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.

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.

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 personswhen using your airconditioner, 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.

Care and Cleaning

Clean your air conditioner occasionally to keep it looking new. Be sure tounplug theunit before cleaning toprevent shock or firehazards.

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.

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-fleecloth 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

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 a dry place.

Do not block air flowinside 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.
