1 Answer

Twice the heat went out LG 18000 5 year warranty. 1st time unit sparked inside the unit, Tech came out couldn't repair was given a new unit (2 weeks out of service) had to buy 2 floor heaters at a cost 125.00 as temporary measure. 2nd time out was a year later. (used twice for heat) Waited for tech 1 day called to cancel that day for the next day and would be at house between 6 - 8pm. Never showed called at 7:30pm and asked me some questioned. Tech ordered updated heater core. He stated was a common problem with unit and that a updated heater core has been made and that the problem is the condenser with air caused moisture and that wiring terminal rusts. (Waiting for repairs 5 days so far) Weather is cold outside (35-40F) Girlfriend staying at friends house while cold. Tech stated that if yellow light operated with a relay click board was OK Since this is the 2nd unit to go bad is the problem resolved with the new heater core?

Was the first unit a different model ? what the repairman said is pretty much right but they should be more ontime and communicate if they want a good name. the unit should work fine after replacing if it doesn't dont pay for the part

Gree 18000 Btu Air Conditioner , f2 appears on display


F2 is an indoor pipe sensor fault. You will need an air con tech or electrician to do this as the sensor is wired into the indoor board. Gree parts can be a bit difficult to obtain but a similar sized pipe sensor from an LG or Teco unit will work. You may have to "splice" the new sensor onto the existing pipe sensor wiring as the connection to the indoor board will likely be different. Contact LG or Teco for your colsest parts outlet or buy direct from them.

Installed new LG 18000 btu mini split heat pump, started it in heating mode, the unit first appears to run fine but continues to cycle in and off without reaching temp. have already changed indoor board...


a heat pump is a finely tuned machine that can be very efficient yet very frustrating at times. I could give you better advice if I were looking at the unit but hear are some things that may help. The unit has a defrost mode that cycles every 30,60,or 90 minutes. If you take the cover off of the condensing unit and near the top you will see the adjustor. unless you live in arctic or very humid cilimates, it should not be set to 30 min. Also the unit may be low on refrigerant. you can check this with a thermometer. put the therm. on the hot gas line(big one) and it should be 110 degrees hotter than the outside temp. Insulate the point of contact around the therm. and gas line. Also, your aux. heat may not be coming on to supplement the heat from the pump. i.e. the fusable link could have burned up and the heating element wouldnt be coming on(elec. models). there are too many variables and combinations of problems that could cause this.

American Standard blower will not run


Sounds like motor has failed. If the red light is blinking it may be telling you what is wrong by the number of blinks. It maybe locked out for some reason or loose wire. Try turning off breakers to inside unit for 5 mins and try again, this may reset unit. But it sounds like a bad motor or circut board. Try running with stat in on position instead of auto in cooling mode.

Loud Thump each time the Drum Rotates


A new drum and rollers should have solved this issue. The rollers were upgraded to have a harder rubber consistency about 1 year ago. Ensure that the technician did not use old stock parts. The new, updated rollers should have a blue dot on them. As for a cracked drum weld, this would be a defective part. Make sure to call LG customer service to have the issue documented so that there will be a history. This way, even when your unit goes out of warranty they will have records of the service and the repairs should still be covered for sometime.

LG Dishwasher Model LDF6810ST Dishwasher won't turn on


your model probably has a coating of a black tar-like substance on the inside of the inner door, which, by design, reduces noise. However, LG failed to notice the corrosive properties of the black tar-like layer. Your wiring harness is probably corroded by the soundproofing, and you will need a new inner door, wiring harness, and circuit board. LG extended my parts warranty because they know it's their fault, Call them at 1-800-243-0000. They will recommend an LG warranty repair certified technician in your area to come out and confirm this. They probably won't extend the warranty until after the tech checks out ur unit. However, labor will be your responsibility.

Power; No Pic or Sound


Hi, If you had not moved it, I may rule the SMPS (power supply board) went bad.
The unit may have suffered excessive shock that it knocked loose a connecting cable or two inside the unit. Don't be a hero though by attempting to pry the unit open. LG generally has a two (2) year warranty and they're super on repair turn around time. Call it in and they'll fix it pronto.

call 877-543-8325 this is an LG Executive call center and they will fix this for free. I have a 50" plasma I bought january 2006 which is out of warranty by 5 months. They faxed me and the LG repair shop a 30 day warranty for my tv to cover the repair. Just tell them you heard a pop and in my case the picture is distorted. All they need is the model number and serial number and they should take care of it. No arguing needed.

ten flashes from the light is a problem that needs to be issolated by a tech the 1st board to check is the PA board,and all the boards require authorization from panasonic to replace. that is why a tech must do the repair. if the unit is under warranty they must honor the warranty. extended warranty must honor the agreement you signed or purchased. there are a total of 6 boards that can cause the 10 flashes and can be costly to repair that is why I say when ever buying these types of sets get the extended warranty. these sets are no the sets of old they are not componet level repaired but board level repaired.

Z50PX2D 50" - I heard a loud pop and now only a washed out black and white picture


it is wonderful that lg is replacing the boards, but unfortunately, I don't think that they will provide this service forever. So if anyone reads this after being denied by LG, visit tristatemodule.com and you will be able to purchase any of the circuits in the set for cheaper than you will be able to from LG. I work for Tri State Module as a technician specializing in plasmas. All circuits come with a one year warranty, and I will personally repair all boards
