READ BEFORE INSTALLING UNIT
INSTALLATION WARNINGS AND CAUTION
Carefully read the installation manual before beginning.
Follow each step as shown.
Observe all local, state, and national electrical codes and by qualified, licensed, authorized personnel only.
Pay attention to danger and safety notices.
To avoid risk of personal injury, property damage, or product damage due to the weight of this device and sharp edges that may
be exposed:
Air conditioners covered in this manual pose an excessive weight hazard. Two or more people are needed to move and install
the unit. Wear protective gloves whenever lifting or carrying the unit. AVOID the sharp metal fins of front and rear coils. To
prevent injury or strain, use proper lifting and carrying techniques when moving unit.
Carefully inspect location where air conditioner will be installed. Be sure it will support the weight of the unit overan extended
period of time.
Handle air conditioner with care.
Make sure air conditioner does not fall during installation.
If a new electrical outlet is required, have the outlet installed by a qualified electrician before installing unit.
NOTE: DO NOT USE ANY SCREWS OTHER THAN THOSE SPECIFIED HERE.

1. Check window opening size: the mounting parts
furnished with this air conditioner are made to install in
a wooden sill double-hung window. The standard parts
are for window dimensions listed above. Open sash to
a minimum of 19-1/4"(489mm). (FIG.1)
2. Check condition of window: all wood parts of window
must be in good shape and able to firmly hold the needed
screws. If not, make repairs before installing unit.
3. Check your storm windows: If your storm window
frame does not allow the clearance required, correct by
adding a piece of wood as shown (FIG.2), or by removing
storm window while room air conditioner is being installed.

Thru-The-Wall Installation
NOTE:
Consult local building codes prior to installation, or a qualified carpenter.

This air conditioner slides out from its cabinet, so that it can be installed through an outside wall as explained
below.

8.25"
NOTE:
IMPORTANT: Side louvers must never be blocked.
All parts needed for Thru-The-Wall Installation are provided, except a wood frame, shims, and 10 wood screws
(#10-1" long minimum). Select a wall surface that:
1. Does not support major structural loads such as the frame construction at ends of windows, and under
truss-bearing points, etc.
2. Does not have plumbing or wiring inside.
3. Is near existing electrical outlets, or where another outlet can be installed.
4. Faces to the area to be cooled, and it is not blocked.
5. Allows unblocked airflow from rear sides and end (outside) of installed air conditioner.
2
Prepare Wall
1. Prepare wall in frame construction (including brick and stucco veneer). Working from inside the room, find wall stud
nearest the center of area where air conditioner will be installed (by sounding wall, or by magnetically finding nails).
2. Cut out a hole on each side of center stud.
3. Measure between inside edges of every other stud as shown in FIG.1. Carefully measure and cut an opening with
the following dimensions depending on your model. See FIG.1 and FIG.2.
WIDTH “X” = inside model width plus twice the thickness of framing material used.
HEIGHT “Y” = inside model height plus twice the thickness of framing material used.

4. Build a wooden frame with the INSIDE dimensions of your model listed above. (Measure twice remember...) Frame
depth should be the same as wall thickness. Fill in the space from the opending to the studs with wood spacers, as
shown.
5. Nail frame to spacers to spacers with front flush with dry wall.
NOTE:
If wall thickness is 8-1/2" or more, add alumimum flashing over bottom of frame opening to assure no water can
enter area between inner and outer wall.

Prepare and Install Cabinet
1. Slide air conditioner from cabinet; refer back to Step 1 of Window Mounting.
2. Place cabinet into opening with bottom rail resting firmly on bottom board of wooden frame.
3. Position cabinet to achieve proper downward tilt for water removal. Unit must tilt back about 1/8" to 1/4" for proper
water drainage. (See FIG.5 below.)
4. Secure bottom rail to wood frame with two large wood screws 1" (2.5 cm) long using the two holes in the bottom of
the channel resting on frame. (See FIG.6 following)

5. Screw or nail cabinet to wooden frame using shims as needed to eliminate cabinet distortion. See Fig. 8. Remember
to maintain proper tilt as described in Step 3.

6. Install air conditioner into cabinet by following all steps in Step 9 of Window Mounting.
OPTIONAL: Caulking and installation of trim on interior wall may be done. You can buy wood from your local lumber or
hardware supply. On the outside, caulk opendings around top and sides of cabinet, and all sides of wood sleeve to the
opening.
NOTE:
See Step 5, Item 4 of Window Mounting Instructions for bottom rail seal location.
Masonry Construction
1. Cut or build a wall opening in the masonry wall similar to the frame construction (refer to Step 2 of Thru-the-Wall
Installation for a wall thickness greater than 8-1/2″).
2. Secure cabinet in place using masonry nails, or the right masonry anchor screws. (Another way to secure cabinet is
to build a frame in the masonry wall such as the one shown in Fig. 3 of Step 2 Prepare Wall. Securely anchor frame to
masonry wall. This way gives very good louver clearance on either side of cabinet.)
3. Install a lintel to support masonry wall above cabinet. Existing holes in cabinet can be used and/or additions holes
can be drilled to fasten cabinet at various positions. Be sure that side louver clearance is in accordance with Step 1
Select Wall Location.
4. Install exterior cabinet support brackets as shown in Step 3 of Thru-the-Wall Installation. Caulk or flash if needed, to
provide a weather-tight seal around top and sides of cabinet.
5. To complete installation, apply wood trim molding around room side projection of cabinet.
