I am having a terrible time trying to clean the cotton from a local cottonwood tree out of my condenser coils. I can't figure out how to even get at the coil by removing the side panels. I have the top (including the fan) off and there seems to be some secret to open up the side panels. I tried to use a hose to spray back through the fins but that just doesn't work. Can anyone tell me how I get the side panels off so I can clean the cotton from the coil? It is really PLUGGED big time with cotton and works constantly to cool a small house. Cotton was bad this year, maturing tree.
Thanks in advance for your help.
