The following Frigidaire A/C is 19 years old. I have no manuals and don't know the model # or capacity.
The unit works fine, but I can't figure out how to remove the front cover. There are no visible screws,clips, etc. Any help will be appreciated.

The front cover will just unsnap off. Start at the top with your hand and pull forward.

Thanks. I removed the filter which is located below the control knobs and noticed a hidden screw at each end. I will remove those before I attempt your suggestion.

Tomorrow we are supposed to have a heat index of around 114 degrees so I probably won't attempt to remove the cover until the temperature breaks.

Put your hands where the arrows are and pull forward The bottom piece should come off that's where the filter is.

The arrows are pointing to the filter handle. I had to lift up on the handle to remove the filter. This removed only the filter, not the cover.
The filter is approximately 2' wide.

OK, if there's screws there that's probably how it comes off. How about a picture or two so I can see what's there?

That might just to be to hold separate parts of the grill together.

Most of the units I seen, if there's no screws around the cover's edge, the cover just pushes/snaps into place. By the looks of that one I'd suggest gripping the side edges of the cover with your finger tips, pry the cover wider slightly (there won't be much play) while pulling the cover away from the unit. Maybe use your thumbs against the mounting to get a bit of leverage.

I hope that helps.
