In this mode, the air conditioner cools and dehumidifies the room. To activate the cooling function,
press the Mode Control button until the indicator illuminates. When cooling mode is set, the
compressor will start in approximately 3 minutes.
NOTE: In cooling mode, hot air is exhausted from the outdoor exhaust port and the exhaust hose must
be connected to exhaust out the hot air.
The temperature setting range of this air conditioner is from 61°F to 89°F. To set the temperature,
press the + or - buttons. This air conditioner has a 5°F temperature cushion; if the set temperature is
within 5°F of the ambient temperature, the unit runs in fan only mode. This saves energy and prolongs
the life of the compressor of the air conditioner. Once the set temperature is achieved, the compressor
will turn off and the fan runs continuously to circulate the air within the room.
To set the fan speed, press the Fan Speed button.

When switching between functions, there will be an approximate 3 minute transition time.
In dehumidifying mode, the exhaust hose does not need to be vented. If the exhaust hose is vented,
the room will be cooled as it dehumidifies. To prevent cooling, remove the exhaust hose from the
window kit and allow the warm air from the rear to be re-circulated into the room. If room temperature
is higher than 77°F, the fan speed can be adjusted. If room temperature is lower than 77°F, the fan
speed is set at Low.
When using dehumidifying mode, venting the exhaust hose to the outside is not required. If vented,
the warm air is exhausted to the outside and cooling within the room may occur. Additionally, if the
exhaust hose is not vented, the unit may require more frequent draining.
The air conditioner does not have a humidistat in which a specific humidity level can be set.
FAN ONLY MODE
In this mode, only the fan of the air conditioner runs and circulates the air within the room. To activate
fan only mode, press the Mode Control button until the indicator illuminates. In this mode, the
temperature cannot be set. Subsequently, set the desired fan speed by pressing the Fan Speed button.
Note: When using fan only mode, venting the exhaust hose to the outside is not required.
