Question about LG Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Keeps spitting out water whilst in cooling cycle.

Purchased about 5/6 yrs ago and noticed the problem as always just after the warranty expired - tried to get it fixed but technician mentioned that this was a manufacturing defect with this particular model is this correct and the problem fixed. Could you advise me as to what my chances are of getting some sort of compensation from the dealer that we purchased it from. If they knew it was manufacturing problem they should not stock the item - we would have moved on and bought another model/brand.

Window A/C, correct? If you slide the air conditioner out of it's case. See if the drain on the unit pan is open. Also  make sure that the unit is tilted slightly down toward the outside of the house.  As far as a manufactuer defect. It think he was lieing to you for a service call or he didn't want to do the work I prescribed.

My Aircon indoor unit will not run continually on cooling. It runs for short bursts then stops.

One thing that I am not seeing in your description is that the coil sensor has been replaced. I find it strange that a phone tech could diagnose this, send out a technician and not replace this component. Was the service tech an authorized LG repairman? That is where I would start. I would call LG and ask them for a certified technician supported by LG in your area. I feel you will have better luck with that approach.

You need a tech. All 14 seer units have an X13 motor which speeds up and down on start up. A tech will adjust your tstat programing. Fan stays on after unit is done cooling to help drain water in cooling and cool off heat strips in heating,

Haier air conditioner just bought it a month ago.seems the water isnt draining fast enough out of it.i have it tilted pretty good but keeps spitting water out the front

The newer units do not have drain holes or they have them plugged and you need to knock them out...if there is a knockout it will be in one of the back corners outside...

The newer units are made to evaporate the water and so they do not drip...but in very humid conditions that does not always work effectively...

You can also drill a hole in the pan in the outside back corner, but BE CAREFUL to NOT drill into the condenser coil!!!

I have had many calls to repair coils for this reason!!!

Sounds like you may have an air bubble in the drain system. Try adding a little tap water to the pump system to help force the air bubble out. Sort of like priming the pump.

Also, you wouldn't send it back to anyone here on Fixya for Warranty repair. You'd have to send it back to the manufacturer. But, before you do, try talking with someone in the manufacturer's Technical Service Dept. They can probably help you over the phone. Thus, saving time and money.

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

RUUD AC cycles warm & cold 24/7

Hello Anna Sounds like the compressor is overheating and stoping on overload internally.Then it cools down restarts and runs into overload again.I would like to see the freon pressures when running.Could have a clog/restriction in piping.I dont like that you went thru a compressor already, the original installition is suspect.The original (1st) failure cause must be corrected.Check the TXV valve replace, filter/dryer look for a kinked pipe are ideas for overheating.Make sure condenser coil is free (ari flow)& clean also.

(Tilted) Plasmaire spits water into room....

What your problem is is that water coming back into your face is condesation. Appearently there is a clog preventing your condensation water from draining out the back side of the a/c You can remove the a/c from it's sleeve, take it outside and with a pump sprayer (Type used for spraying insecticide) filled with water spray around the base of the a/c where the condensor coil sits (you should see a small drain channel in this area) If this drain channel is clogged water will back up and the squirrel cage will pick it up throwing it out into the house.. Good Luck on your repairs

Sears Plasmaire spits water into room

It's probably just holding water somewhere and getting thrown out. I've seen people drill holes on the bottoms to drain water quicker.
