You need to use a leak detector , the points that has potential to leak is in the joints , fittings, but you need also to check all portion of the pipes. including the cooling coil, and condenser coil.

Stuff frozen is usually where the leak is. It's under high pressure and when it leaks out the pressure drop causes the freeze.

Cost to fix is a guess depending on where it is. If the evaporator is what is leaking, you probably have to buy a new one and it'll be $1500-$2000. If an excessible line is leaking, it probably won't be all that much for them to solder it.

Good luck.

Make sure all of the pressure switches are closed on the low voltage control circuit on the outdoor unit. If any are stuck open, the compressor will not kick on. Or just push the compressor contactor in with an insulated screwdriver to ensure the compressor does actually work.

Generally, the fuses are located in a box outside by the outdoor unit. The box has a door on it and you will probably have to pull a cartridge out and the fuses will be behind the cartridge. If you don't have an ohm meter to check the fuses , just go to home depot, lowes or another hardware store where they can check them for you. Be sure to check the circuit breakers too.

There is a time delay on the stat to the AC unit, in addition the AC unit likely has one also, so immediate activation as desired isnt likely, however in 10 minutes of asking for AC if its not on still Id check the time delay fuses in the service disconnect at the AC unit, its a small grey box with the power cords running to and from it, there is 2 time delay fuses inside this box.

Take it back or call Sears. A 2 week old unit should not do that. I'll assume the settings are right like set on AC Auto or Max cool and not just fan. Are the coils icing or were they icing behind the filter? If not, I think it may need to be serviced.

I turned on my AC. The compressor sounded like it was straining and the fan wouldn't go on, then compressor went off. But the green powwer light was still on on the plug. I turned it off, unplugged it....


I am guessing it is a window or wall unit right? not central AC? If thats the case, how old is it? New? can u return it? if not, if its older than 4 or 5 years, trash it and get a new one! If the fan isnt working after a few seconds or minutes the compressor will over heat and shut off, its not worth repairing

LG AC compressor problem


Compressor may be locking up. Run capacitor may be weak or loose wire. Sounds like major voltage drop off as unit head pressure increases.

Four things cause icing up:
( 1 ) Is your filter clean? dirty filter blocks air flow causing iceing up. replace filter
( 2 ) Do you hear the Indoor fan running? If the fans not running the unit ices up. Check Capacitor to fan if good.
Bad fan motor... replace fan motor and cap. If both good
( 3 ) Check Air Handler evap coil if dirty and or clogged, restricts air flow causing unit to ice up. Use toilet brush to clean.
This is always a big possibility if you have pets.
( 4 ) If the above are not present then you are low on refrigerant.
Low refrigerant will cause icing up because the gas does not flash properly. This will require a service tech.
refrigerant leaks can be as simple as a loose cap on the king valve, leaking schrader core, to coil leak.
Have the service tech show you the leak. If it is in a copper line it can be fixed. If the system is over 10 years old limit the amount you want to spend. 10 years is the standard life expectantcy anymore. Good luck
