What People Are Saying

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product fits our needs We have purchased / had five (5) LG Portable Air Conditioners and have only had a major problem with one of them. The condenser sprung a leak and lost all the Freon and wouldn't heat or cool as it was supposed to do. This was a replacement for that one and is working well.

How do I remove water so it will stop beeping?

Asked by: LisaN
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. The alert for a full water tank should be demonstrated in the FL message on the display. There must be some other cause for the beep you have described. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot this matter.

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

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

LVN compressor type? Info requested please.

I wanted to know more what is LVN compressor? I was told it means LOW VIBRATION NOISE compressor but is this a new type of compressor then what is on other models? Other models have ROTARY listed as compressor type and this model has LVN. Does this compressor cool better or just a better type? I'm not interested in efficiency or anything like that, since my AC until only runs temporarily and only in summer months. Is LVN associated with LG only also? Thank you for checking my question.
Asked by: Dygme
The LVN compressor is a low noise, low vibration compressor that is made in China using inferior parts and materials. It is low noise due to the lead based bearings and seals that only last for 2 seasons until the unit seizes up. LVN should stand for "Low Valued Nuisance". It is associated with LG only, so you should consider buying a different brand as LG does not warranty this part beyond 1 Year (Parts & Labor).

Cools a 12 x 12 room great for 2 years until the freon escapes and you can't afford to fix it. Check out the other reviews about this same issue.

Does the air circulating fan on your Model LP1311BXR run continuously, after thermostat turns off compressor?

I have discovered that the air circulating fan on your model LP1013WNR runs continuously whenever the appliance is turned on (whether the compressor is on or off). This is not energy efficient. I am interested in purchasing a portable unit equipped with an air circulation fan that cycles with the compressor.
Asked by: Cheechako
I don't think it's designed to run experience has been it runs for a few minutes after the compressor cycles off to ensure the "cold air" still gets circulated for a few minutes, then cycles off until the compressor cycles back on. This is different then just having the fan mode on....
