Styrofoam inside of my Haier HWF05XC7

Does the styrofoam casing within the unit remain or does it need to be removed because it seems that it's being torn apart by the fan.

    ok, but the sound? its making this tattering sound.

    Our airconditioner doesn't drain, and once enough water collects in the bottom it sounds like a slushy machine and spews water into the air.

    Yeah, I understand the styrofoam is supposed to stay inside the unit, but it makes this aforementioned tattering sound...the sound of a pencil tearing into the styrofoam. Help!

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.

I have a Dell A960. There is a piece of styrofoam jammed at the base of the paper intake feed and I can't get to it. Is there something I can remove to access it? Opening the printer top doesn't...

I don't know if that printer has a rear access panel, so here's a little trick....uncurl a thin paperclip, putting a loop at one end for your finger, and a barb bend at the other end (think of the sharp part of a fish hook) at the other end, Use the hook to grab and remove the Styrofoam.
Another solution, although more tricky and potentially dangerous, is to put some crazy glue on the end of a piece of cardboard, and try to glue the end of the cardboard to the Styrofoam and gently remove the cardboard, hopefully with the styro in tow!

There is water driping from the back of the refrigerater inside. Seems to coming from the unite on the top. Pools of water form on the shelf. What is the problem?

A couple of thoughts. First unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel in the
freezer compartment and check the drain hole in the freezer. You will have to unplug
the fan and in some cases remove it to unplug it (Be very careful doing this).
you can use a turkey baster with warm water to check its operation. If the control
panel in the fresh food compartment extends to the back of the refrigerator, then
it also acts as the catch cup and may have a clog in it. Remove the control
panel (4 screws usually) and lower the panel slightly,
unplug it carefully slide it downward and out towards you and look for
clog in the catch cup and inspect the mating seal on the styrofoam as these were
often the culprit as well. (I usually dried them out with a hair dryer on low and siliconed
the mating surfaces on the earlier design that were styrofoam only with kitchen and
bath silicone for a better seal). Test drain with a turkey baster and listen for it
trickling into bottom tray. Then reassemble.

Frigidaire window air condition unit

Hello,Lilo The styrofoam pack MUST stay in place.When in operation the air tempature is so cold the unit will condensate(create water)if not insluated.Your unit would LEAK all over the place.The blower fan is a PLASTIC composit and should not rust.

Seems to be filled with water In window model, on about a 10 degree pitch out the window. Some water sputters out of the vent that blows out the cold air.

Your unit has a clogged drain passage that's why the water is staying in the front of the unit.If you take the unit case off look for a drain trough in the bottom of the a/c where the metal wall is that the fan mounts to thats where it is,clean it out and the water will flow to the back of the a/c and not blow or drip inside your house.

Lsc26905tt = chunks of styrofoam coming from ice maker

Over the past few years the appliance companies have found that it is less costly and more efficient to replace the traditional spray in foam insulation to Styrofoam panels. They do sometimes shift. When they shift they can come in contact with the fan. The blade shaves them and then blows the foam particles into the unit. If you are comfortable with doing repairs then you can fix this. You will need to un-plug the refrigerator and remove everything in the freezer. You will see a series of screws in the back inside panel. Take these screws out and remove the panel. You will expose the coil and fan assembly. Inspect it and make any adjustments to the foam at this time. assemble in reverse. Hope this helps. Good luck. RE-post with updates. Thanks cj2176.

Tape over flat circles of styrofoam on the back of the Frigidaire

No! These arethe insulation fill points. This is where insulation was blown in at the factory. they need to remain sealed.

I makes a very loud noise

Had same problem with Ge AC. Unplug take out of window and remove all cover screws. Pull up on cover and pull cover off ac, Remove front cover as well there are a couple screws in the front. When looking at front of ac, hit the Styrofoam housing towards your left (towards control panel). Spin fan blade to make sure that it is clear. Plug in to double check. I put a couple quarters between the styrofoam and the metal housing, so it would not slide back. Also tape the styrofoam between the seams this helps with better cooling. Use some good tape nothing cheap. I used black duck tape. It took about 20 mins. The hardest part is re installing the AC.
