GE ASQ10AKS1 Window Unit

Hi! Does anyone have the technical service manual for the GE ASQ10AKS1 room air conditioner (window unit)? I have searched the internet high and low for it, and it's driving me crazy not being able to find it.

Thank you!

It's unlikely that they'll be one. Best you'll likely to find is a user manual and maybe a parts list if you're lucky.

Why do you need it anyways? Maybe we can help

Those things are pretty disposable. If it was the cap and/or start windings, I'd expect it to do that every time. I'm thinking more like the bearings are stiff, which warm up after the first run for the day.

But if you still want to open it....
They are all mostly the same. They'll be a screw or 2 in the front panel. One is usually hidden behind the filter. It'll also have several plastic tabs holding it to the metal around the edges. With a small slotted screwdriver, you can work each clip off, and the front panel will fall off.

Then they're be a dozen screws holding the case to the frame. They all come out, and the case lifts up easily.

That's it. Take a garden hose to it, and wash both coils and the garbage out of the bottom. Give it some time to dry before plugging it back in. You will then be able to see the cap, and test it if you want. A hard start kit might help, but they cost a good portion of a new unit. (The main reason why no one wants to fix one.)

No, it's a great way to learn. It's just doesn't make financial sense. For learning, they are great.

They are critically charged. An ounce over or under and it's significant. They use desuperheaters. (the discharge loop in the bottom sump)
They also use cap tubes.

I wouldn't fix one unless it was a burnt wire or thermostat, etc. Everything else would only be of education value.
