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” (See Page 18) 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 manufactur'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.
E-6
WARNING ABOUT GROUNDING
• 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
socket 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.
• Drainage should be performed whenever moving the air conditioner. (See Page 29)
If any water remains in the tank, it may spill out while being moved.
• 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.
• 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.
E-7
ENGLISH
• 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.

PRECAUTIONS
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.
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 slightly slowed.
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. See page 30 on how to clean the filter.
• 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.

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.

REINSTALL THE FILTERS
Filters
• Gently pull the filter handle to the right and slide
the filter out of the unit.
• Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any dust. If the
filters are very dirty, wash them with detergent and
rinse carefully with clean water. Dry the filters in
the shade before reinstalling them.
• 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.
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.
CLEANING THE INSECT GUARD NET
The cooling performance may be reduced or stop
completely if the insect guard net becomes clogged
with dust.
Periodically remove the window exhaust adapter from
the window panel and clean the insect guard net with a
vacuum cleaner or suchlike.

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 page29)
• Check the power plug. (See page18)
• Is it set to FAN, DEHUMIDIFICATION or VENTILATION mode?
Cooling does not take place in these modes. Change the MODE setting.
• Are the filters clogged with dust?
Clean and replace the filters.
• 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 for about a minute upon starting AUXILIARY mode. This is
sound of running drainage pump inside the unit.
• 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 set by the FDA.
