Question about Frigidaire FAH085N1T Air Conditioner
I just bought a Frigidaire FAM157S1A window AC. After it is already out of the box and you remove the base from the cabinet, the instructions say to remove all internal packaging from the unit. The picture is unclear, but I can make out some plastic ties close to the motor that I did not even have. There is some black styrafoam around the coils on my unit and a strange putty type material. I feel like both of these things could melt or catch fire, so I feel like they should be removed, but am unsure.
It is not obvious!! i just bought the same unit.the picture is not clear! the foam behind the radiator in the front looks like it is a part of the unit and should not be ripped out.i tore mine out and messed up the unit .it is either for noise reduction or a cooling box for the air ?? the manual is not clear.also why would they make a unit that you need to tear apart by removing factory installed assemblies to get at foam. this foam is engineered to fit perfectly around all the peaces and i say it stays! this is a very crappy problem that i blame the producer for not making crystal clear. i worked for a major tooling co for most of my life and i have never seen anything so un clear with the info they provide.

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.
