Question about Heating & Cooling

Hello, I have an LG LHD65EBL that will run for a few minutes when turned on and then I can hear the fan and compressor shut off, but I still hear a humming noise and it smells like it's burning. Time for a new one or is it repairable? Thanks, Jim NJ

    I took the fan motor out and cleaned it all up, oiled it and it worked for a few hours and then quit again. Time for a new one. Thanks for the tip!

Hi.
Yes, it is probably best to replace it...
The problem is probably the fan motor....and while it is technically repairable, the cost would be more then it is worth when comparing the repair cost to new....

A quick search shows pricing in the 200 buck ball park...

Till you pay 100 bucks for that motor and then figure labor.... you get the picture...

Wish I could give you better news...

It's either a fan or compressor failure, sounds like. You might contact an A/C repair shop to see how much they would fix it for, then price a new unit, and go from there. The burning is probably motor windings shorting out in the compressor, which can be costly.
Check with a shop, but take in to account all factors (age of your unit, condition), and determine if it's feasible to repair or replace.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Error code 67


Error code 67 is an airflow problem. Either clogged filter or bad blower motor. Unplug unit remove bucket and feel for filter in front behind cover it drops down. Clean filter with water and reinsert. Plug unit in turn to "on", fan should begin to run, after 3-5 minutes compressor should start. If fan does not start it is bad and should be replaced.

I have an LG model LHD65EBL dehumidifier. The humidistat will not change from 70 when I push either + or -. The fan runs well and the compressor sounds like it is running well Some water comes out when the...


Prt of the problem may be a dirty or clogged air intake filter.

Turn the unit OFF and unplug, it before removing the filter to check and clean it.
You can ether vacuum it or if it's really dirty & clogged, wash it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly, shake off access water and allow it to dry completely, before reinstalling it.
Never operate the unit without the filter in place. As this could damage the unit.

Plug the unit back in and turn it ON. Try lowering the humidity extraction level now, using the arrow down button. For a very damp, humid basement application 35% is a good setting to start with for several days.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

First, tunr the unit OFF and unplug it for 10 minutes. Then plug it back in and turn it ON. It will automatically set at 70%. Press the - button and lower the humidity extraction level to 45% in increments of 5%. Once you reach 35% press and the - button one more time. Now the unit is set to run continuously, until the bucket is full and the unit turns OFF automatically or you manually turn the unit OFF.

When running load noise coming from black cylinder


That part you identified is the compressor of the dehumidifier. Compressor is probably bad or going bad. When compressor go bad the valves start making noise and they lose alot of there efficiency.

Everything seems to run fine, just hasn't pulled a drop of water


remove the back airfilter, and touch the tubes while the unit is running, if nice and cold, all is well, there just isnt any moisture there. but if compressor is running and tubes are warm , means freon/coolant has leaked out

LG PTAC acting strange in heat mode


I believe the problem in lies in the dual stage heat mode setup on the thermostat, but the unit going into defrost does make the unit act kinda strange. Even more so than other types of equipment. I would suggest hiring a licensed HVAC service technician if the problem cannot be resolved by yourself.
