What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool as a cucumber I have had this unit a couple weeks and it has made my apartment comfortable again! Having this is a God send! The only recommendations/suggestions I would make would be for LG to supply a low drip tray to drain the collected water into as lifting the machine to do so requires two people and I'm a single woman. Secondly, the adjustable window slats, it would be incredibly helpful if there were arms one could swing into place on either side of the pane being used. It's a challenge to secure the hose to the slats without them wiggling and coming loose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact and powerful! We bought this a month ago after our old one died on us.we had a fridgidare brand one before and it was loud and bulky. We we’re presently suprised by how sleek, and powerful the LG is. You notice a difference in the temperature of the room just minutes after turning it on.

Power went out last night and when it came back in the Unit has an E5 display. Does anyone know what that means or how to fix it

Asked by: Crim
The E5 error code indicates that the water collection tank is full. To drain the water collection tank completely, leave the bottom drain cap off long enough to allow any residual water to drain out. Once the water tank is completely drained and no more water flows out, reinstall the cap. If this doesn't resolve the issue you are experiencing, our support team would be happy to help.

The room I have Is really sealed. Do I need fresh air coming in room so compressor doesn't have to work so hard?

Asked by: Thearizrob
The LG 12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner, Model # LP1218GXR is a single hose Portable Air Conditioner that has to be installed in a sealed room so it does not pull in hot air from the outside. It uses the compressor to power the cooling system and removes heat from the room, by pulling air from within the room and expel warmed air and moisture outside. If the room is not sealed properly, the air that is drawn into the room through the breaches will force the unit to work much harder to keep the room cool...^IFV

All type of windows are supported with the included kit installation?
