Not sure what model you have but most slide out of their cabinet after removing the front plastic grill that holds vents. Front should snap loose, but be sure no screws hold front in place. As always use care and unplug while working on your unit. Take care not to wet electric controls or motor windings. Thanks

How to clean sunbeam window air conditioner 5000 BTU


To ensure you are achieving absolute BEST energy efficiency, I would strongly encourage you to take the following steps:
1. Unplug your unit, disconnecting the electrical service from the unit.
2. Remove the filters from the front of the unit.
3. In a typical quart spray bottle, add 4 packets of UNSWEETENED Lemon KOOL-AID, fill 1/2 full with water, screw top onto bottle, shake well for 30 seconds, remove top and add water to near the top, screw top onto bottle and shake again to mix it very well.
4. Spray the INDOOR COILS with the above KOOL-AID solution until all of the solution has been used. The CITRUS Acid in the KOOL-AID will penetrate the coils and not only remove unwanted dirt, dust and debris; but it will also clean the bi-metal portions of that coil, making it SHINE.
5. Let the KOOL-AID set on those coils for a MINIMUM of 30 minutes.
6. While the KOOL-AID is doing its job, take the filters that were removed and rinse them under a faucet, ensuring the water is flowing from the back to the front of the filters in order to dislodge and remove as much debris as possible. It is acceptable to now spray the filters with either a solution of 50% water and 50% hydrogen peroxide OR simply spray with any household disinfectant/cleaner such as Lysol or Mr. Clean or similar product. Bump the filters against your hand to remove any additional water or household spray.
7. After at least 30 minutes, take that same spray bottle and fill it with clear water. Spray those coils once more with clear water to flush what ever may have been left within those tiny coils.
8. Add 1 drop of light weight oil to the fan motor and bearing.
9. Re-install the front cover of the unit; and then reinstall the filters.
10. Plug into an electrical outlet.
11. Turn the unit to the COOLING Mode and HI Speed Fan Mode.
Enjoy continued usage of your A/C unit.
This should be performed at least once each year in order achieve the highest EFFICIENCY of your system.

Tip

Lower the cost of your Central Air Conditioning Bill


Dirt is the enemy and your defense is simple and inexpensive.

Central air conditioning units are simple machines which take the warm air from inside your home and put it outside. There are two parts that do the bulk of this 'Heat Transfer", they are the inside coil and the outside coil. A coil that is covered with dirt does not transfer heat very well.

The outside coil is the outer layer of the unit located outdoors. First, shut off the power to the unit. Clear any weeds or decorative plants away from the machine. The machine should have a good 18 to 24" of clear space around it. More is better. If possible, nothing but blue sky should be above the unit. Although there are special detergents used by commercial contractors, I have found that in most residential locations, using a simple garden hose to wash the spaces between the aluminum fins is adequit. If you find that the fins are blocked, you should have a professional coil cleaning. While you are at the unit, take the time to straighten any fins that are bent over. Again, if a large area is bent and you find that you are damaging the fins, call a professional as they have special tools.

The inside coil is not so easy to access. For this reason, a high quality indoor air filter is recommended. Many people use carboard encased fiberglass filters, which cost about $1.00 each. Much better to go with a pleated media filter, even better, one maked high efficiency. Change it whe the surface is covered with a fine, even layer of dirt. Some homes will require monthly changing, most will need it every 3 months and a few will only need it once every 6 months. The Glass Fiber filters only catch the very big pieces, allowing the small particles of dust to flow into you indoor coil. WHile operating in the air conditioning mode, the inside coil is wet. This is because part of the process of removing heat involves removing humidity. WHen the fine dirt mixes with the moisture, a fine mud starts to build. If allowed to continue, the deminished air flow will result in poor performance and will require a professional cleaning that can take as much as 12 to 16 hours and involve extra charges for equipment involved in protecting the environment. In a worst case senerio, low air flow can cause the compressor to fail. Those 'Expensive" filters really are a bargain.

Cooling gas is missing. Call some AC service in near to fill it, ask more of them for price. Do not switch it on until you solve this to prevent higher damage.

Water collecting on driver's side floor of my 2002 mitsubishi gallant


If your car is using / loosing water.... or the air smell sweet in the car vents then heater core is leaking. If your not loosing water from the radiator and doee not smell like that sweet anti-freeze smell then your airconditioner evaporator drain is clogged. You can attempt to clear the evaporator drain by locating the drain outlet and shoving a small soild stranded wire up through the drain vent. Make sure you have the blower motor and the air-conditioner on when trying to clear the evaporator drain. Be careful NOT to shove the solid strand wire into the evaporator coil while trying to clear the drain. The only other option is to remove the AC system evaporator lower cover and clear the drain which takes hours and hours of work.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

How do you clean the coil, and clear condensation lines?


You can buy some cleaner at a heating and air supply that doesn't have to be rinsed off to clean the evaporator coil. You just spray it on the indoor coil and normal condensation takes care of rinsing. I use a shop vac to clear the condensate drain. I hook it the drain line outside and let it pull all the muck out. A little Clorox in the condensate pan every now and then will help keep it clear(1 to 2 tablespoons). You can also buy cleaner for the outdoor coil and can rinse the coil with a hose. It's best to rinse from the inside to outside.

Just opened up the camper to find inside soaked on inside of unit


Check the condensate drain port for blockage and clear the blockage.
If the cover was on upside down, it is possible that it was impeding the air entering the coil.....this could have caused the coil to frost up....during your time to shut the unit off and inspect, the frost/ice started thawing and dripping into your trailer.

Here are the main items you want to address:
1. Ensure the drain is free and clear.
2. Ensure the air filter is clean and properly in place.
3. Ensure the evaporator coil is clean.
4. Ensure the covers are properly in place. ;-)

I hope you find this information to be very helpful to you moving forward. Let me know if you have any questions. Please don't forget to leave a rating for me. :-)

I have condensation dripping off the inside case of my domectic caravan air conditioner


Clean the air filter and blow the fins off to stop this problem dirt will cause it to draw water so pull the cover blow out the air cleaner and blow out the coils inside andon the roof this shoud take care of your problems. IF it does not clear up try cleaning the drain hole in the top of the unit by removing the outter cover and make sure the drain tube isclean.

What is internal packaging and what needs to stay? Frigidaire AC


It should be pretty apparent what comes off the unit. Pop the front cover by the filter and remove any styrofoam, paper and ties that might be there. Also make sure to remove anything that would prevent the coils from breathing properly. Its really simple, dont complicate it anymore than need be and worry yourself, everything that comes out is obvious.
