if a drain pipe is installed, does the unit still evaporate the condensed water?

i recently installed a drain pipe on my unit because after 1&1/2 years it started leaking a lot of water (no full light came on). it now produces a bucket of water every few hours. because i opened the plug and installed the line, does it stop evaporating the water like it usually does with plug in? i dont want to have to keep emptying the bucket and i cant get it high enough to put a drain line out the window. can i put the plug back in or will it overflow again? does it sound like my unit is defective? is the light broken too? thanks for any comments or suggestions!

Veneting to a clothes dryer vent?

This question is from 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner and Dehumidifier Function with Remote Control in Gray (67.2 Pint/Day)
Asked by
New York Metro Area

July 23, 2016
Hello. Can units like this one be vented through an unused clothes dryer vent?

I'm in a small studio apartment where there was previously a washer / dryer combo. The dryer vent travels through the wall, and under the floor about 15 feet to the outside. Vent has no blockages, etc.

Is this suitable for venting? Any concerns about moisture or outward air pressure through such a setup? Obviously, I'd need to seal the connection on my inside wall.

Thank you for your help.

What makes a dryer vent an unsuitable place to vent the LG 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner and Dehumidifier Function with Remote Control in Gray, Model # LP1214GXR through is that exhaust vent hose for the Portable Air Conditioner has a diameter of 5 inches, building codes require vent ducts to be 4 inches in diameter. But even if you could get the hose to fit into the dryer vent, that would in effect be akin to modifying the air conditioner's exhaust vent hose and the restriction would cause backpressure that would cause the unit to loose its' cooling capacity and cause the unit to overheat and would also void your warranty. Other issues such as lint buildup in the dryer vent and carbon monoxide would be an problem. The other problem would be that the air conditioner doesn't have enough power to blow the flaps of the dryer vent open to expel the hot air which would also cause the unit to give a poor cooling performance or overheat and burn itself out...^IFV Read Less

Answer: 
If you use the back drain, a small hose needs to be connected and run into a bucket, the unit needs to be running to discharge into the bucket. I used a 5 gal Home Depot bucket with a 1/2 inch holed drilled into side of bucket for hose, at the same height or lower than the drain coming out of the back of ac, then unit would blow excess water thru hose into bucket. Warning the bucket fills fast about 2/3 Read More

Warning the bucket fills fast about 2/3 s full on really hot humid days, so frequent emptying of this bucket is necessary. Hope this helps.

Two (2) main things that you need to check is for electric power and secondly check if the condensate tank is full. Have a voltage tester with sound indicator and check if there is power at the electrical outlet where your unit is connected to. If there is no power check for a tripped circuit breaker or check if your electric outlet is a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) that might need to be reset. Those GFCI outlets are normally found in kitchens, bathrooms or areas that might be exposed to water.
The condensate tank has a plug in the back of the unit that needs to be unplugged and allowed to drain into a collecting pan or a floor drain. Turn off the unit before you drain the condensate tank. That should reset the unit to normal cooling mode. Make sure that you select the proper temperature and mode setting for your comfort.

HI Maria, we regret to read that your LG 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner and Dehumidifier Function with Remote Control in Gray, Model # LP1214GXR has stopped blowing cold air. We would need more details to determine why it's not blowing cold air, but you can try doing some troubleshooting. If the unit runs cold at times but runs hot on other occasions, check to make sure that the unit is set to "Auto". You can also check your air filter, a dirty air filter can affect the unit's cooling performance. If you have had the air conditioner a while and have never had a maintenance service performed on it yet, you may need to have it checked. Dirty evaporator and condenser coils will also reducing its' cooling capacity. That maintenance needs to be done by an LG Authorized Service Center. Other causes like faulty parts or low refrigerant levels will require a repair service...^IFV Read Less

Answer: 
Make sure unit is in cool mode. Make sure unit has discharged all water, if no hose connected to the back, open plug and drain. Take back panel off and make sure condenser coil is clean, dust builds up quickly and plugs coil. If unit has been moved recently, let unit rest in upright position turned off for an hour or so. Make sure temp is set below room temp.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cool one i used it on my room after my AC break down and awaiting repair , it cooled reeally well , i slept great again , i wish its just quieter , and can be set to turn on and off at a certain time , overall im happy with my purchase , portable so its in my living room now , i can move it around! its a keeper , when my AC gets fixed il leave it my bedroom , set it at 65 F , while leaving the whole house 70-73 F , it will save me money in the long run ! Love it ☺️ June 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install and user friendly! Good quality operation and great value for the money invested! June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great! I use this in a sunroom that is 13 x 26, with eight single pane patio doors; four of these doors receive full sun for about four hours a day. I live in Georgia, and it's been in the 90's since I purchased it. Last year I would have to close this room off, and go to the living room after 2:00 in the afternoon it was so hot. It's not overly noisy, about the same as a box fan would be. I have it at one end of the room, and the tv and couches at another end; I can hear the tv fine. Installation was easy. I've only had it for a month, but so far am pleased. I am curious to see the difference in my power bill, and will try to remember to come back and update this. July 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by noisy and leaks I don't know if I have a lemon, but mine leaks and is extremely noisy when fan level is up. If the leaking is just due to mine (and yes, I emptied it daily and made sure the plug was secure and external knob tight), then I would say go for it. It does cool nicely, just don't have it in a room where there is a television or you want to have a conversation. I will also say the way to empty the water collected needs to be modernized. The machine is quite heavy and you have to literally turn it over to get all of the water out. I ended up going out and buying a traditional window air conditioner. July 8, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It's ok but... Hi, this air conditioner will cool down a large area, about 400 square feet. However, the plastic flexible exhaust pipe heats up so eventually what happens is the cool air produced by the unit begins to fight the hot air eminated from the exhaust tube. When you walk around the area to the side and back of the unit you will notice it's warm and muggy feeling after about an hour of use. If this is your only option to cool your place then go for it but a smaller window unit would have almost the same results and use less energy...I ended up wrapping the exhaust tube in a non fiberglass insulation wrap. It seems to help but the heat does penetrate through. I put it as close to the window as I could so that less plastic pipe exhaust vent is exposed and less heat would radiate from it.Thanks for reading. July 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Summer Heat After completing the remodel of a bonus room, we discovered that the house A/C just wasn't enough to keep the room comfortable. We purchased this, and it has been amazing. Not only does it cool the bonus room, but it drastically impacts the attached living room. I'm ridiculously inept at putting things together, but even I managed to have it up and going in about an hour. A great find to off-set the California heat. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very well-designed This is an excellent portable air conditioner. I've owned three other prior to this for a variety of environments (basement, 2nd floor, office) and this has been my favorite. I use it to cool the downstairs in my house: the living room, dining room, and kitchen, and it does well, especially when using the automatic swinging vent feature. Highly recommended; I will be sticking with LG from now on. July 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Runs for less than one minute Runs for less than one minute. Then it shuts off. More than likely it so that the compressor can cool down. Glad the compressor is staying cool. It's the only thing. Room is hot. Will return to Home Depot. Had this problem as soon as I got that unit July 25, 2016
