Question about LG Refrigerators

LST243C-2 Air COnditioner

I have an LG LST243C-2 air conditioner in my unit. The previous owner did not leave a manual. They air conditioner appears to be working but does not cool. I would like to try cleaning the compressor, but do not have the instructions. Can you provide these or suggest other reasons why it may no longer be cooling even though it appears to be in working order otherwise. Thanks.

SOURCE: Freezer works; fridge side doesn't

First thing to check is look and see if there is  thick frost build up on the back lower panel inside the freezer?  If not there must be a problem in the damper (vent).  Let me know what you find so I can help.

SOURCE: LG fridge suddenly stopped cooling.

If the fan inside the freezer is running and the compressor behind the fridge is running and is hot to touch, you have a gas problem or the compressor is inefficient. This can only be confirmed by connecting refrigeration gauges to the gas system and should only be performed by a fridge tech.

SOURCE: Electricity works, unit doesn't cool.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

This is a 6 or 8 bottle free-standing wine cooler from what I can tell.

I am not having much luck determining if this is a manual defrost type unit or not. Given the inital sales price now of $79.95 I have to assume it is a manual defrost type.

There are a few things that can cause your problem.

1. PTC relay and KliXon thermal overload assy on the compressor.

2. Run capacitor

3. Temp control

You said the fan does not run so I cab not rule out the temp control.

I can not even find a parts break down of the unit.

With no fan running the very first suspect is the temp control but you can at least listen for a CLICK when you cycle it from off to any other position. If you hear a click I would start looking at compressor start / run parts.

If you have access to your units compressor note the manufacturer, hp if stated (1/8hp etc) and Model number.

Then call or visit your local appliance parts supply store with that information in hand. The will have a PTC relay / KilXon thermal overload AND run capacitor that will fit your unit. I am pretty sure that will get you going again UNLESS you have a broken wire somewhere.

The replacement parts are going to run about 50% of the cost to replace the whole thing.

Thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: Kenmore 596.50692001 side by side stopped cooling.

You most likely have a fried overload, it is the small white square shaped piece on the compressor, to tell if it is bad, remove it and smell it for electric burning smell, or if you shake it and it sounds like sand shaking around it is definately bad. costs around $25 to replace. You can purchas this at using your model number.

I have a Kenmore model #58075184500 is it safe to cover the out side of unit when using heater?

No, it is NOT safe to cover the outside! When using an air conditioner as a heater, it basically just reverses it operation. If you have ever stood outside near the rear of the unit when the unit is cooling, you feel the heat it is exhausting. This is the heat removed from the room it was cooling. When you use the air conditioner to heat a room, you are essentially air conditioning (cooling) the outside world. The unit extracts whatever heat it can from the outside air and exhausts it into the room. Covering the outside of the unit prevents this from happening. It could cause failure or fire.

Can i add more refriger to my air conditioner its cold when it starts but not cold enought

Adding more coolant to a frig. requires special equipment, training and technically a special license. You might say that industry is tightly wrapped.

The cost of doing the work yourself would be more than the cost of a new a/c.
