Asked by Nicole August 26, 2020

Answer

Hi Nicole - Thanks for reaching out to us! We are sorry to hear of the difficulty with the grill and can certainly understand your concern regarding mold/dust on the interior. The grill is not intended to be removed for cleaning the interior. The coils on the outdoor side of the air conditioner should be checked regularly. If they are clogged with dirt or soot, they may be professionally cleaned. We do not recommend cleaning it yourself with a garden hose or pressure washer, since you are more likely to get water into electronic areas. we suggest contacting GE Service to see if this service is available in your area. Call 1-800-432-2737, Mon-Fri 7 am – 10 pm ET, Sat-Sun 8 am – 6 pm ET. Also, make sure the unit is leveled properly so that it tilts about 1/4" back. The constant warming and cooling on these machines can build up moisture quickly. If it doesn't evaporate or drain properly, the stagnant water can lead to fungi, molds, and mildews and cause a musty odor. Take a look at pages 8 and 15 of the Use and Care Guide at the following link: https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/pdfImages/56/562cd392-4d4f-4d19-9122-f3a228364428.pdf - Keep in touch at GEAppliances.com.

Can this AC unit run on my goal zero yeti 1000 if my power went out at and I want to keep cool and for how long ?

Asked by Mony August 16, 2020

Answer

Hi Mony - Thanks for considering GE Model # AEL05LX! We can provide the electric ratings (Amps AHAM 4.0; Watts 450; 115V). In general, air conditioners can be used on an auxiliary power generator (gas, solar, inverter, etc.) as long as it can provide the proper voltage (120V or 240V), frequency (hertz), and can supply enough power to the appliance. The manufacturer of your goal zero yeti 1000 can assist you with proper sizing.

Can this be properly installed on a metal window frame?

You will need a drill to drill holes for securing it to the metal window frame, but it should fit fine as long as the window size is within the dimensions shown on the AC box.

What is the thermostat range? How low will it cool before it shuts off?

Asked by mdr August 4, 2020
2
Answers

Hi mdr - Thanks for viewing GE Model # AEL05LX! When set for High Cool and Low Cool, the fan will run continuously (fan will run even when the compressor cycles off). When set at the coldest Temp selection (7), the unit comes on at approximately 64 degrees. The TEMP control is used to maintain the room temperature. The compressor will cycle on and off to keep the room at the same level of comfort. When you turn the knob to a higher number, the indoor air will become cooler. Turn the knob to a lower number and the indoor air will become warmer. Here's the link to the Use and Care Manual: https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/pdfImages/98/986baacc-b620-48f8-a8ed-e150fa5d8b36.pdf - We hope this is helpful.

This was a great little AC that was perfect for my small NYC apartment until it turned off in the middle of the night a refused to turn back on. The manual says that if it won't reset then you need to contact a technician, but since I'm outside of the 1 year warranty I would have to pay 138.00 (which is how much I paid for the AC originally) just for someone to come and look at the machine (the repair/parts are extra). Really disappointed and am now stuck with no ac in the middle of a NYC summer.

Luving it!!!
Customer review from GE_Appliances.com logo
I think this product AC I’ve purchased is a great deal very inexpensive and serves the purpose of really cooking a room. I’ve always used GE my parents lived by it and it’s a household name brand appliance in my home.

I had this model window unit from years ago that finally died. Per the box it was 6050 btu and made the room feel like a meat locker. When this new 6050 btu unit arrived on my porch the box says 6000 btu. This unit does not cool anywhere near as good as the old unit and I am disappointed. Additionally, from outside, this thing sounds like a 10 year old unit with how loud it is. The last one was whisper quiet. At one time, this model was a Consumer Reports Top Pick but not anymore. I will be replacing this with a non-GE brand.

This air conditioner is terrible. It gets cold when it wants to get cold, it doesn’t even keep a small room cold enough to feel comfortable, and it blows cold air when it wants to. I have purchased two of these ac’s and I probably would be better with just window fans compared to these. Save your money and your time. This ac is not that great. The mechanics are off. One ac can go a little past the highest mark, the other will go a little below the highest mark. The cool fan setting feels like the high fan setting. It’s all a disappointment. Keep your money for something better. (This is my review after 2 months). It doesn’t get better with time, it was off to a terrible start to begin with.
