INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS for Your Air Conditioner Through-the-wall Installation Instructions 1 Unpack l 2 accessory (see Figure conditioner. . 3) parts shipped before installing with cabinet your air Pick the right wall. First, decide what room(s) vou want to cool. Then choose a wall that will allow the air-conditioned air to flow freely and directly into the room(s) you want cooled. Remember, it’s difficult to move air around corners. Choose a location that’s also near an electrical outlet. (Refer to the ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENT pages for type of receptacle and wiring needed.) Do DO not use an extension cord. CAUTION: NOT LOCATE AIR CONDITIONER WHERE PLASTIC CABINET FRONT WILL BE EXPOSED TO A HEAT SOURCE THAT RAISES THE SURFACE TEMPERATURE IN EXCESS OF 120°F.) CAUTION: l l l Be sure air conditioner does not fall out of window during installation. Handle the air conditioner with care. Watch out for the sharp metal fins on the front and rear coils. Do not use the collected water for drinking purposes. It is not sanitary. 3 . Remove hardboard panel by removing the two screws holding hardboard panel to front of cabinet (see Figure 4). Release panel by inserting finger in service-cord opening on left side of cabinet and pushing outward. Install cabinet using installation hardboard panel. 6 instructions on 4 l 5 .

You can adjust the air conditioner’s performance by resetting the thermostat control to a higher number for maximum cooling. Lower the number setting for less cooling. You will need to experiment to find the setting which suits you best. The louvers in the grille area at the top of the air conditioner control the direction of the cooled air. Move the tabs at the bottom of the grille to the right, left or straight ahead. Simply move the levers in the direction you want the air to go (see Figure 8). Cleaning Air Conditioner Filter Figure 8 The filter is cleanable. A clean filter helps remove dust, lint and other particles from the air. Check every two weeks to see if filter needs cleaning. 1 2 .

If you decide to go ahead, follow these steps: Oiling of the Fan Motor 2 l REMOVE UNIT FROM CABINET. Wrap the motor, electrical control box and electrical terminals box in plastic film and make sure no water or other liquid gets inside any of these parts. It could damage the insulation and cause serious trouble. 1 l Oil the fan motor per instructions on the motor. To add oil, pull out the oil hole plug at each end of the motor. (See Figure 11). Carefully clean and hose out the base, coils and condensate pans. Clean at least once a year or more often, if the condenser coils and pans collect dirt, sand, leaves, insects or algae. Also, clean if you detect an odor from the air conditioner. While the cabinet is open, this is a good time to oil the fan motor. 30 40 Remove plastic film from motor and electrical parts. An easy to use one-ounce capsule of especially recommended oil (Part No. 10943) can be orderd Replace unit in cabinet. NOTE: It’s a good idea to wait 24 hours before starting the unit again. This allows time for all areas to dry out. The water from rainfall or from normal operation does not harm these components. COOLING 2 3 l . from your dealer, or use SAE #20 non-detergent oil.

If you need service or assistance, we suggest you follow these five steps: 1. Before calling for assistance Performance problems often result from little things you can find and fix yourself without tools of any kind. Air 1. 2. 3. 4. conditioner won’t run Is unit plugged into a live circuit with proper voltage? Is switch turned on? Is thermostat set correctly? Have you checked your home’s main fuses or circuit breaker box? 5. Has the time-delay fuse blown? 6. Has the local power failed? Unit blows fuses: 1. Are time-delay fuses being used? 2. Is an extension cord being used? (Do not use an extension cord to run your air conditioner.) 3. Are you waiting two minutes after turning cooling circuit off before trying to restart unit? Unit turns on and off, or does not cool room: 1. Is filter clean? 2. Are coils clean (both evaporator [inside] and condenser [outside])? 3. Is there excessive moisture or heat (open vessel cooking, showers, etc.)? 4. Try setting fan to higher speed. 5. Try setting thermostat to a cooler setting. Operating sounds: 1. When your room air conditioner is operating normally, you will hear sounds such as: l Droplets of water hitting the condenser, causing a “pinging” or “clickina” sound. Water droolets help to cool the condenser. l Air movement from the fan, especially on high fan speed setting. l Clicks from the thermostat cycle. 2. Sounds also may be caused by house construction - such as vibration of the unit due to wall construction or unsteady window mounting area. 3Y. If you need assistance*. . .
