Customer Questions & Answers

can this tool be used to straighten fins on a window air conditioner

I bought this frigidare window unit from home depot and some of the fins are bent. Need to know if this tool will straighten the bent fins. Please advise.
Asked by: sue
Yes, this tool will work on a window unit. I first learned about this type of tool in reference to refrigeration units for semi trucks.

Where is this product,I can't find it anywhere

Asked by: Tony
Use the Home Depot app for your smartphone. It will tell you if your local store has it, and in almost exact aisle and shelf location. My store, it was located in the builder assist area where all the air conditioning supplies are. I used "fin comb' for my search

How do you use a/c safe fin-tool?

Asked by: Tasco
In areas of minor damage, comb through the fins like you comb your hair. In areas of significant damage, use the fin comb in the same way you would use a regular comb to remove tangles from your hair. Insert the fin comb in a good area and work your way through the damaged area one or two fins at a time. See pics to see how a near 100% smashed flat coil can be 99% recovered.

I want to use this on a Delonghi portable air conditioner. I was vacuuming the fins and bent the daylights out of them. Why can't I find a fin replacement panel? The whole thing is a mess.

Use it the exact same way you would use a regular comb to untangle hair, find a good area and work your way through the bad areas. In really bad areas, repair one or two fins at a time. As you can see in the pics, one entire face of the coil was 100% smashed flat (it was like that when we bought the house). I worked from the top and bottom edges towards the middle. The end result is our HVAC evaporator coil has stopped freezing over, the condensing unit operates much more quietly, and the HVAC runs for half as long. Another benefit, the comb fin also digs out junk that is embedded deeply in the coil. Thus I am going to use this to clean out the evaporator coil as well.

I bought this Fin Comb to try and straighten smashed fins in my whole house air conditioner compressor unit, which had become damaged due to being moved to a new location. Prior to this repair, I would say that air flow was 50% blocked. With the help of this tool, a very small screw driver (to pry the most damaged), a good pair of gloves (the A/C fins are razor sharp), and a lot of patience I was able to get about 90% of the damaged fins straightened. The unit now has plenty of air flow for cooling.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless I bought a window unit, brand new, but 2nd hand. Some of the fins had been flattened to the point that there would be zero air flow through several square inches of coil. I attempted to use this tool, with absolutely ZERO success. I ended up using a piece of a regular fine-toothed comb, based on the advice of a YouTube video. It worked like a charm!
