Hey guys, I need help fixing my air con, but I don't know exactly what the problem is. Sometimes, when I turn it off, the engine keeps working as if it didnt, even the wind hole closes. Is this a common problem? Can I fix it by myself or is it a job for a pro? Pic is the model

that's indecipherable, the engine as in the fan or the compressor?
>>
>>929310
The compressor may continue running for a period after you switch it off, especially if you quickly turn it on and then off again.

This is to prevent damage to the compressor as it requires oil to circulate while it is running.

Similarly, the exhaust fan may continue running for a few seconds/minutes after it is switched off to prevent overheating.

How long is the 'engine' continuing to run after you switch it off?
>>
>>929310
does it eventually turn off and does the outside unit cease to run? If so then your set. Heat pumps slowly let off and let on the electricity to reduce the startup amperage which plays in part to why they are energy efficient.

I think it's the fan

>>929321
I waited 20 minutes before cutting the power, it was making weird, watering sounds by that time.
>>
>>929322
The water is probably condensation dripping off the evaporator into the collector and being drained away.
>>
>>929322
Is there any other symptoms? Is the air conditioner not cooling properly?

This sounds like normal operation to me.
>>
>>929327
But does it really take that long to stop the fan? I'm talking 20 minutes after turning off.
>>
>>929336
It's not like it's doing any damage to leave the fan running, leave it for like.., an hour and see if you still have a problem, if it doesn't, refer to the manual for your unit.

You can also call the company that installed it, or the company that made the airconditioner.
