*For filter grille installations only.
WARNING: Never operate your unit without filters
in place. Failure to heed this warning may result in damage to the blower motor and/or compressor. An accumulation of dust and lint on internal parts of your unit
can cause loss of efficiency and, in some cases, fire.
2. Do not turn off electrical power to this unit without
first turning off the gas supply.
3. When removing access panels or performing maintenance functions inside your unit, be aware of sharp
sheet metal parts and screws. Although special care
is taken to reduce sharp edges to a minimum, be extremely careful when handling parts or reaching into
the unit.
II. Heat Exchanger
To ensure dependable and efficient heating operation, the heat
exchanger should be checked by a qualified maintenance person before each heating season, and cleaned when necessary.
This checkout should not be attempted by anyone not having
the required expertise and equipment to properly do the job.
Checking and/or cleaning the heat exchanger involves removing the gas controls assembly and the flue collector box cover
and, when completed, reinstalling the gas controls assembly
for proper operation. Also, the flue collector box cover must
be replaced correctly so that a proper seal is maintained. Contact your dealer for the required periodic maintenance.
I. Air Filters
Air filter(s) should be checked at least every 3 or 4 weeks and
changed or cleaned whenever it becomes dirty. Dirty filters
produce excessive stress on the blower motor and can cause
the motor to overheat and shut down. Table 1 indicates the
correct filter size for your unit. Refer to Fig. 5 to access the
filter(s).
To replace or inspect filter(s) (or accessory filter rack when
supplied):
1. Remove the filter access panel using a 5⁄16-in. nut driver.
2. Remove the filter(s) by pulling the filter(s) out of the unit.
If the filter(s) is dirty, clean or replace with new one.
When installing the new filter(s), note the direction of the airflow arrows on the filter frame.
III. Fans and Fan Motor
Periodically check the condition of fan wheels and housings and fan-motor shaft bearings. No lubrication of
condenser- or evaporator-fan bearings or motors is required
or recommended.
IV. Evaporator and Condenser Coils
Cleaning of the coils should only be done by qualified service
personnel. Contact your dealer for the required annual
maintenance.
—3—
V. Condensate Drain
VII. Condenser Fan
The drain pan and condensate drain line should be checked
and cleaned at the same time the cooling coils are checked by
your dealer.
WARNING: Do not poke sticks, screwdrivers, or any
other object into revolving fan blades. Severe bodily injury may result.
VI. Compressor
The fan must be kept free of all obstructions to ensure proper
cooling. Contact your dealer for any required service.
All compressors are factory-shipped with a normal charge of
the correct type refrigeration grade oil in them and should
rarely require additional oil. The service person must be certain the proper oil level is maintained in the compressor when
it is installed and running.

Watch the burner flame to see if it is bright blue. If you
observe a suspected malfunction or if the burner flames
are not bright blue, call your dealer.
6. Replace burner access panel.
XI. Unit Panels
After performing any maintenance or service on the unit, be
sure all panels are fastened securely in place to prevent rain
from entering unit cabinet and to prevent disruption of the
correct unit airflow pattern.
REGULAR DEALER MAINTENANCE
In addition to the type of routine maintenance you might be
willing to perform, your unit should be inspected regularly
by a properly trained service technician. An inspection (preferably each year, but at least every other year) should include the following:
1. Inspection of all flue product passages — including the
burners, heat exchanger, and flue collector box.
ACCESS PANEL
FILTER ACCESS
PANEL*
*For accessory filter rack.
2. Inspection of all combustion- and ventilation-air passages and openings.
3. Close inspection of all gas pipes leading to and inside
of your unit.
4. Inspection and, if required, cleaning of the condenser
and evaporator coils.
5. Inspection and, if required, cleaning of the evaporator
drain pan.
6. Inspection and cleaning of blower wheel housing and
motor.
7. Inspection of all supply-air and return-air ducts for leaks,
obstructions, and insulation integrity. Any problems
found should be resolved at this time.
8. Inspection of the unit base to ensure that no cracks,
gaps, etc., exist which may cause a hazardous
condition.
9. Inspection of the unit casing for signs of deterioration.
10. Inspection of all electrical wiring and components to
assure proper connection.
Fig. 5 — Filter Access Panel — Vertical Supply Shown
VIII. Electrical Controls and Wiring
Electrical controls are difficult to check without proper instrumentation; therefore, if there are any discrepancies in the
operating cycle, contact your dealer and request service.
IX. Refrigerant Circuit
The refrigerant circuit is difficult to check for leaks without
the proper equipment; therefore, if inadequate cooling is suspected, contact your local dealer for service.
X. Combustion Area and Vent System
The combustion area and vent system should be inspected
visually before each heating season. The normal accumulation of dirt, soot, rust, and scale can result in loss of efficiency and improper performance if allowed to build up.
CAUTION: If your unit makes an especially loud noise
when the main burners are ignited, shut down the heating section and call your dealer.
11. Inspection for leaks in the refrigerant circuit. Pressurecheck to determine appropriate refrigerant charge.
12. Inspection of compressor oil level.
13. Operational check of the unit to determine working conditions. Repair or adjustment should be made at this
time.
Your servicing dealer may offer an economical service contract that covers seasonal inspections. Ask for further
details.
Complete service instructions can be found in the unit
Installation, Start-Up and Service Instructions.
Proceed as follows to inspect the combustion area and powerventing system of your unit.
1. Turn off electrical power and gas supply to your unit.
2. Remove burner access panel. (See Fig. 1.)
3. Using a flashlight, carefully inspect the burner areas for
dirt, soot, rust, or scale. See Fig. 2.
CAUTION: If dirt, soot, rust, or scale accumulations
are found, call your dealer and do not operate your heating section.
4. When you have completed your inspection, follow the
start-up procedures in this manual to restore your unit
to operation.
5. Observe unit heating operation.
WARRANTIES
Units 582A and 583A have warranties located at the back of

—7—
NOTE: Before proceeding with the next check, turn OFF the
gas supply, then the electrical power supply to the unit. Remove the control access door.
BEFORE YOU CALL FOR SERVICE,
CHECK FOR SEVERAL EASILY SOLVED
PROBLEMS
If insufficient heating or cooling is suspected:
( ) During the heating season, check the control dial on the
internal gas valve. Is it in the ON position? If it is not, be
sure it was not turned off for the purpose of safety. If no safety
hazards exist, follow the start-up procedures in this manual.
( ) Check for sufficient airflow. Check the air filter for dirt.
Check for blocked return-air or supply-air grilles. Be sure they
are open and unobstructed. If these checks do not reveal the
cause, call your servicing dealer.
( ) If your unit still fails to operate, call your servicing dealer
for troubleshooting and repairs. Specify the model and serial
numbers of your unit. (Record them in this manual in the
space provided.) If the dealer knows exactly which unit you
have, he may be able to offer suggestions over the phone, or
save valuable time through knowledgeable preparation for the
service call.
If your unit is not operating at all, check the following list for
easy solutions:
( ) Check to be sure that your thermostat temperature selector is set above the indoor temperature during the heating
season, or below the indoor temperature during the cooling
season. Be sure the system switch is in the proper HEAT or
COOL position and not in the OFF position.
IN CASE OF TROUBLE
If after performing the above and unit performance is still
unsatisfactory, shut off the unit and call your dealer.
( ) Is the electrical supply switch ON? Are any fuses blown,
or has the circuit breaker tripped?
( ) During the heating season, check the external manual
shutoff valve. Is this lever parallel with the pipe, indicating
that the valve is open? Or is the lever at a right angle,
indicating that the valve is closed? If closed, has the gas been
shut off for safety reasons? Otherwise, you may open the valve
and follow the start-up procedures listed in this manual.
