WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons, read the IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS before operating this appliance.
! NOTE:
Alway wait 3 minutes when turning unit off and then on again, and when changing from cool to fan and
then back to cool. The cool circuit has an automatic 3 minute time delayed start if the unit is turned off
and on quickly or is switched between cool and fan quickly. This allows pressure inside of the compressor
to equalize and prevents overheating as well as possible circuit breaker tripping. Failure to follow these
instructions may be harmful to your unit.
To begin operating the air conditioner, follow these steps:
1. Set the thermostat to the highest number (coldest or cooler setting).
2. Set the selector control to the highest COOL setting.
3. Adjust the louver for comfortable air flow. (See “Air Directional Louvers” below.)
4. Once the room has cooled, adjust the thermostat to the setting you find most comfortable.
5. Make sure that the air flow inside and outside are not obstructed by anything.
Air Directional Louvers
The louvers will allow you to direct the air flow Up or Down (on some models) and Left or Right
throughout the room as needed. Pivot horizontal louvers until the desired Up/Down direction is
obtained. Move the Lever(s) from side to side until the desired Left/Right direction is obtained.
