Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

My fujitsu heat pump died three days ago, purchased 6 years ago so warranty now expired. Service agent who sold me the unit suggested this model has caused many problems ''horror stories he said'' for his clients. $2400 to fix. Is there a way to track down particular models to determine if there is a fault history with them? This particular unit is model number ast24pba-w, 8.5 kW inverter. wdv

I have always believed in Samsung products...in fact each and every appliance of mine is a Samsung. I bought a 2 ton split for my boutique just about 1.5 yrs ago.

Needless to say they took 8 days to come and then kept the unit for a further 7 days. Exactly 2 weeks later the

Hi! Just moved in a shop with a Panasonic CS-140E51XE a/c unit installed. The unit doesn't work at all, displaying error code F6.

Goodman heat pump model CPKJ421B. Tripped breaker for outside unit two weeks ago. Reset breaker, tripped again today. Unit won't run now.

Possibly either the refrigerant is low or the low pressure switch is bad. Could a faulty switch, maybe losing and regaining contact quickly, trip the breaker? Could the refrigerant, just before

Hi All, I have a carrier reverse cycle airconditioning unit and about a week ago the digital thermostat blanked out. I spoke to an aircon repair tech and he suggested that the fuse is blown at the air handler and suggested that I can probably replace the fuse myself.

I have no issues checking the fuse if I know where to find it LOL, The model of the unit is
