Troubleshooting Tips


Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord. For personal safety, this appliance must be properly

The air conditioner should always be plugged into its own individual electrical outlet which has a voltage rating that matches the rating plate.

The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard 3-prong (grounding) wall outlet to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from this appliance.

This provides the best performance and also prevents overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires.

Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.

Consumer Support

Where a 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded

3-prong wall outlet.

See the Installation Instructions, Electrical

Requirements section for specific electrical connection requirements.

USE OF EXTENSION CORDS115-Volt models only

Because of potential safety hazards under certain conditions, we strongly recommend against the use of an extension cord.

DO NOT use an extension cord with any of the

230/208 volt models.

USE OF ADAPTER PLUGS115-Volt models only

However, if you must use an adapter, where local codes permit, a temporary connection may be made to a properly grounded 2-prong wall outlet by use of a UL-listed adapter available at most local hardware stores.

The larger slot in the adapter must be aligned with the larger slot in the wall outlet to provide proper polarity in the connection of the power cord.

When disconnecting the power cord from the adapter, always hold the adapter in place with one hand while pulling the power cord plug with the other hand. If this is not done, the adapter ground terminal is very likely to break with repeated use.

If the adapter ground terminal breaks, DO NOT

USE the air conditioner until a proper ground has been established.

Troubleshooting Tips

Attaching the adapter ground terminal to a wall outlet cover screw does not ground the appliance unless the cover screw is metal, not insulated, and the wall outlet is grounded through the house wiring. You should have the circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
