Drainage
Specifications
During the process of cooling, some water will be extracted from the air into the unit. Most of this water
is used to cool the unit and make it run more efficiently. This is a feature not found in most Portable Air
Conditioners. If the unit is operated in VERY HUMID air, water will collect in the container inside the unit.
If the Internal Water Container is full, the backlight on the LCD display will flash, the unit will shut off, and
it must be drained before it will re-start.

When this mode is selected, the unit is preset to the following temperature settings and unit will only start to:
• Cool when room temperature is higher than 75ºF
• Heat when room temperature is lower than 68ºF (ALD-12,000EH only)
If room temperature is between 68ºF and 75ºF, unit will stay in Fan mode. Again, when in Auto Mode, the temperature
settings cannot be changed.
Setting the Temperature in Cooling or Heating Mode
The display window’s default is to display the ambient room temperature. The green indicator light under RT is on.
(RT = Room Temperature)
To set your desired temperature, press the Temperature up or down buttons (ranging from 62ºF to 90ºF). Each press
will increase or decrease your set temperature by 1ºF. When pressing the temperature up or down buttons, the
window will change to display your set temperature. At this time, the green indicator will light under ST (Set
Temperature). Once the temperature up or down buttons is released, the window will return to displaying the
ambient temperature after a second.
Note: When unit is in the following modes: Auto, Cool, or Heat - the compressor will cool/heat the room to reach
the set temperature. Once the ambient temperature has reached the set temperature, the compressor will stop and
unit will run in Fan mode. To conserve energy, the compressor will not start immediately after a couple degrees
increase or decrease, but will wait for a 5ºF allowance. For example:
In Cooling Mode with a set temperature of 70ºF
When compressor first stops after reaching 70ºF, unit will auto-switch to Fan.
Compressor will start cooling again when ambient temperature increases to 75ºF or above.
In Heating Mode with a set temperature of 72ºF
When compressor first stops after reaching 72ºF, unit will auto-switch to Fan.
Compressor will start heating again when ambient temperature drops to 67ºF or below.
In Auto Mode (with preset temperature of 68ºF for heat and 75ºF for cool)
Compressor will start cooling again when ambient temperature reaches above 80ºF or will start heating when
ambient temperature drops below 63ºF.

Before Use
Operation
Setting The Fan Speed
Important!
• Leave the unit in an upright position for at least 2 hours before use.
• Always place the unit on an even surface.
• The power cord has a built-in L.C.D.I. (Leakage, Current, Detection, Interruption) circuit
breaker for added safety. If the power supply is interrupted, please press the reset
button to reconnect the unit to the power source. The green light should be on.
• Make sure the unit is connected to a correctly grounded power supply.
• For proper operation, the unit must be vented to the outside.
• Do not cover or obstruct the appliance inlet or outlet grilles.
• To avoid the risk of shock, the product should never be used in bathrooms, shower rooms
or in any other steamy or wet areas.
• Always transport the unit in an upright position.
• Do not sit or stand on the unit.
Press the SPEED button to choose the fan speed you require, high or low.
The indicator of high or low fan will light up at the same time.
If the unit is in AUTO mode, it will select the fan speed automatically according to the
ambient temperature (the related indicators, cool, fan or heat will light up), at this time the
fan speed switch is invalid.
Setting the Timer
Press the TIMER button to set the operating hours you desire (1 to 12 hours, the timer
indicator will light up). When the set time has elapsed, the machine will turn off
automatically. The display window will show the hour(s) you set as you press the TIMER button.
If the timer button is not pressed, the unit will work continuously.
By pressing the timer button but without turning on the unit, you can PRE-SET the time for
the machine to work. For example, if you press the timer to ‘2’,
the unit will come on automatically after 2 hours.
All the above functions can also be performed with the supplied remote
control. This remote control requires 2 AAA batteries to operate.
Regulating the Airflow Direction
• Do not place objects on the unit.
• Do not touch the unit with wet/damp hands or when standing barefoot.
• Drainage of the water container is required before moving the unit or
putting it into storage.
• If the electric socket is different from the plug provided, have a professionally qualified
electrician replace the outlet with a suitable one. Avoid the use of adaptor plugs, multiple
sockets and/or extension cords; if their use is necessary, ensure that they conform to the
current safety regulations.
• Do not pull the power cord or place it near a source of heat; always unroll it completely
to avoid the possibility of dangerous overheating.
• If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a qualified person.
THE MANUFACTURER DISCLAIMS ANY RESPONSIBILITY IF THE ABOVE
INSTRUCTIONS ARE NOT FOLLOWED.

Turn the roller on the air vent to control
the airflow direction from the vertical louvres.
Move the air vent directly to adjust the
airflow direction from the horizontal louvres.
IMPORTANT!
• The compressor will start approximately 3 minutes after the unit is turned on (this will
help prolong the life of the compressor). After switching the unit off, please wait at least
3 minutes before turning the unit back on.
• The cooling system will switch off if the room temperature is lower than set. The fan, however, keeps
working at the set level. If the ambient temperature rises above the chosen temperature +/-5°F,
the cooling will resume.
• In heating mode, the compressor will switch off if the room temperature is HIGHER than the one set
(the fan keeps working at the set level). When the room temperature drops 5°F below the chosen
temperature, heating will resume.
• This machine is equipped with an ANTI-FROST function. Sometimes, while using the heating function
during low temperatures, the heating will stop for a while to melt the internal frost. When this occurs,
wait for heating to resume.
• As you switch on the heating, the fan will stop for 15-20 seconds prior to the unit starting.
