Installing a window A.C. unit by maytag

Installing a window A.C. unit
I have an old house with old windows. The bottom sash of the storm windows I installed are higher than the bottom of the open windows.
Does it matter what I use to raise up the front of the AC unit? Last year I installed the AC unit tipped backward but I still had a lot of condensate coming inside.I was hoping to find an outlet to attach a hose to so that I could funnel the water away...no outlet.

    Window clips


    how do i get the old glass clips off that are glued to the window

    Window tilts forward when going up


    The forward track channel has either rusted out, broken, or the sash clips to help keep the window level broke. We have seen all the above, but most likely is the sash clips that glue onto the lower window broke. The door panel will have to be removed, the old clips, heated with a HOT heat gun and removed, and new ones installed. Pretty easy fix with the right equip.

    I need to take off the door panel on my 2003 pontiac grand am because the window has come out of the track. Is there anything special I need to know before I do this?


    The problem with theses windows is the poor design. You will have no problem getting the door panel off but if you do not know what you are doing then dont do it yourself. Theses windows are retained by either a sash at the bottom or by a bolt with a metal rail at the bottom. If it is the one with the rail you wil need to check the front track bolt for tightness. If it is the one with the sashes, then you must remove the old ones and use a special adhesive to install the new ones. The door panel should be simple to remove. Just go slow.

    A/C unit clatters very loud


    90% of the problem with window shakers is the window that they are installed in is loss in the frame. When the unit is installed in the window you need to make sure that you install vibration eliminaters. This can be as simple as placing the foam strips between the unit and the bottom of the window you raised to install the unit through or as complex as removing the unit from its casing and reinstalling the casing, making sure all parts that touch the raised window as well as the side extensions have a cushion between them. If the clatter persists gently tap on the sash to see if you get any vibration, if so you need to insert slivers of wood between the sash and the moulding. This should solve you problem. The only thing you should hear is the compressor going on and off and the whosh of the fan.

    Need drain tube


    Measure the outside diameter of the vinyl tubing and then go to the hardware store and purchase a foot or two of soft copper tubing of an inside diameter that will just slide over the vinyl tubing and extend it for you. To attach the copper tube to the window sash you can use some crazy glue that is designed for both metal and what ever substance your sash is made from [usually either wood or stone].
