Questions & Answers

What is the purpose of venting to the out side? What comes out of the vent?

What is the purpose of venting to the out side? What comes out of the vent?
Asked by: Timothy
Hot air, just like the coils on the back of your refrigator or freezer!

Why is the electric cord so short.? Can I plug the a/c in a power strip?

The tube and plug are too short
Asked by: Gg
LG says so you don't trip over the cord - but they don't realize electrical outlets are more than 4' from the window where the unit is parked. Supposedly, per LG, if you use a power strip, you risk a fire because the on/off of the compressor causes the cord to heat up and that is a problem. I found an extension cord rated and built for appliances like this and used it without any issue. Really LG should just go back to the 6' cord to solve most people's problems with this topic.

Does it need to be vented outside

Asked by: Ken
Absolutely. Unless you run it in dehumidify mode which will then require you to manually discharge the water that will collect in the unit.

Does this unit have to be emptied of water?

Asked by: Mon
If you just run the air conditioning the auto recycling water feature does not necessarily require emptying. If you run the dehumidifier, the water needs to be continuously drained as it sucked out a lot of moisture of the ambient air

We upgraded the whole house A/C and replaced all the duct-work so the room still gets plenty of cool from the rest of the house but during the hottest months, it's still gets to warm. LG to the rescue! We purchased the unit and SHAZAM! It's quiet and cools down that room NOW! And it's not a huge presence in the room. We have in an out of the way corner where it quietly does its thing. Thanks LG for another great machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish it had an RF remote The a/c works great and I have never had to empty the tanks in over a year. It’s a little noisy but I use headphones so not too bad. The biggest problem I have is that the remote must be aimed directly at the front. Because of my room configuration, I’ve had to add extra exhaust hose in order to “point” the unit towards my chair. If the remote was RF instead of infrared, it would not be a problem. It’s quite annoying at times. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Compared to my old window unit, I do not think this unit is very loud at all. Still have to see how this unit will do for longevity. One big complaint I have is the poorly designed window kit. Specifically how the hose attaches to the window kit. It just goes in and slightly pushes to the left to "lock in". However, someone needs to talk to LG about their definition of "lock". The slightest bit of pressure on the hose in the opposite direction and the hose falls out of the window. It does not securely lock into the window kit. I have come home several times now to the hose laying in the house blowing hot air into the room it is trying to cool. I assume my cat bumped the hose (or rubbed up on it), but it doesn't take any pressure at all. You just have to move it 1/4 an inch and it comes unconnected from the window kit. If they actually designed this better and it actually locked into place then it could probably have 5 stars. But this is a big design flaw which could have an easy fix.

Portable air conditioner works well BUT too bulky with the large diameter exhaust hose to go out the window Hose is not long enough to reach unless the unit is next to the wall or on a tabletoo heavy for me to lift Exhaust hose HOT Try sleeping with that by your head so it reaches window

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cools great but cant use anymore because the whole assembly vent equipment cracked and broke. After only a few years i cant afford to replace venting package. It cost more than a new window unit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
