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.

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

Asked by: Tasco
I removed the band around the brush so the teeth could spread to fit between the fins, then I pulled down to straighten them. It did work well on light damage, but not so well on the crushed fins.

Can this fit any size that is needing to be repaired

I know that there a different size ones and the kind I was shown had different ones that looked the same but different colors on something that looks like round ring that a bunch of key would go on
Asked by: Jeanne
The one that is pictured is the one I purchased. It looks kind of like a paintbrush with stiff wire bristles. It would adapt to fit most size fins, but not the heavy wide ones, and not the very fine thin ones, either, if they're bent right over. I would say the biggest fins it would work with would be about the size of the ones on a car radiator.

Air Conditioner Fin Repair Tool is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 69.

I had to go back to the store and purchase the fin repair tool when the fins on the back of my AC were damaged as we attempted to remove it from the box (it was ridiculously over packaged). Unfortunately, the fins on my AC were so fine and thin that the repair tool was not able to separate them to sufficiently repair the heavy damage, although it was able to straighten out some lighter spots. The teeth on the tool are sturdy enough to straighten anything as long as they can get in between the fins. I would recommend it for straightening light damage or for fins that are not quite so fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works TERRIBLY, buy fixed teeth combs instead This tool is "one size fits all" and works horribly, it does more harm than good, I'm not exaggerating. I bent / damaged fins while trying to use it and could not straighten anything. Let me explain. This tool has many "flexable" wires, about 2 or 3 rows of them. In order for this to straighten fins, you have to squeeze / fit the wires into the undamaged fins before sliding this tool through the damaged area. The wires are pretty stiff so it's difficult to get them in place even with the perfect amount of pressure and movement, but easy to smash fins down. Then lets say you do get it in position, it then relies on the pressure from the wires crammed between the fins to do the straightening. It's also prone to slip out of place while sliding, in which case you'll be smashing fins down. The black "adjuster" on the tool doesn't help by the way, I had it set to have the wires as loose as possible. Go to another store, or an internet site and order a fin comb / straightener that has a fixed / set number of teeth per inch. Each comb will say an amount of teeth per inch, they look kind of like regular combs. These actually work because they are sized properly, they fit right into the grooves. Home Depot, please stop carrying this garbage product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keep your receipt! Actually, do yourself a favor and just open the package right after you buy it and move the slider that's supposed to spread the tines out and see how they literally don't move...at all. Then walk right back in the store and return it, that way you don't have to waste a trip home and back to the store. Then search YouTube for the videos that use plastic combs or wire brushes to straighten the condenser fins.

This tool is far too stiff to work with the delicate fins in this A/C unit. I'm not sure what kind of a unit it would work on but it didn't work on mine.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent This tool does take some finessing to work properly, but once you get the hang of it, it works pretty well; until it starts to fall apart. I was able to finish straightening the fins on about 3/4 of my unit before the tines on the comb became loose and started to fall out. Once the tines come loose, and more than a few fall out, it becomes worthless and actually causes more damage to the fins. For the price of the comb, it works well enough though. If you have a large unit, I suggest purchasing two combs so when the first one falls apart, you'll have another one to finish straightening the fins.

While extremely tedious to use, I found a regular kitchen knife corrected the major dents in my residence's outdoor AC compressor much better than this fin repair tool. I was using this fin tool for the final straightening only...until the tool fell apart! (the pins all started falling out). I had been using this tool, admittedly with great intensity, for maybe an hour. I have the tool and its loose pins in a plastic bag to return to the store for a refund.
