2. PTAC AC Error Codes

Your Frigidaire PTAC has a computer on-board that continuously checks key components of the unit to ensure they are operating properly. Under normal operation, unit status indicator (STATUS, on main PCB), light is steadily ON. If there is a major problem, the unit will shut down and display a diagnostic failure code on the unit’s display. If it is a minor error and the unit can correct it by itself, the diagnostic code will be flashed on the status LED that can easily be seen when the front panel is removed. Failure STATUS codes are defined in the table below.

5.Care and Cleaning



Clean your air conditioner occasionally to keep it looking new. Be sure to unplug the unit before cleaning to prevent shock or fire hazards.

Air Filter Cleaning:

The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is necessary. Trapped particles in the filter can build up and cause an accumulation of frost on the cooling coils.

  • Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position(where applicable).
  • Open the front panel.
  • Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.
  • Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is thoroughly dry before replacing.
  • Or instead of washing, you may vacuum the filter clean.

NOTE: When replacing the air filter after cleaning, make sure the tabs on the air filter are on the upper part of filter, and placed outward as shown in the drawing on the left side.

Cabinet Cleaning:

  • Be sure to unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or fire hazard. The cabinet and front may be dusted with an oil-free cloth or washed with a cloth dampened in a solution of warm water and mild liquid dishwashing detergent. Rinse thoroughly 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.
  • Plug in air conditioner.

Winter Storage:

If you plan to store the air conditioner during the winter, remove it carefully from the window according to the installation instructions. Cover it with plastic or return it to the original carton.
