Hi All,

need some advice here.
I am using a starmex system 3 invertor system which is 12 yrs old and it seems to have broken down.
I called an aircon guy for cleaning as it was blowing normal air instead of cool air.
the aircon came down and said one of the parts in the compressor is spoilt and there is no replacement in whole of Singapore.
he say the part is in a bunch of 3 and 1 failed.

He says I cannot buy starmex again as the new system would not fit my current piping and only dalkin system will fit my current piping.

anyone know if this is true that I can only buy dalkin aircon system to replace old starmex system?!?!?

Yes can be cause the compressor runing not smoothly on receiving gas.

The standard for 9k at 6.3mm & 9mm dia at least.
1/2" = 12mm dia too big already.

If inverter unit only suitable for 18k and above
1/2" is the insulator la. 1/4" is the 22G copper pipe (6.8-7mm).

Has anyone engaged Aron Putt from starcoolaircon recently? Able to share your experiences from the services he (or his partner) rendered?

oh, so just change the outdoor unit can liao ah... well, the indoor unit already quite old.. think might be a time to change also, so does it mean the piping for the old unit can no longer be used by the new unit?

Anyone know for those older flats with max total running current allowed of 8.5A and the house's aircon system is already provided with an additional 15A power point, does it mean the system will be running at full capacity or it will still be limited to 8.5A?

Power point just related to fuse on MSB only.
The higher load may lock at 8.5A for full tuns on at same time, if just turn on 2 units the power still runing on lower amp only.

That meant the Aircon won't kick in as higher & optimum capacity on the compressor, that meant full turns may take some time to cooling down, unlike non current limitation would be kick in optimum capacity & BTUs for quickly cool down the room.

hi a friend was recommended to consider this offer of a japan brand aircon sys1 inverter i think, brand new with full wty for under 480. before anyone start jump and attack, this offer was not from some subcon or individual no name seller, but by a rather renowned and even popular retailer here. and confirm not old or refurb set, is box brand new model. the only thing is installation is separate, about 200something. those recommending this said the product is genuine and the installation not bad. but my friend not sure because all us others usually talking in thousands and thousands, but don't mind can try see. asking on friend behalf, have anyone heard of this before..or any similar experience to share or to take note thanks!
