Chigo aircon components fault and test methods

Ordinary compressor

Ordinary test (power off)

Testing method: Check the compressor by eyeballing first. If there has burnt vestiges on the surface of compressor or the compressor gives out the bad smell, the reason mainly is that the winding is burnt. If the compressor terminal is burnt, mostly it is caused by the heavy current or the bad contact.

Resistance test

Short circuit: Measure resistance of each winding by universal meter, if the resistance value is lower than the standard, the winding may short circuit.

Open circuit: Measure resistance of each winding by universal meter, if the resistance value is infinite, the compressor winding may open circuit.

Electric leakage & insulation test

Measure resistance between the points of winding and other part of compressor by universal meter, if the resistance value is infinite, means no electric leakage and the insulation is perfect. If the resistance value is tiny or zero, electric leakage may exist in compressor or insulation material may be aged or broken.

AC motor of indoor and outdoor unit

General inspection

Testing method: In the case of non-power,twist motor rotor by hand,meanwhile shaking motor. checking is there any rust,whether blocked.

Fault judgement: If the motor rotor can’t twist, that means the motor blocked. when shaking motor, there should be no abnormal noise, if the noise of inside the motor is small, it means motor shaft loose. If the noise of inside the motor is big, it means there is sundries inside of motor or electrical components loose.

DC resistance

  1. Turn-to-turn short circuit: measure entire winding resistance by multimet,if the difference between measured value with standard value is larger,it means turn-to-turn short circuit.
  2. Opencoil: measure entire winding resistance by multimet, if the resistance is ∞,means opencoil.

Electric leakage & insulation test

Measure resistance between the points of winding with other part of motor by universal meter, if the resistance value is infinite, means no electric leakage and the insulation is perfect. If the resistance value is tiny or zero, electric leakage may exist in motor or insulation material may be aged or broken.

  7. 2003(IC): 2003 is an inverter, in the working condition, input and output potentials are always contrary.
  8. Diodes: choose “diode” from multimeter, then the red pen connect positive pole, black pen connect negative pole, the resistance should be a few hundred ohm. The reverse resistance is infinity, otherwise diode is bad.
  9. Transistor: NPN transistor: choose “diode” from multimeter, red pen connect base, black pen connect other two feet and the resistance should be a few hundred ohm, otherwise the transistor damaged. PNP transistor: choose “diode” from ultimeter, black pen connect base, red pen connect other two feet. and the resistance should be a few hundred ohm, otherwise the transistor damaged.
  10. Infrared Receiver Module: choose “diode” from multimeter, black pen connect power pin, red pen connect other two feet. and the resistance should be a few hundred ohm, otherwise the transistor damaged.

DCR

  1. turn-to-turn short circuit: check by multimeter, select the appropriate range, measure the resistance of transformer winding, if the deviation between real resistance with the standard resistance is great, that means the inter-turn short circuit and outlet the open circuit.
  2. Coil Open circuit: check by multimeter, select the appropriate range, measure the resistance. If the resistance is ∞, that means transformer coil open circuit or open circuit.

Insulation inspection

Insulating property between the shell and the iron core

Testing method: check by multimeter, select the appropriate range, measure the resistance. If the resistance is
∞or tens of thousands of ohms, means insulating property is good. If the measured resistance of the smaller or 0,means core screen has been destroyed.

Insulation between the windings

Testing method: check by multimeter, select the appropriate range. one pen contacts with the transformer primary, the other contacts with secondary output transformer. If the resistance is ∞ or tens of thousands of ohms, means insulating property is good. If the measured resistance of the smaller or 0,means core screen has been destroyed.

Four-way valve

General inspection

Visual inspection: pull coil of each power cord, wires should be no break phenomenon.

DCR

  1. Turn-to-turn short circuit: Check by multimeter, select the appropriate range, measure the resistance. If the resistance smaller than the standard resistance.it means four-way valve turn-to-turn short circuit.
  2. Coil Open circuit: Check by multimeter, select the appropriate range, measure the resistance. If the resistance is ∞, it means four-way valve open circuit

Insulating property

Testing method: check by multimeter, select the appropriate range. one pen contacts with input terminal, the other contacts with body. If the resistance is ∞ or tens of thousands of ohms, means insulating property is good. If the measured resistance of the smaller or 0,means core screen has been destroyed.

Run on power

Testing method: connect the four-way valve and the electrical components, connected to rated power; change the mode between cooling and heating mode, check whether the four-way valve could correctly change.

Fault judgement: if the four-way valve could not change correctly, means four-way valve bad or wire partial short-circuit fault.

Step motor

General inspection

Visual inspection: check whether the appearance of step motor is burnt, rust. If have, that means the winding of motor is broken. In the case of non-power, hand knob step motor’s output shaft, if there exist strange noise, that may be caused by driving wheel not matching or loose for connecting piece.

Check torque

Self-positioning Torque: under the action of this torque, step motor should not lose, not jitter, non-skid.

Resistance test

  1. short circuit: Measure resistance of each winding by universal meter, if the resistance value is lower than the standard, the winding may short circuit.
  2. open circuit: Measure resistance of each winding by universal meter, if the resistance value is infinite, the compressor winding may open circuit.

Check on running

Testing method: make sure step motor running with load, there shouldn’t be unusual noise. if there is unusual noise, it is caused by rust or wear. If the step motor does not work, most is due to open coil, short circuit, or rust.
