperatures it is possible that your outside unit is in its off cycle. If the inside unit is running and the outside unit is not with an elevated temperature inside check the power supply to the outside unit. Most units have a disconnect located near them. Check the disconnect and make sure it is set to the on position. Listen for a hum noise at the outside unit which could indicate that the control power is being supplied to the contactor.

My outside unit is making a loud weird noise but the inside unit is working completley fine it is 7yrs old now


the outside unit is where it all happens. That is where the compressor is and its cooling fan. The inside unit is just an evaporator, a bit like a car radiator and a fan. The inside unit is protected by the room, the outside unit is in the rain, snow and wind.

You need an AC engineer.

Ticking Noise in my Fujitsu Mini Split Indoor Unit


does the ac continue to make the noise even in fan only mode or is only in cooling mode. If only in cooling then it could be a gas related problem or blocked coil.

No heat but fan keeps running


If the air conditioner compressor runs all the time the main control board might be defective. The main control board provides the voltage to the fan motor and compressor. These boards are often misdiagnosed. Check all other components to be certain this is the cause of the problem.

Our unit is making loud clicking noise and spraying water when in the cooling air condition mode, but not when the fan is on. What could be the problem, and is it fixable?


you may hear water splashing that is because it is coming off of the condenser the part that is outside the water runs off the condenser and is forced out by the fan for as the noise could be something in or on the inside fan blade or outside fan blade as long as the water is not coming inside your house and you have enough slope on the unit you should be ok

Check your filters, dog hair and lack of maintenance will definitely burden the cooling mode of the Mr Slim units.

Heat pump not running


check your house circuit breakers first that should be labeled heatpump or outdoor unit
make sure it is on and or not tripped
then if you have a box outside near the outdoor unit open it up and see if there is a breaker or maybe fuses that could be blown
