[] INSTALLATION FOR COOLING
FIXED INSTALLATION (see fig. 4, fig 5.)
For fixed installation, a sleeve (1. Fig. 3) should be installed through the wall, partition or
window (Fig. 4). The opening may be located in any convenient spot, providing it is within
reach of the exhaust hose.
Prepare an outlet hole 110 mm in diameter. Apply a waterproof sealant to the sleeve flange
and install it in the opening. Insert the exhaust hose end into the fixed sleeve, make sure
the connection is airtight (See Fig. 5).
WARNING: Make sure the unit is level

PROVISIONAL INSTALLATION
This method of installation does not require a permanent opening in the room. The exhaust
hose is inserted through the gap of a slightly opened door or window. This allows the unit
to be easily moved from room to room and re-installed within minutes.
Fit the window nozzle (4, Fig. 3) on the end of the exhaust hose and insert it through the
opening of a door or a window. Use suction pads (3, Fig. 3) to hold the window in place.
(Fig. 6)
WARNING: Make sure the unit is level

INSTALLATION FOR HEATING
For heating operation the exhaust hose is not required, remove the hose and store it. Use
the sleeve cover (2, Fig. 3) to close the wall opening.
INSTALLATION FOR "DRY" OPERATION
In "dry" operation (a mode giving priority to dehumidification while cooling) the exhaust hose
removes hot and moist air to the outdoors. The method of installation is the same as for
cooling operation.
INSTALLATION FOR DEHUMIDIFICATION
In this mode of operation the exhaust hose should be disconnected. Remove the exhaust
hose and store it.
During the entire dehumidification operation, the unit must be connected to a permanent
drain by means of an extension tube. (See Fig. 7).
NOTE:
DURING A PROLONGED DEHUMIDIFICATION OPERATION
EXPECT A RISE IN ROOM TEMPERATURE.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
Before plugging in check that:
* The power supply and the fuse correspond to the value shown in the specification table.
* The socket and the mains lead correspond to the power requirements of the air
conditioner.
* The socket fits the plug.
* The socket is properly grounded.
THE MANUFACTURER CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE DUE TO
FAILURE IN FOLLOWING NORMAL SAFETY PROCEDURES

Turning on the air conditioner
Turn the selector-switch knob (A) from OFF to any desired position.
Fan only operation (Ventilating)
Turn the selector-switch knob (A) to one of the following positions:
* High fan (A2)
* Low fan (A3)
Cooling operation
Turn the selector-switch knob (A) to one of the following positions:
* High cooling (A4)
* Low cooling (A5)
When the cooling mode is activated, indicator (1 0) will light up. Itis recommended to use
the High-cooling mode (A4) when fast drop in temperature is required, while the
low-cooling mode (A5) should be used for normal-quiet operation to maintain the
selected temperature.
Heating operation
Turn the selector-switch knob (A) to one of the following positions:
* High heating (A6).
* Low heating (A7).
When the heating mode is activated, indicator (11) will light-up.
Selecting the temperature
The desired temperature is selected by turning the temperature control knob (B).
If the temperature in the room is higher than desired, turn knob (B) clockwise to a new
position.
If the temperature is lower than desired, turn knob (B) counterclockwise to a new
position.
“Dry” operation
At high humidity conditions, turn selector-switch (A) to the “dry” position (8) to activate
the dehumidifying mode. Indicators (10), (11) will light up. At this mode, the fan will
switch to low speed, the compressor will run continuously and the temperature will be
regulated automatically by the thermostat, which will switch the heating element ON
and OFF. Select suitable temperature.
NOTE: At extremely high humidity conditions, operating in cooling or “dry”mode, the
water basin may fill up. Indicator (12) will turn-on. At this point the unit will stop. Turn the
unit off, drain the water basin and then restart the unit to resume normal operation. To
drain the water basin, place a pan under the drain tube and remove the drain tube plug
(See Fig. 8).
Figure 8
Dehumidifying operation
Important:
At this mode the exhaust air is discharged into the room.
* The air conditioner must be connected to a permanent drain (See Fig. 7). Turn
selector-switch (A) to activate the “dry” mode. indicators (10), (11) will light up.
In a prolonged dehumidification operation, expecta rise in room temperature.
Turning off the air conditioner
Turn selector-switch (A) to OFF position (A1). The power indicator (9) will remain on.
WARNING: Wait 5 minutes before restarting the cooling or dry modes, or selecting
suitable temperature setting.
English 9
Timer (Optional)
To operate the timer, make sure that the unit is plugged-in and the power indicator
(9) is lit.
When the timer switch (D) is in D1 position, the timer cannotbe operated and the unitis
operated directly by the selector switch (A).
When the timer switch (D) is in D2 position, the air conditioner will be turned OFF; in this
position itcannotbe turned ON neither by switch A nor by the timer.
When the timer switch (D) is in D3 position, the unit will be turned ON and OFF by the
timer.
The timer used in this air-conditioner is a “real time” type and must be preset before
use. To do thatturn the timer wheel clockwise until the number indicating the time of day
matches the timer arrow.
The timer rim consists of 48 switching pins (30 minutes time interval per pin). When all
the pins are pushed down, the unit will not operate. Pulling the pins up will cause the
timer to turn on the unit at the time indicated by the pins.
