properly grounded outlet. You will hear a
tone to confirm that the conditioner is
plugged in. Do not plug other appliances
into the same outlet; it could overload the
outlet and create a fire hazard.
2 Make sure the air conditioner and cord is
positioned where it does not create a
tripping hazard and will receive adequate
ventilation. Do not place it directly next to
furniture or objects that could block the
vent openings.
3 Make sure that any items that could be
blown over or damaged by the airflow from
the fan are out of the airflow path.
IMPORTANT:
• Do not remain in the direct airflow from the air
conditioner for extended periods of time.
• To prevent damage or injury to pets and
plants, make sure they are not exposed to
direct airflow from the air conditioner.
• When used at the same time as stoves,
fireplaces, and other combustion devices,
make sure there is a sufficient flow of fresh air
into the room. Do not use in tightly enclosed
spaces with these types of devices.
• This air conditioner is intended for household
use as a consumer comfort appliance. Do not
use it as a precision climate control system,
or for purposes such as cooling precision
equipment, food, pets, plants, artwork, etc.

CARE AND CLEANING
Your air conditioner is designed for year-round
operation with only minimal cleaning and
maintenance.
For maximum efficiency, it is recommended
that you have the cooling coils inspected and
cleaned annually. Your local LG Authorized
Service Center can provide this inspection
and cleaning service for a nominal fee.
WARNING
• Unplug the air conditioner before cleaning or performing any maintenance or servicing.
• Be careful when cleaning coils or removing or reinstalling the filter—the cooling fins
are sharp!
Failure to follow the above precautions could result in electrical shock or personal injury.
CLEANING THE CASE
Wipe the case with a
slightly damp cloth, then
wipe dry with a dry cloth
or towel.
• To prevent damage to the finish, do not use
gasoline, benzene, thinner, etc., or any
abrasive cleansers to clean the air
conditioner; they may damage the finish.
• Never pour water onto or into the unit; it
could damage internal components and
create a shock and fire hazard.
CLEANING THE AIR FILTER
The air filter should be cleaned every two weeks;
depending on indoor air quality, more frequent
cleaning may be needed. A dirty air filter will
decrease airflow and reduce efficiency.
Do not operate the air conditioner without
the air filter in place.
1 Grasp the grip which
is in the center and
Filter
on the top of the filter
and pull out the filter
directly.
20
2 Use a vacuum cleaner to clean the filter. If
the filter is heavily soiled, it can be washed
in warm water using a mild detergent.
Do not use harsh cleaners or very hot
wat er. Do not wash in a dish asher
3 Allow the filter to dry completely before
reinstalling.
4 Reinsert the filter, making sure that the
bottom of the filter is between the tabs and
the coil guard. Reinstall the filter cover,
making sure it clips into place.

When the internal water collection tank is full, FL
will appear in the display and the air conditioner
will turn off until the tank is emptied.
1 Unplug the air conditioner, disconnect
the exhaust hose from the back, and move
the air conditioner to a suitable drain
location or outdoors. You may also place
a pan under the drain that will hold up
to 1 quart of water.
2 Remove the drain cap and the rubber plug
from the drain outlet.
3 Once the water collection tank is drained,
reinstall the rubber plug and the drain cap,
making sure it is on securely.

CARE AND CLEARING
STORING THE AIR CONDITIONER
If the air conditioner will not be used for an
extended period of time:
1 Drain the water collection tank completely
and leave the bottom drain cap and rubber
plug long enough to allow any residual water
to drain out. Once the tank is completely
drained and no more water flows out,
reinstall the rubber plug and cap.
2 Remove and clean the filter, allow it to dry
completely, then reinstall it.
3 Remove the batteries from the remote.
4 Store the air conditioner in a cool, dry
location, away from direct sunlight, extreme
temperatures, and excessive dust.
22
Before using the air conditioner again:
1 Make sure the filter and drain cap are
in place.
2 Check the cord to make sure it is in good
condition, with no cracks or damage.
3 Place new batteries in the remote.
4 Install the air conditioner as described in the
Installation Instructions.

not start
• The air conditioner plug is
not completely inserted in
the electrical outlet.
• Make sure electrical plug is plugged completely into a
live, properly grounded outlet.
• The house fuse is blown or the
circuit breaker has tripped.
• Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. Make sure
that there are no other appliances on the same circuit.

• If a power failure occurs, turn the power OFF. When
power is restored, wait 3 minutes before restarting the
air conditioner.
• The integrated circuit breaker in the
plug has tripped.

• Room temperature is less than the
set temperature.
• This is normal. The air conditioner automatically
shuts off when the room equals or is less than the
set temperature. Adjust the temperature setting,
if needed.
• Airflow is restricted.
• Make sure there is sufficient clearance around the
air conditioner and that the air inlet and outlet are
not blocked by furniture, curtains, etc.
• The air filter is dirty.
• Clean the air filter at least every two weeks. See the
Care and Cleaning section.
• The room is very hot, or not enough
time allowed for cooling.

• Check for open furnace floor registers or cold air
returns, or open windows or doors.
• Cooling coils have iced up.
• In especially hot, humid weather and when the air
conditioner is running frequently or for extended
periods, ice can form on the cooling coils, blocking
air flow. Set the controls to High Fan (F3) or High
Cool (F3), and set to a warmer temperature.
• Area to be cooled is too large for
the air conditioner.
• Consult your dealer for the air conditioner capacity
necessary to cool the desired area.
