Taking it out is a very difficult process and if you try you will wish that you didn't...I don't know which end of the globe you live in, but hopefully you are in the northern hemisphere, so you are approaching winter and will not need it...

Once cooling is over, take a small spray bottle and fill it half full of Clorox unscented bleach and the other half water...then spray the fan, soaking it well with the bleach water and moving it around by hand so that you get the whole fan...make sure to catch any run off and protect walls, carpets and such from the over spray, so you don't bleach them...

Then let everything sit and dry out....a few days should do the trick...then take compressed air and blow the dried residue that is left out of the fan blades...

Now you have a clean mildew free fan again...

Simplest thing to do is get an air compressor and clean the outside aircon condenser. This if blocked will cause cooling and heating problems. Not to forget to clean the inside evaporator filters as well.

Hi, It is a 25,000 dollar find to bleed off the freon. This is why we have recovery machines. You can pump it down and save the freon that is in the whole system. Go to the outdoor unit. Leave the power on. The small copper line where it comes out of the unit will have a valve on it. It may have a cap screwed over its top. you will see an allen head screw on it. This may take a little time but is well worth it. Screw it down closed, CW. tight. Start the ac and let it run.Since you have no gauges to watch it pull the freon from inside the house to store it all in the outdoor unit, the condenser will shut down when it is done. Once the valve is off and you turn on the stat to run, it won't take very long for the freon to pump in the outdoor unit. We call this pumping the unit down. When done, close down the valve on the large copper line the same way before you shut off stat. Now, you save youself some $ as the freon can be used again. It is perfectly good. The tech will need to cut the lines and relocate them where ever you move this unit and resolder them with silver solder15%. New control wire and move electrical. I hope this has helped you. This is the way it is done. Keep me posted. Merry Christmas,
