Where is the condensate line on a Frigidaire wall air conditioner?
There is sometimes a plastic hose between the evaporator and condenser side on the bottom of the case. Other models simply have holes in the metal for condensate to drain into the condenser side . Make sure there is no obstruction to the hose or holes. If you find none, then check the level of the unit. It MUST be slanted so the back of the unit is lower than the front.
Model FAZ12HS2A. When in Heat mode, why does it blow cool air?
Hello J, thanks for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire air conditioner is not emitting the proper air when in heat mode. I would recommend performing a reset on your air conditioner and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord. Once you have removed the power cord, press the reset button and then the test button. You should then be able to plug it back into the wall and start it up. If you continue to have issue with it an electrical component may need to be replaced and I would recommend this be completed by a professional technician. They would have the knowledge on how to properly disassemble the air conditioner without any harm. Good luck! -Matt
My frigidaire air conditioner is making my apartment feel damp and when i took my filter out to clean it that part was damp too! What do I do to fix this?
You may have a clogged drain or the unit is installed without enough angle pitch for the water to drain to the back of the unit toward the outdoor section of the unit. I'm assuming it's a window air conditioner? The moisture condenses on the cooling coil near the filter and should drip down into a condensate drain pan, then the water should drain to the back of the unit into a pan at the condenser coil fan that is rejecting the heat outside. The fan blade usually has a ring on the outdoor fan that pick up the condensate moisture the fling accumulated water onto the hot condenser coil to evaporate it. Also the filter should not be touching the cooling coil. Make sure it in the correct slot. Some a/c cooling coil require a wetting agent that allow the water to slide down the coil and not pull off of the coil into the indoor circulating fan.
Why my air conditioner it's dropping water?
Condensation is normal but window air conditioners bases must be tilted to the outside of the window so the condensation drains outside. The drain hole in the pan can plug with dirt overfilling the pan allowing the water to leak inside your home.
I bought a new thermostat that requires a C wire. I have a spare wire in the cable that goes from my thermostat to my air handler. It's a Model B3BM-O36K-B Frigidaire model air handler.
At your AHU there may be a terminal block that has a C terminal. If not, you will need to locate C. Your outdoor units control wire should have 1 that connects to the Y signal allowing 24v to pass from Y at the t-stat to a wirenut at the air handler, from that wirenut to the contactor. And C comes from the contactor to a wirenut at the airhandler and to C side of transformer. Common wire colors from o.d.unit are red=24v and White from the o.d. unit, (NOT THE WHITE FROM T-STAT!) is the common. The transformer may also have a tag/sticker that states 24v and common with a color of wire for C. And if the t-stat takes batteries that you need to install, you shouldn't need C wired in. C is there so you don't need batteries, if it has a battery option.
I need the deminsions of model fas296n2a2
Hello David, thank you for your inquiry!
Based off my understanding you need the dimensions of your Frigidaire air conditioner, FAS296N2A2. I was unable to locate that information. I would recommend performing a generic search online to locate the dimensions. Best of luck! -Matt
Error F8 on a Frigidaire AC model FASE24C6****
Good Afternoon Konrad,
I understand that you are receiving an F8 error code on your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FASE24C6. I also see that it will work for hours before displaying F8 or sometimes only minutes before displaying the error code. The F8 tells me that there might be a key stuck. I suggest resetting your air conditioner, by unplugging it for 3-5 minutes. Plug your appliance back in and start any cycle. 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 air conditioner status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.
