No - opening the vent will allow unconditioned outside air into the space and add to the humidity load.

Think of it like your car's A/C - when you put the controls to "Max A/C" the system recycles just the air inside the car and doesn't use any outside air. When the control is set to normal A/C, some outside (fresh) air is brought in.

The same thing is true for a window A/C unit. Keeping the vent closed will help the unit de-humidify and cool the air more quickly.

I need to remove the blower motor from my Emerson Quiet Kool model 1350, how do I do this..


First open the control panel and remove all wires of your fan motor from the control switch and the capacitor. Remove also the compressor wires. Unscrew all panels and move the evaporator farther from the mounting base Pull-out the fan motor assembly with the panels. Unscrew the blower, fan blade, and them from the assembly. Unscrew the motor and now it is free.

Emerson Air Conditioner #10HW42K through wall


First off, my model # is Emerson Quiet Kool 10HW42K. No it is not yet solved, however I am reaching out to a number of sources. Was hoping to get a simple answer since it is not a "repair" problem, but rather a "replacement problem". I am looking for another AC that will fit the original sleeve.

Humidity


An air conditioner of this type always has standing water sitting in the base-tray of the machine as it's running. They're designed to work that way. However, if the unit leans slightly in toward the inside of your house, then the water in the tray can be deeper than it should and/or add extra humidity to the inside air. These units are designed to be installed so that they lean slightly to the _outside_ of the window or wall-hole where they are mounted. This way the standing water drains off to the ground outside and isn't so deep on the inside of the unit that it adds too much humidity to the inside air. Check the mounting of this unit to make sure it leans slightly toward the outside. Also verify that any notch or drain hole on the outside end of the unit, intended to guide draining water, is not clogged with debris (which could also cause the standing water in the unit to be at too high a level). Also verify that the "vent" is closed, if this unit is equipped with said vent opening. An open vent panel can allow humid outside air inside as the unit is running. Hope this helps! ;)

Emerson Quiet Kool Drips Water into the house


depends on the unit. you will probably have to slide it out of its case and clean the outside part . there should be a hose that goes from the inside to the outside for the water to go out. this hose may be clogged, trapping the water inside. as i always say a picture of the unit always helps so i can identify it and tell you what to do to try and fix the problem. email the pics to eyg2181@yahoo.com
