Answer: 
It's supposed to be fully adjustable, but in practice it doesn't seem to make any difference. The air flow is strongest on the left side. Nothing can make it blow toward the right side (if facing the AC). Once the whole room is cooled it doesn't matter which way it blows, but in the begining I wish it can be directed to where I normally sit.

yes each one can move up & down but the real neat thing is that the circle things can also be directed to move the air in any direction you want. so you have two ways to each side to direct your air flow. i love it!

Answer: 
yes, it makes a little clicking sound as you adjust the vent range. There are also screw like vent directors that change the angle of air flow within the vents themselves as opposed to a simple left-right switch.

Answer: 
The side panels are there because the AC unit is not as wide as the window. So when you open the window to put the AC unit in, there's space on each side. The side panels block that open space to stop air from flowing in and out around the AC unit.

My window measures 14 height x 17.5 length. The dimensions of this a.c. seem to be 12 height by 16 width. Will this fit my window?

Why does it say the minimum opening width is 23 inches?

I am really looking for a unit that is 6000 BTUs and fits in my window, does Frigidaire make that. If not, I'd love it if this one would fit in my window.
Thank you.

Answer: 
I think you may have misread this as the maximum opening using the panels that come with it .The unit itself is exactly 16 inches in width ,plus a 1/4 inch on each side ,(the tabs that hold the expanding panels ) I prefer to use wood I can insulate to save on energy cost ,as the panels are just a thin vinyl .And have zero insulation value .

Answer: 
i think it says wider because it has the shutters that expand from the sides. if the a/c itself says it is smaller than your window you should be okay, just dont use the shutters. if frigidaire doesnt make a 6000 btu i think it makes a 6500btu. my mom got that one last year. i couldnt wait to get new ones this year after seeing how great hers worked. i hope this helped.

Thanks for your answer and saying it would fit. That would be great, but are you sure it will fit? I'm thinking the casing is larger and adds the extra inches and therefore it wouldn't fit.

The side fins add the extra inches. The side fins however are not attached to begin with and are not necessary to hold the air conditioner in the window (the top tab does that).
The unit itself would fit in your window, you would just need to find something to close the 1.5 inch gap that would be leftover. It does come with some foam that may be enough for this purpose, if not you could always buy Read More

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 69 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Unable to remove filter after installed The filter is removed from the side of the unit rather than the front. After installing the unit, when I tried to pull out the filter it hit the window frame. The only way to get the filter out was to slide the unit all the way to the left in the window, then bend the filter when removing and installing. When bent, the filter catches on the metal frame and will tear over time. The filter plastic also feels like it will break over time when bending like this. I can't use the unit due to the filter layout. My walls are 1' thick. This problem may not exist with 4" walls. I also did not find a water drain on the back of the unit. I'm not sure where the discharge water goes, but it needs to go somewhere. There are two fan speeds. Both are loud. There should be a third fan speed which is slow and quiet. I will return the unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect little unit for a one car garage. Perfect little unit for a one car garage. The timer is a great feature because garage gets warm in the afternoon(or when ever you want to work in there) - we can just set it for a few hours and not have to remember to turn it off. Also we have an ice machine in the garage and this unit helps keep it cool when the ice machine kicks on AND a great little unit for hurricane season. Just pop it out of one window and put it in another room. Runs great off the generator! Picture shows unit on with timer (5 hours). April 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works (I do mean WORKS) for me! This air conditioner works great for my little bedroom (approx 100 sq ft). I have a slider window but discovered a way to install it that didn't cost much and still secures the window. It has only been installed 1/2 day but I'm loving it so far! I thought the idea of a remote was silly but am discovering it has its advantages. The small size is actually kinda cute. It's ideal for a small area like mine. The only thing I would change is I wish it had a reverse fan to exhaust stale air. June 5, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Keepin' me cool in the heat My Frigidaire window AC unit has been doing a great job keeping me cool. Only thing is that it is a bit loud, but as long as it gets the job done, I'm a happy girl. It has more features and the temperature can be adjusted much more than most window units I have seen. The remote is awesome and so easy to use and operate all the way from your bed. June 15, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by doesn't last Cools like a much larger unit. Convenient remote, easy operation. Energy saver setting is great. Can be installed by one person. BUT, the reset button burns out easily. I bought 2 units. One quit after 2 months of use, the other lasted 1 1/2 seasons. Both had a problem with the reset gizmo on the cord - a big SNAP and the thing was dead. Possibly a fuse? I would have assumed that I'd just gotten a lemon, but the units were bought at 2 different stores in different years. Will try to get an appliance repair store to replace the cords. Too bad they have the short-life plug problem, otherwise these are great little A/C's. July 4, 2011
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Energy mode is very loud, try a GE instead I have had several Frigidaire AC units before but never had one in a small 13 X 10 bedroom. We got the smallest available so that it wouldn't be loud. We also wanted it to be an Energy Star appliance. However, the energy saving mode is so loud on starting up that it can't be used at night, which is when it was purchased to be used. Unfortunately the packaging on this item is poor so the first time we received it the back venting was all dented. It had to be returned but the second one we got also had denting but we kept it. The CR reviews all had GE AC units at the top for this 5000 BTU level of power but it was harder to find. Frigidaire units are fine for larger spaces but for a small room it is a waste of money. June 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cool product Our whole house AC stopped working at the end of last summer so this summer came and we had no way enough saved for a whole house AC replacement. My wife and I looked around and thought this would be a good place holder till we saved up but to our amazement this window AC cools our 2 down stair rooms quite comfy and runs very smoothly (meaning quite). I'm disabled so I spend a lot of time in these two rooms during the day. We are quite pleased with Frigidaire products on a whole as this is our third Frigidaire product this year. June 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great smaller a/c with remote & energy saving button this is a great small a/c unit that has all the features of the bigger ones. i had a price comparison and coupn to purchase it with and the online service member was easy to deal with. i received it quickly and that was nice. the only thing is that it doesnt sit correctly in the window ledge like the bigger ones but with the weather guarding that is included it worked just fine. it keeps my bedroom real cold & with the energy saver button i can sleep comfortably. it also has a timer and a sleep button. it also tells you when you need to clean your filter. best little a/c you can get!
