Rated 4 out of 5 by from real cool got this and it's real cool. only drawback is that the control panel is built into the front facing so it can't be washed completely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit for the price I needed this unit because my primary A/C went out in the middle of summer. The unit cooled most of my home down to a manageable temperature.

is this unit made for permanent installation in a window or is it considered some thing that can be removed at the end of the cooling season

Asked by: stano
Keeping the ENERGY STAR® LG 15000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW1516ER permanently installed in your window or removing it seasonally is left to your discretion. If you prefer leaving it in permanently, you may want to get a cover for it to prevent dust and debris from getting into the unit...^IFV

Why does LG not sell a cover fro their A/C units? This would be a good marketing tool to sell an insulated cover to protect the units from winter weather where owners do not use the a/c all year long,, as in the NW untied states, MT OR could mfg

Asked by: Kim Barnes
There are a wide variety of covers available for the LG 15000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW1516ER and A/C units from other manufacturers that you will find at Home Improvement retailers such as the Home Depot, Lowe's, etc., ^IFV

When I turn unit off, compressor still is on but fan is off, is this normal?

Asked by: Dave C
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. When the power is deactivated on this model, the fan and compressor should both become inactive. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot this matter.

Why is the light red when I have it on energy saver instead of green?  It used to have a green light next to it but it is now showing red. 

Asked by: Billy B
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this air conditioner. This red indicator light is typically related to the CLEAN FILTER alert. The ‘Clean Filter’ LED will light up to notify you that your filter needs to be cleaned. After cleaning the filter, press “Temp ^” and “Temp v” buttons together to turn off ‘Clean Filter’ light. The filter reset must be done from unit control panel. The buttons on the remote control will not perform in this fashion.

The "clean filter"light is on and won't go out even though the filter is clean. What should I do?

Asked by: ChrisC98052
Press temp control, to raise and lower temp, at the same time to clear

Is unit suppose to weep/drip water?  It is not it is making gurgling sounds. 

Asked by: Mouse7
The dripping of water from the back of the cabinet will generally occur when the humidity level is elevated. If the unit is currently blowing cold air, then whether or not water drains should be irrelevant.
