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-126MD 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.

the possibility of a malfunction in the cooling system from handling during transportation
SWITCHING ON/OFF THE AIR CONDITIONER
The appliance can be switched ON or OFF by pressing the POWER button on the control panel or the ON/OFF button on the remote control
COOLING MODE
In this mode, the air conditioner cools and dehumidifies the room. To activate this function mode, press the MODE
button until the COOL indicator light comes on. When the cooling mode is set, the compressor will start in approximately 3 minutes. In cooling mode, hot air is exhausted from the outdoor exhaust port and the exhaust hose must be
connected to exhaust out the hot air.
The temperature setting range of this air conditioner is from 62°F / 17°C to 88°F / 30°C. To set the temperature,
press the + or - buttons. This air conditioner has a 5°F temperature cushion which if the set temperature is within 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.
DRY (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 button
until the DRY 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.
AUTOMATIC MODE
When you set the air conditioner in AUTO mode, it will automatically select cooling or fan only operation depending
on the temperature of the room. The fan speed is automatically selected and cannot be changed .To operate the unit
in Auto mode when the unit is on, press the MODE button until the AUTO
indicator light comes on.
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.
