Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I have a fujitsu reverse cycle air conditioner,it wasnt working(not blowing cold air only room temp air like a fan).air con tech came over,re-gassed it,tried air con that day,worked fine.didnt need to use it for a few months,re-tried it,no cool air again,i am thinking of a leak.My question is the air con is about 10 years old,if cause of problem is a leak,is it worthwhile fixing it(i would need to pay someone parts and labour,could not do this job myself),or to just bite the bullet and get a rep

Hi,

\015\012The A.C is 10 years old which is a ideal shelf life for the A.C. If there are any leaks I would never ever try repairing it at home becuase if there is a leak then that means that the entire GAS which helps in the cooling has gone out. The repairing costs are very high and in your case as the A.C is really ols even a repair would not provide you a guarantee of the A.C working effectively.

\015\012One of the best A.C that I would suggest you is "Carrier A.C" which are low in power consumtion and excellent cooling.
Hi,

getting a new air condition would be advisable cause you might try to fit a problem with a particular cost of money and later you might find out that it is not only one fault it has.


Getting a new air conditional will be advisable. You can get a chico air condition or saiko, They are both asian product and they are ok.

I can not really give you the exact price, cause where i am the currency are different. You can check on line so that you can see the price difference.

Take care.

Compressor I have a air condition unit that blows out cold air for a little while and then the air in neither cold nor hot. I had someone come and check it out and they said the compressor was bad. Is that really the problem or could it be something else? The model I have is Intertherm T3RC-042K. I just don't want to have to spend that much money on fixing the compressor and that is not the problem. If it is the problem, is it something that can be done yourself or does a professional need to do

A/C Model: FAC107P1A My unit is not putting out cold air. The temp wire is not touching the coils. I've cleaned the filter, and behind it. What do you think the problem is?

Air conditioner runs for a few hours and it works - it cools the house. Then it stops cooling - the fan still runs but it doesn't blow out cool air any more. It seems like it's overheating or something. It will blow out cool air if it has not been turned on in a while but once it's on too long it stops. I was told it could be the fan motor and the a/c guy changed the fan motor today but that didn't fix the problem. Now he says it might be the compressor or that I need a new system. I'm jus

I have a Mastercool II airconditioner, which is approximately 5 - 7 yrs old. Water has been overflowig from the unit. I believe the float probably needs to be replaced. I have no experience working with air conditioners and would like to fix the problem. If I purchase another float, what type of float do I need to purchase?; Is there anything else I need to check to see why the water is overflowing? Thank you for your help.


What you have is an evaporative cooler, it should be serviced every year, but most people can't afford that so they let it go or do it themselves.

Hi, I have 2 Toshiba compressors (PH170X & PH160X), New, for air conditioners. Can they be used to pump air? Does this cause any problems? Do they need to be filled with oil, and if so how much? They have 3 electrical connections on top marked S / R & C. I believe R is for Red - Active, what do the other letters stand for? I would appreciate any assistance. Regads Helmut.


No they will not pump air. the oil in the compressor circulates in the freon, the freon also cools the compressor. these run on 230 volts c-common r-run, and s- start from a capacitor. Sell them to a dealer ... Air Conditioners
