MASONRY CONSTRUCTION
1. Cut or build a wall opening in the masonry wall
similar to the frame construction (refer to Step 2
of Thru-The-Wall Installation for wall thickness
greater than 8-1/2").
3. Install a lintel to support masonry wall above
cabinet. Existing holes in cabinet can be used
and/or additional holes can be drilled to fasten
cabinet at various positions. Be sure that side
louver clearance is in accordance with Step 1
of Masonry Construction.
2. Secure cabinet in place using masonry nails or
the right masonry anchor screws. (Another way
to do this is to build an in-between frame of
2x4's as shown in Step 2 of Thru-The-Wall
Installation but make it double framed on either
side and install between masonry wall opening
and cabinet. Frame must be securely anchored
to masonry wall opening.) This way gives very
good louver clearance on either side of cabinet.
4. Install exterior cabinet support brackets as
shown in Step 2 of Thru-The-Wall Installation.
Caulk or flash if needed to provide a weathertight seal around top and sides of cabinet.
5. To complete installation, apply wood trim
moulding around room side projection of cabinet.
NOTE: After installing, make sure the air conditioner is tilted 3-4º to the outside to allow water drainage and
perfect cooling efficiency.

CARE AND CLEANING
CAUTION
Clean air conditioner occasionally to keep it
looking and operating like 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 every
two weeks or as necessary. Trapped particles in
the filter can build up and cause an accumulation
of frost on the cooling coils.
• Place one hand on each side of the unit and
tilt-open the front panel.
• Take the filter by the center and pull it up.
• Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing
detergent and warm water. Rinse filter
throroughly.
• Gently shake excess water from the filter.
Be sure the filter is thoroughly dry before
replacing.
• As an alternative, 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 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 the controls. Excess water in or
around the controls may cuase damage to the
air conditioner.
• Plug in air conditioner after unit has dried
completely.
NOTES:
• Never use hot water over 104ºF (40ºC) to
clean the air filter.
• Never attempt to operate the unit without the
air filter.
WINTER STORAGE
If air conditioner will be stored in the winter,
remove it carefully from the window according to
the installation instructions. Cover it with plastic or
return it to the original carton.
Always store unit in upright position.

Possible Solutions
• Be sure unit is not too large or too small for the area of the room.
• Verify that all doors, windows, curtains and any other openings are closed off. Verify nothing is obstructing the
front grille of unit, such as curtains, etc.
• Allow enough time for room to cool, especially if outside temp is very high.
• Check that the filter is not dirty and louvers are open all the way and blowing in the direction desired.
• Check that unit is set to Cool Mode and that temperature is down enough (but not too low).
• If unit is near a heat source, such as a stove, etc., then relocate unit.
• If air coming from unit is cool to the touch, then unit is working properly; please double check the first three
bullet points above.
• If using Follow Me remote feature, move remote away from unit.
• Temperature sensor behind air filter touching cold coil. These two elements should not be touching.
Carefully straighten tube away from coil.
• Unplug unit for at least 5 minutes. Follow Reset instructions on plug.
• Outdoor temperature is below 64ºF (18ºC). To defrost the coil, set to Fan Only mode.
• Air filter may be dirty. Clean filter. Refer to Care and Cleaning section. To defrost, set to Fan Only mode.
• Thermostat is set too cold for night-time cooling. To defrost the coil, set to Fan Only mode. Then, set
temperature to a higher setting.
• Be sure unit is not too large or too small for the area of the room.
• Remove grille and make sure the temperature sensor is not too close to the coils. These two elements should
not be touching. Carefully straighten tube away from coil.
• Make sure nothing is blocking the grille or side vents.
• Make sure there is no dirt or debris inside the unit or on the filter.
• Reset circuit breaker. Make sure there are not too many items (ie lamps, TV’s, etc.) working off the
same breaker.
• Check plug connection.
• If plug is operating on an on/off switch, be sure that the switch is ‘on’.
• Try plugging unit into another outlet.
• Unplug unit for at least 5 minutes. Follow Reset instructions on plug.
• Make sure there are enough available amps on the circuit for the air conditioner.
• Large units which run on a 230v will require a dedicated 20 or 30 amp circuit.
• Check to be sure the unit is free from debris such as leaves, sticks, etc. Verify nothing is obstructing the unit.
• Check the fan blade for cracks or chips.
• Make sure the unit is properly and securely mounted inside the window or wall.
• Clean the air filter.
WATER PUDDLES INSIDE UNIT
OR IS COMING INTO ROOM
• Adjust the slope of the unit so that it drains downward toward the exterior of the home.
(See Installation Instructions.)
• Make sure that there is no debris blocking the drainage area of the unit.
WATER DRIPPING OUTSIDE
• Unit is removing a large quantity of moisture from a humid room. This is normal during excessively humid days.
REMOTE SENSING / FOLLOW ME
DEACTIVATING PREMATURELY
• Remote control not located within range. Place remote control within 20 ft and 180º radius of the front
of the unit.
• Remote control signal obstructed. Remove obstruction.
