Your air conditioner must be used in a properly grounded wall
receptacle. If the wall receptacle you intend to use is not adequately
grounded or protected by a time delay fuse or circuit breaker,
have a qualified electrician install the proper receptacle.
Ensure the receptacle is accessible after the unit installation.

TO SELECT THE OPERATING MODE:
Heat Controller, Inc.
To choose operating mode, press the Mode button.
Each time you press the button, a mode is selected in a
sequence that goes from Auto, Cool, Dry and Fan. The
indicator light beside will illuminate and remain on once the
mode is selected.
When you set the air conditioner in AUTO mode, it
will automatically select cooling or fan only operation
depending on what temperature you have selected and
the room temperature.
Use this function only when cooling is not desired, such as
for room air circulation or to exhaust stale air (on some models). Remember to open the vent during this function, but
keep it closed during cooling for maximum cooling efficiency.
You can choose any fan speed you prefer when Fan Only
mode is selected.
In this mode, the air conditioner will generally operate in the
form of a dehumidifier. However, some degree of cooling will
continue.
