Through-the-wall
Installation
This
air conditioner
is designed
as a slide-out
type
chassis,
making
it
possible
to
install
it
through-the-wall
in
both
existing
and
new
construction.
We recommend
that this type of installation
be performed
with
professional
assistance.
• IMPORTANT: This appliance
must be installed
according
to all
applicable
electrical
and building
codes and ordinances.
• It is recommended
that you have help to install your unit and that you
use proper
lifting
technique
to avoid
personal
injury.
• It is important
that you inspect the condition
of the wall where
the air
conditioner
will
be installed.
• Be sure the wall
can support
the weight
of the unit.
• All cabinet
louvers
MUST
BE on the outdoor
side of the wall.
DO NOT
BLOCK
SIDE LOUVERS.
• The cabinet
must be installed
level from side-to-side
and with
a
downward
tilt from inside to outside.
"1, First remove
the Decorative
front panel
and chassis from the cabinet,
then remove
top bar from the cabinet.

Determine
the size of the opening
for a wood frame by adding
1/8"
to the width
and height
of the cabinet.
Measure
height from top of
cabinet
to bottom
of bar. Add this measurement
to the thickness
of
wood
used to build the frame. This will determine
the size of wall
opening
needed.
Minimum
1" thick
lumber
is recommended
when
building
the frame.
When
determining
finish
frame thickness,
be sure
not to cover
side louvers
on the cabinet.
