IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

 

 

 

 

POWER

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

SUPPLY CORD

damage to 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

SAVING TIPS

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 filter is very efficient in removing airborne particles. Keep the air filter clean. Normally, filters should be cleaned every 2 weeks. More frequent cleaning my be necessary depending on indoor air quality.

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.

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.

is recommended that you have someone assist you during

 

the installation of this unit.

LOCATION

A)This room air conditioner is designed to fit easily into a single or double hung window. However, since window designs vary, it may be necessary to make some modifications for safe, proper installation.

B)Make sure window and frame are structurally sound and free from dry and rotted wood.

C)For maximum efficiency, install the air conditioner on a side of the house or building which favours more shade than sunlight. If the unit is in direct sunlight, it is advisable to provide an awning over the unit.

D)Provide sufficient clearance around the cabinet to allow for ample air circulation through the unit (See Fig. 2). The rear of the unit should be outdoors and not in a garage nor inside a building. Keep unit as far away as possible from obstacles/obstructions and at least 30” above the floor or ground. Curtains and other objects within a room should be prevented from blocking the air flow.

E)Be certain the proper electrical outlet is within reach of the installation. Use only a single outlet circuit rated at 15 amps. All wiring should be in accordance with local and national electrical codes.

F) DO NOT install unit where leakage of combustible gas is suspected. Your air conditioner may fail to operate in air containing oils (including machine oils), sulfide gas, near hot springs, etc.
