If you want your Midea aircon function for a long time, you should occasionally check and take good care of it before the general servicing time.


At the very least, ensure the air filter is clean. A dirty air filter can reduce the cooling efficiency of your Midea unit and be bad for your health. Midea suggests homeowners clean the filter once every two weeks.


Here are some things to remember if you want to clean air filters on your own:

  • Always read the User or Owner’s Manual of your Midea aircon first; different series may require a different approach
  • Always turn off your aircon and unplug it from the power socket before cleaning or maintenance
  • Use a soft and dry cloth to wipe the unit clean after cleaning
  • Use a cloth soaked in warm water to wipe an extremely dirty surface of your indoor unit


Next, these are the tips on how to clean the air filter of your Midea aircon:

  1. Lift the front panel of your indoor unit
  2. Detach the air filter(s) from your indoor unit by gripping the tab on the end of the filter, lightly pushing it up, then pulling it a little towards yourself
  3. Clean the filter with warm, soapy water—only use a mild soap or detergent
  4. Use running water to rinse the filter, then shake off excess water
  5. Dry the filter for 15 to 30 minutes in a cool and dry place; refrain from exposing it to direct sunlight as it can shrink the filter
  6. Attach the air filter again after you dry it
  7. Close the front panel of your unit


Keep in mind the above steps are just a general guideline. Please refer to the user’s manual of your aircon for more detailed cleaning steps.


How often should you service your Midea aircon?


While it doubles up as a great addition to your home, you are also required to perform regular air conditioning service in Singapore to keep it running smoothly for years to come.


As a general rule of thumb, manufacturers often suggest owners service their aircon at least once a year. In the case of Midea aircon, it is best to service it every three months and chemical wash once a year.


The scope of work for general aircon servicing usually includes:

  • Pre-service inspections: controller settings, airflow, electrical point check, etc
  • Indoor unit cleaning and service: washing, vacuuming, and cleaning of filters, front panel, indoor evaporator coil, check of fan bearing etc
  • Condenser service: check of refrigerant level and visual inspection
  • Report findings and recommendations


For your safety and convenience, manufacturers always recommend aircon service to be performed by licensed technicians. Do not attempt to service it without sufficient knowledge and experience.


Also, you are probably thinking about why should you service it.


Every year, we see so many households need to spend a hefty repair cost since their aircon is not serviced regularly, as suggested by Midea. That is why it is better to follow the manufacturer’s advice and service it at least once a year to protect your Midea aircon from causing a leak.
