SOURCE: My LG Lan125HV works fine on air conditioning (

I talked to LG customer support (800) 243-0000. The tech told me that this model had a problem with the indoor thermistor. It doesn't fail with an open-circuit condition, so you don't get an error code. The thermister just goes out of range and believes your indoor temp is much hotter than it is. That's why the heating never comes on. I'll bet that, even though it ran in COOLING mode, once your room reached setpoint, it just kept on cooling & cooling ... because the thermistor was still giving a false, high temp reading.

So, I bought a new thermistor, P/N 6323A20042A. My unit worked fine. Until the next week when I turned heating back on and now I have the same problem ... gives cooling but no heat. Something is failing the indoor thermistor OR the distributor sent me an old-style thermistor, I haven't gotten determination on that yet.

Regardless, call LG and see if they can't direct you to a distributor for an indoor sensor. LG's warranty coverage for parts is a royal pain, unless you can show a receipt by a certified installer, you're not going to have much luck getting payment for the part. However, the thermistor is only $10. Just hope you get one that doesn't fail on you!

I have a sears kenmore air Conditioner about 10 years old. Not sure the model number. It stopped blowing cold air a few days ago and in cleaning the filter the hold down elastic string got caught under...


What came loose was the heat sensor bulb, it is snapped into a retainer clip and connected to the unit be a very small copper tube.
This is not the cause. Most likely cause is low freon, bad compressor or the capacitor

Kenmore Air Conditioners: Brand Reputation and Who Makes 'em?


According to the Sears archives, there never was an actual Kenmore, at least not a manufacturer by that name1. So how to explain the fact that one in five U.S. households owns an appliance with that brand name prominently displayed?
It goes back to 1927, when Sears first established the Kenmore brand for a washing machine. The idea caught on, and Sears ended up using the brand across the board (as recently as 1977 bringing out the Kenmore version of a refrigerator - made by Frigidaire, which is owned by Electrolux2). In an interesting flip-flop, the core brands of Sears: Craftsman, Kenmore and DieHard, first gained their reputations because they were sold by Sears; then, when Sears itself suffered a loss of market share, the brand names were separated out as having a value all their own.

In 2007, Sears "sold" their three killer brands to a shell company and then licensed the names back to Sears3. The point? Two, really. The first was to protect these valuable brands should Sears go bankrupt. The second was to generate revenue from the intellectual property. This is why Kenmore is sold at, for instance, K-Mart, even though the product name used to be reserved for Sears alone.
So who makes Kenmore AC?

Because the name is licensed by Sears, there are no set restrictions on who could make the products. Sears is free to purchase from whomever they like. According to Consumer Reports, the manufacturing arrangements change all the time4. Currently, Kenmore air conditioners are made by at least three different manufacturers for Sears: Whirlpool (Fedders), Electrolux (Frigidaire), Keeprite, LG and Friedrich.

The only way to actually tell is to look at the model number and decode it. Information on how to do so can be found here5.

Why does it matter? It matters because Kenmore air conditioners come at a premium. The brand name is leveraged, along with Sears reputation, into something consumers value as a better product. It also matters because one item under the Kenmore brand may be excellent, while another item (made by a different manufacturer) may have problems.

Savvy consumers will examine a Kenmore model number, determine the real manufacturer, and then investigate buying the item directly - sometimes at a substantial savings.
Products

The window air conditioners (sold at Sears and K-Mart) range in price from $100 to $600 dollars and have a good reputation. Most of these (at this writing!) are made by LG, a South Korean manufacturing group6 (the LG stands for "Lucky Goldstar"). They have a good reputation, but this may be one case where buying an extended warranty is advised. At this price range, consumers who seek a warranty fix are likely to get a new machine rather than just a repair. In either case, if a store-based warranty is offered, this should be considered (rather than a manufacturer's warranty).

For a single room, window installation, the Kenmore brands are not all energy star rated, but this is to be expected at the lower prices. The major complaint is shared among similar discount window units - noise. Proper installation will help avoid this problem.

All of the Kenmore air conditioners are window installations; however, they can be adapted to a through-wall configuration. Sizes range from their lowest priced ($100) unit, the 5,000 BTU model. This is rated to cool a 10 ft by 10ft space. At the opposite end of the spectrum is the 25,000 BTU, single room air conditioner, at about $600.
Kenmore Central AC

As mentioned above, the name Kenmore has a value. Consumers recognize it and generally think well of it. For this reason, Sears extended the use to a line of professionally installed central air conditioners. They also market under the Carrier nameplate.

These units come in standard sizes and use existing ductwork, either for cooling or heating. They are installed and serviced by technicians under contract with Sears. Reading some of the customer comments, this seems to be the main source of aggravation7. While consumers appreciate the 10-year warranty offered by Sears (in addition to manufacturer's warranty) they find getting good service a problem.

The reason for the failure in the repair and maintenance department seems to be a reflection on who Sears contracts with to do their installs and repairs. Because Sears doesn't have an in-house repair operation (they aren't a manufacturer and the volume doesn't justify it) they contract out to local businesses. This makes it essential for anyone purchasing a Kenmore central air system to not only evaluate the product, but look into whatever company will be installing and servicing the unit. It isn't possible to blame Sears across the whole nation for complaints due to local service technicians.

The best advice, gathered from the professional HVAC forums, is to choose your installer with as much (or more) care than the system installed. This is especially so because Sears is actually a middleman between several manufacturers and the consumer. Only an experienced HVAC technician will be able to see past the nameplate to the value underneath.

I have a digital Total Line thermostat that has a blue, white, yellow, red and green wire. Where do I attach these wires to the Model 44300A unit?


Normally Red to R (24v coming to stat) White to W (Heat) Green to G (Blower)
Yellow to Y (Air conditioning) Blue to C (common)
This is assuming you have gas heat and central air conditioning. If you have a heat pump blue would be for that. If you have a volt meter, check voltage between red and blue with furnace turned on. It will be 24 volts approx. if blue is common.

Are you getting 120 vac or 220 vac at the unit? Check the voltage at the first terminals inside the unit as well as the breaker. You should have 220 vac at the elements and you are dropping a leg some where.

Working with 220 v


If you are looking for a "window" type of unit yes there are some 220 volt units on the market. Most are large like 18,000 btu or larger. Check Lowes, Home Depot or larger appliance retailers for availability. Also know when buying if you need a heat strip, or heat pump if indeed you want heat.
