How do I fix my Lg split system air conditioner myself because it will not stay on any more?

probably not beyond help just beyond your capability to fix as it needs to be properly tested to find exactly what is the fault
the price of a new one is considerable but against a technician call charge where you will find exactly requires repairing and that will allow you to replace any faulty parts cheaply
failure to get advice first will be more costly in the long run as you will be throwing parts at it without success.

What does eroor E6 Mean

The E6-F2 error code indicates a problem with the touchpad or the electronic oven control. E6-F2 specifically means the cancel key drive line is open. You can't cancel this error code, but sometimes removing the power from the oven and reconnecting it will cure it.This is usually a fault in the touchpad, but can also be caused by the electronic oven control. To test the oven you would need to remove the control panel and disconnect the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the oven control at the oven control. Clean the end of the ribbon and reconnect it. This will sometimes correct the problem by curing a weak connection. If the error code comes back you should replace the control panel which contains the touchpad. 8300427- black

8300428- white

8300516- biscuit

The part number for the electronic oven control is 8302319.

The tank on the mastercool is beginning to rust out. Is there an available fiberglass insert for these tanks, or do we need to use mesh and mold it in place?

I have wondered this myself. The Mastercool has inherent weaknesses in the pan where the metal sides and bottom tray meet. Of course they are not manufactured with a fiberglass tray because they would last too long and therefore reduce profits for replacement coolers. I have found that the bottoms of the pans rarely rust because they are constantly under water, not exposed to the air, and also accumulate a buildup of minerals that actually protect the metal. It seems that water gets in the seams and along with the exposed metal at the waterline, rusts out primarily in the end corners. I know of no fiberglass insert but am currently working on three rusted units by using fiberglass cloth and resin and filling holes with good ol' regular automotive Bondo. I am particularly making sure that it is totally sealed so not water can get past the pan. It will take a year or two to find out if this works.

I have also considered cutting off the old pan and having a local HVAC shop fabricate a new one using stainless steel or aluminum. This might be a little costly but would save time compared to reworking the old one with fiberglass cloth. I have been successful in obtaining used metal including SS sheets from the salvage yard very economically. The cost would be in the simple fabrication of the tray and any welding required to make it watertight. I might try this down the line if the fiberglass retro doesn't work.

Water heater not heating water , single element 110v replaced still no hot water

How To Test High Temperature Cutoff Switch Located at the Upper Heating Element Before testing the electic water heater elements we should check out the high temperature cutoff switch since a problem there will simply turn off power to both heating elements.
On an electric water heater the upper heating element may have two, three, or four electrical terminals, and above the upper thermostat is a high temperature cutoff switch with four terminals. You should be able to identify these parts by looking at the water heater's wiring diagram found on the tank or inside the panel cover.
The electric water heater high-temperature cutoff swtich will turn off the entire water heater if temperatures are too high. If this cutoff is not working the water heater will simply not heat at all. You can use this switch to test to confirm that the incoming electrical power circuit is indeed bringing power to the water heater.
Turn off electrical power to the heater at the electrical panel: WARNING: possible fatal electrical shock
Set the multitester or VOM to its 250 VAC scale, and attach the tester probes or alligator clips to the two uppermost terminals on the control (L1 and L3 on the top left and top right in our photo below). These are normally the incoming electrical wires from the power circuit to the heater. "L" refers to "Line voltage" on most controls.
Test for line voltage: Now you can turn on electrical power to the heater. Your VOM should show voltage close to the voltage on the water heater's identification tag: typically this will be 208V or 240V for a 240V water heater, or it might be just 115V or 120V for a 120V water heater. If you do not see voltage close to the rated voltage you need to call an electrician to diagnose and repair the problem.
Turn off Electrical Power to the Water Heater again. Don't skip this step or you may be killed or you may ruin your test equipment.
Test the High Temperature Cutoff Switch itself: set the VOM to its Ohm or resistance scale using the most sensitive setting (R x 1). Touch one probe to the upper left terminal on the control (L1 in our photo at left). Touch the other probe to the lower left hand terminal on the control (T2 in our photo at left).
The ohm meter needle should move (or your digital multimeter DMM should show some number other than infinity). If no continuity and infinite resistance is what you read, try pressing the reset button on this control (the red "RESET" button in our photo at left).
If you cannot reset the control then this device is not working and it needs to be replaced.

Hi, My DImplex OFC2000 wont seem to work. The red light is on and I have the temperature setting up high to heat a cold room along with both of the power settings switched to I & II but it just...

I had the same, I think it's the auto cut-off.
Try this:

Cut the power first!

Then you can open the control-panel from the botton with 2 screws (while facing the control-panel, look as low as possible near the floor and you'll see those 2 screws facing you)

Then you can flip the control-panel open a little bit from the lower side. It's still connected with another screw somewehere at the upper side, but no need to open that one as well.

While opening this panel a bit, you'll see some 'thing' hanging inside, that 'tells' the heater if it's placed correctly or not (it prevents the heater from working when you hold the heater, for example, upside down, I don't know the correct word in English, sorry)

You can press this 'thing' in the upside direction and you'll here a click. That's it, maybe...this worked for me, so give it a try!

My product is a Holmes oil-filled heater. The model # is HOH2505. There are two round control knobs and both are broken. Can I get a replacement? Frankie Moore

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. I don't have the answer to your knob problem other than to contact a Holmes Service Center. However, this particular heater was the subject of a recall (see link below.) Maybe you can get lucky and get a whole new heater vs the knobs should you have a unit with a product code listed at the bottom of this post..

If you are in possession of a recalled model with a listed Production Code, contact us at (800) 306-2471 to confirm your eligibility and register for a replacement heater.

There is a 4 digit production code between 2 horizontal lines about 1/3 of the way down the product label.

These are the codes elligible for replacement:
Acceptable Production Codes 2305 0106 2405 0206 2505 0306 2605 0406 2705 0506 2805 0606 2905 0706 3005 0806 3105 0906 3205 1006 3305 1106 3405 1206 3505 1306 3605 1406 3705 1506 3805 1606 3905 1706 4005 1806 4105 1906 4205 2006 4305 2106 4405 2206 4505 2306 4605 2406 4705 2506 4805 2606 4905 2706 5005 2806 5105 2906 5205 3006

Our Whirpool Gas water heater is leaking from one of the top water supply lines and the pilot went out. we tried to light it back on and it does not. before we can replace the leak should we continue to...

first repair the leak then remove the burner assembaly at the end of the pilot tube you will find a small orfice were the gas comes out for the pilot remove that and be sure it is free from debri and not clogged replace it when the burner assembaly is back in place and reconnected try to light the pilot if it still wont light as you are trying to light the pilot tap the side of the gas control valve (somewhat hard) if it then lights you know you have a bad gas valve if you are getting gas through the pilot orfice (not air if you have recently disconected the gas supply) and it seems to be blowing to hard you will need to replace the pilot assembaly at the end of the orfice as the small sheild also helps make the gas air mixture

Does npt blow cold or heat.

Yes, in reality it would be more cost effective. Cost of a service tech, the valve and refrigerant. Camping world used to just charge 50.00 to install a new uit but you do have a new unit opposed to fix fix fix.Is the valve solenoid controlled? You may want to confirm power supply to solenoid first.
Good Luck , Ned-

Ductless heater shutting down

There is a small wiring harness that goes from the main board down to the sparker board at the very bottom of the heater. Disconnect this harness and reconnect making sure all pins and contacts make good connection. If it continues, replace the wire harness. Also make sure the outlet that the heater is plugged into is a grounded outlet. Stray voltage can interrupt the thinking of this unit.

If all connections are good and the unit is grounded, you are probably looking at replacing the sparker board. I do have these parts and would be more than happy to send them to you for a donation.
