Fresh air setting on Sharp afx-120nx

Just below the louvers there is a tab that can be pulled out or pushed in to recirculate the air or bring in air from the outside. I'd like to know whether the air is recirculated with the tab pulled out or pushed in.

I have a shortcut to a .pdf Adobe file that will link you to the operators manual for this model. Click on the link!

Page 14 tells you to push the button for fresh air, if I read it correctly.

Hope this helps,

How does plastic head cover pull off on a head split system Panasonic split system air conditioner

Look for 2/3 small plastic covers for screws just under the louver(s) one at each end of the air discharge opening and one in the centre (maybe). Pry these off gently with a small screwdriver and you will see the screws underneath. Remove the louver first to make access easier. There may also be a screw in the centre just above the louver.
Once all the screws are out, the cover should lift up easily from the bottom and then release from the top clips. If it doesn't come off easily, you may have missed a screw.

How do I pull out the air conditioner from the sleeve? Something is holding the middle of the louvers preventing me from pulling out the ac. Help

if its getting hung up on the middle of the louvers check to make sure nothing has pushed the louvers in ,in that spot. Also look inside after you have front cover off to make sure all screws are out and it can have a simple catch lock on the inside to avoid accidental slide out.

I have an older carrier a/c and i can't remember if the exhaust button is supossed to be pushed in or out during operation.

It does not matter where it is...
If you have it open it will push a bit of stale air out... and replace it with a bit of fresh air...

If you have it closed, then it just recirculates the inside air...which will give you a bit more efficient cooling as the outside air coming in is hotter then the inside air...(usually)

Should your exhaust vent be open or close when the air condition is turn on?

It does not mater....when the exhaust is open you will vent a bit of the stale air from the house and pull in a bit off fresh air...if it is closed, it just recirculates the existing inside air...

Vent Setting for he Haier ESA406J

You push it in to recirculate the air, the reason that you are getting that sound when you open up the vent is because you are sucking air from the outside as well as the inside of the home. Please rate

Get cooled fresh air from this ac unit

They are sized to always recirculate, some models do have a "vent" and when open, the vent brings in a percentage (by volume) of fresh air mixed with the air in the room.

Travel trailer a/c

Hi, W/D here.
Your unit does sound like it is low on refrigerant, but there may be another issue at play here also. Do you fave the ability to bring fresh air into the camper via the A/C? If so, were you bringing fresh air in when it froze up? Here's why I ask; Purely recirculated air has much more humidity in it than air that is coming in from the outside, even in high humidity areas. If your camper was closed up tight and recirculating air, your unit could very well freeze up. That explains why just running the fan fixed it. Contributing factors would be dirt on the coils, and low refrigerant, but ask yourself "Did we have this problem during the day when we were in and out (allowing fresh air in)?" If the A/C worked well when it was hotter, my opinion is that the issue is more of a moisture problem than a refrigerant problem. If you can allow some fresh air in the trailer by way of the A/C, I'd try that first, especially at night
Best regards, --W/D--

Does this A/C have the ability to take in air from outside?

Not sure but check to see if ahs a fresh air intake. This is a manual flap you have to set it yourself. If it does not say fresh air. You dont have one. Russ
