permit
(consult
your electrical

a
temporary
adapter may be plugged into the
existing 2-prong wall receptacle to mate with the
3-prong power supply cord. See Figure 2. THIS,
HOWEVER,
IS NOT RECOMMENDED.
If this is done, you must connect the grounded
eyelet on the adapter to the wall receptacle
cover plate screw and from this same screw, you
must connect a separate copper ground wire
(#14 minimum) to a grounded cold water pipe.*

you want to cool. Then choose a wall that
will allow the air-conditioned

pans collect dirt, sand, leaves, insects or algae.
Also, clean if you detect an odor from the
air conditioner.
