TROUBLESHOOTING
Before calling for service, try the suggestions below
to see whether you can solve your problem without
outside help.
Electrical Shock Hazard.
Plug the appliance into an electrical outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result
in death, fire, or electrical shock.
Air conditioner will not operate
• The power supply cord is unplugged.
Plug the appliance into a grounded electrical outlet.
See “Electrical Requirements.”
• Time-delay fuse or circuit breaker of the wrong
capacity is being used. Replace with a time-delay fuse
or circuit breaker of the correct capacity. See
“Electrical Requirements.”
• A household fuse has blown, or a circuit breaker
has tripped. Replace the fuse, or reset the circuit
breaker. See “Electrical Requirements.”
• The Power button has not been pressed. Press
POWER.
• The local power has failed. Wait for power to be
restored.
Air conditioner blows fuses or trips circuit breakers
• Too many appliances are being used on the same
circuit. Unplug or relocate appliances that share the
same circuit.
• You are trying to restart the air conditioner too
soon after turning off air conditioner. Wait at least
3 minutes after turning off air conditioner before trying
to restart the air conditioner.
• You have changed modes. Wait at least 3 minutes
after turning off air conditioner before trying to restart
the air conditioner.
Air conditioner seems to run too much
• Is there a door or window open? Keep doors and
windows closed.
• The current air conditioner replaced an older
model. The use of more efficient components may
cause the air conditioner to run longer than an older
model, but the total energy consumption will be less.
Newer air conditioners do not emit the “blast” of cold
air you may be accustomed to from older units, but this
is not an indication of lesser cooling capacity or
efficiency. Refer to the efficiency rating (EER) and
capacity rating (in Btu/h) marked on the air conditioner.
• The air conditioner is in a heavily occupied room, or
heatproducing appliances are in use in the room.
Use exhaust vent fans while cooking or bathing and try not
to use heatproducing appliances during the hottest part of
the day Portable air conditioners are designed as
supplemental cooling to local areas within a room. A
higher capacity air conditioner may be required,
depending on the size of the room being cooled.
Air conditioner runs for a short time only, but room
is not cool
• Set temperature is close to room temperature.
Lower set temperature. See “Portable Air Conditioner
Use.”
Air conditioner runs, but does not cool
• The filter is dirty or obstructed by debris. Clean
the filter.
• Air outlet is blocked. Clear air outlet.
• Set temperature is too high. Lower set
temperature.
Air conditioner cycles on and off too much
• The air conditioner is not properly sized for your
room.
Check the cooling capabilities of your portable air
conditioner. Portable air conditioners are designed as
supplemental cooling to local areas within a room.
• The filter is dirty or obstructed by debris. Clean the
filter.
• There is excessive heat or moisture (open container
cooking, showers, etc.) in the room. Use a fan to
exhaust heat or moisture from the room. Try not to
use heatproducing appliances during the hottest part of
the day.
• The louvers are blocked. Install the air conditioner in a
location where the louvers are free from curtains,
blinds, furniture, etc.
• The outside temperature is below 16°C (61°F). Do not
try to operate your air conditioner in the cooling mode
when the outside temperature is below 16°C (61°F).
ASSISTANCE OR SERVICE
Before calling for assistance or service, please check “Troubleshooting.” It may save you the cost of a service call. If
you still need help, follow the instructions below.
When calling, please know the purchase date and the complete model and serial number of your appliance. This
information will help us to better respond to your request.
