ERROR CODE ON AIRCONDITIONER LG ART COOL INVERTER MODEL NUMBER LSZ244VM4

Hi we keep getting error code c6 on the inside unit, we have tried cleaning the filter and resetting the power which helps for about 5 mins then it comes up again and stops working, you cannot turn the unit off, via remote or via the button on the side of the unit. We have 2 of these units and they both have the same error code and will not work, the manual has nothing in there about error code C6. Can you please help as the weather is becoming unbearable, do I need to call someone in. We have only had these units for about 14 mths.
thanks  in advance. We bought a set of 20 units. 5 of the units have these split systems in them. The tenants have reported this problem with 5 out of 5 of them. The units are great until they turn themselves off and show the error code C6.
Haven't approached anyone before now and not in a situation to be experimenting with them. Don't know where to go for help on this one. Starting here.

Hi,

The first thing i'll say is you will need to get it repaired by a technician and i strongly recommend you not to do it by urself.

Remote control units have diagnostic program in the
control, after 3 to 5 minutes of operating if the diagnostic
tools detect abnormal operation, then its shutdown the unit
to protect from damage. Thermistor sensor is one of the
parts that detect the operation of the unit. Out of range
or defective thermistor can shut the operation of the unit.
-
If your indoor and outdoor is clean start the unit in cool mode and monitor the outdoor pipes. If your suction pipe is icing or dry then your unit is under charge, but if your suction is cold and sweating then the system is ok and sure that the thermistor sensor is defective.
- Out of range thermistor sensor in both return air and freeze up sensor can cause the tripping “off “ the unit.

14 months old, may still be in warranty, and 5 out of 5 of your split systems exhibiting the same error code leads me to believe that yours aren't/shouldn't be the only ones with this problem.

Contact the retailer/wholesaler where you purchased them, as you should be considered a valued customer (considering you purchased 20 units) and I'm sure they will/should be anxious to correct this issue for you ASAP.

I searched the manual that IB4G2008 posted for you and found no mention of error C6 for your LG LSC183VMA systems there or any other troubleshooting resources for that matter (seems odd since you are having 5 for 5 with the same issue).

Good luck.

PS: I am an card holding EPA certified Refrigeration Tech. and believe IB4G2008 probably is also.

This "Clicking" is usually a Power Supply failure, I would imagine that when testing you may have been, "Spiked", and this has caused the power Supply to fail, or perhaps one of the logic boards, was spiked and the power supply is shutting down to avoid further damage.

Hello have a inverter LG Airconditioner and it keeps turning itself off and showing the letters C6? Any ideas


Error Code: C6 Problem: Inverter compressor run current high

SOLUTIONS:
- check [resistance of] compressor windings all equal 1 to 4 ohms

- check [resistance] to earth 50 Mohm minimum

- check run current

I'd also check the motor capacitor(s)

Probably best to explain/print out and give to authorised serviceman
