INSTALLATION

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS & SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Power Cord with

Arc Detection Device

The power cord supplied with this air conditioner is equipped with an Arc Detection Device designed to shut off power to the unit when it senses an arc fault condition. An arc fault is an unintentional electrical discharge that occurs when electrical products or wires are damaged, aged, or improperly used. An arc fault can be potentially hazardous if left undetected.

WARNING

Do not remove or modify this plug

Warning

Electrical Shock Hazard

• Plug unit only into a grounded electrical outlet.

Do not use an extension cord or plug adapter with this unit.

Do not operate unit with decorative front or filter removed.

Failure to follow these precautions could result in electrical shock, fire or personal injury.

If the air conditioner has a serial plate rating of 115 volts and greater than 7.5 amps, it must have its own fuse or circuit breaker, and no other device or unit should be operated on that fuse or circuit breaker.

If the air conditioner has a serial plate rating of 230 volts, it must have its own fuse or circuit breaker, and no other device or unit should be operated on that fuse or circuit breaker.

We recommend that a qualified electrician install unit in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances.

Use copper conductors of correct wire gauge and protector size only.

Do not alter cord or plug end. Do not remove warning label on cord.

Important Grounding Requirements

Air conditioner has a three-prong grounding plug on the power supply cord, which must be plugged into a properly grounded three-prong wall receptacle for your protection against possible shock hazard. For models up to and including 7.5 amperes, use a grounding type wall receptacle to match the cord plug.

For models above 7.5 amperes use a single outlet grounding type wall receptacle to match the cord plug.

Warning

Do not operate this air conditioner without proper time delay circuit protection (circuit breaker or fuse). Refer to serial plate for proper power supply requirements.

Casement Window Installation

This air conditioner is designed to fit into most casement type windows. As shipped from factory, unit will fit into a minimum window opening 15 1/2” wide and 21” high. The preferred method of installation is through a closed or stationary window. Installation in an open window frame is also possible where open window can be secured to outside of building or removed completely.

1.Closed or Stationary Window: Install unit in stationary sash to avoid crank handles or window latches. If unit is to be installed in or next to a movable sash, it may be necessary to remove catch, handle or both. Remove crank handle and secure window in closed position. Remove glass panes and separating strips to a height sufficient to mount unit.

2.Open Window Frame: Remove crank mechanism and catch handles. Fold window sash back against exterior wall of building and secure, or remove completely where possible.

3.A filler panel will be required at side of unit when installed in windows having width greater than 15 1/2”. Filler panel should be made from 3/4” thick wood securely anchored to one side of opening so that 15 1/2” wide opening is provided. Filler panel should run full length of window. Paint to suit.

4.Install unit in same manner as described for sliding windows.

Installation in Wood Sliding or Wood Casement Windows

1.For wood frame casement windows, it is necessary to construct a frame, using at least 1” thick wood with a 15 1/2” wide opening.

2.Paint frame and fasten it securely, sealing it into window opening.

3.Install unit into frame following procedures for metal sliding and casement windows.

These installations are also typical, and since styles and sizes of casement windows vary widely, it is advisable to have unit installed by someone skilled in this type of installation. The dealer selling these units can recommend or supply qualified people to install your new unit.

SERVICE

TROUBLESHOOTING

Service To save time and expense, check the following before calling an authorized service station.

Insufficient Cooling

Shut all windows and doors in room.

Remove any obstructions from inside and outside louvers.

Close Air Exchanger.

Inspect filter and clean if dirty.

Under certain conditions the cooling coils directly behind the filter, may ice up and block the airflow. This is a common occurrence in air conditioners caused when the outside temperature drops below 70°F (21°C) while the humidity remains high. If this happens, simply turn the unit off and allow the ice to melt, then resume normal operation.
