There are various places on both window and central air conditioners that you can look to find your Frigidaire unit’s model number.
Frigidaire air conditioners range from simplistic, but effective, to high-end and modern, which makes the brand a versatile choice.
However, once you have purchased a Frigidaire air conditioner, it is important that you know where the model number of your air conditioner is located, in case you ever need it or need information from it.
Is Frigidaire a good air conditioner brand?
Frigidaire is one of the top HVAC companies in the United States. The brand has a limited catalogue of products compared to other similar brands, but it is well-known for producing simple yet efficient air conditioner models that build on the success of the models that came before them.
Some of the Frigidaire air conditioners like the Frigidaire FFRE0833S1 8 000 BTU 115V Window-Mounted Mini-Compact Air Conditioner, have simplistic features, but still have high customer ratings, because they are effective and easy to understand and use.
Other models, like the Frigidaire GHWQ083WC1 Inverter Quiet Temp Smart Room Air Conditioner 8 000 BTU have a sleek design and many technologically advanced, modern features, like Wi-Fi compatibility and auto-swing louvre settings, which makes the brand well-rounded.
Where is the model number located on Frigidaire air conditioners?
Even though the brand’s product range is not the largest, it can still be difficult to narrow down which Frigidaire air conditioner model you have by simply looking at pictures of the range of models.
It is also worth noting that the model numbers in owners’ manuals are not always correct or complete and that when you need your model number so that you can purchase replacement parts, it is imperative that you get your model number exactly right to avoid buying parts that are not compatible.
This is why it is important to know where the model number of your specific Frigidaire air conditioner is located on the physical unit itself, so that you can check it when you need to.
With regard to Frigidaire window and central air conditioners, the locations of the model numbers are usually as follows:
