Note: Remove the 2 shipping screws on the top of the air conditioner
that hdd the chassis to the outer shd[ casing. Once removed,
these do not have to be re-instdbd.
To ensure that your air
conditioner is properly installed in the wall, it is recommended
that it be installed by a certified technician who is familiar with
through the wall installations.
1) Using wood, 1" or more in thickness, build a wooden frame to fit the
casing/cabinet
dimensions of the unit which you have purchased.
2) Measure the outside width and the height of the frame to determine the
cutout dimensionsnecessaryfor the opening in the wall. The depth of the
frame wi[[ depend on the depth of the wall. The finished frame mustbe set
in the inside wall. The frame has to be squared and bvded. Rememberthe
frame has to be nailed securelyto the wail studs. (See Fig. # 19)
Fig. # 19
3) Now to install, insertthe casing into the wall opening. (Removethe
chassisout first following steps 1 - 6 in Slide-outchassissection).
Make sure that the cabinet is at least 1/2" inch inside the room. Also the
side louversshould not be blocked. This is to have proper air circulation in
and around the compressor.(SeeFig, # 20)

4) The casing should be tilted 1/4" outside so as to drain the excess

5) Properly insulate any opening bebveen the casing and the frame.
6) Using the screw holes on the sides of the unit, which are for the window
mounting kit and the screw hobs in the top mounting kit rail, attach the
casing to the wood frame.
7) With the help of another person lift and put the chassisof the
air conditioner in to the casing.
8) Screw the security screw into place and snap on the grille.
9) If the filter was removed during this process, reinsert the filter.
