Question about LG Heat cool Window Air Conditioner
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 email@example.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.

Lowering the temperature setting doesn't change the temperature of the air coming out of the unit it just lets it run until the room temperature gets colder. Check the temp of the air coming out of the unit. If it isn't as cold as it used to be the charge could be low. First though you should make sure the filters are clean and the coils.You should also check the actual room temp. It's also possible the unit doesn't have enough capacity to keep up with the cooling load of the room.
