LCDI POWER CORD AND PLUG
This air conditioner is equipped with an LCDI (Leakage Current Detection and Interruption) power cord and
plug as required by US National Electric Code 440.65. This cord consists of a length of shielded flexible cord
with no termination on the load side and a LCDI attachment plug on the line side.
The LCDI power cord and plug will remove the supply source via electrical disconnect (circuit trip) if the
nominal current leakage between the cord shield and either load conductor exceeds a predetermined value.
The cord will remain de-energized until the devise has been manually reset. This is intended to reduce the risk
of a fire in the power cord or combustible materials nearby. The cord shields are not grounded and they must
be considered a shock hazards if exposed. The cord shield must not be connected to ground or to any exposed
metal.
The test and reset buttons on the LCDI Plug are used to check if the plug is functioning properly. To test:
1. Plug power cord into wall outlet
2. Press TEST Button, circuit should trip, cutting power to the air conditioner
3. Press RESET button for use
If a test is performed and the indicator light remains ON, current leakage has been detected. Do not use the air
conditioner or attempt to reset the LCDI Plug. Contact Soleus Air Powered by Gree Customer Service for troubleshooting recommendations.

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION
INSTALLATION
When the unit is operating as an air conditioner or dehumidifier, the window kit and exhaust hose must be installed.
When the unit is operating in fan mode, the window kit and exhaust hose do not need to be installed .
MOUNTING THE EXHAUST HOSE
• Choose a suitable location, near a grounded electrical outlet and suitable window or door. Remove
packaging and locate components.
• Extend both ends of the exhaust hose approximately 6 inches.
• Screw the REAR and FRONT Exhaust Hose Adapters onto each end of the exhaust hose. Once both
adapters are attached, attach the Window Kit Adapter to the REAR Exhaust Hose Adapter.
• Connect the FRONT Exhaust Hose Adapter to the back of your portable air conditioner.
• Attach the Window Kit Adapter to the window kit.
• For maximum efficiency bend the exhaust hose as little as possible once installation is complete.

When installing the exhaust hose, try and keep it as flat as possible. The less angles and bends
in the hose, the better the unit will perform. If bending or an angle is necessary, use single 90°
angles like the pictures above. Multiple bends will decrease performance and efficiency
