Hihi..

I am considering between the following three brands:
1) Misubitshi Electric (MXY3A)
2) Mitsubitshi Heavy Industrial (SCM60ZJ-S)
3) Midea Luna 9A2/9A5

Which one will you all recommend?
Give Midea a miss, within 1 month the service crew have already came down 5 times. Really is the worst aircon i have use

Having a Mitsubishi unit (Mr. Slim) for about 7-8yrs, can’t remember the model, whether invert or not? Only have 2 blowers one in MBR 1.5HP 12K BTU (size of 2 bedrooms) and one more in other room, 9K BTU. MBR has been leaking in recent months. Did 2 time complete chemical washing this year alone, vacuuming at the drainage pipe, problem solve for a while then back again.

Just did a chemical wash last night, technician inspected the compressor, top up gas and so on. Later when trial run, suspect compressor not running, pour water over compressor and observe “smoke” rising, saying overheating, waited a while and continue to pour water till cool further and blower starting to blow cool air. Problem solved and technician left. Later on the aircon again and no cool air at all, only blowing wind but amount of wind did improve after the chemical wash.

So guys, any advice on what is happening?
Shall proceed with repair or simply replace the complete system?
Need a system 2 only, with usage mainly in MBR (size of 2 bedroom), any recommendation?
Due to concealed piping and trunking, prefer to reuse existing? Any comments?

Your compressor jammed, cause overheating. Think replace new system better. Not worth to replace the compressor.

Hi all,
My 8yrs old Dakin is inverter is now having this strange problem.

One of the room's unit will automatically power on by itself. You cannot off it neither using the remote or the power button. You will have to off the aircon main power switch.

My master bedroom when on will power off itself after sometime.
You cannot on it again using the remote/power button on the
condenser unit. Have to reset the main power switch.

I got the feeling that the unit in my study room is the culprit. Whenever the master room unit power off itself, the unit in the study
room will power on.

Any kind advise what could be wrong? Can I just disconnect power on the problematic unit?

THanks

Just to keep u update on my Midea sys 2 aircon.
Pls DONT BUY THIS CHINA Brand!
Only after 2 months, the service crew have aleady come down 5 times and have aleady change 1 unit of my single split unit.
After which air con some time cold some time not cold.
Ask the guy to come down check, set at 17 deg, room temp can only hit 25 and the F**ker dare to tell me it is cold.
All the excuses starts to come out

Dont even touch this Brand
i saw the internal of the unit, so poorly done. the air filter look like a toy model. the edges are not done properly. avoid this brand at all cost.

Friend. I think sometimes it's not the product but the service team. Because a product for a multi-national company should at least work to the minimum specs.

The service team is the problem. Singapore aircon business IMO is very dark. Like my previous Samsung aircon. The service team is by a certain 3 letters company. They seriously Bo sim. Really ultimate smoke bomb. They can tell lies such as inverter R410 type not as cold as R22 aircon. All sorts of lies. They damage my aircon insulation simple use aircon tape to cover and didn't bother to vacuum dry the pipe before charging refrigerant and claims everyone also fix aircon that way, etc.

What I did was to take pictures of everything and email the company. I change for Mitsubishi for free. Really IMO it's the lack of proper knowledge and training of the technician for most of local aircon service company. A good aircon with lousy installation can work ok. A cheap aircon with lousy installation cannot work. That's probably the problem.

As mentioned, your outdoor pcb faulty. Yours should be 3mk75 or 4mk75.
