Air Filter(s) — Air filter(s) should be checked at least
every 3 or 4 weeks and changed or cleaned when necessary.
Table 1 indicates the correct filter size for your unit. See Fig. 4
for filter access door location.
To replace or inspect filters:
1. Lift up and remove filter access panel.
2. While holding filter, tilt upper filter rack.
3. Remove filters by pulling up and out toward you from
the track.
4. Inspect or replace filters.
5. Return filters to filter track. Note direction of airflow arrows on filter frame.
6. Replace filter access panel.
If you have difficulty in locating your air filter, or if you
have questions concerning proper filter maintenance, contact your dealer for instructions. When replacing your unit
filters, always use the same size and type of filter that was
originally supplied by the installer.
Units with outdoor air capability have a cleanable filter
for the outdoor air. This filter should be checked annually
and cleaned as necessary with steam or hot water and a mild
detergent. Do not use throwaway filters in place of cleanable
filters.
Heat Exchanger — To ensure dependable and efficient
heating operation, the heat exchanger should be checked by
a qualified maintenance person before each heating season,
and cleaned when necessary. This checkout should not be
attempted by anyone not having the required expertise and
equipment to do the job properly. Checking and/or cleaning
the heat exchanger involves removing the gas controls assembly and the flue collector box cover and, when completed, reinstalling the gas controls assembly for proper operation. Also, the flue collector box cover must be replaced
correctly so that a proper seal is maintained. Contact your
dealer for the required periodic maintenance.
Fans, Belts and Fan Motor — Periodically check the
condition of the fan wheels and housings, belt tension and
fan motor shaft bearings. No lubrication of condenser or evaporator fan bearings or motors is required or recommended.
Evaporator and Condenser Coils — Cleaning of
the coils should be done by qualified service personnel. Contact
your dealer for the required annual maintenance.
Condensate Drain — The drain pan and condensate
drain line should be checked and cleaned at the same time
the cooling coils are checked by your dealer.
Compressor — All compressors are factory supplied with
a normal charge of the correct type refrigeration-grade oil in
them and should not require additional oil.
Condenser Fan
Never operate your unit without filters in place. Failure
to heed this warning may result in damage to the blower
motor and/or compressor. An accumulation of dust and
lint on internal parts of your unit can cause loss of efficiency and, in some cases, fire.
Do not poke sticks, screwdrivers, or any other
object into revolving fan blades. Severe bodily injury
may result.
The fan must be kept free of all obstructions to ensure
proper cooling. Contact your dealer for any required service.

BEFORE YOU CALL FOR SERVICE,
CHECK FOR PROBLEMS THAT CAN BE
EASILY SOLVED
If insufficient heating or cooling is suspected:
(
) Check for sufficient airflow. Check the air filter for
dirt. Check for blocked return- or supply-air grilles. Be sure
they are open and unobstructed. If these checks do not reveal the cause, call your servicing dealer.
If your unit is not operating at all, check the following list
for easy solutions:
(
) Check to be sure that your thermostat temperature
selector is set above the indoor temperature during the heating season, or below the indoor temperature during the cooling season. Be sure the SYSTEM switch in the proper HEAT,
COOL or AUTO. position and not in the OFF position.
(
) Is the electrical supply switch ON? Are any fuses blown,
or has the circuit breaker tripped?
(
) During the heating season, check the external manual
shutoff valve. Is this lever parallel with the pipe, indicating
that the valve is open? Or is the lever at a right angle, indicating that the valve is closed? If closed, has the gas been
shut off for safety reasons? Otherwise, you may open the
valve and follow the start-up procedures listed in this manual.
NOTE: Before proceeding with the next check, turn OFF
the electrical power supply to the unit. Remove the control
access door.
