What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2nd bought problem This is my second LG air conditioner that has quit working properly within 2 years. Both of them got where they come on but the compressor will NOT SHUT OFF. I am very disappointed that my LG products have not held up longer than they did. Notice I bought TWO that both failed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST LG AC PURCHASE OUT OF 5 I HAVE PURCHASED LG 8,000, 12,000, 12,000, 15,000, AND 24,500 AND 3 DAYS AGO A PORTABLE 12,000. OF A THESE, THIS ONE IS MY FAVORITE AND EASILY THE BEST VALUE. WHEN IT COMES ON, IT CRANKS OUT THE COLD AND FOR SOME REASON JUST OUTPERFORMS THE OTHERS BY A MILE. THEY JUST BUILT THIS ONE RIGHT.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so great Don't expect the fan motor to last longer than 5 months. Other than that, it does produce cold air.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I live in a 2 story house with no central air. .Upstairs is a stairway and hall and 3 rooms. This unit was placed just at the top of the stairs.It has morning sun on that side.Well I was told this unit would cool the whole upstairs. Well guess what it does a very lousy job. the air goes down into the stairway . Then into the other rooms. It does not cool very well. Keeping it on automatic.So as not to use to much electricity. I had to put a tent of material to block the stairwell. Now it still doesn't keep it very cool . I have the thermostat set on 76 degrees. I have a cat that refused to come down.She has claimed the upstairs for herself. Or else I wouldn't have the air on at all. The temp won't get below 80. With the thermostat set at 76 degrees. I even closed one door to one of the rooms. Afraid what my electric may be next bill coming. dont buy this unit if you want a cool house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I purchased this window unit a couple of months ago and at the time the temperature was warm. It worked just fine, cooling my porch in no time. I like that it has a thermostat that allows it to come on and go off automatically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cools Quickly and Efficiently I bought this air conditioner in August and am extremely happy with it! It cools my 1000 square foot apartment quickly and keeps it cool without a ton of noise. If I ever need another air conditioner, I will definitely buy an LG!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value After much research i found this LG product to be an outstanding value for my needs. I purchased the LG1515ER three months ago and have seen a substantial cost reduction in my utility bill. The air conditioner is reliable, relatively quiet and easy to use. I definitely recommend LG's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Best purchase ever. We bought this model thinking it would at least keep the front end of our 1800sqft rambler cool, so imagine how happy we are when it's cooling our ENTIRE house! We've had 80-90 degree weather, and it's keeping our house at an average of 70-72 degrees. It was super easy to install also. Which is a huge bonus. Thank you LG for making such an awesome product! We recommend to everyone we know who is looking for a unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful A/C, Very Energy Efficient This is the first 15,000 BTU window air conditioner we have purchased, since before now...we've always had Central Air. This A/C, when my husband tested it was found to run us a little over $4 a day to operate (we have Solar Energy, living in Hawaii). Knowing how high electricity is out here, we are thrilled with the results and the price. Thank you LG!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I purchased this product because a new central air conditioner was not affordable. the house is only 800 sq ft and this unit cools very nicely. i keep the unit at 75 degrees on energy saver mode. outside it is 90 degrees daily in south florida. if i am cooking in the kitchen, I use the cooling mode at 74 with a fan speed of F2. this runs the cool air straight into the kitchen. the dogs are loving it and I am finally able to sleep. the central air would run continuously and could not cool below 80 so you can imagine how happy I am to have this unit. first electric bill decreased kWh by 120 and bill decreased by 20.00. the sound took some getting used to and it is not bad. i can't compare because i never had a window unit. filter is easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO EFFICIENT. CHEAPER AND BETTER THAN CENTRAL AIR. THIS AIR CONDITIONER EXCEEDS MY EXPECTATIONS. IT MAINTAINS SET TEMPERATURE FOR OVER 1000 sq.ft. THE PRICE IS FAIR AND MORE ECONOMICAL THAN RUNNING CENTRAL AIR. I WOULD RECOMMEND.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my second LG window a/c-wore out the first This is my second LG window a/c-wore out the first one. In Texas when summer starts late May-early June I turn on the Window a/c and it runs 24/7 until Fall late October. The old LG window a/c 15,000 btu worked until rust and general wear and tear required a replacement. When I bought the replacement unit all I had to do was remove the old core and slide the new core into the external casing, perfect fit. The old unit was till operable but not as efficient. I gave it to someone who had no working a/c. The new unit is working fantastic and blowing really cold air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Air conditioner! This air conditioner has made my house so much cooler, even on a setting of 69 to 70. So glad we made this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product is good looking This product has to cool 3 rooms and does a great job. Easy to operate and quiet.
Date published: 2015-07-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy another one without hesitation Product is quiet operating; cools fantastically; easily operated; easily installed; and is far better than other units I have had in the past. Price /value is indeed a very big plus. I've never had to have the fan above F2 even on the hottest Texas days. Filter is easy to clean. Remote is easily operated. Minimum noise means that sleeping in the same room with the unit is great.

Is it safe to run the unit without a front cover

Asked by: MosesPM
The front cover and the filter that fits behind the front cover on the LG Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW1515ER are designed to prevent airborne dirt and dust from getting into the unit so that the cooled air that is blown back into your room is clean...^IFV

My unit is humming even when not running. The only way to make it stop is to unplug it. I cleaned the coils. I read that it might be the assembly/relay board. I'm having trouble finding the part number for that. 

Asked by: Jana C
I'm having the exact same issue with my LW1515ER, it's like the compressor is stuck on even though the power button is off. Maybe it's a bad relay. Has this issue been looked into? Is LW1515ER still available or has it been replaced?

CAN WE INSTALL AN LGLW1516 ER WINDOW A/C IN AN EXISTING HOLE IN AN EXTERIOR WALL?

Asked by: CURTIS G
The LG Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW1516ER requires a standard single hung or double hung window for proper installation. The outside of the cabinet must extend outward for at least 12" and there should be no obstacles, such as a fence or wall within 20" from the back of the cabinet because it will prevent the condenser from radiating heat out. All side louvers of the cabinet must remain exposed to the outside of the structure. Non-window installations, including using sleeves, holes in walls, and other installations are not recommended...^IFV

We appreciate your interest in this window air conditioner.

Can this unit be mounted on a wall instead of the window?

Asked by: Tamayo
The LG Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW1515ER is designed for installation in standard single or double-hung windows and cannot be used with a wall sleeve, installed in holes in the wall or any other type of installation. The louvers in its case cannot be obstructed and covering them up would not only result in a reduced cooling capacity, but could also cause the unit to burn itself out...^IFV
