Hi, Is the condenser fan running? If not, Check the circuit breaker inside the house and the quick disconnect at the condensing unit. Making sure the power is off, check for any bugs in the contactor. If it is running, check to see if there are any resets on a high pressure switch or control board in the condenser. Check the compressor capacitors and see if they are leaking oil or swelled up. are there any burned wires? Is the compressor hot? If the fan is running and the compressor is not hot it is probably off on Low Pressure and needs charged by a licensed Air Cond Tech. Hope I have helped. Let me know. kstfas

I have a LG air conditioner which seems stuck on defrost. It works fine in cooling but when on heat the defrost light comes.

Possibly a stuck or closed defrost sensor. The sensor gets to freezing which closes the switch. So the unit goes into defrost cycle which switches the flow of the freon on a Heatpump. The hot gas thaws the coil and the sensor. Which opens the switch and switches it back. I'm giving this answer without knowing more about the unit. Defrost light comes on & it doesn't run at all? LG system is a split unit or window unit or what?

the temp seems to be fine. 80degrees celsius or less in stop and go traffic is normal,especially since the cooling fans are working and coming on at the proper time. the what seems to be running rough is another problem that doesn't seem to related to the cooling system temp. may want to check the spark plugs for worn electrodes.

I have a Select Comfort 2000 thermostat. I just replaced new batteries couple days ago. The past week my heat will be working fine all day and/or night then suddenly it will not kick in and the aux light...

Sounds like you have a heatpump. Is that correct? When it gets under 35F or so the heatpump just isn't able to keep up with the heat demand and will require help from a backup source such as electric strip heaters. The way the thermostat works is that the heatpump will work until room temperature gets 2F to 4F below what you have the thermostat set for, the Auxillary heat will kick in to help out. I think I am answering your question, please let me know if I have misread your problem and I'll try to come up with something else.

Defrost problem

No there is nothing to reset. It could be one of three things. Let the unit defrost completley. Take the same back pannel off. Check to see if your heater at the bottom is discolored or if you can see thats its broken inside. The next thing it could be is the limith switch which is located on the top of the evaperator. If both those seem fine you can go to the back of the unit and check the main control board. Most of the time its the heater though.

Good Luck

I recently bought a 4 ton 14.5 SEER Rudd Spilt system using R-410 and matching Rudd furnace. This system replaced a Lennox 10 SEER 4 ton unit. Now that it has gotten hot in Baton Rouge LA 90-93 degrees....

Sounds like the Unit might be low on charge.But without correct readings not sure.
The new unit with 410 will actually cool better due to higher boiling point temp. of freon type.Poor air circulation could also cause problem.Such as dirty filter, too slow fan speed,dirty coil.Also could have obstruction in freon lines either at pump,in line set,or in coil.
Get someone u trust to check it out and ask for their Rudd Dealership Training Credentials.

Samsung window air conditioner model aw05ncm7 icing up not cooling

After I opened the front of the unit and discovered it full of ice, I left the unit off until it defrosted, so to speak, after the ice had melted, I turned the unit back on to see what happened. It is working fine now, I'm not sure why it iced up, if this is normal or not, but after it melted the problem was solved.
