Important Safety Instructions
NOTE:
This USE & CARE MANUAL provides specific operating instructions for your model. Use the room air conditioner only as
instructed in this USE & CARE MANUAL. These instructions are not meant to cover every possible condition and situation that
may occur. Common sense and caution must be practiced when installing, operating, and maintaining any appliance.
NOTE:
WARNING
The power supply cord with
this air conditioner contains a current
detection device designed to reduce the risk
of fire.
Please refer to the section ‘Operation of
Current Device’ for details.
In the event that the power supply cord is
damaged, it cannot be repaired. It must be
replaced with a cord from the product
manufacturer.
WARNING
Avoid fire hazard or electric shock. Do not
use an extension cord or an adaptor plug. Do
not remove any prong from the power cord.
Grounding type wall
receptacle
For Your Safety
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any
other appliance. Read product labels for flammability and other warnings.
WARNING
Prevent Accidents
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using your air conditioner,
follow basic precautions, including the following:
Be sure the electrical service is adequate for the model you have chosen. This information
can be found on the serial plate, which is located on the side of the cabinet and behind the
grille.
If the air conditioner is to be installed in a window, you will probably want to clean both
sides of the glass first. If the window is a triple-track type with a screen panel included,
remove the screen completely before installation.
Be sure the air conditioner has been securely and correctly installed according to the
separate installation instructions provided with this manual. Save this manual and the
installation instructions for possible future use in removing or reinstalling this unit.
When handling the air conditioner, be careful to avoid cuts from sharp metal fins on front
and rear coils.
Do not, under any
circumstances, cut,
remove, or bypass the
grounding prong.
Power supply cord
with 3-prong grounding
plug and current
detection device
WARNING
Electrical Information
The complete electrical rating of your new room air conditioner is stated on the serial plate.
Refer to the rating when checking the electrical requirements.
Be sure the air conditioner is properly grounded. To minimize shock and fire hazards,
proper grounding is important. The power cord is equipped with a three-prong grounding
plug for protection against shock hazards.
Your air conditioner must be used in a properly grounded wall receptacle. If the wall
receptacle you intend to use is not adequately grounded or protected by a time delay fuse
or circuit breaker, have a qualified electrician install the proper receptacle.
Do not run air conditioner without outside protective cover in place. This could result in
mechanical damage within the air conditioner.
Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.
READ THIS SECTION BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO OPERATE AIR CONDITIONER.
Unit must be upright for one hour prior to operating.
The power supply cord contains a current device that senses damage to the power cord. To test
your power supply cord do the following:
Plug in &
press RESET
Plug in the Air Conditioner.
The power supply cord will have TWO buttons on the plug head. Press the TEST button. You will
notice a click as the RESET button pops out.
Press the RESET button. Again you will notice a click as the button engages.
The power supply cord is now supplying electricity to the unit. (On some products this is also indicated by a light on the plug head).
NOTE:
Do not use this device to turn the unit on or off.
Always make sure the RESET button is pushed in for correct operation.
The power supply cord must be replaced if it fails to reset when either the TEST button is pushed,
or it cannot be reset. A new one can be obtained from the product manufacturer.
If power supply cord is damaged, it CANNOT be repaired. It MUST be replaced by one obtained
from the product manufacturer.

ADDITIONAL THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
Now that you have mastered the operating procedure, here are more features in your control that you should become familiar with.
The "Cool" circuit has an automatic 3 minute time delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly.
This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping. The fan will continue
to run during this time.
There is a 2-Second delay for the compressor shutting down when selecting FAN ONLY. This is to cover the possibility of having
to roll through to select another mode.
The control will maintain the set temperature within 2 degrees Fahrenheit, between 60F and 90F degrees.
After a power outage, the unit will memorize the last setting and return the unit to the same setting once power is restored.
Fresh Air Vent Control (on some models)
The Fresh Air Vent allows the air conditioner to:
1. Recirculate inside air - Vent Closed (see Fig. 1)
2. Draw fresh air into the room - Fresh Air (see Fig. 2)
3. Exchange air from the room - Vent Open (see Fig. 3)
Figure 1 (VENT CLOSED)
Figure 3 (VENT OPEN)
Figure 2 (FRESH AIR)
Air Directional Louvers
AUGER WHEELS
Air directional louvers control air flow direction. Your air conditioner has the louver
type described below.
Auger Type
(8-WAY)
2009 Electrolux Home Products, Inc.
The louvers will allow you to direct the air flow Up or Down and Left or Right
throughout the room as needed. Rotate the Auger Wheels until the desired
Left/Right direction is obtained. Pivot horizontal louvers until the desired
Up/Down direction is obtained.

Care and Cleaning & Energy Saving Ideas
Care and Cleaning
Clean your air conditioner occasionally to keep it looking new. Be sure to unplug
the unit before cleaning to prevent shock or fire hazards.
Air Filter Cleaning
The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is
necessary. Trapped particles in the filter can build up and cause an accumulation
of frost on the cooling coils.
Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position(where applicable).
Open the front panel.
Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.
Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter
thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is
thoroughly dry before replacing
Or instead of washing, you may vacuum the filter clean.
NOTE: When replacing the air filter after cleaning, make sure the tabs on the air
filter are on the upper part of filter, and placed outward as shown in the drawing
on the left side.
Cabinet Cleaning
Tab
Be sure to unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or fire hazard. The
cabinet and front may be dusted with an oil-free cloth or washed with a cloth
dampened in a solution of warm water and mild liquid dishwashing detergent.
Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry.
Never use harsh cleaners, wax or polish on the cabinet front.
Be sure to wring excess water from the cloth before wiping around the controls.
Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the air conditioner.
Plug in air conditioner.
Air Filter
Winter Storage
If you plan to store the air conditioner during the winter, remove it carefully from
the window according to the installation instructions. Cover it with plastic or return
it to the original carton.
Energy Saving Ideas
Do not block air flow inside with blinds, curtains or furniture; or outside with
shrubs, enclosures, or other buildings.
The capacity of the room air conditioner must fit the room size for efficient and
satisfactory operation.
Install the room air conditioner on the shady side of your home. A window that faces
north is best because it is shaded most of the day.
Close the fireplace damper, floor and wall registers so cool air does not escape up
the chimney and into the duct work.
Keep blinds and drapes in other windows closed during the sunniest part of the day.
Clean the air filter as recommended in the section “Care and Cleaning”.
Proper insulation and weather stripping in your home will help keep warm air out
and cool air in.
External house shading with trees, plants or awnings will help reduce the air
conditioner’s work load.
Operate heat producing appliances such as ranges, washers, dryers and dishwashers
during the coolest part of the day.
