Unit Features
This unit has many features which are different than those
found on conventional units. The servicer must be familiar
with these features in order to properly service the unit.
• Random restart delay - The SPVU employs a random
reset timer which delays unit operation up to 3 minutes
following initial power application. Electronic thermostats may also employ internal reset timers which may
further delay any changes which are made to the
operation of the unit.
• Automatic 3-minute compressor lockout - After the
compressor cycles off, it will not restart for three minutes. Additional delays may be experienced if using an
electronic digital thermostat.
• Low ambient compressor lockout - When the outdoor
ambient temperature is below 40 degrees F, the low
ambient compressor lockout switch will keep the compressor from energizing in either cooling or heat pump
mode.
• Direct drive, multi-speed blower - The proper speeds
have been preset at the factory for heating and cooling.
Refer to wiring diagram for recommended blower
speeds for specific models.
• Condensate Drain - This unit comes with a factory
installed drain tubing installed on the bottom of the unit.
This tubing drains from a trap at the bottom of the
condenser section.
The carrier is responsible for making prompt inspection of
damage and for a thorough investigation of each claim.
The distributor or manufacturer will not accept claims from
dealers for transportation damage.
Unit Accessories
This unit is designed for through-the-wall installation in new
or existing buildings. To complete the installation of this
unit, a wall sleeve, an architectural grille, thermostat and a

SLEEVE INSTALLATION
Refer to installation instructions packed with wall sleeve to
assemble and mount it in the wall. Ensure that the construction debris guard is removed and that the bottom of the wall
sleeve is pitched 1/2 bubble toward the outside of the
building. This angle forces any rain water that might enter
to drain to the outside. Also inspect the bottom of the wall
sleeve pan and drain. They should be clear of obstruction
and operational.
PRE-INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS
• Ensure that properly sized duct work is in place to mate
to the supply connection on the SPVU.
• Remove the two clips holding the unit to the shipping
pallet and remove unit from the shipping pallet.
• Before setting unit into closet, remove upper side
access panels and inspect the evaporator blower to
ensure that the wheel turns freely without rubbing on
the housing.
• Remove the styrofoam shipping block supporting the
blower assembly and replace the upper access panels.
• Remove front access panel and remove packing and
quick disconnect plug.
• Check all electrical connections and ensure the condenser fan turns freely. Note nameplate voltage,
amperage and fuse size for proper power supply.
• If ducted return air is required, bend out the intake air
flanges 90° away from the unit.
• A outdoor air vent panel is located on the lower left side
unit. Remove one screw and rotate the plate to expose
the desired amount of vent opening. Tighten the
remaining screw. Place the removed screw in the open
screw hole on the unit.

in extreme heat in the conditioned space causing
overheating or death of persons or animals.
Precautions must be taken to warn of or guard
against such an occurrence.
1. Before installing the intake air filter, insert the filter
bracket into the slots below the evaporator. Install the
filter clip into the slots above the evaporator.
2. Place a 20” x 24” x 1” filter into the filter bracket and tilt
outwards.
3. At the same time, tilt up the filter clip, place the filter
against the unit and then lower the filter clip. It should
hook over the filter.
All wiring must comply with local and national code requirements. Any alteration of the internal wiring will void UL
certification and manufacturer’s warranty.
Nameplate data indicates the operating voltage, phase,
ampacity, maximum over current protection and minimum
voltage. Units must never be installed or operated where
voltage exceeds the nameplate voltage by more than 10%.
Failure of the compressor as a result of operation with
improper voltage voids the compressor replacement warranty.
