Sorry but you are just going to have to keep emptying it. These types or air conditioners are also use as de-humidifiers and unless you can place it somewhere where you can connect a drain hose it is going to require many trips to dump the holding tank of the condensation.

I have a LG LP1200DXR and IT doesn't cool and it hasn't asked to drain in alot of months


If it hasnt been drained then there is likely a float switch that is keeping the compressor from running so that it doesnt overflow.

I have the LG LP1200DXR and it is leaking near the wheel and i cant figure out why, when we drain it no water comes out what could the problem be?


All air conditioners collect condensate. It has to drain somewhere. Try connecting tubing to the drain hole or port. In order for air conditioners to remove heat from a space, they also remove humidity, which is water vapor in the air. Like placing a cold beverage in a warm room, it will form condensate (water) around it. The water that you were trying to drain out already leaked out. This is a normal thing for condensation to form when cooling. The condensate needs to be emptied regularly or piped with flexible tubing to a window or plumbing.This is the same as water dripping from your car while the A/C is on.

My LG LP1200DXR Portable Air Conditioner seems to be working properly, cooling the room as it should but no longer is draining any water. It does not shut off as it would when it is full although I have...


Actually, your unit was not designed for continuous draining. It needs water in the tank to help cool the coils. I'm sort of surprised that the unit hasn't stopped cooling or hasn't overheated. Since you haven't seen any water in the drain tank you have, it may have pasted the point of no return. Disconnect the hose, reinstall the drain plug and hope that you have to start emptying the tank again, soon.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Air conditioner will run for about 3 hours then stops because its full - it seems to fill constantly fast??


Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. This is normal depending on the amount of humididty in the air the faster it will fill. What you could do is run an external drain line to drain the water while its filling so you don't have to keep dumping the fill pan.
