Last week my AC went kaput. Cant blame it, this Chennai heat! Started spewing out water from the internal unit. I called my trusted AC guy and he came home after a day. I trust him because he also teaches a few things about AC while he is fixing it.
Here are some things I learnt that could be helpful to you.
- In the outdoor unit of the AC there are two metallic pipes that go from the Internal to the external unit. If there is frosted ice on the small/narrow pipe then there is a problem with your compre$$or. If the ice frosting is on the bigger pipe, then it’s probably dust accumulation in your AC.
- You need to do a general service/ water clean the internal unit once in 6 months of use to remove all the dust accumulated.
- Keep the stabilizer off when not in use. We usually just leave it on, right? Don’t. It heats up the stabilizer and damages it.
