Sounds like you are over heating the compressor, try cleaning the out door unit coil. Take a hose and blow water through it, be carefull not to bend the fins.

What is the voltage reading at the compressor? Are the fans inside and outside the fridge working? I believe your model is found in Europe correct? Is there a computer board found on the back of your model? Can you provide photos? Contact Me Here

How lpw of a temp. Can this freezer reach..and and if only 0 degree could the thermostat temp control be changed out so it could reach les than 0 temperatures like negative 20 or so?


There are different models made for holding different products. Yours has a 1/3 hp compressor for above 20 degs. It may have 0 on the thermostat and may well pull down that far, but -20 would be out of it's reach. Where as it's sister model is made to freeze to below zero has a 3/4 hp compressor. Larger compressor for the lower temps.

Had the dehumidifier about 7 years & it has worked


It may simply be a case of one of the following:

1. The humidity extraction level is set to high. If your unit has an LED readout, lower it to 32 to 35%.

2. Remove and check the air intake filter. It may be dirty or clogged. Clean the filter if necessary.

3. Obstructed air space. You must maintain a minimum of 12" of free air space around the entire unit, while in operation.

4. The ambient air temperature is to cold for the unit to function properly. This usually occurs in basement applications. Where the ambient air temp at floor level is colder the air temp at chest level. Dehumidifiers (Unless, it's a Low Temp Model) strain at temps between 40 & 60 degrees F. Place the unit up off the floor or a sturdy table, counter top, etc. that will handle the weight of the unit, plus a full bucket of water.

The above were simple solutions to simple problems. The more critical ones would involve reiar or replacement.

1. Low refrigerant gas. Compressor would need to recharged.

2. Humidi-stat Sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.

The recharging of the compressor cost wise, is not a big deal. Finding some who has the equipment to do it properly, may be a problem.

Replacing the sensor (if you can find one for a 7 year old dehumidifier) is more of a challenge cost wise and labor wise. In the end, it may be better to purchase a new energy efficient model that has a warranty and the option of purchasing an extended warrant. Which can be money well spent.

Hope this helped you to troubleshot and solve the problem. Please be kind enough to let me know. Thanks.

LG LRFC22750ST fridge is 3 years old and the top half has stopped cooling. The freezer seems to work ok. This happened a couple of weeks ago where I opened the door and found the refrigerator half...


During the Automatic defrosting cycle there is a 60 Deg F thermostat on the evaporator that must cycle to terminate the defrost cycle and restart the compressor. If for some reason the defrost heating element is not coming on (failed / open / wire terminal problem) The the unit will just sit not operating until it reaches 60 F in the evaporator section of the freeser compartment. I suspect that you have an Automatic defrost heating element problem. Again that can be from a broken wire / terminal or the element itself has failed. It is possible that the 60 deg F thermostat itself is sticking and not cycling when the temp of the evaporator reaches 60F. It can also be caused by the temperature control that does not complete the circuit and start the unit when the fresh food section reaches cycling temp 34 - 37 deg F.

Your particular unit uses a thermistor and what is listed as a sensor to control the defrost and cycle temp circuits.

Sensor is Item 903E

I am NOT telling to order anything thing. The only way to find out is to read out the components.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

This requires that the back of the freezer compartment be opened to troubleshoot and repair. Troubleshooting is done via resistance checks from the defrost control board or timer to the compressor. Usually blue wire from the control to the orange wire on the compressor then finding out which component has failed by reading resistance before and after each component.

The only way to find out is to use a meter.

My LG LWHD2500ER problem??


The compressor has an overload. Your description sounds like it is cycling. It may be a faulty overload, but typically that is a symptomof a compressor or refrigerant charge problem. Typically not worthy repairing on a window unit.

Brand new equipment compressor work 5 minutes,


sounds like your slugin oil back to compressor and its over working itself especially cause you have low amprage,you need to pull a vacum on the systemm and bring it down to -25 psi and hold that vac.charge for a good 2 or 3 hrs and then recharge with new freon not the freon that was pull out of system,dont flip jug or try to put any liquid in even know the system will act like it wants liquid just add the gas slowly and it will eventually recoop it charge and amprage should rise to 8.9 to 9.2 depending on the outside temp.note: if this unit is under warranty by manufacture they should replace it due to the fact of a brand new unit that has never ran properly since installed call manufacture for complete waranty details heres the basic warranty this unit comes with and phone # - WARRANTY

Ac not blowing cold after outside temp reaches 98 degrees


Sounds like you have dirty condenser coils. Remove the upper shroud and check the condenser for clean. Take a water hose and gently spray out the coils paying special attention not to bend the coils over with too much pressure. This will allow more air movement through the coils and give you better cooling efficiency.

Hope this helps,

Hello, We bought a Perry Home in Georgetown TX last March and it is still under its two year warranty. Our air conditioner stopped cooling today. It has been working well for over 1 year. We came home...


You have a 10 year warranty on your AC. Call a Goodman rep and have it serviced. It will probably be a bad compressor capacitor. Bad wire or no refrigerant.

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.
