Common Problems with the LG Air Conditioner

#1 Air Conditioner Fan Won't Run

If the air conditioner is running, but the fan and fan motor aren't, then you know it's time to have the motor replaced. In fact, the motor should have been replaced long before it stopped functioning, so it is important to have the AC repaired immediately through a repair service.

LG air conditioners are exceptionally durable, but can still run into problems with the fan and fan motor after continuous use. If you let the air conditioner run nonstop, then it will wear down its fan much faster. Regular aircon maintenance should catch the worn motor and replace it before it completely stops working.

#2 Portable Air Conditioner has Low Cooling Performance

Portable air conditioners are made to be convenient. However, they are not as cooling as window types or mini split air conditioners. If your portable air conditioner is blowing cold air, but is not sufficiently cooling the room, the problem is with the size of your unit.

Consider adding another portable air conditioner in the room, or move your AC unit to a smaller space where it can properly function. This will help you optimize the cooling capacity of your LG air conditioners, and maintain a comfortable temperature setting within the room.

#3 Window Air Conditioner is Dripping Water

When a window air conditioner is dripping water, it is often due to poor installation. Improper installation would have the air conditioner tilting inwards instead of outwards, and the water collection tank will tend to drip water indoors instead of outdoors.

Reinstall your air conditioner. Have one of our experienced aircon technicians at Luce Aircon do the job for you, and you will have a guaranteed, properly-installed air conditioning unit that won't leak water all over your floors. You'll get that comfortable, cool feeling without the hassles of having to continuously drain the condensation!

#4 AC Unit Won't Power On

An air conditioner that won't power on rarely has an issue with its internal components, but would most likely have an electrical problem instead. Check the power supply of your AC unit. You may have a tripped breaker, in which case, you can simply flip the safety relay switch back into its original position.

However, if the problem is with your AC unit itself, troubleshooting this issue is not as simple. Your AC may have a failed capacitor or malfunctioning compressor, which will require extensive repairs that can be costly. Ask our technicians for the best prices in aircon repairs, and have your unit fixed properly!

How to Reset Your LG Air Conditioner

Reset Point: Power Cord

To reset your LG air conditioner, power off your AC unit, then unplug the power cord. Leave the unit unplugged for at least 15 seconds, then plug the unit back in. Press the power button to reset your unit, and your LG air conditioner should be up and running smoothly again. 

LG Air Conditioner Troubleshooting Guide

#1 Clean the Drain Pan

Besides cleaning the air filter of your unit, clean the drain pan as well. The drain pan is what catches the condensate dripping through your unit, and cleaning this will prevent bacteria and mold from forming, as well as prevent water leaking into your home.

A dirty air filter and drain pan should be cleaned at least once every two weeks. They can be dismantled from your AC unit, and washed with soap and water. Leave air filters and drain pans out to dry before placing it back inside your unit.

#2 Go for Professional Cleaning and Maintenance

Professional cleaning and maintenance will upkeep your unit, ensuring that your AC provides the comfortable, cool air instead of hot air. These services will also keep your air conditioner clean, and reinforce any weak points to prevent them from becoming problems later on.
