LCDI POWER CORD AND PLUG
This air conditioner is equipped with an LCDI (Leakage Current Detection and Interruption) power cord
and plug as required by US National Electric Code 440.65. This cord consists of a length of shielded flexible cord with no termination on the load side and a LCDI attachment plug on the line side.
The LCDI power cord and plug will remove the supply source via electrical disconnect (circuit trip) if the
nominal current leakage between the cord shield and either load conductor exceeds a predetermined
value. The cord will remain de-energized until the devise has been manually reset. This is intended to reduce the risk of a fire in the power cord or combustible materials nearby. The cord shields are not grounded
and they must be considered a shock hazards if exposed. The cord shield must not be connected to ground
or to any exposed metal.
The test and reset buttons on the LCDI Plug are used to check if the plug is functioning properly. To test:
1. Plug power cord into wall outlet. The LED light will turn on.
2. Press TEST Button, circuit should trip, cutting power to the air conditioner. When this occurs,
the LED light will turn off.
3. Press RESET button to restore power to the machine. Once power is restored, the LED light
will turn on again.
If test button is pressed and unit can still be turned on, current leakage has been detected. Do not use the
air conditioner or attempt to reset the LCDI Plug. Contact Soleus Air Customer Service for troubleshooting
recommendations.

standard double-hung window with a window width
between 23” and 36” (584 mm - 914 mm).
2. The air conditioner can be installed without the
accordion panels to fit in a narrow window opening.
See the window dimensions.
3. The Lower Sash (the lower part of the window that
moves up and down) must allow for 14.5” (368mm) of
vertical clearance when open. (See FIG. 1).
4. All supporting parts must be secured to firm wood,
masonry, or metal.
5. The electrical outlet must be within reach of the power
cord.

product box when not in use for an extended period of time.
When handling the unit, be careful to avoid cuts from
the sharp metal edges and aluminum fins on the front
and rear coils.

3. Place the curtain lock between the curtain extensions
and the window sill, drive long screws through the
lock and into the sill as shown below.
4. Slide the free end of the accordion panel into the side
panel of the air conditioner. Do this for each side. The
flange for securing the curtain into the window sill will
be facing the room side when installed.
4. Secure the left and right flanges on end bottom side
of the panel with long screws.
5. Drive long screws through upper frame holes into
window sash.
6. Attach the sash lock to the place between the upper
and lower sashes and secure it with long screws.
Each side use 2 long screws.
7. Cut the foam seal to the window width and insert the
sash seal between the glass and the window to prevent air and insects from getting into the room.
8. For added insulation, the insert strip can be inserted
between the air conditioner and window sill. This is
optional.

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION (CONT.)
IF AC is Blocked by a Storm Window
A storm window frame will not allow the air conditioner to
tilt properly which in turn will keep it from draining properly.
To adjust for this, attach a board or piece of wood to the
sill. The board or wood piece should have a depth of at
least 1 1/2”. Make sure the board or piece of wood is approximately 1/2” higher than the storm window frame. This
will allow the air conditioner to tilt enough for proper drainage. (See FIG. 4).

USING YOUR AIR CONDITIONER
•
Freezing Conditions: This is a cooling only air
•
conditioner. It is not designed for freezing outdoor
conditions. It must not be used in freezing outdoor
conditions.
•
Remote Control: To ensure proper operation
when using the remote control, aim the remote
directly at the signal receiver on the air conditioner.
•
Loss of Power Protection: If power to the air
conditioner is lost or interrupted, the air conditioner will automatically re-start in the setting last
used prior to power loss. Timer will be cancelled
when power is lost or interrupted. You may need
to set a new time if desired.
•
Air Direction: Use the lever on the front air vents
to adjust the direction of the airflow. You can direct the airflow left, right, up or down. The lever is
located on the lower left and right side of the air
vent.
• The remote control has a signal range up to
20 feet.
• Make sure nothing is blocking the remote con-
trol signal from being received by the air conditioner.
• Make sure the batteries are installed correctly
and still have power.
•
Cooling Mode: Use the COOL mode at Low, Medium, or High Fan speed when cooling is needed.
Use the temperature ▲/▼ buttons to set the desired temperature between 61°F and 90°F.
•
Once the temperature is set, the compressor
will cycle on and off to keep the room
temperature at the set temperature level. The
lower the set thermostat temperature, the
cooler the room will become. The higher the
set thermostat temperature, the warmer the
room will become.
•
For Normal Cooling - Set the Mode to Cool
and the Fan to High or Med with the
termperature set in the middle.
•
For Maximum Cooling - Set the Mode to Cool
and the Fan to High with a lower set
temperature.
•
For Quieter & Nighttime Cooling - Set the
Mode to Cool and the Fan to Low with the
temperature set in the middle.
NOTE: If the air conditioner is off and is then
turned on while set to a Cool setting or if
turned from a fan setting to a Cool setting, it
may take approximately 3 minutes for the
compressor to start and cooling to begin.
•
Fan Only Mode: Use Fan Only mode at Low,
Med, or High fan speed to provide air circulation
and filtering without cooling. Since fan only setting
do not provide cooling, a Set temperature cannot
be entered. The room temperature will appear in
the display.
Energy Saver Mode - Controls the Fan
On - The fan will cycle on and off with the
compressor. This results in winder variations of room
temperature and humidity. Normally used with the
room is unoccupied. NOTE: The fan may continue to
run for a short time after the compressor cycles off.
Off - The fan runs all the time in fan or cooling mode.

CARE AND CLEANING
Clean your air conditioner to keep it looking new
and to minimize dust build up.
Cabinet Cleaning
To clean the air conditioner cabinet:
Unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or
a fire hazard. The cabinet and front panel of
the air conditioner may be dusted with an oilfree cloth or washed with a cloth dampened in
a solution of warm water and mild liquid soap.
Rinse thoroughly with a damp cloth and wipe
dry.
•
Air Filter Cleaning
The air filter should be checked at least once
every month to see if it needs cleaning. Trapped
particles and dust can build up in the filter and
may decrease airflow as well as cause the
cooling coils to accumulate frost. To clean the air
•
filter:
1. Remove the filter by pulling down on the indents of the filter door on the front of the unit.
(See FIG. 5)
2. Wash the filter using liquid dish soap and
warm water. Rinse the filter thoroughly. Gently shake the filter to remove excess water.
3. Let the filter dry completely before placing it
into the air conditioner.
4. If you do not wish to wash the filter, you may
vacuum the filter to remove the dust and
other particles.
Never use harsh cleaners, wax or polish on
the cabinet front.
Be sure to wring excess water from the cloth
before wiping around the controls. Excess
water in or around the controls may cause
damage to the air conditioner.
•
Winter Storage
To store the air conditioner when it is not in use
for an extended period of time, remove it carefully from the window according to the installation
instructions and cover it with plastic or place it in
the original box.
FIG. 5
Wear and Tear
To minimize wear and tear on the air conditioner, always wait at least 3 minutes before
changing modes. This will help prevent the
compressor from overheating and the circuit
breaker from tripping.
