Aircon Thermistor Repairs

 

Aircon thermistor is a type of temperature sensor that you can find in aircon systems. They detect temperature fluctuations and send a resistance signal to the aircon control module.This is one of the more common type of Aircon repair in Singapore. If the thermistor is defective or corroded, it will not provide the proper signal for the control board to turn the compressor circuit on. This will cause the aircon to blow cold air for a while before the aircon power lights start blinking and blows warm air out. The aircon thermistor repair price in Singapore is usually between $70 to $200 .
