Continued
Electrical
Shock, Product
Damage and
Personal
Injury Hazard
l
Unplug power cord from receptacle
before performing
any maintenance.
Be
sure no liquid gets into the motor,
electrical
control
box or compressor
electrical
terminals.
. Do not lift, push or pull any white beaded
foam (expanded
polystyrene)
parts.
l
Because
your air conditioner
weighs from
80 to 110 pounds,
it is recommended
that
you have someone
help you when you
remove and re-install
your unit and that
you both use proper lifting techniques.
l
Handle the air conditioner
with care.
Watch out for the sharp metal fins on the
front and rear coils.
9 Do not use the collected
water for
drinking
purposes.
It is not sanitary.
Failure to follow the above precautions
could result in electrical
shock, product
damage or personal
injury.
1.
Unplug power cord.
2. Remove front panel. (See page 5.)
3. Slide unit out of cabinet by using the handle in
the center of the base flange.
4. Wrap the motor, connector plug, electrical
control box and compressor terminal box in
plastic film and make sure no water or other
liquid gets inside any of these parts. It could
damage the insulation and cause serious
mechanical
problems.
Handle
5. Carefully clean and hose out the base,
condenser coil and condensate
pans. Clean at
least once a year or more often if the con-
denser coil and pan collects dirt, sand, leaves,
insects or algae. Also, clean if you detect an
odor coming from the air conditioner.
6. Remove plastic film from motor and electrical
parts.
7. Replace unit in cabinet.
8. Replace front panel.
9. Reconnect power supply.
NOTE: It is a good idea to wait 24 hours before
starting the unit again. This allows time for all
areas to dry out. The water from rainfall or from
normal operation does not harm these compo-
nents.
