What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Installed in a smalle toddler room and it doesnt cool at all. 2 of the wholes where the screws were supposed to go on top were sealed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cold even for me! Just got mine yesterday. My husband installed it while i was at work. Came home a couple hours later and walked into freezing cold. I love winter weather but my room literaly felt like a meat locker which ive worked in. Had to turn it on low and shut it off in the night! I like that it blows air from the top not the front. It cools much faster and not directly at me. It works amazingly so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LOUD! We bought this based on the reviews, but sadly it's too loud, to the point we wonder if ours is defective. We have it in our bedroom & it's too loud to watch TV or sleep with it on . Our daughter in the next room even complained she could hear it. We have a larger LG for our living room that is much quieter. The 5,000 btu model for our bedroom is useless. Very sad if this is the way it's supposed to sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to find right now, but worth the wait. EVERYONE was out of these lately - had to wait. Several stores said they could hardly keep the lower priced LGs in stock. Also, for the commenter that says it fills with water & leaks, if you look in the manual you will find that you probably didn't remove the black shipping plug in the DRAIN.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from minor problems the air conditioner fills with water quickly and then begins leaking

I can't find the water drain anywhere. Is there a specific place the water can drain from because I hear it when I start the a/c up?  I have no manual. 

Asked by: hotinoklahoma
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. The fan, in the outer portion of this cabinet, is designed to dip into and utilize some of the collected moisture. Many of these window air conditioners are designed to simply allow excess moisture to run over the bottom of the cabinet frame. No special drain port is required.

Where do the freon go up on my LG model serial number LW 5012

Asked by: Kirkbone
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. The coolant should not need to be recharged, as it is contained within the sealed system. This would only be required if there is a leak in the system, which would require service on the device. 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/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

where is the thermostate control located

Asked by: frankie00
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. The control for the thermostat is located on the primary control panel. The UP/DOWN arrows will control the desired temperature of the device. If this does not resolve the matter, then 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/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.
