Air Conditioning Services Alphington

During summers, the air conditioning system breaks down. And the common reason being failed capacitors. WtfixAir technicians can resolve your problem with our efficient air conditioning service Alphington. The capacitors are vital in the unit. They act like a battery that stores energy. And helps in spinning the indoor fan that blows cool air. However, there are two types of capacitors. The first one is a start and the other one is a run capacitor. The start capacitor provides enough power to start the compressor and fan. And the run capacitor keeps them running.

Why is my Air Conditioning Start capacitor not working?

Reasons for your faulty start capacitor may include any of these.

  1. Overheating: The capacitors are sensitive towards overheating. If the system gets overload then it may affect the capacitor. Also, the sun can cause overheating. However, running the unit for too long can cause such issues. So, make sure that you set the thermostat a little higher.
  2. Overage: It is likely that your capacitor’s ability to store and release the energy decreases over time. So, if your unit’s age is more than 5 years. Then you must replace the capacitor. 

Our air conditioning service Alphington skilled experts locate the problem in your unit and fix it in no time.

Why is my Air Conditioning Unit not responding to the remote?

In most cases, it is something as simple as a faulty handset or dead batteries, when an air conditioning unit stops responding to the remote. However, it may also mean something more in some cases. WtfixAir recommends that you follow these steps before you book a diagnostic callout from an air conditioning service Alphington if your air conditioning unit is not responding to your remote.

  1. Check the Remote

Check if the display on the remote is working or not. You can check this by seeing if you can read the information on it. If not, your issue will most likely be solved by a simple fix of a battery change.

Consider the proximity to the air conditioning unit. There cannot be objects or other furniture blocking the surface of the unit or the path of the sensor. The remote needs to be within 10 metres of the unit to function. 

2. Check the Unit

The unit could also be responsible for the remote malfunction. Press the buttons on the bottom right side of the unit manually to see if they function. If they do not respond to the remote but do function, you can assume the signal from the remote is not being recognised or not reaching the unit. 

Why Air Conditioning outdoor fan isn’t spinning?

It is possible that in the hot and humid season you run your unit for too long. Thus, the overloading may tend to inefficient operation. So, WtfixAir offers the best air conditioning service Alphington to serve all your problems. The malfunction of the outdoor unit will directly affect the cool air blowing inside. The air conditioners have two fans, outdoor and indoor. The indoor fan blows the cool air into the room. And the outdoor fan that blows air across the coil. It removes the heat from the air to cool it down.

To figure out if your outdoor fan is working. You can simply head out and if you see the spinning blades and humming sound. Then everything is alright. But if you do not notice the fan rotating then you need immediate servicing. Here are some possible reasons for your fan to be out of order.

  1. If the compressor is working but you do not notice the fan to spin. Then there may be some problems with the motor or capacitor. It is most likely that your motor is burnt out. Or the capacitor needs to be replaced.
  2. Another reason may include a lack of power or a faulty compressor contractor.
