No. This will cause the oil in the compressor to move into other parts of the system where it's not supposed to be. This will cause the compressor to lock up. Also, some units use the condensate water to help cool the condenser. Sideways will kill it.

SOURCE: can I install the unit in the window sideways?

Not really unless you can divertthe hot air from the back side to the outside and and the cool air and intake to the inside, you could do it with some clear tape and some plastic sheeting , but better to build a frame to hold it outside facing in two L brackets then tape it up with some thick plastic.

We have a Goldstar airconditioner model GWHD6500R . Can we get a way to install it in a window that opens sideways?Right to left. Thanks mdye46@yahoo.com


Sure. You *must* install it horizontally as it is designed, however.

To fill the gap above the unit, you will need a panel cut-to-size. Otherwise, the hot air will recirculate back into the room.

Window too small


Not really, the condenser must be able to draw air from the outside and must stay outside, sideways the A/C will not function properly.

Does this need water?


window unit air conditioners do not need water, in fact the produce condensation that will drip outside the unit, that is why most manufactures say to install your window unit with a little bit of tilt toward the outside portion.

GoldStar model GWHD5000


Make sure that the unit is properly mounted in the opening (I take it it's in a window) and that it is level or at least not tipping inward as in the outside being higher than the inside. If unsure about how to mount it properly, consult your owners manual. Your installation should be reasonably close to the illustrations.

I was wondering if you can install the air conditioner vertical instead of horizontal since the window is too small


NOOOOO. The compressor in it is mounted and can only sit one way. If you install it sideways it will burn up the compressor
