Not that I'm an A/C guy but sounds like the compressor motor is toast. It's building too much resistance and tripping the breaker...FYI make sure you unplug it...you don't want your house to burn down while you're sleeping or at work. good luck

Our window AC unit stopped suddenly. Completely dead. The outlet has power. It's a 220V unit. LG window AC LW2510ER Any advise what it could be? Does it shut down when it's 100F outside? Thanks...

No - the outside temperature will not shut the AC down.
You say the outlet has power? Does it have the needed 220 volts? Most of the time 220 volts is on one switch, (that operates both 110 volt legs of power at the same time). - but sometimes each leg is on a separate breaker and if "one leg" trips you will still have power at the outlet (110 volts) but you won't have the needed 220 volts. While this is not likely - it is possible - so I would want to test the outlet with a voltage tester and determine the voltage. You might try checking in your breaker box and seeing if another breaker (110volt) is tripped. The same thing applies if you are dealing with fuses instead of breakers - determine the voltage at the outlet - and if you don't have 220 and only have 110 then look for a blown fuse or as I said above - a breaker tripped.
If you do have 220 at the outlet and nothing is running - I would be looking for an inline fuse of some sort within in the unit. Many of the newer units have them and they are usually easy to spot and all you have to do is to unscrew the fuse holder and replace the blown fuse. Be sure to have the power off when handling fuses.
Note: Be aware that while breakers/fuses can trip and blow without a serious problem going on - they (blown fuses/tripped breakers) are usually a sign of something significantly wrong with the unit.
Good Luck!

No power to unit

Whether this is a window unit or a built-in unit, check the source of the power. Is there a circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker panel that has been tripped? If so, it's probably the one that serves the AC unit. Reset the breaker and see if it trips again, after you turn the AC unit ON. If it does, either that circuit is overloaded or there is an electrical short in the AC unit.

Hope his helps you troubleshoot the problem.

I don't know if it is the microwave that blowing the circuit, but that is what my brother said. It blows the circuit sometimes when they use it. Model# MS-104yc 1.5KW or maybe the combination of the air...

Are you referring to tripping the breaker? The microwave runs on 110 volts, and if you are referring to a central HVAC unit, it runs on 220. No way the one could blow the other, unless you are referring to a window unit. If it is tripping the breaker, you could start by replacing the breaker (can buy at Home Depot or Lowes), and if it still continues to trip the breaker, then it is more than likely the capacitor.

My LG window ac continues to shut down after 20 or 25 minutes

The button on the plug is a GFI. Ground fault interuppter. Like on your hair dryer. When the unit is running, or has just tripped out, feel the plug and the well receptical. If either feel warm or hot, do not continue to run the A/c unit. Get an electrician to check for a faulty/ worn/improperly wired outlet. The units tripping out for a reason.

AC tripping breaker.

Check its wiring connection. Could be loose connection, corrosion.Or the breaker is already retiring. If the breaker is fairly rated to the aircon unit. Also insect could be the culprit.
