Rated 1 out of 5 by from does not cool room The first one I bought for a 10 X 20 insulated, carpeted metal did not cool the building. I traded it in for one twice the cooling capacity and it still will not cool the building. I don't even turn it on now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable Air Conditioner Product is very easy to install and works like a dream. Unit is quiet and is easy on the eyes. While the unit is quiet and efficent the remarkable thing is how well it dehumidifies and cools the room without excessive water build-up and need for water removal. Highly recommended product.

What is the capacity of the water tank in this unit? I am worried about being able to empty it as the unit is already very heavy. I could not find info on drainage in the manual. Only bought and set up today but live in humid place so want to check.

Asked by: OttawaDweller
Hello, the information can be found on page 24 under section "EMPTYING THE WATER COLLECTION TANK" The unit can hold up to 2 pints of water but can have a hose connected. ^AC

At times the Air coming out is extremely crisp and cool! But randomly the air just blows out not so cold. It's random, I've taken the weather heat into consideration. No correlation. It really is useless when it just blowing not so cool air. Help!

i have a problem with water spitting out from top vent .what can i do to fix this . i love this ac .

Asked by: pintopony
Hi pintopony. The LG 12,000 BTU (7,000 BTU, DOE), 115-Volt Portable AC w/ Dehumidifier Function, Model # LP1217GSR, like any other air conditioner is basically a dehumidifier and works by literally sucking heat out of the air to fuel the ongoing vaporization in its evaporation coils. As the air around the coils cools, the moisture in the air condenses on the coils to form droplets. From there, the water drips into the internal water collection tank in the unit which you will need to empty when it gets full. When it starts spitting water from the top vent, it signifies that the evaporator coils may have iced up. When the ice melts, the internal fan then blows that water that is dripping off the evaporator coils into your room. What causes the coils to ice up is a dirty air filter. When the air filter is dirty, air circulation is reduced inside the cooling chamber. Check to make sure that the air filter is clean. The air filter should be cleaned every two weeks or more frequently depending on the air quality. It could also be a result of dirty coils and it is recommended that you have a maintenance service done to clean the evaporator and condenser coils at the beginning of the season by an LG Authorized Service Center...^IFV

The features include a "Water full indicator." Doesn't the unit simply shut off when the reservoir gets full, and then we have to drain it via a built-in drain hose? Or do we have to remove a box full of water? Thank you.

Asked by: Public
We appreciate your interest in this air conditioner. When the unit gets full, the LED will display E5 and the air conditioner will shut off. Drainage information can be located on page 23 of the owner's manual.
