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 wall plug provided.

This insures proper grounding. If you have a two-prongreceptacle you will need to replace it with athree-pronggrounded receptacle 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 threeprong plug furnished with the air conditioner.

For the best cooling performance & 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 4.

Provide good airflow

Make sure that the airflow to and from the unit is clear. Your air conditioner puts the conditioned air out at the top of the unit, and takes in unconditioned 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.

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.

Proper installation of seal gasket

Make sure the seal gasket has been installed properly to minimize noise and improve efficiency. If the seal gasket has not been installed, please refer to your installation instruction manual.

Unit Placement

If your air conditioner can be placed in a window or a 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.

How to operate your Friedrich room air conditioner

Figure 2

Your Friedrich Casement model is a high efficiency unit designed to be installed in a casement window that does not permit the use of a standard window model. It is simple to operate and gives you optimum performance despite its small size.

To start unit

If your air conditioner is installed and plugged into a proper receptacle, it is ready to go.

Temperature control

The right hand knob is the thermostat, turn it clockwise for cooler, counterclockwise for warmer.

Function control

There are four positions:

Turn to OFF to turn everything off.

Hl COOL - The fan runs continuously at high speed to cool the room quickly; the compressor goes on and off to maintain the temperature selected.

LO COOL - The fan runs continuously at low speed for gentle circulation of cooled air; the compressor goes on and off to maintain the temperature selected.

FAN ONLY - The fan runs alone without the compressor and circulates air without cooling.

To remove filter

Remove the slotted screws from each side of the plastic front panel and remove the panel (Figure 3). The filter can now be removed for cleaning. Use caution when removing the filter. The internal metal components are sharp. Clean with warm water and a mild detergent, rinse, shake out, and allow to dry.

Replace the filter in the unit, and replace the front. This should be done on a regular basis during the cooling season.

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. Check to see if the vent door is closed. Check to see if the chassis seal gasket is installed (refer to installation instructions).

Won’t run?

Make sure the power cord is plugged in all the way. Check for a bad fuse, tripped breaker or tripped LCDI Device. Refer to page 3 for LCDI reset instructions and to confirm proper fuse size.

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. It is important to ensure that the chassis seal gasket is properly installed (refer to installation instructions).

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. The air filter should be inspected weekly and cleaned if needed by vacuuming with a dust attachment or by cleaning in the sink using warm water and a mild dishwashing detergent. Dry thoroughly before reinstalling the filter.

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. El aire acondicionado sale por la parte superior de la unidad y el aire sin acondicionar 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.

Instalación correcta de la junta de sello

Compruebe la debida instalación de la junta de sello para reducir el ruido y mejorar la eficacia. Si la junta de sello no se ha instalado, refiérase a su manual de instrucciones de instalación.

Cómo hacer funcionar su unidad de aire acondicionado Friedrich

Figura 2

Su unidad Friedrich Casement es una unidad de alta eficiencia que se ha diseñado para instalarse en el marco de una ventana que no permite la utilización de modelos regulares para ventanas. Es fácil ponerla a funcionar y le da un rendimiento óptimo a pesar de su tamaño pequeño.

Para hacer funcionar su unidad de aire acondicionado

Si su unidad de aire acondicionado se ha instalado y conectado en un receptáculo apropiado, está lista para comenzar a funcionar.

Control de temperatura

El botón de control a la derecha es el termostato. Gírelo de izquierda a derecha para más frío y de derecha a izquierda para menos frío.

Control de funciones

Tiene cuatro posiciones:

Colóquelo en OFF (apagada) para apagar la unidad.

Colóquelo en HI COOL (enfriamiento máximo) - El ventilador funciona continualmente a una velocidad alta para enfriar el cuarto rápidamente, el compresor se enciende y se apaga para mantener la temperatura que se haya escogido.

Colóquelo en LO COOL (enfriamiento mínimo) - El ventilador gira continuamente a una velocidad lenta para una circulación suave de aire enfriado; el compresor se enciende y apaga para mantener la temperatura que se haya escogido.

Colóquelo en FAN ONLY (ventilador únicamente) - El ventilador funciona solo sin el compresor y circula el aire sin enfriar.

Para remover el filtro

Quite los tornillos con rosca de cada lado de la tapa plástica delantera y saque el pánel (Figura 3). El filtro se puede sacar ahora para limpiarlo. Tenga precaución mientras sacando el filtro. Los componentes internos tienen abordes afilados. Lávelo con agua tibia y con jabón de espuma, juáguelo, séquelo y deje que se seque completamente antes de volverlo a colocar.

Vuelva a colocar el filtro de la unidad y coloque nuevamente la parte delantera. Esto se debe hacer períodicamente durante la estación de enfriamiento.
