I just bought the LG 10000 btu window model... I am having the same exact problem.. it feels like the air is not even on.. I am having someone look at it on Mon. I have a feeling the whole unit is defective. But it could be the thermostat needs to be replaced. Sucks 300 dollar brand new AC and it doesnt work!! Good luck. I will never buy LG again.

Using as heater and unit is blowing cold air


A heat pump is an air conditioner that reverses its refrigerant flow. In the cooling mode, the evaporator is cold to the room and its condenser is hot. In the heating mode, a valve reverses the refrigerant flow and makes the evaporator warm and the condenser cold.

Debi, it;s not unusual for an AC unit to turn ON & OFF. Once it reaches the temperature that you have it set ON and holds the temperature for 4 or 5 minutes, it will shut OFF until the room temperature rises above it. Be sure all the doors and windows are closed and no hot air is infiltrating the area.

Also, a 10,000 BTU air conditioner is not designed to handle a large area. Generally, 10,000 BTU's will handle about 3200 Cubic Feet (20' x 20' x 8' = 3200 sq ft) or simply put, 400 square feet. Your A/C unit may be undersized for the area you're trying to cool.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

How do I get my LG 12000 BTU ac/dehumidifier to dehumidify


This is a quote from the manufacturer.

Dry mode is used to remove humidity from the room
without additional cooling. Once the set temperature
is reached, the compressor and circulation fan turns
off and only the exhaust fan will run. Fan speed is
pre-set and cannot be adjusted.

Room temp stays at 76 and will not get any colder even though unit seems to operate and compressor sounds like it turns on and fan blows and water drains . it is set to 60. room is about 300 sq ft


Hi,
From what you are describing the unit is working perfectly...You just have alot of heat infiltration and the best that unit can do is 76....
If you want or need it cooler you will need to buy a larger size unit...

My lg wall unit (LWHD1009R) 10,000 btu the compressor keeps turning off after it gets going. even though I have it on a low temp. the comressor turns off after 5-10 minutes even though the room is not cold


either going off on low charge which would cause it to ice up, which means you need refrigerant. or high head pressure might just have to clean the coils or check condensor fan.

Hello, I can assist you.

If the unit is supposed to turn off and it doesn't, it will be necessary to check several things.


  • First, is the unit cooling properly? See the section entitled "The air is cool but doesn't seem cold enough."

  • Next, is the temperature of the room adequately cool? If the room temperature is cold enough try setting the thermostat to a higher temperature. If the unit then seems to work properly leave the thermostat set to the higher temperature.

  • If the unit is cooling properly when it is turned on and the room is not cool enough the problem is probably that the unit is trying to cool an area that is too large for its capacity. Use the following chart to find the appropriate size air conditioner to use:

AREA TO BE COOLED / CAPACITY (BTU/HR)

100 to 150 square feet = 5,000

150 to 250 square feet = 6,000

250 to 300 square feet = 7,000

300 to 350 square feet = 8,000

350 to 400 square feet = 9,000

400 to 450 square feet = 10,000

450 to 550 square feet = 12,000

550 to 700 square feet = 14,000

700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000

If the room is heavily shaded, reduce needed capacity by 10%

If the room receives a lot of direct sun, increase needed capacity by 10%

Add 600 Btu/Hr for each person in the room if there are more than two people

If the unit is for a kitchen, increase the capacity by 4,000-6,000 Btu/Hr.

If the room size is too big for the air conditioner you have two possible choices. Either decrease the room size by shutting some doors or partitioning off an area of the room. Or, increase the BTU of the air conditioner for that room by installing a different air conditioner with a higher BTU rating.

The 10,000 BTU portable room a/c unit is not running cold enough


Make sure your vent is closed. check the filter to see if its clean. If you run the a/c you can check your evaporator to see if you have condensation or does it freeze up?
Make sure you have your unit on early in the morning. If you turn it on in the afternoon the humidity might be too much and it will take along time to cool down.
Try those things if that doesnt work then you need a service call.

I bought a Lg 11,500 btu air conditioner yesterday at home depot. It has been set on 60 degrees with the fan on high and will only bring my room temp down to 79....it does not feel cool


An 11'500 btu Is appr. 1 ton of cooling capacity or enough to cool approximatly 450 sq ft of floor area. Be sure to read the instructions of course and be sure that all the packaging material was removed that may be restricting airflow. On high you should be able to easily feel the air blowing 10-15 ft from the unit and the air should be dropping about 15- 20 degrees when it exits the unit. So if the room temperature is 85 degrees the air exiting the unit should be around 65 -70. The amount of time it takes to cool the entire room depends on how big the room is and how much and the intensity of the heat infiltrating the room and the number and heat output of appliances and people in the room. Hope this helps you out GL!
