2. Vacuum the air filter completely.
3. Push the air filter back into place.
• For best conditions, repeat every two weeks.
• If the air filter dries in a confined (or humid) area, odors may generate. If this occurs,
re-clean and dry in a well-ventilated area.
If the air conditioner will not be used for an extended period of time, dry it thoroughly and disconnect from the wall.
There may be internal damage if moisture is left in its components.
1. Before storing the appliance, operate the air conditioner in Fan mode for three to four hours to
dry the air conditioner completely.
2. Upon removing from storage, dry the inner components of the air conditioner again by
running in Fan mode for three to four hours. This helps remove odors which may have
generated from dampness.
