Incorrect installation

  • It’s important to keep the exhaust duct smooth. Incorrect installation will affect the work of the A/C.
  • Prevent the exhaust duct from sharp bending.
  • Ensure air can flow smoothly in the duct.

The exhaust duct is designed especially for this model. Don’t replace or lengthen it; otherwise, it will result in failure.
Max. developed length of the exhaust duct is 59in. It’s better to shorten it while use and keep it horizontal while installation.

This product is equipped with an automatic water vaporization system. The condenser is cooled with the circulating of condensing water, so as to improve cooling efficiency and save energy.
If the internal vessel is full of water, the display screen will display “FL”, and the compressor stops working automatically. At this point, the water needs to be discharged. The specific steps are as follows:

  • Unplug the power cord and take down the exhaust duct assembly.
  • Move the air conditioner to the right place.
  • Pull off the drain at the drain and drain the water inside the machine.
  • Re plug the water plug.
  • Reinstall the exhaust duct assembly and start the machine.


Notice: In order to avoid electric shock, please turn off the A/C and unplug it before maintenance or repair.


  • Unplug before cleaning.
  • Wipe with soft semi-dry cloth. Don’t use chemical reagents, such as benzene, alcohol and gasoline etc; otherwise, the surface of the A/C and even the whole NC will be  damaged
  •  Prevent water from spattering in the NC.

It is suggested to clean the filter every two weeks. If the indoor air quality is poor, the cleaning frequency should be improved appropriately. Because the filter screen is blocked by dust, it will reduce the efficiency of air conditioning. The specific cleaning steps are as follows:

  1. According to the direction of the chart, the lower intake grille is first taken out and the filter screen is removed.
  2. Clean the filter with clean or warm water (about 104 F) which has been added with neutral detergent, then put it in a cool place to dry.
  3. The filter screen cleaned and dried will be re-installed.
  4. Restart the machine and run properly.

If the filter screen is not too dirty, just use  the vacuum cleaner to absorb the dust. If the filter is dirty, clean the filter with clear water or warm water.  The temperature is about 104° F.


  1. Do not use water with excessive temperature (suitable temperature is about 104° F) or irritant detergent (such as alcohol, gasoline, benzene, etc.) to clean the filter.
  2.  To avoid deformation of the filter, the cleaned filter should be kept away from the heat source and put in dry air to dry naturally.
  3. Do not run machines without filters.

If the A/C will not be used for a long time, Please follow these steps to maintain it: 

  1. Pull out the water plug to drain.
  2. Run the A/C in fan mode for 2H till the inside is dry.
  3. Turn off the A/C and unplug.
  4. Wash the filter screen and reassemble it.
  5. Dismantle the exhaust duct and keep it properly.
  6. Take the battery from the remote control.
  7. Cover the A/C with a plastic bag and place it at a dry place.

If you haven’t used it for a long time, please pay attention to the following points when you use it again:

  1. Confirm whether water plugs and filters are installed.
  2. Check if the power cord is intact. If there is any damage, do not use it.
  3. Reinstall the remote battery.
  4. Reinstall the other components according to the installation instructions.
