You are trying to access the field value on button click using querySelector, but you cannot use name attribute to identify a particular lightning input field inside querySelector. You can make use of dataset attribute to do so.

Instead of name, change it to data-name in input markup definition.

    <div class="slds-col">
        <lightning-input type="number" data-name="temp"  label="Enter a Temperature" ></lightning-input>
    <div class="slds-col btnMargin">
        <lightning-button variant="brand" label="Check" title="Check" onclick={handleLusmSearch} class=""></lightning-button>

In JS side, You can access it like:-

    const temp = this.template.querySelector('lightning-input[data-name="temp"]').value;

If you want to get the field value on change of field value, you can make use of onchange handler. The sample code would be:-


<lightning-input name="numberField" type="number" onchange={handleChange} label="Enter a number"></lightning-input>
<lightning-input name="checkboxField" type="checkbox" onchange={handleChange} label="Basic option"></lightning-input>


        var value;
        if( === 'checkbox' || === 'checkbox-button' || === 'toggle'){
            value =;
            value =;
        if( === 'numberField'){
            this.numberFieldValue = value;
        }else if( === 'checkboxField'){
            this.checkBoxFieldValue = value;
