Why Your Frigidaire AC WiFi Not Working Plus Fixes

Consider these seven issues if you cannot connect your Frigidaire air conditioner to your home or office WiFi.

1. You’ve Entered the Wrong Password or Password Combination

You cannot connect your Frigidaire AC to your office or home WiFi if you use the wrong password. Remember, your password should feature special characters, which you must consider when setting up the password. 

More importantly, you must password-protect your WiFi before connecting the AC to it. If you don’t do that, then you cannot connect the Frigidaire air conditioner to the WiFi.


Counter-check the password you use to ensure it’s correct. If it’s not set or there are no special characters, reset it and try reconnecting the AC. (

2. You’re Connecting to The Wrong Network

You must connect to the right home or office network for the AC to work. Even if you get the password and username correct but fail to connect to the right router, your AC won’t connect. 


Counter Check your home or office WiFi connection to ensure you connect to the right router. If not, carefully re-enter the correct password and wait for the AC to connect to WiFi.

3. Your WiFi Router Is Out of Range (Long Range)

The router shouldn’t be too far when connecting your Frigidaire AC to WiFi. It should be within range so that you can connect to it fast.

Let’s face it; if your smartphone or smart TV can’t locate the router connection, then it’s out of range even for the AC.

Try to move your home or office router closer to the AC to establish a good connection. 

4. Your WiFi Connection Is Hidden

Sometimes, the router may be within range but hidden. For example, if the router is in another room or floor, you may have difficulty locating it and connecting the AC to WiFi. 


Ensure nothing blocks the router from the AC, especially walls. If so, consider moving the router to the AC or vice versa (if you have a portable Frigidaire AC).

5. Your Mobile’s Location Service Is Off

If you are using an Android phone to connect your AC to WiFi, it’s imperative that you turn its location service on when connecting the AC to WiFi.

If you don’t, you may have trouble establishing a connection between the AC and WiFi.


Turn your Android device’s location service on during connection if it’s off. 

6. Your Mobile Data Is On When Connecting

Unlike the location service, which should be on during connection, your mobile’s data connection should be off. You should only turn it on after connecting if you wish to. 

But as long as you are using the mobile device to connect your Frigidaire AC to WiFi, mobile data should be off. 


Turn mobile data off if it’s on when connecting.

7. You Are Using the Wrong Bandwidth

Lastly, it’s essential to check the bandwidth you are using. If you use 5GHZ, your Frigidaire AC won’t connect to WiFi.


Access your router’s settings and change the bandwidth to 2GHZ if it’s 5GHZ. If you aren’t sure, contact your internet service provider.
