window a/c, compressor not kicking on

I have an LG model #lwhd1500er window air conditioner that I purchased last summer for my condo. It worked great! At the end of the summer I stored it in my garage and re-installed it yesterday. The unit turns on and the fan works but I can't get the compressor to kick on. I have tired turning the power on and off. Unplugging the unit. Chaning modes from "cool" to "fan" and back to "cool". Any suggestions?

Thank you for the reply and I'm sorry but I'm a complete novice. What is a CCW, CW and Stat?

The unit has an electronic tempature control on it. So when inplugged I can't adjust the tempature. I have changed the temptaure on the unit all the way up (80) and all the way down (60) to try and get the compressor to kick on.

Lg ac unit

I am having the same issue with mine. I have an LG LWHD7000HR ac window unit and it works fine for 5 minutes. Then the compressor turns off and never comes back on unless I reset the unit. Please help. Thanks.
