Important Safety Instructions

NOTE:

This USE & CARE MANUAL provides specific operating instructions for your model. Use the room air conditioner only as instructed in this USE & CARE MANUAL. These instructions are not meant to cover every possible condition and situation that may occur. Common sense and caution must be practiced when installing, operating, and maintaining any appliance.

NOTE:

The power supply cord with

this air conditioner contains a current detection device designed to reduce the risk of fire.

Please refer to the section ‘Operation of

Current Device’ for details.

In the event that the power supply cord is damaged, it cannot be repaired. It must be replaced with a cord from the product manufacturer.

WARNING

Avoid fire hazard or electric shock. Do not use an extension cord or an adaptor plug. Do not remove any prong from the power cord.

Grounding Prong

Do not, under any

230V circumstances, cut,

WARNING

For Your Safety

Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance. Read product labels for flammability and other warnings.

WARNING

Prevent Accidents

To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using your air conditioner, follow basic precautions, including the following:

Be sure the electrical service is adequate for the model you have chosen. This information can be found on the serial plate, which is located on the side of the cabinet and behind the grille.

If the air conditioner is to be installed in a window, you will probably want to clean both sides of the glass first. If the window is a triple-tracktype with a screen panel included, remove the screen completely before installation.

Be sure the air conditioner has been securely and correctly installed according to the separate installation instructions provided with this manual. Save this manual and the installation instructions for possible future use in removing or reinstalling this unit.

When handling the air conditioner, be careful to avoid cuts from sharp metal fins on front and rear coils.

WARNING

Electrical Information

The complete electrical rating of your new room air conditioner is stated on the serial plate.

Refer to the rating when checking the electrical requirements.

Be sure the air conditioner is properly grounded. To minimize shock and fire hazards, proper grounding is important. The power cord is equipped with a three-pronggrounding plug for protection against shock hazards.

Your air conditioner must be used in a properly grounded wall receptacle. If the wall receptacle you intend to use is not adequately grounded or protected by a time delay fuse or circuit breaker, have a qualified electrician install the proper receptacle.

Do not run air conditioner without outside protective cover in place. This could result in mechanical damage within the air conditioner.

Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.

READ THIS SECTION BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO OPERATE AIR CONDITIONER.

Unit must be upright for one hour prior to operating.

Plug in & press RESET

The power supply cord contains a current device that senses damage to the power cord. To test your power supply cord do the following:

Plug in the Air Conditioner.

The power supply cord will have TWO buttons on the plug head. Press the TEST button. You will notice a click as the RESET button pops out.

Press the RESET button. Again you will notice a click as the button engages.

The power supply cord is now supplying electricity to the unit. (On some products this is also indicated by a light on the plug head).

NOTE:

Do not use this device to turn the unit on or off.

Always make sure the RESET button is pushed in for correct operation.

The power supply cord must be replaced if it fails to reset when either the TEST button is pushed, or it cannot be reset. A new one can be obtained from the product manufacturer.

If power supply cord is damaged, it CANNOT be repaired. It MUST be replaced by one obtained from the product manufacturer.

ADDITIONAL THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Now that you have mastered the operating procedure, here are more features in your control that you should become familiar with.

The "Cool" circuit has an automatic 3 minute time delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping. The fan will continue to run during this time.

There is a2-Seconddelay for the compressor shutting down when selecting FAN ONLY. This is to cover the possibility of having to roll through to select another mode.

The control will maintain the set temperature within 2 degrees Fahrenheit, between 60F and 90F degrees.

After a power outage, the unit will memorize the last setting and return the unit to the same setting once power is restored.

Fresh Air Vent Control (on some models)

The Fresh Air Vent allows the air conditioner to:

1.Recirculate inside air - Vent Closed (see Fig. 1)

2.Draw fresh air into the room - Fresh Air (see Fig. 2)

3.Exchange air from the room - Vent Open (see Fig. 3)

Figure 1 (VENT CLOSED)

Figure 2 (FRESH AIR)

AUGER WHEELS

(8-WAY)

Figure 3 (VENT OPEN)

Air Directional Louvers

Air directional louvers control air flow direction. Your air conditioner has the louver type described below.

Auger Type

The louvers will allow you to direct the air flow Up or Down and Left or Right throughout the room as needed. Rotate the Auger Wheels until the desired Left/Right direction is obtained. Pivot horizontal louvers until the desired Up/Down direction is obtained.

Care and Cleaning & Energy Saving Ideas

Care and Cleaning

Tab

Air Filter

Clean your air conditioner occasionally to keep it looking new. Be sure to unplug the unit before cleaning to prevent shock or fire hazards.

Air Filter Cleaning

The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is necessary. Trapped particles in the filter can build up and cause an accumulation of frost on the cooling coils.

Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position(where applicable).

Open the front panel.

Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.

Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is thoroughly dry before replacing

Or instead of washing, you may vacuum the filter clean.

NOTE: When replacing the air filter after cleaning, make sure the tabs on the air filter are on the upper part of filter, and placed outward as shown in the drawing on the left side.

Cabinet Cleaning

Be sure to unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or fire hazard. The cabinet and front may be dusted with anoil-freecloth or washed with a cloth dampened in a solution of warm water and mild liquid dishwashing detergent. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry.

Never use harsh cleaners, wax or polish on the cabinet front.

Be sure to wring excess water from the cloth before wiping around the controls. Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the air conditioner.Plug in air conditioner.

Winter Storage

Energy Saving Ideas

If you plan to store the air conditioner during the winter, remove it carefully from the window according to the installation instructions. Cover it with plastic or return it to the original carton.

Do not block air flow inside with blinds, curtains or furniture; or outside with shrubs, enclosures, or other buildings.

The capacity of the room air conditioner must fit the room size for efficient and satisfactory operation.

Install the room air conditioner on the shady side of your home. A window that faces north is best because it is shaded most of the day.

Close the fireplace damper, floor and wall registers so cool air does not escape up the chimney and into the duct work.

Keep blinds and drapes in other windows closed during the sunniest part of the day. Clean the air filter as recommended in the section “Care and Cleaning”.

Proper insulation and weather stripping in your home will help keep warm air out and cool air in.

External house shading with trees, plants or awnings will help reduce the air conditioner’s work load.

Operate heat producing appliances such as ranges, washers, dryers and dishwashers during the coolest part of the day.
