The device is most likely low on refrigerant, you need to have it charged which means, more needs to be added. This could also be caused by inadequate air flow but most likely the refrigerant is low because of a leak and only a certified repairman can usually fill them and fix them. If you continue to run it the way it is, you will most likely damage the pump. Please let me know of any other questions you may have and I would be more than happy to answer them.

good luck on getting this fixed

How can I change air conditioner filter?


Should only be a fine nylon mesh screen behind the front panel. Unclip the front panel and remove screen then wash with water, let dry and replace.

My aw0893l air conditioner does not get cold. do i need freon?


Well first off is the compressor running? When you turn on the unit the fan will start. Turn the unit on to fan only. Then turn it into the cooling mode do you hear something else start? That would be the compressor. Remove the front panel so you can see the cooling coil (evaporator ) if it is freezing and has frost on just part of the coil top or bottom you have lost Freon or a system restriction.. One of the major problems with air cons is a very dirty or plugged condenser coil, which is the outside coil. If you have cotton wood trees in your area this is probably the problem.

Hope this helps Lynn

MY GE ROOM AIR CONDITIONER AGH08AJG1 SWITCH BETWEEN COOL AND FAN EVERY 5 MINUTES APROXIMATELY NEVER SATYS COOLING UNTIL THE DESIRED TEMPERATURE IS REACHED


Check and clean the filter if found to be dirty. It is usually behind a decorative panel below the cold air output grates (when the cold air is on the top front).

The filter is behind the large, rectangular, slotted front panel. The evaporator coil is behind the filter. The fan behind the evaporator pulls the room air through the filter and evaporator coil where it is cooled and dehumidified. It is then discharged through the grates on the top of the front.

Direct the airflow from the unit up and away or left / right to prevent the cool air from being drawn in the front of the unit (this is where the thermostat sensor is located). Use the highest fan speed to help force the air away from the intake, too. Inspect the condenser and evaporator coils (condenser is outside and evaporator is directly behind the filter. Clean if dirty or icing over. Be sure to install a filter if none was present. There are products made specifically for cleaning between the fins of the condenser and evaporator coils. Use them only as directed.

If these suggestions do not work, you may have a problem with the thermostat, refrigerant level, condenser or condenser fan.

Good luck!

Works and appears to blow out semi cold air, but not cold enough to cool room down......


Hello, first thing is check the condition of the filter on the front of the unit, if it is dirty wash it and let it dry then reinstall it. Also, it is a good idea to clean the evaporator coil with a can of coil cleaner that you can pick up at any heating and cooling store. Just spray cleaner on evaporator coil and let it dry. If this does not solve the problem tjen the unit might be undercharged and will need a hvac tech to recharge it.

LG LWHD8000RY6 Air Conditioner Not Cooling Room


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.
