5.
Plug in the power plug properly.
Use a dedicated circuit. Overloading the line could create a fire hazard.
Do not use an extension cord. See page 10 for more details.
Do not start/stop operation by plugging/unplugging the power cord.
If the power cord is damaged and requires replacement, have an Authorized
Servicer install an exact replacement part.
ENGLISH
Preparing for operation
1. Being exposed to direct airflow for an extended period of time could be
hazardous to your health. Do not expose occupants, pets, or plants to direct
airflow for extended periods of time.
2. Due to the possibility of oxygen deficiency, ventilate the room when used
together with stoves or other heating devices.
3. Do not use this air conditioner for non-specified special purposes (e.g.
preserving precision devices, food, pets, plants, and art objects). Such usage
could damage the items.
4. The air conditioner is a consumer comfort appliance, not a precision climate
control system.
Cleaning and maintenance
1. Do not touch the metal parts of the unit when removing the filter. Injuries can
occur when handling sharp metal edges.
2. Do not use water to clean inside the air conditioner. Exposure to water can
destroy the insulation, leading to possible electric shock.
3. When cleaning the unit, first make sure that the power and breaker are turned
off. The fan rotates at a very high speed during operation. There is a
possibility of injury if the unit’s power is accidentally triggered on while
cleaning inner parts of the unit.
Service
For repair and maintenance, contact an Authorized Service Center. See the
warranty page for details or call (800) 243-0000. Have your model number and

Electrical Safety
WARNING: This appliance must be properly grounded.
ENGLISH
The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug.
To minimize the risk of electric shock, use the plug with a standard three-slot
grounding wall power outlet. If the power outlet does not include a grounding slot,
have a qualified electrician replace the outlet before you use the room air
conditioner.
WARNING: Changing the outlet without making the appropriate wiring
changes will create an unsafe condition that could result in fire or
electrical shock. Refer all such work to a licensed and qualified
electrician.
Ensure proper ground
exists before use
WARNING: Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from the power
plug.
WARNING: Attaching the adapter ground terminal to the wall
receptacle cover screw does not ground the appliance unless the
cover screw is metal and not insulated, and the wall receptacle is
grounded through the house wiring.
WARNING: If you have any doubt whether the air conditioner is
properly grounded, have the wall receptacle and circuit checked by a
qualified electrician.
Owner’s Manual 9
PTAC DIRECT SALES (877) 454-7822
Preferred method
Electrical Safety
Temporary Use of an Adapter
We strongly discourage the use of an adapter due to potential safety hazards.
For temporary connections, use only a UL-listed adapter, available from most
local hardware stores. Ensure that the large slot in the adapter is aligned with
the large slot in the receptacle for a proper polarity connection.
To disconnect the power cord from the adapter, use one hand on each to avoid
damaging the ground terminal. Avoid frequently unplugging the power cord as
this can lead to eventual ground terminal damage.
Temporary method
Adapter Plug
Metal Screw
WARNING: Never use the appliance with a broken adapter.
Temporary Use of an Extension Cord
We strongly discourage the use of an extension cord due to potential safety
hazards. For temporary situations, use only CSA certified and UL listed 3-wire
grounded extension cords, rated 15 A, 125 V.

Ventilation
The ventilation lever is located in the right of the air discharge.
The ventilation lever must be in the CLOSE position in order to
maintain the best cooling conditions.
When fresh air is necessary in the room, set the ventilation lever to
the OPEN position.
The damper is opened and room air is exhausted outside.

• VERTICAL AIR-DIRECTION CONTROL
The vertical air direction is adjusted by moving the horizontal
louver.

Care and Maintenance
Care and Maintenance
TURN THE AIR CONDITIONER OFF AND REMOVE THE PLUG FROM THE POWER OUTLET.
Air Filter Cleaning
The air filter should be checked at least twice a month to see if cleaning is necessary.
Trapped particles in the filter will build up and block the airflow. This reduces the cooling
capacity and also causes an accumulation of frost on the cooling coils.
If the filter becomes turn or damaged you should replace
immediately. Replacement filters are available from your
salesperson, dealer, and the authorized customer service
centers.
1. Open the inlet grille downward by pulling out the top of the
inlet grille.
2. Remove the air filter from the front grille assembly by
pulling the air filter up slightly.
3. Wash the filter using lukewarm water below 40°C (104°F).
How to Attach Front Grille to Cabinet
The front grille can be removed for cleaning or to check the model and serial numbers.
For your safety, you should attach the front grille as the following procedures.
1. Pull down front grille from the cabinet top.
2. Push front grille’s tips toward the cabinet in
order to insert front grille’s tabs into the
cabinet.

3. Open the inlet grille.
4. Tighten the screw through the front grille into
the plate of control box.
5. Close inlet grille.

INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
INSTALLATION HARDWARE
ENGLISH
Remove packing sheet from the back of the sleeve, and
packing corner and blue tape from the air conditioner.
Installation
CAUTION: We strongly recommend
the removal of the old wall sleeve and
the installation of a new LGE Wall Sleeve.
If you decide to keep the existing wall sleeve,
you have to redirect the louvers at the back of the
wall sleeve illustration. The use of pliers is
recommended. If you DO NOT redirect, you run
the risk of poor performance or product failure.
This is not covered under the terms of the LGE
warranty.
• Pick a location which will allow the conditioned air
to blow into the area you want. Good installation
with special attention to the proper position of the
unit will lessen the chance that service will be
needed.
Tips
All wall sleeves used to mount the new
Air Conditioner must be in sound structural
condition and have a rear grille that securely
attaches to sleeve, or rear flange that serves as a
stop for the Air Conditioner,

the outdoor side of the unit.
• The fan may run even when the compressor does not.
