Making some maintenance in my house, I decided to fix the air conditioner in my living room, a Johnson MGE-30-BC, which has been non-working for a long time.
I bought my house two years ago, and the air conditioner wasn’t working by then. I have always been delaying that repair project because I was expecting the worst possible outcome (maybe the gas escaped and I would have to find the leak, fix it and refill the circuit? maybe the compressor was broken, and I would have to replace it (and also empty and refill the circuit too), maybe more than one thing is faulty and I would have to replace the whole machine?… You know, that kind of repairs, which are not cheap), but… it turned out to be the easiest repair in a long time: the multi-wire cable that connects the inside and outside units has wires of the same color, and two of those wires were connected wrong.
I don’t understand how that would happen… ¿the person who installed it didn’t try it? Maybe he/she thought it was faulty? Why didn’t he/she go to the store to retrieve his/her money? Was he/she just lazy? The only thing that I know is that I have a working aircon in the living room now 😂.
Now that it is working, and being the owner of another aircon in my bedroom which I can control with my phone, I thought the living could not be less, and started once again decoding the remote IR codes, as I did some months ago with my bedroom unit.
