Why does the air conditioner stop during use?

 

Symptom Symptom

           

           My air conditioner stops during use, or it cannot be turned on.

 

Cause Cause
  

             1. When a number of  appliances are plugged into a multi-outlet strip, the product may stop or turn off during use due to overload
                 as the circuit breaker trips to protect the circuit.

             2. Make sure you use the multi-outlet strip with rating of 250V and 15A or higher.
                 Do not plug in with a microwave oven, iron, or hair dryer that consume a high amount of electricity.

              3. Make sure to have a qualified electrician ground the house electric wiring to prevent fires and electricity leakages.

               ※  Please avoid using a multi-outlet strip.
