The "Cool" circuit has an automatic 3 minute time delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping. The fan will continue to run during this time. The control will maintain the set temperature within 2 °F, between 62 °F and 86 °F (17 °C and 30 °C). The control is capable of displaying temperature in degrees Fahrenheit or degrees Celsius. To convert from one to the other and back, press and hold the "TEMP" Up ( ) and Down ( ) buttons together for 3 seconds. There is a 2-Second delay for the compressor shutting down when selecting FAN ONLY/HEAT. This is to cover the possibility of having to roll through to select another mode. After a power outage, the unit will memorize the last setting and return the unit to the same setting once power is restored.
