I have a portable indoor airconditioner (LG LP1311BXR 13,000 BTU).
I bought it refurbished from Walmart 2 years ago. It worked beautifully until recently.
The fan, compressor seem to be working.
It cools ever so slightly, but not strongly (i.e. the air coming out is slightly cooler than room temperature.
It is vented fine, no blockage in the exhaust system.
What are the potential causes?
- I'm thinking it's low on refrigerant / freon. Can you think of anything else?
What are the possible solutions?
Call a repair-person, obviously. But I bought it for only $250. Is it worth it to call someone who's likely to charge me a lot of money to fix it?
Would it be possible to add refrigerant myself? Is this something I should take on? (I'm reasonably handy.)
