LG air conditioner window unit use in the rain

We use the fan in our window unit to get air into the room. Can it be used when it's raining or will that cause electrical problems and ruin the unit?

Please check the housing of the air conditioner.

see to it that there is no vent or openings at the top of the housing for the rain to enter.

you can use it even when it is raining.

Is my portable lg air conditioner suppose to be blowing hot air out of the back


YES
it works the same as any air conditioner where if you go outside and place your hand at the fan then it will be blowing hot air
In the instructions it should say place the rear near an open door or window or use the hoses to move the hot air out of the room
air conditioner units are basic heat transfer units where they take the heat out of the room and transfer it to the outside and in the process remove the moisture from the air in the room which i turn makes it more comfortable

My outside unit is making a loud weird noise but the inside unit is working completley fine it is 7yrs old now


the outside unit is where it all happens. That is where the compressor is and its cooling fan. The inside unit is just an evaporator, a bit like a car radiator and a fan. The inside unit is protected by the room, the outside unit is in the rain, snow and wind.

You need an AC engineer.

It is for out side air,but rain is not supposed to come threw it,remove the unit from the window and clean it out,there is most likely trash in the unit making the rain water run in the house.

Why do most window air conditioners have vents on top - would not rain get in and ruin something? Should I be concerned?


Thee window air conditioners are designed to keep the rain water on the outside. There are no components that the rain can get to damage anything.

Rv ac unit leaks, even when fan only


Where the pipes enter the building, look carefully there for a bad seal. Use a good quality sealant and block the leak properly. If there is no rain, and the unit is leaking still with the fan on only, then you have an issue with the drain pipe angle or a kinked pipe or a blockage. Suggest you have it seen to by a aircon. technician as that repair is really not easy.(AC will possibly have to come out to rectify problem).

sounds like the rain is getting onto the electronics. let the unit dry out and maybe cover the top part of a/c that is sticking out outside

GE air conditioner with air louvers on top of case - problem?


Most fan motors are allergic to water. You should carefully examine the places where rain could go and decide whether GE has sold you a risky situation. After all, they have left it up to you to make the decision.

I wouldn't buy one with openings on the top and I wouldn't keep one after GE has demonstrated that not responding is the kind of help you will receive.
