The Remote

Even with pointing the remote (with new batteries) directly at my brand new a/c unit (about 4 feet away), it doesn't always respond. It only beeps sometimes; I usually have to go over to the unit and manually change the fan speed and temperature and it takes several attempts to stop the auto swing at the angle I want.

Answer: 
It does appear to be a design flaw. The "Auto Swing," which can only be controlled by the remote, blocks the signal unless it's below the remote's line of site on the a/c unit, where the temp is displayed.

While the remote issue is a little annoying, I have never had such an efficient & quick to respond a/c unit! Apparently we had our first warm day in a while; I was wearing a couple layers and even my dog was wearing her sweater. It wasn't until we went out for a walk that I realized how hot it was!

No more being kept awake, losing sleep, or waking up too early because I'm hot!

Answer: 
I, too, have issues with the remote. It seems to me to be a design flaw. Always use the unit with the remote--don't change the settings independently, and you will have less issues. The remote will always need a direct line-of-sight to the unit to work, however.

How often does the tank fill with water? Are there units that never need to be emptied?

I only need to empty the tank if I run the unit on the "dry" setting. I have never had to empty it otherwise.

why Won't it stop spitting water?

We live in a basement. We had it on for 3 days.. and fine... All of a sudden spitting water like Noah had a boat! We tilted it, we connected a pipe to the bucket so it would drain into the sub pump. We've got the vent going into a channel that leads to the roof. We've done everything as far as I'm concerned... What do we do?

Answer: 
Mine does the same thing and it has nothing to do with excessive humidity like they keep posting. I live in dry southern California and experience this when the humidity is in the 20 percent range. I can't imagine living in southern Texas or Florida with this thing! Turning the fan on low is the only thing that seems to help. I've pulled the covers off and cleaned everything I could see, completely dried the water out of the evaporator styrofoam under the fan, emptied the water out of the lower area, and it starts doing it again in 10 minutes. As near as I can tell by examining this while I had it apart, there is a design flaw that doesn't allow for proper evaporator water drainage which causes it to suck through the fan and out the vent.

Answer: 
This seems to be a recurring problem with this unit. I bought one, it worked fine but then started spitting water all over the place and onto the bed after a few days. A lot of water! Your description of the water problem symptoms is spot on.

I took it back and got another unit.

I also put a dehumidifier unit in the room.

The new a/c has worked flawlessly since then. I don't know if the dehumidifier "is covering up" a flaw in the a/c or if the specific a/c unit I got originally just was damaged or otherwise flawed.

In any case - it shouldn't spit water and if it does take it back and get another unit because the one you have is broken.

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. If the unit is blowing moisture through the vents, then it would be caused either by forward tilting of the unit, or very high humidity. If the troubleshooting performed has not resolved the matter, then the unit will likely require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

Answer: 
cookie sheet with a very absorptive towel in it will work...you could use an electric pump, I suppose. It is seldom a problem for me. If I need to run the unit on "dry," then when the tank indicator comes on, I just set a towel behind the machine and open the drain.
