LG AC Error Codes and Troubleshooting




If there is a fault on any LG Universal unit, a two digit number will appear on the remote controllers led display. If the unit does not have a remote controller the fault will be displayed using the LED’s on the front of the indoor unit.

The “Units” digit of the fault code is shown by the power led which has the following symbol by it. This is usually Red, but on a few models it is Green.

The “Tens” digit will be displayed by one other led, usually the “Sleep” or “Filter” lamp.




Error Indicator:

  • The function provides self-diagnosis and displays an error code if there is any trouble.
  • Error codes are displayed on the Indoor unit’s Wired Remote as CH**, and/or Fascia Display. In addition, the code is indicated via LED’s on the outdoor unit control board.
  • If more than two troubles occur simultaneously, the lower number of error code is displayed first.
  • After an error occurs, if error is released, error LED is also released simultaneously.

LG Air Conditioning Universal Split Fault Codes

Fault code 01: Is a fault with the Indoor unit return air Thermistor

Fault code 02: Is a problem with the Indoor unit coil inlet Thermistor

Fault Code 03: Indicates a wiring error between the remote controller 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

Fault Code 04: Fault code CH04 indicates that the float switch of the fan coil has risen

Fault Code 05: These error codes indicate a communication fault between the indoor and outdoor units; it appears approximately 5 minutes after powering up the system

Fault code 06: Is a problem with the Indoor unit coil outlet Thermistor

Fault Code 07: On Multi split systems, the first unit switched on is the cool heat master, the master tells the condensing unit what to do. If the condenser is in heating and any slave is set to cooling a CH07 fault code will appear

Fault Code 09: Check for loose connections or dry joints where EEPROM connects on Main PCB, repair if possible, if not replace PCB

Fault Code 10: Indoor Fan Motor problem

Fault Code 21: This fault is caused by an over current in the inverters DC power circuit. If the DC part of the circuit exceeds 14 Amps fault code 21 will be displayed

Fault Code 22: This fault is caused by a Compressor over-current see code 21. Please see section on Inverter testing at the end

Fault Code 23: This fault indicates a fault in the DC part of the inverter circuit; it means that the Dc Voltage to the inverter is below 140 V Dc, it should be 370 V for single phase machines and 600 V dc for three phase machines.

Fault Code 25: This fault indicates a problem with the incoming power supply to the system.

Fault Code 26: This fault indicates a problem with the positioning system of the inverter compressor, which indicates a seized compressor.

Fault Code 27: This fault indicates a problem with the inverter module, see section on testing inverters. Also check reactor is connected to the PCB and check its resistance it should be well under 1 Ohm.

Fault Code 28: This fault indicates a problem in the DC part of the inverter circuit; it means that the DC Voltage to the inverter is too high.

Fault Code 29: Check and correct for any:

  1. Overload operation (Pipe restrictions / Restricted Airflow / EEV defect / Refrig. Overcharged)
  2. Compressor damage (Insulation damage / Motor damage)
  3. Input Voltage Low
  4. ODU Inverter PCB assembly damage

Fault Code 32: Indicates that the Inverter compressor discharge temperature is high (above 105ºC) this usually indicates the system has either a shortage of refrigerant or a blockage in the system.

Fault Code 33: Indicates that the fixed speed compressor discharge temperature is high (above 105ºC) this usually indicates the system has either a shortage of refrigerant or a blockage in the system.

Fault Code 39: Check and repair or replace as necessary:

  1. PCB defect / Wiring defect
  2. Different Micom Software Version
  3. ODU Inverter PCB assembly damage

Fault Code 40: This fault indicates a problem with the current drawn by the AC part of the inverter circuit.

Fault Code 41: This fault indicates an Inverter Compressor discharge Thermistor fault

Fault Code 44: Indicates a fault with the Outdoor unit air Thermistor





Fault Code 45: Indicates a problem with the condenser coil outlet Thermistor

Fault Code 46: Indicates a problem with the compressor suction Thermistor

Fault Code 47: Indicates an Inverter Compressor discharge Thermistor fault

Fault Code 48: This fault indicates that the compressor discharge sensor and the condenser air temperature sensors are both unplugged. Both these sensors are connected to a single connector on the outdoor unit PCB, plug it in and the fault will go away.

Fault Code 51: This indicates that the capacity of the indoor unit / units is too great for the condensing unit.

Fault Code 52: This fault code indicates a communication error between the Main and Sub micom (CPU’s) on the outdoor unit main PCB.

Fault Code 54: This fault normally indicates a lost phase or the phases are reversed on the power supply to 3 phase units.

Fault Code 60: Check the correct PCB assembly has been installed, check for dry joints, replace outdoor unit PCB if nothing is found.

Fault Code 61: Indicates the outdoor unit condenser coil temperature is high above 65ºC, this will usually be experienced in cooling mode and will indicate insufficient air being drawn over the coil.

Fault Code 62: Indicates the outdoor unit Inverter heat-sink thermistor has detected that the heat sink is overheating 85ºC.

Fault Code 65: Is a problem with the Inverter PCB heat sink thermistor for the heat sink on the outdoor unit PCB

Fault Code 67: This is a problem with the Outdoor Fan Motor, where rotation is not detected, and could be result of either Mechanical or Electrical failure.

Fault Code 73: Check and repair or replace as necessary:

  1. Overload operation (Pipe restrictions / Restricted Airflow / EEV defect / Refrig. Overcharged)
  2. Compressor damage (Insulation damage / Motor damage)
  3. Input Voltage abnormal
  4. Power supply wiring abnormal
  5. Inverter PCB assembly damage

Fault Code 105: This is due to a Communication error between the Main outdoor PCB and Fan PCB


LG AC Troubleshooting 

LG AC Troubleshooting

The air conditioner may be operating abnormally when:

Problem: Air conditioner does not start

Possible Causes:

  1. The air conditioner is unplugged.
  2. The fuse is blown/circuit breaker is tripped.
  3. Power failure.
  4. High voltage.

What To Do:

  1. Make sure the air conditioner plug is pushed completely into the outlet.
  2. Check the house fuse/circuit breaker box and replace the fuse or reset the breaker.
  3. If power failure occurs, turn the mode control to OFF. When power is restored, wait 3 minutes to restart the air conditioner to prevent tripping of the compressor overload.
  4. If the voltage is unusually very high or low the circuit Breaker will trip.

Problem: Air conditioner does not cool as it should

Possible Causes:

  1. Airflow is restricted.
  2. The air filter is dirty.
  3. The room may have been hot.
  4. Cold air is escaping.
  5. Check the temperature settings.
  6. There might be any heating source in the room.

What To Do:

  1. Make sure there are no curtains, blinds, or furniture blocking the front of the air conditioner.
  2. Clean the filter at least every 2 weeks. See the Maintenance and Service section.
  3. When the air conditioner is first turned on, you need to allow time for the room to cool down.
  4. Check for open furnace floor registers and cold air returns.
  5. Make sure they are correct.
  6. Check and remove such source or turn it off while using the air conditioner.

Call the service immediately in the following situations

  1. Anything abnormal such as burning smell, loud noise etc. happen. Stop the unit and turn the breaker off. Never try to repair by yourself or restart the system in such cases.
  2. Main power cord is too hot or damaged.
  3. Error code is generated by self diagnosis.
  4. Water leaks from indoor unit even if the humidity is low.
  5. Any switch, breaker (safety, earth) or fuse fails to work properly
