In the ever changing climate of Melbourne, where air conditioners are regularly used in our day to day life, encountering issues with your Panasonic inverter air conditioner can cause a lot of discomfort and frustration. At DGB Refrigeration Heating & Cooling, we understand the importance of a smoothly functioning air conditioning system. In this article, we will talk about the most common issues that you can encounter with your unit and some troubleshooting tricks and tips.
If your Panasonic Inverter Air Conditioner is running into some issues, from refusing to turn on to weird smells or odd noises, the following are the most common issues that you can run into with your Panasonic Inverter Air Conditioner and how you can troubleshoot them:
If your Panasonic inverter air conditioner is not turning on, you can start by checking the basics first. First, make sure that the unit has active power supply. If the unit still doesn’t turn on, inspect the fuse box, plug connections, and remote batteries. A simple reset by flipping the air conditioner’s circuit breaker can often do the trick. If the issue persists, our expert technicians at DGB Refrigeration Heating & Cooling are just a call away at 03 7038 6918.
Is your Panasonic inverter air conditioner not heating or cooling on their respective modes? You can start by checking the temperature settings on your remote control – make sure that you have the correct mode (COOL or HEAT) and a suitable temperature setting. If the mode and temperature setting is correct, you can also try cleaning the air filters for optimal performance.
If the indoor unit of your Panasonic inverter air conditioner is leaking, there is no need to panic. While minimal water droplets are normal, significant leakage signals a problem. It may be caused by a broken or clogged drain pipe, or disconnected components. For quick assistance, reach out to the licensed technicians at DGB Refrigeration Heating & Cooling to address the issue promptly.
If the remote controller of your Panasonic Air Conditioner has become unresponsive, you can start by inserting new batteries and ensuring correct installation. Other than that, you can try resetting the remote by using a pin to press the “RC” button at the bottom right of the remote controller. If the issue persists, you may need to replace the remote controller. Our team at DGB Refrigeration Heating & Cooling can take the load off of your shoulders and help you with that.
If you experience strange sounds or unpleasant odors coming from your Panasonic air conditioner, this means that your unit is in urgent need of professional attention. Buzzing, clicking, or hissing noises may indicate underlying issues, that require a technician’s assessment. If you are experiencing a damp smell, this may hint at mold or dirty filters, while a rotten egg smell may require professional intervention for potential pests.
If your air conditioner unit keeps switching off when you are trying to turn it on, it may be due to incorrect timer settings or this short cycling may also be due to a faulty timer that would cause your system to turn off. You can try adjusting the timer and observe. If the problem persists, a professional inspection is advisable. Short cycling may be attributed to overheating, a faulty thermostat, or insufficient maintenance, and these issues should only be addressed by our skilled technicians.
If your Panasonic air conditioner is constantly running without tripping, this may signal a dirty condenser coil, faulty thermostat, or damaged control board. Check for cleanliness in the outdoor unit and signs of fluctuating room temperature. For effective diagnosis and solutions, our technicians at DGB Refrigeration Heating & Cooling are skilled to handle these complexities. Dial 03 7038 6918 and let us inspect your unit and fix it for you.
If the outdoor unit of your Panasonic air conditioner is failing to start, it may be due to power issues or a tripped circuit breaker. Make sure that the unit has active power supply and circuit breakers are not tripped. If the unit is still malfunctioning, it requires professional assistance for a thorough examination.
If the timer light of your indoor unit is flashing, your system has encountered an error. However, you will need to do some extra steps as the error code doesn’t show up on its own. So, in order to find out the error code, do the following:
⦁ Locate the “check” hole on your remote control and insert and pin into it. Hold it for about 5 seconds and then let it go once the screen becomes blank.
⦁ Next, press and hold the “Up” button until you hear a long beep. The fault code will now appear.
