It’s really a chip, but that’s our unit’s brain. We only use a/c during summer months while we’re sleeping. The rest of the year, it just sits idly by waiting to be fired up.
But it can’t wait any longer. About a month ago, our idle a/c unit began turning itself on and off. It comes on randomly and it also politely, but randomly, turns itself off. At first I thought the remote was to blame. But that wasn’t it.
The only thing I can think of is that our a/c unit has a bad brain.
Living in a small town in Mexico I haven’t found a service person yet who knows how to deal with this problem. So after weeks of trying various strategies, randomly of course, I did the only thing left. I turned off the electricity supplying its brain.
