Preparations for installing the window kit

NOTE: Exhaust Covers may be attached to the Grated Adapters. You may need to twist and pull apart to separate them.

Window Kit Installation Instructions

You must vent your portable air conditioner when running in it cooling mode. Your unit includes a window exhaust kit that can be used to vent the unit out a window.

Before you begin, make sure you have all the parts necessary for installation.

Window Kit Parts List:

4 Screws

1 Grated Adapter

1 Exhaust Cover

1 Exhaust Hose

1 Window Kit Plate with Hole

1 Window Kit Plate

2 Duct Connectors

NOTE: You may need to contact your electrician if your room’s circuit is not able to power your unit.

If you have multiple windows, choose one that is near an electrical outlet that will be able to provide sufficient power to your unit. See the power requirements listed on the product label printed on the side, or on the back of your portable air conditioner.

Your window kit can be installed on a horizontal or vertical sliding window as shown in the following pictures:

Follow the instructions on the next pages to install the window kit.

Installing the grated adapter

1. Insert the round grated adapter through the back grooved side of the window kit plate with hole.

2. Secure the grated adapter by fastening the screws from flat side of the window kit plate to the holes on the grated adapter.

5

Installing the window plates

3. Open your window and place the window kit with grooved side facing outward on the window sill. Then, slide the window kit plate to fit the width of the window. You can use screws to secure the window kit plate from sliding.

CAUTION: Secure your window by using window locks. Please contact your EdgeStar retailer to purchase window locks.

4. Lower the window to secure the window kit in place. You may need to use duct tape to better secure the window kit.

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 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 or replace it with any other hose.

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

Warning: Longer hoses are not recommended.

Draining the Unit

When the portable air conditioner is in cooling mode, or dehumidify 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 WATER indicator will light up on the Control

Panel.

Direct drainage

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

2.Connect a drain hose to the drain port.

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.”

Operating the Remote Control

Power

Use the

 

Power button to turn the portable air conditioner on and off.

 

 

 

By default when you first use the power button, the unit will begin to

 

 

operate in cooling mode and the front panel will be illuminated in blue.

 

 

The unit will remember the last used mode/settings if you shut down and

 

 

restart.

 

 

 

 

 

Auto-Restart: If power to the unit is interrupted, the air conditioner will

 

 

restart itself in its last used mode/settings once power is restored. The

 

 

compressor will restart after 3 minutes.

 

 

 

 

Cooling Mode

Cooling mode cools and dehumidifies the air. If the ambient temperature

drops below the temperature you selected, the compressor turns off and the unit functions with the fan only. When the temperature rises above the temperature you selected, the compressor turns on again. The front panel lights will be blue.

Whether your desired temperature can actually be reached depends on the ambient conditions. The room temperature remaining above the set temperature is normal.

To operate the unit in cooling mode:

1)Make sure the power cord is plugged into a power outlet.

2)Press the Power button on the remote control.

3)Press the Mode button until the cooling indicator is selected.

4)Select the fan speed by using the Speed button.

You can switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius by pressing the

 

 

 

 

button.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dehumidifying Mode

During the Dehumidifying mode, the unit will condense water out of the air

and exhaust it through the exhaust hose. The ambient temperature in the

 

 

 

 

room will probably drop by a few degrees while using the Dehumidifying

 

 

mode. The front panel lights will be yellow.

 

 

To operate the unit in dehumidifying mode:

1)Make sure the power cord is plugged into a power outlet.

2)Press the Power button on the remote control.

3)Press the Mode button until the dehumidify indicator is selected.

NOTES: If the room temperature is below 77ºF, the fan will always run on low speed while in the Dehumidifying mode. If you do not use the exhaust hose in Dehumidifying mode, you must manually drain the water from the unit. Additionally, the ambient temperature in the room will probably rise by a few degrees if you do not use the exhaust hose. You will not be able to change the thermostat temperature while in Dehumidifying Mode.

Energy Saving Guide

Read and follow the guide below to get the best performance and efficiency from your portable air conditioner:

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

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

Minimize the length of the exhaust hose.

Make sure the exhaust hose is as straight as possible and avoid kinks or bends.

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

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.

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

Close all windows and doors.

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

Make sure the unit is on a level surface.

Minimize the amount of humidity in the room. For example, run the unit as a dehumidifier.

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

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

Inspect and replace the activated carbon filters regularly.

Perform routine maintenance.
