I Washed My Window AC Unit & the Electronics Got Wet

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?

So many idiots typing unnecessary responses. I too just cleaned my mine and it appears to be shorting out. Going to wait 24 hours with a fan blowing on it in hopes to dry it out.

SOURCE: bad smell from ac unit in my house

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.

SOURCE: I have a sharp window AC unit, model af-609x.

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."

Make sure the rear coil (condenser in window and portable units) is clean, with no bird nest. Central air systems have their condensers in the outdoor condensing unit, they can be washed with a garden hose after shutting off power

Window kit dimentions i have a window 18 inch wide


The portable AC units generally have a customizable, exhaust hose window, termination kit that comes with the unit.. In other words it can be cut to fit. The one that comes with the unit will fit casement windows, as well as sash windows.

To further assist you, I have included a link to the Owner's/Installation Manual for the model you referenced. You may download and print it if you like.

Just purchased a 15000 btu 110 Frigidaire window unit and we love it. However, since the rear of the AC is actually on the back porch, the water from the AC runs down the wall and on to the floor. We could...


window units slide into an outside frame section
there is a hose attachment area at the back of the ac unit proper that a hose can be attached to
and there should be a section in the frame that allows the hose to be fitted to that ac unit proper
the unit should be mounted so that it actually slopes slightly down at the rear so water can collect at that drain point
there are adaptors that should have come in the packing box for hose attachment
if not, many people use white poly piping or electrical conduit with suitable elbows to collect the water at the hole and pipe it back to the wall into a bucket and the collected water used to water plants and gardens

Ac rattles after a few minutes of operation then shuts down for several minutes. then restarts and does the same thing over and over again. wat should i do?


Believe it or not, it's probably just dirty! With the unit off, apply a spray cleaner or a detergent solution, which can consist of water and a little dish or liquid laundry detergent, to wet the condenser coils, and spray clean with your garden hose. If it;s a window unit, it's probably best to take it out of the window for cleaning.

Hello, I have a Kenmore 580.75124500 ac/heater


It is probably the compressor. You will need to check if the compressor is being called to come on. Do you hear the compressor running? If you do, I would remove the unit from the wall or window, and wash it down real good with a hose being careful not to get the electronics wet. If not and the unit sound different than it did before, it's probably time to buy a new one.

Moldy smell to air


I have a maytag ac unit that kept smelling moldy. We tried spraying with antifungal, only helped for a short time. I took the unit (ac unit slides out of window case) outside and carefully removed screws only to discover the fan was covered in mold!!!! Oh my what a horrible discovery! I washed the fan blades with bleach and water mix. I completely and carefully washed and wiped down the air conditioner careful around the control box. Then I let the unit sit outside in the sun untill completel dry. Good bye mold and fresh clean cool ac!! I will do this each year now that I saw that ugly mold!! That is definetly a health hazard! I would reccommend you either thouroughly clean your unit or pay someone to do it or get a new unit right away!! Don't use that moldy unit another day!! Good Luck!
