with adequate space to ensure the air inlets and
outlets will not be blocked.
To remove the exhaust pipe, press slightly & pull away from the unit. The following
pictures indicate the removal of the exhaust pipe.
2.
If the exhaust tube is loose, twist the tube clockwise to tighten at the base.
Keep a minimum clearance of 40cm from walls or
other objects. Locate the unit to allow the exhaust
pipe and drain hose to reach a suitable window, as
shown.
Avoid sharp bends or kinks in the exhaust
pipe.
Use the adjustable window slider kit to
ensure the exhaust pipe and drain hose is
held in place (in the window) and to prevent
expelled hot air re-entering the room.
The appliance should not be used in damp areas such as a laundry or bathroom.
NOTICE
Do not place the unit where it will be in direct sunlight as it may overheat and turn off.

WATER DRAIN
When the air conditioner is used, excess water condensation may be produced that cannot be
removed via evaporation. This water is captured by an internal container. The unit
automatically drains this container periodically during operation, however if the water level
remains too high after this draining process the unit will stop working. For cooling only models,
the water drain warning indicator is displayed. For reverse cycle models, it will display the E4
error code. (DC12RC only)
When the water drain warning indicator (cooling only models) or error code E4 (reverse cycle
models) is displayed, the water collected in the internal container must be manually drained:
1.
Switch off and unplug the unit.
2.
Move the unit to a suitable place to drain the water. Consider placing a tray or suitable
container under the outlet pipe to catch the drained water.
3.
Remove the drain plug (11), refer to parts illustration.
4.
Slightly tilt the unit to the rear and drain the water.
5.
Replace the drain plug.
Make sure the drain plug is re-fitted to the drain outlet before use.
Extend the exhaust pipe and drain hose to the window before the unit is restarted.
