hazardous than when the unit is in operation.
Remember, it is your responsibility to install the product safely and to know it well enough to be able to instruct a
customer in its safe use.
Safety is a matter of common sense...a matter of thinking before acting. Most dealers have a list of specific good
safety practices...follow them.
The precautions listed in this Installation Manual are intended as supplemental to existing practices. However, if
there is a direct conflict between existing practices and the content of this manual, the precautions listed here take
precedence.

prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping.
NOTE: The fan will continue to run during this time.
• The control will maintain any set temperature between 60°F
and 90°F (cooling), 55°F and 80°F (heating).
• The control is capable of displaying temperature in degrees
(Fahrenheit) or degrees (Celsius). To convert from one to the
other, press and hold the UP and DOWN Temperature Selection Pads at the same time for 3 seconds.

NORMAL OPERATING SOUNDS AND
CONDITIONS
OBTAINING SERVICE
In the unlikely event this unit requires repair or servicing beyond
what is covered in this manual, contact an authorized service
organization.
POPPING OR GURGLING SOUNDS
This sound is the refrigerant traveling through the lines. This is a
normal sound which may be heard for a few seconds after the unit
shuts off.
To obtain an authorized servicer, contact your sales representative or agency.
WATER TRICKLING SOUNDS
This sound is produced by the water as it is picked up and run
over the coils. This procedure improves the efficiency of the unit
and helps with water removal.
WATER DRIPPING
Water will collect in the basepan during high humidity days.
STARTING DELAY
You may notice a short delay in the startup if you try to restart the
unit too soon after turning it off or if you adjust the thermostat right
after the compressor has shut off. This delay protects the compressor.
