Air Conditioners - Instructions for Moving or Transporting

When transporting a new, unused room air conditioner:

  • Do not place the unit on its side or upside down. This placement could cause damage to the mounting of the compressor. If on its side or back for more than a day, leave in upright position and unplugged for 24 hours.
 
When moving a room air conditioner that has been in use, take the following precautions:
  • Do not tip the unit when removing it from the wall, because there will probably be some water in the bottom.
  • Once you are outside with the unit, tip it at a 45 degree angle to drain off the water.
  • Do not place the unit on its side or upside down. This placement could cause damage to the mounting of the compressor.
