My LG portable AC continues to flash FL (full water), but there is no water in it. I have drained it, reset it, leveled it, and cleaned it. It will run for 5 seconds then stop and flash FL. I have also opened the cover to ensure a working float switch. HELP PLEASE!

    P2 or FL Error Code

    The P2 or FL error code (depending on model) indicates that the drain pan in the unit is full.

    Under normal operating conditions, the drain pan will not need to be emptied. The unit is designed with a slinger fan that is mounted above the drain pan. This fan picks up the water and slings it on to the condenser to help discharge heat. There is usually not enough water in the drain pan to cause the air conditioner to shut off.

    1. P2 or FL Displays and Keeps Coming Back

      If the P2 or FL error code is displaying on the air conditioner, remove the drain port cap and tilt the air conditioner to the back so the water runs out of the drain outlet.

      Drain Port 1

      If the unit is in COOL mode and the P2 or FL error code keeps coming back, this indicates that the room is very humid and the unit is working well.

      To drain the unit less frequently, turn the fan speed to LOW. This will slow the air circulation in the room and, thus, the amount of moisture the unit removes. Also, make sure all doors and windows are shut in order to create a controlled environment.

      If the unit is in DRY mode, the unit is running primarily to remove moisture from the air. Change to the setting to COOL mode to reduce the amount of moisture being removed from the room. Some models may allow a hose to be connected for continuous drain. Refer to the model-specific owner's manual for details.

    2. P2 or FL Displays & No Water Drains Out

      If the P2 or FL error code is displaying on the air conditioner, remove the drain port cap and tilt the air conditioner to the back so the water runs out of the drain outlet.

      Drain Port 2

      If no water is draining out when the air conditioner is tilted to the back, the unit will require a repair service. Please visit our Request a Repair page.

    3. P2 or FL Display Will Not Clear After Draining

      If after tilting the unit to the back to drain the P2 or FL error code remains, perform a reset on the air conditioner.

      To perform a reset:

      1. Unplug the air conditioner, leaving it unplugged for at least 10 seconds.

      2. Plug the air conditioner back in.

      3. Press the POWER button to turn the air conditioner back on.

      If the P2 or FL error code appears after performing a reset. The unit will require a repair service. Please visit our Request a Repair page.

    4. P2 or FL Displays & Unit Does Not Shut Off

      If the P2 or FL error code appears on the air conditioner's display but the unit continues to run. The unit will require a repair service, please visit our Request a Repair page.
