Hi, I looked up you're unit to see just what I already assumed it was, a split system, ductless,9kb.t.u. Ok, 1st go to the outdoor unit to see if it comes on when you turn your t-stat to heating, and be sure you lower the temp. enough to do this test. There maybe a time delay before it starts up, but not long,1-1/2 min. If it doesn't start up, we know that there is a problem.If not on, make sure you check for the power source, locate the breaker it may have tripped, or right at the unit there is a elect. box that should contain 2-fuses.They may be hidden from site under a shield you may have to remove. Check all of this only if this unit is not running. Reset breaker, or replace fuses if not running.If that was the problem and it was off, and now its on, you will have to watch it and if it continues to loose power, you have a problem in a componant as the compressor, condenser fan motor, open or shorted run cap, contactor Ect.You could have developed a freon leak, and it could be off on low pressure.If it is running, it still could be low on freon, reversing valve not changing over, many things can cause this Im afraid to say.The main thing to do or to start, would be to make sure that the outdoor unit is on, fan on, and compressor running if you listen at where the wiring and copper lines enter.You may need to call a tech if you check these things i have suggested and you have no luck. Please be safe and let me know, and we can go from there before you call anyone out.

How do I fix my Lg split system air conditioner myself because it will not stay on any more?

probably not beyond help just beyond your capability to fix as it needs to be properly tested to find exactly what is the fault
the price of a new one is considerable but against a technician call charge where you will find exactly requires repairing and that will allow you to replace any faulty parts cheaply
failure to get advice first will be more costly in the long run as you will be throwing parts at it without success.

I tried to turn on my air coditioning today for the first time this year and my Totaline Themostat P474-1050 won't turn on. Worked fine during the winter and last summer.

the thermostat is powered by the unit or batteries if batteries they may be dead if the unit you need to check fuses outside at unit or reset breaker outside depending on age of installation

Bought this LG unit (LWHD7000HR) summer of 2010 and it worked fine - used very rarely. Did not use heat in winter either. Went to turn it on this summer and it does not cool. Fan operates but compressor...

Unplug the a/c and check the control panel of your a/c. Unscrew the control panel to expose the wires and terminal lugs.Check for lose wires or terminal lugs or defects from the compressor capacitor. If all are OK try adjusting the thermostat switch to make the contacts work. If the capacitor is damage replace it and replace any damage terminal lug. If the compressor still does not work, check the overload and the compressor resistance. If overload is open, replace it and check compressor amperage. If the compressor amperage is high, you have to replace the compressor, vacuum, and recharge freon.

A.c. shuts off frequently

If you stored the unit upside down or sideways, the oil may have run out of the compressor. If the unit is reinstalled, it's important to let it sit in the correct position at least 24 hours before starting it back up.

Also check the condenser coil (the part of the unit that's sticks outside) and make sure it's clean. Likewise, check the filter and the evaporator coil (the coil on the inside) to make sure they are both clean.

1998 Mazda Protege air conditoner blows warm air

Chances are that if nothing over the winter poked a hole in the condensor, 1 or more of the O-rings that are at each joint / connection, has dried out therefore allowing the refrigerant to leak past the seal. Have a qualified tech check it to be sure. The cost may be a minimal 1.

Hunter thermastat, model 44860 not working

Is the compressor running? is the outside unit clean and free from debris? does this unit work in the heating mode during the winter, and is it still capable of that now.

After storing away for the winter, unit has no power.

Just a wild guess but maybe it's not warm enough to activate the display?
