Front Grille and Filter Removal
The front contains a removable grille that provides easy
access to the air filter. To clean the filter use one of the
following methods for filter removal:
Heat Controller, Inc.
Optional Air Filter Installation
Remove air filter from plastic bag. Insert three tabs
on right side of filter into three slots on filter frame. Carefully
bow middle of filter until two tabs on filter can be inserted into
two slots on filter frame. Relax bow.
METHOD ONE
Grasp filter handle and slide filter out of unit.
Reinstall air filter and grille by reversing removal procedure.
Front Grille and Cabinet Cleaning
Grille and cabinet may be cleaned with warm water and mild
soap or detergent. Cleaning and polishing compounds are
not recommended, as they may damage plastic surfaces.
Air Filter Cleaning
A dirty air filter reduces operating efficiency of unit. Filter
should be inspected at least once every week during operation. Clean filter with vacuum cleaner or wash in warm water
and mild detergent. Filter should be thoroughly dried before
replacing in unit. Do not operate unit without filter in place.
Fan Motor Care
The fan motor is permanently lubricated for long life. There is
no need to oil the motor.
Slide-out Chassis Removal from Outer Case
1. Remove front grille by sliding grille to left and pulling out.
2. Remove air filter by sliding to left.
3. Remove four screws holding plastic front to unit and
remove front.
4. If the unit has a screw holding the basepan clip to the
chassis, remove the screw.

Owner’s Manual
Drain Cup Installation and Use (on some models)
Your air conditioner uses a system where the water removed
from the indoor air (condensate) is channeled to the outdoor
side of the unit. The outdoor fan blade has a “slinger” ring
attached to it that dips into the water and slings the water onto
the outdoor coil surface. This is the sound of water you hear
during normal operation. The water quickly evaporates on
this warm surface and improves the efficiency of your air
conditioner. In normal conditions the unit can evaporate the
water as fast as it is removed from the indoor air.
However, in very humid conditions excess amounts of water
may drip off the unit chassis. If this proves to be a problem,
install the condensate drain cup included with the unit to
route excess water where it would not be a problem (see
illustration below).
To install, remove the unit chassis from the outer case. Insert
the condensate drain cup through the recessed ½” hole on
the right side bottom flange of the outer case. Once inserted,
place a ½” diameter hose or tube on the drain cup bottom
spout. The hose allows you to route where you want the
excess water to go. Reinsert the unit chassis into the outer
case. The unit basepan overflow hole will be positioned
directly above the drain cup and will catch any water that
might run out.
CHASSIS
NOTE: Basepan clip is shipped in plastic bag with mounting
screw and condensate drain cup. Install clip after reinserting
chassis into outer case to prevent accidental chassis removal.
General Operating Instructions
While operation of all units is similar, controls vary slightly
from model to model. Operating Controls section shows
control panel of unit purchased and gives detailed information
about operation of controls.
Initial Start-Up and Cooling
Select the highest fan speed and set temperature control to
its coldest position. When the desired temperature is
reached, slowly move the temperature control toward a
warmer setting until the compressor shuts off. The thermostat will then cycle the compressor on and off to maintain this
selected temperature. Adjust the fan speed for desired air
circulation.

Changing Airflow Direction Baffles
Airflow on unit may be diverted left or right from center by
baffles. Upward and downward air discharge is provided by
tilting louvers. Adjust baffles and tilt louvers for desired
airflow pattern.
Use emergency switch only when heat pump fails to
provide adequate heat. Cause of heat pump malfunction should be determined by authorized servicer. Cost
of operating unit will increase when emergency heat
switch is engaged.
To access and engage emergency switch:
1. Remove front grille, air filter, and plastic front, as described in Installation Instructions.
2. Remove basepan clip.
3. Slide chassis out of case about two inches.
4. Locate access hole for emergency switch above label on
right front of control box.
5. To start emergency heat, insert flathead screwdriver into
slot and turn counterclockwise until switch-stop is reached.
Airflow Around Unit
Check the indoor grille and outdoor louvers for obstructions to
airflow. Do not block the airflow to and from the unit. If air is
obstructed and/or deflected back into the unit, the air
conditioner’s compressor may cycle on and off rapidly. This
could damage your unit.
6. Return chassis to case.
7. Replace basepan clip, plastic front, air filter, and front
grille.

Controls the fan.
ON—The fan will cycle on and off with the
compressor. This results in wider variations of
room temperature and humidity. Normally used
when the room is unoccupied. NOTE: The fan may
continue to run for a short time after the compressor cycles off.
DELAY
OFF—The fan runs all the time, while the
compressor cycles on and off.
Fan Only Mode
Use the Fan Only Mode at Low, Med or High fan
speed to provide air circulation and filtering
without cooling. Since fan only settings do not
provide cooling, a Set temperature cannot be
entered. The room temperature will appear
in the display.
Remote Control
� To ensure proper operation, aim the remote
control at the signal receiver on the air
conditioner.
� The remote control signal has a range of
up to 20 feet.
� Make sure nothing is between the air conditioner
and the remote control that could block the
signal.
� Make sure batteries are fresh
fresh and installed
correctly as indicated on the remote control.
NOTE: Auto Fan Speed cannot be used when in the
Fan Only Mode.
Heat Mode (On some models)
Use the Heat mode at Low, Med, High or Auto Fan
Speed for heating. Use the Temperature Increase
/Decrease pads to set the desired temperature
between 61°F and 86°F in 1°F increments.
Cool Mode
Auto Fan Speed
Use the Cool mode at Low, Med, High or Auto Fan
Speed for cooling. Use the Temperature Increase �
/Decrease � pads to set the desired temperature
between 61°F and 86°F in 1°F increments.
Set to Auto fan speed for the fan speed to automatically set to the speed needed to provide optimum comfort settings with the set temperature.
If the room needs more cooling, the fan speed
will automatically increase. If the room needs less
cooling, the fan speed will automatically decrease.
The compressor will cycle on and off to keep
the room at the set level of comfort.
Set the thermostat at a lower number and the indoor
air will become cooler. Set the thermostat at a higher
number and the indoor air will become warmer.
NOTE: Auto Fan Speed cannot be used when in the
Fan Only Mode.
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.
Power Outage Recovery Feature
In the case of a power outage or interruption, the
unit will automatically re-start in the settings last
used after the power is restored. If the Timer/Delay0.5-24hr
feature was set, it will resume countdown. You may
need to set a new time if desired.
This time delay is required to protect the compressor.
