The exhaust duct is designed especially for this model. Don’t replace it with another model’s duct or lengthen it.

NOTICE:

The maximum length of the exhaust pipe is 59 inches (150 cm).

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Cool mode

When the A/C enters Cool mode automatically, or Cool mode is selected after the unit is turned on, the Cool indicator symbol lights up.

Press the Up or Down buttons to adjust the temperature setting in the range 17°C-30°C (62°F- 86°F).

Press the Speed button to choose High/ Medium/ Low fan speed.

Fan mode

Press the mode button on the control panel or the Fan button on the remote control to select Fan mode. The Fan indicator symbol lights up to show that the unit is operating in Fan mode.

Press the Speed button to choose High/ Medium/ Low fan speed.

The temperature cannot be set in Fan mode.

Dry mode (dehumidifying function)

When you wish to run the unit in Dry (dehumidifying) mode, perform the following change to the drain at the back of the unit. Turn the unit off and unplug it. Remove the exhaust pipe assembly. Unscrew the drain cover, pull out the water plug, and attach a drain hose. The drain hose can be a common garden hose which can be screwed directly onto the threads of the drain. Ensure that you place the other end of the hose into an appropriate drain (e.g. a floor drain), to prevent water from leaking onto the floor. Restart your unit.

Press the mode button on the control panel or the remote control to select Dry mode. The Dry indicator symbol lights up on the LCD display window to show that the unit is operating in Dry mode.

Upon entering Dry mode, if the room temperature is 15°C (59°F) or greater, the compressor will start to operate. If the room temperature is 13°C (55°F) or less, the compressor will shut off. When the temperature rises again to 15°C, the compressor will restart (there will be a 3 minute delay in order to protect the compressor).

In Dry (dehumidifying) mode, the fan will default to run at Low speed, and the speed cannot be adjusted.

The temperature cannot be set in Dry mode.

NOTE: When choosing Dry (dehumidifying) mode, please remove the exhaust pipe assembly. Otherwise, it will affect dehumidifying performance and the display window will indicate “FL”.

Auto mode

Press the Mode button on the control panel or on the remote control to select Auto mode. The Auto indicator symbol lights up to show that the unit is operating in Auto mode.

After choosing auto mode, the operation setting is determined by the ambient temperature. When ambient temperature is higher than 25°C (77°F), the operation setting is the same as that of Cool mode; when it is lower than 25°C (77°F), the operation setting is the same as that of Fan mode.

Max Cool mode (optional)

When in Cool mode, press the TIMER and UP buttons at the same time to enter Max Cool mode.

In Max Cool mode, the A/C will cool regardless of temperature restrictions.

In Max Cool mode, the fan will default to run at High speed, and the speed cannot be adjusted.

To cancel Max Cool mode press the TIMER and UP buttons again.

Sleep mode (optional)

When in Cool mode, press the TIMER and DOWN buttons at the same time to enter Sleep mode.

In Sleep mode, the set temperature will increase by 1° (C or F, depending on the current setting of the unit) every 2 hours, for the first 4 hours of operation. After this, the set temperature will not change further.

In Sleep mode, the fan will default to run at low speed, and the speed cannot be adjusted.

NOTE:

To switch between degrees Celsius and Fahrenheit, press the Up and Down buttons on the control panel at the same time.

The “swing louvers” option is only available from the remote control.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Timer mode

When the unit is plugged in, but the Power button has not been pressed, the unit is in Standby mode. To set an automatic time after which the unit should turn on, press the Timer button while the unit is in Standby mode. While the display is flashing, use the Up/ Down buttons to select a time between 0 and 24 hours. The unit will come on AFTER the number of hours that you have selected have passed e.g. if you select 6 H, the unit will come on after 6 hours. The Timer symbol on the display will light up to indicate that the Timer has been set.

To set the duration of the run time using the Timer, the unit must be running (not in stand-by mode). When the unit is running, press the Timer button. While the display is flashing, use the Up/ Down buttons to select a time between 0 and 24 hours. The unit will run for the number of hours that you selected e.g. if you selected 6 H, the unit will run for a period of 6 hours. The Timer symbol will light up to indicate that the Timer has been set.

To turn the Timer function off, press the Timer button. The display will start to flash. While it is flashing, press the Down button to bring the time down to 0. When the display stops flashing, the Timer symbol should disappear from the display, to indicate that the Timer is off.

DRAINAGE METHOD

This product is equipped with an automatic water evaporation system. The condensed water is recycled to cool the condenser, which improves cooling efficiency and saves energy.

If the internal container is full of water, the display screen will display “FL”, and the compressor will stop working automatically. Turn the unit off, unplug it, unscrew the drain cover, pull out the water plug to drain out the water, and the compressor will return to normal after being restarted. Ensure that you position the unit over a floor drain to avoid water spills on your floor.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

NOTICE

In order to avoid electric shock, please turn off the A/C and unplug the plug before maintenance or repair.

CLEANING

Unplug before cleaning.

Wipe with soft semi-dry cloth. DO NOT use chemical agents, such as benzene, alcohol, gasoline, etc. Otherwise the surface of the A/C and, potentially, the whole A/C will be damaged.

Prevent water from spilling into the A/C.

FILTER

Wash the filter once every two weeks. It may be necessary to wash it more often if air quality is poor. If it is blocked by dust, the efficiency of the A/C will be reduced.

Pull out the air inlet grille and the filter as shown in the picture below.

Wash the air inlet grille and the filter in warm water (about 40°C / 104°F) with neutral detergent added. Allow to dry in a shaded area after cleaning.

SEASONAL CLEANING

If the A/C will not be used for a long time:

Drain the internal container as outlined in the Drainage Method section.

Run the A/C under fan mode for 2 hours until the inside is dry.

Turn the A/C off and unplug it.

Wash and dry the air inlet grille and the filter and reassemble them.

Remove the exhaust pipe.

Cover the A/C and exhaust pipe with a plastic bag and store them in a dry place.

DISPOSAL

Check for local regulatory compliance regarding the approved and safe disposal of this appliance.
