NOTE: You might want to remove the batteries during extended periods of non-use. This will prolong the battery life and safeguard against corrosion inside the remote control. The air conditioner Your air conditioner needs annual maintenance to help ensure steady, top performance throughout the year. Call the service company recommended by your dealer to: l Inspect and clean the coils and condensate water passages. l Check fan and fan motor. The compressor and fan motor are sealed and need no oiling. The expense of the annual inspection is the customer’s responsibility. OR If you are familiar with electrical appliances, you can do the cleaning and maintenance yourself. If you choose to do so, follow the steps on page 16. Electrical Shock, Product Damage and Personal Injury Hazard Unplug the power cord from the outlet before performing any maintenance. Be sure no liquid gets into the motor, electrical control box or compressor electrical terminals. l Do not lift, push or pull any white beaded foam (expanded polystyrene) parts. l Because your air conditioner weighs from 80 to 110 pounds, it is recommended that you have someone help you when you remove and m-install your unit and that you both use proper lifting techniques. . Handle the air conditioner with care. Watch out for the sharp, metal fins on the front and rear coils. l Do not use the collected water for drinking purposes. It is not sanitary. Failure to follow the above precautions could result in electrical shock, product damage or personal injury. l continued on next page 15 1. Unplug the power cord. 2. Remove the front panel.

Slide unit out of cabinet by using the handle in the center of the base flange. Wrap the motor, connector plug, electrical control box and compressor terminal box in plastic film and make sure no water or other liquid gets inside any of these parts. lt could cause damage to the insulation and cause serious electrical and mechanical problems. Carefully, clean and hose out the base, condenser coils and condensate pan. Clean at least once a year or more often if the condenser coil and pan collect dirt, sand, leaves, insects or algae. Also, clean if you detect an odor coming from the air conditioner. Remove the plastic film from the motor and electrical parts. Replace the unit in the cabinet. Reattach the green ground wire. Replace the front panel. Plug in the power cord. Handle NOTE: Wait 24 hours before starting the air conditioner again. This allows time for all areas to dry completely. The water from rainfall or from normal operation does not harm these components. Understanding normal When your air conditioner is operating normally, you will hear sounds such as: l Droplets of water hitting the condenser, causing a “pinging” or “clicking” sound. Water droplets help to cool the condenser. l Air movement from the fan, especially on high fan speed settings. l Clicks from the thermostat cycle. Sounds also may be caused by house construction-such as vibration of the unit due to wall construction or an unsteady window mounting area. 16 operating sounds If You Need Assistance Or Service This section is designed to help you save the cost of a service call.
