• The unit is designed for indoor operation.
• Rating: This unit must be connected to a 220-240 V / 50 Hz earthed outlet.
• The installation must be in accordance with regulations of the country where the
unit is used.
If you are in any doubt about the electrical installation, have it checked and if
necessary modified by a qualified electrician.
• The air conditioner is safe. However, as with other electrical appliances, use it
with care.
• Keep out of the reach of children.
• Do not clean the unit by spraying it or immersing it in water.
• Do not insert any object into the openings of the unit.
• Disconnect it from the mains before cleaning the unit or any of its components.
• Never connect the unit to an electrical outlet using an extension cord. If an outlet
is not available, one should be installed by a licensed electrician.
WARNING
• Never operate this appliance if it has a damaged cord or plug. Do not lead the
cord over sharp edges.
• A damaged supply cord should be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent
or a qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.

ELECTRIC CONNECTION (see page 8 on how to wire a plug)
For your safety please read the following information.
Warning: This appliance must be earthed.
This appliance operates from a 3 pin 13 amp plug. The voltage rating is 230 volts
and should be protected by a 13 amp fuse either in the plug or distribution board.
The appliance is supplied with a moulded 13 amp 3 pin mains plug fitted with a
13 amp fuse. Should the fuse require replacement, it must be replaced with a fuse
rated at 13 amp and approved to BS1362.
The plug contains a removable fuse cover that must be refitted when the fuse is
replaced. In the event of the fuse cover being lost or damaged, the plug must not be
used until a replacement cover has been obtained.
If the moulded mains plug is unsuitable for the socket outlet in your home or is
removed for any other reason, then the fuse should be removed and the cut off plug
disposed of safely to prevent the hazard of electric shock.
There is a danger of electric shock if the cut off plug is inserted into any 13 amp
socket outlet.

POSITIONING
This unit is portable and can easily be moved from one room to another. In doing
so keep this in mind:
• The air conditioner must stand upright on an even surface.
• Position not (near) bath, douche or other wet or damp area.
• Keep for free air circulation at least 50 cm free from any obstacle or curtains.

Installation
• Put the exhaust hose into the round side of the exhaust hose
adapter (13) (fig. 1).
• Put the wall/window adapter (14) onto the exhaust hose
(fig. 2).
• Connect the hose with the rectangular end to the air
conditioner (fig. 4).

Using the foam.
Place the foam with the hole (11), if needed together with the foam extension (10),
in the window and close this as far as possible to refrain the warm air from reentering the room (fig. 5). Depending on how the window opens, horizontally
(fig. 3a) or vertically (fig. 3b).
Pass the hose through the opening in the foam (11).
Permanent hole in glass or wall.
Place the wall/window connector (14) in the hole with diameter 130 millimetre
(fig. 6). Connect the hose with the rectangular end to the air conditioner (fig. 4).
Use the cap (15) to close the opening when the air conditioner is not used.
Important
The flexible exhaust hose can be extended from 300 to 1500 mm for mounting.
This length has been designed especially according to the specifications of the air
conditioner. Do not use an extension or exchange for a different hose as that may
lead to malfunctioning.
The exhaust air must flow freely, any blockage can lead to overheating of the air
conditioner. Take care to prevent any bow or bend in the exhaust hose.

•
•
Remove the drain knob and the rubber plug.
Connect the correct water tube onto the water outlet.
Place the other end in a normal drain.
Make sure that the tube is free from twists and bends.
The tube must incline over its entire length.
Dehumidification
If the unit will be used mainly as dehumidifier, do not connect
the exhaust hose and let the warm air return in the room.
Continuous drainage is then convenient and more efficient.

GB
CLEANING
First of all switch off the unit and pull the plug.
Clean the housing with a soft, damp cloth. Never use aggressive chemicals, petrol,
detergents or other cleansing solutions.
Filter
The single layer screen filter cleans the circulated air. The filter needs to be cleaned
regularly with a vacuum cleaner to avoid blocking the air flow.
• Push the two clips on the filter housing downward and pull the filter housing
forward and out of the unit.
• Remove the rear retainer from the housing by gently prising it from the retaining
clips.
• Insert the screen filter aligning the two cut outs with the clips on the top of the
filter housing.
• Reverse the procedure to re-fit the housing in the air conditioner.
Notice! Never use the air conditioner without filter.
STORAGE
See the instructions "Emptying the water container" on page 7.
• Drain the condensed water completely.
• Clean (or replace) the filter.
• Put the unit on a sunny day in fan mode for a couple of
hours to ensure that the inside becomes completely dry.
• Store the power cable as shown, protect the unit against
dust and store in a dry place not accessible for children.

AMCOR GUARANTEE PROCEDURE
Amcor products have a lower than industry norm failure rate, as we have strict quality
control in our factory. However we are not 100% perfect and occasionally units can fail.
When they do we have a simple returns procedure.
All Amcor products are guaranteed for one-year from date of purchase, on a back to
base principle. A copy of our guarantee page is attached.
Consumers need to keep the till receipt as proof of purchase.
The Amcor Help line number for the UK 020 8 560 4141 appears on the back of each
unit and in the instruction manual.
If a consumer believes the unit to be faulty the first course of action is to phone the
Help line 0208 560 4141. A trained engineer will speak to them. Often we find that this
eliminates 95% of no fault found, as the customer may not be using the product in the
correct manner.
If the engineer believes the unit may be faulty, Amcor will arrange collection by a carrier
from the consumer. The product must be boxed and amply protected to avoid cosmetic
damage in transit. If the consumer is unable to be present to allow for collection, the
boxed unit can be collected from store. Of course Amcor pay the carriage charge.
On reaching Amcor the unit is checked, repaired or replaced, re-boxed and returned
again by carrier to an agreed return address. This process usually takes 5 – 7 working
days.
If the customer returns to store and claims the unit to be faulty we would ask that you
carry out the same procedure as above, particularly with air conditioners, rather than
simply exchange or refund. Again this eliminates the risk that the consumer is not using
the product correctly. However goods returned faulty inside 28 days can be exchanged
– usually faulty goods “dead on arrival” will be returned to store by the consumer within
a few days.
To exchange or refund DOA goods within 28 days stores must call Amcor on 020 8 560
4141 (Monday – Friday 09.00 – 17.30 hrs.) for an authorisation number. If goods need
to be exchanged over a week-end (or late evening) stores must contact Amcor on the
next working day. Amcor will require store details, product details and date of purchase/
return.
Goods returned under 28 day agreement that are found to have significant wear & tear
will not be credited; consequently stores must check purchase and return dates.
Goods returned outside 28 days of purchase will not be authorised for return to Amcor.
Instead we will collect / repair / return the unit under our normal guarantee procedure.
Outside of the guarantee period Amcor are able to service or repair units for a
reasonable cost. Consumers can get details of the cost from the Help line number.
Consumables such as activated carbon filters can be bought directly from Amcor;
payment can be by cheque or credit card.
This guarantee is in addition to the customers’ statutory rights.
