Water Drainage

Diagram showing draining of the Arctic King Portable PD

During dehumidifying modes, remove the upper drain plug from the back of the unit and install the drain connector (5/8” universal female mender) with 3/4” hose (locally purchased). For models without drain connector, just attach the drain hose to the hole. Place the open end of the hose directly over the drain area in your basement floor.

Draining the Arctic King Portable PD using an adaptor

During heat pump mode, remove the lower drain plug from the back of the unit and install the drain connector (5/8” universal female mender) with 3/4” hose (locally purchased). For models without drain connector, just attach the drain hose to the hole. Place the open end of the hose adaptor directly over the drain area in your basement floor.

NOTE: Make sure the hose is secure so there are no leaks.  Direct the hose toward the drain, making sure that there are no kinks that will impede water flow. Place the end of the hose into the drain and make sure the end of the hose is directed downward to let the water flow smoothly. (See Figs with  Check symbol ). Installation not recommended. (See Figs with Wrong icon ). When the continuous drain hose is not used, ensure that the corresponding drain plug and knob are installed firmly to prevent leakage.

Correct and incorrect drain hose connections illustrated

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.

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

Installation Instructions

Choosing The Right Location

Positioning the Arctic King Portable PD in the right location

Your installation location should meet the following requirements:

NOTE: When setting the TIMER ON or TIMER OFF functions, up to 10 hours, the time will increase in 30 minute increments with each press. After 10 hours and up to 24, it will increase in 1-hour increments. The timer will revert to zero after 24 hours.

You can turn off either function by setting the timer to “0.0h“.

Setting Both Timer On And Timer Off At The Same Time

Keep in mind that the time periods you set for both functions refer to hours after the current time.
For example, say that the current time is 1:00 PM, and you want the unit to turn on automatically at 7:00 PM and want it to operate for 2 hours, then automatically turn off at 9:00 PM.

Setting the timer both on and off at the same time

Do the following (side figure): Example: Setting the unit to turn on after 6 hours, operate for 2 hours, then turn off (see the figure below)

How to Stay Cool with a New Portable Air Conditioner

Because of a new federal test procedure for Portable Air Conditioners, you may notice that the cooling capacity claims on portable air conditioner packaging are significantly lower than that of models produced prior to 2017. This is due to changes in the test procedure, not to the portable air conditioners themselves.

What should I look for first when purchasing a portable air conditioner?

The right air conditioner helps you cool a room efficiently. An undersized unit won’t cool adequately while one that’s too large will not remove enough humidity, leaving the air feeling damp. To find the proper air conditioner, determine the  square footage of the room you want to cool by multiplying the room length by its width. You also need to know the air conditioner’s BTU (British Thermal Unit) rating, which indicates the amount of heat it can remove from a room. A higher number means more cooling power for a larger room. (Be sure you are comparing only newer models to each other- older models may appear to have a higher capacity, but are actually the same). Be sure to “size up” if your portable air conditioner will be placed in a very sunny room, in a kitchen, or in a room with high ceilings. After you’ve found the right cooling capacity or your room, you can look at other features.

Why is the cooling capacity lower on newer models than on older units?

Federal regulations require manufacturers to calculate cooling capacity based on a specific test procedure. Models manufactured before 2017 were tested under a different procedure and cooling capacity is measured differently than in prior years’ models. So, while the BTUs may be lower, the actual cooling capacity of the air conditioners has not changed.

What is SACC ?

SACC is the representative value of Seasonally Adjusted Cooling Capacity, in Btu/h, as determined in accordance with the DOE test procedure at title 10 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 430, subpart B, appendix CC and applicable sampling plans.
