Performing
annual
maintenance

nance to help ensure steady, top performance
throughout the year.
Call the service company recommended
by your dealer to:

Inspect and clean the coils and conden-
sate water passages.

The compressor and fan motor are sealed
and need no oiling. Expense of annual
inspection is the customer's responsibility.

If you are familiar with electrical appliances,
you can do the cleaning and maintenance
yourself. If you choose to do so, follow the
steps on page 9.
NOTE:
Do not lift, push, or pull any white
beaded foam (expanded polystyrene)
parts.
