Question about Haier HWR08XC7 Air Conditioner
Any mold in any part of the unit is not good, especially if its in the Styrofoam, Styrofoam has pores and hides the mold spores well, it would be dangerous to actually run the unit with mold spores as it can travel inside the house. Unfortunately companies that make these units don't make these units mold proof, why should they? that's how they make their money. I have three units, one has always given me problems with mold. It always comes back. The other two are always clean. My best advice, get rid of the unit and get another one or get a free estimate on Central air and heat. Mold is very dangerous and is not worth the risk, it can cause a number of medical issues.

CAN YOU BUY A AIR CONDITIONER THAT DOES NOT HAVE THE STYROFOAM INSIDE?

You can use a spray bottle with 100% bleach in it to kill the mold. After spraying the gunk, you can put on some rubber gloves (those dishwashing ones are a good choice) and use some paper towels to wipe up as much of the mold as you can reach.
Spray more bleach on the parts you're cleaning to keep sanitizing the A/C unit and wipe everything dry. You should put all the stuff you used for cleaning it up (paper towels, gloves, etc.) into a plastic trash bag,
I'd also recommend that you do this when any small children and pets aren't in the room you've got the A/C in, and also wear a face mask to keep from breathing in anything that could cause a respritory ailment.
You can also use some Lysol disenfectant to give the whole unit a nice going over, once you're done, to be sure that you've killed any active mold spores. It might be good to give the unit a once-a-month cleaning to prevent the growth of mold in the future.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

It should remain there it is the insulation seperating the condensing side from the evaporating side you may nve to reach in and move it around to prevent the destruction of the foam.

There is a product on the market that will prevent mold from growing in your air conditioner.You should be able to find it at a refrigeration supply house.Just take the product and place it in the area where the water collects.There is also a product to help you clean your unit of contaminants on the heat exchanger surfaces.It simply sprays on,and can be later rinsed off.Its usually a straight forward matter to remove the cover from an air conditioner.Usually no more than 4 screws.Some units will slide out of their covers,after removing the screws that keep them locked in place,and some covers simply lift off from the rest of the unit once the screws are removed.In either case the rest of the unit minus the cover will remain intact,and can be cleaned.Cleaning the unit will almost always make it work better too,so your killing two birds with one stone.

I have an amcoreair duo, that all of a sudden will not turn-on. I know there is energy going to the unit; however the unit will not respond or turn -on from the remote. Anyone have any ideas?
