Question about General Electric AEE18DM Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Need to replace a 1960s General Electric Thinline through-the-wall air conditioner with a new unit. How do I remove the chassis from the sleeve? Is there an installation manual available for these old models?

    The AC unit is NOT an AEE18DM. I don't know what model number it is, and don't think it much matters, and FixYa just stuck this model number on the question for some reason.

Is this one of the big square shaped units? If it is, I think I can help. If it's in a wall, you'll have to take it out. Then remove the screws from the bottom on both sides. The cabinet SHOULD lift off. That's right..... LIFT off.
The chassis WILL NOT slide out from either end. I have one of these that is in a window. It still works. I saw your question and went and took a look at it, and this is how I think it comes out. If you still have the plastic vent grilles that go on the inside over the fan and evaporator, I'd be interested in buying them if you aren't going to keep them, as mine are in bad shape. The one that goes over the evaporator is an off white beige color and has three round vents that can be turned to direct air flow. The piece that goes in front of the fan is a dark brown color. Please let me know if this IS how to remove the chassis, as I may have to do it myself someday. I won't as long as the thing keeps working.

Get rid of the old stuff,too big to be used
Newer unit can't be inside the old sleeve as you call it

Just install the new unit how you see fit, to seal
it up

5000BTU is too small

A 7,200,8,000 or 10,000 BTU is the same size & about
the same price.

Need to remove through wall fedder air conditioner


If it has a sleeve, just remove the front cover and give a little yank on the unit and it will start sliding out of the sleeve. Unplug the unit first, and the unit will slide all of the way out of the sleeve and you can just set it on the floor or wherever.

I have a 27 inch wall sleeve can a 26 inch friedrich unifit work?or do I need a 27 inch unit


the a/c units keep getting smaller, when unit replacement is slightly smaller , the extra space can be filled with a piece of plywood or rigid foam insulation with a thin layer of plywood, any edges seen from inside can be covered with trim, make sure the wood covers entire bottom layer of sleeve to properly support. or just find the larger unit if you can. hope this helps.

Is this the right unit? Can it be used with a sleeve?


If a sleeve came with it then it should be used unless you are replacing a unit and the existing sleeve is properly mounted. Then sleeve should have a slight backward angle so that condensation does not drain into the living space.
