Safety
Precautions
Prior to Operation
Preparing for operation
1 Contact an installation specialist for installation.
2 Plug in the power plug properly.
3 Do not use a damaged or non-standard power cord.
4 Do not share the same outlet with other appliances
5 Do not use an extension cord.
6 Do not start/stop operation by plugging/unplugging the power cord.
Usage
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). Usage in such a manner could harm such property.
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.

far (about 56°)
If the Air Filter remains full of dust, the air
flow will decrease and the cooling capacity
will be reduced, possibly damaging the unit.
1. Pull the inlet grille forward
and pull out the air filter. (Fig. 1)
2. Wash the Air Filter in warm 104°F(40°C) water. (Fig. 2)
Be sure to shake off all the water before
replacing the filter.
• CLEANING THE AIR CONDITIONER
The front grille and Inlet grille may be wiped with a
cloth dampened in a mild detergent solution. (Fig. 3)
The cabinet may be washed with mild soap or
detergent and lukewarm water, then polished with
Liquid Wax for Appliances.
To ensure continued peak efficiency, the condenser
coils(outside of unit) should be checked
periodically and cleaned if clogged with soot or
dirt from the atmosphere.
• HOW TO SECURE THE DRAIN PIPE
In humid weather, excess water may cause the BASE
PAN to overflow. To drain the water, remove the
DRAIN CAP and secure the DRAIN PIPE to the rear
hole of the BASE PAN Fig.4.

Select the Best Location
To prevent vibration and noise, make sure the unit is
installed securely and firmly.
B
Install the unit where the sunlight does not shine
directly on the unit.
C
There should be no obstacle, such as a
fence or wall, within 50cm from the back of the cabinet
because it will prevent heat radiation of the condenser.
Restriction of outside air will greatly reduce the cooling
efficiency of the air conditioner.
D
Install the unit a little obliquely outward not to leak the
condensed water into the room (about 5 ~ 10mm or 1/4
bubble with level).

Troubleshooting Tips
Save time and money! Review the chart below first and you may not need to call for service.
Normal Operating
• You may hear a pinging noise caused by water being picked up and thrown against the condenser on rainy
days or when the humidity is high. This design feature helps remove moisture and improve efficiency.
• You may hear the thermostat click when the compressor cycles on and off.
• Water will collect in the base pan during high humidity or on rainy days. The water may overflow and drip from
the outdoor side of the unit.
• The fan may run even when the compressor does not.

Possible Causes
What To Do
■ The air conditioner is
unplugged.
• Make sure the air conditioner plug is pushed
completely into the outlet.
■ The fuse is blown/circuit
breaker is tripped.
• Check the house fuse/circuit breaker box and
replace the fuse or reset the breaker.
■ Power failure.
• If power failure occurs, turn the mode control to
Off. When power is restored, wait 3 minutes to
restart the air conditioner to prevent tripping of the
compressor overload.
■ Airflow is restricted.
• Make sure there are no curtains, blinds or furniture
blocking the front of the air conditioner.
■ The THERMOSTAT may
not be set high enough.
• Turn the knob to a higher number. The highest
setting provides maximum cooling.
■ The air filter is dirty.
• Clean the filter at least every 2 weeks.
See the care and maintenance section.
■ The room may have been
hot.
• When the air conditioner is first turned on you need
to allow time for the room to cool down.
■ Cold air is escaping.
• Check for open furnace floor registers and cold air
returns.
• Set the air conditioner's vent to the closed position.
■ Cooling coils have iced up.
• See Air Conditioner Freezing Up below.
■ Ice blocks the air flow and
stops the air conditioner
from cooling the room.
• Set the mode control at the High Fan ( Fan
Only ) or
the High Cool ( High
Cool ) with the thermostat at 1 or 2.
