For larger sleeves, an adaptor trim kit (EA120T) is available.
IMPORTANT
All wall sleeves used to mount the new Air Conditioner must be in sound structural condition and have a rear
grille that securely attaches to sleeve, or rear flange that serves as a stop for the Air Conditioner.
For new installations, a Frigidaire Sleeve Kit (EA108T) is recommended.
CAUTION:
When installation is complete, replacement unit MUST have a rearward slope as shown in Fig.1.
2. Remove old Air Conditioner from wall sleeve and prepare wall sleeve as follows:
Clean interior (do not disturb seals).
Wall sleeve must be securely fastened in wall before installing Air Conditioner. Drive more nails or screws through
sleeve, into wall, if needed.
Retouch wall sleeve painted surface if needed.
3. If not existing, drill a 3/16" clearance hole for grounding screw through left side of wall sleeve, in a clear area about
3 inches maximum back from front edge of sleeve, using grounding screw and toothed washer. Pull loose end
of ground wire out front of sleeve, and temporarily bend it down and around lower edge of sleeve (Fig.2). This
ground wire will later be attached to frame of air conditioner once it is installed.

IMPORTANT
This unit's increased performance characteristics result from having two rear air 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 there is an existing rear grille, it needs to be replaced by one that has been
shipped with the unit in the accessory kit.
FOR INCREASED EFFICIENCY, UTILIZE THE PROVIDED LOUVERED REAR PANEL

Direct Unit Mounting
The previous directions are the preferable way to mount the new rear grill. The unit’s performance is slightly better and
the possibility of draughts is reduced. As a last resort, direct mounting of the grille to the unit can be considered.
Note: The grille must be installed prior to inserting the unit into the sleeve.
