temperature is 77” or below, the unti cools to
3” below room temperature.

It is not necessary to set the clock on the remote
control to operate the air conditioner. However, it
is important to set the correct time of day if you
want to use the AUTO START and AUTO STOP
functions. This clock activates the AUTO START
and AUTO STOP functions, and it resets the air
conditioner’s internal clock every time a new
transmission is made.
To ret the clock
1. Press the CLOCK SET pad.
2. Press the TIME A (up) or V (down) pads
until the correct time of day appears in the
display. Be sure the time is set correctly for
AM or PM.
For a 24-hour time display, press the
TIME V pad. While holding in the TIME V
pad, press the TIME A pad. “24H” will show
next to the set time.
NOTE: For faster time movement, hold in the
A or V pad.
3. Press the CLOCK SET pad again to save
your time of day setting. You should hear a
confirmation beep from the air conditioner.
This example shows a set time of day of
12:OOPM (noon).
NOTE: The clock runs continuously-whether the
remote control is on or off. After removing or
replacing the batteries, the clock will have to be
reset.

maintenance
control
If the remote control is not working property (weak
display, erratic transmissions, etc.), the batteries
have become weak and need to be replaced.
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.

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.

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.
