who is the installer?
PM me if you're interested with my installer, who is the boss of a small locally registered aircon company. I think he did a decent job.

Daikin contacted me finally to offer apology for the inconveniences caused and a small extension of warranty, but refused to replace the faulty brand new compressor. They want to do some on-site welding on the compressor parts in the next attempt to fix the issue, which means i have to plan another leave again and clean up the mess after they are done, regardless of the result. No other choice on my end if i want this resolved asap. My disappointment with Daikin just continue to slide...

Oh man... Initially I was deciding between starmex 2 ticks or daikin 3 ticks system 3. Daikin seem better to have a 15 month extended warranty. But I decided to go to starmex 2 ticks instead due to the overwhelming support for starmex.

To my knowledge, most brands will just replace the faulty parts during the warranty period.
To replace the whole unit will be on a case by case basis.

hmm.. Seems like a lot of comparison between Daikin & Mitsubishi.

Thinking to go either of these System 3 model. Any review for the Panasonic model?

Panasonic :
CU-3XS27RKZ / CSXS9RKZW x 3 (3 ticks)

Mitsubishi :
MXY3A28/MSYGE10 x 3(2 ticks)

Both Enquicern Cool & Cold Engine are quoting comparable pricing for both models. Anyone with experience with either company ?


Thanks!

Yes, replacing parts when it broke down during warranty is totally fine. But my case was Daikin sold me a brand new defect unit but refused to replace it. The only option I have was to sacrifice a few annual leaves to allow them to come multiple times to my place to troubleshoot and try to fix the issue by welding and replacing the part, not to mention the cleaning up i had to do after each day.
And so, after paying the brand new price for a 5-ticks Daikin 2 weeks ago, i can only settle for a refurbished unit now + 3 days leaves gone!

Anyone use Creation Aircon Corner before? Their price seems very competitive. I googled the name and got some bad reviews way back in 2009-2010. No fresh comments though.

mitsubishi 5 tick QC issues is it a coincidence? could it be the installers didn't bend the pipe with the bender tool hence the noise coming from compressor, also didn't evacuate the system.

5 tick looks good on paper cause i need on 24/7 for 1 room, master room 3 to 8 hours daily.


daikin smile series using york parts? during partial load does the outdoor unit fan slow down like mitsubishi 2 tick

Hi, staying at a 3rm HDB top corner unit, my room is extra hotter by 2-3 degrees compared to other rooms.

I need a system 1 to be installed in my room. Looking at Panasonic and Mitsubishi models. Panasonic one is about $600 while Mitsubishi is about $1000.

Any good recommendations?

Anyone managed to get good cleaners or service folks to clean their ac to remove the sour smell? I service mine regularly yet smell is still present. Ac is less than 2 yrs old starmex.

Dun cook - max 2-3x a mth. Bedroom ac switched on every night. Living room every 2-3 days on a few hrs when watching tv. Service every 3mths. Even did chemical cleaning for the last 2 rounds.

One of the service man said the smell sucked up from the drainage outlet pipe at the toilet / shower. I've also flushed that with anti mold drain cleaner every 2 wks.

Smell is adhoc not all the time so quite hard to replicate.

Anyone managed to solve?

Thanks
