You need to check to ensure that your unit is sloped to the outside of the window. The correct formula is 1/4" per foot. This can be checked with a level.

Hope this helps Ya please rate me.

    Somewhere there should be a condensate drain maybe this is plugged up allowing water to set in the drainpan. If it is you will need to open up the restriction in the line somehow. Another option may be to buy algea tabs from an hvac supply store. You can place one of these in the condensate pan around every 3 months in the summer time.

Hi I have just moved into a new house and there is a musty smell coming from the electric Dimplex heaters fixed to the walls. is there any way of getting rid of this smell? thanks# Mary

Are the heaters hydronic? (Heated water flowing thru tubes) If so, the musty smell is because the water has been leaking which is obviously a problem. I know you mentioned that they are electric heaters, but "musty smell" goes hand in hand with moisture.

Lower element only gets lukewarm bosch single oven model HBL536 a uc

The problem I had was with a Bosch model 536 wall-mount oven, not an airconditioner. Decided it was the lower element that was at fault. Although it showed continuity (dual element 48 ohms and 114 ohms) readings should be approx 24 ohms per element.
