Question about LG Heating & Cooling
You should replaced your defrost board .
Posted on May 26, 2017
Not sure the specs of 134. But, at 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit your heat pump is not going to be working very efficiently. Now, the ice on the coil is another story. Possibly your defrost is not working BUT, you don't have backup heat anyways. Yes, you should have a low pressure error code, I don't think it's a refrigerant issue.

Have you checked the freon level in this unit? If you are low or there is a leak it could be the problem. Hope this helps.

Sounds like you have dirty condenser coils. Remove the upper shroud and check the condenser for clean. Take a water hose and gently spray out the coils paying special attention not to bend the coils over with too much pressure. This will allow more air movement through the coils and give you better cooling efficiency.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: Compressor ?
Sounds like you are over heating the compressor, try cleaning the out door unit coil. Take a hose and blow water through it, be carefull not to bend the fins.

There should be a condensation line connected to the flue running into a pump or floor drain.or possibly a internal heater to disapate it.
Beacause the heater reuses the gas there is alot of moisture in natural gas,thay needs to be drained from the flue.
Sounds like this condensate line is either clogged or frozen or both.Yes your going to need to thaw the flue out.Before you do this turn off all gas and electric to the heater,we do not want it to start.
A hair dryer may do the trick,to help thaw the ice off.If you can locate the drain line for the flue and thaw it out and clean it out.Check that all filters are clean and in place before starting up.
Also check outside that nothing is driping onto the flue from the roof or a tree.
I found a link with your owners manual.
Hope ive helped.

Testimonial: "GREAT ANSWER --- used a hair dryer on the outside flue (after it had been in sun a few hours (luckily flue is on south side of house) Started by turned gas/elec off, then chip'd most of ice off, then gave it high heat till water started drip'g out of flue (~2-3 mins), then went back inside and turned gas/elec back on and started heater --after repeating this process a few times (3?) heater stayed on and we had heat !!!! Sorry for not writing sooner.... but want to let you know that we had the 'opportunity' to reapply your solution twice more during last winter - worked great both times !! "

I would bet that the problem lies in what you said about the pad. It needs to be well-soaked for the evaporative effect of the unit to do its job.
You give no model, but if you disassemble the unit (only the top panel) at the water distribution tube and expose it you can see what's going on. Water flow will be minimal.
The tube disconnects from the water supply tube at one end.
Disconnect it and, carefully since it's plastic, clear debris out of the distributor.
If it's like mine, it will have a fair amount of scale built-up in it. Once clear, re-assemble and start the unit.
