How can I fix my windows ?

The rattle will be loose screws/bolts in the linkages and maybe the regulator needs to be changed.
Remove the door trim and inspect everything. Tighten all bolts you can reach. Spray all of the points that can rattle with white lithium grease Test the window lifts before replacing the trim.

Ge window ac not very cold SOME TIMES

Window A/C units are SEALED systems. In order to achieve ICE COLD air from a Window A/C Unit:

1. Unplug your unit, disconnecting the electrical service from the unit.
2. Remove the filters from the front of the unit.
3. In a typical quart spray bottle, add 4 packets of UNSWEETENED Lemon KOOL-AID, fill 1/2 full with water, screw top onto bottle, shake well for 30 seconds, remove top and add water to near the top, screw top onto bottle and shake again to mix it very well.
4. Spray the INDOOR COILS with the above KOOL-AID solution until all of the solution has been used. The CITRUS Acid in the KOOL-AID will penetrate the coils and not only remove unwanted dirt, dust and debris; but it will also clean the bi-metal portions of that coil, making it SHINE.
5. Let the KOOL-AID set on those coils for a MINIMUM of 30 minutes.
6. While the KOOL-AID is doing its job, take the filters that were removed and rinse them under a faucet, ensuring the water is flowing from the back to the front of the filters in order to dislodge and remove as much debris as possible. It is acceptable to now spray the filters with either a solution of 50% water and 50% hydrogen peroxide OR simply spray with any household disinfectant/cleaner such as Lysol or Mr. Clean or similar product. Bump the filters against your hand to remove any additional water or household spray.
7. After at least 30 minutes, take that same spray bottle and fill it with clear water. Spray those coils once more with clear water to flush what ever may have been left within those tiny coils.
8. Add 1 drop of light weight oil to the fan motor and bearing.
9. Re-install the front cover of the unit; and then reinstall the filters.
10. Plug into an electrical outlet.
11. Turn the unit to the COOLING Mode and HI Speed Fan Mode.
Enjoy continued usage of your A/C unit.
This should be performed at least once each year in order achieve the highest EFFICIENCY of your system.

My 1998 sebring 6cyl makes a metal on metal noise on the side of my engine by the belts i tried greaseing all the pullys and i used belt noise sparay but it becomes lower and then it becomes higher ???...

sounds to me from the brief description like you have either a water pump rattling, or a timing chain coming slack. Is the noise coming from the alternator? Never grease pulleys, ever. also the stop squeak spray is bad for your belts. Don't know why they even sell it. If you listen carefully you may be able to pin point the rattle. Is this a tick tick tick, or a rattle rattle rattle? Does sound like a water pump rattle or timing chain slap though. Hope this helps

I have a gilmour xp30. The pump assembly will not pressurize/blow air out the exhaust port. (There seems to be a part rattling inside the cylinder). Can it be fixed?

there is an O-ring in the plunger tube that can slip of its channel seating if it becomes dried out. To put it back you need to disassemble the handle from unit. At base of handle is a lock that looks like a cross. It is difficult to turn because it has small protrusions at the ends that snap into holes in the collar. Once you turn them and the pop out the handle can be removed exposing the pump shaft. The O-ring is probably what you hear rattling and will be loose in bottom of tube. Just put it back into its grooved seat, slide plunger back into unit, rotate the x-lock till it snaps back into place and unit should work again. I have oiled o-ring but that did not last long and might get oil on plants. I now just spray some water down the top to lubricate the O-ring when it seems dry.

Can the outside area of a window ac be hosed out while it is in the window?

Hello, it is better to remove the unit from the window and place it out side, this way when you spray the water and you can be sure it does damage any components. When spraying the water dont use too much pressure.

The haeir window ac unit is tilted to the back but the water won't drain it is spraying out the front vents when running

From what you have described, it sounds like the drain pan under the unit is clogged. Cleaning and unclogging it, should solve the problem.In the meantime, discontinue using the AC until the problem is solved. As the water spraying out the vents, could cause and electrical short in the unit. That's in addition to getting water on your floor.

Leaking water

Is this a car? a home window unit?If it is a home window unit,take the air conditioner out of the window/wall,and take it out side and wash the unit out with water hose.Be careful not to bend the fins over on the coils,this will restrict air flow.If the coils are nasty,use a product called purple power.You can purchase this at auto parts.Use this purple power full strength in a spray bottle and spray all over the coils,and let it set for about 10 minutes,and rinse.Repeat as necessary .Fan the water hose nozzle out so not to flatten the fins on the coils.When you put ac unit back in wall/window,make sure the ac unit has a tilt on it leaning outward,and down,to assure the water drains outward on the ground. If the ac unit your talking about is in a car,you will have to get under the car,with a flash light and look up under the firewall.There will be a tube,or a plastic spout coming out of the ac box,for drainage of condensation.Take a skinney wire,and run it in ,and out of the tube or spout until the water starts pouring out like a waterfall.If it does not unclog,use air pressure.I hope this helps,let me know if it does.

Ac rattles after a few minutes of operation then shuts down for several minutes. then restarts and does the same thing over and over again. wat should i do?

Believe it or not, it's probably just dirty! With the unit off, apply a spray cleaner or a detergent solution, which can consist of water and a little dish or liquid laundry detergent, to wet the condenser coils, and spray clean with your garden hose. If it;s a window unit, it's probably best to take it out of the window for cleaning.
