Comments about Frigidaire 10,000 BTU Slider/Casement Air Conditioner:

When I told Frigidaire that the unit breaks after less than a year's usage (this is third time) they told me that there wasn't a problem because it had not been recalled.

To be more specific, it is the fan, not the compressor, which seems to be the culprit. It sounds like a freight train and might be caused by a problem with bearings or a bushing.

I was surprised last year when I contacted PC Richard from whom I had bought my unit to be told by their service department that these units are not repairable. They are replaceable. It is a good thing that I had purchased a service contract which includes unit replacement but for a large fee. My problem is not with PC Richard, which has been extremely responsive and helpful, but with Frigidaire which seems to have one-year obsolescence built into these units.

The salesperson at PC Richard informed me that I am not alone in having this problem. He believed that your unit is not made as well as those from other manufacturers and that it is common that consumers, like myself, have become annual customers to replace their Frigidaire units.

For your information it cost me a delivery charge, an installation fee and, of course, the amount difference (this time) in going from a 10,000BTU to 12,000BTU unit. On top of that I had to take out a new service contract for the replacement unit. As a retired person with a fixed income, I can not afford to keep on paying for defective Frigidaire products on an annual basis.

Since Frigidaire is the only manufacturer of casement/slider units left since Freidrich exited that section of the marketplace, I am stuck with buying it for my casement window. So much for the definition of a captive audience.

Frigidaire "Correspondence Specialist" referred me to read the care and cleaning tips in the owner's guide to help keep up the maintenance of the appliance, I was expecting a more user-friendly response including more specifics.

Since this is not the first time that I have had to replace this unit, my simple conclusion is that there is a fault in either the quality of the materials used in the unit's manufacture, or in the design of the unit. If my experience is combined with the experience of others who have bought this unit are comparable, then perhaps Frigidaire should consider recalling the units and replacing them with units that last for a minimum of five years or even more.
