could be just a simple capacitor issue. It looks like a mini can of Coke. Usually white or silver. Abt $200 labor and part.
Also can be low gas. As u say 2weeks then now compressor fan not running. How old?
My friend change the capacitor himself only $20 nia

Panasonic provides good quality air, Daikin provides durability. Mitsubishi and Samsung are ok as far as I can tell. I would recommend inverter units from Panasonic or Daikin. Courts and Gain City should be good places to look at. Coolserve is pretty good too.

Just sharing...

After 3 months of installation, am finally done with e search of a more economic configuration on my FTKS25DVM single split in a master-bedroom.

Temp: 26
Fan Speed: 2/5

Temp: 25 (At 26, it became very stuffy.)
Fan Speed: Auto

Temp: 25 (Stagnant for now and I hope I won't have to go lower.)
Fan Speed: 2/5

I've concluded that Auto mode costs me $12.00 more than manually selected fan speed with consistent number of hours used each night.

**Note that air filters are washed once fortnightly and no servicing done as yet.

I jus got the same set at gain city expo last sunday .. price is $3059 with free 32" LED Toshiba TV.

I check with All best yday. The price is $2899nett

all price is with installation.

My relative quoted me $3250 all in, including dismantling my current units. I have not checked any air-con shops yet.
Can someone advise if this is a good price?
If not, what should be the market price?

Mitsubishi System 3
Condenser: MXY-3A28VA
Blower: MSY-GE10VA x 3

Went to gain city this evening, was quoted $4399 for mitsubishi starmex sys 4 inverter. Price inclusive of install of bracket and dismantle of existing 2 aircon units and a compressor. On top of that, they offer the 4+1 years warranty free.

Find it quite pricey.

Fujistu is a real nice product to use They provide very good service and the products are excellent. As far as mitsubishi starmex is concerned I have no idea about that. I hope this will help you out.

can i know. for new flat

do you guy paint the wall first or install air-con then paint.

it the dust i am worried about.
Why are you worried about the dust? Just clean it. First paint the wall and then install air-con the clean one.It will make your work tidy. If you do the reverse that is if you install air-con before painting might be that your air-con gets paint strokes by mistake.

Need your advice.

I'm moving into a resale condo very soon once my tenant moves out. As the existing non-inverter split aircon system (2+2+1) is very old, would like to replace with a new system.

My floor area are as follow:

Master bedroom - 17m2
Bedroom 2 - 13m2
Bedroom 3 - 13m2
Hall & dining - 38m2

Usage pattern are the 3 bedroom to be turned on at night and the living and dining as required.

One contractor proposed the following 3+2 system:
Bedrooms - Panasonic CU-3S27MKZ + CS-S12PKZW x 1(Master) + CS-S9PKZW x 2 (Bedrooms)
Hall & dining - Panasonic CU-3S27MKZ + CS-S15PKZW x 2nos

Will be re-using existing piping as so far no problem with the aircon unit.

Price quoted is $5,040.

1) Is price reasonable.
2) Also, should I stick to 2+2+1 system instead.

To Misran,
This price is reasonable.
For 2 + 2 + 1, the benefits is that your master room is single system, so when one compressor is down, u still have the other 2 for usage.
For ur current proposed setup, all 3 rooms share the same compressor.

Thanks for your prompt advice, terumo.

In your opinion, 3+2 system is okay?

For my scenario, would there still be comprehensive warranty for the 1st year? Also, anything I should emphasize to the installer since they're reusing the piping for a system with a new refrigerant,e.g. cleaning the pipe, leak testing,etc?

To misran,

U can pay additional charge to get a pressure test done to confirm the status of ur piping before installing the aircon units.

Need some comments from the aircon guru here.
I intend to replace my aircon units

Was quoted the following

Daikin Inverter
Model : RKD50BVM / FTKD50FVM
Cap : abt 17K BTU
Single unit for the hall
Cost : $1,850

For my 3 bedrooms
Model : 3MKD75DVM / FTKD25DVM*2 , FTKD35DVM (master bedroom)
Cost : $3400

So did the shop treat me as a Robert or the price is reasonable?
of cos workmanship will also play apart
