HANDLING ALKALINE BATTERIES


When handling alkaline batteries, basic safety precautions should be followed, including the following

  1. Should fluid from the battery accidentally get into your eyes, there is a threat of loss of eyesight, do not rub them. Immediately rinse your eyes with clean tap water and then consult a physician immediately.
  2. Do not put the battery in a fire, expose it to heat, dismantle or modify it. If the insulation or safety valve is damaged, the battery may leak fluid, overheat or explode.
  3. Do not insert the battery with the poles reversed. Doing so may cause some abnormality or a short and the battery may leak fluid, overheat or explode.
  4. Keep the battery out of the reach of children. If the battery is swallowed, contact a physician immediately.
  5. If the alkali fluid gets in your mouth, rinse your mouth with water and contact a physician immediately.
  6. If the alkali fluid gets on your skin or clothes, it may burn your skin, thoroughly rinse the affected area with tap water.
  7. Do not mix new and old batteries or other makes of batteries. The different attributes may cause the battery to leak fluid, overheat or explode.
  8. This battery was not made to be recharged. Recharging this battery may damage the insulation or internal structure and may cause the battery to leak fluid, overheat or explode.
  9. Do not damage or remove the label on the exterior of the battery. Doing so may cause the battery to short, leak fluid, overheat or explode.
  10. Do not drop, throw or expose the battery to extreme impact. Doing so may cause the battery to leak fluid, overheat or explode.

HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
In the event of malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. The appliance must be connected to a cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.


Improper connection of the equipment grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. The conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is green with or without yellow stripes is the equipment grounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal. Check with a qualified electrician or service person if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether the appliance is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug connected to the appliance – if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

FOR GROUNDED, CORD-CONNECTED APPLIANCE RATED LESS THAN15A AND INTENDED FOR USE ON A NOMINAL 120V SUPPLY CIRCUIT

The appliance is for use on a nominal 120V circuit and should be connected to a grounding outlet that looks like the one illustrated below. The use of a temporary adaptor is not recommended.

LCDI POWER CORD AND PLUG

This air conditioner is equipped with an LCDI (Leakage Current Detection and Interruption) power cord that is required by UL. This power supply cord contains state-of-the-art electronics that sense leakage current. If the cord is damaged and leakage occurs, power will be disconnected from the unit.

The test and reset buttons on the LCDI Plug are used to check if the plug is functioning properly.


Test LCDI before each use.

To test the plug:

  1. Plug power cord into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
  2. Press RESET (on some units a green light will turn on).
  3. Press the TEST button, the circuit should trip and cut all power to the air conditioner(on some units green light may turn off).
  4. Press the RESET button for use. You will hear a click and the A/C is ready for use.
  5. The power supply cord must be replaced if it fails to trip when the TEST button is pressed and the unit fails to reset.

NOTES:

  • Do not use this device to turn the unit on or off.
  • Always make sure the reset button is pushed in for correct operation
  • The power supply cord must be replaced if it fails to reset when either the test button is pushed, or it cannot be reset.
  • If power supply cord is damaged, it cannot be repaired.
  • It must be replaced by one obtained from the product manufacturer.
    LCDI POWER CORD AND PLUG


RISK OF FIRE
It is important the plug fits tightly into the wall outlet. If the plug does not fit securely and appears loose, it should not be used. Have a licensed electrician replace the receptacle.

WATER DRAINAGE FOR COOLING AND HEAT MODES

This air conditioner is equipped with auto water evaporation so the water compartment would not typically fill in cooling or heating mode unless there is high humidity. Water drainage will generally only be required at the end of the season for these modes. (see START-END OF SEASON OPERATIONS).

NOTE: FULL TANK - When the water level reaches a predetermined level, the "full tank" indicator light located on the control panel of the unit goes on. If an error code appears on the display screen on the control panel "E2" in COOL mode or "E4" in HEAT mode. The unit will have to be drained.

Intermittent Draining

  • Unplug the unit from the power source. Carefully move the unit to a drain area over your basement floor or drip pan (not included). Remove the bottom drain cap.
  • Let the water drain away and replace the drain cap. Restart the machine until the error codes E2 or E4 disappears. If the error repeats, call for service.
    Intermittent Draining
    NOTE: Be sure to reinstall the bottom drain plug before using the unit.

Continuous Draining

  • Unplug the unit from the power source. Remove the bottom drain cap. While doing this operation some residual water may spill so have a drip pan (not supplied) to collect the water.
  • Connect the drain hose (supplied) as shown in the diagram. The water can be continuously drained through the hose into a floor drain or drip tray.
  • Turn on the unit.

Continuous Draining

WAIT 3 MINUTES BEFORE RESUMING OPERATION

  • After the unit has stopped, it cannot be restarted for 3 minutes. Operation will automatically restart after 3 minutes.

Continuous Draining for Dehumidification Mode
Unplug the unit from the power source.

Remove the drain cap located in the back center of the unit. While doing this operation some residual water may spill so have a drip pan (not supplied) to collect the water.

Connect the drain hose (supplied) as shown in the diagram. The water can be continuously drained through the hose into a floor drain or bucket.

Turn on the unit.

  • After the unit has stopped, it cannot be restarted for 3 minutes. Operation will automatically restart after 3 minutes.

CLEANING & CARE

CLEANING


Before cleaning or maintenance, turn the appliance off by pressing the button on the control panel or button on the remote control. Unplug from the electrical outlet.

CLEANING THE CABINET

You should clean the appliance with a slightly damp cloth then dry with a dry cloth.

  • Never saturate the air conditioner with water.

CLEANING THE FILTER

START - END OF SEASON OPERATIONS

START OF SEASON CHECKS
Make sure the power cable and plug are undamaged. Follow the installation instructions precisely.

END OF SEASON OPERATIONS
See Water Drainage section to make sure the air conditioner is completely drained of water.

Clean the filter and dry thoroughly before reinstalling.

TROUBLESHOOTING & WARRANTY

BEFORE YOU CALL FOR SERVICE

IF THE AIR CONDITIONER FAILS TO OPERATE:

  1. Check to make sure that the air conditioner is plugged in securely. If it is not, remove the plug from the outlet, wait 10 seconds and plug it in again securely.
