Acson aircon diagnostic flows chart
Generally, there are two kinds of problems, i.e. starting failure and insufficient cooling/ heating. “Starting failure” is caused by electrical defect while improper application or defects in refrigerant circuit causes “insufficient cooling/ heating”.
Diagnosis of Electric circuit
The most common causes of air conditioner failure to ‘start’ are:
- Voltage not within ± 10% of the rated voltage.
- Power supply interrupted
- Improper control settings
- Air conditioner is disconnected from main power source
- Fuse blown or circuit breaker off.
Diagnosis of Refrigerant Circuit/ Application
There might be some causes where the unit starts to run but does not perform satisfactorily, example, insufficient cooling. Judgement could be made by measuring temperature difference of indoor unit’s intake and discharge air as well as running current.
