Bought a Fujitsu heat pump less than a year ago and during recent summer months put it on cool mode then the inside unit started dripping with water.
I phoned the company that I bought it from and they said it sounded like the coil had moisture on it hence the dripping.
Had a further look and found that there were a number of electrical wires near where the water had accumulated so I contacted Fujitsu head office NZ.
This is their response:
"Thanks for your email. Water/condensation can form on the coil of heat pumps when running in cooling mode, especially if the fan is being used in a very low speed. This is more prominent when the humidity level is high in the room. All units have a drip tray in them and should have a drain hose attached to the unit that will allow this water to run away safely. I would suggest running the unit in Auto or high fan speed while in cooling mode to help the air flow move the condensation away.
There are no issues with the mix of water and electrics as the electrics are well away from where any condensation would form. "
I've used other brands of heat pumps before on cooling mode and this is the first time I've had water dripping from a Fujitsu make.
This is the first and last time I have buy Fujitsu, don't make the same mistake I did.
