What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too complex I am a simple female who doesn't ask for much. I went through hurricane Irma, lost power for weeks and when it came back, my AC broke. I wanted a simple AC and this was too much effort after all I had and still am going through. The instructions were too much for the cost of the unit after how much I already spent on the hurricane. I wish this was less complicated in comparison to the rest of my life. Please make something simpler.. I think I put it in wrong, but I don't care at this point. It was the only one left in store within 15 miles the salesperson was awesomely empathetic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am a single woman and was able to install by myself. My big unit went out so put this window unit in my 29 foot travel trailer (my home) seems to be just what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS GREAT I purchased this product almost a month ago and it has been working great so far. The motor is very quite and it is not a nuisance when trying to go to sleep/ It gets my room pretty cold within a couple of minutes like a meat locker enabling me to get a good night's sleep in these hot and humid summer weather. I am glad I chose LG over other brands for sale.

Can this unit be installed permanently in a wall or only in a window ,(obviously with correct wall stud reinforcement etc) If not can u recommend a suitable model

Asked by: Gary dub
The LG 6,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW6017R is a WINDOW Air Conditioner and as such, requires a standard single-hung or double-hung window for proper installation. Non-window installation, including using a wall sleeve, holes in walls or any other type of installation is not recommended.

How do i clean filter properly and how do i get the notification red light to turn off??

Asked by: Malorie0216
The air filter can be removed from the front grille by lifting the air filter up. It is recommended to use lukewarm water to wash the air filter. Gently shake the excess water from the filter and replace. The indicator light can be turned of by pressing the TEMP UP and DOWN together on the control panel (cannot be done from the remote).

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?

Asked by: Smuself
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. This product is designed to have Styrofoam in certain areas of the cabinet, to be used as sound-dampening insulation. However, other Styrofoam is placed in the air ducts for shipping support. This part should be removed before operations. For additional information , please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
