Hi guys

I need some advice .. my aircon was serviced by this person called A*** from K* Engineering (I googled and found him from some forum recommendations) .. he came to repair my aircon - replaced a motor capacitor and cleaned it for $155 altogether. Spent about an hour. We tested the aircon and seems ok, although we didn't on it long enough to realise it's not as cold as before.

The 2nd or 3rd day, we realised that the aircon is really not as cold as it used to be.. we thought could be the way we tuned the remote control so we adjusted it a bit and decided to try it for a while more..

About 2 weeks on, we realised the aircon is really not as 'chillingly' cold as before. So I called A*** for advice. He says could be the compressor and has to maybe change the whole set.. but he needs to take a look before he can tell... and he is charging another $20 just to come and take a look again.

My question is.. is there supposed to be a warranty sort of thing for the first time he repaired for me? Am I covered under some kind of law? I mean, if he didn't managed to get it repaired the first time, and he charged me $155 for it already, and did not managed to solve my problem, isn't this his problem and he should be responsible for it? And now he wants to charge me again for transport (if I didn't subsequently take on his advice to change/repair stuff) or repair (change of compressor or whole aircon), is this the way the aircon service industry works? Sorry but my aircon never spoil before until now so a bit not well informed.

Thanks to all.
Transport charges I don't think can refund , u can call them to refund back the motor capacitor money . if I not wrong your air con is more then 5 years old .

My last encounter with Gain City was, compressor and installation (includes piping and electrical cable) has a warranty of 5 years. The rest of the parts has a warranty of 3 years.

i was quoted Mitsubishi Heavy Industry System 3 for around 2600$+, with removal of old a/c and piping.

I would like to know whether this Mitsubishi Heavy Industry and the strongly advertised Mitsubishi Starmex are the same or not?

I was told by the Dr. Cool staff that both from the same manufacturer, but different dealer who market it differently.

If so, are the performance of both same specification of their aircon system the same?

Anyway, I just bought a resale flat that comes with Toshiba RAS-3M20UAX5. Searched on the internet revealed that this is a 1 tick non-inverter. My concern is whether this system 3 very power guzzling?

I also have a small upgraded utilty room at the back of my kitchen. The dimension is around 2.3 by 2.2 m, which I intend to use it as my gym room. I'm wondering what kind of cooling system I can install that would not take any space in the room?

Please advise.

Thanks.

Dr cool air con price is a bit high ...Mitsubishi Heavy Industry and Mitsubishi Starmex is not the same company .
Toshiba RAS-3M20UAX5 . is good not must complaint . Try to test run your old air con for 6 -9 hour , if is cool why u need to change ?
