Common Remote Control Problems

One of the main problems that people are involved with is that they squeeze the remote buttons to find out that there’s no change, and they’ll immediately get the idea that their remote is in trouble. But you need to know that in most cases, the remote is in perfect health and this is a problem that you are involved in and you must think about solving the problem.

How to test the remote control

There are many ways to test the air conditioner remote control. But we only teach you two methods (easy and common methods).

The first method

A : If the remote control device works only at a very near distance, it may be due to a weak battery. (Naturally, it should be within 7 meters of the cooler)

The appropriate distance for remote control testing

Figure 4: The appropriate distance for remote control testing


In this case, replace the batteries when replacing them with two healthy batteries, and avoid using the new and old batteries at the same time.

B : Batteries will leak when battery pack is inappropriate or wet. If the batteries are leaking, replace them and use a new battery.

Note: When do not use remote control for a long time, remove the batteries and keep them separate.

The second method

A : First, if there is a radio near you, if you have to take control of the radio and press the buttons, the radio must be have Noise, which means that the control is healthy and if it does not happen, it should be in doubt.

B : The other interesting way is that light is due to the frequency of it being invisible to humans, considering that it controls the infrared transmitter, but this invisible light can easily be seen in low-frequency digital cameras.

Get started right now Take your camera or video mode to activate your mobile phone to be ready to shoot. Then tap the TV control over your phone’s camera and press one of the buttons. Do not be surprised, the control overflow is not clear, but the distance between you is the ability to display infrared on and off.

If your control lamp lights up, it indicates that your device is healthy and should start troubleshooting from another part, but if the light is off, or if your device does not have battery or a part of your control has been damaged. You need to buy a new controller from a reliable remote control air conditioner sales center.

So if you are sure of the safety of your control, the wiring of your receiving device is a problem and it’s imperative for a repair technician to visit it.

Of course, it’s not a bad thing to say that before you get in contact with the repairer, be careful not to cover the eyes of your receiver, which prevents the infrared waves from reaching it.

Lock control of the cooler

One of the options that controls the gas coolers in some models is the ability to lock the keys for easy cleaning or unwanted changes to the cooler settings, or if children use the controls.

Usually every brand and manufacturer of their own method will have such a lock if such a lock is installed, but gas coolers are generally equipped with this option.

The general controls do not have a particular shape or character, and even do not support some of these features, but the controls that are featured are either locked or unlocked or locked with this lock feature. To enable the child lock option, these controls allow you to keep the specified button for 3 to 5 seconds until the lock is locked. Now, to unlock the child, you need to keep the same button for 3 to 5 seconds until the child lock on the gas cooler is disabled.

Keep in mind that none of the control options will be active when the control is locked and the control must be removed from the lock if you need to use control even for low and high temperatures.

Some gas coolers also feature two combinations of buttons. It’s usually explained in the booklets of these coolers that the two buttons will combine to activate the child lock on the gas cooler. But in general, these types of controls are also unlocked with the lock icon on the button and with the button that the lock is open on it, or with the menu button, the Inter and a button other lock is activated.(1)
