Question about Frigidaire FAX054P7A Wall/Window Air Conditioner
The unit works great. It's a couple years old. However, when the cold air kicks off as it reaches the right temp, it emits a terrible smell. I've read alot about the drip tray or something having to do with the water being plugged. I cannot figure out how to get to it and their website manuals are not linking right so I can check which screws I need to take out to get to the problem. How can I resolve this odor issue? It's unbearable.
I had a similar problem with an 8,000 BTU room air conditioner. I originally thought the cause of the smell was a rubber gasket, but after opening the unit up I found that it was just dirt (plus what seemed like 100s of dead bugs in various states of decomposition). I carefully removed as many screws as I could to get at the bottom tray, which I scraped with a flat head screwdriver and wiped with a rag. I ultimately found that the biggest source of the odor was the outside condenser coils, which I proceeded to squirt down with a garden hose. The entire process took 2.5 hours and definitely was a pain, but at least now I can run the unit without gagging on the smell.
