  • Where is the Thermostat Switch for the aircon (generic)?

    Hi Mga Guru,

    Voxy's A/C is acting up sometimes - sabi nung nagestimate na specialist - papaltan lng daw ung thermostat switch.. naisip ko lng po - saan po ba nakalagay ung thermostat switch?

    Hanging type ung evaporator niya - like this:



    mahirap po ba tanggalin ung thermostat switch? kailangan pa ba mag release/refill ng freon pag pinapaltan to?

    Salamat po ng madami!

    The knob w/c says Temp or coldness, usually indicating a gradual increase in size of the blue strip or label as you turn it. At the back end of that knob you will find the whole switch mechanism. It nay look something like this...






    They're really not expensive, around 500 bucks a pop. Have it tested when you buy it. You don't have to refill freon if its just the switch you have to replace.

      maraming salamat sir willy! follow up question po - in case na maayos pa ung thermostat switch ko - ano pa kaya possible na sira bkit ayaw umikot nung compressor pag on ang A/C? okay naman po lahat ng fuse... pag nirekta ko naman sa 12v ung compressor umaandar siya at malamig naman ung A/C..

      maraming salamat po

          You need to trace the connection between the switch and the compressor if there are loose or faulty connections. I assume that your A/C model has basic wiring so the culprit is easy to find. As you mentioned the compressor runs normal when directed to the power source meaning the switching circuit may have issues. Sometimes the switch contact points carbonize after sometime and this cuts or diminishes continuity in the wire. I'm sure your aircon service specialist will be able to trace the problem after he has installed the new thermostat switch. This link may give you basic ideas on Auto A/C systems....

          You may also want to upgrade the quality of the A/C switch for a much higher amperage whenever you can (from larger A/C systems but same voltage). There are many surplus switches in Car electrical supplies around the Metro that you can get for a decent price.
