Check each screw on your compressor to ground (compressor case). Should be very high resistance Then check the resistance across your teminals on the compressor to be sure it is not shorted. Then check the wiring to your capacitor (The big one). I ran across this just last week. The mechanic didnt have the capicator wired correctly. If it is brand new it will have a wiring schematic somewhere on it.
Dont leave the compressor on very long, but turn it on long enough to get a voltage reading across the terminals. I assume it should be 240 volts. If you have check all of this, they make a jump start gadget to start a stuck compressor. They sell it just about everywhere. Let me know how this comes out..

First check your circuit breaker or fuse that supplies power to the outside unit. It's probably separate from the inside unit. Then try to turn unit on. If the fan and compressor just make a humming sound then turn it off and check the capacitor if you have a multimeter. You can also look at it and see if the top looks expanded. That's a good sign its bad, but not all bad one's look expanded. Tomorrow I will have access to an LG service manual and can let you know what the code means. Sorry I can't get it sooner. Let me know what you find.
