Use this air conditioner only as described in this instruction manual.
•This appliance is fitted with a special safety device. When the compressor switches off or when the
appliance is first turned on, this device prevents the compressor from switching on again for at least
three minutes.
•This air conditioner has been designed and manufactured to operate in a domestic situation only
and should not be used for other purposes.
• The appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical,
sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
Children should be supervised to ensure they don’t play with the appliance.
• Never use the air conditioner in damp rooms (eg bathrooms and laundries).
• If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced with a new cord installed by a suitably qualified

• Do not operate or stop the appliance by inserting or pulling out the power plug. Use the on/off
switch on the air conditioner control panel or the remote control.
• Do not connect to multiple power outlets on extension leads.
• Do not rest hot or heavy objects on the appliance.
• Always unplug the unit from the power outlet before cleaning or maintenance operations, for
example filter cleaning.

INTRODUCTION
This portable air conditioner can alter the room temperature and humidity. It has multiple functions of cooling dehumidifying
(drying) and fan ventilation, and can be moved from room to room and transported from building to building easily. In addition,
the desired humidity level can be set between 35-85%.
The air conditioner can maintain set room indoor air temperatures between 17°C and 30°C. The set room temperature is
displayed on the remote control and in the control panel on the unit. This does not mean that the air conditioner will necessarily
reduce the actual room temperature to the set room temperature. This appliance operates at half the noise levels of most other
portable air conditioners and is ideal for bedrooms.
GUIDELINES FOR OPTIMISING COOLING EFFECTIVENESS
This POLOCOOL “Whisper” portable refrigerated air conditioner model PQ10 has a maximum cooling capacity of
10,000 BTU or 2.9kW.
This is sufficient to cool rooms with a floor area of between 5 and 18 square metres
• Do not place the air conditioner or plastic window slider in direct sunlight. Close all curtains in the room being cooled.
•
For maximum cooling (COOLING MODE), set the temperature at 18°C and the fan at HIGH. After approximately
3 minutes, the compressor will turn on and cooled air will come out of the front air outlet. Warm air will also come out of
the rear outlet and into the exhaust hose.
• In COOLING MODE the air conditioner will not cool unless the set temperature is below the existing room temperature.
•In COOLING MODE once the existing room temperature reaches the set temperature, the fan continues operating and
the compressor switches on and off to maintain the set temperature within the room.
•For maximum cooling output keep the exhaust hose as short and as straight as possible. Minimise bends which can
reduce the maximum cooling capacity of the air conditioner. Elevate the air conditioner if necessary.
• Make sure the air intake and outlet grills are unobstructed.
• Clean the filters at least once every two weeks.

ASSEMBLY OF EXHAUST HOSE, HOSE INLET, HOSE OUTLET AND WINDOW SLIDER
(a)Press one end of the exhaust hose into the hose outlet which automatically clamps by the three plastic buckles. Lift
buckles to remove.
(b)Press the other end of the exhaust hose into the hose inlet which automatically clamps by the three plastic buckles.
Lift buckles to remove.
(c)Install the hose outlet into the window slider by lining up the 4 plastic buckles with the cutouts in the window slider
Ensure the 4 plastic buckles are pushed all the way into the window slider to ensure a firm fit. Press buckles to
remove from window slider.
(d)Install the hose inlet into the appliance by pushing into the lower groove of the air outlet
on the unit while the hook on the hose inlet is aligned with the hole seat of the air outlet.
Lift hose inlet upwards to remove. See sketches on right.
(e)When mounting try and keep the air exhaust hose horizontal and do not extend its length
by attaching it to another hose as this reduces the cooling capacity of the appliance.
(f)Place the hose outlet to the nearest window. The length of the air exhaust hose is between
330mm-1450mm approx. Use the minium length when working and keep it as straight as
possible.

SELF-DIAGNOSIS
LED display
Shows the set temperature in °C or °F and the Auto-timer settings and the humidity settings(only for modles with humidity sensor).
While on DRY and FAN modes, it shows the room temperature. Shows Error codes and protection code:
E1 - Room temperature sensor error.
E2 - Evaporator temperature sensor error.
E3 - Condenser temperature sensor error (on some models).
E4 - Display panel communication error.
E7 - Zero-crossing malfunction.
P1 - Bottom tray is full--Connect the drain hose and drain the collected water away. If protection repeats, call for service.
Note: When one of the above malfunctions occurs, turn off the unit, and check for any obstructions. Restart the unit, if the malfunction is
still present, turn off the unit and unplug the power cord. Contact POLO on 1800 087 840.
