INSTALLATION
WARNING!
Before using the air conditioner it should be left in an upright position for at least
2 hours. This unit can easily be moved from one room to another.
In doing so keep this in mind:
– Ensure that the unit is positioned upright, on a level surface and 50 cm away
from any obstacles.
– To place the loose filters in the filter holder.
• Take the filter holder out of the air conditioner.
• Open the filter holder and place the active carbon filter (black) in the filter holder.
• Place the filter fixing component back in the holder.
• Place the filter holder back in the air conditioner.
– Do not operate the unit inside the bathroom, shower, or in any other very humid
environment.
– Connect the hose to the unit by turning it clockwise (at least 5 turns).
– Similarly, connect the hose to the slide bar connector as far as possible.
– Place the telescopic slide bar in the open window or door and adjust the length
to fill as much open space as possible.
– Put the slide bar connector in the opening in the telescopic slide bar.
– Close the window or door as much as possible to prevent outside air entering the
room.
– Ensure that the slide bar connector has a free flow outside.
IMPORTANT!
The flexible exhaust hose can be extended from 500 to 1500 mm for mounting.
This length has been designed especially according to the specifications of the air
conditioner. Do not use an extension or exchange for a different hose as that may
lead to malfunctioning. The exhaust air must flow freely, any blockage can lead to
overheating of the air conditioner. Take care to prevent any sharp bow or bend in the
exhaust.
