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.

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.
• Do not cover appliance with clothes of any other objects.
Electrical Information
Do not, under any
circumstances, cut,
remove, or bypass the
grounding prong.

plug and current
detection device
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 water 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.

EXHAUSTING HOT AIR
In the COOLING Mode the appliance must be placed close to a window or opening
so that the warm exhaust air can be ducted outside.
First position unit on a flat floor and make sure there's a minimum of 12" clearance
around the unit, and is within the vicinity of a single circuit outlet.
Exhaust Air Oulet
Exhaust Adaptor
Attach the exhaust adaptor to the back of the unit by placing the hinge into the slot,
and then locate the right side into the toothed slots. Finally push the hose connector
downwards to secure. (Fig. 5)
Place the Flexible Duct onto the exhaust adaptor. (Fig. 6)
Fig. 5
WINDOW DISCHARGE
• Place the window adaptor at the other end of the exhaust hose. Affix this
end into the window slider kit and seal. (Fig. 7a & b)

WALL DISCHARGE
Fig. 8
• Mount wall adaptor directly over correctly installed duct to outside.
(This usually includes aluminum wall ducting & an outside cover. See
your hardware specialist for correct installation.)
• Use wall plugs & screws to secure. (Fig. 7c)
• Attach hose duct to wall adaptor.
The hose can be extended from its original length of 20" up to 80", but it is
best to keep the length to the minimum required. Also make sure that the
hose does not have any sharp bends or sags. (Fig. 8)
Power
cord
Next place the water pump drain hose on the end of the spigot. (Fig. 9)
Locate the open end either through the rubber grommet in the window slider
kit so it can discharge out through the window, or in a suitable discharge
drain. There is also provision for continuous drainage. Refer to the drainage
section.

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.
•
•
•
CARE & CLEANING
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 2oF, between 60oF and 90oF
(16oC and 32oC).
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.
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.
• Pull open the filter cover by grasping the handle at the bottom.
• Remove the filter.
• 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 appliance during the winter, cover it with plastic or return it
to its carton.
