Hi, It opens a flap that allows fresh outside air to come in. The opening it screen covered on most units so no insects get in. To get the most cooling it is best to leave it closed. If you want fresher air, open it. Please rate my suggestion if it has helped. Thank you and, Have a good day. kstfas

SOURCE: what is the air exchanger (open or closed) switch for?

The air exchanger is there to give you the option of adding fresh outdoor air [open] or recirculate the air in the room [closed].

SOURCE: window air condition (LG)

I have been looking through others with similar symptoms - I have found at least 4 so far and I have the same problem. The common ingredient is that the compressor runs for exactly one minute and then kicks off for several minutes. Some LG units (mine is a 8008R) have a Dry Mode that does exactly this by design. It seems that mine sometimes does this in Cool Mode. Once it is powered on, it either works correctly, or does this one minute on, several minutes off routine. It seems to randomly choose one of the two modes on power-on and does not change.

I have a window mounted unit. There is a lever that says exhaust and it has two settings. Up is 'closed' and down is 'open'. I have no owners manual so could you please explaine what this...


This lever is for the air vent control. Open it to allow fresh air to enter the conditioned space and close to make sure that the air outside will not mix with the inside air. Opening it also allows to exhaust cold air from the room.

Tip

Portable Air Conditioning great portable air cooling


Portable air conditioning offers you the convenience of mobility. All you have to do is roll the portable air conditioner to the room in which it's needed. Install an exhaust hose out a window or other opening (everything you need is provided) and turn it on. The installation process for these units is very simple. These portable air conditioning units are built small enough to be very mobile and are supplied with wheels for easy movement. A portable air conditioner will also work very well in apartment situations where you will often find a window unit is unacceptable.

Portable air conditioners are very unique in that they are portable and can be easily moved to different locations in your home or business. They can be a highly effective way to either help out an existing HVAC system in one room or cool a single room entirely. They are also one of the best ways to cool a room or area without having to install a window mounted unit.

These air conditioners use a compressor and Freon to cool just like normal air conditioning. They are very effective in cooling rooms and to keep the humidity low. Like normal air conditioners portable units extract hot air that must be vented. That is why they need to have the exhaust hose to the outside. These units can cool air as well as air conditioning done with window air conditioners. However they do not require installation like conventional window air conditioners this makes them very convenient for seniors or physically challenged people. Most portable air conditioners are supplied with a window kit. This kit contains exhaust hoses that will work in any window: double-hung, casement, awning or slider. Because they vent through an opening like a window they require no permanent mounting like window air conditioning.

Portable air conditioners are a very good cooling option for those who can't use the more conventional air conditioning methods. Remember though that this type of unit is not as efficient as most window units or conventional air. So while they may make your environment cooler, it won’t turn your tent into a room at the local hotel.

So as you can see these air conditioning units have some great advantages over other types of air conditioning. They are a great alternative for unique applications where central air or conventional window units are either unfeasible or too expensive. During special events, portable air conditioning can also be a great way to keep guests or equipment cool and comfortable. Always be aware though that because portable air conditioning will remove moisture from the air, they will also need to be drained occasionally similar to a dehumidifier.

Does your application warrant a permanent air conditioner of some form or should you just use a portable one? There are some interesting things to consider when making that choice. Weigh out all of the different options and make that decision based on what will best suit your needs.

Unit releases xcessive amounts of water when


Part of an air conditioners job is to remove humidity from the air. The more humid it is, the moisture it will remove from the air. Some thru-the-wall/window air conditioners have fresh air vents. Ensure the fresh air vents are closed and make sure there is no air leakage around the unit & wall.
Keep your air filter and coils clean. If your unit has multiple blower speeds, use high speed during the more humid conditions.
I hope you find this information helpful moving forward. :-)

Just bought a kenmore 10000 btu window a/c unit - need to install


You CAN put it on the 3rd floor as long as you make sure it's completely secure. One thing I do recommend is building (or buying) a window unit shelf that sits outside the window and the air conditioner sits on it for extra support. The shelf is secured by the window frame.

There are many "how-to" guides to building a window unit shelf all over the internet.

I hope this helps.

How do I use the air exchanger open or closed for best cooling? Bought a used in window unit? Thanks.


"Closed" cools best, but does not exchange air with the outside. Humidity in the room can have more of a tendency to freeze up on the coils, but it is relatively rare. Odors also tend to build up. "Open" allows some outside air to be exchanged with the inside air, but this is less effecient.
That was the long answer. What I'd do is operate it as closed as I could stand it, and leave it cracked open a bit. If I started having icing problems, I'd open it a bit more.

Re: air cond. should exhaust lever be open or closed to cool off?


Im not sure what type of unit you are speaking about but in general a window airconditioner unit will have an exhaust button. This button generally opens a small door that allows a small ammount of fresh air to mix with the conditioned air from the room. When it is closed all of the air is recycled from the room. To cool a room fastest, close the outside air inlet.

Window unit air conditioner kicks in only when its really hot out


I would consider replacing the t'stat if it does not seem to cycle at the desired temps. Also, the outside air allows fresh air to be introduced into the conditioned space but it will also effect, to a degree, the units ability to cool the conditioned space. Once you get the unit running, try it with the baffle on and closed and see which one you like. Remember, the outside air has and add humidity and can make it seem hotter than it really is in the room.

F1, F2, and F3 are the strength of the fan blowing the air conditioner. F1 circulates the least amount of air, F3 the most. I generally find that if the air conditioner isn't getting the job done on F1, F2 will do it. I typically only use F3 if I just want to circulate air fast in my place for awhile. As far as what is "better" with closed vent or open, that depends on what you want to do. If you are using air conditioning on a hot day, then vent closed is better because it will cool only air circulating in your place. Vent open will allow fresh air in from outside, and if it's a really hot day, the air conditioner might have a harder time cooling off the fresh air than the circulating air inside your place (as it's continually being cooled repeatedly by your air conditioner).
