MAINTENANCE
Be sure to disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet or turn off the circuit breaker
before performing any maintenance.
CLEANING THE FILTER
If the filter is clogged with dust, the amount of air flow will be reduced, resulting  in poor
cooling performance. The filter should be cleaned every10 days. At the beginning of
every cooling season or if the air conditioner has not been used for a long period, clean
the filter before starting to operate the unit.
To clean the front panel, grille and cabinet, wipe with a soft, dry cloth or with a cloth
moistened with a mild soap. Rinse carefully by wiping with a damp cloth and dry
completely.
Avoid splashing the unit with water. Excessive water will affect electrical insulation and
fire may be resulted during operation.
Never use erosive chemicals or abrasive cleaners on any part of the unit. To avoid
damaging the unit, do not use hot water of over 50°C when cleaning. To clean the
remote control, wipe with a soft dry cloth.
