Question about LG BG8000ER Air Conditioner

1 Answer

AC not producing cool air

LG wall AC unit is not producing cool air, also it appears it may be freezing as well. I am not familiar with freon type a/c systems, but I do know that other types of ac systems have a 35 degree sensor that will shut the compressor off if it senses the temp is too low. Is there something similar on the home AC units?

Thanks,
Greg

If this is a newer system there will be a freeze sensor. It may be low on refrigerant. I would check the obvious things first. Are the filters and coils free of debris? Finally only set the temperature to your comfortable temp not lower as this can cause freezing too (generally not below 70 degrees)

My new LG mini split 24,000 BTU unit is Freezing up on the small tube side. Not cooling properly. I thought freezing up (low on freon) but wouldnt it be on the larger tube. Is it running the fluid...


The larger tube is the return tube for the hot freon gas from the evaporator. The small tube is the cold freon after is has gone through the condenser where gas is condensed to a liquid when the heat is removed. So I would say your system is low on freon.

My Amanda wall unit keeps freezing up. Cleaned filter and coils, please advise. Thanks, Gilbert


If a AC unit starts to freeze up, then that is a sure sign that it is low on freon. A wall unit is harder to add freon to since those units generally do not have Shrader valves to purge or add freon. It is sort of like your refridgerator in that the freon is sealed in the factory and to add , a technician has to cut the evaporator tube and add a valve, then add freon, pinch the tube off and seal it once the correct pressure is adjusted.

I would say that somehow your unit has developed a leak, and will get worse.

Ice is forming on coil fins


Either your coil is dirty or filter is dirty. Worst case your low on freon which would make a coil freeze.But freon doesn't evaporate if your low there must be a slow leak.

After 4-5 hrs of running it ice particals drop out of AC and fall out.


MAKE SURE THE FILTER IS CLEAN AND COLD COIL IS CLEAN . JUST REMEMBER 70 OUT SIDE AND 70 OR LOWER INSIDE AND YOU HAVE A ICE CONDITION. 75 INSIDE AND 75 OR HIGHER OUTSIDE KEEPS UNIT FROM ICING UP. IF ITS LOW ON FREON IT WILL ALSO ICE UP. MOST OF THE TIME THEY DONT LEAK FREON BECAUSE THEY ARE SEALED SYSTEMS

What is the function of dry mode in ac, when to use dry mode, and when to use cool mode and what about heat mode.


Dry Mode in AC is to dehumidify the room the fan cycles on and off and the indoor unit temperature drops below freezing which causes condensate to collect on the coil and as a result the humidity level of the indoor air is reduced

Whirlpool Heat and Air Window Unit ACE184XRO- freezing up


This is only low freon. If the bottom coils freezes and frost over, you don't have enough freon to travel as liquid back to the compressor and boils right there and past this only cool gas .I'll advise you to get this fixed before you loose a compressor due to locking up by not cooling the compressor properly. Get in touch with an Ac man. this should only cost around $100:00

My ac unit


air conditioners freeze up for one of 2 reasons, #1 restricted air flow, is the filter, /orthe evaporator (cool) coil clean?
#2 it is low on freon, causing the coils to be colder than they should be.
