SERVICE MANUAL This parts etc. This room air conditioner was manufactured and assembled under a strict quality control system. The refrigerant is charged at the factory. Be sure to read the safety precautions prior to servicing the unit. 1.1 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS 1.
This feature extends the overall life of compressor by preventing the short-cycling of the air-conditioner. When the compressor restarts, LG PTAC is designed to give a minimum of three minutes to have a time of equalizing the refrigerant pressures for optimizing cycling.
The unit will activate the reverse cycle defrost When the outdoor coil temperature has remained at a cold temperature to form the ice on the coil.This ice will reduce airflow though the coil and will also reduce the efficiency of unit. The LG PTHP will employ an active reverse cycle defrost function to melt the ice off the outdoor coil for insuring room comfort conditions and savings from extended operation.
The damper is opened and outdoor air is drawn into the room. This will reduce the cooling or heating efficiency. CAUTION When the air conditioner has performed a cooling or heating operation and is turned off or set to the fan position, wait at least 3 minutes before resetting to the cooling operation.
1.4 ADDITIONAL CONTROLS • REMOVING THE FRONT GRILLE Additional controls are available after removing the front grille and option cover of control box. To remove the front grille, pull out the bottom of front grille and then lift up. To replace the front grille, place the tabs over the top of the unit and push the bottom of front grille until the clips snap into place.
• REMOTE/LOCAL CONTROL When remote/local switch #1 is on, it allow the unit to operate by the control of Remote Wall Thermostat. The unit control by knobs are not available. • ENERGY SAVER The energy saver switch #2 is on. This switch is set at continuous fan to provide continuous fan operation in cool or heat modes.
• This Room Air Conditioner (PTAC) discharges air from the top of the unit through reversible, 2-position discharge grille louvers. The unit is shipped from the factory with the discharge grille louvers at an angle of 40˚...

2.4 REFRIGERATION CYCLE CAUTION Discharge the refrigerant system using Freon Recovery System. If there is no valve to attach the recovery system, install one (such as a WATCO A-1) before venting the Freon . Leave the valve in place after servicing the system. 2.4.1 CONDENSER 1.
NOTES — Replacement of the refrigeration cycle. 1. When replacing the refrigeration cycle, be sure to discharge the refrigerant system using a Freon recovery System. If there is no valve to attach the recovery system, install one (such as a WATCO A-1) before venting the Freon .
Equipment needed: Vacuum pump, Charging cylinder, Manifold gauge, Brazing equipment. Pinch-off tool capable of making a vapor-proof seal, Leak detector, Tubing cutter, Hand Tools to remove components, Service valve. Figure 16A-Pulling Vacuum Figure 16B-Charging —16—...
You can install the new air conditioner according to these installation instructions to achieve the best performence. All wall sleeves used to mount the new air conditioner must be in good structural condition and have the rear grille that securely attaches to the sleeve or the flange of the sleeve to secure the new air conditioner.

3.2.3 UNIT INSTALLATION 1. Remove the shipping screw from the ventilation door. (See Fig. 17) 2. Remove the front gille by pulling it out at the bottom to release it, then lift it up along the unit top front. (See Fig. 18) 3.
3.3.2 ELECTRICAL SAFETY IMPORTANT GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS Air conditioner has a three-prong grounding plug on its power supply cord, which must be plugged into properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle for your protection against possible shock hazard. FUSE – Use a time-delay fuse or circuit breaker. Refer to the nameplate for proper power supply requirements.

5.3 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE In general, possible trouble is classified in two causes. The one is called Starting Failure which is caused from an electrical defect, and the other is Ineffective Air Conditioning caused by a defect in the refrigeration circuit and improper application. Unit is running but cooling is ineffective Check of cold air circulation for smooth flow.
Check of power source. Check of control switch setting. Only compressor fails to start. Drop of power voltage. Defect of compressor capacitor. Check capacitor. Replacement. Irregular motor resistance ( ) Irregular motor insulation ( ) Replacement of compressor (Motor damaged) Fails to Start Improper thermostat setting Loose terminal connection.
COMPLAINT Fan motor will not run. No power Power supply cord Rotary switch Wire disconnected or connection loose Capacitor (Discharge capacitor before testing.) Will not rotate Fan motor runs Revolves on overload. intermittently Fan motor noise. Grommets Turbo fan Loose set screw Worn bearings CAUSE Check voltage at outlet.
