Summary: We have 24 of these units and the older ones work really well. I agree with the review that the new ones are junk. 10 of the units we have are the newer model. GE has had a recall to repair them but that only worked for a while. They are needing to be repaired way too often. Unless GE changes the unit and finds a new manufacturer I will never buy another one.
Summary: The absolute worst product that you can possibly buy. We have 4 (four) brand new , 15000 BTU versions of this model purchased in January of 2012. Two of them had already been repaired by GE and need to be repaired again Now two more are about to die. The issues range from bad compressors to bad temperature sensors to wind noise . GE corporate refuses to pay for repairs since the units are over 1 year old.
Summary: It arrived nicely packed and everything . I was so happy to finally have ac because my old one broke and i needed to replace it as soon as possible because it was like 100 degrees outside. worked for like 4 minutes and then it stopped . Great now what? Good it has the warranty. It was hard to get someone to come out and fix it. It took over a week for people to come out .. So they took ac with them . they said once its fixed they will call me.

Summary: HVAC guys wanted $1000 to install this. I just had to replace an old one. With the help of their great customer support, I was able to slide this one right in. Been in for about 2 months in a studio apartment I rent out. Tenant is happy with it.
Summary: We replaced a GE AZ41H12DAB 11,800 BTU Unit and I was concerned with GE's durability since that unit was only about 5 years old. However the condenser fan had broken on that unit and while performing that simple repair I decided to clean up the base plate and repaint it and most likely caused a slow leak in the refrigerant system because it worked well for a short period before quitting again.
