Or your state board of electricity.
1.7 LCDI PLUG TECHNOLOGY (US ONLY)
A Leakage-Current Detect and Interrupt (LCDI) is a device that senses leakage current flowing between or
fom the power conductors in an appliance cord and interrupts the circuit as a predetermined level of leakage
current. Since an LCDI specifically can detect a current leakage flowing to ground, it provides ground fault
protection from arcing and other problems, which arise due to leakage between conductors.
LCDIs are covered under the UL 1699 standard for ARC Fault Current Interrupts, which was first published in
June of 2002. LCDI devices have been mandated by the National Electric Code and Underwritten Laboratories
for the cordsets on room air conditioners beginning in August 2004. Other classes of appliances will require
LCDI protection in the near future.
TESTING
1. Press test button, unit should trip.
2. Press reset button for use.
NOTE: DO NOT USE IF ABOVE TEST FAILS.
In the event this device trips, the cause of the malfunction is to be corrected before use of the device.
CAUTION
The conductors inside this cord are surrounded by shields, which monitor leakage current. THESE SHIELDS ARE
NOT GROUNDED. Periodically examine the cord for any damage. DO NOT USE this product in the event the
shields become exposed.
WARNING
This product contains chemicals, including lead, known to the State of California to cause cancer, and birth
defects or other reproductive harm.
Wash hands after handling.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
4.1 PORTABLE AIR CONDITIONER INSTALLATION
• Find a proper place for the portable air conditioner.
Leave at least 20” (50.8cm) space around the unit (Fig. 8).
When you use the unit as an air conditioner or a
dehumidifier, the hot air must be exhausted out of
the room to complete the air exchange of the
condenser. When the unit is operating on fan, no
outdoor air exchange takes place. You do not need
to hookup the window kits and hot air exhaust
ducts when you use the unit as a fan.
Figure 8
4.2 INSTALLING THE DUCTS IN A WINDOW/SLIDING DOOR
Figure 9
A) Pull out both ends of the hot air exhaust ducts for approximately 6”/15.24cm.
B) Screw the exhaust ducts clockwise with one end to the terminal end of the back of the unit and
the other end to the window kit adapter.
C) Mount the terminal end of the exhaust duct to the back of the unit.
D) Open window or sliding door for approximately 5”/12.7cm.
E) Adjust the length of the window kit to the same length of the window or the sliding door. Use
all of the panels if necessary. Cut the window piece as needed to fit the length of your window
or sliding door. Make sure that the hole on the main piece is not covered by other pieces.
F) Place the window kit in the window or sliding door. Close the window or door as far as it goes.
G) Adjust the length of exhaust duct and affix the window kit adapter onto the holes on the
window kit.
NOTE: When using the window kit on a window or sliding door it will cause the window or sliding
door to not be properly closed and/or locked. Additional security measurements should
be taken.

SECTION 4
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
4.3 INSTALLING THE DUCTS IN THE WALL
CAUTION
MANUFACTURER’S RECOMMENDATION.
BEFORE UNDERTAKING ANY INSTALLATION OF DUCTS INTO WALL, WE
RECOMMEND THAT YOU CONSULT A KNOWLEDGABLE PROFESSIONAL.
A) You do not need to use window kit adapter. Mount one end of the exhaust duct into a hole
of 5.6”/14.22cm in diameter in the wall; attach the other end to the back of the unit (same
as above).
B) Use the exhaust outlet wall covers to cover the holes in the wall when the unit is not in use.
NOTE:
Mounting the exhaust pipe
•
The supplied exhaust hose can extend from 5.75”
to 63” / 40cm to 160cm for mounting. It is
recommended that you use the shortest possible
length of hose.
•
Take care to prevent any kind of bend in the
middle of the exhaust hose, as this will trap hot
exhaust air, which will radiate back into the
room and affect the cooling function of the unit
(Fig. 10).
WARNING
Figure 10
The length of the exhaust pipe is specially designed
according to the specification of this product. Do not
replace or extend it with your own hose as this could
cause the unit to malfunction (Fig. 11).

5.4 WATER FULL INDICATION AND DRAINING
WATER FULL INDICATION:
Under normal temperatures, water will evaporate without the need to drain it from the unit.
The WATER FULL indicator light will turn on during days of extreme humidity, when in Cooling Mode
or Soft-Dry Mode. When the WATER FULL indicator light turns on, it means that the water reservoir is
full. The compressor will stop working, but both of the two fan motors will continue working. The unit
will drain excess water once a Drain Hose or Garden Hose is connected to it. When the WATER FULL
indicator light disappears, the compressor will start to work again.
DRAINING:
Only in extreme humidity
1) To add a Drain Hose or Garden Hose you must first stop the unit by turning it OFF. You must then
unscrew the Drain Cap on the Pump Drain before inserting the white Drain Hose (5’3”/1.61m)
provided with your unit. (Attention: there may be some water behind the Drain Cap. Have a bowl
or receptacle ready to catch any runoff).
After connecting the Drain Hose to the inner spout (Fig.15) of the Pump Drain, ensure that the
other end is placed in a bucket or receptacle for gathering the excess water. Check the water level
in the receptacle to avoid any possibilities of leaking.
Instead of the Drain Hose provided with your unit, you may also use a Garden Hose (in cases where
you require a distance longer than that provided by the Drain Hose). In this case screw the female
end of a Garden Hose to the outer threaded spout of the Pump Drain (Fig.16). After connecting the
Garden Hose, place the outer end outside of the house or in a convenient area where the excess
water can be safely expelled.
2) Now, turn the unit ON and back to its previous setting (either COOLING or SOFT-DRY mode). The
Pump Drain will begin to pump water out of the unit. (If using a water bucket, please check the
expelled water level to ensure that it does not over flow.) Once the WATER FULL light indicator
turns off … the DRAIN cycle is complete. At this point, turn OFF the unit, remove the Drain Hose or
Garden Hose and then turn the unit back ON and to its previous setting (COOLING or SOFT-DRY
mode).
