They make special window units designed specifically for casement windows. They are taller and skinnier than standard window a/c's. They are no where near as common as standard window a/c's so you might have to look a little harder, but they are out there.

THE UNIT BLOWS COOL AIR OUT THE FRONT BUT HOT AIR OUT THE BACK THE MODEL IS aP076E .i DO NOT HAVE A MANUAL BUT IT DOES NOT SEEM TO BE REAL HARD TO RUN THANKS


Yes, that is the way a typical air conditioner works. The portable types need to have the hot discharge air direct outside via flexible hose and an adjustable window bracket. The window closes on the bracket to create a seal, and the hose connects between the air conditioner discharge and the opening in the bracket. This is called "venting". Most portable air conditioners include (or offer as an accessory) a "vent kit" or "window kit".

Some portable air conditioners do not provide a way to vent - fortunately yours appears to have a kit for this purpose. You may wish to check out this page on venting. It has plenty of ideas and suggestions for venting. This site has some very good pictures to document making a vent - and is worth a look, too.

If this was helpful, please rate it "4 thumbs up" - thanks!

Window kit dimentions i have a window 18 inch wide


The portable AC units generally have a customizable, exhaust hose window, termination kit that comes with the unit.. In other words it can be cut to fit. The one that comes with the unit will fit casement windows, as well as sash windows.

To further assist you, I have included a link to the Owner's/Installation Manual for the model you referenced. You may download and print it if you like.

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

Has anybody found a manual for the Amana AP095R?


The included piece is not a template, but rather the piece the vent tube clips to. One side slides into the other and that allows for it being placed in windows of varying widths. I too had your problem with a casement window. I used a piece of plexiglass and screwed the round part to it and voila it worked. With my setup I was able to close the window (Pella). I later moved it to a double hung and cut the plexiglass to size. when we go out we remove it from the window. Easy peachy japaneasy.

Sorry, that's a no. There are, however, window air conditioners made for casement style windows which are tall and narrow. I know GE used to have them. Check geappliances.com. There are also " portable " air conditioners which sit on your floor and vent through hoses to a window.

Where do I find parts for everstar portable air conditioners


I just purchased a 11,000 BTU Everstar from Home Depot. Not sure if it's the same model that you have. Maybe check there? I bet an employee would be willing to open one of the boxes to answer your question. Just tell them you bought it there. :) Or call Everstar, of course. Good luck!
