ENERGY-SAVING

Your Danby appliance is designed to be highly efficient in energy

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 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 cooling comfort while utilizing less electricity.

INTERNAL SAFETY

FEATURE

This unit is equipped with a fail-safe switch mechanism that prevents the unit from condensing water in the event the internal reservoir becomes full or is accidentally displaced. If this situation occurs, the (RED) WATER FULL indicator light will illuminate. This condition will remain steady until the external water tank is emptied.

NOTE: No cooling will occur until the internal tank is emptied and/or re-positioned. It may take several minutes before the compressor resumes normal operation.

CAUTION: During air conditioning and dehumidifier mode, if the compressor cycle is interrupted (water full condition, unplugged, power failure, etc.) and reinstated immediately thereafter (within 3-5 minutes), a compressor protection circuit is automatically activated. The compressor cannot operate during compressor protection mode (this is normal). It may take 3-5 minutes before the protection circuit self-deactivates.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO START THE UNIT (COMPRESSOR) DURING THIS PERIOD.
