Question about LG LWHD1800R Wall/Window Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Doesn't Cool Entire Room/Space - also very noisy

We actually have an LWHD8000R
The space is no more than 25' x 9' and we cannot get it cool to save our lives
We have followed the manual to the letter
you can't feel the cold air unless you are literally right next to the vent and the room is not cool at all ever!
For some reason only at night it makes this awful clicking and buzzing sound & has to be turned off to rest

Anything we can do?

It sounds like it is cooling a little bit. So I will suggest to you that it may be low on refrigerant. I assume that you have cleaned the filter because you followed the manuals instructions.

The clicking and buzzing sounds may be that the compressor is pulling high amps and failing. Otherwise I have heard similar noises when a capacitor fails. You will probably need a technician to make the repairs.

I cannot get my temp down to 58 but stays at 68


What is the BTU rating of the unit and what size space are you trying to cool down? Air conditioners move heat from one area to another. Possible reasons for not achieving the temperature you want are 1) the air conditioner you are using is too small to cool the size room you have or 2) the space where you are trying to exhaust the hot air from the air conditioner is too hot to allow your air conditioner to move enough heat out of the room you are trying to cool.

Not cooling room


Assuming the unit is 'cooling' but not cooling it 'well,' I would think the unit is too small.
NOTE: 2000 Btu for every 100 sq ft of cooling space if the room is well insulated. If not - then 2000 btu for every 66 sq ft.
For example - a 12000 btu AC unit should cool 600 sq feet of cooling space if well insulated.
or
400 sq feet if not well insulated.
hope this has helped.

Where to I place the sensor on a wall mount heater? Also, how do I get the heat to go into the other rooms? It seems to me to be hot in the immediate area where it is placed. Thank you.


Thermostats and sensors should be installed in spaces with airflow. This means it should not be on a wall where it may be blocked by an open door or similar objects. It shouldn't be where the sun can shine directly on it (and make the sensor believe it is warmer than it actually is), not should it be on outside walls (and make the sensor believe it is colder than it actually is).

If it is a thermostat, a comfortable height is about 5 feet. This makes it easy for adults to read and set, without worrying about young children changing the settings after your leave. If a simple sensor, this 5 foot height applies still - but lower is just as good. Remember, since heat rises, the air on your face while standing may be a couple degrees warmer than when sitting. A sensor left on the floor will cause the room to feel much warmer than the desired temperature when standing and to a slightly lesser extent while seated. This also translates to higher heating costs.

As mentioned above, heat will naturally move up. Getting it to move side to side requires additional equipment. Fans do the job inexpensively and very nicely. Place them in higher locations (where the heat is) and set the speed to a low setting, aimed into the cool space. This gently moves the warm air into the cool space - without causing a breeze that may actually feel cool on your skin.

I hope this was helpful - good luck!

Clockwise, counterclockwise which is the summer setting?


Ceiling Fan Direction These recommendations depend actually on the height and size of the room; the season; and the activity taking place in the room.

The basic fact of nature is that warm air rises to the top and cold air settles on the bottom. Air settles in layers from warm at the top to cold at the bottom, if left alone at equilibrium.

Ceiling fan recommendations:

In the winter
Set the fan to run counterclockwise (reverse; this looks clockwise as you are looking up). This will redirect the warm air from the ceiling and down the walls and into the living space where the people actually are. In a house, you would run the fan at a low speed so that you don't actually cool the warm air that you are moving downward. If you have a high ceiling, or are trying to heat a hall or a church, you may want to increase the fan speed so that the warm air will reach the living space as long as the fan speed does not create an unwanted downdraft at the people below. In the summer
In a room of normal height (8 - 10 ft), you should operate your fan so that it turns clockwise (this looks counterclockwise as you are looking up), causing a more directed downdraft, especially with the fan running slightly faster. This causes a wind-chill effect because the skin evaporates slight amounts of water from the sweat glands and thereby provides cooling through the skin's surface. However, the air is only moved but not cooled! You may find that you can turn your thermostat down a degree or two and save more money on energy costs. The air blowing down won't actually cool the room though, so you should turn the fan off when there are no people (or animals) in the room. In a high hall or church
It may be best NOT to run the fans at all in summer. This lowers the demand for cooling since the hot layer on top is an excellent insulation between the cool air near the floor (and the people) and the hot roof and outside.

A large, tall manufacturing hall would typically have different goals. There one would have a floor full of heat producing machinery plus the people operating it, working hard and welcoming a bit of a breeze. Then it would make sense to run the fans at fairly high speed to create a certain and directed downdraft. And with the shifts going throughout the days of the week, the fans should be running all the time and maybe in all seasons.

Finally, fans typically use 80-100 watts. When used properly, ceiling fans can really help to optimize the comfort level of the people and save energy and money.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer
