There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
A minor annoyance is that it doesn't have a 24/7 intelligent timer, rather a dumb one that will turn off the unit after some time. The timer also has no memory, so you have to set it each time you turn it on.
The pro's is in its basic energy saving function, and this is the mode I find I keep the unit in. The unit turns itself off once the temperature is reached. In all other modes the unit turns off the condenser but keeps the fan running.
I've uploaded a video showing the unit cooling at the three fan settings ON at F3 -> F1 -> F2 ->F3 and OFF.
EDIT: After about three days of use the unit started to make noises, like 'shhh shhh shhh' and bubbling while operating (in addition to the normal compressor noise), unit still cools and heats but theres a mildew like smell in my living room now.
EDIT 2: I ordered a replacement via Amazon, and the second unit is much quieter! However, the new unit does not drain the water automatically from the the top tube, requiring a manual activation (Timer + Down button when the FL code shows up). There is something wrong with its draining mechanism. LG customer service is no help when it comes to figuring out the problem, they want me to manually empty the bottom reservoir and observe the unit for a while... (this after they initially denied the unit has automatic draining via the top outlet, to which they changed their stance after reading the manual closely)
FYI - from LG customer support: there are two reservoirs in this unit, bottom and top. The bottom unit fills up in cooling and fan mode, whereas the top unit fills up in heat and dry mode. Both reservoirs are seperate, and the top one should drain automatically via the drain tube. The bottom one requires you to screw out the plug, tilt the unit back, and drain manually.
Verdict: I would NOT recommend you to buy this product. There seems to be a high variance in how well the end product works, and the fact that the unit has been discontinued by LG is another worrying indicator. I am going through the pain and hassle in dealing with LG, because I've already made alterations to my home to accommodate this product.
EDIT: F*** this noise. I will never buy an LG unit again, the customer service is the worst. The unit stopped heating a 200sqft room, LG says thats normal behavior, even though the box states 14000BTU heating capacity up to 500sqft.
After reading the reviews about the loudness of the unit my wife and I were hesitant, but we got one to try out. It was only as loud as a large fan, although when it cycles to dehumidify (which sounds a bit like gurgling) it is a little louder, still nothing like what the reviews claimed. After using the first unit for about two months we decided on getting a second unit. The dead HVAC system was 3-ton (36k BTU) and each of these is approximate to 1-ton (14k is a bit more than 12k but also slightly less effective due to exhaust aspect) and our house is approx. 1500 sq ft (we also have a partially finished basement which is not heated/cooled and we may get a third unit to go down there at some point). With one unit running the house was cooled fine (we use fans to disperse the coolness through the house) except during the hottest hours of the day (particularly with my wife cooking it would get rather warm in the late afternoon early evening). So we got the second unit. It was a Amazon warehouse deal (as was the first) but was in worse shape than the first (had some obvious signs of having been dropped at some point, cracks on front and side).
Ok, so the first thing to keep in mind when you get your portable AC is to set it where you will be leaving it and leave it for at least 24 hours. Even though there are stickers saying not to tip over, you can't know how it was transported and it is important that the coolant settles before running it. So we left it for a day and turned it on, the whole thing rattled like it was going to loosen the screws if we left it on. The first one did not do this at all, and this was the sound that the bad reviews had mentioned. So what was going on?
After further inspection I discovered the problem: the unit sits on casters on the bottom, but the actual AC component is suspended on three spring pegs that sit in a pan on the bottom. At some point the unit had been dropped, thereby the impact cracked this pan (which is stupidly plastic, the worst design flaw in the whole thing) and one of the three spring legs popped out. Thus when you turn it on the AC shakes; it should be gently vibrating on the three springs in the pan but with one of them hanging out it was off balance and the exposed spring drummed on the floor thus causing all the shaking and rattling.
My short term solution is simple - I stuck a thick soled shoe under it so the spring was raised the inch or so to where it is supposed to be and thereby gave it sufficient cushion, now the sound is gone and the unit runs just as quiet as the first one.
I am in the long term going to contact LG to see if I can get a replacement pan for the one that cracked, but in the meantime the shoe has returned full functionality to the unit. If you ordered this new and find it is super loud, look under it, I would bet that you have the same issue. These units need better packaging and stickers identifying how fragile it is in transport (DO NOT DROP!). I assume that the pan cracks because in transport the box gets dropped, making the AC land hard internally on these pegs and crack, there goes the pan. If you have a new unit making this sound, return it and swap it out, it should not be making any more sound than a fan with the occasional gurgling.
Otherwise, these units are great. They have a nice range of modes and have been very effective at cooling and dehumidifying the house. The dehumidify feature is particularly excellent as it expels the moisture through the air vent. It is vital that when setting up you make the vent hose go in two 90 degree angles, up, and out. Odd angles and extra ones will destroy the ability to get the moisture out automatically. Basically the unit sprays the water into the exhaust air and most of it makes it out as humid hot air. Some of it collects on the exhaust tube and drips back down, but that's the design because then it gets collected and re-sprayed out again. If you set it up right it will do a great job.
I am interested to see how well these work as heaters which is important for us. I will update in the winter after we have had a chance to use them as such, but so far apart from the poorly designed bottom pan (and the need for more secure packaging) this is a marvelous piece of technology that I highly recommend.
