Abstract A temperature sensor fixing apparatus of an air conditioner constructed with a temperature sensor being inserted between a vaporizing unit and a front panel for detecting the temperature of room air infused through a suction inlet of the front panel, the apparatus including a sensor holder integrally protruded at one side of the suction inlet of the front panel for fixing a temperature sensor apart at a predetermined distance from the vaporizing unit and being positioned in the middle of the vaporizing unit, thereby eliminating additional molding cost for manufacturing a separate sensor holder, preventing any contact from being made between sensor holder and vaporizing unit to avoid any deformation of the vaporizing unit for a defective product and preventing the temperature sensor from functioning its false operations by getting in contact with the vaporizing unit.
