What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Portable Air conditioner Very quiet and cools down the room 18 x12 area very quickly. Nice looking and small to be very noticable. I would recommend a different locking system for the duct tube, Pull out to easy but with a little silver duct tape took care of the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A life saver Bought this in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. While it wasn't large enough to cool my house, it did effectively cool down my primary living space and more important took out the humidity quickly. Now that the storm is over, I'm going to move it to my bedroom and reduce my main house AC usage, focusing on using this at night time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sooo Cooool So its big, bulky, and takes up a bit of space in my tiny apartment. BUT, my roommate and I were dying in here without AC and this baby is wonderful. I am totally accepting of the space wasted. Its loud and big, but it does the job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great just a bit loud. Works great but a bit loud. Not terribly loud but enough to drown out noise which can be a good thing depending on how you sleep. I like the different functions it has for going to fan only and dry ac. Decent value. A very welcome product due to california heat waves. 4.5/5 for me (0.5 for the noise)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It!!! I bought this AC and absolutely love it! It works almost too good and has made this summer heat non existent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unit did not work out of the box. It blows out barely cool, humid air. I sweat in the middle of the night with the ac on. Too heavy to return by myself. (3story walk up). Ciustomer service told me to unplug and plug it back in. That did not work. It was a terrible summer with this ac. And now I feel stuck with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I bought this to replace a unit that failed and the part wasn't available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this little room air conditioner works great!! I just purchased this room air conditioner when my house A/C quit working after 31 years. I put it in my massage room to keep my clients cool and comfortable and this little unit did the job beautifully. After I get my A/C fixed, this LG room a/c will find a place in our garage to make it much more comfortable during our HOT Phoenix summers!

What is the starting wattage of this unit - I assume the rated wattage is while running - want to connect to portable generator

Asked by: GreggTBocaRaton
Hi GreggTBocaRaton. Your assumption is correct, the listed 1,040 Watts is the hourly energy consumption for the LG 8,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner, Model # LP0817WSR while running. The surge wattage is not listed in the product's manual nor in its specifications. The Locked Rotor Current, also called Locked Rotor Amps (LRA) is commonly found on the motor's nameplate and will be what yu can use to calculate the startup or surge wattage. Locked Rotor essentially means the motor is not turning. The current or amps, in this case, have to do with the amount of electrical energy required to start the motor. At the instant the motor is switched on, it is not turning, and draws the maximum current. As the motor starts to turn, the current goes down. This required energy is much greater than the Full Load Amps or Running Amps, which is the current drawn when the motor is running at normal speed under full load. Please contact our Support Center at (800) 243-0000 for assistance with this information...^IFV

How do I refill with water ?? I was moving and mover said he drained it now not kicking out cold air

Asked by: Sgills26
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. There is never cause to add water to this air conditioner. It should also not require checking the amount of water in the machine, as the water that has been extracted from the humidity in the air will be re-used by the machine to enhance efficiency of the cooling process. However, if the unit is not cooling properly, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for troubleshooting assistance.

My air conditioner air started to smell weird I emptied the water it wasn't full what maybe the reason . What do I need to do to take the smell away ? 

Asked by: Lucy12
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. It is possible that this scent could be originating from the air filter. If this is clean, and not the cause of the smell, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional troubleshooting.

I want to run this continuously while on vacation because we have pets. Question is, can I do that? If I set the timer to run from 8am for 12 hours turning off at 8pm. Will it automatically come back on at 8am and off 8pm daily going forward?

Asked by: miller78748
The Timer function on the LG 8,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner, Model # LP0817WSR can either be set to turn on when the air conditioner is off or set to turn off while the air conditioner is on. You can't set it to do both. You can set the delay time for when it will go off or set the delay time for when it will turn on...^IFV

What is the size of the hose that connects to the exhaust?

Asked by: Stevej70
Hi Stevej70. Please pardon us, but we are not clear on your inquiry about "What is the size of the hose that connects to the exhaust?" and need some clarification unless you are inquiring about the exhaust hose itself? The exhaust hose has a length of 5 feet and a diameter of 5 inches and the only thing attached to it at the end that locks it in the window vent panel is the oval shaped diffuser...^IFV

Bought mine from home depot and they realized someone layed it on it side and i had to wait 24hrs it up right before turning it on. How long do i really have to wait?

Asked by: Ashley1993
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. It is never recommended to have such a device laying on its side. However, if you have done so, it is recommended to stand the unit upright for at least 24-hours, to allow for full separation of the oil and coolant in the sealed tubing. Running the machine with these fluids mixed will cause damage to the machine.
