Thats just a ground wire that connected on the bottom tray of the a.c. to the case to prevent shock. The fan blades in the back part of the unit has debris stopping the blades from rotating or the blades are jammed aganist the back shroud due to not inserted in straight .

Whars the correct way of cleaning and drying my activewear?

Top wear or underwear are pretty much the same. Machine wash, cold water, high efficiency detergent on a setting for synthetics.

For underwear use fabric conditioner and air dry, with a tumble dry when almost dry, on a low heat, warm setting.

For outerwear dry on a hanger and spray twice with silicone water repellant spray allowing a couple of hours between sprays. Make particular attention to seams.

Clean the cpn14xc9

I think you are asking how to clean the coils on this unit. I would not advise taking it apart unless you really know what you are doing. If the coils are dirty just buy a good can of coil cleaner spray. Let sit for a while and brush the coils with a soft bristle brush. Tooth brush works good. Don't be forceful and bend the fins, it will restrict the air flow and reduce the efficiency of the unit. After you clean it with the spray and brush spray with warm water to remove the remaining coil cleaner from the coils. You may need to repeat this process more than once. Good luck, hope I helped you.

There is mold inside of the air vent in my air conditioners how do i clean it

A mixture of 10% bleach to 90% water, should do the trick. Be sure the Master ON/OFF Switch is OFF and the unit is unplugged from the outlet, before starting.You can spray the solution on (if you have a spray bottle) and then use a rag of sponge to wipe it clean. Be sure to wear rubber gloves when doing this. And rinse with clear water. Allow the unit to dry completely, before starting it back up.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Remove it from the window,just slide it out from the shell,make sure there are no retaining screws,remove the front from the unit,and set it on a table outside,use a water hose and spray all debris from inside the unit,just remember not to spray hard stream of water directly into the coils on the evaporator,or condenser,you may have to remove some debris by hand if it is to large for the water hose to remove,make sure drain holes are clear,and let drip dry for about 30 minutes,then tilt unit one way,or another to finish draining the water,coils can be cleaned gently,just make sure nothing is restricting the air flow threw them,and make sure the fan has no objects in it`s way,then place the unit back in the shell in the window and you are ready for another hot hot summer.

Can i clean it?

If you water wash the condenser section (radiator) you must take measures to protect the fan motor from the water. Air flow across the condenser does affect the operating efficiency of the air conditioner. Cleaning should be done opposite to the normal air flow across the condenser.

Air conditioner cleaning procedure

If its a window air conditioner, take it our of the window, then take it outside unplugged. Spray the coils with a garden hose at low water pressure. You don't want too much water pressure cause it can bend the fins. Also try not to get the electrical components wet. Spray the water strait into the coils at a 90 degree angles to push the dirt free on the inside of the condensor( outside coil).
