Prevent Accidents

To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using your air conditioner, follow basic precautions, including the following:

  • Be sure the electrical service is adequate for the model you have chosen. This information can be found on the serial plate, which is located on the side of the cabinet and behind the grille.
  • If the air conditioner is to be installed in a window, you will probably want to clean both sides of the glass first. If the window is a triple-track type with a screen panel included, remove the screen completely before installation.
  • Be sure the air conditioner has been securely and correctly installed according to the separate installation instructions provided with this manual. Save this manual and the installation instructions for possible future use in removing or reinstalling this unit.
  • When handling the air conditioner, be careful to avoid cuts from sharp metal fins on front and rear coils.

Electrical Information

The complete electrical rating of your new room air conditioner is stated on the serial plate. Refer to the rating when checking the electrical requirements.

  • Be sure the air conditioner is properly grounded. To minimize shock and fire hazards, proper grounding is important. The power cord is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for protection against shock hazards.
  • Your air conditioner must be used in a properly grounded wall receptacle. If the wall receptacle you intend to use is not adequately grounded or protected by a time delay fuse or circuit breaker, have a qualified electrician install the proper receptacle.
  • Do not run air conditioner without outside protective cover in place. This could result in mechanical damage within the air conditioner.
  • Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug

DANGER! Avoid Serious Injury or Death

  • This air conditioner contains no user-serviceable parts. Always call an authorized Electrolux servicer for repairs.
  • Do not insert or place fingers or objects into the air discharge area in the front of the unit.
  • Do not start or stop the air conditioner by unplugging the power cord or turning off the power at the electrical box.
  • Do not cut or damage the power cord. If the power cord is damaged, it should only be replaced by an authorized Electrolux servicer.

Air Conditioner Features


Before you begin, thoroughly familiarize yourself with the control panel and remote control and all its functions (as shown below). The unit can be controlled by the touch pad alone, with the remote control, or with the Frigidaire app*.

*Refer to the Quick Start Guide that came with your Smart Air Conditioner for detailed instructions on setting up your air conditioner for connected operation from your smart phone or tablet.

Battery Size: CR2025

Turn Remote Control upside down. Squeeze tab and pull to remove battery tray. Place battery in tray with POSITIVE(“+”) side facing UP, according to diagram. Re-insert battery tray.

Operating Instructions

The following instructions represent the touch pad. The same instructions can be used for the remote control.



NOTE: The unit will run in energy saver(econ) mode when powered on each time, if last shutdown is in cool or energy saver(econ) mode. In this mode, the fan will continue to run for 3 minutes after the compressor shuts off. The fan then cycles on for 90 seconds at 10 minute intervals until the room temperature is above the set temperature, at which time the compressor turns back on.



Note: The display will show the set temperature during normal operation, press either up ( ) or down ( ) button to adjust the set temperature to the desired setting. The unit will beep twice if the temperature up ( ) or down ( ) button is pressed continuously when the set temperature reaches the upper/lower limits 90°F or 60°F.





Note: Fan starts at High Speed and adjusts to a slower speeds the room temperature dictates. For example, if the room doesn't get too warm, it will stay at the slowest speed. If the room temperature rises quickly, such as a door being opened, it will automatically go to the highest speed. The fan speeds will re-adjust back to the slowest speed as the room returns to the original set temperature. Press either the fan slower or fan faster button to adjust the fan speed manually.



Note: Use this function only when cooling is not desired, such as for room air circulation or to exhaust stale air on some models. You can choose any fan speed you prefer. (Except “Auto Fan”). During this function, display will only show the actual room temperature and the set temperature can not be changed.



Note: In this mode, the fan remains on all the time with the compressor cycling on and off when room temperature is reached.


The unit is factory set to run in eco (energy saver) mode. We recommend leaving the unit in eco mode to help save energy and money. However, if you would like to switch out of eco mode, touch the button until another mode is selected.

In eco mode, the fan will continue to run for 3 minute after the compressor shuts off. The fan then cycles on for 90 seconds at 10 minute intervals until the room temperature is above the set temperature, at which time the compressor turns back on.


Note: This feature is a reminder to clean the Air Filter (See Care and Cleaning) for more efficient operation. The LED (light) will illuminate after 250 hours of operation. To reset after cleaning the filter, hold the " reset filter" button 3 seconds and the light will go off.


If the display reads "AS" , a sensor has failed. Contact your Authorized Frigidaire Service Center.


If the display reads "ES" , a sensor has failed. Contact your Authorized Frigidaire Service Center.



Note: The control is capable of displaying temperature in degrees Fahrenheit or degrees Celsius.


After 60 seconds of control inactivity the display and indicator lights will turn off. Press any button on the control panel or remote control and the display will resume. Please note that if the unit is in eco mode and the set temperature has been reached the unit may appear off. However, the unit is on and will continue to sample the air every 10 minutes. To confirm, press any button on the control panel or remote control to illuminate the display to show unit in eco mode.



Note: After the unit is turned off, the light on the display will gradually fade away in 3 seconds. The unit will always return to “eco” mode and “auto” fan speed setting when it is turned on again.


Now that you have mastered the operating procedure, here are more features in your control that you should become familiar with

  • The "Cool" circuit has an automatic 3 minute time delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping. The fan will continue to run during this time
  • There is a 2-Second delay for the compressor shutting down when selecting FAN ONLY. This is to cover the possibility of having to roll through to select another mode.
  • The control will maintain the set temperature within 2 degrees Fahrenheit, between 60°F and 90°F degrees.
  • After a power outage, the unit will memorize the last setting and return the unit to the same setting once power is restored.

Fresh Air Vent Control (on some models)

The Fresh Air Vent allows the air conditioner to:

1. Recirculate inside air - Vent Closed (see Fig. 1)

2. Draw fresh air into the room - Fresh Air (see Fig. 2)

3. Exchange air from the room - Vent Open (see Fig. 3)

Air Directional Louvers

Air directional louvers control airflow direction. Your air conditioner has the louver type described below.

Slider Type

The louvers will allow you to direct the airflow Up or Down and Left or Right throughout the room as needed. Drag the adjuster tablet until the desired Left/Right direction is obtained. Pivot horizontal louvers until the desired Up/Down direction is obtained.

Care and Cleaning

Care and Cleaning

Air Filter Cleaning

The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is necessary. Trapped particles in the filter can build up and cause an accumulation of frost on the cooling coils.

  • Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position(where applicable).
  • Open the front panel.
  • Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out
  • Wash the filter 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
  • Or instead of washing, you may vacuum the filter clean.

Cabinet Cleaning

  • Be sure to unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or fire hazard. The cabinet and front may be dusted with an oil-free cloth or washed with a cloth dampened in a solution of warm water and mild liquid dishwashing detergent. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry.
  • Never use harsh cleaners, wax or polish on the cabinet front.
  • Be sure to wring excess water from the cloth before wiping around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the air conditioner.
  • Plug in air conditioner.

Winter Storage

If you plan to store the air conditioner during the winter, remove it carefully from the window according to the installation instructions. Cover it with plastic or return it to the original carton.

Energy Saving Ideas

  • Do not block airflow inside with blinds, curtains or furniture; or outside with shrubs, enclosures, or other buildings.
  • The capacity of the room air conditioner must fit the room size for efficient and satisfactory operation.
  • Install the room air conditioner on the shady side of your home. A window that faces north is best because it is shaded most of the day.
  • Close the fireplace damper, floor and wall registers so cool air does not escape up the chimney and into the ductwork.
  • Keep blinds and drapes in other windows closed during the sunniest part of the day.
  • Clean the air filter as recommended in the section “Care and Cleaning”.
  • Proper insulation and weather stripping in your home will help keep warm air out and cool air in.
  • External house shading with trees, plants or awnings will help reduce the air conditioner’s work load.
  • Operate heat producing appliances such as ranges, washers, dryers and dishwashers during the coolest part of the day.
