Question about Samsung AS18A6RB Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Split unit a/c - works but no cool air only air. I was told the compressor broke and would need to be replaced at a huge cost.

Compressor broke after six years, one year after warranty. Considering the cost of the unit,I think the unit should not have broken after only six years.

The warranty usually reflects the worst case life expectancy. In other words if your warranty is for 5 years then they expect that if the unit was to be run consistently with regular to no maintenance It will only last 5 years.

These systems are very expensive. But that is not because of there longevity but for their unique applications. Manufacturers are not selling nearly as many Mini splits as they do regular split systems. So it is really just a supply and demand situation.

3 split units run from one compressor one is not cooling


If there is 3 indoor units from one condensing unit
(6 pipes at outdoor unit) this is classed as a multi unit

All units will run correctly as long as they all require same mode, cooling or heating, if one unit decides to heat it will shut down until master unit decides to heat then it will start, for each unit to individually heat and cool there would have to be 3 pipes to each indoor,

Ramsond Split system - R55GW - will not cool or heat


That would be the way to go even thought the cost is high. If not you run the risk of compressor failure and the metering device may be clogged. I know the price is what has you over a barrel but, the cost to you in the near future will be 3 times as much.

Sorry I could not cure the problem over the internet
Also check around there may be someone who could do the job slightly cheaper.

Compressor keeps shutting off after 30mins or so


The system may be going into cool down mode or thermal over load if the temperature is 104 degrees fahrenheit or above since the compressor will shut down if the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.This could also be from low oil in the compressor.

Not cooling


every single component in your cooling unit is needed for it to work, so anything can shut it down. If you could provide more information as to what type of unit you have: is it a central heat and air package unit? or central split system (furnace indoors and condenser outside)? or a wall a/c? Does any part of the system/unit do anything?
