Embarrassing as it is, this isn't actually a very technical question:
I have a window A/C unit that won't run, probably because of debris stuck in the fan after the winter -- this has happened to me before, but I forget the instructions the repairman gave me to open it up to access the part that needs cleaning. It was stupidly simple, but obviously not simple enough to figure out by myself. I've lost the manual and don't want to damage the unit by fiddling with it when I don't know what I'm doing. I live on the 6th floor - no balcony - so I can't clean it from the outside, and because it's bolted in and the bolts painted over (was like that when I moved in), I don't think removing it is really an option.
This is the unit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/501625852/ -- it's a Kenmore, if that helps at all.
We have already cleaned the filter - just don't know how to access any other part of the inside of the unit.
Thanks in advance!

There technically isn't a drain pan in AC units. Some have a little hole in the back, some do not. If they do not, then the evaporator fan "slings" up the water accumulated from the condensation in the air, unto the coil to help cool the inside of the unit. If there is no hole, do not drill into the machine. You are likely to hit a sealed system component and damage the unit entirely.
Check for a broken wire in the door jam. Other wise I think, You need to research this more, that the Left Front Power Window Switch is actually a door module. I would guess it has either lost power or gone bad.
Quite often the window units need to be tilted slightly toward outside to allow drainage to run outside the window. Try pulling bottom inward slightly so rear is tilted downward at outside and see if that doesn't cure it. You should soon see dripping outside at back of unit where it should be. Make sure you check for small hole under back end and check that it is clean and open.
to get to window motors you need to remove the inside door panel on the door that the window isn't working on, they are very hard to work on since they are between the inner door plate and the actual outside door skin, but they can be done, it just takes time and patience
First check your fuses (Manual should have that location for the window fuses). Also do the other windows go down on the other side with the switch on the drivers door? And what else doesn't work ( Mirrors, Locks )?

Remove it from the window,just slide it out from the shell,make sure there are no retaining screws,remove the front from the unit,and set it on a table outside,use a water hose and spray all debris from inside the unit,just remember not to spray hard stream of water directly into the coils on the evaporator,or condenser,you may have to remove some debris by hand if it is to large for the water hose to remove,make sure drain holes are clear,and let drip dry for about 30 minutes,then tilt unit one way,or another to finish draining the water,coils can be cleaned gently,just make sure nothing is restricting the air flow threw them,and make sure the fan has no objects in it`s way,then place the unit back in the shell in the window and you are ready for another hot hot summer.
