Question about Quasar Heating & Cooling

Quasar window air conditioner

This ac hac been working perfectly. This morning there was a bad, chemical smell coming from it, but still cooling. I was told this model is no longer made.The BIG problem is my windows have bars on them (ground floor, city apartment) and this very slim line model was the only one I could find to fit.I really need to get it fixed, but every place I've called locally says they don't repair them. I would love your help. Thank you

Air conditioners remove moisture from the air. The water collects in the base of the unit. Under normal conditions this water will be evaporated out of the unit. However, it is possible for some water to sit stagnant in the base of the air conditioner for extended periods of time. There is no easy way to prevent this problem. The problem will be reduced if you carefully clean the base of the inside of the air conditioner at least once a year. That will keep any dirt, lint or dust from absorbing the water and allowing mold and mildew to grow. Also, replace the filter behind or in the front cover.

also check the drain ,to make sure its draining properly If this helps please give me a fix ya vote

Dawlance split ac

My guess is compressor motor overtemp cutout. So why is the motor overheating? Possibles: Needs bearing oil, bad bearings, compressor too much pressure, overfull with freon, mechanical friction, cooling fan not turning.

Suggest set thermostat to demand less cooling, see if compressor stays on longer.

Hello, some window units do not use a drain tube instead they use the condenser fan blade to scoop the condensate from the bottum of the base pan and splash the condenser coil to keep the condenser cool and also evaporate the condensate. Most of the time you can hear a "swishing sound"

My window ac looks like it is blowing out a fine foggy looking substance but it is cooling ok and I cannot smell any smoke or burning wires. We had a cool front move through with lots of rain this morning....

Shirley, it's just a harmful mist. This usually occurs on hot, high humidity days. Keeping the air intake filter clean, will help to reduce it.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

If the the AC doesn't get the cooling then the main reason will lack of freon gas.
Is the fan works perfectly. Also check the fan is it working perfectly. If the fan is ok then you have to refill the freon gas again.

Is this a burning smell. AC units sometimes have what they call dirty sock syndrome. The evap. coil has bacteria that puts of an odor. You have to have the coil chemically cleaned and sanitized to get rid of the odor. Rus

Heater smell when AC comes on...

The fan that blows the air blows through the heater coils before it blows through the A/C.As long as the heater doesn't come on, there is not much that can be done. ZCooking the attic room will be a problem because it is the heat rises thing, and on top(literally) of it all, the roof is radiating heat.
