When operated in the energy saving mode both the fan motor and the compressor motor may run continuously until the desired temperature is reached. Once the desired temperature is reached, both the compressor motor and the fan motor will shut off automatically. Then, periodically, the fan motor will run to measure the temperature in the room.

When operated in the energy saving mode both the fan motor and the compressor motor may run continuously until the desired temperature is reached. Once the desired temperature is reached, both the compressor motor and the fan motor will shut off automatically. Then, periodically, the fan motor will run to measure the temperature in the room. When the fan motor runs measuring room temperature, it may not shut off and the compressor motor may turn on to cool the room. Sometimes after the fan motor shuts off when measuring the room temperature, both the compressor and the fan motor will start shortly thereafter due to the unit sensing an increase in room temperature. The compressor motor should not run without the fan motor running as damage could occur to the compressor without air flowing over the cooling coils. If your unit is malfunctioning, the electronic control module may have failed. If the unit is out of a warranty, using other functioning modes is an option. Due to so many devices in the home today being controlled by sensitive internal electronic circuits, I always protect my appliances and electronic equipment with a surge protected outlet, or an external surge protector at the outlet to help protect and extend the life of sensitive electronic parts.

Answer: 
LG does not offer a "thru-the-wall" vent kit to the best of my knowledge. However, some owners have vented thru the wall by using suitable wall or roof vents closely matching the hose diameter. Most owners would be reluctant to cut a hole in their wall to vent a portable unit that may only be used seasonably.

Hi James. Thank you for your interest in the LG 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner and Dehumidifier Function with Remote Control in Gray, Model # LP1214GXR. Regardless of whether the unit has an intake hose in addition to the exhaust hose or just a single exhaust hose, both types of unit use the same principles to cool the evaporator coils and condenser coils. IF you take a closer look at the images of this unit, you will notice louvers or vents in its casing towards the back of the unit. Those vents have to be kept clear which is why it is recommended that you allow at least 20 inches around the back and the sides of the unit for good airflow because the unit draws air from its surroundings through those vents...^IFV Read Less

Answer: 
This unit does not come with provisions for venting through a wall. The exhaust hose is approximately six-inches in diameter and is terminated in a four-inch by nine-inch plastic funnel. If venting though a wall, a suitable six-inch diameter wall vent could be installed through the wall and the hose removed from the attached hose termination funnel, the hose can then be attached by suitable means to the Read More
This unit does not come with provisions for venting through a wall. The exhaust hose is approximately six-inches in diameter and is terminated in a four-inch by nine-inch plastic funnel. If venting though a wall, a suitable six-inch diameter wall vent could be installed through the wall and the hose removed from the attached hose termination funnel, the hose can then be attached by suitable means to the cut-in wall vent. Something to take into consideration is that a portable unit, designed to be vented through a window, is not as efficient as a through-the-wall air conditioner. If having to cut the wall for a vent, a larger opening could also be cut for a through-the-wall unit. Reasonable care needs to be exercised when cutting into a wall to avoid electrical wiring, plumbing, gas lines, and structural bracing. Read Less

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 422 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Never did work right. I have had this unit for two years (spring of 2014). First year it cooled some but not great. It never did produce any condensate. Spring of 2015 the unit did not cool. I did purchase the service plan. Technician came out and had to order a new coil. I purchased a window unit while waiting for the repair. Unit was repaired and it did cool some. The unit still did not produce any condensate water. The storage tank has been bone dry since I purchased it. Spring 2016 unit will not cool. Called in for a repair. Not happy with this unit. I want Home Depot to replace it with a new unit. Service center says it has to break 4 times for same repair. I do not move the unit so there is no reason for it to develop a leak. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A lifesaver for hot weather Easy to install, and does an exceptional job cooling a small apartment. May 17, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Work for 1 year then died This unit worked great for 1 year and the moment the warranty was out, it started having problems where is stopped de-icing itself and a month after that stopped blowing cold. it was only $400 but would rather spend another $100 to have a longer lasting AC unit. March 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better Than the old Window Unit Much better than my old NOISY window unit. Using this portable a/c in my quilting studio which is about 20' x 14'. Others have said this LG is noisy but I do not agree. I added a foot long 1/2" hose to the drain outlet on the back so the water just runs into a 5 gal plastic bucket. I am very pleased with this purchase. It does what LG claims it will do. Oh! And now I have more light coming through the window with old window unit gone. August 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase I have seen a lot of negative reviews on installing the exhaust panel. With a little bit of creativity it can be done and done easily. I recently purchased new vinyl windows so did not want to drill into them. I ended up using wood dowels to hold everything in place. Easy peasy! Place a dowel to brace to thinner portion of the panel in the bottom of the window frame. 2 dowels to secure the top window pane in place and to secure and the bottom pane in place (which also creates and tight seal on the panel). June 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product!! Cooling off the living room already and it's only been running an hour! Noise level is equal to a window unit or hotel AC. Very easy to set up. 5 out of 5 family members give this product 5 stars. June 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Working Out Well For Me I don't have central A/C and I have one room that gets pummeled by the afternoon sun. It's a smallish room, about 10 x 13 ft. I have my computer and some other electronics in the room and it gets pretty warm at times. This unit was very easy to install and is keeping the room very cool, even on Low. It's light enough that I will be able to roll it into the bedroom when we hit the hottest part of summer and sleeping gets to be challenging. Some have said it's noisy but it's quieter than any window A/C units I've been exposed to. You have to expect that these portable (and window A/C) units aren't going to be whisper quiet. So far, I'm so happy with it that I might buy a second one for downstairs. Note: it draws a fair amount of power and the instructions suggest a dedicated AC outlet. I measured this unit at 11 amps using a "Watts Up" meter. Fortunately, I had a lightly loaded circuit that I could plug it into. March 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aesthetically and Functionally Enjoyable TL;DR: It's one of the most aesthetically pleasing portable air conditioners made of very high quality plastic rocking a digital remote, almost no setup, low maintenance, and doesn't sound like a jet turbine. Just make sure to measure your windows if they're on the tiny or gigantic side. I named mine FroJill. I move almost yearly to new rental houses, and I cannot sleep unless I'm in 60-74 degree weather. Unfortunately my office always ends up being a room in the house that’s never lower than 75-80 degrees unless it’s freezing outside. I finally made the decision about a month ago to buy a portable air conditioner after some mild searching (it was hot, I couldn't wait). If it matters to you, I live in Florida, very humid and hot or cold and clammy, but I am running this alongside a central AC so if the humidity was going to be a problem I won’t notice it. The packaging is extremely straightforward. Once you sever the straps on the box the entire top just slides off and the machine is resting on about 5 inches of dense foam. After you lift it onto the ground, hopefully without hurting your back in your sweltering house, it will roll on caster wheels without a problem, at least on hard wood. Batteries are included for the remote, if that’s going to make or break your purchase. I made the mistake of not measuring my window beforehand in my rush to live in a winter wonderland. My window is about 16 inches wide, just as wide as the piece that connects the tubing to the window. This piece is a few millimeters thick, but is certainly not flimsy or cheaply made. The catch is there are much thicker plastic pieces that slide onto the smaller one which your window will press down on holding the entire contraption in place. Since I did not have this the tubing is decently heavy and you can’t just lay the thing against your window and hope it doesn't fall out. I turned to the sponge-like pieces which is the insulation you’re meant to use surrounding these plastic pieces, and I didn’t feel like committing to removing their adhesive protection from what seemed like a doomed window and I did the only logical thing and duct taped the entire plastic framing to the window. This actually holds the tubing quite well, doesn't show signs of degrading very quickly, and will keep out unwanted Florida critters until I move again. The heat of the tubing has actually made the bottom tape, which doesn’t really hold it otherwise just insulate, lose its grip but that’s easily fixed with more duct tape. Don’t be like me and just measure your window. The machine itself is very aesthetically pleasing. It’s a shiny grey color no different than the picture and can hold its own in a beauty contest with other portable air conditioners. The remote is slick, partly plain grey, and a sparkly silver on the back. The remote is also digital, and holds almost all functionality of the buttons on the actual machine. The only problem with the remote is if you go up to the machine to change anything the remote will be unaware of this change. For instance, if you turned the machine from 73 down to 72 manually, the remote will still be on 73 and if you want it on 71 you will have to go down twice. Does this defeat the purpose of the remote being digital? Perhaps, but it’s not anywhere close to annoying. To make it better, the machine makes cute little chimes and beeps which are more melodic than I expected. The tubing is impossible to hide and will be the only distasteful part of the appliance. In terms of cooling capacity I use this machine in a 200 square foot room connected to a hallway and bathroom that is about 300 square feet in total space. If I leave all other doors shut these areas will cool, not perfectly, but enough. The room itself is cooled in minutes to a comfortable level but I have no doubt it can get really cold if you desired. The machine makes about the same noise level as a quiet swivel fan about 7 feet away from it on the lowest setting. It can get decently loud if you turned the fan all the way up to its 3rd setting if you really needed the room cooled down, but all portable air conditioners make noise and you can’t avoid it. I’m able to watch TV and sleep with it 2 feet away from me without a problem. It can gurgle and make other fridge-like sounds but nothing that doesn't sound like the power of science. I rambled quite a lot, and the only other thing I’d say is yes its worth it because it does its job and it’s not incredibly ugly like most of these appliances tend to be. I have not needed to empty it in my month of owning the machine and even though I had to duct tape the thing to my window it’s performing extremely well to the point where I’m noticing the machine less often than I would notice me sweating at my desk because my room is boiling me alive. The only con I can come up with unless I just didn't read the specs beforehand or know that these things make mild noise is that the LEDs on the front of the machine are bright enough to let you visibly see in a pitch black room and you can't turn them off. Unless you're staring at the machine as you sleep I don't see a huge problem with it though. May 3, 2015
