I had a split unit installed at my holiday home in Lago Jardin, about 10 years ago !
The manual says the unit is a Team SP12000 R407C (the labels on the units are faded).
In recent years we don’t come out so much (about once a year) and the unit has become problematic.
As my wife & I are close to retirement, we plan to come out more often and probably will replace the unit. However we are about to undertake some significant construction works so want to wait until these are finished due to dust etc.
The indoor unit is running and the fan on the condenser unit also operates, but the compressor does not. I think it attempts to start as I can hear a slight humming noise periodically.
My question is….could this possibly be the capacitor that is faulty, if so, is it worth just changing it to see if the unit will operate, and are the capacitors available? I am happy to attempt to change it myself, (if I knew where it was located) any ideas ???
If this is not practical I will contact one of the recommendations in the other A/C posts.
Thanks in advance.
