If practical - the best way to clean a unit like you're describing would be by using 'air pressure,' to blow the dust out of the coils, squirrel cage, and in and around the fan motor and compressor.

Then take a water hose and wash both coils being real careful to "not" get water in the fan motor. Note: the compressor is sealed so you don't have to worry about it, but try to be careful and keep water out of the controls/wires (you might even use plastic to protect them).

Also, be sure you install a 'clean/new' air filter in the unit itself. This filter goes in front of the evaporator coil which is the coil that gets cold. The other coil - the condenser coil (the one that gets hot) does not need a filter.

good luck!

Haier window ac constant red light? No label next to red light. Turns on and off fine. Cleaned filter, no change. couple years old. Still cools down the room but not as cold as it used to. Help?


Sounds like the unit is just dirty. The AC pulls air through coils and contains dirt, pollen, grease and all type of pollutants. These contaminants will cling to the coils, reducing the AC ability to transfer heat.

Here's a great YouTube video explaining how to properly clean a window AC. How to Clean Window Air Conditioner

AC units should be cleaned every year (including the whole house units), to maintain their ability to cool efficiently.

The inside front when you open the panel has snow ice formed inside. Is this normal and I have never noticed it before or what is wrong. After we let it unfreeze then it will work fine then freeses again.


Hello, the evaporator coil will frost over for one of 2 reasons, either lack of airflow or low refrigerant charge. start by checking the air filter and clean if dirty, also I would recommnd spraying a coil cleaner on the evaporator coil and clean it. If the unit appears clean then most likely the unit has a leak and will need to be recharged with refrigerant.

The unit is freezing up and leaking alot of water


Hello, first thing is check the condition of the filter on the front of the unit, if it is dirty wash it and let it dry then reinstall it. Also, it is a good idea to clean the evaporator coil with a can of coil cleaner that you can pick up at any heating and cooling store. Just spray cleaner on evaporator coil and let it dry. If this does not solve the problem tjen the unit might be undercharged and will need a hvac tech to recharge it

In order to add freon you must add a piercing valve to the low side of the system since most window units dont have service fittings

Do I need to clean coils in haier hwro6xc7 air conditioner


You always need to keep both coils clean on your AC.

The evaporator coil (where room air is drawn in and through a filter) - is easy to keep clean - 'just keep the filter changed on a regular basis and you will probably never need to actually clean the evaporator coil. Occasionaly you might need to brush the coil with a brush or something - but this is not a big concern.

The condenser coil (where hot air blows from) is even 'easier,' for you don't have to mess with a filter, just keep the coil clean. You can occasionally pull the unit (when needed) and wash this coil with a water hose. In reality this coil will not get very dirty very fast - although it will (over time) acquire some dirt/dust, but as I say - it is pretty easy to keep clean. Note: Condensing units (split systems) that sit in a yard will get much dirtier much faster than window/thru the wall units such as yours, but you still have to keep a eye on the coil.

A good rule of thumb - is to change the filter (in front of the evaporator coil) - monthly.

As for the condenser coil (where hot air blows from) you can easy see it and just need to keep it clean, with no set (usually) time to do so.

good luck!

My Haier 5,200-BTU Window Air Conditioner keeps freezing up. how do I remedied this?


You need to clean the unit outside(take it out of the window) with a water hose because it is dirty inside( you have to remove screws on cover and take cover off), be sure to cover the electronic control board with plastic so you don't get it wet.Clean fins on front and back with water hose and inside .

Window unit air conditioner


Sounds like a full cleanning job or the drain line is plugging up. First , check for A 10* lean toward the back of the unit for proper drainnage, 2- check for good air flow thru the front coils--(dirty filter --dirty coil and last ,add some clorox bleach all across the front coil while off>)
