    Thanks for making this video! I had no idea what a fin, or fin comb, was.
    They should include the comb with the unit.

    Thank you for the fin comb info!!! Now I need to know how to get my little
    window unit to stop freezing up and start cooling. The compressor comes on
    but it’s not cooling.

    Ok, so I’ve been in my apartment now for 4 years and NEVER cleaned my ac
    units … I know, I know, gross right? But last season I stared noticing
    what looks like mold on the front panel. Been watching vids here on YouTube
    on how to clean an ac unit, so I’ll be getting to cleaning mine once and
    for all, lol!

    My ac unit is pretty secure, in fact, it’s not in the window but right
    below it, in the wall and I’m on the top floor! With that being said, I
    can’t get to the other side to clean it … Any suggestions?

    I have a window unit much like you have in this video. I’m getting my air
    conditioner cleaned up for the summer season. It has a fair amount of
    black mold. What is the best cleaning solution to use to clean the inside
    and fin panel. I understand that bleach is “not good” to use around the
    copper coils. Any thoughts or recommendations.

    Hey Dino, my Friedrich Kuhl AC cools and then stops after a certain period
    of time. I noticed when removing the carbon filter that there was extreme
    ice build up in the grill (fins) area. Friedrich Website FAQ says that
    running the unit at lowest temp & fan speed can cause condensation to build
    up. I like sleeping cold and don’t have this issue with the larger model
    which is in my living room. Any suggestions on what I can do to
    remove/prevent the ice build up and troubleshoot this issue? thanks..

    T hank you for the informative video….and the accent! I learned a lot
    from you and now I have a question please.
    What if a person can not remove the unit from their window, such as a
    widow? Can I use hose with a spray end and spray really well through the
    vents? I know it will not clean as well, but would it make a difference? I
    can not remove it out of the window. I cleaned the front part, in the
    house, as much as possible , without moving the coils. (so happy to see how
    to straighten the bent coils, with the fin comb, with some strength behind
    it. I would have been too easy .)

    So , how to clean , as best as can , with unit still in the window.

    Thank you, from Texas.
