Aircon water Leaking

Aircon water leakage can be caused by a clogged drain line, malfunctioning condensate pump, dirty or frozen evaporator coils, or incorrect thermostat settings. To troubleshoot, check and clear the drain line, check the condensate pump, check and clean the evaporator coils and check the unit’s settings. If the problem persists, call a professional technician to diagnose and repair the issue. Regular aircon servicing can help prevent leaks and maintain the unit in good working condition. Some leaks can be sign of a major problem and can cause damage to the unit and the property.

  • Dirty evaporator coils or condenser coils.
  • Blocked condensate drain line.
  • Incorrect thermostat settings.
  • Faulty compressor or fan motor.

To troubleshoot, check the refrigerant levels, replace or clean the air filters, check and clean the coils, ensure the condensate drain line is clear, check the thermostat settings, and inspect the compressor and fan motor for any signs of malfunction. If the problem persists, it’s best to call for a professional technician to diagnose and repair the issue. Keep in mind that some issue can be serious and can cause damage if not fixed promptly.

Aircon Compressor Cleaning

Compressor cleaning

Air conditioning compressor cleaning is a process of removing dirt, dust, and other debris that can accumulate on the compressor over time. A dirty compressor can lead to a decrease in efficiency, and in some cases, can even cause the unit to stop working altogether. Here are the steps that are typically followed when cleaning an air conditioning compressor:

  1. Turning off the power to the unit: Before cleaning the compressor, it is important to make sure that the power to the unit is turned off to avoid any electrical hazards.

  2. Removing the outer casing: The outer casing of the compressor is typically held in place by screws or bolts, and should be removed to access the internal components.

  3. Cleaning the compressor coils: The compressor coils should be cleaned using a soft brush or compressed air to remove dirt, dust, and other debris. The coils should be thoroughly cleaned, and any debris should be removed.

  4. Clearing the condenser coils: The condenser coils should also be cleaned and cleared of any debris that may have accumulated on them.

  5. Removing debris and dirt from the compressor housing: The compressor housing should also be cleaned and any debris removed.

  6. Reassembling the unit: Once the cleaning is done, the outer casing should be reassembled and the power should be restored to the unit.

It’s best to have professional technician to perform the cleaning of the compressor, they have the knowledge and the tools to properly open the unit, remove the components and clean it properly. Improper cleaning can cause damage to the unit and even make the problem worst.

  • Blinking green light: This is typically an indication that the unit is running normally and is in cooling mode.

  • Blinking red light: This can indicate a malfunction or error with the unit, such as low refrigerant levels, a malfunctioning compressor, or a problem with the thermostat.

  • Constant blinking red light: This could indicate a more serious problem, such as a refrigerant leak or a malfunctioning compressor. It could also indicate a problem with the outdoor unit.

  • Flashing blue light: This could indicate that the air filter needs to be cleaned or replaced.

  • Constant blinking blue light: This could indicate a problem with the unit’s airflow or a malfunctioning sensor.

It’s important to note that the meaning of the blinking lights can vary depending on the brand and model of the unit, it’s recommended to check the user manual or contact the manufacturer to understand the meaning of the blinking lights. If you are unsure what a specific light is indicating, or if the problem persists it’s best to call for professional technician to diagnose and repair the issue.
