what is the three prong electrical plug

product number?


Answer : LCDI 6-20P Plug


Answer : It is a 230-250V /20amp socket. When looking from front of plug, the ground hole/slot is on the bottom, the the left slot is vertical and the right slot is horizontal.


Answer : I picked up an air condtioning outlet to replace the existing air condtioning outlet from Lowes. This outlet can be used for several plug configurations. This is a 220 volt unit. I have a 200 amp system, and it does not dim the lights when it turns on. Cooper Wiring Devices 20-Amp White Single Electrical Outlet Item #: 65748 | Model #: 1876W-SP-L


Answer : We had to buy a 220 wallplug to plug it into and found one at ACE hardware for $5.00, just have to match up the prongs to the wallplug you buy.


Answer : Take a picture of the plug and go to any hardware store and they can give you the correct outlet. just make sure that you have at least a 220 line dedicated solely to this outlet!


Answer : same plug as any standard electric stove has, two slants prongs on top and a "L" shaped ground beneath



can this unit be put in a six inch wall?


Answer : This unit will work with a wall up to 8 inches thick.


Answer : Yes, max. thickness for wall is 10".


Answer : I dont see why not if it is properly supported and all elements of support are considered. The situation needs to be evaluated by someone who understands before the unit is ordered to be sure it will work and if it will work to be sure all materials necessary for the installation are on hand when the unit arrives


Answer : There is at least six inches beyond the louvers.


Answer : Yes, we installed into the wall of our garage as our windows were to small.


Answer : Yes, I installed it in an eight inch wall.



Does this unit slide into a case or is it one solid unit


Answer : it slides out of the case for installation and service.


Answer : It's a slide out chassis, I mounted the chassis 1st then slid the AC in and put 2 screws outside in preset spots to lock it in place...


Answer : It slides into a frame. It's a pretty sizable unit.


Answer : slides in.


Answer : It's one solid unit


Answer : It has a case and the refrigeration unit slips into the case from the inside of the building



Can't miss

This unit does a great job of cooling a large area and maintaining a comfortable indoor climate. I haven't had a chance to see a utility bill on it yet but it has to be better than the one it replaced which by the way the old one was 200lbs. heavier and twice as noisy. How can you beat a .97 cent delivery in two days from placing the order.


Keeps Me COOL in Texas!

Installed easily inside window, went to cooling within minutes. Have owned this A/C all summer( 4 months) I live in Texas and it gets Hot. Quiet working unit. Temp on display can be turned down to 60 degrees. The only thing I have found about it that I would change is the filter light comes on weekly for cleaning. Even when it looks clean. It really does what it says it can.


Great Product, Great Price and Cools Excellently!!

I priced air conditioners from Sears, Lowes, KMart, Home Depot and this was the best overall price verus BTU and this product works Great and was easy to install as long as you have two people to lift it up as heavy for one comfortably to lift. We are cooling a 3 bay garage and very pleased. Now my husband, son and father-n-law can work on their projects to their hearts content!!!!


The amps on this unit are 20. It is not spoken about in the specs on the web page. The 1st thing you notice after unboxing and placing this bohemith, is the plug will not go into a normal outlet. To use this unit you will need to replace your outlet and replace the normal 15 amp circut breaker with a 20 amp circut breaker and run heavier wiring from the breaker to the outlet. The unit is probably a good one but make sure you're set up for it before you make the purchase.


Works Great - Cheap Components- Poor Investment

This product works well. It cools, has a nice remote, looks good and is relatively quiet for a large unit. I purchased this unit because it fits my application and my existing opening and could be quickly installed during a hot South Florida summer. I am aware from past experience that it is not designed or constructed to the quality standards one expects from this type of major appliance. The first unit of this model I purchase lasted 4 years. The one I am now replacing lasted 16 months. Frigidaire customer service is far from impressive. They give you an 800 number to call which directs you to call a non 800 number. The long hold times suggests that problem products may lead a lot of customers to call. I suggest shopping carefully to find an air conditioner that will fit your needs that is not so likely to corrode and fail in a short time. The sheet metal cabinet will quickly corrode as will the components in the base of the unit, including the coils. The unit arrived with a damaged cabinet. It was frustrating getting a replacement and the replacement which appears to be usable arrived with some minor damage. The reason for the cabinet damage is the item is constructed from light gauge metal that will rapidly corrode. I have installed and lived with many air conditioners in the same environment and never have encountered anything like the inferior construction of this Frigidaire unit. The unit fits in the cabinet I now have installed. The cabinet is the sheet metal enclosure into which the unit slides in and slides out. That cabinet was installed with the first unit 5 years ago and is falling apart from corrosion and will be replaced. The ease of installation explains why I knowingly purchased a such an inferior product. It does work very well during its short life span.


Very fast delivery.... works very good.. In current heat-wave... left on low and still cools large living room, kitchen and hall way... love.... wife loves how quiet it is compared to the same model in 2004.


So far, very satisfied ...

It has cooled our living, dining, kitchen, and bedroom, very well, when the heat index has been hitting over 105 degrees ... it runs quietly, and on eco, cycles on, and off, to maintain our desired temperature ... easily installed, by my wife, and me, in about an hour ... so far we are very impressed with our new Frigidaire FRA256SV2 High Efficiency 25,000-BTU 230V Heavy-Duty Room Window Air Conditioner, and would recommend it to a friend, without hesitation. Thanks Walmart for carrying an excellent product, at a fair price. And, that is why I have given this purchase a 5 STAR rating !!!


Great AC Unit

Bought this as a replacement for a smaller BTU unit that we had at the Cottage up north. Very happy with the purchase so far. Prior to install it had been weeks of 100 deg days but since it has been more liveable so haven't needed as much. But would recommend this to anyone.


Good for larger cooling area.

Great features and one of the highest SEER ratings for a window unit.\nCaution : This unit will take two people to install and also a 220volt/20amp receptacle.


A very cool prduct

I purchased this A/C unit as a replacement for one that gave up the ghost after 14 years of service. The unit was easy to install, required no rewiring or other modifications, and was up and running in slightly less than an hour. The unit is a bit quieter than our old one, it cools the room faster, and the temperature display on the remote is a nice touch. Over all, I'm happy with it so far, so I'm cool!


Product does deliver as expected.

This product was chosen for the previous reviews of quietness. Fan noise is within expectations with the exception of a rattling sound as if something small and plastic were against the fan blades. This turned out to be caused by the directional vents in the front cover of the unit vibrating in the air flow. I used a piece of the sealing foam supplied with the unit to dampen the loose plastic. All is now very quiet. Unit was shipped and handled at the store ON IT'S SIDE. Shipping box was clearly marked to ship and handle bottom side down as it is a refrigeration unit. Had to let it sit for 12 hours due to that. I also do like the units ECO mode.


An absolute BEAST of an air conditioner

This thing is big (and heavy), with performance to match. It puts out lots of very cold air, and I have a hard time imagining the cooling task it couldn't handle. For comparison, I also have the 12,000 BTU unit and there really is no comparison - the other unit is also good, but this unit is just far more powerful. But interestingly, this unit doesn't remove moisture from the air like the 12,000 BTU unit does. I've had both for over a month and the 25,000 BTU unit hasn't even removed a quart of water (in total for the month), whereas the 12,000 BTU unit removes about a gallon every 6 hours.\n\nAs for mounting, the unit slides out the sleeve, and you work only with the sleeve for mounting (which makes mounting much easier), but you will likely need 2 people to lift the unit into the sleeve once the sleeve is mounted.\n\nIn summary: Great performance and features, and fairly easy/manageable mounting. I would absolutely buy one again if I needed.


Love it! Arrived in perfect condition

Cools 1000 square ft first floor quickly with aid from a floor fan. I needed to change the electrical outlet to be able to mate with the AC plug, so be prepared to have an expert handle this for you. Not all windows are created equal so be prepare to make some modifications regarding the provided support brackets (this applies to all large AC anyway). Much quieter than my old AC.


Great A/C for living room, TV room and more.

Very quiet to run, turns on and off according to temp. I haven't received my first electric bill but I am expecting a pleasant surprise. It gets cold very quickly and even with fan speed on low. I am very happy that I bought this A/C.


Quiet air conditioner, arrived in two days.

I ordered this air conditioner to be delivered to my home. The web site predicted a five day delivery, but it arrived in two days! As expected, it is a big honkin' unit which will require two strong individuals to install.\n\nThe unit operates very quietly compared to our old units, and cools quickly and efficiently. I'm very pleased so far, and would recommend this unit to anyone.


Works Really Well.....

Although I am not a big fan of these newer AC units being made out of styrofoam and plastics, this AC really cools good....I replaced a 6 year old LG with this one and it is colder and quieter than the other one was when new. I also really like the auto fan setting....it runs on slow when the room is cool and speeds up as cooling is needed.. Not made out of much but I am old school and all new AC units disappoint but I believe this unit is about as good as new ones get...


The product description is accurate.

This unit easily replaced my aging 24,000 btu central air conditioner.


good product. good price. works fine.


i lived with central air till ex and i split bought old house about 950 square feet two story gas heat but no air . money is tight so bought window air conditioner 25.000 btu today it is 93 degrees heat index is 104 this airconditioner is worth every penny. came home from work house was chilly. THANKYOU FRIGIDAIRE bob 56 years ohio


It's HUGE, but...Cools house in minutes!!!!

This was an amazing value even though it's insides are made mostly of plastic and Styrofoam, the quality of the electrical and cooling components make up for that.\nI ordered this unit Thursday morning and I only paid $0.97 for shipping, and the package (141 pounds) arrived Friday!!! I was in shock I got overnight delivery (Fedex Home Delivery) for 97 cents, I must live close to the warehouse...haha\nMy son and I installed it in a few hours (you need two people, to lift this baby!) and had it running in no time. It was cold the day we installed it, but we used it with the fan-only mode and the "Air-Cleaner" feature on; because my wife and I smoke and it annoys our daughter. When she walked out of her room she couldn't smell any smoke until she came downstairs, then we got her lecture of the horrors of smoking, that she has learned in college. But that proved to me, beyond a reasonable doubt, that that air cleaner works.\nWe turned on the a/c today, and this thing blows ice cubes!!! Wow it got so cold so fast we had to shut it off...I can't wait till the super-HOT days of summer, so I can enjoy the clean cold air this unit provides.

This unit easily replaced my aging 24,000 btu central air conditioner.


Works Really Well.....

Although I am not a big fan of these newer AC units being made out of styrofoam and plastics, this AC really cools good....I replaced a 6 year old LG with this one and it is colder and quieter than the other one was when new. I also really like the auto fan setting....it runs on slow when the room is cool and speeds up as cooling is needed.. Not made out of much but I am old school and all new AC units disappoint but I believe this unit is about as good as new ones get...


A very cool prduct

I purchased this A/C unit as a replacement for one that gave up the ghost after 14 years of service. The unit was easy to install, required no rewiring or other modifications, and was up and running in slightly less than an hour. The unit is a bit quieter than our old one, it cools the room faster, and the temperature display on the remote is a nice touch. Over all, I'm happy with it so far, so I'm cool!


Good for larger cooling area.

Great features and one of the highest SEER ratings for a window unit.\nCaution : This unit will take two people to install and also a 220volt/20amp receptacle.


Great AC Unit

Bought this as a replacement for a smaller BTU unit that we had at the Cottage up north. Very happy with the purchase so far. Prior to install it had been weeks of 100 deg days but since it has been more liveable so haven't needed as much. But would recommend this to anyone.


So far, very satisfied ...

It has cooled our living, dining, kitchen, and bedroom, very well, when the heat index has been hitting over 105 degrees ... it runs quietly, and on eco, cycles on, and off, to maintain our desired temperature ... easily installed, by my wife, and me, in about an hour ... so far we are very impressed with our new Frigidaire FRA256SV2 High Efficiency 25,000-BTU 230V Heavy-Duty Room Window Air Conditioner, and would recommend it to a friend, without hesitation. Thanks Walmart for carrying an excellent product, at a fair price. And, that is why I have given this purchase a 5 STAR rating !!!
