Frigidaire FAC126P1 wall/window Air Conditioner - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


Leave it alone. DO NOT attempt to create a drain. As long as a window A/C unit is installed properly, (angled slightly down toward the rear) it will drain excess water over the rear lower lip of the unit should it get that high. Many models use some of the collected water/condensation. It gets lifted up by the fan blades to cool the coil.

window units slide into an outside frame section
there is a hose attachment area at the back of the ac unit proper that a hose can be attached to
and there should be a section in the frame that allows the hose to be fitted to that ac unit proper
the unit should be mounted so that it actually slopes slightly down at the rear so water can collect at that drain point
there are adaptors that should have come in the packing box for hose attachment
if not, many people use white poly piping or electrical conduit with suitable elbows to collect the water at the hole and pipe it back to the wall into a bucket and the collected water used to water plants and gardens

Look at the drain tube that goes between the evaporator side into the condenser side for obstructions if water puddles up on the bottom of the unit. Make sure the inlet air filter isn't plugged up too.

behind the dilter is the evapator and behind the evaperator and underneath is the pan that holds the condensate. look at the pan and see how dirty if it is then clean it . Check the evap coil to be certain it is clean . and double check that it is tilted enough . 1 inch or a bit more hope this help let me know

You need a step down transformer, to convert 220V to 110V. You can't just plug the 110V A/C unit in directly unless it is clearly marked as being suitable for multi-voltage supply (110V - 220V input).

Such a transformer has to be of sufficient capacity to handle the current, or wattage, that will be required. The Frigidaire unit in your question is a 3.5 kW cooling capacity, so the transformer would need to be about the same, ie for a 10A supply at least. They are quite big boxes, about $120.

You would put this in the roof or in a cupboard.

Hi Shawn:
A 110 air conditioner would only use 1/2 of the available 220, so , the answer is yes, with a great BIG CAUTION!!!!!
You have to know how to safely wire in the appropriate plug.
- 220 usually will have 4 wires: Red, Black, White, and Green.
You get 220 between the red and black, the White is available for 110 to drive a fan or whatever.
- 220 sometimes only has 3 wires: Red, Black, and green
Here you have 220 with no 110, like a baseboard heater.
- 110 has 3 wires: RED OR BLACK, White, and Green.
You get 110 between the Red or Black and the white.
The White is called Neutral.
Do not use the green wire as a neutral if there is no white.
The green wire is a ground and is for safety purposes.

PLEASE!!!! If this is not perfectly clear and within your ability, DO NOT TRY TO WIRE IT! Get someone who is trade certified to help you. Also, don't even think about messing with the wiring unless the circuit breaker is turned off..

Hello friend, thanks for the post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire air conditioner is rapidly turning on and off, this could be due to restricted air flow. First, I would check to make sure the air filter is clean because a restricted air filter could cause this problem. Secondly, check to make sure nothing is blocking the air flow like drapes, blinds, or furniture. Lastly, your condenser coil could be dirty or blocked I would make sure if it installed in the window that no bushes or trees are blocking the coil. I hope this helps. -Matt

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC126P1, is not draining water or collecting water near the coils. When your air conditioner was installed, you would have wanted to make sure that the top rail and sliding panels at each side were offset to provide the proper pitch to the rear of (5/16"). This is necessary for proper condensed water utilization and drainage. If you are not using the Side Panels for any reason, this pitch to the rear must be maintained! I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know if your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAC126P1, will drain if it is tilted at 5%. I also see that there is no water draining or collecting on the coils. When your air conditioner was installed, you would have wanted to make sure that the top rail and sliding panels at each side were offset to provide the proper pitch to the rear of (5/16"). This is necessary for proper condensed water utilization and drainage. If you are not using the Side Panels for any reason, this pitch to the rear must be maintained!

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire air conditioning, model# FAC126P1, is not cooling. First, try setting the temperature to a lower temperature. Secondly, make sure the compressor did not shut off by switching modes. Make sure it is on cool and wait approximately 3 minutes and listen for the compressor to restart. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your air conditioner status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

That unit appears to be pretty old. No manuals. I believe the outside cover will come off by prying around the edge and pulling towards you. Some have a foam type filter behind the grill that would need to be cleaned out as well

Why not just connect the appropriate size tubing to the lower drain port and hang it out of a window and don't worry about it anymore.

If you removd any knobs to clean the front panel, they may not have been reinstalled properly

You will need someone to unplug, mark the wiring to compressor, remove wires from compressor and OHM the compressor to see if shorting to ground, Sea Breeze
I believe it is shot!
