obtained.
If the moulded mains plug is unsuitable for the socket outlet in your home or is removed for any other
reason, then the fuse should be removed and the cut off plug disposed of safely to prevent the hazard
of electric shock.
There is a danger of electric shock if the cut off plug is inserted into any 13 amp socket outlet.

Important
The flexible exhaust hose can be extended from 500 to 1500 mm for mounting. This length
has been designed especially according to the specifications of the air conditioner. Do not
use an extension or exchange for a different hose as that may lead to malfunctioning. The
exhaust air must flow freely, any blockage can lead to overheating of the air conditioner.
Take care to prevent any sharp bow or bend in the exhaust.

Dehumification
If the unit will be used mainly as a dehumidifier just let the warm air return in the room.
Continuous drainage is then necessary and more efficient.
For continuous drainage:
• Switch off the unit and remove the plug from the mains.
• Remove the water stopper and rubber plug.
• Connect a drain tube (ø 20 mm inner dimension) onto the water outlet and extend with
extra water tube if needed.
• Place the other end in a normal drain. Make sure that the tube is free from twists and
bends. The tube must decline over its entire length.
AIR FILTER
This air conditioner can be equipped with a 3-layer filter to clean the circulated room air.
a. Screen filter; to remove bigger dust particles.
b. All models: active carbon filter; to remove odours.
c. 3M Filtrete™ filter; to remove unhealthy particles from the air such as pollen, bacteria,
animal dander and dust. Selected models have the 3M Filtrete™ filter as standard.
However, if you require to add this to your model, or wish to purchase a replacement, call
Amcor for details.
NOTE! The active carbon filter and the 3M Filtrete™ filter are delivered in a plastic packaging. Don’t
forget to install these filters. These filters take away unhealthy particles out of the room environment.
The filter frame on the rear of the unit can be opened. The active carbon filter and 3M
Filtrete™ filter can be installed or removed. The screen filter is part of the filter frame (see
illustration).
a. The screen filter has to be cleaned regularly with a vacuum cleaner to avoid blocking of
the air flow.
b. The positive/negative electrostatically charged 3M Filtrete™ filter is recommended to be
changed every 3 months. Unusual dirt, construction work, pets, the presence of smoke
and running the air conditioning unit continuously can shorten the life time of the 3M
Filtrete™ filter.
c. The active carbon filter can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner when dusty but has to be
changed at the same time as the 3M Filtrete™ filter.
