Re: compressor shutsoff

Does it only shut off at 110F or will it work ok under that temp?

Portable A/C: Compressor runs intermittently and doesn't cool room

Your issue sounds like either a bad "pressure switch" or that the unit is low on "Freon." Either of these problems will cause the compressor to start and run shortly then compressor cuts off, then and repeats itself.

From your description It really does Not seem to be a "bad board in that unit" because the compressor is starting up, even though the compressor is not staying on long enough to cool said area.

Just moved and installed my LG airconditioner. it does not cool, but warms.

Check it's in cool mode and temp setting is 3 degree less than room temp Check compressor is working with required pressure.60 PSI@ 98 degree Fahrenheit of ambient temp.If less pressure or no pressure, gas leak. Arrest leak and recharge gas.

Yes it could be the capacitor. Check it with a multimeter. If the capacitor looks swollen then its probably bad. Let me know if you need more assistance.

My lg wall unit (LWHD1009R) 10,000 btu the compressor keeps turning off after it gets going. even though I have it on a low temp. the comressor turns off after 5-10 minutes even though the room is not cold

either going off on low charge which would cause it to ice up, which means you need refrigerant. or high head pressure might just have to clean the coils or check condensor fan.

Do you know the quietest window air conditioner for under $250?

Most people buy the largest one they can find. It comes on, cools the room quickly and then shuts off. This is exactly what you don't want to happen because it does nothing to solve the humidification problem that is usually more of a problem than the temperature. Buy a smaller air condition that will come on and remain on for an extended period. It will remove the moisture from the room and make the air more comfortable. It will also draw less power and typically operate quieter since the compressor and fans are smaller. Of course it all depends on where you live... if you are in the desert, then humidity probably isn't the issue....

AC does not cool to the temp as desired

Does the thermostat have a mercury bulb in it, if it does you need to level the thermostat.
When you take the cover off, on the sub base there should be a couple of marks or grooves
One on each side of thermostat, you need to take a level and loosen the screws on the sub base
And with the level completely level align those two marks with the level.
If you don’t have a mercury bulb, then your thermostat may need the heat anticipator adjusted, some you can adjust the bi-metal coil, but I haven’t done that, so I couldn‘t tell you how to do it, or you just have a bad thermostat.

Fabricate or not?

OK, can you provide a bit more info. What make and model is your HVAC...if you can give me the serial that would help too. What size tents are you using and what is the average ambient temp during the day?

Lg split indoor fan runs non stop

Hello Hamid,
The unit is designed to run the indoor fanmotors continuously when in cooling mode on both indoor units (evaporators). The reason is that this circulates the air and the temperature thermistor or sensor is able to sense return air temperature and in turn start or stop the outdoor unit and compressor as required according to the setpoint temperature. The reason for either unit not reaching setpoint temperature can be a couple of reasons. A) Incorrect design - the unit may be too small for the application. You can calculate this roughly at 650BTU per square meter of room in a relatively warm ambient climate. Or secondly B) The outdoor unit has leaked and is short of refrigerant. You can check this when the outdoor unit is running by feeling the thicker copper tube on the right hand side of the unit. This should be cool to cold. If no temperature difference is felt, it is short of refrigerant. Hope this helps you. Goodbye
