Questions & Answers


How many amps does it take

Asked by Amps May 3, 2021

Good day, Thanks so much for taking time to reach out. We're happy to answer! This air conditioner uses 6.1 cooling amps. Appliances with compressors (ex. refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers), there is a brief surge of power when the compressor cycles on. This is called the "surge" or "start-up" amps, and is about 2x to 3x the running amps. Let us know if you need anything! Mike@GEA

Asked by Flowering April 6, 2021

Hi! Thanks for reaching out and for leaving a few questions. We'd love to help. 1. To use the capability of the Apple Home app, it must be on your WiFi network to access and control the accessory unless the house has an Apple TV (4th generation or later) with tvOS 10 or later on the same Apple ID as the Apple Home app. You can then control the air conditioner from either your phone, Siri, or the Apple TV. When you're connected using the Apple Home App, you will be able to control or monitor the following: -Change the set temperature -Turn the unit On or Off in Cool Mode* -See when you're saving energy the Green Temp setting means the Apple Home app has determined you are saving energy - For additional capability, you can also connect the air conditioner to the SmartHQ™ app. If using both the SmartHQ app and Apple Home app, connect the air conditioner to the SmartHQ app first. - There is an article on our website titled "SMART AIR CONDITIONERS - APPLE HOMEKIT" that will provide some more details as well. We hope this is helpful and that you're staying safe. -Michael@GEA

Can you get a HEPA filter for this A/C unit? I have really bad allergies and I'd like to really ...

Asked by iJohnNelson March 30, 2021

Hi there, thanks for reaching out and checking! You should only use the filter for your specific model. We don't recommend the use of other filters, including HEPA filters (which can restrict airflow). We hope this helps and that you're staying safe. -Michael@GEA


Asked by MJJDEM March 27, 2021

Hi there, thanks for reaching out. We're sorry to hear that you're seeing a fault code on your display. Fault codes are programmed in air conditioner controls to help service technicians quickly diagnose issues with the unit. In the event that the electronic control displays an EP or any other fault code, a trained service technician should be called to diagnose and correct the issue. We do not have a list of all the fault codes and their meanings since they all indicate a service issue. Hope this helps and that you're staying safe. -Michael@GEA

Is this unit the correct replacement for S/N HL088795P ??

Does it work without WiFi?i

The specs say that the AC is under 13inches. So will it fit in a 13inch high window opening?

Asked by Richard March 1, 2021

Hi Richard, this is a good question that we're happy to help with. Although the air conditioner is under 13" in height, according to the owner's manual the window opening must be 13 1/2″ tall so it would not fit in your window. In addition, the width must be 22 1/2” – 38″. We hope this is useful information. - Guy@GEA

Asked by Louis February 27, 2021

Hi Louis! Thanks for your question. We're sorry that you're having issues turning off the beep sound. We see how this can be frustrating. We recommend trying one more time doing this on the unit. We found that you press the FAN button and the "-" button at the same time for 3 seconds. If you have any issues, please feel free to reach out to us at our contact page. Stay safe! Emily@GEA

First day! Excellent by now.
Is small, but excellent product. Many attractive features.
The wifi and the eco mode and easy setup LOVE IT
Its for my room it wprks very well it does whatnit say
Small and powerful
This unit delivers. I keep my living room, kitchen, dining area, bathroom and bedroom cool with this petite unit. I thought I would need a higher BTU, but this baby packs a punch. My LR is 12x20 and kitchen and Dining area around the same size to give you an idea of square footage. Nice job GE— I’ll consider buying stocks too.

Powerful a/c. Life saver for this heat. It was a little bit of a hassle installing it but not rocket science. The only con I have for this a/c unit is that when I put it on Fan mode, it gives off this weird smell. Pretty bad smell at that, so I just don’t use the Fan mode at all. We haven’t tried out the Wifi feature with it, because we don’t really find it necessary, but I guess it’s a plus.

Ok so far but had to modify unit to keep from blowing water inside the room
So, I've had this AC unit for 1 day in Florida. It's been running constantly and guess what? It has the same issue as the last GE AC unit, that being water accumulating in the fan blade area. This is the area inside your bedroom where the fan motor brings in your bedroom air and then blows it out the top of your AC unit. I heard gurgling and saw drops of water being blown out. All GE units have NO DRAIN in the fan area to get rid of water build up. I took the front cover off and punched a few holes with a Phillips screwdriver. This allows the water to drain to the outside back of the unit. No more gurgling!! Why in the world they design something like this is beyond me. If you run into this issue, here's a tip to fix it.

Its been operating one week in a very demanding environment. It operates per the demand quietly and most efficiently and automatically. I particularly like the method of using condensate in the cooling process elevating efficiency. Install was quite easy though upstairs installs require 2 strong people ut seems. I had a little difficulty with the app operation but figured it out. I REALLY enjoy my unit.
