OPERATING YOUR UNIT
The operation of your unit is controlled by the indoor temperature
control (thermostat). You simply adjust the thermostat and it
maintains the indoor temperature at the level you select. Most
thermostats of heating and cooling systems have 3 controls: a
temperature control selector, a FAN control, and a SYSTEM or
MODE control. Refer to your thermostat owner’s manual for more
information.
To better protect your investment and to eliminate unnecessary
service calls, familiarize yourself with the following facts:
1. During heat pump heating, increasing the thermostat setting
more than 2_F (1.1_C) may cause the supplemental gas heat
to be turned on for a short period of time to satisfy the
thermostat. Needless use of the supplementary heat reduces
potential energy savings.
2. Ice or frost tends to form on the coil during winter heating
operation. Your heat pump is designed to automatically melt
the ice. When in this defrost cycle, it is normal for steam
or fog to rise from the outdoor unit. Do not be alarmed!
Cooling Mode
With the SYSTEM control set to COOL, your unit will run in
cooling mode until the indoor temperature is lowered to the level
you have selected. On extremely hot days, your unit will run for
longer periods at a time and have shorter “off” periods than on
moderate days.
Heat Pump Heating Mode
begin to freeze on the surface of the coil. If allowed to build up,
this ice would impede airflow across the coil and reduce the
amount of heat absorbed from the outside air. So, to maintain
energy--efficient operation, your heat pump has an automatic
defrost mode.
The defrost mode starts at a preset time interval of 60 minutes,
although, it may be reset to 30, 90 or 120 minutes. Defrost will
start at the preset time only if the ice is sufficient to interfere with
normal heating operation.
After the ice is melted from the coil, or after a maximum of 10
minutes in defrost mode, the unit automatically switches back to
normal heating operation.
Do not be alarmed if steam or fog appears at the outdoor unit
during defrost mode. Water vapor from the melting ice may
condense into a mist in the cold outside air.
During certain weather conditions such as heavy snow and freezing
rain it is not uncommon for ice to build up on the unit grille. This
is normal for these weather conditions. Do not attempt to remove
the ice from the unit grille. This condition will not affect the proper
function of the unit and will clear within a few days.
Emergency Heat Mode
If you should have problems with the heat pump portion of your
system, this mode allows your supplemental gas heating source to
keep your home or office warm until your heat pump can be
serviced.
MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE
This section discusses maintenance that should be performed on
your system. Most maintenance should be performed by your
dealer. You, as the owner, may wish to handle some minor
maintenance for your new unit.
Routine Maintenance
All routine maintenance should be handled by skilled, experienced
personnel. Your dealer can help you establish a standard procedure.
For your safety, keep the unit area clear and free of combustible
materials, gasoline, and other flammable liquids and vapors.
To assure proper functioning of the unit, flow of condenser air
must not be obstructed from reaching the unit. Clearance from the
top of the unit is 48 in. (1219 mm). Clearance of at least 36 in.
(914 mm) is required on sides except the power entry side (42 in.
(1067 mm) clearance) and the duct side (12 in. (305 mm)
minimum clearance). Also, ensure that the return--air duct
connection (s) is physically sound, is sealed to the furnace casing,
and terminates outside the space containing the furnace.
Maintenance and Care for the Equipment Owner
Before performing equipment maintenance
carefully consider the following:
!
With the SYSTEM or MODE control of your indoor thermostat set
to HEAT, your unit will run in heat pump heating mode until room
temperature is raised to the level you have selected. Of course, your
system will run for longer periods to maintain a comfortable
environment on cooler days and nights than on moderate ones.

WARNING
FIRE, EXPLOSION, ELECTRICAL SHOCK AND
CUT HAZARD
Failure to follow this warning could result in personal
injury, death or property damage.
1. Turn off gas supply first, then all electrical power to your
unit and install lock--out tag before servicing or performing maintenance.
2. When removing access panels or performing
maintenance functions inside your unit, be aware of
sharp sheet metal parts and screws. Although special care
is taken to reduce sharp edges to a minimum, be
extremely careful when handling parts or reaching into
the unit. Wear safety glasses, gloves, and appropriate
protective clothing.
Gas Heat Mode
Your heat pump is your primary heating source. Your system is
also equipped with a supplemental gas heating source. On cold
days and nights, your system will automatically turn on the
supplemental heat in order to maintain the level of comfort you
have selected.
When your heat pump needs additional heat to keep you
comfortable, your thermostat will turn on the supplemental gas
heat.

UNIT OPERATION HAZARD
Failure to follow this caution may result in
damage.
property
Never operate your unit without filters in place. An
accumulation of dust and lint on internal parts of your unit
can cause loss of efficiency and blower motor and/or
compressor damage.
The air filter(s) should be checked every 3 or 4 weeks and
changed or cleaned whenever it becomes dirty. Dirty filters
produce excessive stress on the blower motor and can cause the
motor to overheat and shut down.
This unit must have air filters in place before it can be operated.
These filters can be located in one of at least two places. In many
applications, the installer will provide return air filter grilles
mounted on the wall or ceiling of the conditioned structure. In the
instance of filter grilles, the filters can simply be removed from the
grille and replaced.
The other typical application is an accessory filter rack installed
inside the unit itself. The following information is given to assist in
changing filters used in these internal filter racks.
Filter kits are available as a purchased accessory or a factory
installed option. The same filter kit is included with the accessory
economizers and factory installed economizers.
To ensure dependable and efficient heating operation, the heat
exchanger should be checked by a qualified maintenance person
before each heating season, and cleaned when necessary. This
checkout should not be attempted by anyone not having the
required expertise and equipment to properly do the job. Contact
your dealer for the required periodic maintenance.
Indoor and Outdoor Coils
Cleaning of the coils should only be done by qualified service
personnel. Contact your dealer for the required annual
maintenance.
Condensate Drain
The drain pan and condensate drain line should be checked and
cleaned at the same time the cooling coils are checked by your
dealer.
Compressor
All compressors are factory shipped with a normal charge of the
correct type of refrigeration grade oil. A compressor should rarely
require additional oil.
