Thru-The-Wallinstallation

NOTE: Consult local building codes prior to installation, or a qualified carpenter.

Select Wall Location

This air conditioner has a slide-outchassis, so that it can be installed through an outside wall as specified below:

Heavy Duty(FAS) Median (FAM) Max wall thickness 10" 8" IMPORTANT: Side louvers must never be blocked. NOTE: All parts needed for Thru-The-WallInstallation are provided,except a wood frame, shims, and 10 wood screws(#10-1"long minimum). Select a wall surface that:

1, does not support major structural loads such as the frame construction at ends of windows, and under

truss-bearingpoints, etc.

2. does not have plumbing or wiring inside.

3, is near existing electrical outlets, or where another outlet can be installed,

4.faces, and is not blocked to the area to be cooled.

5.allows unblocked airflow from rear sides and end (outside) of installed air conditioner.

Prepare Wall

1.Prepare wall in frame construction (including brick and stucco veneer). Working from inside the room, find wall stud nearest the center of area where air conditioner will be installed (by sounding wall, or by magnetically finding nails).

2.Cut or knock out a hole on each side of center stud.

3.Measure between inside edges of every other stud as shown in FIG. 1.

FIG. 1

3-3/8"MIN

(8.8 cm)

Carefully measure and cut an opening with the following dimensions depending on your model. See FIGS, land 2.

WIDTH "X" = inside model width plus twice the thickness of framing material used.

HEIGHT "Y" = inside model height plus twice the thickness of framing material used.

Heavy Duty (FAS) Median (FAM) inside Frame Height:18-_8"(47.9cm)18" (45.7cm) Inside Frame Width: 2@4" (67.9cm) 231J8"(60.6cm)

4. Build a wooden frame with the INSIDE dimensions of your model listed above. Measure twice remember...) Frame depth should be the same as wall thickness. Fill in the space from the opening to the studs with wood spacers, as shown.

5, Nail framd to spacers to spacers with front flush with dry wall.

'-NAIL SPACERS TO STUDS

NOTE: If wall thickness is 8-1/2"or more, add aluminum

flashing over bottom of frame opening to assure no water

Refer to Step 4 d Window Mounting for assembly of support brackets.A wooden strip nailed to the outside wall should be used in conjunction with sill support angle brackets.

IPrepare and Install

Cabinet

1.Slide chassis from cabinet. Refer back to Step 1 of Window Mounting.

2.Place cabinet into opening with bottom rail resting

firmly on bottom board d wooden frame.

3.Position cabinet to achieve proper slope for water removal. (See FIG.1 below.)

5.Screw or nail cabinet wooden frame using shims if frame is oversized, to eliminate distortion. Remember

to maintain proper slope as described in Step 3.

4.Secure bottom rail to wood frame with two large wood screws 1"(2.5 cm)long using the two holes in the bottom of the channel resting on frame.(See FIG.2 following)

6.Install chassis into cabinet by following all steps in Step 8 of Window Mounting.(continued)

OPTIONAL: Caulking and installation of trim on interior

wall may be done. You can buy wood from your local lumber

or hardware supply. On the outside, caulk openings around top and sides of cabinet, and all sides of wood sleeve to the opening.

NOTE: See Step 7, Item 3 of Window Mounting Instructions for bottom rail seal location.

Masonry Construction

1.Cut or build a wall opening in the masonry wall similar to the frame construction(refer to Step 2 d Thru-the-WallInstallation for a wall thickness greater than8-1/2").

2.Secure cabinet in place using masonry nails, or the right masonry anchor screws.(Another way to do this is to build

an in -betweenframe of2x4 'sas shown in the Step 2 Prepare Wallillustrations-butmake it double framed on either side,

and install between masonry wall opening and cabinet. Frame must be securely anchored to masonry wal! opening)

This way gives very good louver clearance on either side of cabinet.

3.Install a linted to support masonry wal! above cabinet. Existing holes in cabinet can be used and/or additions holes can be drilled to fasten cabinet at various positions.Be sure

that side louver clearance is in accordance with Step 1above.

4.Install exterior cabient suppport brackets as shown in Step 2 d Thru-the-WallInstallation.Caulk or flash if

neede, to provide a wether-tightseal around top and sides

of cabinet.

5.To complete installation, apply wood trim molding around room side projection d cabinet.
