How can I tell the age of a Fujitsu air conditioner from the serial number?
Saturday, June 23, 2018
Most companies encode the year of manufacture in the serial number, but Fujitsu does not. You can call the Fujitsu Service Department, at (866) 952-8324, with your serial number and they will give you a date. They advised us that the heat pump condensing unit with serial number “KRN016885,” shown below, was shipped in January, 2013. Only an ordering or shipping date for a system, not a date of manufacture, can be provided by Fujitsu.
You can also access the information online by entering the serial number (with no spaces) at the Fujitsu Warranty Lookup page, but older and out-of-warranty units may not be in that data base.
For the age of another brand or manufacturer, go to our blog post How do I determine the age of my air conditioner?
To determine the rating in tons of your Fujitsu unit, go to What size in tons is my Fujitsu heat pump or air conditioner? And to figure out what all the other numbers listed on the condenser data plate mean, go to our blog post How do I understand the air conditioner or heat pump condenser label (data plate)?
