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
2. Press TEST Button, circuit should trip, cutting power to the air conditioner
3. Press RESET button for use
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.

EXHAUST HOSES
WINDOW KIT
ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION
INSTALLATION
When the unit is operating as an air conditioner, heater, or dehumidifier, the unit draws in fresh outdoor air and exhausts
hot air (in AC or dehumidifier mode) or cool air (in Heat mode) out of the room to complete the air exchange. When the
unit is operating in fan mode, no outdoor air exchange takes place. The window kit and exhaust hose do not need to be
installed when the unit is used as a fan.
NOTE: The supplied window kit can be installed in sliding windows and sliding glass doors up to 8 ft. long
(approximate length).
MOUNTING THE EXHAUST HOSES
• Choose a suitable location, near a grounded electrical outlet and suitable window or door. Remove
packaging and locate components.
• Extend both ends of the exhaust hoses approximately 6 inches.
• Screw the window kit adapter onto one end of the exhaust hose clockwise. Screw the hose adapter onto
the other end of the exhaust hose clockwise. Repeat on the other exhaust hose.
• Remove outlet covers from the back of the unit by screwing them counter-clockwise, then lifting up.
• Mount the exhaust hoses onto the back of the unit by locking the hose adapters into place.

Emergency Condensate Holding Tank
When the room temperature is low and the indoor humidity is high, the air conditioner may not be able to
evaporate some of the moisture fast enough. When this happens, the water will accumulate in an emergency
condensate tank inside the unit. Once the emergency condensate tank is full, the unit will automatically shut
off and the “
” will appear on the control panel display. To empty the condensate tank, unscrew the screw
plug at the bottom back of the unit. You will need a small pan, approximately 1” high to catch the water
coming out of the condensate tank. Once the condensate tank is drained, the unit will begin working within a
few minutes. The emergency condensate tank holds approximately 1.5 Liters of water. Another option is to
purchase a small hose from a hardware store that can fit around the 5/8” drain plug on the back of the unit and
drain the unit into a gravity drain or larger pan for continuous drainage.
To resume operation quickly, empty the water container according to the following steps:
1. Turn the unit off. Do not move the unit when the water container is full.
2. Place the drain pan accessory under the drainage port at the back of the unit.
3. Remove the screw plug from the drain hole. The condensate water will drain out automatically. When the
drain pan is full, screw the screw plug back onto the drainage hole to stop the water flow. Empty the drain
pan. Repeat until all the water is emptied.
Once the water container has been emptied, screw the plug back onto the drain hole. Do not allow the
water to drip continuously into the drain pan, as it might easily overflow.
