Having air cond light blinking problem? With the Malaysia hot weather, having an air conditioner at home is essential to many homes, especially those that are located in hot and humid regions. Air conditioning units can be pricey and they sometimes cause high energy consumption. It is important that you keep your units properly maintained, cleaned, and serviced to prolong its life and to avoid overworking it. When a unit is overworked, it tends to require more energy to operate, which of course translates to higher electricity bills.
Try to be more observant of your air conditioner. If it starts to give off a different sound or show erratic behavior, it may be time to have it checked by a professional. You can try to fix or trouble shoot some minor problems, but there are instances that it is better to leave the job to an expert. For instance, cleaning the filter is something that you can do regularly, while dealing with the internal circuit board is something that is beyond your technical knowledge.
If you happen to notice the lights in your air conditioner to be blinking, several factors could have caused this. You can try some minor fix before you start looking for a service technician: - When a blinking light problem occurs, your air conditioning system often shuts off too, meaning warm air is blown. You can switch off the circuit breaker of your Aircond unit, wait for a few seconds, and then switch it on again. For some, the unit will start working normally again. If it does not, you can check the wiring connection of the unit, but if this is complicated for you then you had better call a repair technician instead. - If your remote control has a "test" button, you can use it to determine the error code. You can then check on your manual what the error code means, or what problem it indicates so you have a better idea of what is causing the blinking light. Other remote controls do not have this button and requires you to press "temp up", "temp down", and "mode" at the same time. Continue pressing "temp up" until you hear a double beep, then press "mode" until you hear a continuous beep. The code will be displayed on your control. For other models, you can always refer to your manual for proper testing procedure. - If you have a multi system, a blinking light could mean that one of the systems is currently finishing an assigned mode, thus, preventing the other units to start normally. - You can also check the level of refrigerant in your system. A low charge can also cause this blinking problem. - Most manual that comes with your unit will say that a blinking light is an indication that your unit has to be serviced. This is a smart suggestion because tinkering with the wiring and components inside your air conditioner may further cause damage to the unit. Continued use of the unit with this warning may also further break it down. A blinking light can also indicate a problem in the circuit board, which of course requires immediate repair.
