Aircon Problem 1: Aircon is Switching Off by Itself
Aircon may switch off by itself after operating for a while. This aircon problem is quite common for aircon which is 3 to 4 years old as the circuit board may start to malfunction. Sometimes this problem is due to the aircon remote control. You may wish to perform a hard reset on the remote control and observe if it solves the problem. If it is the circuit board problem, a replacement of the board should solve the problem.

Aircon Problem 4: Ice Formed on Aircon
Ice forming on the aircon can be due to low refrigerant level or airflow issue. This aircon problem surely requires you to contact an aircon specialist to examine the aircon. The low refrigerant can be due to refrigerant pipe leakage. The airflow issue can be a result of malfunctioning fan, restrictions at the air filters or obstruction at the air ductwork.
Aircon Problem 5 and 6: Smelly or Noisy Aircon
Smelly aircon is usually the result of dirty aircon or accumulation of water in the tray. You can easily overcome it with a good cleaning and servicing. The aircon chemical wash and aircon steam cleaning should remove the smell.
