ATTENTION INSTALLING PERSONNEL
RECOGNIZE THIS SYMBOL AS A SAFETY PRECAUTION.
As a professional installer you have an obligation to know the product better than the customer. This
includes all safety precautions and related items.
Prior to actual installation, thoroughly familiarize yourself with this Instruction Manual. Pay special
attention to all safety warnings. Often during installation or repair it is possible to place yourself in a
position which is more hazardous than when the unit is in operation.
Remember, it is your responsibility to install the product safely and to know it well enough to be able to
instruct a customer in its safe use.
Safety is a matter of common sense...a matter of thinking before acting. Most dealers have a list of
specific good safety practices...follow them.
The precautions listed in this Installation Manual are intended as supplemental to existing practices.
However, if there is a direct conflict between existing practices and the content of this manual, the
precautions listed here take precedence.

Unit Features
This unit has an exhaust air option which allows you to bring
outdoor air into the room. To bring air in from outside, snap
in the supplied perforated exhaust air plug (Figure 1) in the
location shown in Figure 2. To use only indoor air, snap in
the solid exhaust air plug.
NOTE: The exhaust air option (perforated plate installed)
can be used in any operation mode.
The carrier is responsible for making prompt inspection of
damage and for a thorough investigation of each claim. The
distributor or manufacturer will not accept claims from

Description
Unit Accessories
This unit is designed for through-the-wall installation in new
or existing buildings. To complete the installation in an
existing wall sleeve, a TWKG rear louver panel kit, a
TWEAK or TWFAK adapter kit is required.
If the sleeve is a GE wall sleeve, use the TWKG rear louver
panel kit. If the sleeve is an Emerson wall sleeve, use the
TWEAK adapter kit, If the sleeve is a Fedders or Freidrich
wall sleeve, use the TWFAK adapter kit.
The chassis and wall sleeve are shipped separate.
Operating Instructions
Check the data specification plate and ensure the proper
voltage and current rating for the type of power plug on the
unit is available. DO NOT REMOVE THE GROUNDING
PRONG FROM THE POWER CORD. See Figure 3 for the
types of acceptable plugs. Do not use an extension cord for
the installation of this product. Refer to the data specification plate for electrical requirements.

REAR LOUVER PANEL
A TWKG rear louver panel kit is required for unit installation
into an existing GE 26” wall sleeve. A TWEAK or TWFAK
adapter kit is required for unit installation into an existing 27”
wall sleeve. The rear louver panel directs air flow for proper
unit operation and protects the outdoor coil. The panel must
be installed before installing the chassis. These kits are not
supplied with the unit. Refer to the Installation Instructions
supplied with the rear louver panel kit for a complete
description of the installation procedure.
Installation Instructions
To ensure that the unit operates safely and efficiently, it
must be installed, operated, and maintained according to
these installation and operating instructions and all local
codes and ordinances, or, in their absence, with the latest
edition of the National Electrical Code. The proper installation of this unit is described in the following sections.
Following the steps in the order presented should ensure
proper installation.
NOTE: If using a GE wall sleeve, ensure that the rear
enclosure panel is removed before installing the TWKG
panel.
NOTE: Attach the supplied 1/2” x 1” x 14” foam prior to
installation of unit. Remove adhesive backing strip and
place the foam on unit as shown in Figure 4.

CHASSIS INSTALLATION
1. Inspect the ground wire (Figure 6) on the unit and
ensure it is attached to the left side panel. If not, attach
the wire to the panel.
2. Remove the mounting screw from the left hand side of
the existing sleeve (Figure 6). Place the screw through
the eyelet on the unattached end of the ground wire of
the unit and reinsert into its mounting hole.

Discharge Air
Grille
1. Remove the grille and filter from the front panel (Figure
10). Doing one side at a time, press the tab on the front
panel (Figure 10) with one hand while lifting the grille
with the other.
IMPORTANT NOTES:
1. The unit is equipped with a rubber-grommet-mounted
compressor. These grommets are factory set and
require no adjustment.
2. Obstruction to air flow must be checked and removed.
Check the indoor and outdoor grilles for obstructions.
The unit must be located where curtains, furniture,
trees, or other objects do not block air flow to and from
the unit. If air is obstructed and/or deflected back into
the unit, the air conditioner’s compressor may cycle on
and off rapidly. This could cause damage to the
compressor.
Wiring
Before wiring the unit, please review the following warnings
and cautions.

ADDITIONAL CONTROL INPUTS
NOTE: Not available on all models.
Fan Cycle Switch
The fan cycle switch is located behind the plastic front
assembly underneath the control knob (Figure 13). The fan
cycle switch sets the operational mode of the fan. In the
CONTINUOUS position, the fan will run continuously whenever the unit is in the heat or cool mode. In the CYCLE
position, the fan will cycle on and off with the compressor
when the unit is in the cool mode. This switch can only be
set by a servicer.
COMPRESSOR
The compressor is hermetically sealed, permanently lubricated and requires no additional oiling.
FRONT PANEL AND GRILLE
The front panel and grille can be cleaned with a mild soap
or detergent. Do not use hydrocarbon-based cleaners (e.g.
acetone, benzene, naphtha, gasoline, etc.) to clean the
front panel or grille. Use care when cleaning the control
area. Do not use an excessively wet cleaning cloth.

SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE
To achieve continuing top performance and high efficiency,
a regular cleaning/inspection schedule must be established. Maintaining this schedule can be accomplished by
either a local maintenance staff or an authorized servicer
and must follow the instructions described in this manual.
• If the unit is operated in a dusty climate, dust may
collect in the basepan and clog the condenser coil. It is
advisable to remove the unit from the sleeve and
thoroughly clean the basepan and condenser coil on a
periodic basis.
• If the unit is installed ocean side or in a corrosive
atmosphere, its life may be greatly reduced by the
corrosive environment. Under these conditions, the
unit should be removed from the sleeve and completely
cleaned once a year. At that time any scratches or
blisters on the painted surfaces should be sanded and
repainted.
Normal Operating Sounds and
Conditions
POPPING OR GURGLING SOUNDS
This sound is the refrigerant traveling through the lines.
This is a normal sound which may be heard for a few
seconds after the unit shuts off.
WATER TRICKLING SOUNDS
This sound is produced by the water as it is picked up and
run over the coils. This procedure improves the efficiency
of the unit and helps with water removal.
WATER DRIPPING
Water will collect in the basepan during high humidity days.
STARTING DELAY
You may notice a short delay in the startup if you try to
restart the unit too soon after turning it off or if you adjust the
thermostat right after the compressor has shut off. This
delay protects the compressor.
Obtaining Service
In the unlikely event this unit requires repair or servicing
beyond what is covered in this manual, contact an authorized service organization.
To obtain an authorized servicer, contact your sales representative or agency.
