920-198-01

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 it replaced with a grounded receptacle by a certified electrician. The grounded receptacle should meet 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.

Test the power cord

All Friedrich room air conditioners are shipped from the factory with a Leakage Current Detection Interrupter (LCDI) equipped power cord. The LCDI device meets the UL and NEC requirements for cord connected air conditioners.

To test your power supply cord:

1.Plug power supply cord into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

2.Press RESET (See Figure 2).

3.Press TEST (listen for click; Reset button trips and pops out).

4.Press and release RESET (listen for click; Reset button latches and remains in). The power supply cord is ready for operation.

NOTE: LCDI device is not intended to be used as a switch.

Once plugged in the unit will operate normally without the need to reset the LCDI device.

If the device fails to trip when tested or if the power supply cord is damaged it must be replaced with a new supply cord from the manufacturer. We recommend you contact our Technical Assistance Line at (800)541-6645ext. 845. To expedite service, please have your model and serial number available.

WARNING

Electrical Shock Hazard

Make sure your electrical receptacle has the same configuration as your air conditioner’s plug. If different, consult a Licensed Electrician.

Do not use plug adapters.

Do not use an extension cord.

Do not remove ground prong.

Always plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.

Figure 2

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 7.

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.

Provide good air flow

Make sure 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.

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.

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 Step 14 (page 13) of the installation instructions.

Also, if you switch from Cool mode toFan Only, and switch back to COOL mode, there is a three minute delay before the compressor comes back on.

How to operate your Friedrich room air conditioner

(QuietMaster 'K' / Twintemp models)

To start unit

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

Mode control (QuietMaster ‘K’)

The upper dial (Figure 5) allows you to select cooling at four different speeds, as well as Fan Only (Models SL28 and SL36 only have three cooling speeds.).

Off - to turn the unit off.

High Cool - for quick cooling.

Medium Cool - to maintain a desired temperature.

Low Cool - when cooling demand is low.

Sleep Setting - for nighttime use, or when cooling demand is low.

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

The FanOnlysetting can also be used with theExhaustair setting to remove stale air or smoke from the room; or it can be used with theFresh Air setting to bring outside air into the room. This is especially useful in the spring and fall when cooling may not be necessary. TheFresh Air andExhaust 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 (See Figure 9).

Care and Maintenance / Fresh air and exhaust control

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 7). The RA grille will stay open until it is detached or closed (it is easier to completely detach the grille before closing it). To remove the RA grille, grasp it at the bottom and pull towards you.

The ¿lter is held in place by two spring clips (See Figure 7). Push down on the clips, grasp the ¿lter 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 ¿lter. The coil surface can be sharp.

If the RA grille has been removed, pick up the grille by supporting it from both sides near the bottom (See Figure 8, Note 1). Lift return air grille and insert the grille's tabs into the bottom slots of the discharge air plenum (See Figure 8, Note 2). Snap the grille into place by pushing the grille up and onto the unit's latches at the bottom (See Figure 8, Notes 3 and 4).

Fresh air and exhaust control

Your air conditioner has the ability to bring fresh air into the room or exhaust stale air out of the room. The control lever is found on the upper part of the unit (See Figure 9).

TO BRING IN FRESH AIR - Move the lever to theFresh 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 usingFan Only. It can also be used in the summer with the compressor in the Cooling Mode if you wish. Normally, for most ef¿cient operation, cooling is accomplished with this control in the middle or closed position.

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

Installation Instructions

NOTE: This manual includes installation instructions for window mount andthru-the-wallmount methods. TwinTemp® heat/cool units are designed for permanentthru-the-wallinstallation. Mounting the unit in a window will require a window mounting accessory kit, available thr ough your Friedrich dealer.

WARNING

Electrical Shock Hazard

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock.

Read This First! Electrical Requirements

IMPORTANT: Before you begin the actual installation of your air conditioner, check local electrical codes and the information below.

Your air conditioner must be connected to a power supply with the same A.C. voltage and hertz as marked on the data plate located on the chassis. Only alternating current (A.C.), can be used. Direct Current (D.C.) cannot be used. Refer to page 3 for the correct type of receptacle for your model.

CIRCUIT PROTECTION - USE ON SINGLE OUTLET CIRCUIT ONLY. An overloaded circuit will invariably cause malfunction or failure of an air conditioner, therefore, it is necessary that the electrical protection is adequate. Due to momentary high current demand when your air conditioner is started, use a "TIME DELAY" fuse or a HACR type circuit breaker. Consult your dealer or power company if in doubt.

Refer to the electrical data plate located on the air conditioner chassis to determine the correct fuse or circuit breaker amperage for your model (See Figure E on Page 16 for electrical receptacle location).

The power cord has a plug with a grounding prong of approved type and a matching receptacle is required.

WARNING: NEVER CUT OR REMOVE THE GROUNDING PRONG FROM THE PLUG. NEVER USE EXTENSION CORDS TO OPERATE AN AIR CONDITIONER.

The following instructions are for standard chassis model groups distinguished by the ¿rst two letters of the model designations and cabinet sizes listed below.
