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 effective August 2004.

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.

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 6.

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 path 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 installation instructions on page 8.

How to operate your Friedrich room air conditioner (XQ models)

To start unit

If your air conditioner is installed and plugged into a proper receptacle, it is ready to go. The first time the unit is started, the compressor will delay for three minutes. See Automatic Component Protection on the following page.

1Touch the Power button once. The unit will automatically be inCool mode with the temperature set at 75°F (24°C) and the fan speed at F1, the sleep setting.

To set mode of operation

When you first turn the unit on, it will be in the Cool mode (light on), with constant fan.

2Touch the Mode button once to activate theMoneySaver® (light on).

MoneySaver® is a feature that cycles the fan with the compressor so that the fan does not run all the time. This saves energy and improves dehumidification. Or you may prefer constant fan for more air movement (to return to constant fan, touch theMode button two more times).

In order to run the fan by itself, do the following:

3Continuing from MoneySaver® mode (light on), touch theMode button once to activate theFAN ONLY feature (light on).

The FAN ONLY setting will circulate air in the room without the compressor coming on.

To adjust temperature

4Use the Mode button to select either theCOOL orMoneySaver® function

5COOLER – Touch thebutton to lower the room air temperature.

6WARMER – Touch thebutton to raise the room air temperature.

7Press both the andbuttons at the same time to switch the temperature readout from Fahrenheit (°F) to Celsius (°C).

Repeat step 7 to switch from °C back to °F.

To adjust fan speed

8Touch the Fan Speed button to see the current setting. Touch it again to change speed. F1 is the lowest setting (SLEEP SETTING / LOW), F2 isMEDIUM, and F3 isHIGH.

To activate Smart Fan

9There is a fourth option, SF, when selecting the fan speed. This is the SMART FAN function. SMART FAN DOES NOT OPERATE IN CONJUCTION WITH THE FAN ONLY MODE.

Smart Fan will adjust the fan speed automatically to maintain the desired comfort level. For example, if the outside doors in your home are opened for an extended period of time, or more people enter a room, Smart Fan may adjust to a higher fan speed to compensate for the increased heat load. This keeps you from having to adjust the fan speed on your own.

Installation instructions

NOTE: This section 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 through your Friedrich dealer.

READ THIS FIRST! Electrical Requirements

IMPORTANT: Before you begin the actual installation of the air conditioner, be sure your electrical requirements are as described below. Consult an electrical professional as necessary to insure home wiring is per local electrical codes.

CIRCUIT PROTECTION - An overloaded circuit will invariably cause malfunction or failure of an air conditioner, therefore, it is necessary that the electrical protection is adequate. All portable chassis models require a 15 amp fuse or circuit breaker forover-amperageprotection. 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.

Your air conditioner must be connected to a power supply with the same A.C. voltage and hertz as marked on the unit nameplate. Only alternating current (A.C.), no direct current (D.C.), can be used.

The power cord has a plug with a grounding prong of approved type and a matching plug receptacle with ground is required. Refer to page 3 for the correct type of plug receptacle for your model.

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

Troubleshooting tips

Power failure

If you have a power failure, the unit's auto-restartfeature will resume operation in the selected mode prior to the power failure.

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 chassis seal gasket is installed (refer to Installation Instructions, Step 8, page 8).

Won't run?

Make sure the power cord is plugged in completely. 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.

For X-Starmodels only:

You can reset the circuit board by pressing the “MODE” button and the “TEMPERATURE DOWN” button at the same time. The LEDs (small red lights) for Hour, Start and Stop will begin blinking. Once this occurs, turn the unit off by pressing the On/Off button once and then unplug the unit. Finally, plug the unit back in and turn it on by pressing the On/Off button once. All settings revert back to the factory default settings.

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), so it won't cool a room if it is already cool outside. Also, it will not provide adequate heating when the outdoor ambient temperature falls below 37°F (3°C).

Condensation is normal

Air conditioners actually pump the 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. We build them to operate as quietly as possible. An air conditioner mounted in a wall is quieter than one mounted in a window. It is important to ensure that the chassis seal gasket is properly installed (refer to Installation Instructions, Step 8, page 8).

Cleaning your air conditioner

The decorative front and the cabinet can be cleaned with warm water and a mild liquid 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 the filter thoroughly before reinstalling. Use caution– the coil surface can be sharp.

Heat pumps operate differently

If your unit is a "Y", or heat pump model, there are some things that you will want to be aware of.

Some functions of a heat pump differ from your unit when it is used for cooling:

1.It is normal for ice to form on the outdoor coil of the heat pump. Moisture in the outside air, passing over the coil when very cold, will form ice.

2.If the outdoor temperature drops below 37°F (-3°C),your heat pump will automatically turn on the electric resistance heat. When the temperature rises to 40°F (4°C) , the compressor will resume the heat pump operation. If your unit is a 115 volt model (YQ07), it is designed for use in warmer climates and has no electrical heat feature, and will not provide adequate heat below 37°F(3°C).

Available accessories

Window installation kits - heat pump models

Friedrich YQ Heat Pump models are normally installed thru-the-walland are packaged and sold without the expandable curtain assemblies. The WIKQ Curtain Assembly Kit may be purchased as an accessory for window installations. This accessory can be ordered from your Friedrich Dealer. When ordering a kit, state model and serial number of your unit.
