Sometimes you can vacume it out -- use the brush attachment, if this does not get it all out you may need to use a air compressor to blow out all the debris and then finish clean up with the vacume.

VY commodore smelly air conditioner

Probably a build up of grime, mould, cigarette smoke(if you smoke in the car)_ etc etc. The air intake is under the passenger side. On some models , there is a filter that can be removed and cleaned, you would have to check with your Owners manual or a Dealer. There are cans of air con deodorisers available from Air conditioner parts stores (Actrol, Heatcraft , Airfridge etc) Spray the can into the air inlet of the air con whilst running. It kills anything bad and cleans and sterilises the air con. These cans are about $45 to $50 each, but they work better than unloading a can of Glen 20.

Musty smell coning from window ac unit

You can spray glen 20 or similar into the return air filter with the unit running to kill the mould that is causing the smell, the other thing you can do is runn the unit on "fan only" mode for 20 mins after it has been in cooling mode before you turn it off. This dries the evaporator coil.

How can i remove the fan barrel from the head unit to clean it

with care. first remove the screws holding the covers, you will find them behind two or three small caps near the louvers and maybe under the filter cover. Completely remove the plastic face. Remove the screws holding the coil in place. You can only remove the left hand end as the right hand is connected to the pipework. remove the grub screw holding the fan barrel onto the motor shaft. Remove the screws holding the left hand bearing in place. At this point you should be able to withdraw the fan barrel. Take very real care how you handle the coil, for if you kink the pipes your machine will no longer perform without some major surgery. While the unit is dismantled , try cleaning inside the machine, removing dust and mould. Reassemble in reverse order

When the air conditioner is running we get a rotten egg smell in the rv.

It is probable that you have a dead animal, ie: mouse in the system or maybe, moisture overtime has developed into mould under the face plate. I suggest some investigation behind the covers.

Fan roller and grey fins clogged with dust and mould

You can clean Blower wheel one of two ways. !st would be to remove the wheel and clean with the garden hose or if that is not a option for you then you can buy a can of compressed air and clean it that way but you will get a blast of dust and dirt when unit turns on. Make sure unit and/or power is of when doing this. Keeping your filter mainteneced more often will reduce the build up more.

Bosch conditioner drawer

This problem is caused by the compartment not filling up sufficiently to start the siphon action. First ensure that the drawer is clean, especially the siphon tube then, with the drawer removed, check the top of the compartment. You will find various holes that let in the water, make sure these are clean and not blocked with mould. Clean out with mould remover and wire then run a cycle with no washing or softener/detergent in the machine.
