What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What Was Needed! Have a split level house with central air- unfortunately the upstairs bedrooms are still just too warm at night. This unit not only makes them comfortable, but does it so quickly and effieciently

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Compressor Noise Level In August 2016, I bought the LW6016R 6K BTU AC - "Recommended" based on it being in the top recommended window unit reviews of Consumer Reports. Although the unit cools well and the price was reasonable, the LG's compressor is much louder than the new Fridgidaire 6K BTU window unit I bought for another bedroom this summer (2017). The LG disturbs my sleep at times and is too noisy for watching television without having to turn up the TV's volume. I am disappointed that Consumer Reports did not note this problem of the compressor noise in their review. I had an AC repairman come to my apartment to check out the units - he told me that LG's compressors are just louder than Fridgidaire’s and that there is absolutely nothing I can do to lessen that noise - it is normal for the LG AC units. Too bad I cannot return the air conditioner at this point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've had this unit for a few months prior to installing it. It hasn't been used much because it's being used in a second home. It seems to be cooling okay. I'm going to take a wait and see attitude do to my availability to frequent my vacation home. At the present it's cooling fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice controls Put this in my Master bedroom window May 6th. This replaced a Frigidaire 5000 BTU unit I gave away. The first thing I noticed was the air output had no up and down adjustment; only side to side. I turned it on, and was surprised at how noisy it was. Especially when the compressor turned on. My last unit, you couldn't even tell when the compressor kicked in, it was so quiet. When it got the room to the preset temperature, I discovered that the compressor kicks on every 4 minutes and runs for 30 seconds or so, then turns off. Waits 4 minutes then kicks in again. Wondered why it has to turn on so often all night, which is the only time it runs. The room is only about 200 sq. ft. and the outside temperatures have not even hit the mid summer highs yet. Also, when I turn it on using the remote, it always goes into energy saver mode, which is not where I use it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase Just installed and it was easy to do. About 50 pounds so you might need a helper. Although only 6,000BTUs, it does a good job in a 300 sq. ft. area. Pretty quiet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Compressor extremely loud I replaced a window unit that lasted 8 years. This one sounds like a lawnmower. When the compressor kick on I can hear it three rooms away. It is louder than my whole house window unit.

Does it run with water?

Asked by: espmanny
The LG 6000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW6016R, or any air conditioner, do not use water at all. Like Refrigerators and the air conditioner in your car, they all use refrigerant. The refrigerant used in this unit is R410A refrigerant...^IFV

How can I change the filter or a way to clean it ?

Asked by: Etipaz
Pull the inlet grille forward. Remove the air filter from the front grille by pulling the air filter up slightly. Wash the filter using lukewarm water below 104 degrees. Gently shake the excess water from the filter and replace.
