Hi guys,

Recently, my master bedroom aircon has been operating alil crazily (while the rest are working fine).

It will switch on, blink a few times, and the flapper will close (with a constant blinking light).

Does anyone know what could be the problem?

& how much it would cost?

Many thanks in advance.

Anyone can recommend a decent aircon servicing company? My A/C is getting more cranky and might need a gas top-up.

Called Gain City, and they suggested the the indicative pricing for gas-top for a 3 FCU unit can be up to $100. Is that reasonable?

Having troubles with my aircon too.
Although I have a regular service contract, my aircon is not cold and the airflow not strong. Its a 3 year old Mitsubishi Electric system 3 inverter model. One of the rooms one is fine but the other two are noisy and not cold, what do you think is the problem..... Wonder if I should pm bro hockwang.

Believe it's R22 as it's a really old aircon. Could you recommend me a place that has decent services?

Hi,

I think my Daikin sys 3 inverter aircon having some problems.

The indoor units were serviced a month ago. Now they are not cold and generated buzzing sounds. One unit had odours coming out too.

Appreciate if anyone could recommend a good and reliable aircon service company with reasonable rates.

Thank you!

Gaincity service is more xpensive & less efficient nowadays. I called them up to service my blower and it charged me $45 for 1st unit (2nd, 3rd at $25 respectively). T price compares a year ago was $35 1st unit(& so 2nd, 3rd at $25). I don mind to pay a bit more if the service is good but that is not the story..

What happen is gain city's policy changed to money minded nowadays. To me, its service is not longer rated as good, compares to a year ago. I use to call them up to service my aircon for the pass 4 years. Now I have to pay them $45 every visit, regardless its technicians have done a proper job or not, or under a month of service warranty. Gaincity ONLY warrants you FOC if your aircon is waterleak during the cover period. Otherwise repeat job you have to pay.

That was a 3 week's ago when I called gaincity to service my aircon. My blower was not cool and less wind flow(even in max), so I called up. After the technician serviced the blower, it's cool and windy(max) and I was satisfy. But it only last for a couple hours, I still consider it cool but wind flow is low. So I called gaincity up and was told I have to pay another $45 for next visit. I was unhappy and told them my aircon was not cool after service but gaincity insisted I have to pay $45 for next visit even thought it's a repeat job. I talked to a service manager and I was been told the same story.

So IF you decide to call gaincity, ask them clearly and see if you want them to service your aircon for repeat pay$$. I believe there are many available service for $45... Gaincity is out of my mind!
