The Capacitor is a small device responsible for distribution of electricity in the aircon unit. A spoilt capacitor will not be able to supply electricity to the vital components of the Aircon, which will result in your air con not working at all. The capacitor gets damaged if your aircon is constantly over worked, meaning it often keeps running for long hours.

4. Evaporator coil or Condenser coil is damaged

Dirty evaporator coil like this would need chemical wash

The evaporator and condenser coil can collect grease dirt because of a mixture of dirt in the air and the water from condensation, which results in ineffective cooling. Gradually over time if the coils are left uncleaned this moist environment may lead to corrosion and eventually holes on the coil. Corrosion of the evaporator coil or condenser coil can result in complete failure of the aircon functionality.

Replacement Cost: $800 - $2000 depending on the capacity and brand

Contact your Aircon Service Center as it may be covered by warranty.

5. Damaged drain pan

The Drainage pan is responsible for collecting water from condensation and transferring it to the drainage pipes. A corroded or broken drainage pan will result in water leakage. Sometimes this can be fixed with super glue, but if the damage is severe we recommend replacing the drainage pan.

Replacement Cost: $40 - $80

Contact your Aircon Service Center as it may be covered by warranty.

6. Malfunctioning or spoilt indoor unit fan motor

The fan motor is a device which is responsible for spinning the fan blower. Excessive long running hours of your aircon cn over heat the motor and spoil it, resulting in complete failure of air conditioning. If such a situation arise, a complete replacement of the motor is essential.
