what this indicate is that there is a meat up of wire from the connection from the power supply on the panel control switch ,

what you will have to do to fix up this problem first of all put off the power supply connected to the air condition then trace the wire down to the control switch panel then remove the born wire with care and replace with a better one of same side pleae while doing this you will have to be very careful with other wires connected to the panel with this the problem is solve .

Well, if you are concerned about the refrigerant leaking, you don't have to be,it's nontoxic- I wouldn't recommend breathing it and it could make you dizzy but not bad in any long term way. if you can handle turning it back on and it still cools, then you probably haven't lost any charge. I would check the filter next-maybe it got contaminated somewhere, or maybe there was some wire insulation getting hot. I wouldn't attempt repair- The store should exchange it for you

The cool air blowing out has a fishy smell.


That's the smell of foul water, make sure to frecuently empty the drip pan, wash it and desinfect it using a couple of drops of clorox or other desinfectant.

Has a funny smell when its on vie cleaned it and


The problem is that you have a leaking compressor or a leaking pipe on the device, because the odour is the odour of freon inside the compressor, which indicate you have a leaking compressor or pipe somewhere around the unit.

You will need to trace the copper pipe to see if there is any leakage on the pipe, if none, then the compressor is the problem, you will need to replace the compressor on the unit.

Take care.

The fan comes on, but air compressor wants to start but won't. Funny smell. Thanks Mike

It is likely the capacitor is faulty, when they go they usually heat up and burn hence the bad smell. If your unable to test the capacitor you can try replacing it with new. The capacitor at the compressor should state its value in micro farrads and a rating in voltage.

Not sure what the smell...smells like.  My guess is dirt or dust near the heating elements.  These will cause a burning smell.  Sometimes insects even get into the act..building webs.
You will have to clean that area out...sometimes a large blower or vac can dislodge the dust.
