If you are taking out the air filters for cleaning then be mindful of the fact that the AC should not run without the filter. Also, ensure that the filter is completely dry before fitting it back into the device.

Also, don’t forget to clean the coils, fan grills and fan blades of such outdoor units. For a thorough cleaning, you can use a hose to spray away all the dust and debris stuck to such components. Before hosing the unit, you should cover the motors and other essential components with plastic bags so that they do not get wet.
