    Why doesn't it say to remove the styrofoam in the instruction manual? If you take the styrofoam out, then you can see outside. HELP!!!

Its suppose to have some styro foam inside? or its suppose to be out?

Most window A/C units have styrofoam lining the air vent. Unless the manual says to remove a piece of foam when unpacking the unit, leave it there.

Just installed air conditioner. The water is building up in the bottom and getting flung around in the back. Is there supposed to be a drain? I have it slanted at least 3/16 inches. HELP!!!!

I don't think 3/16" is enough. 1/2" would be better. That way the water will flow to the "drain hole" near the rear of the drip pan. Also, if you just purchased and installed it, turn the unit OFF and unplug it. Remove the front and check for any Styrofoam material that may have been left inside for shipping purposes.

Hope this helped you, Jean. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Possible remnant foam left in vent from manufacturing process

This needs to be taken out if not it will affect your system. Never cover up the vents on a unit hard on compressor.

Need to access inside of Carrier air conditioner.

After removing the cover and filter, you should be able to see the fins for cleaning. If there is styrofoam in front of the coil, it should not be there for proper operation.

Is there supposed to be Styro Foam inside the ESA3089 AC unit?

I believe that the styrofoam is installed in the unit for shipping purposes. This is to prevent damage to the unit while in transit. Simply remove the foam and everything should work fine.

Hope this helps,
