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 type wall receptacle

Do not, under any circumstances, cut, remove, or bypass the grounding prong.

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.

If the air conditioner is to be installed in a window, you will probably want to clean both sides of the glass first.

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

WARNING

Electrical Information

The complete electrical rating of your new protable 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.

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.

The control will maintain the set temperature within 2 °F, between 62 °F and 86 °F (17 °C and 30 °C).

The control is capable of displaying temperature in degrees Fahrenheit or degrees Celsius. To convert from one to the other and back, press and hold the "TEMP" Up () and Down () buttons together for 3 seconds.

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

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

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

This unit has three filters, they are filter A, B and C. Grasp the upper panel tab and take off the filter A which behind the grill of the back panel (Fig.25). Remove the lower filter B and C by loosening the screws. Take down the air inlet grille, then remove the air filter as shown in Fig.26 27.

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.

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.
