My LG model LW8012ER is professionally installed on high floor in apartment building BUT when we have heavy rains & winds the unit leaks from the bottom onto window sill as if the rain comes through the top vents and out bottom seem. What can be done?

Asked by: WOL III
Proper installation of this air conditioner would have any water, whether from the rain or from its own produced condensation, running outward, toward the back of the air conditioner cabinet. The pathway for the water is blocked between the inside and outside portion of the cabinet. It would seem that there is a higher level of humidity being collected, and the cabinet being tilted forward, may be allowing additional moisture inside the room. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional information.

Do I clean the outside with water hose 

Asked by: begal
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. It is not recommended to spray the cabinet with a water hose. It is recommended to keep as much water out of this device as possible. This is part of the reason for the recommendation of an awning or cover over the cabinet.

Blinking red power light.  Unplugged unit, waited 3min and plugged back in.  Is the blinking red power light a concern?

Asked by: AJHS
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this air conditioner. Where is the location of this particular blinking light? If it is on the display/control panel, is there a notation next to it? It is recommended to check the air filter and clean it if necessary. If that does not resolve the matter, then please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.

Where can I find an installation guide for this product?  What is the maximum window width it can handle?

Asked by: Hot Guy
This room air conditioner is designed for installation in standard, double-hung windows with actual opening widths from 22” to 36”. The upper and lower sash must open sufficiently to allow a clear vertical opening of 13” from the bottom of the upper sash to the window stool. This information can be found on page 12 of the owner’s manual. A copy of this manual can be downloaded from our website at http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-LW8012ERJ.

Should the unit be on vent close or open

Asked by: Gina46
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner system. The VENT can be open or closed at your option. Keep in mind that humidity levels can increase in the room when humid air comes in through the vent.

I just bought an LG 8k btu air conditioner. It gets cold for a while then blows warm. Shouldn't it make an 10x12 room ice cold? Or do I need to replace it. Not even a week of having it.

Asked by: MeMe1980
The LG 8,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner with remote, Model # LW8012ER is designed to cool an estimated area of 340 square feet. Your room is only 120 square feet, the air conditioner is too large for the room. Buying an air conditioner that is too large does not provide better cooling. An oversized air conditioner is actually less effective — and wastes energy at the same time. Air conditioners remove both heat and humidity from the air. If the unit is too large, it will cool the room quickly, but only remove some of the humidity. This leaves the room with a damp, clammy feeling. A properly sized unit will remove humidity effectively as it cools...^IFV
