1. Identify the wall-sleeve brand for your preparing, from the below chart.
- All wall sleeves used to mount the new air conditioner must be in sound structural condition and have a rear grille that securely attached to the sleeve, or rear flange that serves as a stop for the air conditioner.
- For new or replacement installations, a Frigidaire Sleeve Kit (EA108T) is recommended.
CAUTION When installation is complete, replacement unit must have rearward slope as shown in Fig 1.
2. Remove old Air Conditioner from wall sleeve and prepare as followings:
— Clean interior (Do not disturb seals).
— Check the wall sleeve is securely fastened in wall before installing. Add more nails or screws if needed.
— Repair painted surface if needed.
3. If the ground wire hole does not exist, drill a 3/16” pilot hole for the grounding screw through the left hand side of the sleeve, in a clear area about 3 inches max. back from the front edge as below. Pull the loose end of the ground wire out of the front of the sleeve and bend it away from the opening. This will be attached to the air conditioner once installed.
4. Install new unit into wall sleeve.
5. To attach ground wire to the new unit, remove the screw from the left side front.
6. Assemble and install the Trim Frame.
- This units increased performance characteristics is the result of having two rear intakes.
- It is very important that these installation instructions are followed so your unit can operate at maximum efficiency.
- If there is an existing sleeve and rear grille, please check whether the dimension is suitable or not, otherwise replace them.
Existing Frigidaire sleeves may have older single sided intake grilles, as pictured below
These grilles should be rep laced with the dual intake grille type, as below pictures.
- Remove the existing grille and save the mounting screws .
- Place the grille included with your new air conditioner towards the ins ide rea r of the sleeve.
- Attach the new grille by align ing the four mount ing holes .
- Re- insert the se lf-tapping screws into the nylon retainers
2. Grille Removal
Important: Single intake grille must be removed when used with dual intake TTW unit. Warning: When removing grille, protect from falling by securing with a leash. This can be fastened from cord or strapping looped through the grille and secured with a knot. Holding the grille by the leash with one hand the retaining screws can be removed and the grille can be brought inside through the front of the sleeve.
Direct Unit Mounting
In cases where the dual intake grille cannot be mounted directly to the sleeve it is desirable to attach the grille to the back of the TTW unit to the hole predrilled in the unit.
- Attach the 2 seals(1”x3/8”x14”), as Fig. 1.
- Position the grille over the rear of the unit making sure that: a. The double set of screw holes are at the bottom.
b. The intake fins on either side are pointed away from the unit.
- Align the top of the grille with the top of the unit. The overhang on each side is equal.
- If the unit has not been predrilled (some models),carefully drill 4-1/8” holes through the grille and into the side flange of the unit approximately 1 1/2” to 2” from the top and bottom, as Fig 2 or 3. (Be careful not to break the copper pipe)
- Install 4-#8 self-tapping screws to affix the grille to the unit.
- Insert the unit into the sleeve.
Grille to Sleeve Attachment
In cases where the dual intake grille fits inside the sleeve and the grille flange overlaps the sleeve flange, direct attachment may be possible.
If the suitable grille is not used, it may lead to product damage and possible failure.
- 1”x3/8”x25” long seal in the center at the top of the sleeve. Remove the back paper and press into position.
- 1”x3/8”x14” seals to the left and right sides of the sleeve.
- Cut 1”x3/8”x25” long seals to 14” long each and attach to the vertical sections of the grille as shown.
- 1/2”x3 1/2”x1 1/2” cantering blocks one on each side wall. Place in center of side wall with the tapered end facing the opening.
- Gently slide unit into sleeve.
Ground Wire Installation
- Install screw end of ground wire into inside of sleeve according to preparation instruction.
- Before sliding unit all the way back remove second screw from left side of unit.
- Remove plastic washer from screw.
- Screw the other end of the ground wire into the unit as shown. Make sure the toothed washer is against the cabinet.
- Slide unit completely to the rear.
Non-Frigidaire Dual Intake Grille
In case where the existing sleeve is a non-Frigidaire sleeve but is installed with a dual intake grille. The existing grille may be left in place. Make sure the outer 3 1/2” to 4 1/2” louvers are angled from the left and right sides of the sleeve toward the center, as Fig. 1. This provides proper flow of outside air into the unit. From the installation kit, apply two 1”x3/4”x14” seals along the flat metal flange of the condenser, as Fig. 2.
Insert the unit with the seal into the sleeve pushing it all the way to rear making sure the seals are against the rear grille. The seals are necessary to reduce recirculation of hot air into the intakes which would reduce system reduce system performance.
An option is to purchase 3/4” diamond cut aluminum grille and cut it to fit inside the sleeve. Secure it with screws. Attach the dual intake grill directly to the back of the unit. Slide the entire unit into the sleeve and seal with the stuffing seal supplied with the kit.
Trim Kit Installation Instructions
- Install the 1”x1”x84” long stuffer seal between the wall sleeve and the unit. A flat-bladed screwdriver or putty knife is needed.
- Assemble the trim frame by inserting the top and bottom pieces into side pieces and snapping into place.
- Pull the cord through the trim frame and slide the trim over the unit until flush with the wall.

CARE AND CLEANING
Clean your air conditioner to keep it looking new and to minimize dust build up.
Air Filter Cleaning
The air filter should be checked at least once every month to see if it needs cleaning. Trapped particles and dust can build up in the filter and may decrease airflow as well as cause the cooling coils to accumulate frost. To clean the air filter:
- Remove the filter by pulling down on the indents of the filter door on the front of the unit. (See )
- Wash the filter using liquid dish soap and warm water. Rinse the filter thoroughly. Gently shake the filter to remove excess water.
- Let the filter dry completely before placing it into the air conditioner.
- If you do not wish to wash the filter, you may vacuum the filter to remove the dust and other particles.
Wear and Tear
To minimize wear and tear on the air conditioner, always wait at least 3 minutes before changing modes. This will help prevent the compressor from overheating and the circuit breaker from tripping.
To clean the air conditioner cabinet:
- Unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or a fire hazard. The cabinet and front panel of the air conditioner may be dusted with an oil free cloth or washed with a cloth dampened in a solution of warm water and mild liquid soap.
Rinse thoroughly with a damp cloth and wipe dry.
- Never use harsh cleaners, wax or polish on the cabinet front.
- Be sure to wring excess water from the cloth before wiping around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the air conditioner.
