QUESTION FROM Joe

A/C compressor fins have developed a white coating. Appears to be some type of oxidation. Is there any way to clean it?

ANSWER FROM HOME-WIZARD

Dear Joe:

The white coating could be oxidation, or it could be residue if an acid cleanser was previously used.

Here is a webpage that describes how to clean air conditioner compressor fins: http://www.ehow.com/how_5064669_save-own-air-conditioners-condenser.html

Also, if you see a number of bent fins (or if you accidently bend some of them when you are cleaning the fins), then you might want to consider using a "fin comb" to straighten them back out. And here is a short video on how to use a fin comb: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwzwboqN5Cw

Hope this is helpful.
