AIR CONDITIONER FEATURES AND OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons, read the important safety instructions before
operating this appliance.
NOTE: If the air conditioner is turned off, wait 3 minutes before restarting. This allows pressure inside the compressor
to equalize. Failure to follow these instructions may result in damage to your unit.
To begin operating the air conditioner, follow these steps:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Set the thermostat to the highest number (coldest setting).
Set the selector control to the HI COOL setting.
Adjust the louver for comfortable airflow.
Once the room has cooled, adjust the thermostat to the setting you find most comfortable.
Make sure that the air flow inside and outside are not obstructed by anything.
NOTE: This air conditioner is designed to be operated under the following conditions:

The controls featured in this manual may be slightly different from yours.
Cool Mode
The desired cool setting is selected by rotating the COOLING knob to the right to
the appropriate location.
“HI COOL” provides maximum cooling effect and airflow
“LOW COOL” provides minimum cooling effect and
airflow
Fan Mode
Rotate the COOLING knob to the left to select your choice of fan speeds for air
circulation (Lo fan or Hi fan)
Note: When in fan mode, the compressor will not run.
Thermostat
The thermostat is used to set the desired room temperature when the unit is
being operated in HI COOL or LO COOL mode.
To set the desired room temperature, rotate the thermostat switch to the desired
setting. After the set temperature is achieved, the air conditioner will
automatically start and stop the compressor in order to maintain the desired set
