Question about LG LB8000ER Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Troubleshooting My window unit is 3 years old. It is spitting water out of the vents and sounds like it is shaving ice. Could my coils be freezing up, and what do I need to do to resolve this problem? I have turned it off for over 8 hours, but after it runs for less than one hour it starts up spitting water and making noise again.

Re: troubleshooting

First I would check your air conditioner to see if it is tilted backwards it should drain to the back (outside) . also check to see if the evaporator tray is clear of debris. if it is pluged up water may back up.. let me know and if this don't help we can go deeper..Thanks

Have haier HWRO5XCM air conditioner. Outside temp is 75 degrees and I have set on 76. Freezes up and spits ices and water. Help

Clean indoor filter , and coils in unit (you must remove from window and remove top from unit to expose coil, After cleaning coils prop up unit so it slopes to rear and spray back and forth at bottom of front coil until drain is clear . Never turn unit upside down , and do not get water inside of fan motor . Also clean evaporator blower wheel . With unit clean and drained out place in direct sunlight for at least 2 hours to completely dry before replacing top and reinstalling in window , or just drain out , reinstall and leave unit unplugged for at least 24 hours to dry before testing . If unit is clean and still icing , check to see if thermostat works (place object in front of unit to direct cold air from top of unit onto thermostat temperature sensor and compressor should cycle off, if not replace thermostat . If unit still ices you will need a pro to repair sealed system of unit or simply buy a new one .

My LG Air Conditioner started having problems this weekend. It is ony 3 years old and it keeps freezing and blowing out hot air

Since you don't give a model number, I will have to assume that it is a window unit, if not this probably won't apply. When a unit freezes up - as in ice on the evaporator fins it is usually either a low freon condition or the fan is not moving air accross the unit.

With the supper high temps that we are experiencing, many units that are undersized for the area that it is trying to cool are having serious problems. One client called us out to respond to a similar problem, so we charged the unit to factory specs. A few days later she called and said that the unit wasn't cooling properly, so we went back out. Since it was a window unit that was in the bedroom, it was a small unit. She was leaving her bedroom door open with fans to draw the cold air out to the rest of the house, which the unit was not sized to do.

Throws or sprays lots of water out the front on a daily basis which is soaking the carpet and furniture. The window unit is over ten years old and has been running non-stop for at least 5 years.

It sounds like that unit is getting a bit low on charge and is freezing up a bit....maybe even needs a good cleaning of the indoor coil... that would make it freeze also.

My unit is 3 years old. We have recently heard

sounds like the evap coil is freezing. it is frozen if you have low air flow. check the lines and see if your suction line is freezing. also check your filter. if you think your drain line is clogged cut the line and blow out with an air compressor or nitrogen. all you should need to fix the line would be a 3/4 in coupling or a union. hope this helps

Ice on the hose and not very cold

It does sound like it is losing charge. Unfortunately, most window units don't have charge ports. And the price you pay to have a guy put a port in and charge it would be more than the cost of a new unit

have you brought it down for a general cleaning on the 3 year period? if not then that's what it needs now.

the coil is freezing up because of dirt accumulation on the coil. even there is a filter, still with in 3 years it could have accumulated to decrease the airflow thru the coil and freeze it up.

tnx 4 using fixya,
