Questions & Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Came With Design Flaw and Wouldn't Work The unit came in undamaged, but upon installing, the compressor would only run for 2-5 mins and kick off for an extended period of time. This was regardless of mode or temperature settings. I then noticed the condensor fan wasn't spinning at all - upon looking through the top vent slats, I could see the fan rotation was being blocked by one of the hard compressor lines. I was able to use a flathead to pry the line out of the way and it now functions as normal. However, I have no idea if the life of condenser fan motor was damaged by not being able to spin while trying to use the unit. Now that it works, it is very quiet a CD does a great job cooling. I'm leaving a low rating because this is definitely a design flaw and QC issue that should have been caught. I've now seen other reviews explaining the same problem. Update Months later - The remote control is falling apart (the adhesive holding the face/number pad on isn't holding). The unit has also developed a "wooshing noise" that only goes away when you leave the front panel open (filter is clean and there's no obstructions).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from problems I have 2 frigidaire air conditioners - the 6,000 btu is great - the 8,000 has problems. At intervals it is very noisy, when I went to clean the filter, some of the fins were bent. It also does not keep the temp. correctly. I set it at 77 econo and auto fan - did not go on - temp in room was 81, did not go on until I set it on 74.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from After replacement still the same problem! I first bought this unit in July of 2018, then after two months of use this loud inconsistent whisping sound started to come around. After about a week, it was intolerable and I contacted frigidaire. They replaced the unit and I didnt use it until the second half of this summer 2019. After one month of using the replacement unit the exact same thing started happening! It is so loud and inconsistent of a sound, it is unbearable. I have contacted frigidaire again and they will replace it but I have to cut the chord on my current unit before initiating the replacement process which can take up to 10 days. In the middle of summer that is not possible for us. I am seeking a refund but no one seems to be able to answer that for me. I contacted a corporate supervisor based in georgia and she absolutely useless. She outright accused me of returning this unit every season. What would the point of a replacement be if this problem keeps happening! I am astounded at the lack of professionalism and customer satisfaction. I have attached a video with the sound. The sound happens whether the air compressor is on or off. It is impossible to sleep through this! This is the replacement they sent me and still the SAME problem! I WANT A REFUND!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and cools my whole house I bought this air conditioner last August so I’ve been using it a year now. I am surprised by how cold the output air on it is, I’ve done HVAC work and I took the temperature of the output air and it was 3.5 degrees Fahrenheit, very cold but plausible since R410a’s boiling point is -55f. The unit cools my whole 880 sq ft house to 73 even on the hot 95 degree high humidity days. We never get up too 100 up here in NW Wisconsin and it’s rare to go above 90 but it happens a few times a summer and it’s often very humid too. I bought my unit on Amazon’s Warehouse Deals so I got it for a deep discount and am very happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool and whooshing I can't stand an air conditioner's drone. I need the cooling but love the quiet so I purchased the Frigidaire Quiet Temp because of it's very good quiet ratings. Yes it is pretty quiet and it cools our room quickly, but similarly to another review, it has an odd on and off whooshing sound which occurs both when the compressor is on or off. It is not constant but it occurs on and off all night which can be annoying. It's just an odd, but fairly quiet inconsistent sound, in addition to the regular compressor and fan sounds that are very quiet. If it didn't have this on and off whooshing sound all night this AC would be a 10+.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet, great for bedroom. We purchased this unit for a bedroom where we wanted it to be quiet. We could not be more please. The unit is quiet, efficient and works great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE BUZZ!!!! FGRQ0833u1 Something is wrong with the compressor - my friend has one. After a month he got a terrible buzz too! All models FGRQo833u1 are not good, They discontinued it but took our money knowing it's junk!! I tried taping the belt that comes out of back to the side, that worked for a while. Simple fix - but doesn't last. NOT quiet if it buzzes loudly. Cust. service knows this about the buzz/compressor I just talked to them! Made me 2star on revewi.
