Crapped out after one year!


This 8000 BTU GE window AC unit (model AEL08LQ) crapped out after one year, and I only ran it a few hours a day during six months. The motor simply stopped running one day after a loud thump, and then would just turn slowly over as, "thump, thump,...

Highly disappointed.


Unit was bought in 2013 and it worked great straight out of the box, same goes for 2014. Considering it's been only been used for roughly 4-5 months in total, one would expect the same performance for 2015. Wrong! Only once the unit hit 83 degrees and...

Good air conditioner


This is a good air conditioner for the money. It has a lot of nice features. Such as a remote control and thermostatic control. Ive only used it a few times and so far so good.

Quality I rate it a 4 star


I recently moved into an old beach house with no central air condition. Needed something to cool off the living room and the kitchen which are next to each other. The only thing that separates the rooms is a pocket door. I closed the pocket doors to...

Good for the price


It has not been really hot here, waiting to see how the unit will handle three digit heat, I do have to turn the unit off, because it does get the garage cold quick.
