Repair for your Air Conditioner

Aug 17, 2007
The kind of problems one generally faces with air conditioners has a lot to do with proper maintenance and cleaning of the air conditioner. If one regularly cleans the grilles of the air conditioner and along with it the filter, then the life and the efficiency of the air conditioner both increase. At times we find that due to deposit of dust and debris inside the filter the ducts get choked and the air conditioner loses much of its effectiveness. This problem can easily be taken care of by just cleaning the filter properly and reinstalling it after it has dried.

The common problems that one encounters with an air conditioner are:

- Faulty cooling,
- Water pools being collected below the air conditioner,
- Abnormal sounds when the unit is switched off,
- The thermostat not functioning properly, etc.

Many of these problems can be solved by the owner himself if he is confident about handling the device. Generally one shouldn't call for professional help for such minor problems as these. An important tool when it comes to the repair of an air conditioner is the instruction manual that comes with it.

Whatever kind of repair you want to carry out, you should always take care to see that the device has been switched off. Generally removing the grille is a simple task but for those units where the fan comes attached to the grille. Care should be taken that you don't snap any of the wires while trying to pull out the grille. If you have to unscrew any wires make sure that you remember the order they were in. you can use different colored markers for this purpose. If you don't recall which was where, things can get a bit out of hand.

A problem like water accumulating under the front portion of the air conditioner can be attributed to leaking ducts. The solution is simple - just remove the old duct and replace it with a new one. A tripped fuse can cause the air conditioner to go completely dead. Again this can be fixed by replacing the faulty fuse. Read the manual carefully before you attempt to pull out the old fuse and install the new one.

However, when you think things are beyond your capability you must call a technician trained in dealing with air conditioners. The device is much too expensive for you to fiddle around unknowingly.
