WELCOME TO EFFICIENT HOME
COOLING COMFORT
should familiarize yourself with the product, model, and
serial numbers listed on each rating plate.
Congratulations on your excellent choice and sound investment in home cooling comfort!
Your new air conditioning unit represents both the latest in
engineering development and the culmination of many
years of experience from one of the most reputable manufacturers of comfort systems.
Your new unit is among the most energy-efficient and reliable air conditioning products available today. To assure its
dependability, spend just a few minutes with this booklet
now. Learn about the operation of your air conditioner, and
the small amount of maintenance it takes to keep it operating at its peak efficiency.
With minimal care, your new air conditioner will provide
you and your family with cool comfort—both now and for
years to come.
IMPORTANT FACTS
To better protect your investment and to eliminate unnecessary service calls, familiarize yourself with the following
facts:
• Your air conditioning system should never be operated
without a clean air filter properly installed. Plan to inspect the
filter periodically. A clogged air filter will increase operating
costs and shorten the life of the unit.
• Supply-air and return-air registers should not be blocked.
Drapes, furniture, and toys are some of the items commonly
found obstructing grilles. Restricted airflow lessens the
unit’s efficiency and life span.
• The outdoor unit must have unrestricted airflow. Do not
cover the unit, lean anything against it, or stand upon it. Do
not allow grass clippings, leaves, or other debris to accumulate around or on top of the unit. Maintain a 12-in. minimum
clearance between the outdoor unit and tall grass, vines,
shrubs, etc.
• Your multipurpose indoor thermostat is the control center
for your air conditioning system. You should familiarize yourself with its proper operation. Attempting to control the system by other means—for instance, switching the electrical
supply power ON and OFF—may cause damage to the unit.
• Thermostat “jiggling” causes rapid-cycling, which is potentially damaging to the compressor. Do not move the temperature selector on the thermostat for any reason for at least 5
minutes after the compressor has shut off.
• You may find that you can maintain greater personal comfort by running the fan continuously. “Air pockets” can form
due to the structure of the house, placement of registers, etc.
These pockets may be too cool or warm for your liking. Continuous fan operation minimizes any temperature differences. Also, systems equipped with electronic air cleaners and/
or humidifiers offer the added benefits of having the air continuously cleaned year-round, and humidified during the
winter season.
• Your air conditioner will remove humidity from your home
during the cooling season. After a few minutes of operation,
you should be able to see water trickle from the condensate
drain of the cooling coil. Check this occasionally to be sure
the drain system is not clogged. Of course, don’t expect to
see much drainage if you live in a very dry environment.
! WARNING
Improper installation, adjustment, alteration, service, maintenance or use can cause explosion,
fire, electrical shock, or other conditions which
may cause personal injury or property damage.
Consult a qualified installer, service agency or
your distributor or branch for information or assistance. The qualified installer or agency must
use factory-authorized kits or accessories when
modifying this product.
YOUR COMFORT SYSTEM
Identifying Your System
Take the time to familiarize yourself with the type of system
you have. This knowledge will be of use in understanding
the basic operation of your new air conditioner.
The split-system type has an indoor and an outdoor unit,
each of which contains a coil. These units are interconnected by refrigerant tubes. (See Fig. 1.)
Each unit has a rating plate affixed to it which provides necessary information for specific identification of a unit. You
OPERATING YOUR AIR CONDITIONER
The operation of your air conditioning system is controlled
by the indoor thermostat. You simply adjust the thermostat
and it maintains the indoor temperature at the level you
select. Most thermostats have 3 controls: the temperature
control selector, FAN switch and SYSTEM switch.
The temperature control selector is a dial or lever that
allows you to establish the degree of temperature that you
wish to maintain for your personal comfort. Some thermostats possess 2 temperature control selectors: 1 for setting
the temperature desired during the cooling cycle, and 1 to
set the heating operation temperature. Typical settings are
78°F for cooling and 68°F for heating.
The FAN switch offers 2 options for controlling the blower:
AUTO and ON. When set to AUTO, the blower will run only

HEATING CYCLE
With the SYSTEM switch of your indoor thermostat set to
the HEAT position, the heating section of your home comfort system will operate until room temperature is raised to
the level you have selected. Of course, the heating unit will
have to operate for longer periods to maintain a comfortable
environment on cooler days and nights than on moderate
ones.
Refer to your furnace User’s Manual for specific information on heating operation.
while the thermostat operates the cooling or heating section. When the FAN switch is set at the ON position, the
blower will run continuously—regardless of whether the
cooling or heating section is operating.
Typically, the SYSTEM switch on your thermostat offers
the following selections: COOL, OFF, and HEAT. Your thermostat may also have a fourth selection, AUTO. Neither the
cooling or heating section will operate when the SYSTEM
switch is set at the OFF position. With the SYSTEM switch
set at COOL, the cooling section of your comfort system will
operate when the indoor temperature rises above the level
that you wish to maintain. With the SYSTEM switch set at
the HEAT position, the heating section will operate automatically when the indoor temperature falls below the level
that you have selected.
The AUTO selection found on some thermostats provides
for automatic changeover between cooling and heating
cycles. With the SYSTEM switch set in the AUTO position,
the cooling section will operate when the indoor temperature rises above the thermostat cooling temperature setting, or the heating section will operate when the indoor
temperature drops below the thermostat setting for the
heating cycle.
PERFORMING ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
With the proper maintenance and care, your air conditioning unit will operate economically and dependably. Maintenance can be accomplished easily by referring to the
following directions. However, before performing maintenance, consider these important safety precautions:
• DISCONNECT ALL ELECTRICAL POWER TO THE AIR
CONDITIONER BEFORE REMOVING ACCESS PANELS
TO PERFORM MAINTENANCE. Disconnect power to both
the indoor and outdoor units. NOTE: THERE MAY BE
MORE THAN 1 ELECTRICAL DISCONNECT SWITCH.
• ALTHOUGH SPECIAL CARE HAS BEEN TAKEN TO
MINIMIZE SHARP EDGES IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF
YOUR UNIT, BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL WHEN HANDLING PARTS OR REACHING INTO THE UNIT.
COOLING CYCLE
When operating in the cooling cycle, your air conditioner
will run until the indoor temperature is lowered to the level
you have selected. On extremely hot days, your conditioner
will run for longer periods at a time and have shorter “off”
periods than on moderate days.
The following are typical conditions that add extra heat
and/or humidity to your home and force your cooling unit
to work longer to keep your home comfortable:
• Entrance doors are frequently opened and closed
• Laundry appliances are being operated
• A shower is running
• More than the usual number of people are present in the
home
• More than the normal number of electric lights are in use
• Drapes are open on the sunny side of the home
CHECK THE AIR FILTER
A dirty air filter will cause excessive strain on the compressor and blower motor. This can cause the components to
overheat and automatically shut down. In the extreme, the
components will fail and need to be replaced. To avoid
inefficient or failed operation of your unit, CHECK THE
FILTER(S) EVERY 3 TO 4 WEEKS. Replace filter(s) when
necessary, or clean the filter(s) if you have the reusable
type.
Disposable filters should be replaced by similar, new filters
of the same dimensions.
Reusable, permanent filters should be washed in a solution of cold water and mild detergent, then rinsed and thoroughly dried. THE FILTER MUST BE COMPLETELY DRY
BEFORE BEING REINSTALLED. To avoid prolonged
shutdown of your unit while a filter is drying, you should
3
sive to most metals. Although your new unit is made out of
galvanized metal and is protected by top-grade paint, you
should take the precaution of additional maintenance which
consists of periodically washing the unit. By washing all
exposed surfaces and coil approximately every 3 months,
you will be adding additional life to your unit. Consult your
installing contractor for proper intervals/procedures for
your geographic area or service contact.
UNIT SUPPORT
Your split-system outdoor unit should be maintained at a level position. If its support should shift or settle so that the unit
is no longer level, you should correct the condition. Relevel
it promptly to assure condensate drainage out of the unit. If
you notice that water or ice collects beneath the unit,
arrange for it to be drained away from the unit.
Fig. 4—Main Electrical Disconnect
have an extra filter on hand. This would allow you to rotate
between the 2 with minimal downtime for your comfort system. Extra filters may be purchased from your dealer.
There are no filters in the outdoor unit of a split-system. If
your indoor unit is a gas or oil furnace, refer to your furnace
User’s Manual for filter location and procedures for replacement or cleaning.
If your system includes an indoor fan coil unit, the filter may
be located in the unit where it connects with the return-air
duct or plenum. (See Fig. 5.) Remove the filter cover plate
by sliding latches toward center of plate. Lift filter to clear
lower flange. Filter is spring-loaded and will “pop out”. Reinstall filter, being certain to secure filter behind lower flange.
When reinstalling cover plate, secure plate behind upper
flange then slide tabs outward.
The indoor fan coil unit may be located in the attic. In this
instance the filter could be located behind the return air
grille. Access the filter by removing 2 screws from return
air grille.
BEFORE YOU REQUEST A “SERVICE CALL”
BEFORE YOU CALL FOR SERVICE, CHECK FOR
THESE EASILY SOLVED PROBLEMS:
• Check the indoor and outdoor disconnect switches. Verify
that circuit breakers are ON or that fuses have not blown.
• Check for sufficient airflow. Check the air filter(s) for any
accumulations of dirt. Check for blocked return-air or supply-air grilles. Be sure grilles are open and unobstructed.
• Check the settings on your indoor thermostat. If you
desire cooling, see that the temperature control selector is
set below room temperature and the SYSTEM switch is on
the COOL or AUTO position. If you require warmth, be sure
the temperature control selector is set above room temperature and the SYSTEM switch is at HEAT or AUTO. The FAN
switch should be set at ON for continuous blower operation
or AUTO if you wish blower to function only while the unit is
operating.
If your comfort system still fails to operate, contact your servicing dealer for troubleshooting and repairs. Specify your
apparent problem, and state the model and serial numbers
of your equipment. (You should have them recorded on
Page 6 of this booklet.) With this information, your dealer
may be able to offer helpful suggestions over the phone or
save valuable time through knowledgeable preparation for
the service call.
INDOOR COIL
If the split-system coil has only been operated with a clean
filter in place, it should require minimal cleaning. You may
use a vacuum cleaner and soft brush attachment to remove
any accumulation of dust from the top and underside of the
finned coil surface. However, only perform this maintenance when the coil is completely dry.
If you cannot get the coil clean by this method, call your
dealer for service. It may be necessary to clean the coil with
a detergent solution and rinse it with water. This could
require the removal of the coil. You should not attempt this
yourself.
OUTDOOR COIL
If grass clippings, leaves, shrubbery, and debris are kept
away from the outdoor unit, minimal care should be sufficient to keep the system functioning properly. For proper
drainage, debris must be removed periodically from the
base pan. However, if the outdoor coil becomes dirty, use a
brush or vacuum cleaner and soft brush attachment to clean
the exterior surface. If dirt is deep in the coil, contact your
dealer for service. The outdoor fan motor may have to be
disconnected and the top panel removed to gain access to
the coil for thorough cleaning. Do not attempt this yourself.
OUTDOOR COIL—SEA COAST
If your unit is located near the ocean, special maintenance
is required. Ocean mist/breeze carries salt, which is corro-

REGULAR DEALER MAINTENANCE
and line should be inspected at this time. Service should
include cleaning if required.
• A check of all electrical wiring and connections.
• A check for secure physical connections of individual components within units.
• Operational check of the air conditioning system to determine actual working condition. Necessary repair and/or
adjustment should be performed at this time.
Your servicing dealer may offer an economical service contract that covers seasonal inspections. Ask for further
details.
In addition to the routine maintenance that you perform, your
home comfort system should be
inspected regularly by a properly
trained service technician. The
inspection (preferably each year,
but at least every other year)
should include the following:
• Routine inspection of air filter(s). Replacement or cleaning
as required.
• Inspection and cleaning of the blower wheel, housing, and
motor.
• Inspection and, if required, cleaning of indoor and outdoor
coils.
• Inspection of the indoor coil drain pan, plus the primary
and secondary drain lines. If supplied, the auxiliary drain pan
