The refrig on my trane xl1400 unit is not getting cold...the fan runs and I do not see icing?


compressor is either not running or out of freon, need to verify if compressor is operating by removing access cover's and using an amp probe clamp, verify that the compressor is operating, if not check electrical connections and capacitor which is required to start and run the compressor. Capacitors have more common failure rate than any other component.

LG LP0910WNR portable Air Conditioner error code P2 and shut down


P2 is a water tray full error. I had error once, and it had me puzzled because I have a tube from the back, and unit elevated. It was producing water out the back, so it was clearly draining.
Called LG (very prompt service, no wait times at all).
The girl said that error was water tray, I still didn't believe her.
So I pulled unit from location, and tipped at a good angle.
Sure enough, less that a cup of water drained, and now it works fine.

I have a Chang Hong air conditioner CHA60GWT and only had it for a couple of months and it has a F9 sign flashing on the front of the unit? Is it broker? Will it be under manufacturer warranty still?


I personally have had very little experience with these units so I don't have any tech manuals. If you have your pwners manual there should be a trouble shooting guide and listing of what the error codes mean.
I would contact the place where you purchasced it and see what they will do as it should have at least a year warranty.
I'm sorry tosay that I did call a couple of friends about these units and they both said the same thing that they were poorly made and prone to early failure. Sorry to be of no more help.Good luck. Thank you

MY IDEAL LOGIC 30 HAS FAULT CODE L2 ALMOST EVERY DAY SINCE INSTALATION DEC 2010


is boiler still under warranty?
normal warranty lasts at least 2 years
if so get ideal to send one of their engineers out
L2 relates to flame failure
either boiler has failed to ignite
or
boiler has not detected flame once lit

several causes

failure to ignite
ignition electrode/spark generator

failure to detect lit flame
detection electrode/detection lead

blocked condensate pipe
or defective condensate syphonic trap

you really need an engineer to check these components

I have an LG split system air conditioner model number LSZ244VN-4 it is coming up with a fault code of CS after it has been running for approx 5 minutes


There is no CS code. Please read as C5.
Fault Code 05 and 53 (CH05 is displayed at indoor unit, 53 is displayed at outdoor unit)
This fault code indicates a communication error between the indoor and outdoor units; this is usually caused
by wiring errors or condensate pumps connected to the inter-connecting cable.
The communication between the units is a fluctuating DC voltage commonly called a serial signal, it can be
easily lost if the wiring is not done correctly. If there is a communication error fault CH05 will appear within 5
mins of powering up the system.
Testing
• Check Outdoor and Indoor Power Supply Voltages ( 230V ±10% ) and correct as necessary.
• Check for any mis-wiring or loose connections and correct as required.
• Check the resistance between communication line and GND. (Normal: Over 2M).
• If one Indoor unit operates normally Outdoor PCB is generally normal.
Turn on the power and start the indoor unit in cooling, set the temperature to 18ºC; the serial communication
signal will only be present for the first 3 mins of operation.
Set your meter to DC Volts, Test between terminals 5 (Red probe) and 2 or Earth (Black probe) of the outdoor
unit, you should see a fluctuating 0-72 Vdc.
If the Voltage is not present disconnect the terminal 5 cable, test the Voltage between this wire (Red probe)
and 2 or Earth (Black probe), you should see a steady voltage in the range of -0.1 to -10.0 Vdc. If No Voltage
is present either the cable or Indoor PCB must be faulty. This can be determined by checking the voltage
output on the Comms terminal of the Indoor unit, with the Comms wire disconnected. If No Voltage is present
the Indoor PCB must be faulty, if present, cable must be at fault.

Compressor valve failure


That is not correct. The system is not mis-matched. They just put a heavy condensor outside to get more air volume for your house. The failure of the valve is not to common of a failure but can and will fail. The problem with Palm Springs is the weather you get there, From very hot to very windy with sand storms to freezing rain and sometimes snow depending on where you are. What is the tech wanting to cahrge to replace the valve? Also this is something that should have been looked at closey and examined before the home was bought and that should have been known by the realator
