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 the evaporator during normal operation.

Important Safety

Instructions

! 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.

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

Read all instructions before using this air conditioner.

! 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 atriple-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 athree-pronggrounding plug and a current leakage detection device for protection against shock & firehazards.

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.

Do not block inside air flow 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 work load.

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

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.

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

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/TIMER” Up () and Down () buttons together for 3 seconds.

Fresh Air Vent Control

Fresh Air Vent Control

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 - Vent Open(See Fig.2)

3.Exchange air from the room and draws fresh air into the room - Vent and Exhaust Open (See Fig.3)

4-WayLouvers

The 4-Wayair directional louvers allow you to direct air flow up or down, left or right throughout the room as needed. Rotate the auger wheel until the desired left/right direction is obtained. Pivot horizontal louvers until the desired up/down direction is obtained.

 

Care and Cleaning

 

Clean your air conditioner occasionally to keep it looking new. Be

 

sure to unplug the unit before cleaning to prevent shock or fire

Air Filter

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.

 

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.

 

Cabinet Cleaning

 

Be sure to unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or fire

 

hazard. The cabinet and front may be dusted with an oil-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 cleaner, 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

 

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.

 

NOTE: To prevent rust or electrical connections from being

 

damaged, store air conditioner in an upright position and in a

 

dry place.
