Starting Your Air Conditioner—Rotary Control
Models Without Power Saver
Exhaust Control (on some models)
Push the Exhaust control CLOSED for maximum continuous
cooling. Pull the Exhaust control OPEN to allow you to draw stale
or smoky air from the room.
■ Open—pull to exhaust room air to the outside
■
Closed—push to circulate room air
Models With Power Saver
NOTE: The Exhaust control will function only when the Fan
Speed control is operating.
Fan Speed
1. Remove clear protective film from front panel badge (on
some models).
2. Set exhaust control. See “Exhaust Control (on some
models).”
3. Select the fan speed. See “Fan Speed.”
4. Select temperature. See “Temperature.”
Set FAN SPEED to the desired setting. When the air conditioner
is operating at Low Cool, High Cool, or Turbo Cool, the fan
circulates air continuously.
■ Turbo Cool—for maximum cooling
■
High Cool—for normal cooling
■
Low Cool—for sleeping comfort
■
Fan Only—to move air continuously without cooling
NOTE: Fan runs on Turbo speed only.
■
Power Saver (on some models)—fan runs only when cooling
is needed.
Because the fan does not circulate the room air continuously,
less energy is used, but the room air is not circulated as
often. Use Power Saver when you are asleep or away from
home.
NOTE: Fan runs on Low speed only.

Temperature
Turn the TEMPERATURE control to a mid-setting. Adjust the air
conditioner's performance by turning the Temperature control
clockwise for maximum cooling. For less cooling, turn the
TEMPERATURE control counterclockwise. Experiment to find the
setting that suits you best.
Normal Sounds
When your air conditioner is operating normally, you may hear
sounds such as:
■ Droplets of water hitting the condenser, causing a pinging or
clicking sound. The water droplets help cool the condenser.
■ Air movement from the fan.
■ Clicks from the thermostat cycle.
■ Vibrations or noise due to poor wall or window construction.
■ A high-pitched hum or pulsating noise caused by the modern
high-efficiency compressor cycling on and off.

AIR CONDITIONER CARE
Your new air conditioner is designed to give you many years of
dependable service. This section tells you how to clean and care
for your air conditioner properly. Call your local authorized dealer
for an annual checkup. Remember… the cost of this service call
is your responsibility.
3. Use a vacuum cleaner to clean air filter. If air filter is very dirty,
wash it in warm water with a mild detergent. Do not wash air
filter in the dishwasher or use any chemical cleaners. Air dry
filter completely before replacing to ensure maximum
efficiency.
4. Replace air filter by sliding filter back into either side of unit.
Cleaning the Air Filter
The air filter is removable for easy cleaning. A clean filter helps
remove dust, lint, and other particles from the air and is important
for best cooling and operating efficiency. Check the filter every
2 weeks to see whether it needs cleaning.
NOTE: Do not operate the air conditioner without the filter in
place.
1. Turn off air conditioner.
2. Remove air filter by sliding filter out from either side of unit.
Cleaning the Front Panel
1. Turn off air conditioner.
2. Remove the air filter and clean it separately. See “Cleaning
the Air Filter.”
3. Wipe the front panel with a soft, damp cloth.
4. Air dry front panel completely.
Repairing Paint Damage
Check once or twice a year for paint damage. This is very
important, especially in areas near oceans or where rust is a
problem. If needed, touch up with a good grade enamel paint.
NOTE: To reduce paint damage during the winter, install a heavyduty cover over air conditioner cabinet. For information on
ordering a heavy-duty cover, see “Accessories.”
A
Annual Maintenance
A. Filter may be removed from either side.
20
Your air conditioner needs annual maintenance to help ensure
steady, top performance throughout the year. Call your local
authorized dealer to schedule an annual checkup. The expense
of an annual inspection is your responsibility.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Before calling for service, try the suggestions below to see whether you can solve your problem without outside help.

button will pop out) the power supply cord. Press and
release RESET (listen for click; Reset button will latch and
remain in) to resume operation.
■
Electrical overloading, overheating, cord pinching or
aging can trip (Reset button will pop out) the power
supply cord. After correcting the problem, press and release
RESET (listen for click; Reset button will latch and remain in)
to resume operation.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,

POWER button or turn the Fan Speed control to an active
setting.
■
The local power has failed. Wait for power to be restored.
NOTE: A damaged power supply cord must be replaced with a
new power supply cord obtained from the product manufacturer
and must not be repaired.
Air conditioner seems to run too much
■
The current air conditioner replaced an older model. The
use of more efficient components may cause the air
conditioner to run longer than an older model, but the total
energy consumption will be less. Newer air conditioners do
not emit the “blast” of cold air you may be accustomed to
from older units, but this is not an indication of lesser cooling
capacity or efficiency. Refer to the efficiency rating (EER) and
capacity rating (in BTU/hr.) marked on the air conditioner.
■
The air conditioner is in a heavily occupied room, or heatproducing appliances are in use in the room. Use exhaust
vent fans while cooking or bathing and try not to use heatproducing appliances during the hottest part of the day. A
higher capacity air conditioner may be required, depending
on the size of the room being cooled.
21
■
Air conditioner cycles on and off too much or does not
cool
■
The Mode is set to Power Saver (on some models). Use
Power Saver only when you are asleep or away from home,
since the fan does not circulate the room air continuously.
Use Low, High or Turbo for your best comfort.
■
The air conditioner is not properly sized for your room.
Check the cooling capabilities of your room air conditioner.
Room air conditioners are not designed to cool multiple
rooms.
■
The filter is dirty or obstructed by debris. Clean the filter.
■
The inside evaporator and outside condenser coils are
dirty or obstructed by debris. See “Annual Maintenance.”
■
There is excessive heat or moisture (open container
cooking, showers, etc.) in the room. Use a fan to exhaust
heat or moisture from the room. Try not to use heatproducing appliances during the hottest part of the day.
■
The louvers are blocked. Install the air conditioner in a
location where the louvers are free from curtains, blinds,
furniture, etc.
■
The outside temperature is below 65°F (18°C). Do not try to
operate your air conditioner in the cooling mode when the
outside temperature is below 65°F (18°C).
■
■
■
Temperature on display does not match room
temperature
■
When the compressor and fan motor turn off during
Power Saver mode, or after you turn off the unit, a lower
temperature reading than the actual room temperature
may be displayed for a short period of time. This lower
temperature reading is caused by the temperature sensor
being located close to the cold evaporator coil. The actual
room temperature will be displayed within a few minutes.
Water drips from cabinet into your house
■
22
The temperature of the room you are trying to cool is
extremely hot. Allow extra time for the air conditioner to cool
off a very hot room.
Windows or doors to the outside are open. Close all
windows and doors.
The Exhaust control is set to OPEN (on some models).
Push the Exhaust control CLOSED for maximum cooling.
Depending on model, the Temp/Time or Temperature
control is not at a cool enough setting. Adjust the TEMP/
TIME control to a cooler setting by pressing the minus button
to reduce the temperature, or adjust the Temperature control
to a cooler setting by turning the knob clockwise. Set the Fan
Speed control to Turbo or Turbo Cool.
The air conditioner is not properly leveled. The air
conditioner should slope slightly downward toward the
outside. Level the air conditioner to provide a downward
slope toward the outside to ensure proper drainage. See the

Accessories
You can order the following accessories for your air conditioner from your local authorized dealer or by calling 1-800-253-1301 from
anywhere in the U.S.A.
Replacement air filters
A good, clean air filter is important for best cooling with least
energy consumption. Your air filter should be cleaned regularly.
See “Cleaning the Air Filter” for cleaning instructions. We suggest
you replace your air filter once a year.
For a new electrostatic air filter, order Part Number 1187197.
Airborne particles are attracted to an electrostatic air filter and
remain attached to it until they are rinsed away. For a new
antimicrobial air filter, order Part Number 1187389. In addition to
providing all the benefits of an electrostatic air filter, an
antimicrobial air filter also inhibits the growth of odor-causing
bacteria, fungi, mold and mildew on the filter. Both of these air
filters are sized to fit your air conditioner.
Heavy-duty cover
If you decide to leave your air conditioner installed during the
winter, a heavy-duty cover will help protect your air conditioner
and reduce drafts. The outdoor cover protects against cold drafts
through the unit's air passages and protects the cabinet from
snow, rain, sleet, rust, and dust.
For a heavy-duty outdoor cover sized to fit your air conditioner,
order Part Number 484069.
For a heavy-duty indoor cover sized to fit your air conditioner,
order Part Number 4392941.
