There can be problems with the compressor.

The system's compressor is outside in the same housing as the condenser and the fan. If something happens with the compressor, then the system will blow warm air because the compressor won't be pressurizing the refrigerant, which needs to happen in order for the air to be cooled.

There can be problems with the blower.

The blowers of ductless systems can experience problems with different parts. Whether the problem has to do with the fan in the blower, the coils, or another part, the result will be that the blower won't function how it should. Putting off repairs while continuing to try to run the system can make things much worse, which can lead to costlier and harder-to-repair issues.

There can be issues with the lines.

The ductless system will have a refrigerant line and a condensation line. Issues with either or even both of these lines are possible. Something to think about is that each of these lines tend to be quite long, and this means that the length offers more opportunities for there to be problems that can lead to a leak. Also, there is the risk that there can be a clog in one of them. Either type of problem will need to be taken care of as soon as the problem is found in order for the system to work correctly and without causing other issues.
