Window A/C drainage

Installation manual states "Top rail & side panels are offset to provide proper pitch to the rear of 5/16 inches...necessary for proper water use & drainage."
1) What does 5/16" translate into as an ANGLE , or when using a level ?
(Top & bottom rails are flush, side panels fit easily into window frame.)
2) Manual photos (1915 B.C. quality) show no drain point....Where does
water drain out of the unit, so I don't wake up to find a soggy outlet ?

If your window a/c unit is tilted at 5% will it drain properly


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know if your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC126P1, will drain if it is tilted at 5%. I also see that there is no water draining or collecting on the coils. When your air conditioner was installed, you would have wanted to make sure that the top rail and sliding panels at each side were offset to provide the proper pitch to the rear of (5/16"). This is necessary for proper condensed water utilization and drainage. If you are not using the Side Panels for any reason, this pitch to the rear must be maintained! I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

How do i replace the window motor


This is a common problem with driver side window. Its just a wear and tear problem. Don't go to the dealership, the Regulator will cost you over $230. Go to Amazon.com and search for the part number which should cost you only $70-80 or so. If you go to a glass place they will charge you dealership price plus $150 per hour.
