Sharp has no service dept

Colorado &., Newegg
28 March 2013
  • Pros: It does cool a small room
  • Cons: The unit makes a scratching noise anytime that it has to work in humid conditions and the temperature is above 100 degrees. I contacted Sharp immediately after purchase and was given a bogus Sharp repair center address, and eventually was given an address to take it. They had it for two months before I faxed them to ask what was going on, and they said they could not hear the noise. I had recorded the noise during the time it was installed in the bedroom, and gave the...

No wonder discontinued

Andrew G., Newegg
5 September 2012
  • Pros: It does throw cool air, however...
  • Cons: Does not drain water. The water will inevitably pool in the back and when the fan hits it you get the "scratching" noise. This unit should be recalled for this design "flaw". No wonder it's listed as discontinued now.

Problem fixed

Barry K., Newegg
13 August 2012
  • Pros: At this time the item is showing out of stock. But I am writing this for anyone who is having a problem to let you know what to do. The unit does run great.
  • Cons: OK this is the way to fix the problem: Drill two holes in the back of the unit so the water can drain. This is what is causing the noise. Problem solved........

Sharp

Joseph B., Newegg
26 July 2012
  • Summary: I would definitely buy another Sharp A/C
  • Pros: I have owned a much larger Sharp A/C unit for 4 years now, very dependable and quite for its size.
  • Cons: The water issue, Yes you must drill a hole to let the water out or it splashes it out and makes noise. Do it very carefully and make it around 3/8 inch so it doesn't get clogged up so fast by leaves ect. I've bought several different brands of A/C's for my house and all of them needed water holes drilled into them, sad because that used to be a standard thing they all did. You should see a area under the fan that is stepped down as to collect the condensation, drill i...

Great for the price

Anonymous, Newegg
24 July 2012
  • Pros: Good AC for the money. Built well. Nice wireless remote feature.
  • Cons: I know people have complained about the annoing scraching noise started, goes on non stop. It tends to happen after the unit has been on for some time. What happens is that water collects on the bottom of the unit and the noise is actually the fan hitting the water and splashing it. To remedy this all you need to do is drill a hole in the bottom of the unit. I do not know why there is not one already there but there is not. I drilled it right under where the fan is, o...

Good Window Unit

Jinfang L., Newegg
23 July 2012
  • Summary: I hesitated to buy AC from Newegg last year because their return policy for big item. I made the bet because it is Sharp – good brand and good price. The box of one AC had little damage when it was delivered. The delivery guy put the boxes upside down. I was fear they would damage the units. But when I opened boxes; everything was ok.
  • Pros: I bought two from Newegg on last year July. By far, they are running very well. It has light weight and easy to install. It cools very well. It is quiet comparing with other window units I used in my home.
  • Cons: None

2nd Review Sharp AF-S60RX

Alex M., Newegg
8 July 2012
  • Summary: Sharp AC units cost only a little more then your bargin basement companies & they are worth the extra money. I would say Sharp is on the same build quailty of an LG AC unit. They are sourced-out like most are today, but Sharp & LG uses better components then the likes of other brands. If you're looking for a soild bedroom/small office AC unit, then Sharp is a soild choice.
  • Pros: This is my 2nd review of the Sharp AF-S60RX. Sharp makes a soild mid-range air conditioner for a reasonable price. They perform pretty well overall, but they aren't of Friedrich/Panasonic build quailty. They use styrofoam as it's liner (as do many Chinese-built AC unit manufactuers do today) I still find them a tad louder then my older Panasonic AC units, but better then most on the market. Some people claim they are very quiet, but I think they are "somewhat" quiet. ...
  • Cons: None really to speak of. Could be a little less noisy.

fixing the scratching noise

John A., Newegg
23 June 2012
  • Pros: cools the room and is quiet once you fix the defect
  • Cons: This unit has mace a scratching noise since day one. IO sent it back for repair but it was not fixed. Sharp customer service was no help. I decided to fix it myself. The cause of the scratching noise is the styrofoam shroud that surrounds the faz rubbing against the fan blades and the housing. I disassembled the unit removing the cover and used caulking to glue the two halves of the styrofoam shroud together. A few extra dabs on the side and the problem was solved. Th...
