Sir, this aircon's heating function isn't working well. Furthermore, as soon as you switch it on, there is a strange odor.

Your AC needs cleaning.
wǒ zài huànjì de shíhou zìjǐ qīngjié guò lǜwǎng de 。
When the season changed, I cleaned the filter mesh myself.
dāndān qīngjié lǜwǎng shì bùgòu de ，hěn duō huīchén jī zài sànrèpiàn shàng ，suǒyǐ sànrèpiàn yě yào qīngxǐ hé xiāodú 。
Merely cleaning the filter mesh isn't enough. A lot of dust can accumulate on the heat sink so the heat sink also needs to be cleaned and disinfected.
