Question about LG Electronic Window Air Conditioner

1 Answer

We bought an LG Electronics LT1030CR Air Conditioner about 2 months ago. Since the beginning the thing has been make this grinding noise every minute to minute and a half. We moved it around, made sure it was balance, made sure that nothing was touching the back (which has for of the back stuff esposed but with like a fence I guess is a good way of describing it) but anyway nothing is touching and it is still making that awful grinding noise. Does anyone know what could be wrong with it.

    Ok so it's the compressor. But what's wrong with it? What am I suppose to do to it or with it?

Well, rattling noise would be something loose, actual grinding noise would be the compressor,

    Same problem with 2 new units. I investigated and found that the fan is rubbing against it's housing. The housing is made of plastic and isn't attached at the top and consequently it deflects (sags) and rubs against the moving fan blades. It is a bad manufacturing decision and I don't have the time or experience to fix it. The BAD decision to make a structural part of the air conditioned out of plastic and hold it in place with double stick tape should be solved by a recall by the manufacturer.

My LG LWHD 7000 is not heating.


heater coil located behing the front evaporator coil has burnt out. To access the coil you need to remove the a/c from its sleeve and the coil is located between the evaporator coil and the fan motor. An appliance parts house will have the replacement coil if you do it yourself.

Good Luck on your repair hope this helped

Air Conditioner just stopped working


verify that the fan is free to spin and not binded, window units are bad for this due to close tolerances in the small cases

Our LG LDF7920st dishwasher (6 months old)makes a whistling noise


Hey, consider the float assembly!

We bought this dishwasher and ran it for the last 1 1/2 months and it made a grinding and whistling sound from day one (it's supposed to be nearly silent in its operation). Turns out the drain pump was cutting in while the machine was still filling, thereby emptying the wash tub of any water. Then, when the cycle proceeded to wash, the dumb thing had no water and made a horrible noise. So I had to pitch in at least 2-3 litres of hot water, and then it worked quietly! Had to do this every time there was new water intake.

After working with the repairmen - four visits later, we isolated the float assembly as the problem and they set about replacing the part. Turns out the two parts were markedly different. LG HAD INSTALLED an older model float assembly at the factory and it was the problem. The replacement part was the correct float assembly and things worked perfectly after that - thank goodness. No more babysitting the dishwasher.

Don't let anyone tell you the motor assembly needs replacement. I have seen that cop-out 'fix' all over the web. But use deductive reasoning to find out where the problem is in the cycle, and explore this option first - it's a quicker and cheaper fix than replacing the whole motor assembly.

'Mr. Float' as he is now called works like this:
-expels any residual water in the tub from the last wash
-intakes water for the wash or rinse
-whirs 2-3 times prepping for the cycle
-begins to wash, quietly
-expels at the end of the wash or rinse.

He used to:
-expel residual water
-intake new water for wash or rinse
---drain pump would cut in WHILE still filling
-machine would whir once, realize it didn't have enough water
-perform a brief top-up intake shot
-begin to wash and whistle and GRIND (this is where I would have to add the water)
-expels water from wash or rinse, and start all over again.

It's a good dishwasher and it will work, but the right model parts have to be in place!

Ac do not drop down the tempture of room.


I have the same problem. Sounds like the unit is stuck in "Dry Mode". Dry Mode runs the compressor for short intervals (like one minute at a time). Mine is only 2 months old and worked great until a few days ago.
