I have done this many times over the years and it won't hurt the unit. They are made to be in the elements. Unplug it and pull it out of its sleeve. Put it in the yard or driveway and spray it down with a good detergent. Rinse and clean the whole thing. Let it dry out for several days, oil the motor if its not sealed. Be sure it is completely dry and reinstall it.

First you will have to remove it from the window. Next, The coils that you want to clean are not on the face, but in the back of the ac. First remove the face, there should be a way to remove the panel in the center to show a couple of screws, remove those and you should be able to pop the face panel off. next, you have to remove the metal cover, the screws to remove it should be obvious, on the sides and maybe a few on the back. Next, You have to take out the screws which hold in those rear fins. You wont be able to completely remove the fins, as they ar attached to the cooling system, but you should be able to see the dirt and stuff on the INSIDE of the fins. You just have to swivel them out enough to get in there. You can just use a high pressure hose, but in my experience of cleaning hundreds of these things, it doesnt work very well. Youll want to get some acid spray to spray on the coils, and then rinse it thoroughly with water. Its pretty inexpensive...

and here is a link to some additional help..

My husband can't sleep due to severe stuffiness in his nose which makes him feel panicky. He falls asleep but awakens and can't return to sleep. Would this be a physical problem or a mental one?

Both. Physical that his nose is stuffed up. Mental that it panics him.

Try something like Otrivine nasal drops. If it persists, he needs a doctor visit.

Why my air conditioner it's dropping water?

Condensation is normal but window air conditioners bases must be tilted to the outside of the window so the condensation drains outside. The drain hole in the pan can plug with dirt overfilling the pan allowing the water to leak inside your home.

Hi there
Some machines live a life of their own. Maybe he (fridges are masculine in Icelandic) wants to have all the bulbs and filters changed so he feels better.
You are certain that this is not a headache in your head?
I once thought the water was dripping in the kitchen sink until I went into the kitchen -no water-just a bad headache after an operation.
Be good to your fridge

How to make the migraine disease cured?

well, it depends on how big or strong is your migraine disease. but i will recomend to do the following. it works most of the times. remember, migraine does not has a cure. people with migraine sometimes get a few attacks in a year or a lot depending on some factors that may include:

stress situations
what you're eating
times you eat
medical conditions you have
past medical conditions

but, if you want inmediate relief, try this:

have a good cup of coffee with ibuprofen. yes, the caffeine of the coffee will interact with the vascular changes going in your brain at the time of an attack, and the ibuprofen will have an anti-inflamatory effect on those brain vessels. dont do that if you're allergic to aspirin, because ibuprofen can affect people sensitive to aspirine. then , try to change your lifestyle, deal with the stress factors that may affect you, and if you smoke, stop smoking. your attacks may become fewer and weaker.

We own this air conditioner and it is one year old. It is working find, however, when running in the air conditioning mode it omits a musty oder. Where I am allergic to mold , I am concerned especially...

The problem is common. It is not a mold spore situation, rather it is a moisture laden problem of parts and dust that create an oder when allowed to warm and stay moist. A spray bottle with 1/2 clorine bleach and 1/2 water sprayed onto the inner components will remove the oder, but as the unit sits idle from time to time, the oder will reappear.
