INSTALLING YOUR AIR CONDITIONER
Installing in a casement window
Since styles and sizes of casement windows
vary widely, it is advisable to have the air
conditioner installed by someone skilled in
this type of installation. Your appliance
dealer can recommend or supply qualified
people to install your air conditioner.
1. Closed or stationary windows: Install
unit in stationary sash to avoid crank
handles or window latches. If unit is to be
installed in or next to a movable sash, it
may be necessary to remove catch,
handle, or both. Remove crank handle
and secure window in closed position.
Remove glass panes and horizontal
mountings to a height sufficient to
mount unit.
2. Open window frame: Remove crank
mechanism and catch handles. Fold the
window sash back against the exterior
wall of the building and secure, or
remove completely where possible.
Do not block air circulation to the
outside louvers.
3. A filler panel will be required at the side of
the air conditioner when installed in windows having width greater than 151⁄2".
Filler panel should be made from 3⁄4" thick
wood securely anchored to one side of
the opening so that a 151⁄2" wide opening
is provided. The filler panel should run the
full length of the window. Paint to suit.
4. Install the air conditioner in the same
manner as described for sliding
windows.(See “Installing in a sliding
window” on page 9.)
Installing in a wood sliding or wood
casement window
1. For a wood casement window, it is
necessary to construct a frame, using at
least 1" thick wood with a 151⁄2" wide
opening.
2. Paint the frame and fasten it securely,
sealing it into the window opening.

CARING FOR YOUR AIR CONDITIONER
Annual maintenance
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Disconnect power before doing any
maintenance.
Do not drink water collected by the air
conditioner.
Failure to follow these instructions
can result in death, electrical shock,
or sickness.
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and
install air conditioner.
Failure to do so can result in back or
other injury.
Your air conditioner needs annual
maintenance to help ensure steady, top
performance throughout the year.
Call the service company recommended
by your dealer to:
• Inspect and clean the coils and condensate water passages.
• Check fan and fan motor.
The compressor is sealed and needs no
oiling. The expense of an annual inspection
is the customer’s responsibility.
OR
If you are familiar with electrical appliances,
you can do the cleaning and maintenance
yourself. If you choose to do so, follow these
steps:
1. Unplug air conditioner or disconnect
power.
2. Remove the air conditioner from the
window channel frame and off of the
support platform.
3. Remove the front panel. (See page 15.)
4. Remove the screws from the top and
sides of the cabinet, and then remove the
cabinet.
5. Wrap the motor, electrical control box,
and compressor terminal box in plastic
film to make sure no water or other liquid
gets inside. Water or other liquids could
damage the insulation and cause serious
mechanical problems.
6. Clean and hose out the base, coils, and
condensate pan. Clean at least once a
year, or more often if the condenser coils
and pan collect dirt, sand, leaves, insects,
or algae. Also, clean if you detect an odor
coming from the air conditioner. Do not
use the water collected in the air conditioner for drinking purposes. It is not
sanitary.
7. Remove the plastic film from the motor
and electrical parts.
8. Reattach the cabinet with the screws.
Replace the front panel, and reinstall the
air conditioner.
9. Plug in air conditioner or reconnect
power.
NOTE: It is a good idea to wait 24 hours
before starting the air conditioner again. This
allows time for all areas to dry out. The
water from rainfall or from normal operation
does not harm these components.
17
CARING FOR YOUR AIR CONDITIONER
Understanding normal operating sounds
When your air conditioner is operating
normally, you will hear sounds such as:
• Droplets of water hitting the condenser,
causing a “pinging” or “clicking” sound.
Water droplets help to cool the condenser.
• Air movement from the fan, especially on
high fan speed settings.
• Clicks from the thermostat cycle.
Sounds also may be caused by house
construction – such as vibration of the unit
due to wall construction or unsteady window
mounting area.
Saving energy
You can help save energy by following the
tips below.
• Improve your home’s insulation. Seal all
doors and windows. Close the
fireplace flue.
• Close all blinds and drapes on sunny sides
of the house. Add window awnings.
• Keep the air filter clean.
• Do not block the airflow with drapes or
furniture.
• Ventilate the attic. High temperatures in
the attic add to the air conditioner’s
cooling load.
• Try not to use heat-producing appliances
during the hottest part of the day.
• Turn off lights and appliances when they
are not needed.
• Keep heat registers and cool-air
returns closed.
• Use exhaust venting fans when cooking,
doing laundry, or bathing.
