Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

We installed a Daikin heat pump in June 1996 Model FVY453CBV1 in Dunedin NZ. It stopped and a repairer said the compressor unit is rusted through & recommeneded a new heat pump. I am looking at whether there are alternative solutions and want to check whether it is economical to replace the compressors, or alternatively whether a new external unit can be purchased. Do heat pumps have a life in years? Is it risky to marry a new external unit to the existing internal unit? I appreciate your help Kevin Helm

Don't waste your time and money repairing a 15 year old unit you will just create more
headaches for yourself, And a new outdoor unit would not be compatable with your
old indoor head there have been to many changes over the years.
replace the whole thing you have had your monies worth out nof it.
lay it to rest in peace

Can I run a daikin mini split heat pump 3MXS24JVJU with a generaton


It depends on the SIZE of the generator. If your generator is designed to supply 240-volt A/C and handle the FLA (Full Load Amps) rating of your Indoor and Outdoor units, then, YES, of course you can run it with a generator.

Dear friend! Replacing spares for defective will not solve problem. But, you must know why it happened?
In your unit,Condenser unit was completely dust blocked. First clean it. And also replace running capacitor. If recently replaced, ignore it. Check motor for bearings. It's mechanism locked due to bearing worn out or weaken capacitor. Ask repairman to check with amps meter for fan and also with compressor. And also loose wiring if any. Compare with unit specified amps.Hope problem would solve now.
