LSN181HSV. Why is it indicating code 61?

LG error code 61:
Condenser coil over 65°C. Check coil and filters are clean and free from debris, and airflow is OK. Check system pressures for non-condensables.
This would suggest it is not faulty thermistors but blocked heat exchanger in the outdoor unit. Or possibly an issue with the refrigerant level.

my ac unit comes on outside, but no air blows through my vents inside

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The first thing to check is the filter in the furnace or air handler. Also check the inside coil to be sure its not frozen up. Does the air coming out feel cold? It sounds like the unit could be low on charge which means it has a leak and should be leak checked repaired and properly charged. You would need refrigeration gauges to put on the system in order to properly check the refrigerant charge in the system. One other thing could be a dirty condenser coil. Turn the power off to the unit and use a garden hose with a strong nozzle and spray water through the whole coil to try and blow any dirt or debris through the condenser coil in the outside unit.

air is not blowing out with any force

if "not blowing out with any force" is refering to the outside unit .. then make sure the fan is turning and up to speed .. if not then make sure it turns freely without power .. if not then lube the bearings or replace the fan motor ... if it doesnt start at all but turns freely by hand then replace the starrting capacitor (about 3 inch metalic rounded rectangle with wires going into the compressor and fan) .. make sure the condenser coil is not clogged with leaves (wash out) ... if you are refering to the inside unit not havinng much force .. then replace the furnace air filter .. check to make sure the blower turns freely ... check the evaporator coil for blockage with dust ..

Air conditioner constantly running, not cooling house

Check and see if it is froze up. Check big line at outside unit for ice. check filter and replace as needed. Check outside fan to see if it is running. Wash out outside coil If fan and compressor are running and has hot small line at outside unit. If not froze up and coil is clean you will need to call in a pro. If compress over heated you may need to wait for it to restart if coil was dirty. Again make sure out door fan and or unit is running and clean.

cooling problems

Check the filters inside and the evap coil to make sure it isnt filthy. The evap coil can be cleaned with a credit card if its wet. The large line outside should sweat all the way to the compressor if its got enough freon. Will freeze when its cool outside or not sweat at all if its low. Good luck with it.
