Clean your air conditioner occasionally to keep it looking new. Be sure to unplug
the unit before cleaning

Air Filter
Cleaning
The air filter should be checked at least once a month to see if cleaning is
necessary. Trapped particles in the filter can build up and cause an accumulation
of frost on the cooling coils.
• Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position(where
applicable).
• Open the front panel.
• Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.
• Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter
thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is
thoroughly dry before replacing.
• Or instead of washing, you may vacuum the filter clean.
NOTE: When replacing the air filter after cleaning, make sure the tabs on the air
filter are on the upper part of filter, and placed outward as shown in the drawing
on the left side.
Cabinet
Cleaning
• Be sure to unplug the air conditioner to prevent shock or fire hazard. The
cabinet and front may be dusted with an oil-free cloth or washed with a cloth
dampened in a solution of warm water and mild liquid dishwashing detergent.
Rinse thoroughly
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.
• Plug in air conditioner.
Winter
Storage
If you plan to store the air conditioner during the winter, remove it carefully from
the window according to the installation instructions. Cover it with plastic or return
it to the original carton.
Energy Saving Ideas
.
Do not block
air flow
inside with blinds,
curtains
or furniture;
or outside with
shrubs, enclosures,
or other buildings,
The capacity
of the room air conditioner
must fit the room size for efficient
and
satisfactory
operation.
Install
the room air conditioner
on the shady side of your
home.
A window
that faces
north
is best because
it is shaded
most of the day.
Close the fireplace
damper,
floor
and wall registers
so cool air does not escape
up
the chimney
and into the duct work.
Keep blinds and drapes
in other
windows
closed during
the sunniest
part of the day.
Clean the air filter
as recommended
in the section
"Care and Cleaning".
Proper
insulation
and weather
stripping
in your
home will help keep warm
air out
and cool air in.
External
house shading
with trees,
plants
or awnings
will help reduce
the air
conditioner's
work load.
Operate
heat producing
appliances
such as ranges,
washers,
dryers
and dishwashers
during
the coolest
part of the day.
