INTRODUCTION / TECHNICAL DATA
HOW IT WORKS
The Whynter compact CFC-free, lead-free, and energy efficient 12,000 BTU portable air conditioner, helps you stay cool while working with better environmental standards and reducing energy consumption.
This high output portable air conditioner, specially designed to be mobile, can be easily setup in
almost any indoor location and is most commonly used in data closets / server rooms, bedrooms,
classrooms and garages / workshops.
This Whynter ARC-122DHP portable air conditioner features an ECO-FRIENDLY CFC-free
GREEN R-410A refrigerant and lead-free RoHS compliant components.
Operationally, a dual hose portable air conditioner has two main advantages over a single hose
unit. A dual hose portable air conditioner will cool a room faster and will help minimize negative
air pressure situation in the room. If the outside temperature is much higher or more humid than
the room, the intake hose can be detached and the unit will l function as a single hose unit.

WARNING: NEVER OPERATE THE AIR CONDITIONER WITHOUT THE AIR
FILTER
Your Whynter portable air conditioner is equipped with a washable Pre-Filter and an Activated Carbon Filter.
Fig. 1a
The washable Pre-Filter removes large particles such as dust,
pet hair and dander. The Activated Carbon filter is designed to
remove smoke and other odors. It is recommended you replace
the Activated Carbon filter every 2-3 months or as needed. Follow the steps below to install the filters.
1. Pull up the pre-filter frame (Fig. 1a)
Fig. 1b
2. Place the activated carbon filter on the pre-filter frame by
inserting it through the three pins (Fig. 1b)
3. Once the activated carbon filter is secured, insert the assembled filter frame into the unit.
WATER DRAINAGE
The dehumidifying capacity of this unit is 76 pints per day. The patented self-evaporating function of the ARC122DS unit fully exhausts all condensation automatically in most environments when humidity is less than 70%.
Areas with more than 70% humidity, the self-evaporating function can still exhaust about 98% of the moisture
and the remaining 2% of moisture will be collected in the water tank of the air conditioner.
When there is excess water condensation inside the unit, the air conditioner stops running and shows a warning
light (refer to page 8). This warning light indicates that the water condensation needs to be drained using the following procedures:
• Manual drainage (Fig. 2a)
Carefully move the unit to a drain location, remove the bottom drain plug and let the water drain. Replace the
drain plug and plug in unit to resume operation.
• Continuous drainage (Fig. 2b)
Remove the upper drain plug from the back of the unit and install the drain hose (sold separately). Place the
open end of the hose to a drain area. This method is recommended if uninterrupted operation is desired.
• Auto Pump drainage (Fig. 2c) This unit has a condensate pump feature that can pump out (and up) water
through the included drain hose for continuous water removal. Remove the pump drain plug from the back of the
unit and install the drain hose. Place the open end of the hose to a drain area.

5°F of the ambient temperature, the unit runs on fan only mode. This saves energy and prolongs the life of the compressor of the air conditioner.
To set the fan speed, press the FAN button. In cooling mode, the difference in noise level between the 3 fan speeds
is not very noticeable when the compressor is on. Try setting the unit to Fan only mode, you should be able to hear
the difference between high and low fan speed settings.
A dual hose portable air conditioner will cool a room faster and will help minimize negative air pressure situation in
the room. If the outside temperature is much higher or more humid than the room, the intake hose can be covered
with the included cover and it will function like a single hose unit.
DEHUMIDIFYING ONLY MODE
In this mode, the air conditioner only dehumidifies the room, the compressor will activate intermittently depending on
the ambient temperature and the fan speed is set to LOW. To activate this function mode, press the Mode Control
until the Dehumidifying
indicator light comes on. Please note that when switching function mode, there will be an
approximately 3 minute transition time. In dehumidifying mode, do not connect the exhaust hose and let the warm air
return to the room. If room temperature is higher than 77°F, the fan speed can be adjusted. If room temperature is
lower than 77°F, the fan speed is set at Low.
NOTE: When using the Dehumidifying mode, the exhaust and intake hoses should not be vented to the outside. If
the warm air is exhausted to the outside, cooling may occur. Additionally, you must manually drain the water from the
unit.
FAN ONLY MODE
In this mode, only the fan of the air conditioner runs and circulates the air in the room. To activate this function mode,
press the MODE button until the Fan
indicator light comes on. In this function mode, the temperature cannot be
set. Subsequently, set the desired fan speed by pressing the Fan button. Fan Only mode does not require the use of
both exhaust and intake hoses.
