Low Fan Only

- Low speed fan operation without cooling.

High Cool

- Cooling with high speed fan operation.

Med Cool

- Cooling with med speed fan operation.

Low Cool

- Cooling with low speed fan operation.

This automatically controls the temperature of the indoor air.

Turn the knob clockwise for greater cooling.

Turn the knob counter-clockwisefor more moderate cooling.

• FOR NORMAL COOLING

1. Turn the MODE Knob to the Med Cool setting.

2. Set the Temperature Knob to the desired temperature (the mid-pointis a good starting position).

If the room temperature is not satisfactory after a reasonable time, adjust the control to a cooler or warmer setting, as appropriate.

• FOR MAXIMUM COOLING

1.Turn the MODE Knob to the High Cool setting.

2.Set the Temperature Knob to the coolest temperature setting all the way to the right.

• FOR QUIETER OPERATION

1.Turn the Operation Knob to the Low Cool setting.

2.Set the Temperature Knob as needed.

The controls will look like one of the following:

Controls – Cooling & Heating

Off

- Turns the air conditioner off.

Fan Only

- The low fan speed operation without cooling/heating.

Low Cool

- Cooling with the low speed fan operation.

High Cool

- Cooling with the high speed fan operation.

Low Heat

- Heating with the low speed fan operation.

High Heat

- Heating with the high speed fan operation.

Turn the Temperature Knob to the desired setting. The central position is a normal setting for average conditions. You can change this setting, if necessary, in accordance with your temperature preference.

The thermostat automatically controls cooling or heating, but the fan runs continuously whenever the air conditioner is in operation. If the room is too warm, turn the thermostat control clockwise. If the room is too cool, turn the thermostat control counterclockwise.

The compressor will turn on and off to keep the room at the set temperature.

In the heating operation, the electric heater will turn on and off to keep the room at the set temperature.

CAUTION

When the air conditioner has been operated in the cooling or heating mode and is turned off or set to the fan position, wait at least 3 minutes before resetting to the cooling operation again.

A slight burning odor may come from the unit when first switching to HEAT after the cooling season is over. This odor, caused by fine dust particles on the heater, will disappear quickly. This is normal operation.

About the Controls on the Air Conditioner

Air Direction

The direction of air can be controlled by adjusting the horizontal and vertical louvers.

• HORIZONTAL AIR-DIRECTIONCONTROL

The horizontal air direction is adjusted by moving the vertical louver. The lever for the vertical louver is located in the right and left side of the air discharge.

• VERTICAL AIR-DIRECTIONCONTROL

The vertical air direction is adjusted by moving the horizontal louver.

Care and Maintenance

TURN THE AIR CONDITIONER OFF AND REMOVE THE PLUG FROM THE POWER OUTLET.

Air Filter Cleaning

The air filter should be checked at least twice a month to see if cleaning is necessary. Trapped particles in the filter will build up and block the airflow. This reduces the cooling capacity and can also cause an accumulation of frost on the cooling coils.

If the filter becomes torn or damaged you should replace immediately. Replacement filters are available from your salesperson, dealer, and the authorized customer service centers.

1. Open the inlet grille downward by grasping the top outside edges of the inlet grille and pulling it towards you.

2. Remove the air filter from the front grille assembly by pulling the air filter up slightly.

3. Wash the filter using lukewarm water and a mild detergent.

4. Gently shake all excess water from the filter.

Make sure the filter is completely dry and replace the filter back into the unit.
