NOOOOO. The compressor in it is mounted and can only sit one way. If you install it sideways it will burn up the compressor

This is our first summer to use our Goodman central air conditioning unit and we are having alot of condensation on our windows and doors. We need to know if our service tech installed a unit too small for our home since we never had this problem with the brand that he removed to install the Goodman. Any response will be greatly appreciated!


Your issue may be just the opposite of what you suspect. If the unit is too small, it will run continuously, but may do a better job of de-humidifying the space because the A/C unit has more time to pull humidity out of the air.\015\012\ ... Goodman Air Conditioners

As we test the unit, 3 problems have come to our attention. (1) When it was really cold outside last Janaury the unit itself was leaking something that turned into ice. There was a pool of about 2 inches of ice on the floor and the wall had a covering and the hoses were encased in ice. The installer maint

I have a Danby DPAC10071 and am trying to install the vertical window installation kit. I don't understand how I'm supposed to put in the sliders without covering the holes that allow the air to come in and out of the window.


We were thinking the same thing when we first set it up. What we did was use the patio extension to **** up against the one with the openings so that the smaller piece joined the two larger pieces. Seems to work this way. Hope this helps!! ... Air Conditioners

I have a older model of a Hampton Bay air conditioner. Looks like maybe 10 years old or better, anyway I cannot find a serial number, model number, nor can I find where there is a filter for it.

It has two top horizontal vent panels, down below the horizontal vent panels to the right of the unit is a small panel with a door to it with the controls for the temperture, coolness for the unit.

My Amana Cool Zone stopped blowing cool air. I live on the 3rd floor in a small apartment and getting the A/C in the window and installed was a chore on its own. The unit stays in the window year round because I don't have a place to store it.

My house in Florida was built in the fifties and I think that when the central air unit with pump and gas heating was installed the installer may have used the existing chimney-probably for an earlier oil furnace. The exhaust tube goes from the unit horizontally to meet the chimney in the attic and then vertically to the top of the roof..In the attic the enclosure-as well as above the top of the roof for three feet is made up of concrete blocks..We have had a very cold month here in Central Flo


Hi,\015\012To do that you need what is called "B-vent". It is a double wall pipe that will work as long as you maintain 1" to any combustible materials. This pipe will also keep the exhaust hot enough to prevent condensation.\015\012Most ... Air Conditioners

Window air conditioner cools but doesn't dehumidify room. This has been the case since it was new. The unit is tilted down slightly in back as recommended. The room is small. I read that having a unit that is oversized for the room can cause this problem.

13.5 Dometic rooftop rv ac design has changed since I purchased 2006 Monaco Camelot rv.

The air conditioner is emitting cool air instead of cold air. I have the setting on cold and the temperature setting at 60 degrees. On these days that have been near and over 100 degrees, that cool air offers no relief. When we first got the unit, it emitted cold air. We've changed nothing. The unit is not installed in a window but rather in a hole made for it in the wall.

I want to move my 2 1/2 ton Rudd UBHC - 17J11NFA Heat unit from a closet where it is installed vertically with the return on top and the supply going out through the bottom, to the attic with it suspended horizontally. Will it work okay if I turn the coils so the "pan" is on the bottom? (It is not really a pan, but a sealed plastic piece that catches the condensation.) It does not appear the air flow will be the same??
