In this article, we will list the main causes of these problems and tell you what to do in this or that case. In the comments below, you can share your experience and recommendations on why the remote controls from air conditioners do not work and how you can fix this problem.
When the air conditioners do not respond to the control panels, the masters advise you to do the following:
Plug the AC plug into the wall outlet if it is disconnected;
Check if other electrical appliances are working in your home;
Make sure that the remote control batteries are installed and the polarity is observed;
Replace the batteries with new ones;
Wipe the decorative panel of the air conditioner, it should not be dust and stubborn dirt.
If you have done all the steps, do not rush to blame the split system. Do another check. Turn on the camera on your phone and point it at the remote’s light bulb located on top. At the same time, press the power button.
If the phone screen shows that the light bulb lights up, then the remote control is working properly and it’s really about the air conditioner. If the light bulb is not lit, you will have to buy a new remote control.
Buying a new remote didn’t help? Use another tip: try to turn on the air conditioner not from the remote control, but using the buttons on the body of the device. How to do this, we tell you below. If the device turned on and began to cool the room, then the problem is still in the remote control, but in the receiver of the air conditioner.
When you can’t do it yourself
If after all the checks you were unable to determine the exact cause of the problem, call the wizard. Only an experienced specialist can get to the bottom of it and, if necessary, fix the problem in a matter of hours.
We do not recommend disassembling the air conditioner body and trying to find the damage yourself, if you do not have enough experience. On the Internet, you can find a lot of repair instructions, but it is better to entrust this matter to a professional than to pay three times more for a complex complex repair.
There are many reasons why the air conditioner does not turn on from the remote control. Some breakdowns can be diagnosed independently, but often we recommend using the help of a wizard from the service department. He has enough experience to perform a complete diagnosis of the air conditioning system and fix the problems. Good luck!
