MAINTAINING YOUR AIR CONDITIONER
If the air conditioner will not be used for an extended period of time, dry the air conditioner to maintain it in
best condition.
1. Dry the air conditioner thoroughly by operating in Fan mode for 3 to 4 hours and disconnect
the power plug. There may be internal damage if moisture is left in components.
2. Before using the air conditioner again, dry the inner components of the air conditioner again
by running in Fan mode for 3 to 4 hours. This helps remove odors which may have generated
from dampness.
