WARNING: Before operating your unit

Make sure the wiring is adequate for your unit.

If you have fuses, they should be of the time delay type. Before you install or relocate this unit, be sure that the amperage rating of the circuit breaker or time delay fuse does not exceed the amp rating listed in Figure 1.

DO NOT use an extension cord.

The cord provided will carry the proper amount of electrical power to the unit. An extension cord will not.

Make sure that the receptacle is compatible with the air conditioner cord plug provided.

This insures proper grounding. If you have a two prong receptacle you will need to have the circuit replaced by a certified electrician with a grounded circuit that meets all national and local codes and ordinances. Under no circumstances should you remove the ground prong from the plug. You must use the three prong plug furnished with the air conditioner.

For the best cooling performance and highest energy efficiency

Keep the filter clean

Make sure that your air conditioner is always in top performing condition by cleaning the filter regularly. Instructions for removing and cleaning the filter can be found on page 5.

Provide good airflow

Make sure the airflow to and from the unit is clear. Your air conditioner puts the air out at the top of the unit, and takes in air at the bottom. Airflow is critical to good operation. It is just as important on the outside of the building that the airflow around the unit exterior is not blocked.

Unit placement

If your air conditioner can be placed in a window or wall that is shaded by a tree or another building, the unit will operate even more efficiently. Using drapes or blinds on the sunny side of the dwelling will also add to your unit’s efficiency.

Insulation

Good insulation will be a big help in maintaining desirable comfort levels. Doors should have weather stripping. Be sure to caulk around doors and windows.

How to operate your Friedrich room air conditioner

To start unit

If your air conditioner is installed and plugged into a properly grounded receptacle, it is ready to operate.

Mode control

This dial allows you to select cooling at three different speeds, as well as Fan Only.

Off- turns the unit off.

Hi Cool- for quick cooling.

Med Cool- to maintain a desired temperature.

Lo Cool- when demand is low.

Sleep Setting- for night time use, or when demand is low.

Fan Only- will circulate air in the room without the compressor coming on.

This setting can also be used with the EXHAUST air setting to remove stale air or smoke from the room; or it can be used with the FRESH AIR setting to bring outside air into the room. This is especially useful in the spring and fall when cooling may not be necessary. The FRESH AIR and EXHAUST controls are in the upper air discharge area. The center position of this control is the normal, or closed position, which recirculates air for maximum performance in the cooling mode.

Temperature control

This dial is the thermostat. Turn it clockwise for cooler temperature and counterclockwise for warmer.

Money Saver® switch

This rocker switch can be depressed to either Yes orNo.Figure 2 TheYes position provide the most economical operation.

Both the fan and compressor will cycle on and off together, maintaining the selected temperature at a more constant level and reducing the humidity more efficiently. This control will only operate when the unit is in a Cool mode. In theNo position, the fan will run constantly as long as the unit is in the cooling mode.

Removing and cleaning the filter / fresh air and exhaust feature

To remove, wash and replace filter and return air grille

Open the return air (RA) grille by grasping it at the top outside edges and pulling towards you (See Figure 3a). The RA grille will stay open until it is detached or closed (it is easier to completely detatch the grille before closing it). To remove the RA grille, grasp it at the bottom and pull towards you.

The filter is held in place by two spring clips (See Figure 4). Push down on the clips, grasp the filter and pull towards you to remove it for cleaning. Clean with warm water and a mild detergent, rinse, dry completely and replace. Use caution when removing the filter. The internal metal components are sharp.

If the RA grille has been removed, pick up the grille by supporting it from both sides near the bottom (See Figure 4, Note 1). Lift return air grille and insert the grille's tabs into the bottom slots of the discharge air plenum (See Figure 4, Note 2). Snap the grille into place by pushing the grille up and onto the unit's latches at the bottom (See Figure 4, Notes 3 and 4).

Fresh air and exhaust control

Your air conditioner has the ability to bring fresh air into the room and exhaust stale air out of the room. The control lever is found on the upper part of the unit (See Figure 5).

TO BRING IN FRESH AIR - Move the lever to the FRESH AIR position which allows outside air to enter the room. This is useful in fall and spring as a means of bringing in fresh outside air when using FAN ONLY. It can also be used in the summer with the compressor in the Cooling Mode if you wish. Normally, for most efficient operation, cooling is accomplished with this control in the middle or closed position.

TO EXHAUST INDOOR AIR - Move the lever to the EXHAUST position. This will allow stale air to be expelled to the outside of the dwelling. This is especially handy in the winter when indoor air tends to get stale, or after a social gathering involving smokers, or to remove odors after cooking.

Troubleshooting tips

Won’t cool?

If your air conditioner operates, but won’t cool; check to see if the controls are properly set. Check the filter and clean thoroughly if needed.

Won’t run?

Make sure the power cord is plugged in all the way. Check for a bad fuse or a tripped breaker. This guide shows the proper fuse size on page 3.

This is a warm weather appliance

Your air conditioner is designed to cool in warm weather when the outside temperature is above 60°F (16°C) and below 115°F (46°C), so it won’t cool a room if it is already cool outside. If you want to cool a room in the winter, set the unit to Fan Only and set the Fresh Air/Exhaust control to Fresh Air. This will bring in a supply of outside air.

Condensation is normal

Air conditioners actually pump heat and humidity from your room to the outside air. Humidity becomes water, and your air conditioner will use most of the water to keep the outside coil cool. If there is excessive humidity, there may be excess water that will drip outside. This is normal operation.

Frosting

This usually occurs because of insufficient airflow across the coils, a dirty filter, cool, damp weather, or all of these. Set unit to Fan Only and the frost will disappear. Setting the thermostat a little warmer will probably prevent the frosting from recurring.

Noises

All air conditioners make some noise. Friedrich QuietMasters® operate as quietly as possible. An air conditioner mounted in a wall is quieter than one mounted in a window. If mounted in a window, the window mount kit provided with QuietMaster® models will reduce operating sound levels, when properly installed.

Cleaning your air conditioner

The decorative front and the cabinet can be cleaned with warm water and a mild detergent. The indoor coil can be vacuumed with a dusting attachment if it appears to be dirty. The outdoor coil can be gently sprayed with a hose if you can get to it. If not, you might call your dealer for a more thorough cleaning when needed.

Para obtener el máximo enfriamiento y ahorrar energía

Mantenga limpio el filtro

Asegúrese de que su aire acondicionado esté funcionando siempre lo mejor posible, limpiando periódicamente el filtro. Las instrucciones para quitar y limpiar el filtro se encuentran en la página 12.

Permita que haya buen flujo de aire

Asegúrese de que la entrada y salida de aire de la unidad no estén obstruídas. Su aire acondicionado sale por la parte superior de la unidad y el aire entra por la parte inferior. El flujo de aire es indispensable para obtener un buen funcionamiento. Es igualmente importante que nada obstruya la unidad afuera del edificio.

Ubicación de la unidad

Si su aire acondicionado se puede colocar en una ventana o una pared a la que le de la sombra de un árbol o de otro edificio, la unidad funcionará aún más eficientemente. El uso de cortinas o persianas en el lado soleado de la casa también ayuda a la eficiencia de su unidad de aire acondicionado.

Aislamiento

Un buen aislamiento será lo que más ayuda a mantener el nivel deseado de comodidad. Las puertas deben tener burletes aisladores del clima. Asegúrese de rellenar los vacíos alrededor de las puertas y de las ventanas.
