IMPORTANT NOTE TO THE SERVICER

Read this manual and familiarize yourself with the specific items which must be adhered to before attempting to service this unit. The precautions listed in this manual should not supersede existing practices but should be considered as supplemental information.

Transportation Damage

All units are securely packed in shipping containers approved by the National Safe Transit Association. The carton should be checked upon arrival for external damage. If damage is found, immediately make a written request for inspection by the carrier’s agent.

In the event of damage:

1. Note on the delivery receipt any visible damage to shipment or container.

2. Notify carrier promptly and request an inspection.

3. File the claim with the following supporting documents within the six month statute of limitations.

a. Original Bill of Lading, certified copy, or indemnity bond.

b. Original paid freight bill or indemnity.

c. Original invoice or certified copy, showing trade and other discounts or reductions.

d. Copy of the inspection report issued by carrier’s representative at the time damage is reported to the carrier.

The carrier is responsible for making prompt inspection of damage and for a thorough investigation of each claim. The distributor or manufacturer will not accept claims from dealers for transportation damage.

Unpacking The Unit

1. Cut the carton banding and open the carton.

2. Remove the literature, hardware pack, upper styrofoam shipping blocks, and styrofoam corner posts.

3. Remove the front assembly.

4. Lift the unit from the remaining carton.

5. Dispose of the cardboard and styrofoam at an approved

Recycle Center. Check all contents for damaged or missing parts. In case of concealed damage, notify the carrier as soon as possible—preferably within 5 days.

Refer to step 3 of the Transportation Damage section if damage or missing parts are noted.

Operating Instructions

ADDITIONAL THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Now that you have mastered the operating procedure, here are more features in your control that you should know.

?

?

?

?

The Remote Control will operate all the control panel features, follow the same instructions.

!

The "Cool "circuit has an automati c 3 minute time delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping. The fan will continue to run during this time.

!

The control will maintain any set temperature between 60F and 90F degrees (cooling), 55F and 80F (heating).

The control is capable of displaying temperature in degrees Fahrenheit or degrees Celsius. To convert from one to the other, press and hold the Up and Down Temperature Selection Pads at the same time for 3 seconds.

9

COMPRESSOR

The compressor is hermetically sealed, permanently lubricated and requires no additional oiling.

FRONT PANEL AND GRILLE

The front panel and grille can be cleaned with a mild soap or detergent. Do not use hydrocarbon-based cleaners (e.g.

acetone, benzene, naphtha, gasoline, etc.) to clean the front panel or grille. Use care when cleaning the control area. Do not use an excessively wet cleaning cloth.

SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE

To achieve continuing top performance and high efficiency, a regular cleaning/inspection schedule must be established.

Maintaining this schedule can be accomplished by either a local maintenance staff or an authorized servicer and must follow the instructions described in this manual.

• If the unit is operated in a dusty climate, dust may collect in the basepan and clog the condenser coil. It is advisable to remove the unit from the sleeve and thoroughly clean the basepan and condenser coil on a periodic basis.

• If the unit is installed ocean side or in a corrosive atmosphere, its life may be greatly reduced by the corrosive environment. Under these conditions, the unit should be removed from the sleeve and completely cleaned once a year. At that time any scratches or blisters on the painted surfaces should be sanded and repainted.

OUTDOOR COIL CLEANING

The coils on the outdoor side of the air conditioner should be checked regularly. For cleaning outside coil, remove the 6 screws that mount the condenser coil top cover to condenser shroud.

Normal Operating Sounds and Conditions

POPPING OR GURGLING SOUNDS

This sound is the refrigerant traveling through the lines. This is a normal sound which may be heard for a few seconds after the unit shuts off.

WATER TRICKLING SOUNDS

This sound is produced by the water as it is picked up and run over the coils. This procedure improves the efficiency of the unit and helps with water removal.

WATER DRIPPING

Water will collect in the basepan during high humidity days.

STARTING DELAY

You may notice a short delay in the startup if you try to restart the unit too soon after turning it off or if you adjust the thermostat right after the compressor has shut off. This delay protects the compressor.

Obtaining Service

In the unlikely event this unit requires repair or servicing beyond what is covered in this manual, contact an authorized service organization.

To obtain an authorized servicer, contact your sales representative or agency.
