IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
WARNING! Risk of electric shock. Can
cause injury or death. For your safety,
the information in this manual must be followed to
minimize the risk of fire, electric shock or personal
injury.
„
Use this appliance only for its intended
purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual.
„
This air conditioner must be properly
installed in accordance with the Installation
Instructions before it is used.
„
Never unplug your air conditioner by pulling
on the power cord. Always grip plug firmly
and pull straight out from the receptacle.
„
Replace immediately all electric service
cords that have become frayed or
otherwise damaged. A damaged power
supply cord must be replaced with a new
power supply cord obtained from the
manufacturer and not repaired. Do not
use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion
damage along its length or at either the
plug or connector end.
„
Turn OFF and unplug your air conditioner
before making any repairs or cleaning.
NOTE: We strongly recommend that any
servicing be performed by a qualified individual.
„
For your safety…do not store or use
combustible materials, gasoline or other
flammable vapors or liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance.
„
All air conditioners contain refrigerants,
which under federal law must be removed
prior to product disposal. If you are getting
rid of an old product with refrigerants, check
with the company handling disposal about
what to do.
HOW TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY
„
Where a 2-prong wall outlet is encountered,
WARNING! Risk of electric shock.
it is your personal responsibility and
Can cause injury or death. This appliance
must be properly grounded. Do not, under any
circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground)
prong from the power cord. For personal safety,
this appliance must be properly grounded.
„
The power cord of this appliance is equipped
with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which mates
with a standard 3-prong (grounding) wall
outlet to minimize the possibility of electric
shock hazard from this appliance.
„
Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a
qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is
properly grounded.
„
Power cord may include a current interrupter
device. A test and reset button is provided
on the plug case. The device should be
tested on a periodic basis by first pressing
the TEST button and then the RESET button.
If the TEST button does not trip or if the
RESET button will not stay engaged,
discontinue use of the air conditioner and
contact a qualified service technician.
2
obligation to have it replaced with a properly
grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
WARNING! Risk of electric shock. Can
cause injury or death.
„
The air conditioner should always be plugged
into its own individual electrical outlet which
has a voltage rating that matches the rating
plate. This provides
the best performance and also prevents
overloading house wiring circuits which
could cause a fire hazard from overheated
wires.
„
See the Installation Instructions, Electrical
Requirements section for specific electrical
connection requirements.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
GEAppliances.com
WARNING!
USE OF EXTENSION CORDS
RISK OF FIRE. Could cause serious injury or
death.
„ DO NOT use an extension cord with this
Built-in Air Conditioner.
„
DO NOT use surge protectors or multi-outlet
adaptors with this Built-in Air Conditioner.
USE OF ADAPTER PLUGS
WARNING! Risk of electric shock. Can
cause injury or death.
„
We strongly recommend against the use of
an adapter plug.
„
If you must use an adapter, where local
codes permit, a temporary connection may
be made to a properly grounded 2-prong
wall outlet by use of a UL-listed adapter
available at most local hardware stores.
„
The larger slot in the adapter must be
aligned with the larger slot in the wall outlet
to provide proper polarity in the connection
of the power cord.
„
When disconnecting the power cord from
the adapter, always hold the adapter in
place with one hand while pulling the power
cord plug with the other hand. If this is not
done, the adapter ground terminal is very
likely to break with repeated use.
„
If the adapter ground terminal breaks, DO
NOT USE the air conditioner until a proper
ground has been established.
„
Attaching the adapter ground terminal to
a wall outlet cover screw does not ground
the appliance unless the cover screw is
metal, not insulated, and the wall outlet
is grounded through the house wiring.
You should have the circuit checked by a
qualified electrician to make sure the outlet
is properly grounded.
READ AND FOLLOW THIS SAFETY INFORMATION CAREFULLY.

Care and cleaning of the air conditioner.
Grille and Case
Turn the air conditioner off and remove the plug
from the wall outlet before cleaning.
To clean, use water and a mild detergent.
Do not use bleach or abrasives.
Outdoor Coils
The coils on the outdoor side of the air conditioner
should be checked regularly.
If they are clogged with dirt or soot they may be
professionally steam cleaned, a service available
through your GE service outlet.
Front Grille

cleaning and to locate the model and serial numbers

reduces cooling, heating
and airflow.
Turn the air conditioner off before cleaning.
The most important thing you can do to maintain the
air conditioner is to clean the filter at least every 30
days. A clogged filter reduces cooling, heating and air
flow.
Keeping the air filter clean will:
replace the air filter:
„ Decrease cost of operation.
Replace the clean filter by pushing it back
into place.
„ Save energy.
„ Prevent clogged heat exchanger coils.
„ Reduce the risk of premature component failure.
To clean the air filters:
„ Vacuum off the heavy soil.
„ Run water through the filters.
„ Dry thoroughly before replacing.
To remove the air filter, on some models:
Carefully pull the tab forward, up and out.
NOTICE: Do not operate the air conditioner
without the filter in place. If a filter becomes torn or
damaged it should be replaced immediately.
Operating without the filter in place or with a damaged
filter will allow dirt and dust to reach
the indoor coil and reduce the cooling, heating, airflow
and efficiency of the unit.
Replacement filters are available from your salesperson,
GE dealer, GE Service and Parts Center or authorized
Customer Care® servicers.

WARNING!
Risk of electric shock. Can
cause injury or death. This appliance must be
properly grounded. Where a 2-prong wall outlet
is encountered, it is your responsibility and
obligation to have it replaced with a properly
grounded 3-prong outlet.
Some models require a 115/120-volt a.c.,
60-Hz grounded outlet protected with a
15-amp time delay fuse or circuit breaker.
The 3-prong grounding plug minimizes the possibility of
electric shock hazard. If the wall outlet you plan to use
is only a 2-prong outlet, it is your responsibility to have it
replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove
the third (ground) prong from the power cord.
Do not change the plug on the power cord of this
air conditioner.
Aluminum house wiring may present special
