Tripping a 20 amp breaker

This question is from 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner and Dehumidifier Function with Remote Control in Gray (74.4 Pints/Day)
Asked by

July 7, 2013
I bought this unit expecting it to work as it is rated @ max 11 amps. We have 3 bedrooms on same outlet circuit. Needless to say this unit plus anything else turned on, such as computers and a second 7000 BTU LG trips the breaker. At first I thought it was a marginal breaker and replaced it with a new 20 amp breaker. Alas, no luck. Still trips the breaker. Rewiring the home is not a solution. Any other suggestions?

Answer: 
Although the unit is rated at 11.5A that doesn't mean it will max at 11, that's the running amperage. Compressors have a startup power consumption that can draw more power temporarily when they kick on. With your described situation, the only options are to get a smaller unit or to install a dedicated minimum 15A outlet somewhere.

Answer: 
Sounds like you're just overloading the breaker. The 11 amps, plus the 7-8 for the 7000 BTU plus an amp or 3 for computers lights, etc., tripped. Could you use a heavy gauge extension cord (to limit power drop) just long enough to run the AC to another room/breaker? Not a professional, just a DIY guy like you. Just an idea.

I had this problem -- I found someone had figured out a solution somewhere online:
there's a small drainage hole beneath the top set of copper coils, in the plastic base, in a small trough at the center of the coil bottom.

You need to unscrew and remove the outer plastic housing of the front of the AC, and may need to unscrew 4 screws to free the top set of coils, and lift it just enough to CLEAN the little drainage hole, and carefully DRILL it to make it slightly wider. BE CAREFUL not to drill down too far.
Did this over 2 years ago, and have had no water-spraying issues since. Read Less

There is a few things that could be happening; please make sure that the water level in the tank isn't full or getting full, a full tank could sometime feed back into the system which may cause the water to spit, but a chance of that happening is very low, because in most case the unit is design to shut off when the full tank light comes on. Another reason is that the compressor sweats when it is trying to cool a large room this happens when the unit is over worked which in most cases is not a bad thing this mean that it is trying to full a room with cold air and the air in the room my be leak out from another area. If the room is at it required temperature such as ( 72 degree) its not shutting off as it is design to do and also pushing out more cold air than it should.

You could build a higher stand, but be careful not to let the AC not roll off. You could build a tall enough cabinet for the AC and have a bucket underneath - drill a hole in cab.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 258 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by piece of junk! If you want to spend this kind of money for a unit that only works for 1 year then buy it. I have 2 of these units and they BOTH stopped working when I went to use them the 2nd summer. I only used them for 4 months and neither one will work at all! May 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Only works good the first year. After that throw it away. Do not buy this unit. It will work awesome the first year but that is it. moisture and condensation are part of air conditioner operation. However LG made no attempt to coat any metal parts or creating any ample drainage causing these parts to rust through allowing the refrigerant to leak out. once this happens you have a $400 boat anchor that is out of warranty and would cost more to repair than buy a new unit. There is no routine maintenance that will prevent this from happening. DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT May 12, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Great Disposable Unit ! I bought two units for our upstairs and they both worked great at first. One unit stopped cooling after 1 season and the other stopped after 2 seasons. LG was NO help. Their "technical" support simply said to buy another unit. The 410a refrigerant words at such a high pressure that the unit cannot be recharged when it leaks out. The compressor was coming on fine… just didn't have any freon. For the price of these units, they should be serviceable! At least the silly fan "swing" mechanism worked ! It was real good at blowing around warm air! Please save yourself some money and aggravation and move on to a different brand. June 12, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not for humid places It worked ok during the first year, but now it's started spitting water when it's run for more than 1hr! One of these reviews explains how to fix it but you have to take the entire unit apart down to a level I'm not comfortable with to do it. The standard drain procedure also doesn't drain the entire unit, so it's prone to mould. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] August 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Short Life I have had TWO of these in the last 5 years, never again. I don't have the high dollars to put out every two years or so. First one worked great for a summer, then about 3/4 of the next. Purchased a new one two years ago at the beginning of the summer, and it lasted 2 summers and here we are in July and it's spitting water, isn't cooling very well. I am very frustrated. I know its very hot right now, but I live in Colorado and our humidity isn't that high. My floor was wet when I got home after it ran for 3 hours.Bad product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lg portable ac Bought about 2 months ago, works well and cools good. Would buy again if needed [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] July 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works nicely! We have an A-frame and it has no regular windows. This LG air conditioner is vented out a sliding glass door. My clever husband took an 8 inch plank and cut it to the same height as the door. He used the vent panel as a guide to draw and cut a hole the same size needed to vent this unit to outside. He painted the plank brown to match the colors in the room, added some weather stripping to seal up any cracks, secured the door to keep the bugulars out, and wa-la! We are cool as a cucumber and looking pretty stylish. July 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Meets most of my Needs and Expectations I like the features, it works well and cools fast; what I don't like is the dehumidifier function, it dehumidifies very slow and it makes the room very cold specially when the climate is cold and humid. But everything else works very well., February 11, 2016
