Question about LG BG8000ER Air Conditioner

Open Question

Hello I have an LG window unit, model LWHD8000RY6 I hooked it up yesterday after having it in storage for the winter- dry, clean storage in my basement. It worked for about 2 hours, then the compressor turned off. The fan still runs, all of the display lights & switches function. I can hear the compressor trying to turn on, but it gives a quiet click-hum and then stops. The fan is still running, but no cold air. Any ideas?

It sounds to me like the compressor is overheating and tripping on internal or external overloads. After the unit cools down again it will try to run for a little while. Then this cycle would start over. I would check the condenser coil for dirt and filth. This portion of the unit may be on the out and backside of the unit. You should at least be able to see light through the coil.

I believe the thermistor that you removed temporarily is used for a freeze situation. I do not believe that it is your problem. Good luck:)

Check that the fanmotor can spin freely. If not, can be caused by seized bearing on left side of fanblade, or foreign object, insect nest stuck in fanblade. If however it spins freely, check that fanmotor is being supplied with voltage (you sound technically capable of operating a volt meter). If power is supplied, fanmotor is faulty and needs replacing. If no voltage, problem lies with the pc board. If you know someone who is capable let them check the relays on the board. Also you can check that all plug on connectors are making good connection.

Remove the front cover of the unit to expose the cooling coil. Put the unit on and observe if there will be formation of frost (ice) on the coil. If there's frost formation, the common cause is dirty cooling coil. Have it cleaned using an alkali base coil cleaner. If the coil is clean, then the problem is the fan motor. It might be turning slow due to copper loss. Have it replaced.

I have the 2700 PSI pressure washer and I cannot get the cleaning solution to run through the unit. any suggestions?


One of two possible problems: either the hose is plugged or the fitting where the hose goes into the down stream connection is plugged with dried up soap. This happens after winter storage. Clean out with pipe cleaner or air pressure. My problem was was dried soap at connection.

Air conditioner wont work after winter off


Make sure the filter is clean. When you remove the filter you should be able to see the evaporator coil. Make sure it's not clogged with dirt. If they are clean is the fan and compressor are running. If they are not working and with the cost of repair if no warranty. It's time for a new window unit.

I have a Maytag dryer that has been moved several times and been in storage for about 7 years. We hooked it up yesterday and the ignitor won't come on. It is an older model LDG7500AAL from 1991. Where...


The ignitor on a gas dryer is very sensitive. rough handeling (moving) usually will dammage it. Clean the underside of the machine inside with a vaccum. Check if the ingitor is glowing when on and in a heat setting? if not replace. The burner has a flame sensor that looks like a small window in the burner housing be sure it is clean as well. CLEAN unit first then trouble shoot.
