Question about Air Conditioners

Removed Styrofoam from A/C

The installation directions said remove all internal packaging. The EXTERNAL packaging had foam/styrofoam looking material and cardboard...so I assumed the styrofoam in the unit was internal packaging. Surely I can't be the only person who has done this. ?

Can I fix this?

And what is the internal packaging? The illustration is a joke.

Internal packagings, means in the box-- kits,--brackets--& foam packaging to prevent moving around during shipping or transportations ,and not the unit itself.

Its suppose to have some styro foam inside? or its suppose to be out?


Most window A/C units have styrofoam lining the air vent. Unless the manual says to remove a piece of foam when unpacking the unit, leave it there.

Is there supposed to be Styro Foam inside the ESA3089 AC unit?


I believe that the styrofoam is installed in the unit for shipping purposes. This is to prevent damage to the unit while in transit. Simply remove the foam and everything should work fine.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

What is internal packaging and what needs to stay? Frigidaire AC


It should be pretty apparent what comes off the unit. Pop the front cover by the filter and remove any styrofoam, paper and ties that might be there. Also make sure to remove anything that would prevent the coils from breathing properly. Its really simple, dont complicate it anymore than need be and worry yourself, everything that comes out is obvious.

Styrofoam inside of my Haier HWF05XC7


It should remain there it is the insulation seperating the condensing side from the evaporating side you may nve to reach in and move it around to prevent the destruction of the foam.

I makes a very loud noise


Had same problem with Ge AC. Unplug take out of window and remove all cover screws. Pull up on cover and pull cover off ac, Remove front cover as well there are a couple screws in the front. When looking at front of ac, hit the Styrofoam housing towards your left (towards control panel). Spin fan blade to make sure that it is clear. Plug in to double check. I put a couple quarters between the styrofoam and the metal housing, so it would not slide back. Also tape the styrofoam between the seams this helps with better cooling. Use some good tape nothing cheap. I used black duck tape. It took about 20 mins. The hardest part is re installing the AC.

I spoke with the Frigaire support line 706 374-4432. They said that the large piece of styrofoam, that extends from side to side and nearly top to bottom, is part of the unit. It should not be removed.
