Extremely Loud. Totally unsuitable for a bedroom

Comments about GE 5,050 BTU Window Air Conditioner:
Very loud. No good for a bedroom. Bought it from PC Richard and am sorry to have done that. Going to have to replace it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Got this GE after my Fridgidare unit died. Figured since it was priced slightly higher than the Fridgy I was at least upgrading. If ever so slightly. Put the unit in, with no problems for the first hour then it started. This ding/ping/fingfang sound every couple of seconds. The instruction manual stated thay the unit often makes this noise when it has a problem draining and to make sure your air conditioner is tilted. If the air conditioner were tilted any more, "Nearer My God To Thee" would start playing from it. When I tilted it even more (while in my hands) water POURED out. But the only way it was able to drain was to practically put it upside down. I started the unit again and voila! No ping/ding/water torture sound. Until the unit fills back up again. Then here we go with the water sound. I couldnt take it anymore and promptly returned. I was told that "all air conditioners are like that now and they all make that sound now" .....if they "all make that sound" then give me a block of ice and a fan. But alas, they don't because I the Fridgidare (i dont work for them, I swear!) Unit I replaced it with (model number FFRE0633S1) runs perfectly. I think I probably got a defective unit because I just dont believe an air conditioner is supposed to make that kind of noise but I wouldnt take the chance with them again
Great compact unit
By TS 44
Great little unit, cools a 12x12 bedroom nicely. Very compact, the outside edge of the unit is almost flush with my siding when installed in the window.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I own a bed and breakfast and GE is the only window air conditioner I will use. In 14 years I have found all the competition to be cheaply made and I'm lucky to get 2 years out of them but GE's rock! I have used this model for several years and despite what some other reviewers said, this unit is quiet, compact and powerful.

noisy water running from front
By Big joe

Glad I bough this AC, it maybe small but it cools down a larger area than it is rated for.
GE - AHV05LR - I returned the a/c
from New York, NY, United States
The a/c worked about one week then all the Freon leaked out and the a/c only produced warm air
