The plastic front must come off. Usually the screws to take the front off are behind the front grille of the plastic front by the filter. The unit will probably slide out of the case when you get the plastic front off, but at times they will put a shipping screw through the back side of the case on a lower corner into the unit. This screw(s) will also have to come out.

How do i repair my dometic air con unit on caravan

When you say safety switch do you mean fuse or breaker? If your breaker is popping(110 volt) then if probably is your compressor overloading the system.i would do as advised before and remove shroud(cover on roof) and clean coils or fins with some otc coil cleaner. Ive been in the buisness eight years and only one time have i change a compressor. Most people get a new ac. Sorry for the bad news

I have a Goodman A/C unit model number AWUF36106BA and serial number 1010684384. It keeps shutting off on us and we have had a repair man come out and said the problem we had is the emergency shut off...

If the drip pan switch is shutting the unit down , this means you have a condensate drain issue. Be careful about wiring around any safety switch, especially if the furnace is in the attic or on a second floor. You could have water dripping on the ceiling. The drip pan switch is a safety switch. The best thing to do would be to inspect the furnace. The pan is underneath it. Look inside the pan if you can. If it is full of water, use a shop vac and vac the water out of the pan. If there is no water, you can locate the safety switch, take the two wires loose from it and just wire them together. Caution: This will be wiring around the condensate safety switch that could cause water to leak on the ceiling or floor depending where the furnace is. Don't go too long without getting someone out to clean the condensate drain out.

How do you change the air filter for the Mitsubishi Electric Mr. Slim, Model #msh12tn and where can you buy them?

If this is a ceiling mount, there should be to slide tabs on front of the
unit, slide those back and the cover should come down, it has a couple of safety chaines to keep the cover from coming all the way down

remove front cover and clean the coils off with a nylon brush. make sure filter is clean. with front cover off take it outside hook it to an extension cord and set it on the floor. then let it run till the stuff stops coming out. if you want to open the whole thing up you could clean it out even more example being the inside fan area behind the coils, but the first option should work.

What kind of stupid "warrantee" is that?

This is why I ask if there is local warranty service for anything that I buy, especially if it is very heavy to ship.

To ship the air conditioner, you will have to get the proper box and packing. There are transport companies that will ship it for you.

You will find one interesting thing about shipping an air conditioner. Because of the size and weight, the cost of shipping will probably come to about the cost of servicing it by an independent refrigeration service center if there are no major parts involved.

When shipping an air conditioner you will have to ship it insured. If you don't insure it, and if it is dropped or smashed you will have no re-coarse to have any compensation for it. This will also add to the cost.

At my location here in Canada, DeLonghi has an almost local service. I once tried to call them, and they are very poor at answering the phone to respond to questions.
