      Q:Why does this unit leak so much from the front?
      by|Nov 5, 2022
      3 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello! If your air conditioner is leaking from the front, it is a sign that the appliance is not installed properly. Tilting the appliance to the outside and reducing the humidity in the room are ways to alleviate this issue. If you need further assistance, please contact us via Live Chat Monday-Friday 8:30 am-8 pm EST, and we will dive right in. - Damon

        A:  It's supposed to leak water. It's installed wrong if it's getting in the house

        by|Nov 8, 2022

          A:  I really cannot help you with this problem because I never had the problem, but I can make a suggestion. Perhaps it is not tilted enough on the outside.

            Q:In a previous answer to my question, FrigidaireSupport mentioned a keyhole drain in the bottom of the unit. My unit (FFRE053WAE) doesn't have that unless it's one of the three circular objects in this image. Is this what you're referring to?

            Answer This Question

            A:  Hello! We cannot see any photos you attached. It is normal if excess water is dripping out the rear corners of the AC. If it is properly installed, any water not reintegrated into the cooling system and evaporated should run to the back and drain outside your home. If any water is dripping inside or at your sill, please refer to your installation instructions and make sure the AC is properly tipped back. If you need more help, feel free to contact us directly by Live Chat or by phone at 800-374-4432 Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 8:00pm EST! ~Ashton

              A:  Uploading photo again. Water is dripping out of two weep tubes that are built into the unit.

                Q:I installed this model properly with a rearward tilt of several degrees. I found that excess water that collects inside the unit drips from what look like two weep tubes on the bottom of the unit. Is this normal? It's soaking my window sill.

                Answer This Question

                A:  Water dripping outside is a normal function of the room air conditioner, especially during periods of excessive humidity. If condensation needs to be directed, window air conditioners have a few keyhole drain locations at the back for excess to drip out. If water is dripping inside the room during the cooling, this is due to improper installation. Please refer to installation instructions or check with your local installer.

                by|Sep 30, 2022

                  A:  I don’t have that problem. I would check the angle. May be it is tilted towards the inside. If so put a piece of strapping or something thinner so it tilts yo the outside. Suggest making it the full width or get some foam to seal

                    Defective
                    Seriously? How could the manufacture NOT inspect the merchandise before they box it up? Obviously the "front panel" was manufactured SKEWED. The far left top and sides are aligned to the body, but the very top far right side of the panel curves upward. I am extremely hesitant to purchase another one until they can tell me they have their QUALITY CONTROL people doing their job.

                        Excellent cooling capacity and efficiency
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I installed my new Frigidaire FFRE053WAE in a bathroom. It does a great job cooling the room and an adjacent dressing area. I like the fact that you can direct its output upwards so it does not blow directly on you. I also like the Eco function because it allows the air conditioner to rest between cooling cycles. The unit is a highly efficient Energy Star model that uses only a modest amount of power. I installed the air conditioner through the wall, which was quite challenging to do properly, as it is not designed as a through-wall unit, and there are no instructions for installing it that way. But I'm very happy with the final result, and it is very secure. In my opinion, Frigidaire should develop a through-wall air conditioner and sleeve of this same cooling capacity (5,000 BTU), a type of product that does not currently exist, as far as I know. Frigidaire should reduce the width of such a through-wall unit from the current 16-1/2 inches (for the FFRE053WAE or FFRE053WA1, without sleeve) to a total of 14 inches (with sleeve) so it would fit in a standard wall-stud space. Such a product would be unique in the market and might sell extremely well to people who need to air condition a small room and don't wish to sacrifice a window to do so.

                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Perfect for an upstairs bedroom where it gets so hot. Love that the fan has a spiraly thing to point in all directions. The foam insulation for the side panels is awesome. Fits snug and looks clean

                            Small yet mighty
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this AC when a heat wave hit my region early in the summer. My home is older with smaller rooms and windows that can retain the heat on a very hot day. This unit cooled the space quickly and fit perfectly in my window. It was also easy to install.

                              Not bad
                              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I live in nevada and the heat wave is crazy right now 100 degrees every day. Usually I have to turn the a.c. down or in fan mode because I freeze. I had someone help me install it because my window is a huge sliding window. The filter is hard to get in and out so don't install too close to wall like I had done. I wish the vents would tilt down it's right over my bed and only tilt up a little and the directional swivels don't direct air enough. Wished I'd gotten the 6000 bcu because it's so hot right now. I have a very small bedroom too. The remote is very handy.

                                Does the job but eco mode not perfect
                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a small bedroom for this to cool. It definitely can do the job, but I have noticed that in eco mode it does let the temperature creep up several degrees which is not ideal.
