Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Does not cool at all

Gayla S 7/19/2020

I am so glad you asked, I have had this miserable unit for almost a month now, and have been unable to get in touch with anyone concerning it, no body will answer the phone, nor call me back, it is horrible, I have never seen a company act like this in all of m 66 years, I have no idea how they stay in business. I need it fixed or a refund, i do not want a replacement, i think there is a defect in these units, and it is a whole lot of trouble to install to have to then uninstall it. Just not right at all. I had a whirlpool unit that had been working for 18 years, when i took it out, it was still cooling, not so nowdays, they do not even work till the warrenty goes out, and good luck with said warrenty, they are no good if they will not answer the phone.

Omaira57 7/6/2020

This model replaced the one I had before. I had the old one for seven years before it stopped giving cold air. I thought it was time to replace it! Overall this new one is serving me well. No issues! Overall excellent unit. I bought it at a PC Richard's store. Customer service there is great! I look forward to enjoying this unit for years to come!

Terrible Unit avoid at all costs

panicredmonkey 6/14/2020

I was forced into this unit as a replacment and it would raise the humidity every time the compressor would cycle off about 4 to 7 percent each time it went of in a fully sealed room and so it was impossible to breathe with my asthma with this unit and was forced to remove it and stick it in the garage where it awaits disposal as it also leaked freon.

Problem with condensation

wschoen100 9/9/2019

Generally, the unit works ok. But, on the real humid days, the air conditioner drips water out of the outflow air stream area of the unit. Requires me to put a paper towel to absorb the water or it drips down the front. Does not drip a lot but it is something which I would not expect.

Frustrated and disappointed

Given Up 8/18/2019

My wife and I just spent a great deal of time writing at least 5 paragraphs describing our very unpleasant experience with this product. When we tried to upload photos to accompany our description, we lost all our work which just added to our frustration. In short, Amazon sent us a refurbished unit when we had ordered a new one. The box had been broken and there was a crack in the unit. It had been partly assembled, had hair and dirt on it, and had plumbers putty on the refrigerant line joints. Frigidaire first said they would help us. Then when they didn't follow up, they again said they would help. When again, they didn't follow up, they said they couldn't help and we should take it up with Amazon. We had to pack up the 129 lb box ourselves and get it back to Amazon. After having taken apart the unit, per the directions, and after wasting a great deal of time on the phone with Frigidaire and waiting for their help, and after having purchased and installed an extra bracket and having an electrician rewire our home for the unit, we have given up and will probably just put up with the heat rather than repeat this experience. We have photos of the damaged box, the cracked unit, and the ridiculous putty on the lines but this review box will not allow us to upload them. Very disappointed

Nothing like the older model

Dontbuythis12 8/8/2019

I bought this model to replace the older model FFRE1833S2 and I hate it. Installation was next to impossible with the instructions that it came with. You have to take it apart to install it the put it back together. And it™€™s very heavy. It™€™s also SOOO much louder than any air conditioner I™€™ve ever seen. The last one was quiet but this one is not. You can hear it in the other rooms when the compressor is on, then it makes a loud clunk when the compressor kicks off. I would love to return it but I ended up paying for installation and it™€™s heavy and it™€™s too late in the season to find another one. It. I called the number that was left in other complaints and spent an hour and 14 minutes on the phone with customer service (mostly on hold) just to be told that as long as it cools there is nothing I can do. Super disappointed with this purchase.

Works great

Hamster 8/8/2019

I had owned smaller BTU air conditioners, but they could never cool off my home. I finally decided to purchase a larger unit and am very happy with the Frigidaire 18,000 BTU. So far I™€™ve been comfortable all summer, even with three heat waves reaching over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The controls are easy to use.

So far... paradise!

COOLinFL 8/3/2019

At first, I purchased a portable unit for my garage in Florida. The space is standard 20'x20' with an 8' ceiling made of concrete block. The garage door is insulated as well as the floor of the attic space above. But the garage faces west and hits 95 by late afternoon. The 14,000 BTU portable ran for 15 hours and only hit 78 degrees. So I purchased this unit from Amazon. It came in two days, well-packaged and undamaged.WOW!!! With the garage door open, the space dropped 3 degrees in 20 minutes. In a few hours I can cool the garage from low 90's to 78. The remote is nice and shows the current temp of the room. The unit is relatively quiet since most of the unit is outside of the concrete room.One issue is relatively minor... the serial number is on a decal on the outside of the chassis which is anchoring and caulked into the wall. I didn't notice it while sliding it through the wall several times for leveling and tweaking, but when I realized what the decal was... it was too late... the serial number was scraped off and unreadable. Why the serial number is not inside the removable front grill is beyond me. Who wants to see an ugly decal? And on the chassis? Which is not really part of the AC? I don't get it. So, now, I can't register the unit with Frigidaire for warranty.The second issue is the drain hole. THERE IS NONE. This unit is designed to collect condensation and let the fan whip the water up to cool the coil. Perhaps it's efficient, but it's rather annoying to hear. Luckily, from inside the concrete garage, it's not very audible. But from outside, it sounds like rain on a skylight or rocks in a blender. I'm tempted to drill a hold in the pan although Frigidaire does not advise doing so.The unit has only been in for a couple of days, but already I'm delighted at the performance. Hopefully it will last many years... because without a serial number, it looks like I don't have a warranty.I tried to post a photo... but the site reported an error when doing so.

cherry96932001 10/9/2018

This air conditioner cools very well but after only 3 months it went out. Luckily it was covered by the manufacturers warranty. They sent a local company out and they took it and fixed it in a couple days. And now it works better than before. This was a replacement for an older frigidaire air conditioner my only complaint now is that there is no vent for when it is nice outside and I just want it to blow in fresh air instead of cool. Like the older model had.

Near perfection

Cool Rod 8/7/2018

This air conditioner is wonderful in that the features that are incorporated into its design make it almost automatic when it comes to climate control in our home. It does a wonderful job of keeping our home cool and comfortable just by setting the desired inside temperature and pressing the "automatic" button. It maintains the desired comfort level no matter what the outside temperature is by adjusting the fan speed and cooling ability by itself perfectly. It is strong yet quiet.....well almost quiet. My only complaint is that it makes a "clicking" sound when it is raining outside as though the fan was hitting something. I was told that the noise comes from the fan hitting water droplets because the housing that holds the unit has louvers in the top. I really don't believe that explanation as the machine is so perfect in almost every other way.
