Questions about getting aircon

Hi all,

Intend to purchase a System 3 for my home but need advice as follows:
1. What brands can I consider if i want something that's value for money?

2. Who are the retailers that's offer more reasonable prices and good after-sale services?

3. Anyone has comments on Yamato insulation used by Best Tech?

4. How is the performance of York aircon ? Any user here?

No such things as value for money, u might get different quote from different company for the same model but it is always the installing parts that tricky. You wont go wrong with those big brands as they had branding to upkeep

They are the popular brand now along with Daikin.


Looking to replace my Hitachi air-conditioners soon. Are Mitsubishi Starmex the way to go?

Aircon problem

Hi All,

I am seeking help from aircon experts here as I am out of ideas already. I am having problems with my aircon.

All 3 fancoils shut down together after 1-2 hours. Error light blinking. Switch it on again and it switches off again after 1-2 hours. Keeps repeating.

Is it the fuse or fan or motor or pcb?

Any suggestions from anyone? Any clues to the problem, please? Thanks!!!

Hi,

My Mitsubishi air con compressor is very noisy.(humming)
Air con is still quite cold.

When I on the aircon, after 30seconds, the compressor fan will start moving and the noise will kick in. (Can i presume this is the compressor fan motor?). When i on more units, the louder the noise it makes.

I had a serviceman that came that said it is compressor problem. Wish to get 2nd opinion.

Is this a compressor fan motor or capacitator problem, or a compressor itself problem. Please advise and an estimated cost to replace.

Indoor unit is (MSXY-GA10VA) and it is a system 4

Thanks in advance

This is an inverter unit, shouldn't have any capacitator.
Most likely compressor or fan motor.
To verify if its compressor, monitor the noise level between operating one unit and four units.
If its compressor, the noise should be louder when four units are on at the same time.

Have you ask other aircon vendors like Gain City to quote for the same mitsubishi heavy system 4 and a system 1 setup ?

I have used them for my aircon installation in Dec 2015, they are not that much more expensive than the rest of the quotes I received. Their worksmanship is on the better side as I have not encountered any problems with my aircon so far.

Thanks for you prompt reply.

Actually even if only 1 unit is on, the noise level vary from time to time.

But if I on more units, confirm louder.

But I did stand by the window to see the outdoor compressor unit, the noise starts when the fan operates. However, I think the fan operates only when the compressor operates.

Does fan speed changes?

Thanks in advance!
