will flash to signal that the container must be emptied (see page 9, “Emptying The
Water Container”).
When the unit is cooling, the compressor light will be on. If this light is off further cooling
is not needed at this time, or the compressor may be de-icing its coils.
The fan can still be on.

Operation
Remote Control
The air conditioner responds to all signals that are sent by the remote
control. Two AAA-batteries are required to use the remote control.
Point the remote control hand set towards the control panel of the
unit and press the relevant button, the red LED on the hand set will flash
whenever a button is pressed.
Note: the air flow direction can not be adjusted with the remote control.
Air Flow
Adjust the left-right direction of the outflowing air by turning
the roller on the front of the air outlet grill.
Adjust the up/down air flow by rotating the air outlet grill.
Important:
• The compressor will start approximately 3 minutes after the
unit is turned on (this will help prolong the life of the
compressor). After switching the unit off, please wait at least
3 minutes before turning the unit back on.
• The compressor will switch off when the room temperature
is lower than the set temperature. The fan will however
continue to work. When ambient temperature rises above
the set temperature, the cooling will resume.

Emptying The Water Container
This portable AC features the
Innovative AutoDrain NanoMist Technology™
Very little excess water should accumulate. During the process of
cooling, some of the water accumulated is actually used to cool the
unit internally, making it run more efficiently. Both this evaporative
technology and Innovative AutoDrain NanoMist Technology™ are
features not found in most portable air conditioners.
Switch off the unit and remove the plug from the outlet.
• Position a flat container or dish on the floor under the drain hole.
Do not allow the water to drip continuously into the
container as it might easily overflow.
• Remove the drain knob.
• Remove the rubber plug, the water will flow in the
container. When this is nearly full, replace the plug to
stop the water flow and empty it. Repeat this process
until all water has been removed.
• Replace the rubber plug into the drain hole firmly,
the WATER FULL LED should not flash any longer.
• Replace the drain knob.

the filter frame.
• Insert the active carbon filter into the
filter frame, underneath the tabs.
• Re-fit the filter frame inside the unit.
