Sound of Rushing Air

At the front of the unit, you may hear the sound of rushing air being moved by the fan.

Gurgle/Hiss

“Gurgling or hissing” noise may be heard due to refrigerant passing through evaporator during normal operation.

Vibration

Unit may vibrate and make noise because of poor wall or window construction or incorrect installation.

Pinging or Swishing

Droplets of water hitting condenser during normal operation may cause “pinging or swishing” sounds.

Important Safety

Instructions

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.

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.

Power supply cord with 3-pronggrounding plug and current detection device

Read all instructions before using this air conditioner.

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.

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.

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 with 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.

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.
