Customer Question
I have a sharp comfort...

I have a sharp comfort touch window ac. behind the louver grate it looks moldy. how do i take it apart to clean? The manual only tells me how to clean the filer. It is the Air outlet on the indoor side that looks dirty/moldy inside. I'd like to turn off the system, unplug it and clean it all out so there is no mold. otherwise it works fine. Thank you.
