Try sutting off the power to both units. This may reset the unit. Check out the service manual at LG website Go to their support page and put the model number in. Remove and replace the batteries in the remote. If there is a communication error, the inside unit will display 3 flashes. If all else fails, call LG at 1-800-243-0000. Good Luck!

SOURCE: ruud UAKB-018JAZ outside condensing unit will not run

Trace the wires (small cable) going to the out door unit. This is your 24v control circuit. when it enters the outdoor unit it ties to wires routing through the inside of the unit trace these down. For AC units 1 usually goes directly to the "contactor" (the item you push in and the unit runs?) the other wire can also go to the other side of this same item. But I suspect it goes through other tings before it finally gets there.
Some items are the high and low pressure switches and a delay timer.
A red button sticking out where you can reset it is the high pressure switch and if it clicks and lets it come on you may have a dirty outdoor coil or a fan motor outdoor that is not operating all time.
A low pressure switch has no reset normally on AC or HP.
A delay timer will have 2 3 or 4 wires depending on the type of timer. 1 of these wires goes to the contactor (usually) and one of them feed this wire. remove the wire going to the contactor. now 1 at a time take the other timer wires and touch them to the wire just removed. if the times is bad the contactor will click when you touch one of them with the removed wire.

If its a heat pump you will have to make the contactor try to come on around the board. and this you will need some knowledge on which and what feeds your contactor. Here Id suggest a technician. If I had a way to see your setup and wiring I could talk you through this but its too hard to type and would take way too long.

SOURCE: I have a Goodman CK36-1a outside unit. It will not kick on.

If you have power to the unit and the contactor is pulling in ( low voltage side ) and neither compressor nor the fan comes on it could be 1 of 2 problems first check the wiring a mouse may have chewed through one of them, or 2nd your capactor is bad.

Inside fan does not blow on auto or fan only.outside ac will work if i push in the relay switch

So you have no 24 volts. Either float switch is tripped, transformer or fuse bad, or your tstat is bad. Turn power off to indoor unit. Open tstat and wire red green and yellow together. Turn power back on. Let me know...

My outside unit is working, but my inside unit makes noise and no air is coming out the vents. when i tuened the unit off a burst of cool air came from the air return vent.

You need to check the inside fan. Check the inside unit (where you change the filter), Open the panels and turn on the A/C Look for a panel switch located on the frame where you removed the panel and if there is a switch press it in. Listen for your fan to be turning, any scraping, scratching, means worn bearings, slow turning means bad relay, or capacitor. Hope this helps Fixya up.

I have a RUDD 90 Plus Performance Achiever units. But, my Outside unit for upstairs A/c doesn't turn on. But the downstair one is working fine. I went to main switch board panel and switched off and...

You will have to find the power source to your outside condensor unit(usually by the unit) and make sure you have power at the box and unit. My be contactor on outside unit or inside for low voltage(26 volts) on the main board. The contactor is the key as it will let you know if the inside unit is sending 26 volts to the contactor which pull in and activates the compressor/fan. If it sending the voltage but not engaging then it is the contactor, if it is not sending the voltage then it is a fuse or the main board. Hope this helps Tim

RUUD Central Air/Heat Pump

you may have lost your refrigerant and the unit is shut off on low pressure.

You can check the unit's charge by turning on the indoor fan and pushing the ourtdoor contactor down(the relay with heavy wires going in). With the unit runnig for a couple minuits does the large copper line coming into the outdoor unit from the indoor coil get cold to the touch?
If not you have lost your refrigerant

Air conditioning won't work. Thermostat says it's in 'recovery mode'

by the outside unit, you will have a shutoff. pull out the shutoff, and unscrew the cover. 2 cylinder like fuses are inside. It is likely that one or both are bad. When you turn on the AC and the outside fan does not turn on... this is likely this is the solution.

Outside unit come on for ac but inside won't come on for ac or heat

Turn Tsat to fan to see if inside unit will come on. If it does Tstat needs replaced. If not it is fan motor or fan relay. Possible cap. Do you here the fan relay come in. If it is a Good man unit it is time delay and you wont here it. Need to know your make of unit. Rusty

Fan motor comes on, however, when a/c is turned on, breaker pops

If the unit is working fine in heat mode and in fan only mode, you have a short in the wiring going to the ouside unit. If it were a fan relay, then everytime the fan came on the breaker would trip. But either way, there is a low voltage short taking place in the unit. If the compressor was bad, the indoor unit would run fine and would only blow the breakers to the ouside unit. I had a unit last summer that did the same exact thing. After I replaced the control wiring to the outside unit, everything worked like a charm. Good luck!

Ruud 11 Seer AC will not come on

ok, do the following test:

take the cover of the thermostat and if you have a voltmeter put one lead on r and the other on y

if you have 24 volts low voltage is o.k.

now jump the r and y together and go outside if compressor turns on and runs wala! bad thermostat

now jump r and g if fan comes on fan relay's good

now check against any wiring diagram to see if any time delay device is installed for compressor

and if the unit has a circuit board, well the part that controls cooling went bad.

but if you have a fan relay installed and the fan goes on its o.k

any other questions e-mail me @
