Friedrich Wallmaster Thru the Wall AC - Do Other Brands/Sizes Fit?

Hi All,

I recently moved into a place that has a Friedrich Wallmaster Thru-The-Wall Air Conditioner - WS16B30A that isn't really working (link for that make/model is below). Under the features at that link it says "Exact fit for Fedders sleeves. Measures only 27" W x 16 3/4" H."
https://www.abt.com/product/17850/Fr...30A.html?tab=1

My question is, can I replace the existing unit with another brand that has a different size? For example I am looking at a Frigidaire with dimensions of 20.5 D x 24 W x 14.5 H inches.

Thanks in advance for any advice and help!

Are you renting? If so, contact your landlord. Fixing or replacing the AC should be their responsibility. If it's your job to replace you should at least get written permission to modify the hole in the wall to fit the new AC.

Yes, you can replace the existing with a different sized AC but you will have to fill in the extra space in the wall opening. Since the new one you choose is smaller it's a pretty easy job.

very unlikely that you can find anything that will fit.
