Question about LG LP6000ER Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I have an LG GL6000ER window A/C unit. just got out of storage for the summer. plugged it in, turned on the fan, worked fine. When I kick on the A/C unit, however, a horrendous noise occurs. From what I can tell, in the part of the unit that sits outside the window, there is a large plastic fan blade. it seems that the fan blade is slightly off kilter and is hitting some part of the housing causing a very loud vibrating noise (not a tolerable level) I've uscrewed all of the screws hoping to pop open the plastic housing, but nothing seems to budge. Looking for help solving this issue.

Hi,
Often times, even after removing the screws, you will need to take a screw drivers or knife and then cut or pry open the cover....I often start at one point and then work away from there making sure that the cover comes loose as I go...

I think that what you will find is that the fan blade is actually breaking apart...the plastic gets old ad brittle and then it comes apart...

Finding that part for most window units is very difficult and sometimes impossible... they seem to make them as throw away units...not to be repaired...

You can try to search it and find it, but even if you think it is right, you may get it only to find that it is not the correct part... happened to me too many times...

Your best bet may be to just buy a new unit...but definitely try to repair first...

Window a/c thermistor or control/circuite board replacement?


Still could be the fan capacitor. You cannot visually inspect a capacitor. It needs to be tested with a dvm. Beware capacitors store quite a bit of juice and although they probably won't cause permanent damage....the do hurt like hell when the discharge into you. You could try with the unit running spinning the fan manually BE CAREFUL. If it starts then the cap is probably bad. If not motor could be bad even if it spins ok.

Bought this LG unit (LWHD7000HR) summer of 2010 and it worked fine - used very rarely. Did not use heat in winter either. Went to turn it on this summer and it does not cool. Fan operates but compressor...


Unplug the a/c and check the control panel of your a/c. Unscrew the control panel to expose the wires and terminal lugs.Check for lose wires or terminal lugs or defects from the compressor capacitor. If all are OK try adjusting the thermostat switch to make the contacts work. If the capacitor is damage replace it and replace any damage terminal lug. If the compressor still does not work, check the overload and the compressor resistance. If overload is open, replace it and check compressor amperage. If the compressor amperage is high, you have to replace the compressor, vacuum, and recharge freon.

I think, your compressor gets over heated due to condenser block-clean it. Less rpm fan speed. -Replace capacitor. 3.Check compressor running capacitor. If weak replace it. Helpful?

Fan blows fine not blowing cool air acts like it is kicking on then just kicks in and out what could be the problem


Normally this is a sign of a bad compressor or a bad start capacitor. The capacitor you could do yourself if its the compressor buy a new unit. sorry

OUTSIDE UNIT OPERATES BUT FAN DOESN'T TURN AND UNIT DOESN'T COOL.


the motor could just be locked in place from sitting...take a stick or something and try to see if it spins be sure of rotation! you can also give it a little nudge while it is on and it will take off! if this happens then you have a bad start compacitor but no there are no fuses that only protect the motor!
