  • What is the proper way to clean my air filter?

    The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is necessary. Be sure to unplug the unit before cleaning to prevent shock or fire hazards. To clean the filter, open the front panel and remove. The air filter is reusable and may be cleaned using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. After cleaning allow the filter to thoroughly dry before replacing. You may also vacuum the air filter to remove excess dirt and particles.

  • Can my room air conditioner be covered while in use to prevent outdoor debris from getting inside vents?

    Proper air flow into the air conditioner is essential for performance and safe operation. Under no circumstances should you block or cover any exterior or interior vents of the unit.

  • How does the power cord work on my air conditioner? When should I test the plug?

    For your safety all Frigidaire air conditioners feature a 3-prong grounding plug and current leakage detection device. These enhanced plugs help to detect damages to the power cord and can be tested following a few simple steps. 1. Press the reset button 2. Plug the cord into the power outlet 3. Press the test button, the reset button should pop up 4. Press reset button for use 5. Do not use room air conditioner if above test fails. For more information please consult your use and care manual.

  • What is the additional vent located under my air louvers?

    On select models, you may notice a small tab identified with Open / Fresh Air / Closed.

    This fresh air vent allows the air conditioner to: 1. Recirculate inside air - Vent Closed 2.  Draw fresh air into the room - Fresh Air  3.  Expel indoor air outside - Vent Open. Note: When in the cool mode fresh air venting or exhaust venting will affect cooling and decrease performance.

  • I have noticed water dripping outside of my room air conditioner, is this normal?

    Water dripping outside is a normal function of the room air conditioner, especially during periods of excessive humidity. If condensation need to be directed, window air conditioners have a key hole drain in the bottom of the unit where one could connect a ½” drain hose for safe disposal of excess system water.  Part: EA150D / 5304481680. Never drill holes into the bottom of the room air conditioner to remove water. If water is dripping inside the room during the cooling, this is due to improper installation. Please refer to installation instructions or check with your local installer.

  • I have noticed that my ENERGY STAR air conditioner is frequently in Econ mode?

    For all new ENERGY STAR products the EPA has regulated that all ENERGY STAR air conditioners must be factory set to Energy Saver (Econ) mode. If you turn the room air conditioner off in cool mode, and restart the unit it will default back into Energy Saver mode. You may select out of Energy Saver mode by selecting the mode button, however we recommend using the feature to help save energy. 

  • What is Econ mode?

    Econ mode, or Energy Saver mode, is a setting that works similar to central AC. The room air conditioner will turn off once the set temp is reached; the fan then cycles on (for 20 sec.) every 10 min to sample the air temp. If the room temp is above the set temp, the compressor will turn back on. Since the room air conditioner is not running at all times, this setting will help save energy while ensuring the room temperature stays at the set temperature.

  • What does the Clean Air button do?

    When this feature is on, the electronic air purifier is energized to remove pollen and impurities from the air. To cancel this feature, press the Clean Air button. 

  • What is a BTU?

    It is a professional term rating an air conditioner. BTU stands for British Thermal Unit - the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water one degrees Fahrenheit. The higher the BTU the larger space the room air conditioner will cool.

  • What size window unit do I need?

    The size of the window unit needed will depend on the size of the room you wish to cool. To determine which size you need, measure the width of the room by the length and multiply those numbers together to determine the square footage.  



  • What happens if I lose power?

    After a power outage, the unit will memorize the last setting and return the unit to the same setting once power is restored.  

  • What does Sleep Mode mean?

    When this mode is enabled, the selected temperature will increase by 2 °F 30 minutes after the mode is selected.  The temperature will then increase by another 2 °F after an additional 30 minutes.  This new temperature will be maintained for 7 hours before returning to the originally selected temperature.  This ends the “Sleep” mode and the unit will continue to operate as originally programmed.  You may also cancel sleep mode at any time by again pressing the sleep button.

  • Why is my room air conditioner making noise?

    Room Air Conditioners, during operation, may make noise.  It is normal to hear ‘high pitch chatter’ a sound of rushing air, gurgle/hiss, pinging or swishing and vibration.  These are all normal.  For more definition of noises, please refer to your product’s Use and Care guide.

  • How do I store my room air conditioner for winter storage?

    If you plan to store the air conditioner during the winter, remove it carefully from the window according to the installation instructions.  Cover it with plastic or return it to its original carton.  NOTE:   To prevent rust or electrical connections from being damaged, store air conditioner in an upright position and a dry place.

  • Why is my Filter Reset light on?

    This feature is a reminder to clean the Air Filter (refer to Care and Cleaning section of the Use and Care Guide) for more efficient operation.  The LED light will illuminate after 250 hours of operation. After cleaning the filter, plug the unit back into the power source and reset the filter by pressing the ‘Filter Reset’ button and the light will go off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Does What It Says This was a replacement for a discontinued model that failed. Getting support for the dying model was quite a chore; however, Electrolux covered it under warranty and sent a debit card to cover the cost for replacement. The new model slipped easily into the existing sleeve and cools the room. I couldn't ask for more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage I had this air conditioning units for over 2 years and now it stopped working. The compressor turns on but warm air comes out. It's impossible to get in touch with customer service to help me out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Compressor died after less than 3 months of use We purchased 5 of these Frigidaire air conditioners last year in February. As it was still winter and the weather was cold, we did not need to use the air conditioners right away. Then came June, all of the air conditioners seemed like they were working. However, less than 3 months after using the air conditioner, one of the air conditioner stopped working. We could not put our heads to think that the AC was broken as it was almost brand new and we had used it for only 3 months. We tried cleaning the filters but nothing seemed to work. Then came Autumn and we no longer needed to turn on the AC and eventually forgot about it. Now that summer is back we had our building maintenance staff inspect the AC. He said that the compressor was not kicking in. Its over 90 degrees out today. We really need the AC. I hope Frigidaire takes care of our AC at no cost as it would not be right to sell an air conditioner with a defect and charge the consumer for it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Two Stars - One for each year it lasted Very unhappy with this unit. Purchased it on 04/23/15. It died on 05/17/2017. Called you local repair center and was quoted $350 to repair (bad compressor), plus service call of $175. Cheaper for me to buy another unit, than to have this one repaired. My last unit worked for 11 years, this one only two years. Very poor workmanship. Very unhappy with Frigidaire Air Conditioners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cooling power I purchased this ac to replace another Frigidaire that failed... It took time but Frigidaire bought back the old one that was still under warranty which allowed me to buy a new Frigidaire ac. This new one works great with strong cooling breeze, good remote and not to loud.
