Fixing the sealing frame for sliding windows
The sliding window sealing frame is designed to fit most standard vertical and horizontal windows. However, you may need to change some aspects of the installation for certain types of windows. The sealing frame can be fixed with screws.

Adjusting the sealing frame for sliding windows

Slide frame (B) into frame (A) and adjust the size of the frame to the width of your window. Lock the locking screw (C) in the holes corresponding to the measured width to ensure that there are no gaps or air pockets between the window and sealing frame after installation.

Fixing the seal for side-opening windows and roof windows
The installation of the window seal is simple. You can attach the seal to a tilted window, a side-opened window or a roof window. We have chosen a side-opened window for demonstration purposes. It is particularly suitable because the exhaust hose can be attached to the side far down. The Velcro tape is attached to the three open sides. The side where the window is against the frame is left out. Clean and dry the window frame beforehand so that the tape adheres.


  • Always disconnect the air conditioner from the power supply before cleaning.
  • To increase the efficiency of the air conditioner, it should be cleaned regularly.

Cleaning the housing

  • Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe the housing.
  • Never use aggressive chemicals, petrol, cleaning agents, chemically treated cloths or other cleaning solutions. These can damage the housing.

Cleaning the filter
Use a hoover or tap the filter lightly to remove loose dust and dirt from the filter, then rinse it thoroughly under running water (not hotter than 40 °C). Allow the filter to dry thoroughly before reinserting it.

Note: Never operate the unit without the filter.

Storage at the end of the season

  • Empty the water tank before running the unit in fan-only mode for a few hours to thoroughly dry the inside of the unit.
  • Clean or change the filter.
  • Unplug the power cord and stow it away.
