Please read through this chart before calling for service. It could save you the cost of a service call. PROBLEM CHECK THE FOLLOWING Air conditioner won’t run Is the unit plugged into a live circuit with proper voltage? Has the time-delay fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped? Is the System Control set to UNIT OFF? Is the Thermostat Control set correctly? Has the local power failed? Unit blows fuses or trips circuit breaker Are time-delay fuses being used? Is an extension cord being used? Do not use an extension cord with this or any other appliance. Are you waiting three minutes before trying to restart the unit? Unit turns on and off OR does not cool the room Is the air filter clean? Are the coils clean (both inside evaporator and outside condenser)? Is there excessive moisture or heat in the room (open container cooking, showers, etc.)? Is the System Control set too low? Is the Thermostat Control set too low? Normal operating sounds When your air conditioner operates normally, you will hear sounds such as: l Pinging or clicking as water droplets hit the condenser. Water droplets help cool the condenser. l Air movement from the fan, especially on HI COOL setting. l Clicks from the cooling cycle. Sounds may also be caused by house construction - such as vibration of the unit due to wall construction or an unsteady window mounting area. 10 WITH QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS Requesting Assistance Service - or Before calling for assistance or service, please check “Troubleshooting” on page 10.
