Installing Exhaust Hose to Window Slide Bar
for AC and Heating
Note: The window kit is only designed to be installed with sliding windows or doors. The window kit
is not designed or to be used with casement style windows. Measure your window kit according to the
dimensions of your sliding window. If the unit is larger than your required dimensions, it can be cut
using a saw or power tool. If the unit is too short for your opening, you can order an additional
window kit from our online store to extend it.
After assembling the Innovative AutoDrain Technology as per instructions on page 5, make sure hose is
firmly attached to oval connecter that fits into window slide bar.
Snap hose connecter into window slide bar opening. See Illustration 1.
Extend window slide bar to fit your window opening, either vertical or horizontal, depending on how
the window opens. See Figure D.
Important
The flexible exhaust hose can be extended from 12" to 60" for mounting. We recommend
that you keep the hose as short as possible to minimize possible loss back in the room.
This length has been designed especially according to the specifications of the
unit.
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 unit. Handle
with care to prevent any kink or bend in the exhaust hose.

Emptying The Water Container
This air conditioning does not require emptying of the water
container, except prior to season end storage.
This portable AC/H features the
Innovative AutoDrain 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. This makes the unit run more efficiently. Both this
evaporative technology and Innovative AutoDrain 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.

Cleaning
Always unplug the unit from the power supply (wall outlet) before
beginning the cleaning.
Housing
Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe the body clean. Never use strong
chemicals, oil-based products, detergents, chemically treated cloths or
other cleaning solutions. These could possibly damage the housing.
Filter
· Clean the filters every two weeks, if filters are blocked by dust,
machine efficiency will be reduced.
· Use a vacuum cleaner or tap the filter lightly to remove loose dust
and dirt from the filters and then rinse them thoroughly under running
water (not warmer than 104°F).
· Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth before inserting them back
into the unit.
Notice! Never operate the unit without the filters.
