Condenser Coil Cleaning Condenser Coil Cleaner


One of the most important things to maintaining a highly efficient Air Conditioner is keeping the condenser coil clean. To make your condenser coil cleaning as easy as possible you need to know what to use to clean your coil.

There are a number of different things that can be used to clean your condenser coil. It does not matter whether you are cleaning a central air conditioning unit or a window air conditioning unit. What does matter is the type and location of the coil and the amount of dirt that is in the coil.

When looking at the type of coil cleaner to be used, make sure that the chemical being used is compatible with the type of metal that the coil is made out of. Some chemicals and certain metals do not get along well and should be avoided.

Also, if you condenser coil is severely plugged then a foaming type coil cleaner is a must have item. If the condenser coil just needs to be washed down and is not completely plugged then a mild detergent may be just the tool needed to do the job.

For many units that have regular cleanings, a good quality detergent similar to what you use to wash your car, will work just fine. The main object of the cleaning is to remove the dust, dirt, and grime from the coil to promote better air flow through the coil. If the coil is just plugged with grass or dandelion seeds them a simple hosing off with the water hose may do the trick.

If a foaming cleaner is need to clean a neglected or very dirty coil then look up your local heating and air conditioning supply house and purchase a coil cleaner specifically for cleaning condenser coils. Most of these products are for professional use only and care is needed when using and handling these products.

Condenser coil cleaning can be done by the homeowner if proper care is taken and it will keep you air conditioning unit running great whether it is a central air conditioning unit or a window air conditioning unit. Once you know what to do and how to do it you may find that you will be cleaning your condenser coil a number of times a year to insure top performance from your unit.

I bought a Krups Household Type Waffle Maker at a thrift store. It looks new, but doesn't have any instructions with it on how much batter to use or how to clean it. I got a recipe online and it was great...


I think this is why people make pancakes. =) Cleaning the waffle iron is a real pain. My waffle maker looks exactly like the one you have pictured. Mine also came with no instructions because its my fiance's. As far as how much batter to use, you should use a ladle and through trial and error figure out how much is the best amount. I would guesstimate approximately 1/4 c. For cleaning the overspill, from what I have read online, everyone says to unplug the iron (obviously) and wait until the waffle iron has completely cooled before cleaning. I have cleaned the back of the unit (where the coils are, which unfortunately got flooded with batter the first time) with a damp kitchen brush, damp sponge, and paper towels. Its messy and time consuming to clean up. You can get in the coils better with an old toothbrush or a very small bottle cleaner (like the kind you would buy to clean cake decorator tips). I just use warm water to remove the batter/gunk. I use a sponge (damp with warm water) to clean the baking plates. I towel dry everything after its clean, and clean the outside with a little windex so it stays nice and shiny. Good luck! I also recommend making lots of extra waffles and freezing them, so you can avoid as much waffle clean-up as possible. ;) You can heat them up in the toaster like Eggos. They stay good in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Freezing of low pressure pipe 24 BTU


A line or coil freezing is a sign of restricted air flow or low on freon. Make sure the fan that circulates the cold air is working and the filter and coil at the filter are clean. A dirty coil can be cleaned with coil cleaner and a water hose. You will need to remove the unit and take it outside. (window units only) You can buy a bottle of coil cleaner at any hardware store. Follow the instructions on the bottle but basically you spray the coil until soaked wait 5 minutes and flush it clean with water from a hose. Repeat if necessary. Try not to get water and cleaner on the controls. Be careful water will be trapped in the unit you may want to tip it toword the back for 10 minutes or so and if possible let it set outside to dry. Reinstall the unit and put a clean filter on it and give it a try. If ice forms again it is low on freon and will require a repairman to fix it. Freon is a restricted item and you have to have a license to buy it. good luck..

Coil replacement


I'm not an expert but assuming you ordered the coils for your dryer your dryer must have them. I just finshed repairing my kenmore gas dryer after about 10 minutes the gas would shut off. This is becasue the coils that are on top of the gas line before the ignigter were defective. The coils control the gas valve and when my dryer got hot the coil being defective would close the valve. There are 2 coils a 2 prong and a 3 prong. Remove the front panel to gain access to the bottom of the dryer from there you will see your coils about as round as a quarter and 10 or so high. unscrew the screws holding down the retainer and undue the electrical clip. reverse for the install. good luck!

My duo therm ducted ac not blowing cold air...has a flaky crusty black stuff on the inside coils of return air side?


you need to clean this section of coils badly. Get a plant or weed sprayer. go to a a/c parts supply store and get some coil cleaner. Tell the staff that you need something to clean the coils on your a/c coil. Tell them what kind of a/c you have abd they will assist you in the purchase of the proper chemicals. Make sure to read directions for the use of the chemical and also wear all necessary protection equipment, i.e. safety glasses, gloves. Follow the instructions on the chemical as how to clean your coils. Once the coils are cleaned you still may need to have the pressures checked on your unit. It won't help to check the pressures on your unit when coils are dirty since that will give you false readings. So you need to start by cleaning the coils. Good luck Dave

Pressure keeps dropping on my jaguar boiler, no leaks in house but hot water coming from overflow outside


hi In most air-conditioning systems, the condenser unit is located outside the house and is prone to accumulate dirt and debris from trees, lawn mowing, and airborne dust. The condenser has a fan that moves air across the condenser coil. You must clean the coil on the intake side, so, before you turn off the power to the air conditioner, check to see which direction the air moves across the coils. Here's how to clean the condenser:
Step 1: Cut down any grass, weeds, or vines that have grown around condenser unit; they could be obstructing airflow.

Step 2: Clean condenser with commercial coil cleaner, available at refrigerator supply stores. Instructions for use are included. Flush coil clean (do not use hose); let dry.
Step 3: Clean fins with soft brush to remove accumulated dirt. You may have to remove protective grille to reach them. Do not clean fins with garden hose, as water could turn dirt into mud and compact it between fins. Clean fins very carefully: They're made of light-gauge aluminum and are easily damaged. If fins are bent, straighten them with fin comb, sold at most appliance parts stores. A fin comb is designed to slide into spaces between fins. Use it carefully to avoid damaging fins.Step 4: Check concrete pad on which condenser rests to make sure it's level. Set carpenters' level front to back and side to side on top of unit. If pad has settled, lift pad with pry bar or piece of 2-by-4, then force gravel or rocks under concrete to level it.

Air conditioner cleaning procedure


If its a window air conditioner, take it our of the window, then take it outside unplugged. Spray the coils with a garden hose at low water pressure. You don't want too much water pressure cause it can bend the fins. Also try not to get the electrical components wet. Spray the water strait into the coils at a 90 degree angles to push the dirt free on the inside of the condensor( outside coil).
