a+b+c+d+e 1210 ~ 1620 47.6 ~ 63.8

NOTICE
Once the Exhaust Hose assembly and Adjustable Window Slider are prepared, choose from one of the following two installation methods.

For Hung Window types only

Insert the Air Exhaust Adapter into the exhaust of the hose (the circular opening) for optimal performance. Rotate the adapter clockwise until the locking tabs click and it no longer rotates. Skip this step if installing into a horizontal sliding window.
The Air Exhaust adapter may interfere with some window screens, and can be removed if desired (Please note this may slightly decrease performance).

Preparing the adjustable window slider

  1. Depending on the size of your window, adjust the size of the window slider. Use the combination of panels that best fits your window opening.
  2. If the length of the window requires two or more window sliders, use the bolt to fasten the window sliders once they are adjusted to the proper length.
  3. If installing in a sliding window, bolts should be installed on both sides of the window sliders.

Applying insulation to the window slider

After assembling the window slider to your proper dimension, cut and apply the foam insulation sheets to the exterior side of the window slider.

Type 1: Hung window installation

  1. Cut the adhesive foam seal A and B strips to the proper lengths, and attach them to the window sash and frame as shown.
  2. Insert the window slider assembly into the window track. If the hose opening is covered by the lip of the window frame, rotate the panel so the thicker side faces the window frame. Attach the Window Kit Brace to the back of the hose panel to brace against the window so the window slider panels do not lean inward.
  3. Cut the non-adhesive foam seal C strip to match the width of the window. Insert the seal between the glass and the window frame to prevent air and insects from getting into the room.
  4. If desired, install the security bracket with 2 screws as shown.
  5. Attach the hose to the window slider panel by inserting the end of the hose into the opening on the slider.

Type 2: Sliding window Installation (Optional)

  1. Cut the adhesive foam seal A and B strips to the proper lengths, and attach them to the window sash and frame as shown.
  2. Assembling the Sliding Window Adapter (Only needed for Sliding Window applications): Align both halves of the sliding window adapter and connect them. Then, attach the air divider to the newly formed window adapter on the outdoor side. The fully assembled adapter should look like the image at the left.
  3. Insert the window slider assembly into the window track. If the hose opening is covered by the window frame, rotate the panel so the thicker side faces the window frame. Attach the Window Kit Brace to the back of the hose panel to brace against the window so the window slider panels do not lean inward.
  4. Be sure bolts are installed in both sides of the window slider for improved rigidity.
  5. Cut the non-adhesive foam seal C strip to match the window height. Insert the foam seal between the glass and the window frame to prevent air and insects from getting into the room.
  6. If desired, install the security bracket with 2 screws as shown.
  7. Attach the Sliding Window Adapter to the hose by lining up the circles on the adapter the hose. Insert the window slider adapter into the hole of the window slider.

NOTICE
To ensure proper function, DO NOT overextend or bend the hose. Make sure that there are no objects within 20in (~500mm) of the inlet and outlet hose. All illustrations in this manual are for explanation purposes only, your air conditioner may be slightly different than shown.

Water Drainage
  • During Dry modes, remove the upper drain plug from the back of the unit and install the drain hose.
    For models without drain connector, just attach the drain hose to the hole. Place the end of the hose directly in the drain area you’re using.
Water Drainage (For Heating Mode)
  • While operating in heat pump mode, the unit will produce condensate that must be drained. You must install the drain hose when operating in heat mode. To install the drain hose, remove the plug from the drain port and attach the included hose.
    The universal drain adaptor can be attached to the end of the included hose. A 3/4” hose (not included) can be attached to the adaptor if a longer hose length is required. Place the end of the hose in the drain area you are using.

NOTICE

Because this unit contains a condensate pump, the drain hose can be elevated up to 6 ft. (1.8 m). Direct the hose toward the drain, making sure there are no kinks that will restrict water flow. Make sure the end of the hose is directed downward (see fi g. with check mark symbol).

The figure with X symbol is not recommended as the end of the hose is not directed downward. When the continuous drain hose is not used, ensure that the corresponding drain plug and knob are installed firmly to prevent leaks.

  • When the water level of the bottom tray reaches a predetermined level, the unit beeps 8 times. The digital display shows “P1.” At this time the air conditioning/dehumidification process will immediately stop. However, the fan motor will continue to operate (this is normal). Carefully move the unit to a drain location, remove the bottom drain plug and let the water drain away. Reinstall the bottom drain plug and restart the machine until the “P1” symbol disappears. If the error repeats, call for service.

NOTICE
Be sure to reinstall the bottom drain plug firmly to prevent leakage before using the unit.

CARE AND CLEANING

Safety Precautions
  • Always unplug the unit before cleaning or servicing.
  • DO NOT use flammable liquids or chemicals to clean the unit.

Maintenance Tips

  • Be sure to clean the air filter every 2 weeks for optimal performance.
  • Clean the filter using water and ensure it is dry before reinstalling.
  • The water collection tray should be drained immediately after P1 error occurs, and before storage to prevent mold.
  • In households with animals, you will have to periodically wipe down the grill to prevent blocked airflow due to animal hair.

Unit Cleaning

Clean with a soft cloth only. Do not use strong detergents that contain wax or thinners as it may damage the product.

Why does the blue light in my digital display toaster oven stay on?

This is normal when the unit is plugged in and as the controls are in use. The light will turn off a few seconds after no other command is entered into the digital control.
 If it doesn’t turn off, please call our customer service line 1-855-204-5313 so we can arrange for a return.

Why does it look like only one of my heating elements is working?

Why are the broiling and baking results subpar?

Pre-heating the toaster oven is an important first step. It is best to pre-heat the oven to the desired temperature for approximately few minutes prior to cooking.
