In the summer, astounding temperatures can leave everyone feeling lethargic and stressed. This can be exasperated by any problem, but especially when it comes to your air con not working. If your Mitsubishi air con won’t turn on at all, it will be clear by the lack of display on the screen. Once you are sure that the unit is not turning on at all, there are a few things you can try to fix yourself. So, if the air con in your Mitsubishi is causing you problems, read on to find out why it might not be turning on and what you can do to fix the issue before the weather gets even hotter.
1. Electricity supply
It can be easy to overlook, but one of the most common causes of the air con not turning on is a larger issue with the electricity supply. If for any reason there is a problem with the supply of electricity in your home, then your air conditioning will not be able to turn on. The plus side to this is that it is very easy to work out if this is the issue. It is as simple as checking some of the other electrically powered items in your home, for example, the washing machine, microwave or fridge. If these also lack power supply, then you know that a problem with the electric supply is the reason behind your Mitsubishi air conditioning not turning on too. You may need to call an electrician if you find you can’t remedy this yourself.
2. Tripped circuit breaker
The fault could be due to a tripped circuit breaker. You can check this by heading to your meter box and ensuring that the circuit breaker for your Mitsubishi air conditioning is on. If it isn’t, you can simply switch it back to on. If the circuit breaker continuously trips then the problem is more nuanced and you will need to call help.
3. Isolating switch
You can also make sure the isolating switch for the air conditioning is on. You can most commonly find this on the wall, somewhere by the outdoor unit. You will also be able to tell if there is a problem with this such as it being either too loose or too difficult to move. In this case, it will need to be checked.
