Lg are notorious for this ok not knowing how skillful you are I will tell you what to look for but your not going to like it

First turn off all power to this unit
Disassemble the out door unit enough to get to the top of the compressor
It's a long black thing with wires coming out of the top
Then remove the cover to expose the compressor wiring
There you will find the wires burnt out
Reconnect the wires in the same position or it won't work
Take a picture of the wiring before hand
Replace the fittings on the terminals and it should start running
If it doesn't then you will need to test it in which case you will need a multi meter
Before you do this make sure that the power is off
Also if it is off short the wiring with a screw driver to remove residual voltage in the capacitor
Failure to do this May result in a bit of a shock
See how you go and get back to me

LG 1.5 ton dual inverter ac compressor did not cut off and again stare aftersome time

inverter compressor run all the time
it is internally controlled so that it only pumps the required amount of gas to keep the constant setting
so if you have a setting of 26 C and the ambient is 24 C the motor is running but the load on the compressor is reduced to zero== power savings
If on the other hand you have the setting on 18 C and the ambient temp is 35C then the compressor is under constant load and will run virtually all the time ==costly unit to run

Is the LED Inverter integrated to motherboard on LG LC320DXE

There really isn't an LED "inverter" on LED LCD TVs. The term inverter is referring to the module that provided power to the florescent tubes on the older type LCD TVs. LED TVs usually have the LED power source coming off the power supply board.

ARe the linear compressors in the Kenmore equivalent to the linear compressors in the LG refrigerators?

Hello David,
  • Yes, Kenmore Refrigerators use LG Compressors.
  • There are two types of controllers used in the linear compressor system.
- The "E"-inverter system is used with the FC75LANE compressor.
- The "A"-inverter system is used with the FC90LANA compressor.
  • The two types are not interchangeable because the FC75LANE uses an Inverter CVCF (Constant Voltage Constant Frequency)
and the FC90LANA an Inverter VVVF (Variable Voltage Variable Frequency)
Here is a link you may find helpful.
Good Luck,

I have got a problem with an lg inverter its a 24000btu/hr,the indoor is flashing six times and the outdoor unit is off,what can l do to make this unit run again?

Inverter compressor run current high. Check compressor windings all equal 1 to 4 Ohms, Check to earth 50 MOhm minimum, check run current. If it's high, or windings open circuit, replace compressor.

Inverter compressor run current high. Check compressor windings all equal 1 to 4 OhmsCheck to earth 50 MOhm minimum, check run current. If high, winding is weak. Solution: Replace compressor.

It sounds like your inverter is at fault. You will need an inverter tester ( most good service techs will have one ) to prove that the output to the compressor is correct. If the inverter is okay then it will be the compressor at fault with a location error or it is simply seized. A common fault that caused this was the eev remained closed (coil failure ) and caused the compressor to over heat.

Hello have a inverter LG Airconditioner and it keeps turning itself off and showing the letters C6? Any ideas

Error Code: C6 Problem: Inverter compressor run current high

- check [resistance of] compressor windings all equal 1 to 4 ohms

- check [resistance] to earth 50 Mohm minimum

- check run current

I'd also check the motor capacitor(s)

Probably best to explain/print out and give to authorised serviceman
