PRECAUTIONS
Points to keep in mind when using your air conditioner.
WARNINGS FOR USE
• Install the air conditioner in accordance with the installation instructions in the latter section of this
manual.
• Do not modify any part of this product.
• Do not insert anything into any part of the unit.
• Ensure the power supply used has an appropriate voltage rating.
Only use a three-pin grounded electrical AC socket rated 125V, 60Hz, and 15 amps
or more as shown on the right.
Use of a power supply with an improper voltage rating can result in damage to the
unit and possibly fire.
• Always use a fuse with the proper amp rating.
Do not, under any circumstances, use wire, pins or other objects in place of a proper fuse.
• In the event of any abnormality with the air conditioner (ex. a burning smell), turn it off immediately
and disconnect the power supply.
WARNING FOR POWER SUPPLY CORD
•
•
•
•
•
•
This air conditioner uses a plug with a built-in fuse.
Read the precautions on the plug before using the air conditioner.
Always conduct a “Power Plug Check” before use to confirm the power plug functions normally.
This power plug must only be plugged into an appropriate wall socket. Do not use in conjunction
with any extension cords.
Push the power plug securely into the socket and make sure it is not loose.
Do not pull, deform, or modify the power supply cord, or immerse it in water.
Pulling or misuse of the power supply cord can result in damage to the unit and cause electrical shock.
A damaged power supply cord must be replaced with a new power supply cord obtained from the
product manufacturer and not repaired. Replacement must be performed by manufacture's service
agent in order to avoid a hazard.
NOTE
Radio or TV Interference
If this room air conditioner should cause interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the room air conditioner and radio/TV receiver.
• Connect the room air conditioner into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the radio/TV receiver is
connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
WARNING ABOUT GROUNDING
• Improper use of the grounding plug can result
in the risk of electric shock.
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of
an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the
risk of an electric shock by providing a less resistant conduit for the electric current.
This appliance is equipped with a cord that has a
grounding wire connected to a grounding plug. The
plug must be plugged into a socket that is properly
installed and grounded.
• Do not under any circumstances cut or remove
the round grounding pin from this plug.
Consult a qualified electrician or serviceman if the
grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if in any doubt as to whether the appliance is properly grounded.
If a grounding adapter is used, make sure the electrical box is fully grounded.

USAGE CAUTIONS
• Ventilate the room periodically during use, especially if using gas appliances.
• Be sure to turn the unit off and disconnect the power supply cord before performing any maintenance or cleaning.
• Do not splash or pour water directly onto the unit.
Water can cause electrical shock or equipment damage.
• Remove the window panel in the event of particularly adverse weather.
Extremely adverse weather may cause water to leak in through the openings.
• To ensure proper drainage, the drainage hose must have no kinks or be on a different level during
dehumidification mode.
The drained water may spill out into the room.
•
•
ENGLISH
• Drainage should be performed whenever moving the air conditioner.
If any water remains in the tank, it may spill out while being moved.
The temperature around the drainage hose must not be below freezing point when used.
Drained water may freeze inside the hose, causing water inside the unit to overflow into the room.
Do not block the exhaust air outlet with obstacles.
Cooling performance may be reduced or stop completely.
NOTES ON OPERATION
• Allow 3 minutes for the compressor to restart cooling.
If you turn the air conditioner off and immediately restart it, allow three minutes for the compressor to restart
cooling. There is an electronic device in the unit that keeps the compressor turned off for three minutes for
safety.
• In the event of a power failure during use, allow 3 minutes before restarting the unit.
After power is reinstated, restart the air conditioner. If the power was off for less than three minutes, be sure
to wait at least three minutes before restarting the unit. If you restart the air conditioner within three minutes,
a protective device in the unit may cause the compressor to shut off. This protective device will prevent cooling for about 5 minutes. Any previous settings will be canceled and the unit will return to its initial settings.
• Low temperature operation: Is your unit freezing up?
Freezing may occur when the unit is set close to 64°F in low ambient temperature conditions, especially at
night.
In these conditions, a further temperature drop may cause the unit to freeze.
Setting the unit to a higher temperature will prevent it from freezing.
• Dehumidification mode increases room temperature.
The unit generates heat during dehumidification mode and the room temperature will rise. Warm air will be
blown out from the Exhaust air outlet, but this is normal and does not indicate a problem with the unit.
• This air conditioner blows the warm air generated by the unit outside the room via the exhaust hose
while in cool mode.
Accordingly, the same amount of air as that blown out will enter the room from outside through any
openings into the room.
• When cooling operation is performed at high humidity conditions, water tank inside the unit may frequently become full.
When water tank inside the unit is full, the unit stops operating and TIMER, OPERATION and MEGA COOL
lamps will blink. In this case, perform drainage to drain out water within the unit.

PRECAUTIONS
OPERATING CONDITIONS
• The air conditioner must be operated within the temperature range indicated below.
MODE
Room temperature
Cool
64°F ~ 95°F
Dehumidification
59°F ~ 95°F
• A built-in safety device may cut off operation if the temperature exceeds these limits.
• When cooling operation is performed at high room temperature, the fan may run at a
slower speed.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY TIPS
• Avoid direct sunlight.
Close blinds, drapes or shades to keep out direct sunlight while in cooling mode.
• Keep the filter clean.
Keeping the filter clean greatly aids efficient operation.
A dirty filter blocks the flow of air, making your air conditioner work harder and less efficiently.
• Turn off unnecessary lights.
Your air conditioner must remove the heat produced by your lights or other heat-producing appliances. Turn off any lights or appliances that are not in use.
• Turn off the air conditioner when no one is home.
Use only when necessary. The less time the air conditioner is used, the lower the running costs.
LOCATION
• The air conditioner should be placed on a firm foundation to minimize noise and vibration.
For safe and secure positioning, place the unit on a smooth, level floor strong enough to
support the unit.
• The unit has casters to aid placement, but it should only be rolled on smooth, flat surfaces. Use caution when rolling on carpet surfaces. Do not attempt to roll the unit over
objects.
• The unit must be placed within reach of a properly rated grounded socket.
• Never place any obstacles around the air inlet or outlet of the unit.
• Allow at least 12" (30cm) of space from the wall for efficient air-conditioning.

MAINTENANCE
Be sure to disconnect the power from the wall socket before performing any maintenance.
CLEANING THE FILTER
AIR FILTER
1 REMOVE THE FILTER
• Gently pull the filter handle to the right and
slide the filter out of the unit.
ENGLISH
If the filter is clogged with dust, the airflow will be reduced, resulting in poor cooling
performance. The filter should be cleaned every two weeks.
2 CLEAN THE FILTER
Air filter
Air inlet filter
• Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any dust. If
the filter is very dirty, wash it with detergent
and rinse carefully with clean water. Dry the
filter in the shade before reinstalling them.
3 REINSTALL THE FILTER
• Hold the filter handle and gently push the filter
back into place.
Never operate the unit without the filter. Doing
so may result in serious damage to the unit.
Grille
AIR INLET FILTER (For single-duct type)
Remove the grille and clean the air inlet filter
with a vacuum cleaner.
CLEANING THE UNIT AND THE REMOTE CONTROL
Wipe them with a soft, dry cloth or with a cloth moistened with a mild soap. Carefully remove
any residue by wiping with a damp cloth and dry completely.
Avoid splashing water onto the unit. Water can dangerously damage the electrical insulation.
Never use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners on any part of the unit. To avoid damaging
the unit, do not use hot water (120°F/50°C or hotter) when cleaning.
MAINTENANCE AFTER AIR CONDITIONER SEASON
1
Perform drainage to drain out water within the unit.

BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE
If the unit appears to be malfunctioning, check the following points before calling
for a service.
AIR CONDITIONER DOES NOT OPERATE AT ALL
• Is the unit plugged in or is the plug loose?
• Has the fuse blown or is the circuit breaker tripped?
• Did you restart the unit within 3 minutes of a power failure?
If the power was off for less than 3 minutes when, you restarted the air conditioner, a protective
device may cause the compressor to shut off, preventing cooling for about 5 minutes.
• Are the OPERATION, TIMER and MEGA COOL lamps blinking?
The water tank inside the unit is full. It must be drained. (See page 30)
• Check the power plug. (See page 22)
AIR CONDITIONER DOES NOT COOL PROPERLY
• Is it set to FAN, DEHUMIDIFICATION or VENTILATION mode?
Cooling does not take place in these modes. Change the MODE setting.
• Is the filter clogged with dust?
Clean the filter.
• Is the cooling coil frozen?
No air will blow out if the cooling coil is frozen.
Run the air conditioner in FAN mode with the fan speed set to "HIGH" until all ice dissipates.
• Is the temperature set properly?
• Is the window exposed to direct sunlight?
Close the curtains or blinds to minimize solar energy heating the room.
• Is the exhaust hose too long?
For efficient operation, make the hose as short as possible. The exhaust hose must not be twisted
or bent.
SOUNDS
• The unit may seem rather loud for the first 2 to 3 minutes when the unit is turned on. This is the
sound of the compressor starting-up and is perfectly normal.
• A soft, swishing noise can be heard immediately after the unit is turned on or off, and also during
operation. This is the sound of the refrigerant flowing inside the unit.
• A low buzzing noise is emitted when the unit is generating Plasmacluster ions.
• This air conditioner evaporates water condensed during cooling operation within the unit through
the exhaust air outlet. Although water flowing sound way be heard, this is normal.
• An audible gurgling sound may be heard when the unit is operated on a gently sloping
floor. Place the unit on a level floor.
TIMER DOES NOT WORK PROPERLY
• If a power failure occurs while the TIMER is set, the TIMER setting will be cancelled and will not
be retrieved even after the power is restored. This is normal for this unit.
THE UNIT FAILS TO REACT TO THE REMOTE CONTROL SIGNAL
• Check the batteries in the remote control. Replace if necessary.
• Try to send the signal again with the remote control pointed directly at the unit’s signal receiver
window.
• Check whether the remote control batteries are installed with the polarities properly aligned.
THE DISCHARGED AIR HAS AN ODOR
• Plasmacluster ion generator emit small traces of ozone which may produce an odor. These
ozone emissions are below safety levels.
