To maintain fresh and clean air, it is recommended to clean the air conditioner filter and upper cover every two weeks. Please check the type of air conditioner and filters you have before starting the cleaning process.

The video guide below is for Samsung wall-mounted air conditioners that have the Easy Filter Plus and the PM 1.0 filter.

Easy Filter Plus and PM 1.0 Filter

For the efficient functioning of your air conditioner, it is important to keep the filters clean.

A wall-mounted air conditioner with Easy Filter Plus contains:

  • Easy Filter Plus (free filter)

A wall-mounted air conditioner with PM 1.0 Filter contains:

  • Pre-Filter
  • PM 1.0 Filter

Note: Clean the filters every two weeks or when the CF (filter-cleaning reminder) appears on the indoor unit display.

Before beginning to detach the filters, press ensure that the indoor unit is powered off. Turn off the device and unplug the power cord.

 Dust and clean the filters

If the filters are covered with excessive dust, use a vacuum cleaner or brush to remove it.

  • Soak the filters in lukewarm water and leave them for about 30 minutes after adding neutral detergent.
  • Rinse the filters under running water. If necessary, use a soft brush to remove excess dust.
  • Dry the filters in a well-ventilated shaded area. Keep the filter out of direct sunlight.
  • Ensure the filters are completely dry, otherwise they may smell bad when inserted back into the air conditioner.


Tips & Tricks
An extra tip for cleaning any paper type filter is to remove or clean the the dirt and dust in the opposite direction to the air flow direction when the filter is fitted, as this will reduce the wear and tear of the paper fibres. Even though they are designed specifically for the required removal of contaminants from the air, as the contaminants are caught/trapped by the filter there is although minimal rubbing/wearing as air passes through the filter the less particles that pass through the filter the longer the filter will last and the more money you will save and that means more money to spend on the things you enjoy like your wife or kids or the never-ending bills that just don't stop, nah! Go get some hot chips and ice cream and head down the beach lol
