There were also reports of thousands of blackouts, and as a result of this, (once your power comes back) your air conditioning unit may not be functioning properly. Follow theses steps to help your system return to normal operation…
- Reset your unit by turning off the circuit breaker at the power box
- leave it off for around 15-45 mins
Note: Turning off the power from the power box can clear the memory of the air conditioning functions as it was doing beforehand.
- Turn it back on after an hour.
- Turn the unit back on from the master controller and see how the system runs.
- Check for error codes
If your system has error codes and still won’t operate, call us on 1300 885 247 to book in for a service, or possible repair.
