What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not cool The unit worked good for the first summer, then leaked water on the floor the second summer, I had to run caulking around the bottom where the front and rear panels are attached, water was leaking where they meet and the basin was not full. over all bad design. Also the unit stopped blowing cold air this summer even though the compressor still works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Spare Parts We have had two . The second we bought the extended warranty. Alas no water pump to be found so what good is the extended warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died after 2 years In line with all of the other reviews, the product died after 2 years. The compressor breaks down after 2 years and cannot blow cold air anymore. They only warranty service for one year. Would be appreciated if LG fixed all of the broken compressors as the machines are wasted being unused and too expensive to fix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable Air Conditioner Mod. LP1215GXR The current LP website states that they do not have this model but I certainly have one! It is a very nice unit does really well with cooling and is quite attractive. I use it as a booster for my central air system and when we have a lot of company.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Got 2 years out of it I purchased this unit about 3 years ago and it worked great for the first 2 years (summers). This year it stopped blowing cold air and gradually started blowing warmer and warmer air until it was basically blowing hot air. I would not waste my money on this unit again as it is the most expensive 2 years (summers) of cold air that I have paid for. It is too expensive to repair now. I will buy another brand to replace it. Has great feature though. Too bad that it does not work very long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Capable product I had this product for 5 years before I started having problems. During those 5 years this product did a very good job for it's intended purpose. It was able to cool down my 500 sq. ft. room with no problems. Features are nice/adequate but the remote could use a light feature for night time operation. The noise level is rated at 54 dbl. which is tolerable for operation. Developed a leak of some kind after 5 years of use, had it recharged but could not find the leak, however the compressor itself is still working. I would recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from lasted 2 summers. The LG a/c did not blow cold air when we tried to use it the third year. Purchased @ home depot. (We live in Oregon and it's only too hot here for about a solid week plus a couple days spread out here and there.) I've looked last year or the year before for cost to repair and it was so expensive. This year, I came on this site to see if I could find repair parts to do it myself. This a/c is such a waste to throw away if I can repair it. I have a similar type a/c made by Maytag that I've had 12 years... still working. So I guess I expected the same from this LG.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked great until it died the third summer Like many others have said, the unit worked well until it just stopped working (no cool air, but the fan still blows) in its third year. Also, this summer, the water tank kept filling up and had to be emptied every couple of hours or so. Because the unit is so low, it is difficult to do this without spilling the water. I am disappointed that this unit didn't last at least 5-7 years.

How do i get the dehumidifier to work

Asked by: ptalabama
We appreciate your interest in this portable air conditioner. The ‘Dehumidifier’ is activated by pressing the MODE button until it is set to the DRY mode.

Do I need to pour water inside vent to cool off the air, the air that comes out of AC is hot?

Asked by: Ana Batres
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. The air coming out of the back, circular opening on this casing is expected to be hot, as this is the exhaust duct which is intended to be vented out of a window. The air coming from the front of the casing should be cool. It will not help to pour water into the unit.

How do I remove water so it will stop beeping?

Water in the top of unit

This unit is spitting water out when the fan is on high? Is there a drain from the top front to the drip pan that may be clogged? This is a unit from my Uncle, and cools beautifully, I just dont want water everywhere. Thank you,
Asked by: wellmiss
Worked great for 2 years then started spitting a lot of water, same unit with same problem, disassembled unit to completely cleaned all coils, did not fix problem. Draped a towel out 18" angled down in front of unit to catch water put drip pan under towel, collects 8 -10 gallons of water a day. Have 2nd unit that is still working OK after 3 years.

Just discovered lots of water on the floor around the unit but no water in the catch container

Have a terrible mess -- water on the carpet vast amount. There is no water in the little "catch" built in container -- what can be going on here? I have no video...
Asked by: MistyM
We regret to read that your LG 13,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner with Remote, Model # LP1311BXR caused such a mess and apologize for any inconveniences. Check the drain cap and the rubber plug for any signs of damage or that the rubber plug is securely plugged into the drain port. If the drain cap or rubber plug are damaged, they will need to be replaced...^IFV

Does it require venting to outside?

What is the sound/noise/dba rating for this unit?

The description mentions how quiet it is but the specs don't list a dba rating so I cannot compare it to other LG units that I am considering. How loud is this unit. Thanks
Asked by: Paterico
I have seen this unit listed at 53 dba on other sites, but mine seems much louder than that, more comparable to a loud dishwasher at probably 58-60 dba
