Re: The fan in the outside part of my AC doesn't run

If it is the compressor at fault it will be at the discretion of the manufacturer as to what they replace. I would suggest you contact an aircon engineer who can help you diagnose the problem because a professional will have to be in touch with the manufacturer. As you are getting in touch with the contractor who supplied the equipment that will be the correct route to go. Hope this helps.

Re: The fan in the outside part of my AC doesn't run

On most air cons there is a time delay before the outside unit starts and LG are no exception. This function means that erratic power supplies wont kill the compressor (outside bit). If the internal fan runs for a few minutes and then the trip goes then it sounds like you have a faulty compressor. This tends to be a scenario for a failed compresssor. What you can try is putting the unit on FAN ONLY (no cooling) and see if the power stays on. If you are more technically competent you could isolate the power to the compressor on the external unit (AFTER ISOLATING THE POWER TO THE WHOLE SYSTEM). And then try putting it on cooling to see if the external fan works. If the trip is not thrown then you have a faulty compressor. I would also like to point out that most A/C manufacturers offer a three year parts warranty so you may have some sort of cover depending on the age of your unit. In which case get an aircon guy out who knows what they are doing (personal reccomendation is always a good starting point). Hope this helps.

No heat but fan keeps running

If the air conditioner compressor runs all the time the main control board might be defective. The main control board provides the voltage to the fan motor and compressor. These boards are often misdiagnosed. Check all other components to be certain this is the cause of the problem.

Sounds like the contactor in the condensing unit is stuck. That is why it will not turn off when the thermostat is satisfied. If the inside air handler is not blowing and the outside condensing unit is running, then this will cause the inside coils to freeze up rather quickly.
The contactor is located in the outside condensing uni in the electrical compartment.
If it is sticking it will need to be replaced.

Ac fan on, blowing air, but not cold

Check outside unit if unit and compressor are running feel the large line to see if it is cold. If compressor is running and line is not cold possible charge problems. You may have a capacitor problem outside. they go out quite often. You can change this yourself, Open up outside unit and the cap is the silver bullet with terminals out the top. Bad cap can cause compressor to not operate and also the fan. You need to clean the coil inside or at leat check the coil to see if it is clean. You can clean theis with a toilet brush do not go against the coil bit brush with the fins. You may need to call a service tech but try these options first. russ

If the inside fan motor is running OK you are low on refrigerant. If the inside fan motor is not running, repair the inside fan motor. Could also possibly be dirty inside coils.

A/C quit running

This question is really to broad to answer. There are several things that could cause it to stop running. I think I would turn everything off, let it cool down for several hours and try it again. When you kick it back on, take note of what is running and what's not running. Inside fan, outside fan, compressor. If the outside unit will not run at all it could be as simple as a grasshopper caught in the contacts. If you hear the compressor running outside but no outside fan, The fan motor probably needs replaced. Please make sure that all power to the unit is TURNED OFF before removing cover plates on outside unit and before trying to remove insects from contact points. Check all wiring inside outside unit while it is open. Also check capacitors for swelling or leaking. If you don't know how to turn all the power off or open the outside unit, you need to call a professional AC technician. Hope this helps. kstfas
