. Pick the right window.
First, decide what
room(s) you want to cool. Then choose a
window that will allow the air-conditioned
air
to flow freely and directly into the room(s)
you want cooled. Remember, it’s difficult
to

move air around corners. Choose a window
that’s also near an electrical outlet. (Refer
to the ELECTRICAL
REQUIREMENT
pages
for type of receptacle and wiring needed.) Do
not use an extension
cord. The window in
which you place your air conditioner
should
have an opening of at least 26 inches in width
and at least 20 inches in height (see Figure 4).
Standard installation
parts are supplied for
double-hung sash windows up to 54 inches in
width.
. Attach seal strips to cabinet. Place 3/8” wide
self-adhering seal strip on window side of bottom flange. Now, starting at the lower corner
of the cabinet, apply 3/8”-wide
seal strips
over the center line of the pre-drilled holes for
one of the side mounting
angles, over the
center line of pre-drilled
holes for the top
mounting channel, and over the center line of
pre-drilled
holes for the other side mounting
angle. (See Figure 7.)

Slide unit out of cabinet. First, disconnect the

Attach side mounting angles to the sides of
the cabinet by using four hex-head sheet metal
screws (see Figure 8). Punch holes in seal
strip before driving screws. Be sure flange of
each side mounting
angle faces inside. Now
attach top mounting angle to cabinet by using
three hex-head sheet metal screws. Again, be
sure flange is facing inside.

Measure and cut filler board to proper sizes.
First, measure the distance
from inside one
window
channel to the inside of the other
channel and subtract l/4”. Now subtract the
width of the air conditioner
and divide by 2
(see Figure 9). This will give you the width to
cut each filler board. Be sure to cut the filler
board across the mid-section
of its longest
measurement. Because the filler boards will be
equal in width, they will automatically
center
your conditioner
in your window.

boards. The holes on each board should align
with the holes in the side mounting angles.
Each filler board should also extend about
l/2” above the top edge of the air conditioner
cabinet. Now apply 3/8”-wide
seal strips on
the room side of each filler board as shown in
Figure 10 (i.e. along the bottom edge and

Choose the type of decorative molding you
want to use around the room side of the cabinet. Your choice affects the finish frame
alignment with the inside wall. When using a
wood, metal or plastic molding, the finish
frame should almost line up with the inside
wall. If the wall is plastered to the cabinet

The AUTO FAN setting saves energy. The fan
will cycle on and off as the thermostat turns
the compressor on and off. This saves the cost
of electrical energy that would be used to run
the fan continuously.
It is normal for the fan to turn on and off in
the AUTO FAN setting. The amount of time
the unit will be off depends on room temperature and thermostat
setting.

conditioner won’t run
Is unit plugged into a live circuit with proper voltage?
Is switch turned on?
Is thermostat set correctly?
Have you checked your home’s main fuses or
circuit breaker box?
5. Has the time-delay fuse blown?
6. Has the local power failed?
Unit blows fuses:
1. Are time-delay fuses being used?
2. Is an extension cord being used? (Do not use an
extension cord to run your air conditioner.)
3. Are you waiting two minutes after turning cooling
circuit off before trying to restart unit?
Unit turns on and off, or does not cool room:
1. Is filter clean?
2. Are coils clean (both evaporator [inside] and
condenser [outside])?
3. Is there excessive moisture or heat (open vessel
cooking, showers, etc.)?
4. Try setting fan to higher speed.
5. Try setting thermostat to a cooler setting.
Operating sounds:
1. When your room air conditioner
is operating
normally, you will hear sounds such as:
l
Droplets of water hitting the condenser, causing
a “pinging” or “clicking” sound. Water droplets
help to cool the condenser.
l
Air movement from the fan, especially on high fan
speed setting.
l
Clicks from the thermostat cycle.
2. Sounds also may be caused by house construction
- such as vibration of the unit due to wall construction
or unsteady window mounting area.
