Question about Heating & Cooling
The dimming of your lights at start up tell me two things, One is that the starting Amps may be a little high and drawing too much amperage. Have this checked by using an Amp meter. Secondly, look at your circuit breaker box. Does the Amp total on the right side of the box equal the left side. What I mean is that the Amp load of your box should be as close to equal as possible. If you have too many drawing Amps on one side, it puts strain on that side and will effect all breakers (loads) on that side. You can check this by investigating what circuits are on the same side of the box as your A/C unit and watch the lights associated to that same side and see if they dim when the unit starts. Also watch other lights associated to the opposite side and see if they dim. If they do, you have a compresser issue. To clean the coil you can purchase a coil cleaner at a local A/C repair shop and use a garden sprayer to apply. Rinse off the coil slowly and after you give it a chance to work. Too much water on the coil when rinsing will cause a flood in the bottom of the air handler and may not allow the drain to exacuate the water as quickly as designed. Rinse in moderation. Do this with all power off and the breaker locked in the off position.

Try going to a local sheet metal fabricating shop or a heating/air conditioning shop. They can probably make some up for you. Usually a lot less expensive than trying to order some from Trane/American Standard.
