Rain S/C condensor unit ?

by Michael
(Bedok, Singapore)

It happen when these few days back when it rain heavily, notice the condensing/compressor unit mounted outside window started running when all the inhouse fancoils are not "on".

Have to switch "off" breaker for air-con to stop it from running.

Assume that the cause is water gets into the outdoor unit, try to switch on breaker. This time the condensing unit did not turn on by itself.

The problem now is when I switch on fancoil, the condensing unit does not start up.

Can check whats the problem and how much to repair.

The air con is an old carrier model. Mounted @ 10floor HDB window tray (old HDB - not on pedestral)



Hi Michael,

Thank you for your submission.

By the look at what had happened to your air-conditioner. Most probably that the contactor inside the outdoor unit is faulty which causes the compressor to keep running when you switched off your indoor fan coil. We do need to do a troubleshoot on your air-conditioner to confirm that.

To engage on our air-con troubleshooting service, it will be $40.00nett exclude parts.

Any inquiry, feel free to contact us at 96192088.

Have a nice day !
