Questions & Answers

Does this have accordion style for the sides of unit to fit window like in the pics?

Asked by: Beth13
Yes it has the side panels, funny they don't like to show that in the pics because it's kinda important. Also it has extra pieces of insulation that you can cut to fit over the accordion panels to help keep the heat out and the cool in. I thought that was a nice extra that I've never seen before. If only it wasn't doing some odd behavior I would like this a lot more. My display keeps shutting off even though the unit is still running. I have to hit a button on the remote to "wake it up" again.

On "eco" mode, the unit cools to the preset temperature, then does not turn back on. Is my unit broken or am I doing something wrong?
Asked by: HDAdam
I have a similar problem. The unit is running but the display shuts off. I have to hit a button on the remote to "wake up" the display again. After it wakes up if I hit + or - it will change the setting for temperature, then a few seconds later another temperature appears which I assume is the actual room temperature. This is handy to know since you know how many degrees it will have to go to cool down to the desired setting. But nothing in the manual says anything at all about this and whether this is normal or whether this is a problem. I hope someone from GE support can answer this question. Thanks.

Customer Reviews

8,000 BTU Energy Star Window Smart Room Air Conditioner with WiFi and Remote is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 621.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed This particular brand and model, along with the smaller model AEL06LV received high ratings and recommendation from Consumer Reports, so I bought the two from Home Depot. I followed the recommended BTU for the room size I was going to put them in. I am disappointed with my purchase because it doesn't cool the entire room without the help of fans to circulate the air. The fans are not strong enough .Also, once it reaches the desired temperature setting, it takes a long time for it to turn back on again even though the room feels warm. It feels like its built-in thermostat is not correct. ( This is when placed the "energy saver" setting). Even when set to "cool", the air that's blowing doesn't feel cool enough. These units replaced the older window ACs we had for 12 years, which did a fine job in my opinion. The only thing I like about these GE window AC's are they are quieter than most window AC's. That was my deciding factor in choosing them over similar highly rated brands and models.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do you call 64 degrees cold? We use this unit in our bedroom to ease hot flashes, so when I hit the remote, I want it pretty cold. Not happening with this unit, and the econo feature makes it feel even hotter. We had a no name brand before and it was a comfortable 59 degrees. If you don't need to adjust the temperature but a few degrees,this might work for you. Ticked that the temperature range is nowhere on the box.

BUT...it has no drain hole for the condensation to drain out. It uses the "slinger theory" whereas the fan throws the excess water back onto the coils to help cool them which, by theory, helps it to be more efficient. However, when I had the unit turned off because it was fairly cool outside, we had a rain storm to come through that dumped nearly 3" of rain on us. The rain collected inside the unit and since it had no where to drain, it drained inside the house. This happened even though the unit had a nearly 1" tilt to it. GE told me it "probably" should not have happened like this but they we sorry. I will be returning the unit and going with another brand instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quickly cools bedroom, easy install, delay on / off feature I bought this to cool our bedroom in an add-on upstairs dormer that is sweltering in summer because of the heat rising from the first floor. Bedroom is 225 square feet and with door open a crack, AC cools room down from mid 80s daytime temps to low 70s in an hour. The Delay On / Off function is very handy - can set the unit to turn on every day at 7pm so it's nice and cool by bedtime and when unit is on, can set it to turn off early a.m. Also has energy saver feature for those that don't want to constantly run the compressor. Install was easy - you screw in the top bracket, the bottom bracket comes pre-installed, and then you lower the window so the sash sits in back of the top bracket and the bottom bracket sits in front of the window sill. This tilts the window a bit but the unit is slim profile so that it's not too unsightly from the outside, should your window be facing the street. Also comes with a set of screws to affix the accordion sliders on each side to the window frame and a top bracket to help prevent the until from falling out should you have a momentary lapse of judgement and just try to open the window. Comes with foam to stuff into the top window seal and I used Frost King winterizing tape to seal the gaps around the unit so there is not much cool air loss.

This air conditioner has not been abused and probably has less than 40 hours use time on it. Purchased last fall and it has barely made the 6 month point. Home depot will not repair or refund. GE needs to get out of the consumer products business as none of their junk is any good anymore. The days of GE being a leader vanished about 25 years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do not be fooled. I bought this unit to cool a closed in garage(20x20 or 400 sq/ft). I had a 13,000 BTU PORTABLE unit in the room but would not get it below 79 deg on a 90 deg day even if it ran 5 hours straight. I was a little worried that 8,000 BTUs wasn't gonna be enough as it was rated for 350 sq/ft room but decided to give it a try. I installed it in the window and cut it on, within 45 minutes it had cooled the room from 83 to 79 degrees, within 2 hours it was a comfortable 75 degrees and unit was cycling off and on due to thermostat setting. Pretty impressive on a 90 deg day. A $250 dollar window unit outcooled a $500 portable unit. Things that make you go HMMMMM. This unit is a great buy, not as loud as portable unit and cools great.
