Exhaust Hose
Fish Tail Adaptor
Window slide Fitting
Installing Exhaust Hose
In normal use the EH1768 will produce hot air from
the rear exhaust port, this air can be vented through
an open window using the supplied vent kit. Connect
the exhaust hose as follows, extend the hose slightly
and screw into the rear of the unit. Extend the opposite
end of the hose slightly and screw on the fishtail adaptor,
clip the adaptor into the window slide bar.
Window
Bar
Fishtail
Adaptor
Seat the window slide adaptor on the window sill
and lower the window to the adaptor. The window
slide can be adjusted horrizontally to fill the width of
the window.
Exhaust
Hose
The position of the exhaust pipe is very important, sharp bends and kinks should be avoided.
Correct
Correct
Correct
Incorrect
Improper fitting of the exhaust hose can cause the hose to fill with water and prevent the unit from
operating correctly. The hose supplied with the unit can extend to 1.5m but the length of exhaust
pipe should be kept to the minimum necessary for operation as this will improve efficiency.

OPERATION
Cooling mode
• After the machine turns on, the default mode is ‘cooling’ with the temperature set at 22℃
and the fan speed on low.
• Press “MODE” to select cooling mode, the cooling mode indicator light turns on.
• Press “UP” or “DOWN” to adjust the desired temperature (16℃ to 31℃).
• Press “FAN” to select high or low fan speed.
• Press “Swing” to oscillate the air from side to side.
Fan mode
• Press “MODE” to select fan mode, fan mode indicator turns on.
• Press “FAN” to select high speed or low speed.
• In this mode Temperature and Sleep function have no effect.
Timer mode
• Under standby mode, press “TIMER” to setup the power-on time. Use the Up/Down buttons
to set the number of hours till the unit turns on. The timer indicator turns on.
• Under power-on mode, press “TIMER” to setup power-off timer. Use the Up/Down
buttons to set the number of hours till the unit turns off. The timer indicator turns on.
Dehumidifying mode
• Press “MODE” button to select dehumidifying mode, dehumidifying mode indicator turns on.
• Under dehumidifying mode, sleep function cannot be setup and the fan speed is set to low.
Sleeping mode
• Press the “SLEEP”button to enter sleep mode, the default value of the fan speed is low.
• When sleep mode is on and the unit is in cooling mode, after one hour the set temperature
will go up 1℃, after the second hour the set temperature will go up another 1℃ and then
continue at this temperature.
• The sleep function is disabled in dehumidifying and fan modes. If the water full indicator
lights, the machine is put in standby or the mode is changed the sleep mode will be cancelled.
Compressor protection
• To protect the unit from unnecessary wear the compressor will only turn on three minutes
after power on or restart and it will continue to run for 3 minutes after power off. DO NOT
unplug the unit till the compressor has stopped.
Water Drainage
This air conditioner has an auto-water-evaporating system. Condensed-water is transferred to the
hot exhaust air and vented through the hose. This will not only improve cooling efficiency, but also
save energy.
If inner water tank does become full, “W.F.” will flash on the display and the Water Full LED will
illuminate. At the same time the machine will enter standby mode and a buzzer will be heard. The
compressor will stop and no keys can be pressed on the display until the internal tank has been
emptied.
To empty the water tank, switch the unit off by pressing the Power button, wait for three minutes
then disconnect from the mains supply. Place a drainage pan underneath the drain pipe (at the
bottom, rear of the unit in the center). Remove the drain cap and withdraw the bung, allow the
water to drain into the drainage pan. Replace the bung and cap then reconnect the unit to the mains
supply.
In very humid environments it is possible the tank may fill more frequently, under these
circumstances it may be easier to fit a continuous drain. To do this attach a suitable pipe to the drain
port and run to drain.
MAINTENANCE
If the mains lead is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or an authorized service
center. If the mains plug needs to be replaced, proceed as follows:
Connect the brown wire to the terminal labelled "L".
Connect the blue wire to the terminal labelled "N"
Connect the green/yellow wire to the terminal labelled with the earth
symbol or "E".
Make sure that the cord-grip is positioned correctly (over the outer
sheath of the cable) and is fully tightened.
OPERATING COSTS
At time of going to press, the average cost of electricity is £0.12 per unit (kilowatt-hour). The
amount you are being charged will be shown on your electricity bill.
At this cost, the EH1768 will cost £0.10 per hour to run in heating, cooling or dehumidifying modes,
and £0.02 per hour to run in the fan-only mode.
To minimise the power used (and reduce operating costs):
Make sure that the filter is kept clean.
Make sure that the air intakes and exhausts are not obstructed.
Keep doors and windows closed to prevent conditioned air from escaping, and to prevent exhaust
air from re-entering the room.
Use blinds to prevent direct sunlight reaching the room.
Set the temperature higher whilst cooling.
DISPOSAL AND RECYCLING
You must not dispose of this appliance with domestic household waste.
Most local authorities have a specific collection system for appliances and disposal is free of charge
to the end-user.
When replacing an existing appliance with a similar new appliance your retailer may take the old
appliance for disposal.
This air conditioner contains R410a refrigerant gas. At the end of its life the disposal of this product
must be in accordance with local regulations.
PAT TESTING.
When used in an office environment we recommend that this product should be safety-tested yearly
by a qualified electrician (PAT Tested). We recommend that it is PAT tested regularly when used in a
domestic environment
CLEANING
The unit should be cleaned regularly to maintain the best possible operating efficiency and
performance.
Before any maintenance should be performed turn off the unit and once the fans and compressors
have stopped unplug the unit from the mains supply and leave for 3 minutes.
•
•
Use a soft semi-dry cloth to clean the machine. Do not use chemical agents, such as benzene,
alcohol or gasoline etc.; the use of such cleaning agents may damage the machine surface or
even the machine itself.
Do not spill water into the machine.
Filters
• Clean the filters every two weeks. Blocking the filters with excessive dust or dirt will reduce
the efficiency and effectiveness of the air conditioner.
• Clean the filters in warm water with a mild detergent, then leave cleaned filters to dry. Do
not replace filters until they are completely dry.
• Note: Do not run the machine without filters.
Seasonal Cleaning & Storage
• If the machine is not to be used for a prolonged period, please follow the instructions below:
• Empty the condensate tank by placing a drainage pan underneath the drain pipe (at the
bottom, rear of the unit in the center). Remove the drain cap and withdraw the bung, allow
the water to drain into the drainage pan. Replace the bung and cap.
• Let the machine run under fan only mode for 2 hours to dry out the internal machine parts.
• Turn off machine and unplug from the mains supply.
• Clean and dry the filters, then reinstall them.
• Unscrew the exhaust pipe and store in a safe place.
• Cover the machine (a clean bin bag will do the job), and store in a dry place.
