    Cleaning

    I have the luxury of having two Tecumseh Condensing Units [< 1/2 HP] in my shop. They both suffer from an extensive case of "kitchen grease" contamination. I do realize, that they can be power washed, and if I am lucky enough to find a steam cleaner, and there is always the "elbow grease" method of using a cleaner such as Cal-Clean HD.

    Does anyone have another alternative cleaning method that is really good....???

    Cleaning

    Not sure of its effect on aluminum but mean green degreaser does a great job on grease.

    I have used oven cleaner and then washed with water in the past.

    Viper is good stuff.

    Haven't seen the one called Renewz in a while, but that was an awesome cleaner, too. Of course, it would remove fingerprints if you got it on your hands, so maybe it was a little corrosive.

    You should dilute Calclean, and most concentrated detergent cleaners, at least some with water. They actually work better this way.
