Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Lasted 3 months before the water problem

MatthewA 9/7/2020

I got this AC mid June and it worked perfectly until last week. I usually had it on every night not so much during the day. Last week I finally see what everyone was having a problem with- the gurgling water noise. I could even see the water from the top vent. I emptied out both drains and the water was still there. I saw on another review they continually drain the AC 24/7 so I tried that and it works. Not ideal but its already September so I really need this for a few more weeks.

Terrible

Jmruess 9/6/2020

I bought the unit two months ago to use intermittently at night while we sleep. Worked great at first. Then the unit started putting out a lot of water. We tried to solve that with a hose/bucket but now the unit puts out water but doesnt cool the room.

Horrible

Lgfrustration1 9/2/2020

I live in southwest LA countyCA..bought unit 7.2020 worked well for 2weeks then it completely started building water like crazy and spitting out water from the top. LG should include a lifeguard there was so much water being spat out.. we had some humid days but not to the extent of where it would effect the functionality of the ac unit.

No longer worth the money

maegankay5 8/26/2020

I bought this in July and at first it worked great It kept my bedroom cool and I could keep it on all night. In the last 3 days I wake up to hear it gurgling water and it turns off prompting me to empty it. Im not sure what changed between then and now but it wont even stay on throughout the night without having to empty it Not worth the money if it barely lasts 2 months

Its raining.

ImAllWetNowThanksLG 8/18/2020

My unit is about a month old at first it worked SO well keeping my tiny bedroom cold. I slept like a lil baby cinnamon roll all tucked in. Ive never loved a machine so much I even gave it a name. Now suddenly its making that wet sloshing noise and you can hear the dripping inside and the fan is catching the water and spitting it everywhere. Ive drained it 3-4 times in the last 24 hours. Panicked and thought I was going to short it out so I unplugged it took the vents off and had a fan going on it all night to really try to dry it out. Checked the drains next morning and nothing was coming out so I plugged it back in and immediately started doing the exact same thing. Idk where this water is that its spitting at me because I checked both drains and not even a little trickle. No rain/humidity/sprinklers that could be getting into it. Disappointing for how much this cost.

worst money spent

CK2020 8/18/2020

I wish we had checked reviews before buying this terrible piece of trash. Within weeks the ac started spitting water and is IMPOSSIBLE to drain. For example: my husband had to drain ours twice today. And the second time I told him just to leave it in our bathtub to drain in hopes we can actually make it through the night without having to troubleshoot. In addition to all of the water issues it doesnt even keep our room cold when it matters. We have tried everything even keeping our bedroom door closed all day and still not effective. I am so disappointed in this product. LG should recall this product and offer a refund or a product that will actually work.

Sleek and Quiet

Cotu 8/15/2020

I used to have a Toshiba unit for my room but it kept waking my wife when it kicked on. This unit is MUCH more quiet. The design and interface is really nice. Mind you Im an HVAC technician. So I greatly prefer that its on R-410A refrigerant as opposed to the R-32 of the other brand.

Easy to install but short life span.

mmricardez 8/12/2020

I purchased this unit from Home Depot last August. I moved to an apartment without central AC and this seemed like a great solution. The AC is a little heavy so I needed help getting it into the house but the box allowed the unit to remain on the ground which means no struggling to get it out. Everything you need for installation is included and installing on a window is very easy and took me no more than 15 minutes to adjust the panels and have it running. The unit worked well right out of the box. This unit does not connect to wifi but its programmable with timer sleep and oscillation to circulate air. The features are good although it is a bit loud. Overall it worked well over the summer but that was it. I do not use it year-round because I live near the coast but once in a while it gets hot and humid. Regrettably this summer after only limited use the AC stopped blowing cold air exactly at the end of the limited warranty so I now have a very expensive fan that I need to dispose of. Because of the price and the purpose of the product I cannot recommend it. Any AC should be able to function properly for at least a couple of years without running out of steam.

Solution to Water Issue

des_chgo 8/10/2020

Ive read many reviews here about gurgling sounds and water leaking from the unit. The manual is very unclear on why this happens or how to solve it. We resolved the issue simply by attaching a short hose to the top drain and placing a large bucket under it. In around 12 hours it collected approximately 1 1/2 gallons of water and the gurgling sounds stopped completely. LG needs to take a good look at the owners manual and make it much more clear that in humid weather conditions draining the water in a necessity

Christopher77 8/6/2020

I bought this a month ago worked great for weeks. now it has started spitting water our of the top vents. It floods with water around the bottom of the fan. It then spits the water out the top making a wet mess around the unit. In addition the noise of the splashing and bubbling as the fan runs through the internal puddle is horrible. At night we have to turn the unit off as the noise keeps up from waking. I have checked the drains all are clear and should be working fine. I have lived in the same home for 50 years. We have had many air-conditioners thru the home over the years. None have ever given us the problem the LG room air conditioner is creating. I did not attach a photo. what would i send a picture of the wet towels we use to mop up around the unit?

Spitting water

Cvamp 8/5/2020

I bought this less than a month ago and it is spitting water out the top on the cool mode. I have it set around 68 and is in a very small room. Worked perfectly the first 2 weeks and then problem started. Mostly writing review for answers and any help on fixing problem.

The Worst Product LG Has Ever Created

VeryUnsatisfied 7/23/2020

First and foremost it fundamentally does not do its job. The room I am in which is very small does not even get cold. Assembling it was a pain and the hose always falls out of either the machine itself or the window.

Working beyond expectations

Doc97 7/23/2020

Purchased this 4 days ago and it has been working very well Reading reviews of portable ac units I didnt expect it to work as well as a window unit however this thing is doing a great job. It is quieter than a window unit and once you find the sweet spot setting the temp the compressor cycles on and off as needed. **My advice to LG would be to put an obvious warning on the outside of the box cautioning to keep the unit upright I think there would be many less negative reviews if people were aware of this If tipped or shipped on its side you need to wait at least 24 hours before starting it If you order and have it shipped you should assume you need to wait knowing how stuff gets packed into delivery trucks. Im pretty sure on a hot day many people unaware of the importance plug it in as soon as they unpack it leading to failures. The hose kit and window adapter fit well and as expected.

Great unit

Chris720 7/6/2020

Easy to set up. Keeps my 10 x 12 bedroom plenty cool on the low setting. A little noisy but not terrible. I work nights so the noise actually works well for drowning out the sounds of the world as I sleep during the day. Overall a great value for a quality product.

Compressor went out after just two summers.

JSATL 7/2/2020

I want to be fair here but its hard to rate this unit very high as the compressor needs to be replaced after just a couple of summers worth of use. We keep the air clean and follow all the rules and Im still having to get it repaired. Not happy.

Bad odor No accessory for patio sliding door

BostonBob 6/23/2020

Bought two units. One unit works great in a bedroom window but the other has no adapter or accessory available to use in a room with only a sliding patio door. I also noticed the room being air conditioned smells like an old motel room due to the Ac running.

Happy Customer

Anise 5/4/2020

I bought one last year and I am thrilled that I did. Great price My windows arent large enough and yes residing in an apartment in New York I have window guards. I am so pleased that I was still able to purchase an air conditioner I suffer terribly through the summer months. I am talking my son into buying one. I have cleaned the filters dust it off and raring to go. It works just as well as the first day I plugged it in YES I want one for my livingroom then I will be blessed with cool comfortable rooms for me and my fur baby. Thanks for such a sturdy reliable efficient air conditioner and most importantly the price is RIGHT
