Question about LG LS-L1210CL Mini Split Air Conditioner

1 Answer

My 3-year old LG air-conditioner was leaking water. So i called some 'experts' to come fix it. This is the first time I called for maintenance service on the air conditioner. The 'experts' dismantled some parts of the air-conditioner and washed out a lot of dirt and sticky stuff. After they put the air-conditioner back, there was no more water leaking but I noticed 2 new problems. When I switch on the air conditioner, the mouth does not immediately swing open, it takes about 3 minutes before it swings open. Second problem is worse -- after the air conditioner runs for 5 minutes it starts to spew white flakes like it is snowing! What should I do?

White snow.. I had this issue when 2 inside unit electrical lines were hooked up backwards at the compressor. The compressor would pump too often and overcool the inside unit, because it was using the wrong temperature sensor. But you could have a different issue. I'd have them recheck your freon levels, that can cause it to cool too much - should be 120-135psi when it is running, after 5-10 minutes or so. They adjust this for the outside temperature though.

My heater control valve has a small leak it looks like water is dripping from it


Not enough information to fully answer question.

Control valve is usually associated with the gas line and gas control valve.
There should not be water dripping from control valve.

If you are uncertain about parts on gas water heater, I suggest calling service technician.
There are several advantages. The technician can service the appliance and ensure there is no dangerous gas leaks or dangerous CO vent leaks.
And if your water heater is rusted and leaking, then service technician can prevent a possible flood.

Some gas is heavier than air and settles to floor, so always check for gas smell near floor level.
The combustion product from a water heater contains odorless CO which is poisonous, and must be vented outdoors so it will kill other things besides you.
The service technician can also see maintenance issues since gas water heaters require yearly maintenance, and some require more frequent attention.
Finally the service technician can give you a few tricks and tips for taking care of your water heater.

If you add a comment with the brand, type and model number of water heater, I can possibly locate a manual for that product which can help both you and me understand your water heater better.

My LG 1 ton window AC is in running (as the sound of running compressure is there)but there is no cooling effect inside, nor any heat in the outside fins.The ac is only 2 years old. Is it due to leakage of...


Hi, if you can hear the compressor running and its blowing room temperature air only, yes, if the air from the out side condenser coil is not hot, I would say you are low or almost out of freon. This is something you will have to call a tech out to find the leak and recharge. Even though it is only 2 years old, they can get leaks due to vibration. I don't know what you paid for it, but it will cost some $$$$ to have someone come out. It may be cheaper to replace it, as the leak could be in one of the coils which it wouldn't be worth fixing. Let me know on what you decide and if you need my help.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS Take a water hose and wash the out side coil off. do not bend the fins. See if it starts to cool then. If not, you are low on charge.

Air condition cleaning


hi! there,
if your unit is almost five years from now,its more convenient to have a maintenance schedule every two to three time a year,if this a windows type,cleaning of ac unit mostly the eveporator and condenser should free from dust,upon installing,the a/c unit should be eleveted down on condenser,the tray should have a drain with hose to drip the water outside your room,so that water will not leak on your light,see this may cause electrical fault resulted on burning.have always clean the filter.try to inform the maintenance crew to elevate the condenser portion down gradually so that water will drip outside the room.have anice day,don't forget get to rate me,and thank's a lot.

COILS FREEZING


If your coils and filter are clean and you have good air flow then you are very likely low on refrigerant. Most A/C's (depending on use) have about a 20 year lifespan. I would call a Tech. to check it.
