Notes about the Exhaust
hose
Your portable air conditioner is designed to exhaust condensate
water that is collected from the air. This water, in either gaseous or
droplet form, will be expelled out the exhaust port of the unit.
Please take this into account when deciding how to vent it.
1. The exhaust hose supplied with the portable air conditioner can
be extended up to approximately 48 inches; however for maximum
efficiency, use the shortest length possible.
2. Try to prevent any kinks or bends in the exhaust hose. Kinks or
bends may trap exhaust air which can radiate heat into the room or
potentially cause the portable air conditioner to overheat and shut
itself off.
3. The exhaust hose supplied with the portable air conditioner has
been specifically designed for this air conditioner. Do not lengthen
the hose by adding additional hoses or attachments. Do not replace
it with any other hose.
Do not lengthen the
exhaust hose by adding
additional hoses or
attachments.
Warning: Longer hoses are not recommended.
The exhaust hose must be installed or removed in accordance
with the usage modes:
A: You must install the exhaust hose if the unit is in Cooling Mode.
B: You must remove the exhaust hose if the unit is in Fan Mode or
Dehumidify mode.
Note: the exhaust hose may be compressed or extended according
to your installation requirements; however, it is recommended to
keep the exhaust hose length at a minimum.

Draining the Unit
The unit will need to be drained if set to dehumidify mode. When the
portable air conditioner is in cooling mode, it will remove moisture from
the air. The condensed water from the air will be collected in an internal
reservoir and will be evaporated and exhausted out of the exhaust hose.
However, in very humid conditions, the internal reservoir may fill
completely. This causes the air conditioner to turn off to avoid overflowing
the internal reservoir. The unit will beep 8 times and the LCD will show a
“P1” error code on the Control Panel if the reservoir is full of water. The
fan motor will continue to run, but the air conditioner/ dehumidifier will
stop running.
Direct drainage
For continuous use you can connect a drain hose to the upper drain port
of the portable air conditioner.
1. Remove the rubber drain plug from the upper drain port.
2. Connect a drain hose to the upper drain port. (Some models may have
a threaded valve for a garden hose. You may need to purchase an
adapter.) The portable air conditioner will now drain through the drain
hose. Please note that this unit has no drain pump; all water will drain
with gravity only, i.e., only “downhill.”
Manual Drain
You may need to manually drain the unit if your unit stops running and
displays a “P1” error.
1. Roll the unit to a location suitable for draining.
2. Remove the lower drain plug and allow the unit to drain completely.
3. Insert the lower drain plug to the lower drain port and restart the unit.

itself in its last used mode/settings once power is restored. The compressor will
restart after 3 minutes.
Cooling Mode
NOTE: The exhaust hose
must be used in Cooling
mode in order to cool a room.
Dehumidifying Mode
Cooling mode cools and dehumidifies the air. If the ambient temperature drops
below the temperature you selected, the compressor turns off and the unit
functions with the fan only. When the temperature rises above the temperature
you selected, the compressor turns on again.

NOTES: While in Dehumidifying mode, you must manually drain the water from the unit. Additionally, the
ambient temperature in the room will probably rise by a few degrees. You will not be able to change the
thermostat temperature while in Dehumidifying Mode. Keep windows and doors closed for the best
dehumidification performance.
Automatic Mode
When the portable air conditioner is set to auto mode, it will automatically select
cooling or fan only operation depending on what temperature you have selected
and what the room temperature is near the unit. You cannot change the fan
speed.

13
Normal Sounds
Your new portable air conditioner may make sounds that are not familiar
to you. Most of the sounds that are made are normal. Hard surfaces like
the floor, walls can make the sounds seem louder than they actually are.
The following describes the kinds of sounds that might be new to you and
what may be making them.
 The compressor may make a pulsating or high-pitched sound.
 Water running from the evaporator to the water bin may make a
splashing sound.
 You may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing.
 You will hear fan noise from the exhaust and front vents.
Energy Saving Guide
Read and follow the guide below to get the best performance and
efficiency from your portable air conditioner:
 Do not cover the air outlet (exhaust) while in use.
 Do not place the unit in front of curtains or drapes- to ensure they do
not obstruct the air intake.
 Minimize the length of the exhaust hose.
 Make sure the exhaust hose is as straight as possible and avoid kinks
or bends.
 Keep curtains, blinds or drapes closed during the sunniest part of the
day and close all windows and doors.
 Use the timer to operate the unit before it is needed. For example, set
the timer to turn on the unit in cooling mode for 3 or more hours to
cool the room before you arrive. You may want to operate the unit all
day if you live in a warmer climate.
 Minimize the heat sources (direct sunlight, computers, servers,
