A short review on my 1 yrs old Mit Starmax aircron, and btw thru out this period i always clean my filter every 2 weeks and call pro to wash every 3 months, after using ea time i leave 1hr for fan mode and nvr eat in room.... but i'm having a very bad odour smell ( sometimes it smells like toilet) abt more than half of the time having these smells its damm disppointed... everytime after my cleaning the smell still there and after the washing by pro service 1 or 2 days ltr it came back... i hav contacted both Mit & courts both tech hav come down sevral times but failed to rectify.... all they say is might be due to bed sheets etc for the smell, so i asked them "so ur aircorn only can work in an empty room in order not to generate any smell?" and i tried the advice given by them open the window, placed charcoal ontop etc but result still the same... i wonder wats is the real problem zzz
Mind the sharing with us.. Can take some photo from your FCU as well?

Please remove out the filter and take on the cooling aluminium coil with fan blower too..

This 2 thing.... Usually is after chemical wash through the aluminium coil fins as cleaned.. don't have dust or debris sticks on...won't be create bad Smell at all.

Cooling coil should be clean like my photo below.



Also fan blower


Here at the back of fan blower can be left some bad smell too.


After cleaned them off and try to used Daiso filter for cover up as addition filter on top these are really help for user when used high fan speed and block some dirty dust and debris on the filter as well.


For my personal collection here.

From what i read, periodic gas topup is not required, unless there is a leak due to loose connections or improper installation.

My aircon has been good for 4yrs, is it possible the service crew did not reconnect properly after the recent cleaning 2 weeks ago?

one more thing, to be suspected on compressor or indoor fan motor an issue..
if system 2 and above still can check on each room and compare the airflow does meet on each room, if few room still the same way and blowing hot air, then the only way for claim on new compressor will do, unless the service guy they has touch the outdoor connections before.

Received below quote to replace my system 3:

Daikin Inverter System 3/R410/
Outdoor Unit – 3MKS71ESG – (R410A GAS) BTU: 24225
Indoor Unit – FTKS25DVM x 3

- They will dismantle and disposed existing aircon.

- Price above is use back existing copper piping, insulation, wiring, Isolator and trunking.

Is the price reasonable? Mit Starmex better right since is BTU 28000?

Below link better deal?

Hi for both at higher BTU on ME was better, even quiet mode or remove out interior parts for wash & clean.

Not sure your existing pipeline was runing R410A gas before?
If yes then use back for not an issue, if previously were R22 then shouldn't be a good.

If any issue very difficult to claim.

Back in 8yrs a go don't seems inverter models was common..

Anyway just check and see how was the concusion 1st.

Wanna change or repair will do, seldom used is the main concern also... From the unit won't last longer than using everyday.
