    Air conditioner Maintenance Tips

    AC easily last 5 years, so its a waste of 11.8k for AMC. Daikin for eg gives 5 years warranty on the PCB, electronics and 10 years on the compressor.

    Plywood is tricky to get perfect cuts, I did work around it by being careful and using other straight plywood as guide, but one small error will make a big error. For cutting wood blocks like 2"x4" no issues. Only when cutting plywood,MDF etc. When I was making a battery box, for the frame I...

    DIY Tools

    If you look at any every day carpenter they use a marble cutter, its looks like a circular saw but it spins at 11000rpm, I have used this method several times they work, but cutting wood perfectly straight is tricky, since the a dedicated circular saw will have a wide base plate which prevents...

    Air conditioner Maintenance Tips

    No such thing as don't use before servicing. If the OD unit is in a dusty place, it will effect the cooling time or increased time to cool so more power consumption. Indoor units are mostly clean, atleast in my house even after 4 years, zero service calls. Just vacuum the indoor unit coil and...

    Need suggestions for buying AC

    You can install a whole house SPD, with a proper earth connection. That will help. In my house there are 4 earth rods spread out, I have installed the SPD to the output of the ELCB/RCBO. This way when there is a surge it forces the ELCB to trip.( downside is that it causes nuisance trip, due to...

    Need suggestions for buying AC

    The stabilizer not required is bad advise. Even though todays inverter AC can accept a wide voltage range just like your PC smps, its only when you cross the operating voltage be it 270v or even 300v , is when the damage will happen. Replacing a stabilizer is cheap, not the same case with a...

    Need suggestions for purchasing a new AirCon.

    Yes, if he used the gas to purge the system, then it will show lower amps, exactly by how much is a anyones guess, it varies from machine/ company etc. If there is air inside it will show highers amps( will also show higher pressure in the Gauge, I think he will have to be foolish to increase...

    Need suggestions for purchasing a new AirCon.

    It doesn't matter from where he takes the power from whether from a seperate electrical socket or from the AC unit itself. You should hear the vacuum pump running and it should run for 20min. When they use the gas to purge the system, basically at the expense of the gas, since it is under...

    Need some advice on purchasing Washing Machine

    That kind a resonance is a lot for a drain pump, is the drain hose under the machine or even the back of the machine touching something , either the machines body itself or the stand. Rubber dampers to wm legs and zip ties/ rope to hoses will fix that.

    Did he remove the transportation bolts. On watching the video again the noise is heard even after it stops spinning. Is the noise from the washing machine, if it is send it right back, since clearly its not supposed to do that.

    Need suggestions for purchasing a new AirCon.

    If he had used the gas to purge the system, then the clamp meter or escom meter will show a lower amp draw, it could be just 0.1 to 0.5 amp less then what is written in the AC specs sticker on the OD. So in this case they would add gas to the system until its shows the correct amp reading. In...

    Need suggestions for purchasing a new AirCon.

    The user manual will most certainly state that vacuum is a must. If you didn't see a vacuum pump wire being connected to any outlet or even the outdoor unit electrical terminals, then he didn't vacuum.

    Heat pumps and cooling AC are the same, its just that the heat pump has a reversing valve.

    Need some advice on purchasing Washing Machine

    Glad you could finally get the vibrations in check. Do wipe clean the door gasket after every single wash. The incompetence of techencians, repair persons is the main reason I do everything myself . 100% of the times I have better tools and instruments compared to the so called service technician.
