Air Conditioner Use; Starting Your Air Conditioner - Whirlpool 1186896B User Manual

Hide thumbs


Operating your air conditioner properly helps you to obtain the
best possible results.
This section explains proper air conditioner operation.
If you turn the air conditioner off, wait at least 3 minutes
before turning it back on. This prevents the air conditioner
from blowing a fuse or tripping a circuit breaker.
Do not try to operate your air conditioner in the cooling mode
when outside temperature is below 65°F (18°C). The inside
evaporator coil will freeze up, and the air conditioner will not
operate properly.

Starting Your Air Conditioner

1. Set the exhaust control. See "Exhaust (on some models)."
2. Set fan speed. See "Fan (on some models)."
3. Select the temperature. See "Thermostat."
Exhaust (on some models)
Set the Exhaust control to CLOSED for maximum continuous
cooling. The Exhaust control set to OPEN position allows you to
draw stale or smoky air from the room.
Open—to exhaust room air to the outside
Closed—to circulate room air
NOTE: The Exhaust control will function only when the Fan is
Fan (on some models)
Set the Fan control to the desired setting. When the air
conditioner is operating at Low Cool, High Cool (on some
models), or Turbo Cool, the fan circulates air continuously.
Turbo Cool—for maximum cooling
High Cool (on some models)—for normal cooling
Low Cool—for sleeping comfort


Fan Only—fan will run continuously to move air, but the air
will not be cooled.
NOTE: Fan runs on Turbo speed only.
Power Saver (on some models)—When the air conditioner is
operating on Power Saver, the fan runs only when cooling is
needed. The fan stops circulating air when the room
temperature matches the Thermostat control setting.
Since the fan does not circulate the room air continuously,
less energy is used but the room air is not circulated as often.
Use Power Saver when you are asleep or away from home.
NOTE: Fan runs on Low speed only.
Your air conditioner may have one of these fan controls:
Turn the THERMOSTAT control to a mid-setting. Adjust the air
conditioner's performance by turning the Thermostat control
clockwise for maximum cooling. For less cooling, turn the
THERMOSTAT control counterclockwise. Experiment to find the
setting that suits you best.
NOTE: If your air conditioner has a Thermostat control only, the
fan will run continuously when power cord is plugged in. To turn
the fan off, unplug power cord.
