Question about LG LB1200ER Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I have this model of air conditioner and it shuts off from time to time. It will run for a while and then power down. Then when you try to restart it will run for a few mins and shut down again. But I tried it in a different out let and it will run for a longer period of time. It is not tripping the breaker on any outlets. Is this an issue with the compressor getting over work and it shutting down to cool off?

That is a possibility. Try feeling the cord when this happens, is it getting hot?

SOURCE: air conditioner keeps tripping breaker

Every air conditioner has a motor called a compressor. The compressor provides the cooling capacity for the air conditioner. If the compressor or its electrical controls are defective the compressor may try to start, fail, and create an electrical overload. If the unit does create an overload, every compressor circuit is also equipped with an overload safety switch. The safety switch is designed to protect the compressor from burning out. The safety switch will cut the power to the compressor for a certain length of time and then reset itself. When it resets it will allow the electricity to flow to the compressor once again. If the compressor then starts, the unit should function normally. If the compressor doesn't start when the overload resets, the overload will again cut the electricity to the compressor. This cycle will continue indefinitely. (Always allow three to five minutes before restarting the compressor.) If this situation is occurring, unplug the air conditioner and get help from a qualified repair technician. This problem is often fatal to the air conditioner because the cost of repair often exceeds the price of a new air conditioner.

if this helps please vote me a fix ya

SOURCE: Air conditioner compressor keeps shutting down

This is due to thermal overload,Which can be caused by low oil in the compressor,the fan has stopped running on the unit outside,Dirty coils,or just a worn out compressor.Although this is thermal overload,It has nothing to do with outside temperature,But rather the internal temperature of the compressor itself.

SOURCE: dometic rv air conditioner over 100 deg. trips breaker.

The problem is that when u add up the electrical draw from all of these appliances running full bore, your draw exceeds your available amperage. Now you are doing the math and saying no...... Let me tell you why. It is rare to find a situation where a 100 amp service actually porovides 100 amps. You almost always have voltage dropo. And when you are adding extension cords to the mix the drop is even more. That said, When you are using the AC try to minimize the use of other appliances, especially the microwave which is a big draw too.

Mr slim ac shuts down and restarts to frequently.


Changing the setting won't affect the way the unit works, only how long it runs for. Rapid switching off and on will kill your compressor in time - check the refrigerant level. Usually short cycling on lp switch.

You may have a low pressure or high pressure switch tripping out the board as well. You might try cleaning both the indoor (evaporator) coil and the outdoor (condensing) coil. Be sure to turn off the power source before servicing this.

Duo-therm quick cool


Your compressor is trying to restart after it shuts off which is causing a power draw down changing the sound of the fan speed change. Check voltage power supply and insure that the power supply cord is heavy enough to carry the necessary load.

This could apply to at least one of your units. Apparently these models have had some trouble with the compressor capacitor wires coming loose. If they're barely touching they could cause the compressor to run intermittently and possibly overheat. The compressor runs in heating and cooling mode.
