Question about LG LW1200ER Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Ruud Problems I have a Ruud Acheiver 90, I'm having some problems, the rollout (burner) limit switches are opening, and there is an electrical burning smell. It seems that sometimes the squirrel cage isn't kicking on, but when I reset manual limits and give the squirrel cage a manual turn, the heater runs fine, sometimes. I guess what I'm asking is: would the fan motor only work sometimes, would the ignition plug give off an electrical burning smell (it's lighting fine), there is a separate thermocoupling, it seems to be fine..... Filter is new.... Just wondering if the squirrel cage's start/run capaciter would be the cause.... IFC seems to be operating fine... All other systems seem to be operating fine... It's almost like the fan motor is getting stuck, and when it doesn't kick on, the limit opens up... Please Help.....

    Thanks for the reply, the fact that the winding on the motor seems to be burning up has me scared. I removed the whole fan unit and am going to replace it today, caps and all..... Thanks again for the reply... You Rock!!! :)

Trouble shooting light blinks 6 times showing open roolout!how do i fix that problem!


The flame rollouts are located in the burner compartment and attached to the sides or top of the metal housing around the actual burners. They are small and round and have 2 wires hooked to them. They are there for safety to detect if the flame is rolling out of the heat exchanger, caused by other possible issues. However, sometimes they do go bad and have to be replaced. Also, your rollouts are ran in series with the limits and may also be that. The only way to track it down is to have a meter that measures continuity and after the unit stops working, see which device you lost current through. Bypassing these can be harmful and cause major problems so I do not recommend it. One thing you can try is to make sure all filters are clean and the air flow throughout the house is "normal". These can cause the unit to overheat and trip one of the limit switches that I mentioned earlier. I also do not recommend watching if the flame is coming out of the heat exchanger causing a rollout to trip, but if it is, you could have a blocked flue pipe or other issues. I hope this helps or at least points you in the right direction. Good luck and happy holidays!

Hello, sounds Like the Furnace is tuning off due to the limit switch or rollout switch opening. A limit switch and rollout switch are safety swtiches that will turn off the furnace if it gets to hot or the burners flames are abnormal. Usually a weak blower motor, dirty blower wheel , dirty burners or even a crack in the heat exchanger can cause this problem. Best bet is to call a hvac technician and have them check it out.

Where is the reset button on my ruud acheiver 90 airconditioner?


Should be a small button on the outside unit close to where the tubing is welded on the unit. This is a high pressure switch that trips if the unit gets hot , so be sure and check the coil for dirt , etc. The fan pulls air through the coil. If the outside of the coil is dirty it will trip the high pressure switch. Look under the fins, you will see the outside of the coil.

If you didn't reset the rollout switch, the air will not work. The rollout switches are in the furnace burner secton. Look at the burners, the rollout switch(es) are just above the burner. They will have a button on top to push for reset. These rollout switches will generally have two wires going to them.

Coleman home heater stops working fault code "limit switch open"


How do you test a pressure switch and other limit controls?
This is for people who are experienced with electrical equipment and the use of a Volt Ohm meter. *Please never by pass a pressure switch or limit control. The pressure switch and limit switches are there for your safety. You would test by setting your volt meter to "Volts AC" and test the rollout switch by placing one meter probe on one terminal of the rollout switch and your other meter probe to a good ground. Have the red probe touching the top terminal of the rollout switch and the black probe touching a ground (body) of the furnace. You should be getting 25.85 volts which means the rollout is good on the top terminal. I would next test the bottom terminal of the rollout by touching the red meter probe to the bottom terminal on the rollout switch and the black terminal to ground. If I get 25.85 volts on the bottom terminal the rollout is good. If I do not get any voltage on the bottom terminal then the rollout has tripped and can be reset (if equipped) by pressing in on the little button or replaced. If your rollout switch is tripped you probably have a stopped up heat exchanger or a leaking heat exchanger. I would recommend calling in a service technician to find out why the rollout switch tripped. If you have an open limit control either the furnace has over heated or the limit has gone bad. Problems that would make a limit open up would be dirty filters, dirty evaporator coil causing a restriction in the air flow or a slow blower motor (check the capacitor on the blower motor to make sure it is good). A weak blower motor capacitor will cause the blower to run slow and eventually fail. Pressure switches, and limit switches can be tested with a meter in the same manner. With the furnace calling for heat you can test each of the terminals on the pressure switch to ground to make sure the pressure switch is closed. You should be getting between 24 to 28 volts from each terminal to ground if the pressure switch is closed. If the pressure switch is open you either have a stopped up vent, drain line (if you have a condensing furnace) or bad pressure switch.

My Blower runs 24/7 and the burner is not kicking on.... Is this a high limit switch issue?


It might be the high limit, but it could also be the roll out switch or the flame sensor. Start by ohming out the simple switches the high limit the rollout if the are good use a piece of light grit sand paper or some emery and clean the flame sensor. This is a rod that sits in the flame of the burner telling the gas valve the burners are lite and it is okay to keep the valve open.

LP Ruud furnace achiever 90+. Strange problem.


Sounds like two problems. Not enough combustion air or a defective high temperature limit switch. You enclosure may not be getting enough outside air to properly sustain combustion. If the unit has a rollout thermostat it may be defective and stopping everything.

Thanks for your question,
yup your fan motor is bad, if you need to manually start it each time then the motor winding are bad and it is not getting the air across the coils, which in turn are over heating, thus causing a burning smell, and then tripping your limits, you need to replace this motor ASAP, before it does cause a fire, if the limits ever fail !! I hope this was helpful for ya, if it was please give this a rating, thanks again,
