Customer Question
I have an LG 9000...
I have an LG 9000 BTU portable air conditioner. The compressor only stays on for about 40 seconds, then stays off for about 5 minutes. I have a 350 square foot non-insulated garage and I am venting the exhaust through the dryer vent. Is it the air-conditioner or the setup?
