LG portable air conditioner troubleshooting

ProblemPossible CausesSolutions
Air conditioner will not start• The air conditioner plug is not completely inserted in the electrical outlet.• Make sure electrical plug is plugged completely into a live, properly grounded outlet.
• The house fuse is blown or the circuit breaker has tripped.• Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. Make sure that there are no other appliances on the same circuit.
• Power failure.• If a power failure occurs, turn the power OFF. When power is restored, wait 3 minutes before restarting the air conditioner.
• The integrated circuit breaker in the plug has tripped.• Press the RESET button on the air conditioner plug.
If the reset button will not stay engaged, unplug the air conditioner and contact a qualified service technician.
• FL appears in the display.• The water collection tank is full. Drain the tank and reset your settings.
• Room temperature is less than the set temperature.• This is normal. The air conditioner automatically shuts off when the room equals or is less than the set temperature. Adjust the temperature setting, if needed.
Air conditioner does not cool properly• Airflow is restricted.• Make sure there is sufficient clearance around the air conditioner and that the air inlet and outlet are not blocked by furniture, curtains, etc.
• The air filter is dirty.• Clean the air filter at least every two weeks.
• The room is very hot, or not enough time allowed for cooling.• When first turned on, allow the air conditioner sufficient time to cool the room.
• Cold air is escaping.• Check for open furnace floor registers or cold air returns, or open windows or doors.
• Cooling coils have iced up.• In especially hot, humid weather and when the air conditioner is running frequently or for extended periods, ice can form on the cooling coils, blocking air flow. Set the controls to High Fan (F3) or High Cool (F3), and set to a warmer temperature.
Air conditioner runs too often or too long• Area to be cooled is too large for the air conditioner.• Consult your dealer for the air conditioner capacity necessary to cool the desired area.
• Doors or windows are open.• Make sure doors and windows are closed.
