Hello, everyone. I'm Joshua Clement, and today I'm going to talk to you about how to stop your window air conditioner from vibrating. What causes a window air conditioner to vibrate is the compressor vibrating inside pushing all that lubricant and the freeon through the tubes and the fan motor running around inside causing it to shake. For this job you will need a drill with a Phillips tip bit, and some small screws. You want to make sure that the screws aren't too long to poke through to the other side of the window. Located on top of the air conditioner are predrilled holes and a track. This track has the window sit down inside it. We're going to take our screws and put it through those predrilled holes in to the window. This is going to make sure that it holds the window air conditioner in place. It's not going to allow the window to vibrate against this channel and it's going to keep that window from coming up and allowing your air conditioner to fall off the window. Now this window air conditioner, it's a little too big for this window, so we can't put our stops on the side to keep the air from blowing through. This could cause a little bit of vibration along the edge of the window. So we're going to take our insulation, set it in the side of the window and push it back in to place. This is going to cut down on the air flow through the window and help quiet the vibration of your air conditioner. It's important to make sure that the air conditioner is secured to the window. That way it won't fall out, especially if you're in a second story. Thank you all for watching and good luck with this project.
