Question about LG Goldstar GWHD5000 wall/window Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Air conditioner keeps shutting on and off...

Hi, my model is a Goldstar GWHD5000 room air conditioner. I think I may have a problem with it. Recently I started to noticed the motor goes on and off but the fan still keeps on going. It's more off than being on. Someone told me that's how air conditioners are in order to save energy according to how hot it's outside and inside of the room but I'm noticing this on and off routine in my AC more than usual even if the weather outside is fair. The filters are cleaned, do I need to clean more than just the filters itself? Thanks for the help.

I have a goldstar room air conditioner.GWHD5000. Cani just plug it into a room . i have no window .


Hi,
You could and it will blow cold air on you if you are sitting in front of it, but the net effect is that it will actually end up heating the room up hotter overall, because you are not discharging any heat outside and you are running motors now that create more heat..

Do you have to add water to the air conditioner?


NO

if its an air conditioner not humidifier etc, then no!

it will create condensation which can mislead people into thinking it has a leak, this is normal. it is only moisture taken from the air we are cooling

cheers

Air conditoner model gwhd5000 goldstar does not cool


Hi, first you will need to know, what type refrigerant,(freon) your a/c used, if you need to add freon, there's a leak in your a/c. you will have to find and repair leak, before you can charge/ add refrigerant(freon) . automobile a/c can be easily recharge (add) to system, but your window a/c unit, has the same principles but different approach, if you don't have experience, you will have to call mechanic, make sure you have a freon leak, before calling mechanic, plug a/c on let it work, put hands close to a/c, feel or check temperature of air blowing out from a/c, make sure compressor is working/running, fans could be working/ but compressor not, also put a/c thermostat to max, your model no. GWHD5000. means your unit is 5000 b.t.u, (british thermal unit) measurement of heat transfer, am wondering if a/c is to small for your space/room. making you think it needs freon, 5000. b.t.u. is for a small space,like a room 10' by 10' like a storage area or small bedroom, keep bedroom door/windows shut. measure you room/space/area , the bigger space/area needed to be cooled, has a chart, maybe you can find it on internet, any way a 10.000 or 12.000 b.t.u a/c is better buy, for normal room/space etc. so check compressor especially to make sure working, a/c could be to small for space/room, check it at night to see if it's colder. don't try to put gas/ freon yourself, could be very dangerous. but before calling mechanic, check those thing, mention before, could be your a/c are to small, for space/room etc. remember before attempting any repairs, disconnect power. good luck.

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.

Not getting cold anymore


Unit has probably lost its charge of refrigerant.

Check for warranty, or buy another one.

Usually they are not worth repairing, sorry

Cooling motor shuts on and off...


No it is not normal. You might have a bad capicator to the motor.
Is your unit still under Warranty? If so. Call the service center.
