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.

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.

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.
Good Afternoon Friend, this is Z. That's a great question!
I show that your Frigidaire air conditioner FAA067P7A has a cooling capacity of 6,000 BTU's. I hope this information helps to some degree. If you need further assistance, please feel free to reconnect.
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.
