vent unit for portable units

I just got this Daewoo DOC-090R portable ac unit. It didn't come with a vent
unit at all

Daewoo denies completely that the DOC-090R exists and I need a vent unit for
obvious reasons.

When I tried to enquire as to obtaining a vent unit, Daewoo just tried to
get rid of me. Numerous times. Eventually they told me that whatever it was,
I could get it from Home Depot which Home Depot denies vehemently.

Dealing with Daewoo, I can understand why.

Daewoo DOES have something looking different called a DOC-091R.

My vent unit needs a connector which is 6.5 inches high by 5 inches wide
with the flanges at the sides so the unit pushes onto the exhaust from the
top downwards or bottom upwards.

Does anyone know if this is a standard size or if the DOC-091R one will fit
or if ONLY the Daewoo unit will fit or if there exists such a thing as a
universal vent unit or where I can get one please?

Well that is all very helpful, especially the bit about whether the unit
which I bought as a 900 BThU unit will manage a 150 sq ft room with me about
three feet away from it is a POS or not (useful that) but nothing so far
and no number of useless links has told me where to buy a vent kit which
will fit the unit

Yes, I HAD noticed that it wont go into A/C mode without jamming the water
collector in a few times

Did you try customer support? I found three vent kits for your unit when
searching http://www.dhiltd.co.kr/kr/index.asp for "vent + DOC-090R".

Well in that case I am going to have to get better at this Internet
business: Firstly I couldn't find a site in English at the URL you gave. If
you press on ENGLISH at that URL, there isn't a search function and if you
try products, there isn't any mention of anything vaguely domestic, never
mind portable air conditioner vent kits.

And nothing there even pretends to mention where I can buy one

And yes, obviously I called Daewoo customer service who tried to get rid of
me about five times before posting here

Admittedly one person there did promise to find one for any unit and did
take my phone number and unit number but that didn't result in anything.

Perhaps, since you seem to be either in the know or speak Korean, instead
of giving out cryptic messages you could possibly respond to ANY of my
questions please?

Why don't you go away ?

Yes, I had noticed that this group is populated by an exceptionally large
number of loonies who ought better to go away rather than hurl meaningless
rhetoric if they can't answer questions put.

Actually one can help this by using the block list for the psychiatric
inmates who interfere with the discussions on the HVAC boards but you would
know who those people are and will have probably populated your block list
by now: For my part I still have to go through all those messages to
identify them prior to blocking messages from them! (unless your reference
to restraints in your signature indicates that you were referring to me and
are one of them rather than someone responding to one of the loonies)

If so, is there some connection between being locked up and being interested
in disrupting discussions on HVAC boards?

I don't know - seeing as that seems to be your purpose here,
why don't you tell us ?

Or better yet, just go **** yourself.

yup.... all the damn home moaners that are either too lazy or too cheap to
pick uo the phone and call their local *competent*, licensed, insured,
proffessionally trained HVAC technican who is a dealer for their specific
brand of heating and cooling equipment and has the specialized training for
that brand.
Also all the damn home moaners that can't figure out that we can't *SEE*
their POS system from here.
Also all the damn home moaners who want us to quote them a price over the
internet or phone when we don't have a clue what size of system they
actually *NEED* or what its going to take to replace the system and do it
right.
Also all the damn home moaners that ask the same tired old questions day in
and day out both in here AND on the phone.

Try calling a car dealership and asking them all the same questions.... how
much is a car?? my car is broke, whats wrong with it?? I bought a car from
joe blow... did I pay too much?? my car is 30 years old with 300,000 miles
on it and its broke, how do I fix it??

Thats why we(collectively) get a bit testy when a home moaner comes in here
asking some stoopid question and also why the manufacturers will only talk
to certified dealers not to home owners.

Also as an afterthought, there is also a major liability issue here,
especially with fossil fuel burning appliances.

Now.... go piss up a rope and suck on the bitter end.

I agree with "Noon-Air", The jawbone of an ass.

There is obviously a major liability issue here, with fossil fuel burning
appliances if anyone were to advise you on where to find a window vent unit
for your floor standing air conditioner. Either that or the last sentence of
his message was (as far as he was concerned) the ONLY relevant bit.

It is the same liability issue you encounter when you go into a crooked
garage where they are trying to rip you off by pretending to do something
they havent actually done: If a customer dares to walk over to his car and
might find out what is going on, everyone starts screaming and pretending
that they have these liability issues with you walking across a floor over
to your car.

I hadnt realised that HVAC people were such a bunch of crooks until I saw
Noon-Air's comments and realised that this is (broadly speaking) a group FOR
those crooks into which psychiatric patients may (possibly do) seem to
wander but which is mainly for those crooks to converse with each other?

Is there NO ONE here who is even faintly honest, who isn't on a block list
and who can help this lady out?

Surely there is SOMEONE who doesn't occupy a
psychiatric cell who has some idea what is going on here? One can put
different people on a block list till one is blue in the face, the
(universal?) AC vent unit won't get found.

Despite the replies the same person seems to be putting on this thread using
different personas (it's a bit obvious when they ALL start or end in the
same sort of line!!), I cant believe the relatively obvious point that the
same person is using so many multiple personalities?

Wouldn't you do better going and bothering those boards psychiatric patients
populate like KadachM on alt.os.windows2000 or something (apparently the
most noted psychiatric patient on newsgroups, or ARE you he?)

When will you take a fucking hint ?

No one cares about your fucking vent.

No one owes you anything.

Which part of this do you not understand ?

Good idea! Let's bash his head in with a rock. See if he takes it as well
as Newty did.

You have responded to something on a block list which I cannot see: Can you
explain what you are on about or are you not capable of connecting your
thoughts and doing so? (I agree it is a shame to mock the afflicted by you
seem to be asking for it so I am enjoying myself, - possibly at Nan's
expense) I wont put this persona you are using on my block list until
tomorrow

Are all your alta egos on Road Runner in Columbus or is that a spoof? or do
you use different servers which are connected to your hospital? They seem to
have too much money. Where are you?

And buying the pre-made unit with the flange which you curiously ignore and
all the proper connectors to join the duct to the unit and to connect the
other end to the window is even easier still.

I had that problem once with a more normal window unit than this portable
one. Doing it your way never seems to work properly and can look hideous
but it DOES cost a lot of money paying specialists (possibly in a big city
if she lives in one) to fabric something which is already pre-made. Even
more if it is an AC specialist used to installing pre-made units in pre-cut
holes

go fish: FIshing is even easier still

You got your answer....deal with it.

You must be new to Usenet....

Nan
You sure are familiar with those groups...are you a ringleader over there or
something?
