My ac window units are not draining water and creating mold in my house


Check the drain tube between the evaporator side to the back of the unit. It may have a packing plug installed. If there is one remove it or clean the drain tube.

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.

Fan WORKS FINE but has lots of dust and mold inside that needs to be removed,and I've taken the screws out, all except the one near the base, located right above the LABEL. This screw, a Philips head,...


there had to be reason the Fan was not to be disassembled .... yes you will need to buy a new unit... MOLD as you is bad thing. If you're allergic to Mold. you be hard pressed to disinfect the whole unit. for sure you will miss some of the Mold. It will come back.. The Mold is due to too much moisture/ Humidity. on top of getting new Fan unit you will need to get Dehumidifier, to remove the moisture in the room...
If dust collects in the new fan. at least you will able to clean out the dust.... if some of the screws look like a star and not a phillips, you can find 1 at hardware store. take a picture of it with your phone. show it the hardware girl or guy. they will be able show what you need to Disassembling the Fan. good luck shopping list
1. Dehumidifier
2. new fan
3. take a picture of not normal screw, when you need to disassembling fan gain.

Hi,
Many newer units are made to retain the water and splash it onto the condenser coil... Clorox in the water will kill the mold and not hurt anything... You can carefully drill a hole if you want..

Mold inside unit


There is a product on the market that will prevent mold from growing in your air conditioner.You should be able to find it at a refrigeration supply house.Just take the product and place it in the area where the water collects.There is also a product to help you clean your unit of contaminants on the heat exchanger surfaces.It simply sprays on,and can be later rinsed off.Its usually a straight forward matter to remove the cover from an air conditioner.Usually no more than 4 screws.Some units will slide out of their covers,after removing the screws that keep them locked in place,and some covers simply lift off from the rest of the unit once the screws are removed.In either case the rest of the unit minus the cover will remain intact,and can be cleaned.Cleaning the unit will almost always make it work better too,so your killing two birds with one stone.

Mr. Slim MS12- Mold Problem


I have had to clean mine on a yearly basis. On mine once I have the cover off, I can remove a couple more screws, disconnect the baffle motor and the drain connection and pull the drain pan off to gain access to the barrel fan. The first time I cleaned it with a small bottle brush and bleach water. I scrubbed each fin individually, alot of work! I used a pressure bottle(for the garden with wand) to rinse the fan. Then the next year I used a Shark Steamer to clean and kill the mold, still alot of work but easier then scrubbing. I am going to try rinsing it more often with white vinegar to kill the mold.

Cleaning


On the backside of the fan at the botton is a little screw cover. Remove the cover then remove the screw. On the backside top of the fan right under the handle are two screws remove both of them. Gently pry the sides apart, about half way down on both sides are two molded clips, you can use a small flat blade screw driver to help seperate the cover.
