Frigidaire Air Conditioner - FAC102P1A Compact II th

When I unpacked the air conditioner from the box, there was some packaging taped to the sides. There is also packaging INSIDE of the unit and cannot figure out how to get it out. It's really hot and humid and I need to install and use the air conditioner. However, I can't' use it until I can get the packaging material out from inside the unit.

Please help!!!!

    I too have had the same problem with removing the packaging from my air conditioner. The manual states to remove all packaging from inside the unit, so we took the air conditioner apart and removed some of the heavy foam material and some just lifted right off and yet there are other parts we are having to cut away to get it out of the air conditioner. My question is, does this all come off and is it in there to support it during shipment, and, I actually have half of it off, should I continue or will it work the way it is????

    The instructions were not clear on what constitutes packaging inside the aid conditioning unit. Is it better just to leave all the packaging in the unit instead of taking it all out? Will it harm the unit leaving all that packaging in there in the long run?

    Do we or do we not remove any packaging from inside the unit? If so what specifically do we remove?

    Dealing with this very issue right now, and am amazed no one mentioned it at the Amazon review page. Consumers need to know about this nonsense. I sent a hot note to Frigidaire, never have I come upon such idiotic ambiguity. I'll post their response, provided I get one.

I spoke with the Frigaire support line 706 374-4432. They said that the large piece of styrofoam, that extends from side to side and nearly top to bottom, is part of the unit. It should not be removed.

Packing you may observe to be inside the unit may be there to prevent vibration during operation. Generally speaking manufacturers do not put packing in unaccessible places for home owners to remove.

Why must I use the cercut breaker button to turn off

Good Morning Friend,

I understand you have to turn off your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC126P1A, at the circuit breaker. You should not have to use the circuit breaker. You should be able to turn it off at the control panel. I suggest contacting the manufacturer directly, for further assistance. They should be able to point you in the right direction of having your appliance functioning correctly. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Window Air Conditioner Sweats

You need to seal the portion of the air conditioner that is inside the window from the portion that is outside the window, Sweating is caused by moist outside air leaking in and contacting the cold portion of the air conditioner. Do not use duct tape, buy aluminum tape which is what professionals use to seal air leaks on ducts. Home Depot sells the tape. Buy the smallest quantity you can find that will do the job ( it can be expensive ) unless you plan to go into air conditioning duct installation.

For best results use some form of insulation over the accordian like side baffles ( cut to fit) . Styrafoam from packaging or silver backed insulboard (Home Depot). Now tape the sides of the insulation to all sides of the window frame, bottom of the window, the sill, and the air conditioner.

Unless you enjoy doing this every year - plan on this being a permanent installation. It is a tedious job because the aluminum tape is not very forgiving and has a peel off backing but it sticks forever.
