Vertical Air-Direction
Fingertip pressure on the bank of horizontal
louvers adjusts the air direction up or down
Operating Instructions
To open the vent, pull the lever toward you.
To close it, push it in.
Care and Maintenance
Grille and Case
Turn the air conditioner off and remove the plug
from the wall outlet before cleaning.
To clean, use water and a mild detergent. Do not
use bleach or abrasives.
Operating Instructions
Air Filter
Ensure the power is off before open the front Grill.
The air filter behind the front grille should be checked and cleaned
at least once every 2 weeks or more often if necessary.
The grille is designed to clean the filter both upward and
downward.
To remove:
Open the inlet grille upward by pulling out the bottom of the
inlet grille or downward by pulling out the top of the inlet grille.
Using the tab, pull up slightly on the filter to release it and pull
it down or up.
Clean the filter with warm, soapy water below 40°C (104°/F).
Rinse and gently shake the water from the filter and let it dry
before replacing it.
CAUTION: DO NOT operate the air conditioner without a filter
because dirt and lint will clog it and reduce
performance.
Drainage
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.
To remove the condensed water, you can install the drain pan as below.
1. Take the drain pan which is located in the air discharge.
2. Install the drain pan to the right corner of the cabinet with 4 screws.

Select the Best Location
Install the unit where the sunlight does not shine directly
on the unit.
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.
Install the unit a little obliquely outward not to leak the
condensed water into the room (about 10 ~ 15mm or 1/4
bubble with level).
CAUTION: All side louvers of the cabinet must remain
exposed to the outside of the structure.
Remove the Air Conditioner From the Case
Remove the 2 shipping screws from the
back of the case.
Slide the air conditioner from the case by
gripping the base pan handle and pulling
forward while bracing the case.
Remove the 2 screws on each side of the
case. Keep these for later use.
Depending upon your model ,the unit sizes are as followes:
WC Chassis :600x380x567 (W X H X D ) mm ,WN chassis 660 x428 x770 (W x H X D ) mm

Troubleshooting Tips
Save time and money! Review the chart below first and
you may not need to call for service.
Normal Operation
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 numidity 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.
Abnormal Operation
Problem
Air conditioner
does not cool as it
should
Air conditioner
freezing up
What To Do
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 OPERATION control
to OFF( O ) . 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.
THERMOSTAT control set
too warm.
Turn the THERMOSTAT knob clockwise to a cooler
setting.
The air filter is dirty.
Clean the filter at least every 2 weeks.
See the operating instructions 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 OPERATION control at fan ( ) or
HIGH cool ( ) with the THERMOSTAT at the warmer
position or the temperature at more than 23°C.
