Question about LG Electronic Window Air Conditioner

LG window AC turns on and off by itself

We have a LG window unit, about a week ago it started coming on and turning off. We only use it at night, and it just goes off then comes back on. Sometime it may be off for a few minutes and come back on, or goes on and off, on and off. We have tried unpluging it, thinking that may reset something and hitting the breaker button on the cord. Nothing has helped. I go in the room during the day and it will be running. What could be the problem? thanks for your help.

We have had a similar problm and it has ended up being the energy saving light bulbs in the house, when we turn on the light switch on the energy saving bulbs they can send out a similar frequency turning on the ac unit, if you do not have the light bulbs its more than likely a fault in the pc or you have programmed the on/off timer to start the ac? hope this helps

My LG portable AC Model #LP1111WXR wouldn't turn off had to unplug it. Now won't turn on.


Unplugging the unit lets the tiny computer like microprocessor reset--means problem is in the brain of the unit or its power circuit.

More than likely this unit could be fixed reasonably. It sounds from your explanation like a bad connection inside the control panel of your unit. Could possibly be what is called a cold soldered joint.
