Room Air Conditioner

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

Do not use as an on/off switch

Do not use outdoors

Do not push furniture against or place furniture on the electrical cord. This can trip the test switch and/or damage the cord and become a potential condition for arcing

Do not attempt to repair the cord. If the cord requires replacement, call an authorized servicer.

The Arc Detection Device is not a Ground Fault Interrupter and should not be used as such

The Arc Detection Device contains an electronic circuit board and should not be submerged or exposed to water spray

Resetting

If the Arc Detection Device has tripped, the reset button will pop up.

Follow these steps to reset the Arc Detection Device:

1.Unplug unit from electrical outlet

2.Press the reset button

3.Plug the unit back into electrical outlet

4.Check to see if power has returned to the unit

Testing

You should test the Arc Detection Device equipped power cord monthly, after every major electrical storm, or if power to your Room Air Conditioner has been interrupted.

Follow these steps to test the Arc Detection Device:

1.Unplug unit from electrical outlet

2.Press the reset button

3.Plug the unit back into electrical outlet

4.Press test button.

Unit should trip and reset button will pop up.

5.Press reset button again for use

If above test fails, stop using the air conditioner and contact customer service by calling the following tollfree number:

1-800-332-6658

or email: customerservice@fedders.com

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.

Room Air Conditioner

Additional Safety Precautions

Do not cut, alter or remove any of the expanded polystyrene (styrofoam) inside this air conditioner.

Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.

Do not introduce objects in the air discharge area. This could cause permanent damage.

Do not pour liquids on the air conditioner as this could cause a malfunction. With the unit unplugged, use a damp cloth for cleaning the unit.

Do not use strong solvents to clean the air conditioner.

Clean the air conditioner filter every two weeks to avoid overheating caused by air obstruction. Do not operate without filter.

Do not obstruct the air intake area of your air conditioner, as this could cause overheating, thus activating the unit’s security switch and shutting off the unit.

Do not block air circulation to outside louvers of cabinet.

Do not block air flow inside with blinds, curtains, or furniture, or outside with shrubs, enclosures, or other buildings.

Do not run the air conditioner with an outside protective cover in place. This could result in fire or mechanical damage within the air conditioner.

Window Requirements

Air conditioner is factory prepared for installation in standard double hung windows (air conditioner cannot be installed in other types of windows). The air conditioner can be installed in windows 23” to 34” wide when filler panels are used. In windows 19” to 22” wide the air conditioner can be installed without the filler panels. All windows must open at least 12 3/4” vertically.

Install the air conditioner in a window where there will be enough clearance around the cabinet to allow ample circulation of air through unit. All supporting parts should be secured to firm wood, masonry, or metal.

3.To overcome storm window interference, securely attach 2” wide wood strips to the window stool and sill, with screws. Strips should be as long as window opening and flush with back side of stool. Thickness of strips should be controlled by amount of interference (Fig. 3).

4.Keeping a firm grip on air conditioner, carefully center air conditioner in window opening with the bottom bar between the window stool and the angle bracket. Air conditioner should slant slightly downward on the outside as shown by half a bubble off on a carpenters level. This outward pitch prevents water from entering the room (Fig. 3).

5.Close the window until it touches behind air conditioner top bar. Slide filler panels outward until they touch window sash tracks. (Do not release grip on air conditioner until lower window sash is in final position) (Fig. 3).
