Sir, I would like to clear the filter. I have a split AC. Can you please explain how to remove the filter from the AC Unit Mohideen

you have to remove the front cover to access the filter. The cover should be held in with push button retaining clips. After you remove the cover the filter resides in front of the evaporator.

How to use system as the dehumidifier. I lost the manual

The function of air conditioning IS the dehumidifier. It uses the process of refrigeration to condense water, like a water glass with ice cubes, pulls moisture from the air. The key is are you reheating the air somehow.
This is why the A/C is needed for defrost and defog in your car.

Just turn the unit on and monitor the collected water, emptying when needed.

Samsung window air conditioner model aw05ncm7 icing up not cooling

After I opened the front of the unit and discovered it full of ice, I left the unit off until it defrosted, so to speak, after the ice had melted, I turned the unit back on to see what happened. It is working fine now, I'm not sure why it iced up, if this is normal or not, but after it melted the problem was solved.

DE500P Dehumidifier: Does not dehumidify even though set to dehumidify. Fan will turn on when RH above setting, and stay on, since humidity doesn't drop. Filter is clean & pail empty.

Locate and touch the cooils located, usually, above the condensate collection pan, ("pail empty"). If the coils are not cold, or cool to the touch, the unit has lost its charge of refrigerant. This would explain why the unit fan is working, but there is no condensate, as there is no coolant (charge) to cool the coils and "pull" the hunidityout of the air.
