indicates a potentiallyhazardous situation that if not avoided, may result in minoror moderate injury or property damage.
Thermostat styles vary. Some models may notinclude the AUTO mode and others will have the AUTOin place of the HEAT and COOL. Others may include allthree. Please refer to the thermostat manufacturer’s Usermanual for detailed programming instructions.
1. Set the thermostat’s system mode to COOL or AUTOand change the fan mode to AUTO. See Figure 1.2. Set the temperature selector to the desiredtemperature level. The outdoor fan, compressor, andblower motor will all cycle on and off to maintain theindoor temperature at the desired cooling level.
If the temperature level is re-adjusted, or thesystem mode is reset, the fan and compressor in theoutdoor unit may not start immediately. A protectivetimer circuit holds the compressor and the outdoor fanoff for approximately 5 minutes following a previousoperation or the interruption of the main electricalpower (if applicable).
1. Set the thermostat’s system mode to HEAT or AUTOand change the fan mode to AUTO. See Figure 1.2. Set the temperature selector to the desiredtemperature level. The optional heating equipment(furnace or electric heat) will cycle on & off to maintainthe indoor temperature at the desired temperaturelevel.The continuous indoor blower operation can be obtainedwith the thermostat system mode set in any position,including OFF.
Turning the Air Conditioner OFF
Change the thermostat’s system mode to OFF and the fanmode to AUTO (See Figure 1).
The system will notoperate, regardless of the temperature selector setting.

AIR CONDITIONER MAINTENANCE
Proper maintenance is most important to achieve the bestperformance from the appliance and should be performedfrequently at the beginning of each air conditioning season.
Your air conditioner contains liquid and gaseousrefrigerant under pressure. Installation andservicing should only be attempted by qualiﬁed,trained personnel thoroughly familiar with theequipment and safe responsible refrigeranthandling procedures. Failure to comply withthis warning could result in equipment damage,personal injury, or death.
• Keep the outdoor unit clean. Hose off periodically andkeep unit ﬁns clear of leaves and grass clippings.• Keep the outdoor unit clear of obstructions.DO NOT obstruct airﬂow with tall plants or shrubs.DO NOT store gasoline or other ﬂammable materialson or near the outdoor unit.• Never operate the appliance without a ﬁlter installed inthe return air duct. Inspect ﬁlters frequently and replacewhen necessary with ﬁlter of same dimensional size.
• Check the thermostat setting. Make sure the systemmode and temperature settings are correct.• Check the electrical panel for tripped circuit breakers.• Check the ﬁlters for dust accumulation.• Check the outdoor unit and make sure it is clean andnot covered with grass or leaves.
Operating the AC for Automatic Cooling & Heating
1. Set the thermostat system mode to AUTO and thethermostat fan mode to AUTO. See Figure 1.2. Set the thermostat temperature selector to the desiredtemperature level. The thermostat will maintain thedesired temperature level by switching between eitherthe outdoor cooling unit or the indoor heating unit(furnace or electric heat) automatically.
Operating the Indoor Blower Continuously
The continuous indoor blower operation is typically used tocirculate the indoor air to equalize a temperature unbalancedue to a sun load, cooking, or ﬁreplace operation.
Set thethermostat fan mode to ON (Figure 1). The indoor blowerstarts immediately, and will run continually until the fanmode is reset to AUTO.
