Question about LG LB8000ER Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Unit filled with water -hard to drain

I have the LG 12000 BTU Air conditioner, and its been working great. Recently, I noticed that when on, it would hum like the fan wanted to turn but couldnt. Being off a while fixed the problem, but it would sieze again. I live in a humid state, so when I read that you might need to drain the unit, I figured my problem is solved. However, I live on the second story of a building - and getting to that drainage pipe in the back is going to be a real pain. Is there any way I can do this without killing myself? Thanks for your help in advance. -Kaerbear

Possibly its a capacitor thats faulty and not the drainage. still, the unit will have to be removed from its casset (case) to be repaired.

How much water do I need for the air conditioner

I've never seen an air condition device that needs to add water to work. Actually they RELEASE condensation water and you need to collect this water or drain it through a tube

36 is equal to 36000 btu. To find the ton divide by 12000 btu. 12000 BTU is a ton of refrigeration. This is a 3 ton unit.

Water

This ac unit will have to be taken apart and clean out the drain holes in the bottom of the case.Use a water hose to clean and wash it out,also remove any large objects by hand,of course you will have to remove the unit from the window to do this.

Where does the water drain out of the unit on the frigidaire 10000-12000 btu and the 22000-285000 btu units?

The unit should be angled back to the outside. The water will run thru a tube from the indoor coil to the outdoor coil, then most fan blades have a slinger on them that picks up the water and throws it on the out door coil, which makes it more efficient but after time the water and dust will pile up on the coil and require cleaning at some point. If you clean the coil you can extend the life of the unit quite a bit. So you may not get any water to drip outside.

How many tons is my unit?

divide your btu rating by 12000. (1 ton = 12000 btu)
For example - a 24,000 BTU Air Conditioner is a 2 ton unit. 24000 divided by 12000 = 2
A 18000 btu air condtioner is a 1 1/2 ton unit 18000 divided by 12000 = 1 1/2
you can find out your btu rating by looking on the tag on your unit.
