Topics I've Started

mini split units

17 July 2012 - 06:48 PM

hey guys,

I have had to work on more and more of these units in the past few months.
Not that it isnt a blast to sit on the phone with lg while checking voltages connections...etc.
My point is that I would like to get more info on troubleshooting these things. I think that
it looks a little funny to customers when I'm walking around with my phone in one hand while
fixing thier ac....
any info on basic troubleshooting for these things would be fanastic...


What not to do to a frozen coil....

06 December 2010 - 05:20 PM

This is not quite a war story, but I thought it might fit in.
I was sent to install an airhandler this morning. At first everything seemed normal until the tenant(it was rental property) started ranting about how his landlord had made him pay 1000 dollars to have the unit replaced. It was then that I realized that the unit had no refrigerant in it at all and there was a hole in the evap coil about 1/8" in diameter. Upon questioning the ranting started again complete with punching walls,throwing things around, etc. Don't get me wrong, if he would have thrown anything even close to me he would have experienced an ass whippin. So with all the yelling this guy was doing one statement got me, and I qoute "I can't beleive that just because I chipped the ice off of it with an ice pick, that I sould have to pay a thousand dollars to replace it." After he calmed down a bit I continued my work, and was told that yes he did get a face full of refrigerant. The thing that realy got me is that he kept asking why it had iced over to begin with, when I told him I had no idea at this point and that it could have been as simple as a dirty filter, the ranting started again.
After all the crap I had to listen to I was happy to inform him at the end of the day that if I were his landlord I would have charged him the same amount and then kicked his ass out!
