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.

Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this air conditioner. If the remote is not operating, then there may be a problem with the IR receiver. The unit may 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....

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

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

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.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this Portable Air Conditioner. This device should have a drain cap on the back of the cabinet, at the bottom of the unit. Place a pan or other container under this drain port to catch the moisture as it is released from the unit. Once empty, simply replace the cap and place the product back into operation.
