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
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?
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.
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.
