Room Heat Pumps
Heat pumps work by moving heat instead of creating it. In the
summer, the cool indoor coil absorbs heat from your room
and moves it outdoors, providing cooling. In the winter, heat
pumps reverse this operation. By lowering the temperature
of the outdoor coil below the outdoor temperature, the heat
pump absorbs the heat from outdoors and moves it inside
your house. This heat transferring process is very efficient.
For example, at 45°F outdoor temperature, a heat pump can
provide 2 ½ watts of heat for every watt of electricity it
consumes.
wall receptacle is encountered, the customer is required to
contact a qualified electrician and have the two-prong wall
receptacle replaced with a properly grounded three-prong
wall receptacle in accordance with the National Electrical
Code.
As outdoor temperatures drop, the heating capacity and
efficiency of the heat pump declines. At temperatures below
45°F, it is likely that ice will form on the outdoor coil. Heat
pump units are designed to operate as a heat pump above
approximately 40°F. Below 40°F, these units switch automatically from reverse cycle heat pump to auxiliary electric
heating. No defrost is required. There is no minimum
operating temperature.
Room air conditioners are designed to operate according to
requirements on the nameplate and as shown in Table 1.
Fuse or circuit breaker ratings must be according to the fuse
instruction label and as shown in Table 1. Do not plug models
marked “Use on Single Outlet Circuit Only” into a circuit with
another appliance or light fixture.
Receptacle Wiring
Receptacle wiring must be of adequate size for unit. Refer
to unit identification plate for exact power requirements.
Minimum size of wiring, based on power requirements, is:
Units up to 20 amps:
20–30 amp units:
Unit with a window mounting kit
These models are designed for mounting though an
opening in a wall. These units can be adapted to
window installation by using the optional window mounting kit supplied with your unit.
Unit without a window mounting kit
No window mounting kit is supplied with the unit.
These models are designed for mounting through an
opening in a wall. These units can be adapted to
window installation by purchasing an optional window
mounting kit. Consult your dealer to choose the kit that
is appropriate for your model and installation.
Normal Care and Maintenance
WARNING
12 gauge
10 gauge
Use copper wire only. Consumer’s responsibility is to provide
proper and adequate receptacle wiring that conforms to all
applicable codes. All wiring should be installed by qualified
electrician.
LCDI or AFCI Power Cords
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and the National Electric
Code (NEC) now require power cords that sense current
leakage and can open the electrical circuit to the unit. In the
event, the unit does not operate, check the reset button
located on or near the head of the power cord as part of the
normal troubleshooting procedure.
CAUTION
Installing an air conditioner through a wall requires
extensive carpentry and/or masonry experience.
Thru-wall installations performed by inexperienced
or unqualified individuals can result in costly
damage to home or result in equipment malfunction
that could cause property damage, personal injury
or death.
Installation
Complete step-by-step installation instructions are furnished
with your unit. These instructions will be found on a separate
page included with this manual or in the mounting kit
assembly. Follow these instructions carefully. Keep these
instructions with this manual for future reference. Your unit
will be one of the following designs:
3
Annual Inspection
It is suggested that your unit be inspected by your dealer or
servicer once a year. It is advisable to have the outer case
removed and the unit thoroughly cleaned.
Optional Charcoal Air Filter Installation
Remove charcoal air filter from plastic bag. Insert three tabs
on right side of filter into three slots on filter frame. Carefully
bow middle of filter until two tabs on filter can be inserted into
two slots on filter frame. Relax bow.
Note: The life of your unit may be greatly reduced if you live
in a salt air or other corrosive type environment. Under these
conditions, the unit should be removed from its case and
completely cleaned at least once a year. At that time any
scratches or blisters on the painted surfaces should be
sanded and repainted. Placing an algaecide tablet in the
outdoor side of the unit’s basepan is suggested in humid
areas where algae formation is common. We recommend the
following algaecide cleaners: PanGuard® by Control Released
Technologies, Inc. and CDC Anti-Clog® by Virginia KMP.
Reinstall air filter by reversing removal procedure.
Front Grille and Filter Removal
The front contains an air filter that can be removed. To clean
the filter, use the following method for filter removal.
Front Grille and Cabinet Cleaning
Grille and cabinet may be cleaned with warm water and mild
soap or detergent. Cleaning and polishing compounds are not
recommended, as they may damage plastic surfaces.
Grasp exhaust grille and hinge up.
Air Filter Cleaning
A dirty air filter reduces operating efficiency of unit. Filter
should be inspected at least once every week during operation. Clean filter with vacuum cleaner or wash in warm water
and mild detergent. Filter should be thoroughly dried before
replacing in unit. Do not operate unit without filter in place.
Fan Motor Care
The fan motor is permanently lubricated for long life. There is
no need to oil the motor.
Slide-out Chassis Removal from Outer Case
Grasp filter handle and slide filter out of unit.
1. Hinge front grille up.
2. Remove air filter by grasping handle and lifting up.
3. Remove 3 screws (1 each side and 1 behind filter) holding
plastic front to unit and remove front.
4. If the unit has a screw holding the basepan clip to the
chassis, remove the screw.
CAUTION
To reduce the risk of personal injury, be sure to
have sufficient help when moving your unit. A
room air conditioner can weigh between 70 and
240 pounds.
5. Using basepan handle, pull chassis straight out, slowly
and evenly, until approximately 9-12 inches extends from
outer case. Use both hands to grasp basepan and pull
remaining chassis from outer case.
NOTE: Basepan clip is shipped in plastic bag with mounting
screw and condensate drain cup. Install clip after reinserting
chassis into outer case to prevent accidental chassis removal.
4
Drain Cup Installation and Use
Your air conditioner uses a system where the water removed
from the indoor air (condensate) is channeled to the outdoor
side of the unit. The outdoor fan blade has a “slinger” ring
attached to it that dips into the water and slings the water onto
the outdoor coil surface. This is the sound of water you hear
during normal operation. The water quickly evaporates on this
warm surface and improves the efficiency of your air conditioner.
In normal conditions the unit can evaporate the water as fast
as it is removed from the indoor air.
Chassis
However, in very humid conditions excess amounts of water
may drip off the unit chassis. If this proves to be a problem,
install the condensate drain cup included with the unit to route
excess water where it would not be a problem (see illustration
below).
To install, remove the unit chassis from the outer case. Insert
the condensate drain cup through the recessed ½” hole on the
back center flange of the outer case. Once inserted, place a
½” diameter hose or tube on the drain cup bottom spout. The
hose allows you to route where you want the excess water to
go. Reinsert the unit chassis into the outer case. The unit
basepan overflow hole will be positioned directly above the
drain cup and will catch any water that might run out.
Plastic Front
General Operating Instructions
While operation of all units is similar, controls vary slightly
from model to model. Operating Controls section shows
control panel of unit purchased and gives detailed information
about operation of controls.
Initial Start-Up and Cooling
Select the highest fan speed and set temperature control to
its coldest position. When the desired temperature is
reached, slowly move the temperature control toward a
warmer setting until the compressor shuts off. The thermostat will then cycle the compressor on and off to maintain this
selected temperature. Adjust the fan speed for desired air
circulation.

CAUTION
See CAUTION under General Instructions. Cut or build
rough opening large enough to allow a framed, finished
opening 17-inches high and 26 1/8-inches wide. When case
is properly positioned in opening, secure it to framing material with nails or screws driven through holes in sides of
outer case (shim case and predrill holes before securing).
In order to reinstall the chassis and reattach the air conditioner front cover, the
installed outercase must be square and
level from side to side. Use wood shims
between sides of case and finished opening - especially where case is secured to
opening - to prevent warping or distorting.
Check installed case for distortion using
carpenter's square.
A finished opening 26 1/8-inches wide x 17-inches high is
recommended. The lower left inside corner of opening must
be within 5 feet of an appropriate electrical outlet (see Use
and Care manual for electrical requirements.)

Placement of Outer Case in Opening
Place outer case in opening, flush against one side of
opening. Use carpenter’s level and ensure case is level
from side to side and has a 3/8-inch slope from front to back
(back of case must be 3/8-inch lower than front to ensure
proper condensate drainage). If needed, use shims to level
case (from side to side) and to obtain proper back slope.
Front of case must project ¾-inch (minimum) beyond inside wall in order to attach air conditioner front frame. If
framing indoor side of opening with wood molding (or other
decorative material), extend outer case ¾-inch beyond
molding.
Dimensions of Finished Opening
Masonry Construction
When case is properly positioned in opening, use wood
shims to fill any gaps between case and finished opening,
especially in area where case will be secured to opening.
Take care not to warp or distort case when installing
shims. For condensate drainage, install drainage cup in
drain hole on baseplate of case.
See CAUTION under General Instructions. In masonry
walls, cut or build a finished opening 17-inches high by
26 1/8-inches wide. When case is properly positioned in
opening, secure it in place with mortar or concrete nails
driven through holes in sides of outer case (shim case and
predrill holes before securing with nails).

•
If you turn off the air conditioner, wait at least 3 minutes
before turning it back on. This prevents the air conditioner from blowing a fuse or tripping a circuit breaker.
Do not try to operate your air conditioner in the cooling
mode when outside temperature is below 61°F (16°C).
Do not try to operate your air conditioner in the heating
mode when outside temperature is over 86°F (30°C).
•
NOTES:

°C, press the INCREASE
/ DECREASE
buttons
simultaneously for approximately 5 seconds. To return
to °F, repeat the procedure.

How to set:
Cooling Descriptions
Press the TIMER 0.5-24 hr pad on the unit or theTIMER pad
on the remote control. Each touch of the INCREASE
/ DECREASE pads on the unit or the INCREASE (+) /
DECREASE (-) pads on the remote control will set the
timer in 0.5 (1/2 hr.) or 1-hour intervals. (The delay timer
can be set in 0.5 (1/2 hr.) increments if programmed for
under 10 hours, but if the delay timer is set for above 10
hours, the timer will be set in 1-hour increments.) The
SET light will turn on while setting.
To review the remaining time ,
press the TIMER 0.5-24 hr pad on the unit or the TIMER pad
on the remote control. Use the INCREASE
/ DECREASE
pads on the unit or the INCREASE (+) /
DECREASE (-) pads on the remote control to set a new
time if desired.
To cancel the timer, press and hold the TIMER 0.5-24 hr
pad until the light on the TIMER 0.5-24 hr pad goes off.
u
Swing Pad
Turn on to provide continuous side-to-side air circulation.
For fixed side-to-side air direction, turn on until the desired air direction is obtained, then turn it off.
Remote Control:
•
To ensure proper operation, aim the remote control at
the signal receiver on the air conditioner.
•
The remote control signal has a range of up to 20 feet.
•
Make sure nothing is between the air conditioner and
the remote control that could block the signal.
•
Make sure your batteries are fresh and installed correctly as indicated on the remote control.
Cool Mode
Use the COOL mode at LOW, MED, HIGH, or AUTO
FAN SPEED for cooling. Use the TEMPERATURE INCREASE
/ DECREASE
pads to set the desired
temperature between 61° and 86°F in 1° increments.
The compressor will cycle on and off to keep the room at
the set level of comfort. Set the thermostat at a lower
number and the indoor air will become cooler. Set the
thermostat at a higher number and the indoor air will become warmer.
NOTE: If the air conditioner is off and then turned on
while set to a COOL setting, or if it is turned from a fan
setting to a COOL setting, it may take approximately 3
minutes for the compressor to start and cooling to begin.
For Normal Cooling - Select the COOL mode and HIGH
or MED fan with a middle set temperature.
For Maximum Cooling - Select the COOL mode and
HIGH fan with a lower set temperature.
For Quieter & Nighttime Cooling - Select the COOL
mode and LOW fan with a middle set temperature.
Energy Saver Mode
Controls the fan.
ON - The fan will cycle on and off with the compressor.
This results in wider variations of room temperature
and humidity and is normally used when the room is
unoccupied.
NOTE: The fan may continue to run for a short time after
the compressor cycles off.
OFF - The fan runs all the time, while the compressor
cycles on and off.
Fan Only Mode
Use the FAN ONLY mode at LOW, MED or HIGH fan
speed to provide air circulation and filtering without cooling. Since the fan only settings do not provide cooling, a
SET temperature cannot be entered. The room temperature will appear in the display.
NOTE: Auto Fan Speed cannot be used when in the FAN
ONLY mode.
Heat Mode (on some models)
Use the HEAT mode at LOW, MED, HIGH or AUTO FAN
SPEED for heating. Use the TEMPERATURE INCREASE
/ DECREASE
pads to set the desired temperature between 61°F and 86°F in 1°F increments.
Auto Fan Speed
Set to AUTO fan speed for the fan speed to automatically set to the speed needed to provide optimum comfort settings with the set temperature. If the room needs
more cooling, the fan speed will automatically increase.
If the room needs less cooling, the fan speed will automatically decrease.
NOTE: Auto Fan Speed cannot be used when in the FAN
ONLY mode.
Power Outage Recovery Feature
In the case of a power outage or interruption, the unit will
automatically re-start in the settings last used, after the
power is restored. If the TIMER 0.5-24 hr feature was set,
it will resume countdown. You may need to set a new
time if desired.
