Mold in Fujitsu 18 c1

There is mold and dust inside the entire unit and especially at the swing/fan. Does anyone knows how to clean it without taking the entire indoor unit of the wall? Are there any detergents I can spray inside?

    I noticed a foul smell and there is mold where the air comes out and dust everywhere. Aside from cleaning the dust and mold off the visable parts, what else can I do? Where is the mold coming from?

Have had machine for 6 years.  Mold is an issue.  Occatioinally I clean out the drawer and behind the grey rubber seal with vinegar.  After a load is washed, I dry off seal and leave door slightly open.  Occationally I also wash a load of nothing but bleach.   Hope this helps.

On the outdoor unit the fan should not be running, on the indoor unit the fan should be running. If you then check the outdoor unit with fan not running, you should be able to hear clearly that the compressor is actually working. If this is all correct, it is possible that your fourway reverse valve is seeping and needs to be replaced.

Check the disconnect switch and make sure that both the fuses are good and not shot. If one is shot then the system wont work. There are two fuse. Also be careful due to you will be working around 210 volts

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.

After taking my AC out of storage for the year I just discovered Black Mold growing inside the unit . Is there a way to take off that air flow screen and get in there to clean it out? What would be a...


remove the screen to get to it but follow these precautions.
In order to get mold out of various surfaces, it is important to first obtain proper protective gear. You should check to make sure you have all the necessary protection before you start, such as goggles and a disposable outfit which you can wear during the cleaning.

The first step is to wet the moldy area with water and soap spray. This stops the mold from continuing to spread through the air, which it will do if you do not spray it first. Then, you can use a vacuum to **** away remaining mold spores from the affected area and any surfaces close by which might also be affected by mold spores.

Next, you want to be sure to rinse all areas where you have scrubbed. You can use a wet-dry vac if necessary if too much water has collected. You should then take some bleach and water and apply it to the surface where containing the black mold. Warning: do not mix bleach and ammonia! This can lead to a deadly combination of gases. Make sure you follow the instructions on your cleaning ingredients labels.

You will probably have to leave the solution on the affected area for 6-8 hours or thereabouts. It should be able to dry on its own. You can also use fans, dehumidifiers, and any other type of air circulation device to let the area dry as quickly as possible.

It is important to note, however, that it is very important to let the mold dry; otherwise, it will reproduce. Every mold spore must have a chance to be completely wiped out to prevent it from coming back at any further date. Once the entire contaminated area has been scrubbed away, it should be okay to start using the previously affected room again for any usual purposes.

Ultimately, black mold removal must be done with care and caution. You must ensure that every surface which has been affected is thoroughly cleaned. If it is not, you run the risk of mold returning which can cause serious health problems, as mold is a deadly substance and can create huge issues for any house or building which is affected by it.

Be sure to properly protect yourself when cleaning non-porous materials or any other household surfaces while you remove mold, both to prevent damage from the mold itself and from the chemicals you use to clean it away. This is very important to ensure good safety and preventative measures for mold removal and permanent care and treatment of the moldy spots.

Can mold accumulate inside rooftop dometic air conditioner? How to clean rooftop unit


Mold could easily form inside.I am not familiar with the unit but if you call the/a dealer,they will usually tell you how to take the cover off free.If it is just clipped on they would know the best way for removal also.All I would do is start removing visible screws which appear to be holding on the cover.Clean the mold off with bleach/water mixture using very little bleach,clorox spray or something similar.Good luck!

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..

I have an old CW-C60YU model air conditioner which is in one of my walls. How do I remove the chassis in order to check for mold? I have removed the filter as well as several screws but it still does not...


I believer to panasonic does not pull out but you have to take the unit apart by taking it out of the wall and removing a screw on top (or more) and all of the screws around the bottom edge. It has been a number of years since I worked on a panasonic but if there are screws around the bottom this is usually a sign its a cased model and not a slide out. But on the mold if you have any it will be on the inside coil only if you see no visible mold you have none. If you want to kill mold spores mix a 10% solution of bleach in a spray bottle and spray the inside coil with the unit off ketch any drips and then hold a towel ect you dont like over the front and turn on the fan (no need for cool just fan) Shut it off and repeat. Then let it set for 10 min and then spray with clean water just like the bleach but do it 3 times. This will kill any mold in your tray or backside of the coils. I hope this helps just becareful with the bleach it is very uncomfortable in the eyes only happened to me once never again. good luck

Black particles coming out of the room air conditioner


dirt, dust, or mold. could also be the tubing insulation flaking off. either way, open it up and clean it out. the dirt, dust, and flaking insulation can restrict air flow through the coils and cause the ac to not function properly. if it is mold, it's can cause sickness (legionaire's disease). do not use chemicals on the coils. it might be best to replace the ac alltogether. to prevent mold: when installing the ac, make sure the unit is slightly tipped towards the outside. any condensation that collects on the coils will drain out. failure to do so will result in water pooling inside, and this can cause mold.

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.

Water draining from window air conditioner runs down the side of the house creating wet basement wall and mold grows inside basement. How to drain away from house?


If the inside is clean and the unit is installed with very minor slope toward the outside, you should not have any water draining. It should get picked up by the fan and blown thru the condenser (outside) coil, evaporating, and helping with the heat transfer. Take the unit out of the window. Take it outside, Remove the outer cover, and wash out the inside - especially the pan in the bottom and any slots where water runs from area to area. Try not to get the electrical control area very wet, if you do let it dry before re-assembly.
