hazards.
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.
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

it
carefully from the

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.
