Notes about the Exhaust hose

Your portable air conditioner is designed to exhaust condensate water that is collected from the air. This water, in either gaseous or droplet form, will be expelled out the exhaust port of the unit. Please take this into account when deciding how to vent it.

1.The exhaust hose supplied with the portable air conditioner can be extended up to approximately 48 inches; however for maximum efficiency, use the shortest length possible.

2.Try to prevent any kinks or bends in the exhaust hose. Kinks or bends may trap exhaust air which can radiate heat into the room or potentially cause the portable air conditioner to overheat and shut itself off.

3.The exhaust hose supplied with the portable air conditioner has been specifically designed for this air conditioner. Do not lengthen the hose by adding additional hoses or attachments. Do not replace it with any other hose.

Do not lengthen the exhaust hose by adding additional hoses or attachments.

Warning: Longer hoses are not recommended.

The exhaust hose must be installed or removed in accordance with the usage modes:

A:You must install the exhaust hose if the unit is in Cooling Mode.

B:You must remove the exhaust hose if the unit is in Fan Mode or

Dehumidify mode.

Note: the exhaust hose may be compressed or extended according to your installation requirements; however, it is recommended to keep the exhaust hose length at a minimum.

Draining the Unit

The unit will need to be drained if set to dehumidify mode. When the portable air conditioner is in cooling mode, it will remove moisture from the air. The condensed water from the air will be collected in an internal reservoir and will be evaporated and exhausted out of the exhaust hose. However, in very humid conditions, the internal reservoir may fill completely. This causes the air conditioner to turn off to avoid overflowing the internal reservoir. The unit will beep 8 times and the LCD will show a “P1” error code on the Control Panel if the reservoir is full of water. The fan motor will continue to run, but the air conditioner/ dehumidifier will stop running.

Direct drainage

For continuous use you can connect a drain hose to the upper drain port of the portable air conditioner.

1. Remove the rubber drain plug from the upper drain port.

2. Connect a drain hose to the upper drain port. (Some models may have a threaded valve for a garden hose. You may need to purchase an adapter.) The portable air conditioner will now drain through the drain hose. Please note that this unit has no drain pump; all water will drain with gravity only, i.e., only “downhill.”

Manual Drain

You may need to manually drain the unit if your unit stops running and displays a “P1” error.

1.Roll the unit to a location suitable for draining.

2.Remove the lower drain plug and allow the unit to drain completely.

3. Insert the lower drain plug to the lower drain port and restart the unit.

Normal Sounds

Your new portable air conditioner may make sounds that are not familiar to you. Most of the sounds that are made are normal. Hard surfaces like the floor, walls can make the sounds seem louder than they actually are. The following describes the kinds of sounds that might be new to you and what may be making them.

The compressor may make a pulsating or high-pitched sound.

Water running from the evaporator to the water bin may make a splashing sound.

You may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing.

You will hear fan noise from the exhaust and front vents.
