Its suppose to have some styro foam inside? or its suppose to be out?


Most window A/C units have styrofoam lining the air vent. Unless the manual says to remove a piece of foam when unpacking the unit, leave it there.

The styrofoam inside the unit is covered in black mold. I was wondering what i should do if anything.


Any mold in any part of the unit is not good, especially if its in the Styrofoam, Styrofoam has pores and hides the mold spores well, it would be dangerous to actually run the unit with mold spores as it can travel inside the house. Unfortunately companies that make these units don't make these units mold proof, why should they? that's how they make their money. I have three units, one has always given me problems with mold. It always comes back. The other two are always clean. My best advice, get rid of the unit and get another one or get a free estimate on Central air and heat. Mold is very dangerous and is not worth the risk, it can cause a number of medical issues.

I HAVE STYROFOAM INSIDE THE AIR CONDITION DO I NEED TO REMOVE IT


Is it packing or is it insulation? If packing, as in you just bought this unit and have never used it, remove it.

Hello,Lilo The styrofoam pack MUST stay in place.When in operation the air tempature is so cold the unit will condensate(create water)if not insluated.Your unit would LEAK all over the place.The blower fan is a PLASTIC composit and should not rust.

IS THERE SUBPOST TO BE STYROFOAM INSIDE THE AIR CONDITION, IT IS BEHIND THE FAN WHEEL, AND ON BOTH SIDES INSIDE UNIT WATER RUNS OUT THE FRONT, NOW UNIT DOES NOT TRUN ON. THANKS, DEE


Yes to the Styrofoam , If there is water running out the front of the system your drain is blocked and or the system  needs to be removed to inspect the drain tray and clean out if required.(serviced). As for it not turning on , check that the fuse isn't blown as the water may have shorted the controls wires and blown the fuse

Had same problem with Ge AC. Unplug take out of window and remove all cover screws. Pull up on cover and pull cover off ac, Remove front cover as well there are a couple screws in the front. When looking at front of ac, hit the Styrofoam housing towards your left (towards control panel). Spin fan blade to make sure that it is clear. Plug in to double check. I put a couple quarters between the styrofoam and the metal housing, so it would not slide back. Also tape the styrofoam between the seams this helps with better cooling. Use some good tape nothing cheap. I used black duck tape. It took about 20 mins. The hardest part is re installing the AC.
