Slide the unit from the cabinet by gripping
the base pan handle and pulling forward
while bracing the cabinet.
Remove all obstacles from the rear of the unit.
There must be at least 50cm (20in.) of cleared
space around the rear of the unit. Obstacles
restricting the airflow may reduce the cooling
efficiency of the unit.
The unit should be installed with a slight tilt
towards the outside (approx. 3°) to allow
condensed water to drain. (About 10~15mm

2
Prepare the hole in the wall so that the
bottom of the cabinet is well supported,
the top has minimum clearace and the
air inlet louveres have clearance as
shown. Holes from the outside through
to the cavity should be sealed. The
cabinet should slope down towards
the rear by about 5 mm to allow water
formed during operation to drain.
Install the cabinet into the wall and
secure. Ensure the foam seals are not
damaged. Flash, seal or fill gaps around
the inside and outside to provide
satisfactory appearance and protection
against the weather, insects and rodents.

Delay ON/OFF Timer
Delay ON - When the air conditioner is off,
set it to automatically turn on from 1 to 24
hours later, at its previous mode and fan
settings.
Delay OFF - When the air conditioner is on,
set it to automatically turn off from 1 to 24

Operation Mode
Press the Mode button to cycle between
4 types of air conditioner operation: Cool /
Energy Saver / Fan Only / Dry.
Cool - This mode is ideal on hot days to
cool and dehumidify the room quickly. Use
the Temp
buttons to set the desired
room temperature and use the Fan Speed
button to set the desired fan circulation
speed.
Energy Saver - In this mode the
compressor and fan turn off when the set
temperature is achieved. Approximately
every 3 minutes the fan turns on to allow
the unit sensor to accurately determine if
more cooling is needed.
Fan Only - In this mode the fan circulates
air but the compressor does not run. Use
the Fan Speed button to set fan speed to
High, Medium or Low. In this mode, you
cannot adjust the set temperature.
Dry - This mode is ideal for rainy and
damp days to dehumidify the room rather
removed from the room by the combination
of compressor operation and the fan speed
off once the set temperature is reached.
Fan speed cannot be adjusted in Dry mode.
