Question about LG Art Cool LA181CNW Split System Air Conditioner

1 Answer

My LS-H186 VML 1Metal Art Cool 12000 BTU Air Con does not heat up

The Aircon works fine on the cooling side but when the heating side is switched on the aircon goes into the heatig stage and the light in the front comes on showing that it is heating up, but the air coming out of the aircon is cold.

At first the aircon did not work on the cooling side nether but after I cleaned the filter the cooling side worked perfectly.

You should also check the outside unit to make sure the coil is not clogged with dirt or grass clippings and the fan is working. The reversing valve that switches it from cool to heat could also be a problem. If it isn't shifting it will not switch between heat and cool.

Turns on and then turns immediately off. Does not blow any air.


Check if it gots a fuse or safety plug, maybe even a different outlet. Besides that I don't know maybe the filter needs cleaned? I'm not expert.

    WHY DOES MY RADIATOR FAN COMES ON ONLY WHEN MY AC IS ON ON MY 88 TOYOTA COROLLA


    Hi,
    it is generally because the air con heat exchanger has to be cooled in order for your air con to work correctly and cool the interior of your car.


    The air conditioning utilises a gas by the name of freon. This gas is pumped around the air con system by a compressor. The gas, going through the aircon cooler or heat exchanger, starts to cool down. Depending on the system layout, the gas is forced through a very small aperture situated after the cooler. It reverts to a liquid, passes through the matrix in the car, a fan blows the interior air of the car through the matrix. The fluid picks up the heat, and cooler air exits the matrix and, (hopefully) cools the interior of the car. This endless cycle is repeated as long as the air con is powered on.

    Hope this brief description will suffice.

    I have installed an LMU246 with two heads. One 9000 BTU and the other is a 12000 BTU. The 12000 seems to work fine but the 9000 head dosent cool and when I tried it on heating, a c7 code comes...


    with the Lmu24 you have a variable speed compressor i wouldn't suggest attacking this repair on you own, get a Nate certified Sr. service tech out there and have them do cause your taking about high end cutting edge compressor technology, how ever if you need them i can email you a pdf copy of both owners and service manual.

    Frigidaire fac127p1a 12000 btu compressor


    The compressor is probably going out on either a pressure related or heat related overload. Both are a result of low refrigerant. There may be a low pressure safety swich that protects the compressor. Otherwise it may be an internal thermal overload that is tripping. It resets itself and comes back on. The thermal overload heats up and shuts off the compressor to protect it from too much heat which is gernerated by not enough refrigerant in the system to keep the compressor cool. It may be cheaper to replace the unit than have someone try and fix it. It is pretty time consuming and you cannot try it yourself unless you have an EPA Certificate to buy the refrigerant. Check with your local appliance repair man to see if he will tackle it.

    One thing you need to check is Polarity. the 2 wires red and white, need to be on the same terminals inside as they do outside. this is very important.

    Airconditioner LG LSk181-N2 shutting off


    Sounds like your aircon is stuck on heating mode. Or. The outdoor fan speed is affected by ambient temperature, or low refrigerant. In heating mode the indoor fan will come on for a while to sense temperature and will then wait for the outdoor unit to pump up pressure and build up heat.

    Heather don't work


    If the unit still works on cooling you might have a faulty reversing valve/ heating plate. If you are confident with a multi meter you could test if they have power going to it and see if you have a faulty part but it would be best to get some tech help out
