Replacement of compressor

Hi all,

I have an 3 + 1 setup for bedrooms and living room. Recently, my multi split unit starts to give problem. It will trip the RCCB after 2-3 hours of operation, after which it will trip it within minutes of operation if you switch it on again.

My guess is that the compressor is burning out, since the unit has been running for 6 years plus. The compressor is from Toshiba, model RAS3M20 (non-inverter). I am thinking about what compressor to replace. I hope to resuse the pipings to reduce costs and trouble. If I am not wrong, the Refrigerant should be R22. So, it should be better to stick to R22, since the R410 has higher pressure requirements ?

Anyone has any recommendations ?

Thanks.
