Customer Questions & Answers

Will this unit fit in my window?

I have a 21-1/2 inch wide opening by 45 inch tall window. The window slides side to side; not up and down. Would this unit be appropriate for my window?
Asked by: handygal
Under specifications they have the dimensions backwards. The window portion of the cooler I believe is 21.63 wide and 14.88 high. Your window opening as is would be a little narrow to work, but the slider window is removable. Then it should fit. After removing the slider from my window, It is a tight fit but it works (21 3/4"). So you need 21 3/4 inch or wider opening for it to work.

Can the unit sit on the ground?

I live in a two story rental duplex town home. I can't alter the home in any way externally or internally. Can this unit sit on the ground so that I would be able to run it through the patio door? Our temps are reaching 100+ degrees so my cats and kids are having trouble with the heat. I haven't used an evaporative cooler before but can't install an a/c unit and I have heard swamp coolers work so much better than air conditioning. Thanks.
Asked by: Toohot
This unit is designed to go through a window. Placing it on the ground would not work well. I would recommend going to the manufacturer's website to see options on what coolers would work best for you with the set up you have. The link can be found at https://www.essickair.com/champion/.

5000 CFM 2-Speed Window Evaporative Cooler for 1600 sq. ft. (with Motor and Remote Control) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 102.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from If it ain't broke, don't fix it Unit operates very well. But, who ever came up with the method of attaching the side panels with the new configuration should be fired. The older units were fool proof. Slide it up, put the bottom against the unit and slide it down into position. Simple! Now you put in adjustment screws and latches and it's completely screwed up. Screws don't line up, can't get panel to fit properly, complete mess. Other than the bottom housing getting bent trying to get all the screws and latches adjusted to put the side panels to fit, and the side panels fitting incorrectly, it's great!

Frustration: IF MOUNTING VERTICALLY YOU NEED TO PRE ORDER "Convertible grill allows vertical or horizontal installation (call 800-643-8341 for free kit)" THEY ARE NOT INCLUDED AND IF YOU GO TO THE STORE CUSTOMER SERVER / COOLER EXPERT WILL NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT AND OR HOW TO HELP YOU.

No more of this "we will install what we sell" business. I got one referral call and they wanted more than I paid for the cooler to install it. Bunch of idiots. I got a handyman to install it for 1/3 of what the Home Depot referral wanted.

I purchased this brand new at HD and the pump worked, but as soon as I turned on the fan, the pump stopped, the fan slowly started and then the fan stopped. Then it started again and after a few seconds it stopped again. I checked the tension on the belt and it was fine. Also the voltage is fine. those are the troublshooting steps. Called the manufacturer and they said that they would send me a new controller unit but it would take 5-7 days. Meanwhile it's 100 deg F and that may not fix it. Home depot was no good. Can't send someone out. I can return it, but I had to rent a trailer to get it to my house in the first place and get 4 guys to put it in place.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Don't buy this piece of garbage the electronics won't even last one season. Putting a circuit board in a swamp cooler is a horrible idea.Also you cannot hook a thermostat to this unit.The best units are wc44 and wc46 but home depot is so stupid they don't even sale them in the store. I wish home depot would quit catering to stupid customers that will buy this junk because they think it's neet that it has a remote. You won't even need a remote folks a thermostat would be of more value.

But, it is a bad idea to take a simple tried and true swamp cooler and add a circuit board control with a remote. Mind went out twice, and I had to order the $50 circuit board and install it. Also don't get confused about the window dimensions. The width and height are reversed in there specs. Although the cooler worked well for nine seasons before the squirrel cage baring stated going out, I will try to find one without the remote. Come on people. Is ok to have to get out of your chair to turn the cooler on and off lol.

I live in Orange County so my problem is I have to go all the way to Riverside or Fontana to purchase this item. This time at the time of the replacement cooler the float was a real problem to install. It finally works but if I hit the water line it still moves and that is not good. Also it took a long to time to adjust float to keep the right water level. I really need help on what to grease the gears with it says grease but what grease?

It was a cinch to install (although you definitely want at least two people to move it--it's heavy-ish and unwieldy). According to the info for the unit, we are in zone 2, and our house is almost 1800 square feet. This cooler keeps it cool enough that it can be almost chilly! We installed the unit on the second floor where it was hottest, and placed it over the stairs. It keeps the entire house cool, no sweat. Get it? NO SWEAT?!
