Prepare Air Conditioner for Installation
WARNING
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.
Remove Packaging Materials:
Handle the air conditioner gently while unpacking the unit.
Remove the carton top and lift the air conditioner from the
base pad.
Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning
on the air conditioner. Rub a small amount of liquid dish soap
over the adhesive with your fingers. Wipe with a damp cloth
and dry.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable
fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These
products can damage the surface of your air conditioner.
