Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected. I picked this air-conditioner because I needed it to fit a specific short window in the kitchen that was hard to fit. This is the most BTU that I could find. 8,000 BTU. It worked extremely well. Even when I was cooking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More power for your buck. Love this little unit. I am able to keep my bedroom so nice &cool for a good night sleep. I like the energy saver and found that it does just that. It keeps the strain off the central a/c. so my electric bill was less than before. Very quiet, nice looking ,easy to use and very good for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet efficient window air conditioner I have central air conditioning but I like my bedroom much cooler to sleep, and don't want to waste energy and money running the central AC that cool throughout the entire house at night, so I bought this unit to take care of that issue. It's quiet and cools my 14' x 20' bedroom sufficiently. I installed it myself. It comes with an energy saving kit to used cover the accordion side panels so that they are sealed much more efficiently. I use this AC every night and am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully Cool I purchased this AC about 2 months ago. At first I was apprehensive about increasing my monthly electric bill, but after running it every night through the month, I turn it off when I am away from home, my bill went up by only $30.00.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Than Expected! Bought this on-line for my work shop, needing a 8m btu a/c and none available locally. Greatly surprised with all the features--Timer, Digital temp control, and most surprising the low sound level--simply great !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good A/C The air conditioner keeps my space at the desired temperature. It took a while to get used to the 'sampling' process, but now I don't even realize it is happening. I do wish the manual was more specific about some features such as the timer and reset of the filter, etc.

How do I clean the filter when the red light is on

Asked by: Cotto
When the 'Clean Filter' LED on the ENERGY STAR® LG 8000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW8016ER comes on to notify you that the air filter needs to be cleaned, pull the front grill out towards you then pull the air filter up and out from behind the front grill. You can wash the filter in lukewarm water below 40˚C (104˚F). After cleaning the filter, you need to reset the Clean Filter' LED by pressing, "Temp ▲▼" simultaneously on the unit's control panel (not from the remote). The LED illuminates after 250 hours of operation and serves as a reminder to clean the Air Filter for a more efficient operation. It is recommended that you check the air filter at least twice a month to see if cleaning is necessary or more frequently depending on your air quality. Dirt and trapped particles in the filter can build up and restrict air flow to the unit which can reduce the unit's cooling capacity and cause frost to accumulate on the evaporator...^IFV

I can see daylight shining inside the inner compartment which indicates that that the air-conditioner is not airtight with regard to outside air. Is this normal? What will happen when it rains? Will water fall through the top vents and get inside?

Asked by: Rojo2017
We do regret the issue you are having with the air conditioner. It is unclear as to where the daylight is coming in and if that can lead to issues with rain water in the future. For better assistance, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
