Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Adequately cools the 250sqft bedroom it's in. Fan seems a bit loud on the lowest setting, but not a deal breaker. The noise doesn't disturb my sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little AC has the power! I bought this unit over a month ago, and I love ❤️ it! It has enough power to cool my upstairs bedroom on the hottest days. I does a great job keeping the humidity down as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and Less Height Than Most This is the second one of these units I've purchased. They are quite quiet and, best of all, they fit in a window that won't open very high. 12"!

Where is the Drain Hole located on the unit? I can not find any pictures of the back of the unit...

Asked by: JawRaw
Unfortunately there aren't any pictures of the back of the LG 6,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW6017R, but page 18 of the owner's manual has a diagram that shows the location of the drain port under the fins in the bottom left corner of the unit if you are standing in front of the unit...^IFV

How do you set unit for auto so it won't just run day and night

Asked by: A town
Adjusting the temperature controls on the unit would be the best way to keep the unit from cooling unnecessarily. Set the unit to a desired temperature, and once the room reaches the set temperature, the unit will go into Energy Saver mode until additional cooling is needed.

Is this an energy star product and if not WHY everything should be an energy star product because the technology is there!

Asked by: SueZQT
The LG 6,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW6017R is not an Energy Star Qualified unit. On February 20, 2015, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized its revision to the ENERGY STAR room air conditioner specification and updated the criteria to establish efficiency requirements for room air conditioners. Under the new criteria, ENERGY STAR room air conditioners must use, on average, approximately 10% less energy than required by minimum efficiency standards effective in 2014. To earn the ENERGY STAR label, products must be certified by an EPA-recognized third party, based on testing in an EPA-recognized laboratory. In addition, manufacturers of the products must participate in verification testing programs run by recognized certification bodies...^IFV

This might be a dumb question but if I have a window unit could I just place it in the room without putting it in the window

Asked by: nette67
No ... in fact there was just a fatal fire in a home in Ludlow MA where 3 people died and it was implied an ac malfunctioned and was on floor of room. I would say not matter what the brand this is only for window placement.

Is there supposed to be styrofoam inside the unit as part of the design or is that packing that should be taken out?

However, other Styrofoam is placed in the air ducts for shipping support. This part should be removed before operations.

How deep does the inside sill need to be for this to fit? Also, I was a little unclear based on the instructions where the metal brackets are placed on inside sill. Cam some one provide clarification?

Asked by: Dawngwem
We appreciate your interest in this Window Air Conditioning unit. The weight of the front of the air conditioner cabinet is supported in the window track itself. The provided L Bracket is positioned OUTSIDE the window, to provide additional cabinet support. This is shown in the diagram on page 12 of the owner’s manual.
