comment Easiest way to build an oddly-shaped shelf for cabinet above stove
One suggestion: to get the location and shape of the cutout for the duct right, make a cardboard template (manila folders work well) first, then trace onto MDF. You can make your mistakes with cardboard and scissors - then cut the MDF once.

comment What could be wrong with my air conditioner?
Was it the local installer that folded? Because the warranty probably comes from the equipment manufacturer. I would try to find the closest active dealer for the brand - they should be able to do warranty work.
