How to Determine If Your Ductless Mini-Split Needs Repairs
In many cases, it will be evident that there is a problem with your ductless system simply by how it operates. If it displays any of these symptoms, you may need professional repairs:
- Poor cooling performance
- System will not turn on
- Strange noises, like screeching near the compressor unit
- Hissing noises or a visible refrigerant leak
- A smell of melted or burning plastic, indicating electrical problems
If you notice any of these symptoms, and changing the air filter or resetting the breakers does not help, contact our team at R.S. Andrews for assistance. We can quickly diagnose and repair most mini-split problems, and our work is backed by a satisfaction guarantee.

Common Ductless Mini-Split Problems
When a ductless mini-split malfunctions, it is usually due to one of several common problems, such as:
- Power Loss: A safety circuit may have tripped or the breakers may have been thrown. Try resetting the breakers, and call a professional if the problem remains.
- Clogged Air Filter: A clogged air filter can reduce cooling performance. These should be replaced when they become dirty.
- Clogged Condensate Drain: This drain allows moisture removed from the indoor air to drain away, and it can become clogged with dust or algae, creating a leak. To clean it yourself, try flushing it with water or vinegar, or using a small wire to dislodge clogs.
- Dirty Evaporator Coil: Dust on the evaporator can reduce airflow and interfere in the cooling process. The cooling fins in the coil are delicate, and cleaning is often best left to a professional.
- Dirty Condenser Coil: Dirt or leaves trapped in the outdoor compressor unit can also cause poor cooing performance. You can remove large debris yourself, but more thorough cleaning should be done by a professional.
- System Fan Failure: A failed fan can prevent proper cooling, and will need to be professionally replaced.
- Failed Start Capacitor: This device provides extra power for the compressor to start, and it can fail prematurely, requiring replacement by a professional.
- Compressor Failure: A failed compressor will prevent the system from operating at all, and will need to be replaced professionally.
- Refrigerant Leak: Low refrigerant or a leak will reduce cooling performance, and must be corrected by a professional.
