Important Safety
Instructions
Read all instructions before using this air conditioner.
For Your Safety
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any
other appliance. Read product labels for flammability and other warnings.
The power supply cord with
this air conditioner contains a current
detection device designed to reduce the risk
of fire.
Please refer to the section ‘Operation of
Current Device’ for details.
In the event that the power supply cord is
damaged, it cannot be repaired-it must be
replaced with a cord from the Product
Manufacturer.
Avoid fire hazard or electric
shock. Do not use an extension cord or an
adaptor plug. Do not remove any prong from
the power cord.
Grounding type wall
receptacle
Prevent Accidents
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons when using your air conditioner,
follow basic precautions, including the following:
• Be sure the electrical service is adequate for the model you have chosen. This information
can be found on the serial plate, which is located on the side of the cabinet and behind the
grille.
• If the air conditioner is to be installed in a window, you will probably want to clean both
sides of the glass first. If the window is a triple-track type with a screen panel included,
remove the screen completely before installation.
• Be sure the air conditioner has been securely and correctly installed according to the
separate installation instructions provided with this manual. Save this manual and the
installation instructions for possible future use in removing or reinstalling this unit.
• When handling the air conditioner, be careful to avoid cuts from sharp metal fins on front
and rear coils.
Electrical Information
Do not, under any
circumstances, cut,
remove, or bypass the
grounding prong.

Energy Saving Ideas
The complete electrical rating of your new room air conditioner is stated on the serial plate.
Refer to the rating when checking the electrical requirements.
• Be sure the air conditioner is properly grounded. To minimize shock and fire hazards,
proper grounding is important. The power cord is equipped with a three-prong grounding
plug for protection against shock hazards.
• 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.
• Do not run air conditioner with outside protective cover in place. This could result in
mechanical damage within the air conditioner.
• Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.
• Do not block air flow inside with blinds, curtains or furniture; or outside with shrubs,
enclosures, or other buildings.
• The capacity of the room air conditioner must fit the room size for efficient and satisfactory
operation.
• Install the room air conditioner on the shady side of your home. A window that faces north
is best because it is shaded most of the day.
• Close the fireplace damper, floor and wall registers so cool air does not escape up the
chimney and into the duct work.
• Keep blinds and drapes in other windows closed during the sunniest part of the day.
• Clean the air filter as recommended in the section “Care and Cleaning.”
• Proper insulation and weather stripping in your home will help keep warm air out and cool
air in.
• External house shading with trees, plants or awnings will help reduce the air conditioner’s
work load.
• Operate heat producing appliances such as ranges, washers, dryers and dishwashers
during the coolest part of the day.

ADDITIONAL THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
Now that you have mastered the operating procedure, here are more features in your control that you should become familiar with.
• 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 degrees Fahrenheit, between 60F and 90F degrees.
• 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/TIMER” Up (
) and Down (
) buttons together for 3 seconds.
Fresh Air Vent Control (On some models)
The Fresh Air Vent allows the air conditioner to:
1. Recirculate inside air - Vent Closed (see Fig. 1)
2. Draw fresh air into the room - Vent Open (see Fig. 2)
3. Exchange air from the room and draws fresh air into the room - Vent and Exhaust
Open (see Fig. 3)
Figure 1 (VENT CLOSED)
Figure 2 (VENT OPEN)
Figure 3 (VENT & EXHAUST OPEN)
Air Directional Louvers
Air directional louvers control air flow direction. Your air conditioner has the louver type
described below.
Auger Type
(8-WAY)
AUGER WHEELS
The louvers will allow you to direct the air flow Up or Down and Left or Right throughout
the room as needed. Rotate the Auger Wheels until the desired Left/Right direction is
obtained. Pivot horizontal louvers until the desired Up/Down direction is obtained.

Care and Cleaning
Clean your air conditioner occasionally to keep it looking new. Be sure to unplug the
unit before cleaning to prevent shock or fire hazards.
Air Filter Cleaning
The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is necessary.
Trapped particles in the filter can build up and cause an accumulation of frost on the
cooling coils.
• Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position (where applicable).
• Open the front panel.
• Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.
• Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter
thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is thoroughly dry
before replacing.
• Or, instead of washing you may vacuum the filter clean.
Cabinet Cleaning
• Be sure to unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or fire hazard. The cabinet and
front may be dusted with an oil-free cloth or washed with a cloth dampened in a solution
of warm water and mild liquid dishwashing detergent. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry.
• Never use harsh cleaners, wax or polish on the cabinet front.
• Be sure to wring excess water from the cloth before wiping around the controls. Excess
water in or around the controls may cause damage to the air conditioner.
• Plug in air conditioner.
Winter Storage
If you plan to store the air conditioner during the winter, remove it carefully from the
window according to the installation instructions. Cover it with plastic or return it to the
original carton.
