Question about Goldstar Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I just sent a question and then lost my internet connection. I am repeating the question briefly. I have a Goldstar window air conditioner, model R5050. It was in the home when I moved in. Any idea how old it is? Does it require any change of filter or repletion of coolant? If so, are these things available and how do I do it? Unit does not adequately cool the room. The room is a third floor (top floor) bedroom of a very tall home and it is 345 square feet with a 9 foot high ceiling. Thank you. Maureen O'Halloran, Newton MA mohalloran@rscj.org

Hi,

If you can send the serial number I can try and estimate the age.

The unit does not require replenishment of the coolant unless there is a leak in the sealed system part of the unit.

The maintenance on the unit is to clean the filter which is located just behind the front grill. It will slide in between the front panel and coils that look like a radiator in front.

Every couple of years it should be washed. It should be done from the outside, you can look in the side louvers from the outside and look at the coils in the back, if they are dusty or dirty, you can spray them with a hose from the outside in.

Other than that there is no maintenance, if cooling is not adequate from that point some would need to look at it from a repair standpoint.

I've had my air conditioner for a few years now and it no longer cools anything. The fan works, the condenser(?) turns on when I set it to cool instead of fan, but the air coming out of it isn't...


You need to determine if the compressor is running, if it is and you have no cooling then you either have lost charge or bad compressor, these units re not worth replacement compressor

My air conditionner is not working properly. It sends cool aire keep getting code E3 What can I do to fix it Tks


micheline, according to the LG Owner's Manual for the Model Number you listed, there is no LED display on the casement window unit (please see the Owner's Manual link below). How are you getting an E3 error code? Or by chance, did you list the wrong model number? Even Goldstar, that is made by LG, doesn't show your model number.

Please advise. Thanks.

GoldStar model GWHD5000


Make sure that the unit is properly mounted in the opening (I take it it's in a window) and that it is level or at least not tipping inward as in the outside being higher than the inside. If unsure about how to mount it properly, consult your owners manual. Your installation should be reasonably close to the illustrations.

Goldstar 10000 blows water out front


Two possible problems.
1. High humidity in the space being cooled
2. Drain line that runs from the front (where the water is blowing out) to the back where it is sent to evaporate. Clean out the drain line and condensate pan under the fins where the water is blowing out.
