Removed Styrofoam from A/C

The installation directions said remove all internal packaging. The EXTERNAL packaging had foam/styrofoam looking material and I assumed the styrofoam in the unit was internal packaging. Surely I can't be the only person who has done this. ?

Can I fix this?

And what is the internal packaging? The illustration is a joke.

Internal packagings, means in the box-- kits,--brackets--& foam packaging to prevent moving around during shipping or transportations ,and not the unit itself.

I thought the styrofoam inside the dehumidifier float was packing material & threw it away. Now my dehumidifier gets too full before the "full" sensor comes on. Can I replace the styrofoam?

Hi Kim - I understand that you removed the styrofoam inside the dehumidifier float thinking it was packing material, however I would recommend contacting the manufacturer to verify if it the part is available and can be replaced.

Columnar cushion - S-type styrofoam packaging material

S-type styrofoam cushion pieces are found in typical packing materials.
To create a columnar (collumn) shape, attach the individual S-shapes into a collumn.
The result is a single piece of cushioning material for placement where you need a continuous cushioning.

I have a Samsung Twin cooling french door fridge with the freezer drawer at the bottom. I notice that in the vents in the back cover where the cooling fans are you can see styrofoam. I am afraid that it...

This is normal, the vents are lined with styrofoam to help minimize loss of cooling when the air is circulated from the freezer section into the fridge section.

Most of the vent and cold air channels are made entirely from styrofoam these days in most fridges.

Most packing foam is in plain sight and usually held in place with tape, so it is highly unlikely that any packing foam would be behind anything mounted permanently in a fridge.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

i would guess that it would have to be removed as it would prevent the barrel moving freely and would be causing it to vibrate the machine.

What is internal packaging and what needs to stay? Frigidaire AC

It should be pretty apparent what comes off the unit. Pop the front cover by the filter and remove any styrofoam, paper and ties that might be there. Also make sure to remove anything that would prevent the coils from breathing properly. Its really simple, dont complicate it anymore than need be and worry yourself, everything that comes out is obvious.

Styrofoam inside of my Haier HWF05XC7

It should remain there it is the insulation seperating the condensing side from the evaporating side you may nve to reach in and move it around to prevent the destruction of the foam.

The antenna was embedded in the styrofoam holding the truck in the box. I don't know why they packaged it this way. Unless you are looking over the foam boxes pretty good you will miss it for sure and it's forever gone when you throw away the styrofoam packing. A real stupid way to package. I didn't see it and went to throw away all the packing and happened upon it. Hope this helps. I'm not the only one who has experienced this or even thrown theirs away.
