Frigidaire FG6RA Furnace Overview

The Frigidaire FG6RA is an upflow/horizontal gas furnace offering 80 percent AFUE. This freestanding unit is designed for installation in a utility room, basement or enclosed in an alcove or closet. It has more than 10 models available with inputs ranging from 45,000 to 144,000 BTU/H. Each unit is fired and tested before shipment.

Frigidaire promotes the unit’s clean and quiet operation, a result of the design of the in-shot burners, the location of the inducer, the return air vents, and insulation. A fully insulated blower cabinet also contributes to the quiet operation.

A hot surface igniter, heavy gauge aluminized steel heat exchanger, multi-speed direct drive blower, solid bottom base plate and diagnostic lights for easy troubleshooting are additional components of this unit. This system also is LP (propane) convertible through a factory-approved kit offered by Frigidaire.

Frigidaire FG6RA Furnace Reviews

"Piece of junk"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I bought this frigidaire FG6RA series unit new, 6 years ago. Have had nothing but problems since. Thought a name like frigidaire would give peace of mind. What a disappointment. Repairman coming back for the third time this month for an intermittent problem.
