What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad packaging I bought this model LP1217GSR and it is missing pieces. I took it back we opened up another one and the piece wasn’t there. Another couple brought there’s in because of the same same reason. We made our own part but didn’t cool our room down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product is great, works perfectly I bought this to combat the heat in my upstairs bedroom. I really love the product it does exactly what it says it should do. The only reason I gave it at 4 is because the exhaust hose does not stay attached and is not easy to attach. It would be better if it just somehow snapped on to the.

Does the 1217 Nobel red a drain hose and were and how do I attach one

Asked by: Judy7247
Hi Judy. Please pardon us if we are misunderstanding your inquiry, but we are not clear on it and will need some clarification. If you use the HEAT mode for the LG 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner, Model # LP1217GSR, you must install a drain hose. If you are using the COOL mode, the drain hose is not needed. If the outside temperature is at or near freezing (32°F/0°C) follow the indoor drainage instructions which can be found on page 22 of your owner's manual for the air conditioner. To attach the drain hose, insert the connector into the upper drain port at the back of the unit until it snaps into place. Place the other end of the drain hose in a bucket that holds at least 28 ounces. Remember to check and empty the bucket frequently to avoid overflows. Set the unit to automatic drain by pressing the Fan and Down buttons at the same time. To detach the drain hose, push the outer ring of the upper drain port in and pull the connector out...^IFV

Need portable A/C for Food Truck. I do not need "residential" features such as sleep mode, wife options, etc. Simply needs to be high output with exhaust vent. Do you make a unit with drain line since emptying a bucket is not desired.
