Just purchased a 15000 btu 110 Frigidaire window

window units slide into an outside frame section there is a hose attachment area at the back of the ac unit proper that a hose can be attached to and there should be a section in the frame that allows the hose to be fitted to that ac unit proper the unit should be mounted so that it actually slopes slightly down at the rear so water can collect at that drain point there are adaptors that should have come in the packing box for hose attachment if not, many people use white poly piping or electrical conduit with suitable elbows to collect the water at the hole and pipe it back to the wall into a bucket and the collected water used to water plants and gardens

AIR CONDIONER COOLES - DOES NOT TAKE OUT THE HUMIDITY

Look at the drain tube that goes between the evaporator side into the condenser side for obstructions if water puddles up on the bottom of the unit. Make sure the inlet air filter isn't plugged up too.

What do i have to do to plug my 110 air conditioner into where my 220 window unit

You need a step down transformer, to convert 220V to 110V. You can't just plug the 110V A/C unit in directly unless it is clearly marked as being suitable for multi-voltage supply (110V - 220V input). Such a transformer has to be of sufficient capacity to handle the current, or wattage, that will be required. The Frigidaire unit in your question is a 3.5 kW cooling capacity, so the transformer would need to be about the same, ie for a 10A supply at least. They are quite big boxes, about $120. http://welectronics.com/TRANSFORMERS/step-up-down.JPG You would put this in the roof or in a cupboard.

Can i plug a 110 air conditioners into a 220 plug in

Hi Shawn: A 110 air conditioner would only use 1/2 of the available 220, so , the answer is yes, with a great BIG CAUTION!!!!! You have to know how to safely wire in the appropriate plug. - 220 usually will have 4 wires: Red, Black, White, and Green. You get 220 between the red and black, the White is available for 110 to drive a fan or whatever. - 220 sometimes only has 3 wires: Red, Black, and green Here you have 220 with no 110, like a baseboard heater. - 110 has 3 wires: RED OR BLACK, White, and Green. You get 110 between the Red or Black and the white. The White is called Neutral. Do not use the green wire as a neutral if there is no white. The green wire is a ground and is for safety purposes. PLEASE!!!! If this is not perfectly clear and within your ability, DO NOT TRY TO WIRE IT! Get someone who is trade certified to help you. Also, don't even think about messing with the wiring unless the circuit breaker is turned off..

Why does my window ac is set on thermastat but comes on and off to quickly

Hello friend, thanks for the post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire air conditioner is rapidly turning on and off, this could be due to restricted air flow. First, I would check to make sure the air filter is clean because a restricted air filter could cause this problem. Secondly, check to make sure nothing is blocking the air flow like drapes, blinds, or furniture. Lastly, your condenser coil could be dirty or blocked I would make sure if it installed in the window that no bushes or trees are blocking the coil. I hope this helps. -Matt

My frigidaire window a/c has a drain hole but it doesn't drain and it is not collecting any water near the coils. Why is it not draining?

Good Morning Friend, I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC126P1, is not draining water or collecting water near 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. -Best Regards- WP

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!

How to I clean the blower vents on my fas257s2a window ac?

That unit appears to be pretty old. No manuals. I believe the outside cover will come off by prying around the edge and pulling towards you. Some have a foam type filter behind the grill that would need to be cleaned out as well

How do I take out a a.c filter to clean without damaging it

Good Morning Maria - Some air conditioner filters are removed by sliding out from the right-hand side. Others, you need to push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position and open the front panel. Grasp the filter by center and pull up and out the filter can be wash using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is thoroughly dry before replacing. Keep in mind that instead of washing you may vacuum the filter clean as well.

The heater won't heat in my window unit.

Hello Jim Hyde - Try pressing the reset button on the plug, if you haven't so already. If the unit continues to not heat up, contact a professional that works with your manufacturer to move forward accurately. Keep in mind that for some air conditioners the heating option is simply a supplement to help heat up a room but in most cases it will not completely heat up the entire room.
