MODES OF OPERATION, FUNCTIONS AND FEATURES
COOL
Cools, dehumidifies and filters the room air. Maintains desired room temperature.
HEAT
Heats and filters the room air. Maintains desired room temperature.
AUTO COOL/HEAT
Provided in certain models, not to be used in portable air conditioners with electric heaters.
DRY
Dehumidifies and softly cools the room air. In DRY Mode, the air conditioner operates with
increased dehumidifying power. This function is recommended for use when the temperature is
rather low, but the humidity is high.
FAN
Circulates and filters the room air. Maintains constant air movement in the room
AUTO FAN
The air conditioner automatically selects the FAN, in accordance with the temperature of the
room. When starting this operation, the unit operates at high fan speed. As the room air
approaches the desired temperature, the fan switches to a lower speed for quieter operation.
| FEEL
Switches the temperature sensing point to the place where the remote control is located. This
function is designed to provide a personalized environment by transmitting the temperature
control command from the location next to you. Communication between the Remote Control
and the unit is done via infrared signal. Therefore, when using this function, the Remote Control
should always be aimed directly at the air conditioner, without any obstructions.
TIMER
Real time control and display, automatically turns the air conditioner ON and OFF, according to
the time of day setting. This ensures comfortable conditions when returning home, without
wasting electricity; it turns off the air conditioner, automatically, when sleeping.
English 7
SLEEP
Designed to create comfortable sleeping conditions. When in COOLING mode, the temperature
rises one degree centigrade above the set-point after each consecutive hour for up to three
hours from the start of the mode. The rise in temperature prevents the sense of over-cooling
while sleeping (when your body is resting). In HEATING mode the reverse occurs; the air
conditioner lowers the temperature one degree every hour. When in SLEEP mode, the air
conditioner will be automatically turned off after seven hours. The result is a more comfortable
and invigorating sleep, which leaves you feeling fresh and energetic in the morning.
VERTICAL AIR SWING (OPTIONAL)
Automatic swing of air supply in a vertical direction. The flaps automatically move in upward and
downward directions to disperse the conditioned air evenly throughout the room.
AIR DIRECTION POSITIONING (OPTIONAL)
Manual positioning of the air flaps to provide the desirable air flow angle.
ROOM TEMPERATURE
Measures and displays the room temperature.
FILTER AND WATER OVERFLOW INDICATION (see indicator C on figure 10)
Filter indicator on the indoor unit display is turned on when the filter requires cleaning. After
cleaning and reinstalling the filter, the system should be reset. When the indicator is blinking, it
indicates that the water tank is full of water and needs to be drained.
BUZZER INDICATOR
A soft buzzer will sound from the indoor unit display to indicate that a command sent by the
remote control has been accepted and stored in the unit's memory. The user may easily cancel
this feature from the display panel.
ON-UNIT OPERATION (see buttons E and D on figure 10)
The air conditioner can be turned on or off directly from the indoor unit display panel, without the
use of the remote control.
3-MIN. DELAYED RE-START
The compressor is protected by a three-minute delayed restart function.
MEMORY
The microprocessor retains the last data entry, whether or not the unit is plugged in. Therefore,
when the unit restarts after a power disruption or failure, it will resume operation in the same
mode as before the power disruption.
STORED SETTINGS
The air conditioner will store all the settings of the operating MODE.

This air conditioner has been manufactured for domestic environments and should not be used for any
other purpose.
Do not obstruct the air conditioner’s air discharge and inlet.
If repair is needed, contact only the nearest authorized service center; unqualified servicing is
dangerous.
This air conditioner is to be used by adults only. Do not allow children to play with it.
Always ground the unit.
Make sure that the unit is installed in a horizontal position.
Before cleaning or performing any maintenance operations, always disconnect the electric power supply
plug from the socket.
Do not place any strain on the power cord when moving the unit.
The air conditioner should not be installed in a place having any combustible gases, oil or sulfur in the
atmosphere, or near any possible sources of heat.
Do not place hot or heavy objects on the air conditioner.
Clean air filter periodically.
The air conditioner should be transported in an upright position. After transporting, wait at least one hour
before switching it on.
Move the unit with caution over carpets and rugs.
Empty the water tank at the end of the day or before moving the unit over carpets and rugs.
In case of damage to the power cord, replacement or repair should be made only by an authorized
technician.
In a fixed installation, the air discharged through the exhaust hose has been removed from the room.
Make sure the room is not airtight. A drop in room pressure could cause irregular operation, which will,
in turn, activate the system’s high temperature protection control.
