Caring For Your Air Conditioner
Electrical
Shock Hazard
Unplug
power cord from outlet before
servicing.
Be sure no liquid gets into the motor,
electrical
control
box, or compressor
terminals.
Failure to follow these instructions
can
result in death, electrical
shock, or
serious
injury.
Excessive
Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
air conditioner.
Failure to do so can result in back or
other injury.
Annual maintenance
Your air conditioner
needs annual maintenance
to help ensure steady, top performance
through-
out the year.
Call the service company recommended
by
your dealer to:
l
Inspect and clean the coils and condensate
water passages.
l
Check fan.
The compressor
and fan motor are sealed and
need no oiling. The expense of an annual
inspection is the customer's responsibility.
OR
If you are familiar with electrical appliances,
you
can do the cleaning and maintenance
yourself. If
you choose to do so, follow these steps:
NOTE: Do not lift, push, or pull any white beaded
foam (expanded
polystyrene)
parts.
1. Unplug power cord.
2. Remove the front panel. (See "Cleaning front
panel and filter" on page 5.)

out for the sharp metal fins on the front and
rear coils.

Phillips-head screws which attach the curtains
to the cabinet. (See A in illustration at left.)
