If you look in front section when ceiling cover is off, there should be a probe about 2"-3" long stuck in the fins a couple of inches up from bottom, or a round disc like piece with a clip to attach to tubes in the fins. That is what senses frost on fins and shuts compressor off. Should have 2 small wires attached. Look closely up there with a flashlight near lower part of fins and you'll see where it was pushed in for attaching.

The only place I could find parts for the air conditioner were located here, you might have to purchase the whole front cover, but I personally wouldn't say it would be worth it, so first you might want to try a little improvising due to the lack of parts around.

I would recommend getting double sided foam sticky squares which you can get at a hardware store, department stationary store or even a dollar store in the hardware department. Stick these back to back to back until the thickness is just right, then apply all around the edging and press on.

These squares or tape or used to hang up pictures or even light weight cosmetic appliance covers, so if it's a little bit heavy, use a lot of them.

Hope this helps!

newer AC's do drip more condensate than old ones due to increased efficiency
this will help with the complaints;;; ducttape a small funnel to the outside location of the AC (usually at the tray end) where the unit drips; (you may have to cut the funnel a bit to fit) attach a small hose to the bottom of the funnel and, place the other end of the hose into a bottle inside the window on the apartment's floor; empty the bottle regularly.

Kenmore 580.75151500 A/C unit smells... We've had this window unit in place for 2 years. We've cleaned the front filter and coil, but we're still getting different, peculiar smells from the A/C. Sometimes...


As you know, the evaporator unit (the one that the filter covers) gets a lot of condensation which is drained thru the back (outside) of the unit. That's why the unit is installed a bit tilted to the back.

The factory drain hole is too small and gets plugged up easy, some units don't even have one, the water sits for long periods of time. bacteria grows and the smell starts.

Unplugg unit from electrical outlet.

Make sure the unit is tilted back a little.

Drill two 1/4" inch drain holes in the same back bottom corner and set a bucket to collect the dirty water that will come out while cleaning it.

Get a quart of air conditioning grill cleaner (the ecol-friendly, it is purple in color) mix it on a spray bottle with water on a 1:1 ratio.

Use masking tape and some plastic to cover electrical controls in front of unit.

Following application instruccions on bottle, carefully spray on evaporator and condenser, avoiding electrical controls. Rinse with pure water, 2 qts. minimum on each grill, let it drain for about one hour.

Uncover controls and connect unit to power outlet.

Run the fan-only for about 10 min. and then the compressor.

There are more professional ways to service the unit, but performing this simple steps will keep your unit in good shape.

Don't forget to rate this post!! Good Luck!!

Black flakes

Chances are what you are seeing is not mold, but deteriorated insulation from the inside of the unit being ejected out the air discharge.

You may need to partiallly disassemble the front of the unit and find the area where the insulation may be damaged. If it's badly deteriorated, it may need to be replaced. In some units, the insulation is glued. In others, it's clipped in.

If it's just bruised, then a small piece of metal screening (1/8" or 1/4" hardware cloth) can be placed and secured over the damaged area to prevent subsequent damage and the black flecks you are witnessing.

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.

Stop the beeping please

If youre anything like me, you have a mechanical inclination and the desire is bad enough to fix this problemn yet unable to buy another... The way i fixed this infernal beeping & the sleep light cycling on & off everytime is as follows

Disconnect Power...Pull the filter cover & filter off....Locate the 2 screws that hide behind the filter that hold the front panel on & remove them..You should then just have clips on the sides that you can easily pop it out of...You will find that a cluster of wires housed by a black shield runs to the control panel in the part u just removed..There should be 3 screws to remove in order to open the compartment that houses the control board....Remove the screws holding the control board in and remove control board...On that board you will see there are buttons and one of them will say sleep....YOURE ALMOST ON YOUR WAY TO QUIET NIGHTS AGAIN.....VERY CAREFULLY pop the top of that button housing off ( I used a utility knife ) BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL NOT TO TEAR ENTIRE BUTTON OFF OF THE BOARD....once the button top is off you will see a small circular piece of metal that is pushed down when the button is pressed...KNOCK THAT PIECE OF METAL OUT AND VOILA THE BEEPING WILL NOW STOP BECAUSE IT HAS NOTHING TO HIT THE CONTACTS IN ORDER TO FORM THE CIRCUIT.... I am going on 2nd day now noise free & did not have to buy a new unit since mine cooled just fine
HOPE THIS HELPS....If you need further assistance you can email me at
