LG window unit: compressor keeps kicking off, filter is clean, item is new [3 months]

I have a 15,000 btu lg thru the window unit [115 volt] and it worked great for about two months. Now, the unit cools ...somewhat badly - for about 5 minutes, and then the compressor 'clicks' "OFF" for about ten minutes, then the cycle continues and repeats. I tried lowering the "CALL FOR" temperature ... all the way down to 60 degrees F, but that doesn't help.

The filter is clean, the unit is stable, I don't know what else to check.

Sincerely, Richard Roepnack rroepnack@yahoo.com

It sounds to me like the compressor is overheating and tripping on internal or external overloads. After the unit cools down again it will try to run for a little while. Then this cycle would start over. I would check the condenser coil for dirt and filth. This portion of the unit may be on the out and backside of the unit. You should at least be able to see light through the coil.

I believe the thermistor that you removed temporarily is used for a freeze situation. I do not believe that it is your problem. Good luck:)

SOURCE: LG ac M483CS not cooling

It is possible that the contactor points have carbon or dust deposits causing an intermittent condition or bad connection. Why not try replacing the contactor?

You do not say if it is outdoor or indoor fan which operates. However I presume all your filters are clean and the drainpipes are clear. The only other thing you could suspect is the thermostat or air flow sensor.

think yu must take your compressor to the specialist so that they can check if cycling valve is operating. or may be wiring problem to the valve.

Rinnai ex 38 flashing code 99. I took the vent apart and there is no blockage. Unit has only been installed one month.


If it is only one month old doesn't do anything but call for warranty serving. ANY attempt to repair this will void the warranty.

Cooloing is not coming down from room temperature


The unit needs service. Call a technician! You can:
Check your air filters
Clean outdoor coil by turning off all power at breakers and tstat, clean o.d. coil with water hose
Inspect indoor coil (if you can) for build up or debris
Other than that? May be low on freon. A service tech will cost $ BUT not having the unit service will cost more due to electrical consumption and excessive run times shortening the life of the system.

Electric Furnace stopped running


You have one of two problems. Either the capacitor for the motor has failed or the motor has failed. I would turn off the power to the unit and see if you can locate the capacitor and remove it. An ac supply or electrical supply house can match up the capacitor. This is relatively inexpensive. Otherwise you will need a new motor.

Water leaking out the front of inside unit


It may be tipped too far forward or the drain port is plugged and not allowing the condensation to drain properly.

My deLonghi dehumidifier no longer dehumidifies. The device appears to be functioning OK but is not taking a drop of moisture into the tank. Previously, it filled in about 48 hours.


Hi, Soorry for the delay in the respones but I was stuck in a factory job the last few days.
When this happens usuall either the compressor is not running or the unit is packed with dirt. Can you tell me if you hear the compressor kicking on? I will look up this model and cover all the bases for you. The sysytem is slow on resposnes right now but I will keep on top of this with you till se get it going. Alsocheck the tank for a pluggage in the drain tube.

A/c fan not working=thermostat is working(central a/c system)a/c


The fan on the outside unit is powered from it's 240 volt source. Check that the breaker for the outside unit is not tripped. Also, a contactor is inside the outer unit that starts the fan - it may be faulty.
