Fuse plug in LG window a/c unit is shorted out. Where can I get a new fuse plug? This is the only window unit I have that has a fuse plug. Are these types of fuses (internal) part of most A/C units or is this an extra safety feature?

Replace with a standard plug. If this trips any circuit breaker you could have a compressor or capacitor problem.

My amana window unit blew a fuse in my fuse box I replace it now thw window unit won't come on


Candy, if the fuse blew in the first place, it was either overloaded or the AC unit has an electrical short in it. However, it may not come on now, without turning the Master Switch on the AC unit OFF and unplugging it from the outlet. Wait 10 minutes before plugging it back in. Then turn the unit ON. If it functions properly then the problem is solved. If not, the circuit board in the unit has been fried and will have to be replaced. Also, be sure that only the AC is plugged in to this receptacle. More than one will overload the fuse/circuit.

Hope this information helped you. Please rate my reply.

No power... Can it be the fuses? how do the fuse look when it blew?


Hi wrensch511,

Here are some basic steps that will help you fixing the problem.

I'm assuming that your unit is dead set without an standby LED light and your outlet is live.1.Power cord - check the cord it might be opened (no continuity).This is due to frequent bending,pulling. 2. Power switch - check for dry joints, open contact. 3.Check the internal fuse- sometimes the fuse fail because of the power surge, replacing with new one will cure the problem, If this is the case I would advice you to use surge protector/AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator). However if the fuse blew again this is an indication that you have a shorted parts in the power supply, you may visit the linkhttp://www.fixya.com/support/r8053361-fuse_keeps_blowing for more info. If no reaction and still the unit didn't power up then you have an open parts on the power supply.

4.If you see that the fuse is intact , don't attempt to touch anything because there some fatalcomponents stored electricity enough to hurt you with a simple mistake only. I would advice you to look for a professional to troubleshoot the power supply. If you want to repair it yourself make sure that you have necessary tools and test instrument. First check bad solder joints(re-solder all cold solder), leaky electrolytic capacitor(sometimes it has bulged at the top but not all, you better have a capacitor checker), open/shorted regulator transistor/IC(mounted in heat sink), open fusible resistor (caused by shorted regulator Transistor/IC), shorted zener diode.

You may also replace the power supply board, try online http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=LG+42PC3D&_sacat=0&_odkw=d038+transistor&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313


http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=LG+42PC3D

Also check if your unit is under warranty before opening the back panel, it will void the warranty. Avail it because the manufacturer of your unit will fix it for free or a little charge only.

Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

Thanks for using fixya.

We lost the cigarette ac adapter and purchased a new generic one, plugged it in and heard a popping noise. Now we can't get the dvd player powered up again. any suggestions


The end of the plug which gets inserted into the cigarette lighter/power port should unscrew. Inside is a fuse. You need to replace it with the identical size and rating of fuse. Check the unit with an ohm meter for any shorts between both conductors. If the unit is shorted toss it and get a new one. If it isn't shorted it should work with a new fuse. Let me know if you need any more help.

Ok , I replaced the fuse checked all connections and checked plug for power ! Still my lg lmv1630st will not show any power at all . What gives?


by replacing the fuse you meant the house circuit fuse or the microwaves internal fuse? and by conncetions your talking the internal wiring inside the case of the unit or wiring from the plug? if not its your 15 or 20 amp ceramic fuse inside the unit,if thats blown replace,but chk h.v.diode,v.v. cap,triac,control board, mis-adjusted interlock safety door switch,and lastly the mag could be defective

The fuse bloww try replacing it but keep


Has this air conditoner been running on these fuses for awhile, and is it just now starting to blow the fuses? If so then have a short in the air conditioner. If this is the first time you're trying to run this unit on these fuses, then you need to check the rating plate on the air conditioner for the full or rated load amps and see if your fuses or the outlet rating will carry the amps the unit is drawing.

No power!


There's an internal fuse - about 20 Amps. It usually blows when the magnetron dies. Unplug the unit from the wall and access the internals. You should plainly see the fuse holder - remove and check the fuse. Spares are available at any ACE hardware store. If the unit is more than 5 years old, I wouldn't mess with it.

Kenmore window air conditioner blows a fuse.


You got short circuit in the system. Then check the line where the fuse is blown that's where the fault is. Or if it is just the fuse for the two line, you have to check the entire unit.

What popped? the new fuse or something else? The pc board will have a transformer built on it. It looks like a little coil.The fuse is supposed to protect that, but if you replaced it with a larger amp that the original, then , it may have burnt the coil out. The plug is supposed to be a different design to prevent the wrong voltage from being applied like your case. Why was this able to happen? For example 208 looks like I- and 120 is like II
