SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
CAREFULLY READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING
STOP
General Information
A damaged power cord must be replaced with a new power cord
obtained from the manufacturer and not repaired. Contact
ClimateRight® for repair and replacement details.
• Never perform any maintenance procedures until the electrical power to the unit is
turned off and unplugged.
• Never unplug the unit by pulling on the power cord. Always grip
plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle.
• Never remove any panel from the unit while it is operating.
• Connect to a properly grounded 120V outlet. Do not remove the
ground prong. The power outlet must be easily accessible and
located within the length of the power cord supplied with the unit.
• For safety purposes, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize
the risk of fire, electric shock or personal injury.
• Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner’s
Manual.
• This air conditioner must be properly installed in accordance with the Installation
Instructions before it is used.
• A qualified individual must perform any servicing beyond cleaning. Failure to
comply may void the warranty.
• DO NOT store or use combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors or
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
• This product contains refrigerants. As required by federal law, refrigerants must
be removed prior to disposing of this product. To dispose of this product, contact

• Do not use the unit if the power cord is frayed, cracked or
otherwise damaged.
• This unit is designed for outdoor use. When plugging the unit
into an outdoor outlet, the outlet must be a GFCI outlet and have a
weatherproof while-in-use receptacle cover.
• The unit should be plugged into its own circuit. If other devices are
plugged into the same circuit, the fuse or breaker may trip due to
excessive amperage draw.
• Internal parts of the unit may get hot such as the condenser,
compressor and copper piping. Do not remove the outer cover and
touch these parts.
• There are moving parts inside the unit. Do not put any body part
inside of the unit.
Use of Extension Cords
Use of an extension cord is not recommended. Using an
extension cord could prevent the unit from operating normally and
could potentially pose a fire and safety risk. It is recommended that
unit is located near a 3-prong 120V GFCI outlet. If one is not near, a
qualified electrician should install one.

now set.
Select the fan speed by using FAN button.
During the AUTO model, the unit operates at heating mode when the room
temperature is below 68 oF (20 oC). It operates at dehumidifying mode when
the room temperature is between 68 oF (20 oC) and 80oF (27 oC). It operates
at cooling mode when the room temperature is above 80oF (27 oC).

setting the temperature at the lowest and the fan speed at the highest.
Reducing the length of the exhaust duct and insulating the exhaust duct
and keeping direct sunlight to a minimum will also improve the cooling
efficiency.
NOTE: If the air conditioner is off and is then turned on while set to a
Cool setting or if turned from a fan setting to a Cool setting, it may take

MAINTENANCE
The ClimateRight® climate control unit is a low maintenance product and
does not require much attention if used in normal environments. However, two
components will require periodic cleaning to ensure maximum heating and
cooling efficiency.
Failure to property care for the ClimateRight® unit as mentioned above will
result in a voided Warranty.
FILTERS
The removable mesh filter installed at the air intake will accumulate debris over time.
Remove and clean the filter monthly. If the unit is located in an area with lots of dirt,
debris and pet fur, check and clean the filter weekly.

Check that the air
conditioner plug is

the outlet.
The fuse is blown or
the circuit breaker
has been tripped.
Check the house fuse/
circuit breaker box and
replace the fuse or reset
the breaker.
Power failure.
The unit will automatically
re-start in the settings last
used after the power is
restored.
CONDENSER
The condenser is located on the side of the unit with the open grid. If the cooling
capacity of the unit becomes degraded, the condenser fins may be dirty. Debris on
the fins will not allow the refrigerant to cool properly.
Use a garden hose with a spray nozzle set on a gentle setting to rinse away dirt and
debris.
EVAPORATOR
If the unit is installed in a location with lots of dirt, debris and pet fur, the air filter may
not screen all contaminants from the air. If the evaporator becomes heavily soiled
with debris, it may be necessary to clean the evaporator.
To clean the evaporator, carefully remove the sheet metal surrounding the top and
sides of the unit. Use a soft bristle brush, such as a paintbrush to gently brush away
the debris from the evaporator fins. DO NOT use a metal wire brush as this will
damage the fins and could puncture the refrigerant tubes.
There is a protective time
delay (approximately 3
minutes) to prevent
tripping of the
compressor overload. For
this reason, the unit may
not start normal cooling
for 3 minutes after it is
turned back on.
Water builds up in
unit.
