If you are not sure how it is to be done, then you can read the manual for minor cleaning.

And to prevent the further accumulation of dirt, you can simply cover it with a piece of cloth when not in use, like in winters. The air conditioner panels should also have tight screws to prevent them from opening.

Here are top-notch tips for maintaining your aircon gas

Tip #1
Unplug the unit from its power source. See to it that no electricity reaches the air conditioner.

Remove the bezel and filter of the air conditioning unit. When you remove the filter, you get to see the cooling coils of the air conditioner. In some models, full access to the inside coil can only be gained when the bezel or the front cover of the coil is removed. The cover is screw-secured. You can see and remove the screws after removing the filter.

Spray the cleaning agent. The particular aeration and cooling system curl cleaners are sold at numerous home supply focuses and the home stops. Use of the cleaners will remove all the adverse and unbearable odors from the coils and the air-conditioning unit. These occur because of mildew, mold, dirt and cigarette smoke, among other contaminants. See to it that the spray foam does not reach the electrical wires, the electrical controls and the other parts of the air conditioner. The spray foams work the best.

The coils of the aircon that are outside are not covered so they get into contact with rainwater. Hence, they get cleaned without any efforts. You can shut the unit off once again and search for the dirty and dusty areas. If you find them, then use the foam spray cleaner for cleaning them. Let the cleaner sit for around 15 minutes. Do not directly put a water stream within the coils through the water hose, but allow the spray foam to get floated away when the water is run over the outdoor coils.


Replace the filter and the cover, and then turn on the power of the air-conditioner after around 15 minutes. Set the settings to "cool" and then adjust the conditioner's thermostat to its coldest setting. The foam and the dirt will get rinsed this way and will be collected in the drip-pan.


Repeat the process once again if you do not get satisfying results.


The filter can be cleaned easily with clean water. If it is damaged, then you need to replace it. If the filter is filled with dirt and other contaminants, then it may also be contributing towards the generation of false odor. You can use a scent containing dish soap or some laundry detergent, for cleaning the filter.


Reconnect the unit to its power source, set to "cooling" and then adjust the thermostat for a low-temperature setting. The flow should be "cold" and devoid of any kinds of false odors.
