Operating
Instructions
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions
can result in
death, fire, or electrical shock.
Starting
your air conditioner
See Figures
1-6 for control panel variations. This manual
covers several different models. The model you have purchased may have all or some of the control panel variations
shown here, and they may not match the illustration exactly.
1. Set the Fan or System Control to the desired setting.
HI/HIGH COOL/
QUICK COMFORT ......................... for maximum cooling
MED/MEDIUM COOL ......................... for normal cooling
LO/LOW COOL ............................... for sleeping comfort
FAN ONLY (on some models) ............ .. for circulating air
without cooling
The Fan or System Control settings determine the
amount of cool air coming from the louvers.
NOTES:
Set the Exhaust Control (on some models) to
CLOSED or maximum cooling.
l Set the control switch to COOL (on some models) for
cooling.
2. Turn the Thermostat to a mid-setting. For maximum
cooling, turn the Thermostat clockwise. For less cooling,
turn the Thermostat counterclockwise. Experiment and
find the setting that suits you best.
l
NOTES:
l
l
4
If you turn the air conditioner off, wait at least 3 minutes
before turning it back on. This prevents the air conditioner from blowing a fuse or tripping a circuit breaker.
Do not try to operate your air conditioner when
the outside temperature is below 65°F (18%). The
inside evaporator coil may freeze up and the air
conditioner may not operate properly.
Using
the exhaust
(on some
models)
control
The Exhaust Control allows you to circulate room air or
exhaust stale/smoky air.
l To circulate
room air (Figure 7) set Exhaust Control to
CLOSED.
l To exhaust
stale/smoky air set Exhaust Control to
OPEN.
Exhaust
l
l
control
tips
For maximum cooling efficiency, set the Exhaust Control
to CLOSED.
The Exhaust Control will only function when the System
or Fan Control is turned to an “on” setting.
Using the ENERGY
settings
(on some
SAVER
models)
The ENERGY SAVER settings are located on the System
Control (QUICK COMFORT/HI, MED, and LO). See
Figures 8 and 9. When these settings are selected, the
fan will cycle on and off as the Thermostat Control turns
the compressor on and off. This saves the cost of electrical
energy that would be used to run the fan continuously.
It is normal for the fan to turn on and off in the ENERGY
SAVER settings. The amount of time the unit will be off
depends on the room temperature and Thermostat
Control setting.
Energy

tips
You can help save energy by reducing
conditioner’s
work load:

l
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
your air
Improve your home’s insulation. Seal doors and windows. Close fireplace flue.
Close blinds or drapes on the sunny side of your house.
Add awnings.
Check air filter often to make sure it is clean.
Do not block airflow with drapes or furniture.
Ventilate your attic. High temperatures in the attic add to
the cooling load of your air conditioner.
Try not to use heat-producing appliances during the
hottest part of the day.
Turn lights and appliances off when they are not needed.
Keep heat registers and cool-air returns closed.
Use exhaust/venting fans while cooking, bathing, and
doing laundry.
Changing
air direction
The louvers in the top of the front panel allow you to control
the direction of the cooled air. Use the tabs to direct the air
right, left, or straight ahead. See Figure 10.
r
Cleaning
Instructions
It is necessary to clean your air filter and front panel properly
for top performance and cleaner air.
Cleaning
the front
panel
1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Remove the front panel from the cabinet for easy cleaning. Press down on the top of the front panel and tilt
forward. Lift the front panel up and away from the bottom
spring clips. See Figure 11.
3. Remove the air filter and clean it separately if needed.
(See “Cleaning the air filter” below.)
NOTE: On some models with a slide-out air filter, you can
remove the air filter without removing the front panel.
4. Using a soft cloth, clean the front panel with warm water
and a mild soap or detergent. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Wipe the control panel with a soft, dry cloth.
5. Replace the front panel. Set the bottom of the panel on
the cabinet spring clips. Push down and forward into the
cabinet to secure upper tabs.
6. Plug in the power cord.
Cleaning
the air filter
Your air conditioner’s air filter is removable for easy cleaning. A clean filter helps remove dust, lint, and other particles
from the air and is important for best cooling and operating
efficiencv. Check the filter everv 2 weeks to see if it needs
cleaning: Do not operate the ai; conditioner without the filter
in place.
For models with built-in filters (see figure 12):
1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Remove the front panel from the cabinet. (See “Cleaning
the front panel” above.)
3. Remove the elastic band holding the air filter in place.
Then remove the air filter.
4. Wash the air filter with warm water and mild detergent.
Do not wash the air filter in the dishwasher or use any
chemical cleaners. Air dry thoroughly before
replacing
to ensure
maximum
efficiency.
5. Replace the filter, elastic band, and front panel.
6. Plug in the power cord.
For models with slide-out
filters
(see figure
13):
4. Slide out the air filter up and out the top of the front panel.
2. Clean the filter using a vacuum cleaner attachment or
wash it in warm water and a mild detergent. Do not wash
the air filter in the dishwasher or use any chemical
cleaners. Air dry thoroughly before replacing to
ensure
maximum
efficiency.
3. Slide the air filter back down in the opening in the top of
the front panel.

tips
Your air filter should be replaced once a year.
For information on ordering a new filter, see page 11.
Performina
Annual
Maintenanvce
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
air conditioner.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Electrical
Shock Hazard
Unplug before doing any maintenance.
Do not drink water collected by the air conditioner.
Failure to follow these instructions
can result in
death, electrical shock, or sickness.
Your air conditioner needs annual maintenance to help
ensure steady, top performance throughout the year. Call
your local authorized dealer to schedule annual maintenance. The expense of this service is the consumer’s
responsibility.
068
If you are familiar with electrical appliances, you can do
the maintenance yourself. If you choose to do so, follow
these steps:
NOTE: Do not lift, push, or pull any gray Styrofoam from
inside the air conditioner.
1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Remove the air conditioner from the window.
continued
on next page
3. Remove the front panel. (See “Cleaning the front
panel” on page 6.)
4. Remove the side curtains (on some models). Slide
curtains out to fullest width. From the back side,
remove the Phillips-head screws which attach the
curtain to the cabinet (A). See Figure 14.
5. Remove slotted-hex head screws (B) holding top
channel. See Figure 14.
6. Remove slotted-hex head screws (C) on sides of
cabinet. See Figure 14.
7. Holding the cabinet on both sides, carefully lift cabinet
off base. Watch out for the sharp metal fins on the
front and rear coils.
8. Wrap the fan motor (E), capacitor terminals (F),
electrical control panel (I), and compressor terminals (J),
in plastic film and make sure no water or other liquid
gets inside any of these parts. It could damage the
insulation and cause serious mechanical problems.
See Figure 15.
9. Carefully clean and hose out the base (K), condenser
coil (D), evaporator coil (G), and condensate pan (H).
Clean at least once a year or more often if the condenser and evaporator coils and pan collect dirt, sand,
leaves, insects, or algae. Also, clean if you detect an
odor coming from the air conditioner. SW Figure 15.
10. Remove the plastic film from the motor and electrical
parts.
11. Replace the cabinet on the air conditioner and reattach
the front panel, top channel, and side curtains. Tighten
all screws.
12. Plug in the power cord.
NOTE: It is a good idea to wait 24 hours before starting
the air conditioner again. This allows time for all areas
to dry out.
Repairing
paint
damage
Check once or twice a year for paint damage. This may
occur, especially in salty environments (near oceans, etc.)
or where rust is a problem. If needed, touch up with a good
grade enamel paint.
NOTE: To reduce paint damage during the winter, install
a heavy-duty cover on your air conditioner’s cabinet. For
information on ordering a heavy-duty cover see page 11.
Normal
operating
sounds
When your air conditioner is operating normally, you may
hear such sounds as:
l A “pinging” sound caused from water droplets hitting the
condenser. This is an energy efficient design whereby
the water cools the condenser.
l Air movement from the fan.
l Clicks from the thermostat cycling on and off.
l Vibrations or noise due to poor wall or window
construction.
l A high pitched hum or pulsating noise caused by the
modern high efficiency compressor cycling on and off.

The use of more efficient components may cause the air conditioner to run longer than
an older model, but the total energy consumption will be less. Newer air conditioners do not
emit the “blast” of cold air you may be accustomed to from older units, but this IS NOT an
indication of lesser cooling capacity or efficiency. Refer to the efficiency rating (EER) and
capacity rating (in BTUs/hr.) marked on the air conditioner.
The unit is in a
