A thermostat is used to maintain the room temperature. The compressor will cycle on and off to keep the room at the set level of comfort. Set the thermostat at a lower number and the indoor air will become cooler. Set the thermostat at a higher number and the indoor air will become warmer.

For Quieter & Nighttime CoolingSelect the

COOL mode and LOW (F1) fan with a middle set temperature.

NOTE: If the air conditioner is off and is then turned on while set to COOL, it will take approximately 3 minutes for the compressor to start and cooling to begin.

NOTE: If you switch from a COOL setting to OFF or to a fan setting, wait at least 3 minutes before switching back to a COOL setting.

Operating Instructions

Use the COOL mode with HIGH (F3), MED (F2) or

For Maximum CoolingSelect the COOL mode and HIGH (F3) fan with a lower set temperature.

Installation Instructions
