Hello RalphF,
This is Lisa from GE Appliances. There are many normal noises associated with room air conditioners. Below are the more common noises:
Air Flow Noise: An air conditioner must circulate indoor air to heat/cool the occupied space. Therefore, air noise will be heard when the fan is operating.
Thermostat Click: When the compressor cycles on and off a metallic sound may be heard. This is considered normal.
Water Dripping Outside: Air conditioners must be installed level or slightly tilted to the outside. Consult the Installation Instructions for your model. On exceptionally hot and humid days the air conditioner may permit excess water to drip on the outdoor side of the unit. This is considered normal operation. Download a copy of the Installation Instructions.
Fan Runs Continuously: When the energy selector is in the cool or fan position, the fan will run continuously. This is normal operation.
Front grille loose: Room cabinet or moveable air directional louvers are loose or broken. They can be fixed by adjusting them and snapping them back into place as normal.
Improper installation: This may cause a vibration in window sill. Check that the side panels are properly fastened to the window frame and window sill with screws.
I hope this helps. Thank you for checking.

Answer: 
This AC and other typical "window" AC's must be installed so it is positioned to discharge the heat from the condenser to the outside of the home. This condenser is located at the rear of the AC unit. The depth measurement of this AC is approximately 15 to 18 inches when installed in a window. This depth would require the screen to be removed.

Hello window - this is Nancy at GE Appliances and I am happy to help you. I'm sorry; however, you would not be able to install this window unit if the window screen is in place because the unit needs to properly be attached to firm wood, masonry or metal. You would not be able to do this if the screen is in place. I hope this helps! Thanks for checking with us!

Answer: 
Yes, but the accordion plastic is not very thick, and by themselves, do not have any significant R value to them. Very similar to window fans with extendable sides. I only use one, but it's almost fully extended. There are still light gaps around it, so it's not a good seal, but should keep out all but the persistent small bugs.

That depends on the thickness/depth of your wall so take careful measurements first. There are louvers/vents on the top and sides of this AC. If these louvers/vents are past the outside of your siding/brick/masonry etc and the front is in the room after being installed through the wall you are good to go. If they do not and are covered in the wall the answer is NO! This AC does not come with any Read More

If these louvers/vents are past the outside of your siding/brick/masonry etc and the front is in the room after being installed through the wall you are good to go. If they do not and are covered in the wall the answer is NO! This AC does not come with any waterproofing/insulating materials because it is a "window" AC, you would have to supply/fabricate all that material yourself or hire a carpenter/handyman.
The Home Depot sells other AC,s that are manufactured/designed to be installed through walls The louvers I mention above are farther back/outside on those AC's. You/your handyman still has to fabricate finishing materials. Read Less

Also by taking out the side covers will make it a wall AC AS LONGS THE AC BACK SIDE IS OUTSIDE, SO THE AC CAN GET AIR TO COOL IT'S SELF TO KEEP PRODUCING COLD AIR. If you cover up the top of the ac where it looks like vents, and the sides that's not good either. Make sure you have a thin enough wall so the AC can breath. You don't want to ever cover any vents as it could over heat and catch fire. Read Less

2. The model does not have a slide out chassis.
3. Window air conditioners have louvers on the sides of the case (models specifically designed as built-in models do not have louvers on the sides of the case). The louvers need to be exposed for proper air circulation.
4. Window units can vary in size from year to year, whereas the size of our built in models has not changed year to year, which makes it easy when time to replace. I hope this helps.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 524 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by website inaccurate Website says this model not available at my location - that is wrong - when i went 3 days ago there were mountains of them boxed and ready to go so we bought it basically unseen. Got it unboxed and installed and so far am unimpressed. First, it looks flimsy - notice that the illustration is full front view, not angled like some others to show a 3/4 view and some of the venting on the side. The vents on this thing are huge enough to see right through the whole thing. Plus the front-view illustration shows a normal-looking dark area behind the front vent but, no, because it is so open from the outside all the light comes through and all I can see is the white styrofoam slab they put in there, i suppose, to keep whatever critters that can crawl in through the vent holes from getting into the house. I never thought I would live to see a GE product so poorly made. IN ADDITION his is installed in a bedroom where it woke me up before 5 a.m. today with an alarm for no discernable reason - repeating BEEP BEEP BEEP, BEEP BEEP BEEP, BEEP BEEP BEEP and so on until I turned the darned thing off. IT'S THREE DAYS OLD for goodness sake - what does it have to be alarmed about - and why on earth would I have such a thing in my bedroom ... Not Happy May 13, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Window unit does not cool I live in a small apartment, so I purchased this unit in the hopes of cooling my 10 x 9 ft. room. While the AC unit seems to be "working" as in it tuns on and has air blowing out of it, it does not cool the room. I notice that when I set it on "Cool" and "High" and adjust the temperature to the lowest degree, it will circulate cool air for a very short amount of time and then suddenly switch back to warm air. The temperature on the display screen will drop to 58, switch off, and then rapidly increase to about 80. This process repeats over and over, but the room does not seem to cool down. Is there something I can do to fix this? I would like the unit to remain constant on "Cool" mode in order to lower the temperature in my room and hopefully the rest of the apartment if I leave it on long enough. Thank you in advance.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy it! You are throwing your money away!!!! I bought two of these air conditioners for two rooms in my home. Only used them for three summers. That's only four months each year and only 8 hours per night. I put them in my windows this year and only one works. The other air conditioner's compressor broke and it doesn't blow cold air at all. I had it stored carefully in my basement in the winter and handled them both carefully. Don't buy GE products. They build their products so they break for no reason. I have two other LG air conditioners for at least eight years, same kind of use and they're still working. Now I have to go buy another air conditioner. It won't be a GE air conditioner!!! I am buying an LG air conditioner from Lowes! June 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A very good purchase experiance Quieter the other units I have at less BTU rating. The 6500 BTU unit not available :( Will know after the end of the season how effective. Lastly, Installation has more foam to seal unit, some glued to window. I modified this part of insulation to avoid having to destroy when removed at the end of season. The unit fit to my windows is typically poor, so this one did require a little more creativity sealing the gaps. If they ask at the end of the season, I will be able to report on actual performance.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nothing to write home about..... It definitely does not perform as well as my 15yr old Panasonic 5800 BTU ac I bought it to replace. I have it in a 275SQ FT bedroom and it takes hours to cool it down at night and it comes on constantly, Thinking I should have bought the LG, good thing Home Depot has a good return policy, if it cant cool the room now what will happen when the first heat wave arrives.....
