Small breakdown, how?
If it seems that your air conditioning does not work anymore, make sure that the electrical board has not jumped thus blowing the fuse of your device. In this case, a replacement is necessary. If your air conditioner makes an abnormal noise, turn off your air conditioner for 10 minutes so that the engine can cool down in the meantime. Otherwise, check the condition of your filter, it may be dirty and may be responsible for the noise. Vacuum or filter under water (only if plastic).

Once the specialist is there, describe the problem at best and the conditions of the breakdown. The inspection is obligatory according to a decree, for your good and that of your wallet in case of significant failure. After two years, a first inspection should be done if the device is 100 kilowatts, otherwise three years.
