    Tecumseh Sherman Год назад Awesome tutorial. I don't have the same exact model but they are mostly the same. For the coils, I bought a special coil cleener at ACE but I don't know if it's necessary. One tip: for the electrical part, I ripped a shoe box and taped it over that part (left side as in the video).

    issis666 Год назад Was surprised you left screws loose on a table - especially one that has slots in it ... better to have safeguarded them in a small container. BTW love your dog ... but again, given the force of the water and your use of a cleaner, better to have kept him/her away from the work area given the force of the water spray. Sorry to sound so critical ... and I do appreciate your posting this helpful video.

    tonka 2 года назад so i don't have to worry about any electrical parts getting wet?
  • Ken Dee
    Ken Dee 2 года назад I did not spray the electronics directly. Mine still work after washing them. Do it at your own risk.
  • tonka
    tonka 2 года назад +Ken Dee thanks for the response.so doing that would make my ac cooler.i bought it like almost 2 years and it's not as cool

    Ken Dee 2 года назад When I took the cover off of mine I could see all the gunk blocking the fins. More than half the fans were packed with dirt

    Learnmore 2 года назад Ken Dee Thanks for the video, I just bought a used frigidaire similiar to your's with an electric control feature as well, Do I have to worry about that part getting wet or not?
  • Ken Dee
    Ken Dee 2 года назад I didn't spray the water directly on it. But I had no problems after washing it

    Learnmore 2 года назад @Ken Dee sounds good, thanks alot, getting mine ready for the summer.

    Carole Jackson 2 года назад Are there window AC units that are <not> cleanable? I saw one instruction manual with a section on cleaning instructions that only suggested more surface type cleaning--unit surface and filter. Even with that, it warned against using a cloth that is too wet. This would risk damaging electronics. Yet, all the instruction on YouTube show hosing the whole unit. Do the instructions that come with your unit recommend taking it apart and hosing as you do? I'm wondering whether I should ignore the instructions. Mine has such a moldy smell and black moldy stuff covering the blow vent, it's likely contaminating the air. I've stopped using it completely until I learn what to do to fix the problem.
  • Ken Dee
    Ken Dee 2 года назад This was not in the manual. I would do this as a last resort. It's better than throwing it away. The ones I have cleaned with a hose still work

    AlexandraM 2 года назад What type of soap do you use? I plan to clean my AC tomorrow, I unscrewed it already and put seran wrap around the electronics to be safe. Do you use blue Dawn for dishes or hand soap? I know probably is a stupid question :-)
  • Ken Dee
    Ken Dee 2 года назад I think I used 409 spray soap. I think almost any soap would work.
  • AlexandraM
    AlexandraM 2 года назад +Ken Dee Thank you for such a fast response. I bought 4 cans of Coil Cleaner and I hope that will work

    marco luis 2 года назад Be careful, spray at the fins straight on with that much pressure or you risk bending the condensor fins. You can see you bent the top ones a bit but itll be fine as long as you dont bend a lot near the middle
