air is exhausted to the outside through the air exhaust hose. Adjust the fan speed and

temperature to suit your desired comfort level.

Note: The air exhaust hose must be vented through a window when using the cooling mode.

Dehumidifying Mode

The dehumidifying mode removes water from the air without cooling the room. If the room temperature

is below 77ºF, the fan speed will be locked on “low,” above 77ºF, the fan speed is adjustable.

Optimizing Performance

For Maximum Performance and Efficiency:

1.Do not cover the air outlet (exhaust) while in use.

2.Do not place the unit in front of curtains or drapesto ensure they do not obstruct the air intake.

3.Minimize the length of the exhaust hose.

4.Make sure the exhaust hose is as straight as possible.

5.Keep curtains, blinds or drapes closed during the sunniest part of the day.

6.Use the timer to operate the unit before it is needed. For example, set the timer to turn on the unit in cooling mode for 3 or more hours to cool the room before you arrive. You may want to operate the unit all day if you live in a warmer climate.

7.Minimize the heat sources (direct sunlight, computers, servers, people, etc.) in the room.

8.Close all windows and doors.

9.Use the unit in a contained room. For example, a room with four walls and a roof, instead of a partitioned studio, or warehouse.

10.Make sure the unit is on a level surface.

11.Minimize the amount of humidity in the room. For example, adding a dehumidifier.

12.To prolong the compressor's life, please wait at least 3 minutes before turning the unit back on after shutting it off.

13.Inspect and keep the pre-filters clean by cleaning regularly.

14.Inspect and replace the activated carbon filters regularly.

15.Perform routine maintenance.

Maintenance

Cut off the power supply

Turn off the appliance first before disconnecting from the power supply. .

Wipe with a soft and dry cloth

Use lukewarm water

(below 104˚F) to clean the appliance.

Never use volalile substances such as gasoline or polishing powder to clean the appliance.

Never spray water onto the main unit.

It is necessary to clean or replace the air filters periodically.

Clean as follows:

Stop the appliance and remove the activated carbon filter and the pre-filter.

The activated carbon filter attaches to the standard pre-filter. The activated carbon filter removes smoke, odors and other harmful particles, while the pre-filter removes dust.

Clean and reinstall the pre-filter

Dirt can be cleaned off the pre-filter by washing it with a solution of soap in

lukewarm water. After cleaning the pre-filter, allow it to air dry in shaded and cool place, then reinstall. Clean the pre-filter

every two weeks if the air conditioner operates in a dusty environment.

Replace the activated carbon filter

The activated carbon filter cannot be cleaned and needs to be disposed of when cleaning the

pre-filter. EdgeStar sells replacement activated carbon filters. Contact customer service via email at service@edgestar.com or by telephone at 1-866-319-5473 to purchase additional activated carbon filters.

Maintenance and Storage

1.If you are not going to use this unit for a long time, be sure to drain the water from the reservoir by removing the drain cap and the rubber plug.

2.Before storing the unit, run it in fan mode for a few hours to dry any moisture on the coils to prevent mold.

3.Turn the unit off, clean the air filter and reinstall it.

Troubleshooting

Why is my air conditioner not functioning at all?

oThe air conditioner may not be receiving electrical power. Press the test/reset buttons on the LCDI power cord.

oMove the air conditioner to another outlet, and test the outlet with a voltage tester or another appliance that is known to be non-defective. If the outlet is bad, contact an electrician and move the air conditioner to another outlet.

oIf the remote will not work, first, check the batteries. The control panel may be unplugged from the circuit board. Contact customer service to repair.

Why is my air conditioner not cooling at all?

oThe unit should be in a room where the ambient temperature is below 95˚F. If the ambient temperature is above 95˚F, the unit will likely not blow cold air but is not defective. Follow the below steps to increase the efficiency of your unit’s compressor:

o Minimize heat in the room.

o Minimize the size of the area to be cooled (close doors and windows).

o Close curtains or pull down blinds; minimize direct sunlight into the room.

o Remove additional heat sources such as computer equipment (servers), etc.

oRun the unit before it is needed (e.g., run the unit in the morning before the area gets hot, and continue to run the unit all day long in order to maintain a low temperature).

o Use more than one unit or a larger unit to cool the area.

oRemove the exhaust hose and run the unit for 5 minutes. Stick your hand in front of the exhaust and then in front of the internal air louvers. Is the exhaust noticeably hotter than the interior air? If so, the unit is not defective; follow the above steps to maximize efficiency of your unit’s compressor.

oIf your unit has a filter, the filter may be dusty or otherwise blocked. Clean the filter or contact customer service to replace if necessary.

oCheck to make sure the air intake or exhaust ports are not partially obstructed. If they are, remove the obstruction.

My unit turns on, but one of the fans is not turning or makes a loud noise? (Exhaust and evaporator fan)

oIf the fan spins freely while the unit is off, but does not spin when the unit is on, then the probable cause is a loose wire from the fan motor to the circuit board, or a faulty fan motor. Contact customer service to replace faulty wiring or fan motor.

oIf the fan does not spin freely, then the probable cause is a broken fan, or a foreign object has jammed the fan. Contact customer service if fan is broken, or unplug unit and attempt to remove foreign object.

Note that the compressor may take up to 3 minutes to turn on.
Make sure the unit is on “cooling” mode.

Troubleshooting

Why are the control panel lights blinking randomly?

oYour air conditioner may have a minor electrical fault. Move the unit to another outlet or unplug the unit and plug it in again.

oYour air conditioner may be plugged into an outlet that cannot supply the correct voltage to the unit. Move the air conditioner to another outlet, and test the outlet with a voltage tester or another appliance that is known to be non-defective. If the outlet is bad, contact an electrician and move the air conditioner to another outlet.

o If that is not the problem, the unit may have a faulty control panel. Contact customer service.

My unit runs for a little while (generally about 90 seconds) and then suddenly trips its power cord (and/or the circuit breaker).

oYour air conditioner may need to be reset. Move the unit to another outlet or unplug the unit for 1 minute and plug it in again.

oYour air conditioner may be plugged into an outlet that cannot supply the correct voltage to the unit. Move the air conditioner to another outlet, and test the outlet with a voltage tester or another appliance that is known to be non-defective. If the outlet is bad, contact an electrician and move the air conditioner to another outlet.

My air conditioner is too loud?

oYour air conditioner may be positioned on a hard or uneven floor causing your unit to vibrate. Move the unit onto a level, carpeted surface.

oIf the unit is level and a “knocking” noise is audible, the unit may have a faulty compressor. Contact customer service.

Why is my air conditioner leaking?

o Check for damage to the bottom of the unit. If damage is present, contact customer service. o Make sure the unit on a level surface.

oMake sure you are running the unit with the drain plug installed. Make sure the drain cap as well as the rubber drain plug is attached to the unit.

Both fans are blowing, but only room temperature air is coming out of both fans? o

o

oCheck to see if there is any oily residue on the bottom of the unit or inside the unit on the panels, or components. If this is the case, then the compressor has a cracked coil that is leaking oil and the unit must be replaced. Contact customer service to replace.
