Myself Ravi from India
we have a Voltas 1.5 Ton AC which is 2.5 years old. Last year we refilled gas in it and since last week the AC is not cooling well, it is cooling in spurts.
So yesterday we called a technician he told that gas needs to be topped up and gave estimate of $/- gas topup + $/- Service Charge
but today when he came and checked the outdoor unit he told that there is no gas at all in the AC and it will cost $ for full gas recharge, he probably must have released all gas when opening the nut, he mentioned that the gas pipe / pipe from indoor to outdoor unit is full of snow / ice when ac is running means there is no gas at all, ,, then inspite of doing full gas recharge that AC was not cooling well then he checked and told that compressor has got cut off and is not running ,and checked and changed the capacitor. Then he charged additional $/- for the capacitor and the AC started cooling but after half hour again the AC was not working only fan seemed to work and compressor was not working.
Now again i have phone and called the technician here people are so amateur that any person without any professional qualification can start any trade. Now i am worried what happened to my AC.
and when itwill work fine.
Also the technician suggested to install a double booster stabilizer instead of a normal stabilizer. Telling double booster stabilizer will boost even 140 volts to 240 Volts whereas normal stabilizer boosts only 220-230 to 240 VOlts. Can someone suggest what could the probable problem be?
