Important Safety Information

READ AND FOLLOW ALL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

FOR YOUR SAFETY: Read these instructions carefully before operating the unit.

ENERGY SAVING TIPS

Your Danby appliance is designed to be highly efficient in energy savings. Follow 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. (usually cleaned every 2 weeks depending on indoor air quality).

3)Use drapes, curtains or shades to keep direct sunlight from penetrating and heating the 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.

5)When outdoor temperatures are cool enough, use HIGH or LOW FAN only. This circulates indoor air, providing some cooling comfort, and utilizes less electricity than when operating on a cooling setting.

Installation Instructions

ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD

Operating Instructions

AIR CONDITIONER USE

Operating your air conditioner properly helps you to obtain the best possible results.

This section explains proper air conditioner operation.

IMPORTANT

DIGITAL CONTROLS

If you turn off the air conditioner, wait at least 3 minutes before turning it back on. This prevents the air conditioner from blowing a fuse or tripping a circuit breaker.

Do not try to operate your air conditioner in the cooling mode when outside temperature is below 65°F (18°C). The inside evaporator coil will freeze up, and the air conditioner will operate properly.

NOTE: In the event of a power failure, your air conditioner will operate at the previous settings when the power is restored.

Lights next to the touch pads on the air conditioner control panel indicate the selected settings.

POWER OUTAGE RECOVERY FEATURE

To ensure proper operation, aim the remote control at the signal receiver on the air conditioner.

The remote control signal has a range of up to 20 feet.

Make sure nothing is between the air conditioner and the remote control that could block the signal.

Make sure batteries are fresh and installed correctly as indicated on the remote control.

Use the Cool mode at Low, Med, High or Auto Fan Speed for cooling. Use the Temperature Increase / Decrease pads to set the desired temperature between 64°F and 86°F in 1°F increments.

An electronic thermostat is used to maintain the room temperature. The compressor will cycle on and off to keep the room at the set level of comfort. Set the thermostat at a lower number and the indoor air will become cooler. Set the thermostat at a higher number and the indoor air will become warmer.

NOTE: If the air conditioner is off and is then turned on while set to a Cool setting or if turned from a fan setting to a Cool setting, it may take approximately 3 minutes for the compressor to start and cooling to begin.

Cooling Descriptions

For Normal Cooling — Select the Cool mode and High or Med fan with a middle set temperature. For Maximum Cooling — Select the Cool mode and High fan with a lower set temperature. For Quieter & Nighttime Cooling — Select the Cool mode and Low fan with a middle set temperature.

The fan will cycle on and off with the compressor. This results in wider variations of room temperature and humidity. Normally used when the room is unoccupied.

NOTE: The fan may continue to run for a short time after the compressor cycles off.

Use the Fan Only Mode at Low, Med or High fan speed to provide air circulation and filtering without cooling. Since fan only settings do not provide cooling, a Set temperature cannot be entered. The room temperature will appear in the display.

NOTE: Auto Fan Speed cannot be used when in the Fan Only Mode.

Set to Auto fan speed for the fan speed to automatically set to the speed needed to provide optimum comfort settings with the set temperature.

If the room needs more cooling, the fan speed will automatically increase. If the room needs less cooling, the fan speed will automatically decrease.

NOTE: Auto Fan Speed cannot be used when in the Fan Only Mode.

In the case of a power outage or interruption, the unit will automatically restart in the settings last used after the power is restored. If the Delay 1–24hr feature was set, it will countdown according to the memorized time. You may need to set a new time if desired.

Care and Maintenance

Your new air conditioner is designed to give you many years of dependable service. This section tells you how to clean and care for your air conditioner properly.

CLEAING THE AIR FILTER

The air filter is removable for easy cleaning. A clean filter helps remove dust, lint, and other particles from the air and is important for best cooling and operating efficiency. Check the filter every 2 weeks to see whether it needs cleaning.

1. Turn off air conditioner.

2.Remove air filter by pulling down on the indents in the top or sides of filter door and sliding air filter up and out. Filter door is not removable.

IMPORTANT

DO NOT forget to install the air filter. If the air conditioner is left to operate without the air filter, dust is not removed from the room air and may result in machine failure.

When the air inlet grill and cabinet are dirty, wipe with lukewarm water (below 40°C). Use of a mild detergent is recommended.

3.Use a vacuum cleaner to clean air filter. If air filter is very dirty, wash it in warm water with a mild detergent. Do not wash air filter in the dishwasher or use any chemical cleaners. Air dry filter completely before replacing to ensure maximum efficiency.

4.Replace air filter by sliding filter down into filter door and closing filter door.

1.Unplug air conditioner or disconnect power.

2.Clean front panel with a soft, damp cloth.

3.Air dry front panel completely.

4. Plug in air conditioner or reconnect power.

Check once or twice a year for paint damage. This is very important, especially in areas near oceans or where rust is a problem. If needed, touch up with a good grade enamel paint.

NOTE: To reduce paint damage during the winter, install a heavyduty cover over air conditioner cabinet. For information on ordering a heavy-duty cover, see “Accessories.”

ANNUAL MAINTENANCE

Your air conditioner needs annual maintenance to help ensure steady, top performance throughout the year. Call your local authorized dealer to schedule an annual checkup. The expense of an annual inspection is your responsibility.
