Question about LG LA120HYV Art Cool 120HYV Ultra Efficiency SingZone Inverter Mini Split Air Conditioner System with 12 000 BTU Cooling 13 600 BTU Heating and Indoor and Outdoor Unit in White
When I start my LG with my remote it shows that we are set in the heating mode (the sun). After about 15 minutes, without touching the remote, the machine basically turns off and on the machine (not the remote because nothing has changed on the remote, it still shows a "sun" for heat) there is a snowflake with a water drop underneath showing that it is on cooling and dehumidifying? What does this mean and how can I stop it from happening?
Sounds to me like it is defrosting the outdoor unit. Is this possible? The process takes a little bit to complete but it will then start up again.

Wash out your outside coil and monitor the outside fan. sounds like a lockout due to dirty condenser or intermittent motor operation. Could mean condencer air problem.

I talked to LG customer support (800) 243-0000. The tech told me that this model had a problem with the indoor thermistor. It doesn't fail with an open-circuit condition, so you don't get an error code. The thermister just goes out of range and believes your indoor temp is much hotter than it is. That's why the heating never comes on. I'll bet that, even though it ran in COOLING mode, once your room reached setpoint, it just kept on cooling & cooling ... because the thermistor was still giving a false, high temp reading.
So, I bought a new thermistor, P/N 6323A20042A. My unit worked fine. Until the next week when I turned heating back on and now I have the same problem ... gives cooling but no heat. Something is failing the indoor thermistor OR the distributor sent me an old-style thermistor, I haven't gotten determination on that yet.
Regardless, call LG and see if they can't direct you to a distributor for an indoor sensor. LG's warranty coverage for parts is a royal pain, unless you can show a receipt by a certified installer, you're not going to have much luck getting payment for the part. However, the thermistor is only $10. Just hope you get one that doesn't fail on you!
