INSTALLATION
Locating the unit. Install the portable air conditioner in a flat location with adequate space to ensure the air inlets and outlets will not be blocked. Keep a minimum clearance of 40cm from walls or other objects. Locate the unit to allow the exhaust pipe and drain hose to reach a suitable window, as shown. Avoid sharp bends or kinks in the exhaust pipe. Use the adjustable window slider kit to ensure the exhaust pipe and drain hose is held in place (in the window) and to prevent expelled hot air re-entering the room. The appliance should not be used in damp areas such as a laundry or bathroom. Do not place the unit where it will be in direct sunlight as it may overheat and turn off. Extending the exhaust pipe and drain hose. When the unit is stored, the exhaust pipe and drain hose fold away into the unit's side. To extend the exhaust pipe and drain hose, press it down slightly and pull the top end of it away from the unit. The drain hose is stored within the exhaust pipe. Unroll it and extend it out through the exhaust pipe. (For DC12RC only)

EXHAUST TUBE INSTALLATION
1. To remove the exhaust pipe, press slightly & pull away from the unit. The following pictures indicate the removal of the exhaust pipe. 2. If the exhaust tube is loose, twist the tube clockwise to tighten at the base.

NOTICE
This unit has a self evaporative system which removes excess condensation by means of evaporating water collected in the tank. Therefore saving you the hassle of having to use a drip tray or drain hose. Please make sure the rubber cap is locked into position to avoid leakage.

Note: In high humidity, there may be excess water condensation produced that cannot be removed or evaporated. In this instance, the unit will need to be drained. View WATER DRAIN for details. The unit will automatically switch off when the internal water tank is full.

========6========

WATER DRAIN
When the air conditioner is used, excess water condensation may be produced that cannot be removed via evaporation. This water is captured by an internal container. The unit automatically drains this container periodically during operation, however if the water level remains too high after this draining process the unit will stop working. For cooling only models, the water drain warning indicator is displayed. For reverse cycle models, it will display the E4 error code. (DC12RC only) When the water drain warning indicator (cooling only models) or error code E4 (reverse cycle models) is displayed, the water collected in the internal container must be manually drained: 1. 2. Switch off and unplug the unit. Move the unit to a suitable place to drain the water. Consider placing a tray or suitable container under the outlet pipe to catch the drained water. 3. 4. 5. Remove the drain plug (11), refer to parts illustration. Slightly tilt the unit to the rear and drain the water. Replace the drain plug.

Make sure the drain plug is re-fitted to the drain outlet before use. Extend the exhaust pipe and drain hose to the window before the unit is restarted.
