What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top unit I purchased my unit in 2013 and still just as cold as day one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ruggedly Built I've used this A/C unit for 2 summers and it works great. The best thing about it is it survived a 14 ft fall out of my window onto the ground! I was removing it from the window before winter set in.The cord got pulled out of the unit, a few radiator fins were bent and it had a few scratches, but after reattaching the cord it worked fine. I had to glue a few plastic pieces together on the side curtains. The compressor survived and still delivers ice cold air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! This air conditioner is such a great value! It was inexpensive, yet it is very attractive and cools the space very well. I love that it comes with a remote, too. I just can't say enough good things about LG products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cool The best feature I liked about this air conditioner was the remote control. I do wish the control would light up while pressing buttons at night. I do like the product and will continue to use LG products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Air Conditioner I am really enjoying my new AC unit from LG. It cools down my bedroom in 2 minutes & my bedroom is 200 sf. I love the remote because while working on my desk top computer I can just spin in my chair and change temps. I live in the Bronx in a Apt Building where it gets very hot because there is no way for cross ventilation & the sun just beets down on the black tar roof and makes it really hot. This AC unit solves the problem with ease & I'm as happy as U could be. The only negative is in the cooling stage it sounds a little loud or maybe its just me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet I work at night and have to sleep all day. This ac keeps me cool while I sleep but not too loud that it keeps me awake

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent unit, but....................... It is noisy and has a vibrating noise that is driving my neighbor nuts. The compressor also shuts down hard, making a clucking noise. I tried different things but all failed. I don't want to make a complaint yet, as I have only a month of need for it. I will contact LG over the winter and see what they will do about it. It does do a great job of cooling, which is why I bought it.

My unit rattles very loudly when the compressor turns on. It seems that the face of the unit just vibrates against itself. It constantly wakes me up through the night. How do I fix this problem?

Asked by: Josh Gibson
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this Air Conditioner. There are no portions of this device that should be rattling. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to troubleshoot this matter.

What does the dry and energy saver do?

Asked by: Xavier818
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. The DRY mode is designed to run the compressor to extract moisture from the air, but not to circulate the fan as much, so as to not actively cool the air. Some cooling will be the natural result of lower humidity, but the air conditioner will not be pursuing that goal. The ENERGY SAVER mode is designed to deactivate the circulating fan when the compressor stops running. Instead of running constantly, the fan will spin every 3 minutes to test the air temperature. If cooling is not required, the fan will stop and wait for another 3 minutes. If cooling is needed, then the compressor will kick in again and start the cooling process. The reduced use of the fan will be more energy efficient than constant operations.

My LG unit has worked fine for a couple years and than all of the sudden it is not draining even after flushing it. The water builds up you hear it gurgle and than it starts making a loud noise. When we remove the front you can see  the water 

Asked by: amy Gunnoe
The LG 6,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner with Remote, Model # LW6012ER when installed properly should have a tilt toward the back of 1/4" - 1/2". If the back of the unit isn't slightly lower than the front, the unit can leak condensed water from the front grille. The air conditioner is designed to operate with about 1/2" of water in the base pan. This water is picked up by the slinger fan which has an outer ring that runs in the water that collects in the base pan if it gets deep, and expels it through the condenser to help discharge the heat. That helps to improve the cooling efficiency. Check to make sure that the drain cap is not on and preventing any excess water from draining out. If the drain cap is off, check to make sure that the drain outlet is not clogged with dirt and debris that might have gotten into the unit and accumulated in there...^IFV
