Question

Nasty smell in my Samsung window unit


My brother and I own several Samsung window units which we have professionally cleaned each spring. However, 3-4 weeks into the summer, the window units begin smelling like a dead animal. The window units have water which pools in them and it attracts mosquitos which attract flies. What can we do to get rid of that nasty smell without having to remove the entire unit every 3-4 weeks? Your advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Dee!

the water shouldn't pool anywhere in the unit make sure it is slightly angled when mounted in the window ......should drip out of the condenser

i'm not arguing with you Biggles, but why is it happening on all the units. That's what get's me. Out of all the a/c s he installed at least some should be ok.

Some of the window shakers instructions state to leave the drain plug in place... States that the fan is suppose to pick up the water & sling it over the coil to help cool

They just didn't do a good enough job of cleaning if they all stink...either that or we got trolls again.
