Probably have to have the coils or the evaporator section cleaned up. the smell can be mildew accumulation.You have to check the coils probably some mildew there.

Look for where the condensation drains, it could be stopped up. If it drains into a pan, check it for mold & mildew. Even if it is a wet type to cool the compressor, drainage still needs to happen. Some times it can get moldy if the water sits.

Horrible, gym socks kinda smell coming out. how can i fix this?


Try cleaning the filter and you can buy some coil cleaner for the inside coil that doesn't have to be rinsed off. It is supposed to clean and deodorize. Might as well clean the outside coil while you are at it. You can also remove the unit from the window and take the case off to clean inside.

HEAT PUMP/AIR CONDITIONER UNIT SMELLS ONLY WHEN AIR IS ON


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.

Fujitsu wall mounted air conditioner.


 during Cooling and Dry modes, if the unit is used under conditions of
lower temperature (18C)  the heat-exchanger may freeze, leading to water leakage and other damage.
If the unit is used for long periods under high-humidity conditions, condensation may form on the surface of the indoor
unit, and drip onto the floor or other objects underneath. (About 80% or more)



Increase Temp to 20 and also run coil dry cycle,
