LG AC Error Codes Troubleshooting Guide.
How to Fix 01 Error in LG AC?
The meaning of the 01 error is the Indoor unit return air Thermistor is faulty. You can try to Unplug the Thermistor from the PCB & Check the resistance value for 20k ohms.
Alternatively, you can test the sensor while still connected to the PCB board. You have to measure the DC voltage across the resistor and check it for 5 volts DC.
How to Fix 02 Error in LG AC?
The meaning of the 02 error is that there is a problem with the Indoor unit coil inlet Thermistor. You can unplug the Thermistor from the indoor PCB and Check it for 20k ohms resistance.
You also can check the sensor while still connected to the PCB. Simply measure the DC voltage across the resistor and check it for 5 volts DC.
How to Fix 03 Error in LG AC?
The meaning of 03 error indicates a wiring error between the remote control system and the fan coil. This is most common in group control applications where more than 1 fan coil is connected to a single remote controller. Check first if you did the wiring correctly.
Now you can check the switch on the backside of the remote controller. Make sure it is set to Group or GR1 for group control. The Factory setting is Single or SG, after setting the switch reset the power for 2 minutes. If the problem is still the same, you can check the Voltage of the remote controller cable.
The Red cable is 12 Vdc
The Brown or Black cable is Ground or 0 Vdc
The Yellow is the signal (Comms.)
The voltage across the Brown/ Black cable and the Red should be 12 Vdc
Voltage from Yellow to Brown/Black should fluctuate between 8 – 12 Vdc.
How to Fix 04 Error in LG AC?
04 error code indicates that the fan coil’s float switch has risen. Without a drain pump On the fan coils, it indicates that the jumper (a blue plug with 30mm of blue wire) in terminal CN FLOAT is missing.
If the fan coil is running and the float rises, it will take 3 ½ minutes for the fault to show on the controller, this is to give the unit time to pump excess water away.
Once the float falls, (or the jumper is put back into the board) it will not be possible to clear the fault for 40 seconds. It is considered good practice to reset the power to remove this fault code.
How to Fix 05 Error in LG AC?
05 error code indicates a communication problem between the indoor and outdoor units. It appears approximately 5 minutes after powering up the system.
The communication between the units is a fluctuating DC voltage commonly called a serial signal. If there is a communication error fault CH05 will appear on the Wired Remote within 5 mins of powering up the system. It can be easily lost if the wiring is not done correctly.
How to Fix 06 Error in LG AC?
The meaning of the 06 error code is the problem with the Indoor unit coil outlet Sensor. You can unplug the sensor from the indoor PCB and Check its resistance for 20k ohms.
You also can test the sensor while it is still connected to the PCB to measure the DC voltage across the resistor and check it for 5 DC Volts.
How to Fix 07 Error in LG AC?
A CH07 error code will appear when the condenser is in heating and any slave is set on cool mode. Likewise, if the condenser is in cooling and any slave is set to heating a CH07 fault code will appear.
If the master is switched off the next longest running unit becomes the master. To clear the fault turn off the unit at the remote controller, turn it back on again and change the mode.
How to Fix 09 Error in LG AC?
If you facing a 09 error problem in your air conditioner, you can check for loose connections or dry joints where EEPROM connects on Main PCB. You need to repair it if possible, if you can not repair then you can replace the PCB.
How to Fix 10 Error Code in LG AC?
Appearing a 10 error code in the display can cause of a faulty indoor fan motor. You can check if the fan motor lock or faulty. Replace the fan motor. If the problem is still the same, change the PCB.
How to Fix 21 Error Code In LG AC?
The meaning of the 21 error code is overcurrent in the DC power circuit of an inverter ac unit. When the DC part of the circuit exceeds 14 Amps, 21 error codes will be displayed.
how to fix the 22 Error Code in LG AC?
When the compressor is over-current, the 22 error code will appear in the display. You can check the PCB using a multimeter, check all connectors for loose connections and check the main power circuit voltage.
