Question about Sharp AF-R609X Air Conditioner
I used the garden hose to wash my Sharp 8,500 btu window AC unit, and knucklehead that I am I allowed the electronics to get wet. I spent 15 minutes trying to dry it with my lawn/leaf blower but it isn't working right. As of 4 hours after wasing it, when I turn it on the colloing apparatus starts tochug along but I'm getting no fan at all.
Is it likely that if I just let the unit sit in the garage and completely dry out for 12-24 hours it will work again?

does it smell like literally , dirty socks?if so it is dirty sock syndrome, a plague of heat pumps for years. if it smells like an electrical melting or burning of wires then time to call a pro.it could be a weak capacitor or a weak fan motor. if it is dirty sock syndrome then its the microbes that thrive when temps are middle temps and reproduce when temps are hot and cold in intermittent days. hot one day and cold the next equals call for cool then call for heat and hot steam from heated coils cause s bacteria to grow and microbes to spread across coil. when you switch back it causes the smell.if the coil is clean you can spend a chunk of money on sanitizers but best bet is to run it cool for hot weather and hot for cool weather. the transitional periods are what create the smell. avoid semi cool and semi hot periods. this condition is common to acs from all brands . lots of stuff on the internet about dirty sock syndrome

Obviously, one of the electrical components is still wet or got damaged by the garden hose washing. Until you remove the unit from the window or wall and dismantle the cabinet, there's no way to know what damage has been done.
I'm sorry, I wish I had a quick fix solution for you. But, there just isn't one, short of replacing the entire unit.

All window air conditioners will remove moisture from the air if there is any. Most window air conditioners collect this moisture in the bottom pan of the air conditioner and attempt to evaporate the moisture. The evaporation process works as follows: First, the water drips down off of the cold evaporator coils on the front of the unit. Then the water collects in the bottom of the air conditioner base, the "pan." If the air conditioner is installed properly it will be tilted slightly back.
The water then collects near the back of the unit. On some units, the fan blade used to cool the rear condensing coils will have a rim on the outside of the fins of the blade. This rim, or "slinger," will come close to touching the inside of the air conditioner pan when the fan is spinning. As the water collects in the pan and reaches the depth necessary for the fan ring to touch it, the ring will lift some of the water up and the fan will blow it at the condensing coils. Because the coils are warm, they will evaporate the moisture to the outside.
While this is happening it is normal to hear water splashing and sloshing around. As long as there is no water leaking inside the room that is being cooled there is no cause for concern.
Never drill into the bottom of and air conditioning unit to "let the water out."
