IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

 

 

 

 

 

 

POWER

The power cord supplied with this air conditioner contains a device that senses damage to

SUPPLY CORD

the power cord. To test if your power cord is working properly, you must do the following:

 

 

1)Connect the power supply cord to an electrical outlet.

2)The power supply cord has two buttons located on the head of the plug. One button is marked “TEST”, and the other is marked “RESET”. Press the “TEST” button; you will hear a click as the “RESET” button pops out.

3)Press the “RESET” button; you will hear a click as the button engages.

4)The power supply cord is now energized and supplying electricity to the air conditioner (on some products this is also indicated by a light on the plug head).

NOTE: The power cord supplied with this air conditioner contains a current leakage detection device designed to reduce the risk of fire. In the event the power supply cord is damaged, it cannot be repaired and must be replaced with a new cord from the product manufacturer.

Under no circumstances should this device be used to turn the unit on or off.

The “RESET” button must always be pushed in (engaged) for correct operation.

The power supply cord must be replaced if it fails to reset when the “TEST” button is pushed in.

ENERGY-

Your Danby appliance is designed to be highly efficient in energy savings. Follow

SAVING TIPS

these recommendations for greater efficiency.

 

 

1)Select a thermostat setting that suits your comfort needs and leave at that chosen setting.

2)The air filter is very efficient in removing airborne particles. Keep the air filter clean at all times.

3)Use drapes, curtains or shades to keep direct sunlight from penetrating and heating room, but do not allow drapes or curtains to obstruct the air flow around the unit.

4)Start your air conditioner before the outdoor air becomes hot and uncomfortable, to avoid an initial period of discomfort while the unit is cooling off the room. Use of the automatic start/stop programmable TIMER feature can be a major asset in this regard if utilized to the fullest extent.

5)When outdoor temperatures are cool enough, turn the air conditioner off and use the FAN MODE on HIGH, MED, or LOW. This circulates indoor air, providing some cooking comfort while utilizing less electricity.
