Answer

I know the instructions don't mention it. But I figured out it the little black box with suction cups is the pump. I just dropped that hose and pump into the tank after I filled it up and started it. I was unable to stick the suction cups to the side by myself. If 2 people are doing it, I'm sure you could attach it. I love mine. Works great.

Can you add ice to the water tank to help with the cooling?

Asked by Jody July 16, 2019

Answers

Yes, ice cubes can be added thru the side access. They will float and melt fast so they shouldn't interfer with the pump. It's easier to add the ice cubes than the two ice packs that came with the unit.

Simple, reliable, well designed evaporative cooler
You'll find a huge variance in opinions on evaporative coolers. I live in CA and have used the cooler in San Francisco (very humid, 45 - 65 percent humidity) and Sonoma (dry during the day, 25 - 35 percent humidity). Evaporative coolers work best in hot and dry climates. In SF, the cooler keeps the air humid and the temperature more stable - but it doesn't do a great job cooling a 1,050 sq/ft loft (to be fair, that's not a reasonable expectation for this unit anyway). In Sonoma, the unit consistently keeps a large living room and kitchen 4-5+ degrees cooler than the rest of the house and raises the humidity 5-10 percent. On a hot dry day, this feels like a huge difference. It's the nice cool "walk in the front door" feeling you want when it's hot outside. The unit itself is well designed and sturdy. As others point out, it's taller than you think it is. The fans are really powerful, which also means you'll hear them. But they move a lot of air around quickly which is great. Critiques, as others have noted, the water basin under the fan can be difficult to access if you want to add cool packs. Also, the display lights are a very faint red so they're difficult to read in moderate sunlight and hardly visible in brighter light. Overall, it's a great value and I'm really happy to have something to help beat the summer heat and keep the air comfortably cooler and humid.

You should get one if you live in a dry area.
I bought this unit [ Frigidaire ] to help with the Newair 14000 BTU AC/ heater to cool down a custom travel trailer made from a 24 cargo trailer. I just figure if the Newair 14000 BTU AC use water to help cool the AC. The evaporative cooler would help in this very dry area of Nevada. Boy what huge difference it made. I'm very happy I did, it works beautifully as a team between those two. I run both at the same time. So far in hot days of 109 thur 104 I can get the trailer down to 75 degrees with no problem. It takes about 35 min to do so.

Works well, had it about 3 weeks, everything so far is great. The only down fall is, it evaporates the water fast so filling up more then I would like to.

Quality product!
I was a little hesitant when getting this, but I was quickly reassured!! Super easy to put together, don’t let the size intimidate you, like it did me. Takes about 5 minutes to put together and you can pretty much go right into using it!! It’s surely helped keep us cool through this hot, Arizona summer. My kids beg me to move it to their rooms! It will be a product we enjoy and use more months than not! Highly impressed.

Life Saver for Hot Summers in Arizona!
Air conditioners do not do well in very dry locations. Everyone around here uses swamp coolers. This unit is exactly what is needed in dry climates without spending a fortune on a wholehouse unit. It is portable and easy to move. It looks sleek and modern. It holds a lot of water so you don't have to refill it very often and is easy to fill. This is very energy efficient, which is great since I am on solar power so cannot run an air conditioner. You can feel the cool air from across the room. My dogs love laying in front of it. The fan is powerful but fairly quiet. It will cool a medium size room down pretty quickly. The air comes out about 3 feet off of the floor which is good because it clears the bed and blows right on you. A lot of other models are too short so you have to put the cooler on a table to blow on you while you are sleeping. Also, it comes with a handy remote so you don't have to get up to turn it on and off. Overall, I love this unit. It makes the house comfortable even in over 100 degree heat. @newairusa #newairusa

Big Room
I live in a 3 bedroom apartment that does not have the best AC unit. I wanted something to give it a boost in the kitchen and dining area because I cook often. What I love about this air cooler and fan is that I can move it from room to room where it's needed the most. At night, I roll it to my bedroon. I live alone so I really only need to keep one bedroom cool. This air cooler lasts and lasts water wise. I can fill it up and not need water for a long time. I do add the water coolers to mine as well as ice to make it cooler. It works perfectly and I'm 100 % satisfied with my new Frigidaire Air Cooler and Fan.

Works amazingly
We loooove the evaporative cooler! It's easy to put together and works great. It's absolutely perfect for our hot, dry summers. Plus it can easily be wheeled from room to room. I only wish the directions were a bit more specific, because they didn't say what to do with this blue tube. But customer service was amazing and respondes quickly (you don't have to do anything really, it just goes in the water tank). I can't wait to see how much we save on air conditioning costs!

It’s a little bigger than I expected, but well worth it since it actually cools my room off. My room is next to the garage & it’ll be 110 out soon yet I feel prepared & say bring it. Haha my favorite part is the 13 gallon water tank. I’ve had it for over a month now & I just had to refill it for the first time since I filled it up when I got it. I definitely recommend this product for anyone that has tried everything to lower the temperature in a room where nothing else has worked. Oh it is pretty loud too. That doesn’t bother me cause I’m a heavy sleeper but it’s something to keep in mind.
