Questions & Answers for General Electric GE 5,000 BTU Mechanical Window Air Conditioner, Cool White

Question

I just bought this and it does not blow out cold air...It feels like only the fan is on. Is there something wrong with it?

We keep it on during the day...and when I get upstairs the room is still hot. There is no cold air blowing out. We have it on high and keep the door closed also. What is wrong with it?

My father owns an HVAC company and I asked him the same question about a few used units I had bought from a friend. The motors worked on the used ones so I figured even though the air wasnt blowing cold, I could just recharge the freon. My father told me that if the air wasnt blowing cold that there must be a leak (so it would just leak out again if I refilled it). And he also said that in all the years he has been doing HVAC, he has never recharged a window unit. Many of these units don't even have a port to put the freon into it. He explained that these window units are disposable, once theyre out of freon, they get thrown away. Just like when a BIC lighter runs out of fluid. However, if yours happens to be rechargable, look inside the casing for a nozzle that looks like where you'd add air to an innertube on a bicycle tire. It will have a needle in the middle of it. and check the manufacturers instructions on which type of freon it uses. more than likely it will use R22 if its made after 1993 or 94. Hope this helps!

It could have lost it's freon. It may need to be recharged. I would seek a replacement unit rather than pay for these charges as the unit should come "ready to use"

Yes, provided your wall is thin enough for the AC unit to breath/exhaust. Most AC window units are made to fit in to 2" wall that will allow venting for the unit
