Answer: 
They don't recommend an extension cord. If you do get one, be sure to get the thickest one you can as this draws alot of current. A smaller gauge wire will overheat with this much current passing through it.

First of all, you are not supposed to use an extension cord so the disclaimer is, do so at your own risk. However, I had the same problem and read all the scary details about why you shouldn't do it and decided to do it anyway.
The wall my air conditioner had to sit at is solid block and the roof is flat with no attic space so my only other option would have been to have metal pipe running across the wall...not very pretty.
After a lot of research I settled on this combination. I installed a 3 foot 12 gauge cord with it's own circuit breaker at the wall plug (with nothing else plugged into it) and used a 6 ft 12 gauge cord between the 3 foot cord and the air conditioner and secured the plugs with electrical tape. It would probably be best to use one cord of the appropriate length rather than two but I read that the longer the cord the more voltage drop which can damage the AC. This was the shortest combination I could find. If an additional 3 feet would work then you only need the one with the circuit breaker. Of course all the normal cautions would apply here. Make sure the plugs are secure and fully inserted. Don't put the plugs under rugs and areas where they could be subjected to wear. Don't coil the plugs or wrap them around themselves, which is another reason for getting the shortest setup possible. I'm not sure but I don't believe HD carries the 3', 12 gauge cord anymore.
I haven't had any problems with the air conditioner and the plugs are all as cool as can be. I feel OK knowing that the on-board circuit breaker would kick off the plug if it overheated. For a little extra insurance and peace of mind, I installed a smoke alarm above the area.

Answer: 
Short Answer: Do not use an extension cord! (User Manual says so).
If you have to use one, remember that the unit operates at 1340 watts (roughly 12 or so Amps). Use a cord that can withstand more: say, 20 amp. This automatically takes you to 12 or 10 gauge shielded wire. Make sure it is properly grounded. If necessary have an electrician check the amperage of the time delay circuit breaker.

If you have to use one, remember that the unit operates at 1340 watts (roughly 12 or so Amps). Use a cord that can withstand more: say, 20 amp. This automatically takes you to 12 or 10 gauge shielded wire. Make sure it is properly grounded. If necessary have an electrician check the amperage of the time delay circuit breaker. Use the shortest cord possible. Of course, use an out door extension that has a plastic shield of 300V.
Hope this helps. As I mentioned before, manufacturer does not want you to use an extension cord. I do not know the warranty and legality of using one: my suggestion is safe from electrical point of view.

Answer: 
If one of my boys are around they lift it to the bathtub and drain it. It's too much lifting for me (+ I'm a bit lazy) so I just tip it forward, once it's unplugged of course, and remove the caps from the back where the drain is located. Then I use a bucket/cup combo to empty the tank. Usually only around a gallon or so. It doesn't take long.

In the back, way at the bottom, is the drainage port. It has a cap and a rubber plug. Once you remove the rubber plug, water will drain out! (about a quart or more, usually.). In order not to 'mess up' your living area, do the following: unplug the unit and the exhause hose. Roll the unit to a place and, if possible place an aluminum foil pan underneath (should hold about 2 quarts of water), and drain as mentioned before. Aluminum foil pan works best as a side can be squished to roll the unit over and then be 'unsquished'.
Alternatively, roll the unit to an outside stoop and drain away!. You can also attach a hose to the port, but you need a special hose from the hardware store.

We are having trouble with the hose where it connects to the a/c unit. It doesn't attach securely. Looks like we'll have to use ugly duct tape.

I had trouble but realized the ring of the hose spins and secures to the unit. If the hose is slipping out of the connector, try spinning the hose to get it in there tighter, like turning a lightbulb, to tighten it up.

Answer: 
As far as I can tell the exhaust hose should 'screw' counter clockwise via the corrugated/rigid tubing (best to try screwing it in while expanded) into the end attachment. The attachment should then have four tabs that when inserted into the machine; twisting counter clockwise is supposed to lock into place. I know my sticker was backwards on the connector giving some confusion.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 226 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice for our bonus room/upstairs We purchased our unit when our son moved back home when he graduated from college. We moved him in the upstairs bonus room. The room has vents for the downstairs central unit was he was freezing us out downstairs. so, we purchased this unit. It has been great for us. Please remember to clean the filter every 30 days, it cools better if you do. Because we didn't want to have it vent through a window, we live in a restricted subdivision, we vented it out a vent on the soffit of our house. A neighbor has this same unit that they use when they entertain in the garage. we have enjoyed it. thanks [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] August 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by not cool!! I got this one used for 2 summers . maybe 7 days/summer. not very hot in Canada.now try to use it.....not work! Sad!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] June 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LP1311BXR recent purchase Read the reviews but friends have had one for a year and said it cools and is quiet. I have a five year old GE that works great--needed another and thought I'd give it a try. Sad to read that LG didn't provide more customer support-hard to believe with Twitter being a text away but happy I bought it at Home Depot. Mahalo. August 3, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No good Its always saying water full, I get tired of draining the water after every 30 min. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] May 31, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice except of a couple of things The unit weighs around 65 pounds.. If you have a sliding window the hight of the window kit would come about 42 inches.. be ready to use plenty of foam and duct tape.. From my experience, none of these things are designed to fit the window perfectly.. you'll have to improvise a lot.. You can try and get an extension for your window kit if the 42" dont work for you.. LG claims that in the "cool" mode the unit throws the collected water back into the air through their drain evaporation technology.. Unfortunately thats not true.. My unit throws a "water full" alert every 2 - 3 hours in "Cool" mode and the unit automatically switches to fan mode after that.. LG admits "Dry" mode collects water and advices the user to be ready to drain every few hours.. Bottom line.. either mode, Your Unit collects water.. However i have found a work around(Which I'll discuss later in this review).. The unit is pretty powerful and cools a 350 Sq.ft. room in a couple of minutes.. I'm impressed.. Its relatively very silent.. Auto Swing feature cools the air uniformly top to bottom.. 3 sequential fan speeds.. 4 modes Cool; Dry;Fan and Energy Saver.. Your DRY mode dehumidifies your room.. It has a timer and a bright white LED display that shows only and only the required set temperature. Dont expect to see your current room temperature.. there is no such setting on this unit. Here is the work around I mentioned earlier on the drain tank and I have to say this has made my life much easier.. it might cost you 5 or 6 bucks.. Dont forget to checkout the pictures I have uploaded below.. Pictures should make more sense.. remove the drain plug and connect a 1/2 inch female elbow pipe (threaded on one end) which goes on to the drain outlet on the unit and connect the barbed end to a PVC tubing.. you can get both of these at home depot.. Look for Toro Funny Pipe 1/2 in. Female Elbow and Watts 3/8 in. O.D. x 1/4 in. I.D. x 20 ft. PVC Tubing make sure both the ends of Toro Funny pipe fit perfectly with your unit and PVC tube.. drain the water into a tumbler from an elevated position(Unless you want to drill holes to drain water outside).. This worked well for me.. I'm not worried about the collection tank getting full anymore.. This could have been a 5 starred review but now you know why a 4.. Well its actually a 3.5. May 6, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Compressor has 5 year warranty For those of you complaining that the compressor has died and that the warranty is only for one year. If you read the manual properly, it clearly states that they warrant the compressor for 5 years. Give LG a call September 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Still working, seems like a great unit We are moving into season 3 with this unit, and it is still working. The little oscillating flapper has since broken, but I would have expected this with as much use as it gets. I just prop it open and the cold air flows. We use this mostly in our air conditioned house, to super cool the bedroom at night (down to 60-62 degrees). We also had an occasion to use this when our heat pump broke in summer and it was able to keep the upstairs fairly cool while the smaller LG9000btu unit was keeping the downstairs fairly cool. These are life savers for sleeping in the summer, but have even used through the winters when the nights got warm a few times. February 15, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LG Blows Hot Air I see I'm not the only reviewer in June 2015 whose LG is blowing hot air only. Just like the others, we purchased this in 2013 (only two years ago), and now it will not cool at all. We turned this on during the first warm day in spring, and it runs, but only hot / room temperature air comes out. The filters are clean, and again this is only two years old. Service person said it's lost freon, but I think the compressor isn't even engaging. Oh by the way, before I realized this was a total LEMON, I bought a smaller LG portable unit at Home Depot, took it out and it wouldn't even turn on (totally broken). At least I was able to return that one same day thanks to HD's return policy. But two years is totally unacceptable lifetime for a $488 air conditioner from a brand that I believed to be as credible as LG. So, not only will I never ever ever buy another LG air conditioner, but I was thinking of buying an LG G4 phone, and that's not happening now either. Goodbye, LG. I was a too short 2 years.
