What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I’ve had it for awhile- works great. It is only a little louder than a desk fan. Easy to install. Love the energy saver feature. Keeps my bedroom very cool and comfortable. Was nice during the recent Cali heatwave with temps around 110

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the older version I bought this to replace an older 5000 BTU unit (also LG). The old one worked fine but was a little under-powered for the space. This new 6000 BTU unit seems to actually work harder to cool the same space. PROS: ? small and light. Very easy to put into the window and take out in the fall. One of the lightest units out there. ? great design. The upward flow of chilled air is much better than a forward facing flow. CONS: ? noisy. My sound meter measures 62 dB @ 1 meter on low--nowhere close to the 52 dB claimed in the specs. ? annoying 'energy saver'. The unit cycles on and off every 3-5 minutes just to 'take the temperature' of the room. It's noisy and extremely annoying--the old unit did not do this. It's better just to run the unit continuously. ? poor thermostat. The unit will just run and run and run... unless you stand in front of it, in which case it will turn off. I guess that it means it's super-sensitive to air flow--generally not a good thing for something designed to measure temperature smoothly. ? inaccurate digital controls. Yes, it looks snazzy but it's about 5 degrees off. At least the old manual dial used a more honest setting of 'warmer' and 'colder'. In short, the bells and whistles added have made this a worse machine. Plus it should be much quieter, especially with the fan mechanism (maybe have an ultra-low speed?). I wish that I'd keep my old 5000 BTU unit. It may have not been quieter, but it was far less annoying.

How many inches is the distance from the front of the unit to the surrounding window frame? Not looking for the entire depth of the unit. Only the part that in in the room. Thanks

Does this unit have side panels? By side panels, I mean those things on both sides of the AC that you extend to fill the sides of the window (looks a bit like an accordion). Every picture of this product online doesn’t show the side panels

Asked by: Lauralovesac
Those things on both sides of the air conditioner that are also referred to by some as accordion curtains are listed as the Left Guide panel and the Right Guide panel and they come as included accessories with the LG 6,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW6017R, and all other LG Window Air Conditioners...^IFV

What are the timer lengths ? F1 F2 F3 and so on. I know some of them go off and on at different times. Thanks in advance.

Asked by: Jetta951
Hi Jetta951. 'F1', 'F2', and 'F3' on the LG 6,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW6017R are not timer lengths. Those are the speed settings for the fan speed. 'F1' is Low, 'F2' is Medium and 'F3' is High. The Delay ON/OFF Timer can be used to set the air conditioner to automatically turn On/Off from 1 to 24 hours. When the air conditioner is off, you can set the Delay ON to automatically turn it on from 1 to 24 hours later at its previous mode and fan settings. When the air conditioner is on, you can set the Delay Off to automatically turn it off from 1 to 24 hours later...^IFV

I know the depth of the cabinet is approx. 14.3 inches... I have bars on the outside of my window... what is the depth of the portion of the cabinet that would be outside the window?

Asked by: Ryan FA
The portion of the LG 6,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW6017R that will be on the outside of the structure will depend on the depth of your window sill...^IFV

I am not sure where water is going out from the AC. I have another 8000 BTU that throws a lot water. I wonder if it is going inside the wall or does it do something special and recycle the water inside. If I remove the unit from wall, there is water.

Asked by: ajitsingh
This unit does not, I repeat NOT remove the water.  It sits in the outside encasement and collects debris and it festers to mold and what not.  Then it ruins the remote sensors and will no longer operate with the remote.  You must drill holes in the lower outer casement and let the water drain.  Absolutely not what is adverised.

While I like the unit and it performs well, I find that in high humidity condensation collects on the metal front underside and drips down on the window sill. I have put a rolled up towel wedged the front, but wonder if I am doing something wrong.
