Question about Heating & Cooling
I plugged in my air conditioner and the code P2 keeps flashing and no air is coming out. I looked up P2 and it means it water detection and I'm suppose to drain out the water. How do I do that? Where is the water?
P2 means the water collection tank is full and needs to be drained. You have to pull the drain plug at the bottom of the unit and drain the water.
Drain the water (small amount actually) in the shower. Note: There is a cap towards the bottom of the unit that you will need to unscrew, then pull out the rubber plug. Fired up the unit after the water drain ... it worked fine.

Testimonial: "I did that and let it run for a few minutes and it did work. It's been cool out ever since so when I give a full days worth I'll let you know how it works out. Thanks. :)"
Leave it alone. DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high. Many models use some of the collected water/condensation. It gets lifted up by the fan blades to cool the coil.

If the drip line is raised too high, sometimes the level inside will exceed the trip-point for the pan-level.
Try lowering the drip line so the water runs 'downhill' the whole way. If it still occurs, the sensor in the pan may be stuck.

The P2 Code you're getting is for a system failure. More than likely a sensor has failed In which case, you should contact LG's Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, as it "may" be covered under Warranty.
