LEFT + RIGHT FILLER PANEL ASSEMBLY

NOTE: Top Rail and Side Panels at each side are offset to provide the proper pitch to the rear of (5/16”). This is necessary for proper condensed water utilization and drainage. If you are not using the Side Panels for any reason, this pitch to the rear must be maintained!

Place unit on floor, a bench or a table. There is a Left and Right side Filler Panels - be sure to use the proper panel for each side. When installed, the flange for securing the panel in place to the window sill will be facing into the room.

A.Hold the side Panel in one hand and gently pull back the center to free the open end. See FIG. 1.

B.Slide the free end “I” section of the panel directly into the cabinet as shown in FIG. 2. Slide the panel down. Be sure to leave enough space to slip the top and bottom of the frame into the rails on the cabinet.

C.Once the panel has been installed on the side of the cabinet, make sure it sits securely inside the frame channel by

making slight adjustments. Slide the top and bottom ends of the frame into the top and bottom rails of the cabinet. See FIG. 3.

D. Slide the panel all the way in and repeat on the other side.

Your air conditioner is designed to install in standard double hung windows with opening widths of 23 to 36 inches (584 mm to 914 mm) (FIG. 4A , FIG. 4B).

Lower sash must open sufficiently to allow a clear vertical opening of 14 inches (356 mm ). Side louvers and the rear of the air conditioner must have clear air space to allow enough airflow through the condenser, for heat removal. The rear of the unit must be outdoors, not inside a building or garage.
