SET UP & USE
CARE AND CLEANING
Clean your air conditioner to keep it looking new and to minimize dust build up.
AIR FILTER CLEANING
The air filter should be checked at least once every month to see if it needs cleaning.
Trapped particles and dust can build up in the filter and may decrease airflow as well
as cause the cooling coils to accumulate frost. To clean the air filter:
1. Remove the filter by pulling down on the indents of the
filter door on the front of the unit (See Fig. 15).
2. Wash the filter using liquid dish soap and warm water.
Rinse the filter thoroughly. Gently shake the filter to
remove excess water.
3. Let the filter dry completely before placing it into
the air conditioner.
4. If you do not wish to wash the filter, you may
vacuum the filter to remove the dust and other particles.
WEAR AND TEAR
To minimize wear and tear on the air conditioner, always wait at least 3 minutes
before changing modes. This will help prevent the compressor from overheating and
the circuit breaker from tripping.
To clean the air conditioner cabinet:
• Unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or a fire hazard. The cabinet and front
panel of the air conditioner may be dusted with an oil free cloth or washed with a
cloth dampened in a solution of warm water and mild liquid soap. Rinse thoroughly
with a damp cloth and wipe dry.
• Never use harsh cleaners, wax or polish on the cabinet front.
• Be sure to wring excess water from the cloth before wiping around the controls.
Excess water in or around the controls may cause damage to the air conditioner.
