Installation of the Indoor Unit 


Note:- With all the various methods of installation detailed below it is important 
to ensure there are no kinks, twists or sharp bends in the umbilical cord. 


Method 1 

The umbilical chord cord can pass though a partly 
open door or window. 


The rear of the indoor unit must be spaced away from 
curtains and drapes by at least 10cm. 


Method 2 


The plastic frame


(supplied) can be fitted into a 

suitable cut-out in the window frame.


The umbilical cord can then be passed though the 
plastic frame. 


When the air conditioner is stored away the blanking 
cap attached to the plastic frame should be fitted in 
place to blank off the aperture. 



Method 3


emi-permanent installation) 

The umbilical cord can be passed through a hole in 
the wall.  If this method is chosen, the hole should be 
fitted with the plastic frame supplied and the umbilical 
cord should be disconnected* and then  passed 
through the frame/wall. 
*See the section entitled “Disconnection   
 and Connection”. 


If you are not happy about disconnecting and re-
connecting the umbilical cord, request the help of a 
local service engineer. 
Soap suds should be used to check for refrigerant 
leaks after re-connection.  
When the air conditioner is stored away the blanking 
cap attached to the plastic frame should be fitted in 
place to blank off the aperture in the wall.

Installation of the Outdoor Unit 

Method 1 


The outdoor unit can be placed directly on a patio or 
balcony and when used in this way it does not 
require the use of the fixing brackets or straps. 
It is necessary to leave a gap of at least 5cm 
between the rear of the unit and the outside wall and 
also to ensure that no large objects are placed 
closer than 120cm from the front of the unit. 
Make sure that the drainage pipe is not pinched by 
the outdoor unit.  




Method 2 


The outdoor unit may be mounted on the wall by 
means of the enclosed accessories (mounting 
brackets, wall plugs and screws). 
When using this method you can extend the 
drainage tube and direct it to where you wish the 
water to discharge.  You can lift the outside unit off 
the brackets at any time. 
If you intend the installation of the outdoor unit to be 
permanent, it is recommended that a waterproof 
cover is made to prevent water getting into the unit 
during heavy rain.  




Method 3 

For short term installations the support belts and 
hooks (supplied) can be used to hang the unit 
outside the window. 
Always attach the belts to the mounting brackets of 
the unit and do not tie them to the carrying handle. 
During time of heavy rain and high wind, it is 
recommended to keep the unit suitably covered to 
prevent water getting into the unit. 





Always switch the air conditioner off before bringing the 
outdoor unit indoors.  If you do not do this, any water that 
may have collected in the internal water container within the 
unit may activate the water pump and cause the water to be 
expelled via the drain tube fitted to the outdoor unit.

Cooling Control 






This control sets the desired temperature and the compressor will turn off when this 
temperature is reached but the fan will continue running.  When the room temperature rises 
the compressor will come back on and resume the cooling operation.  If maximum cooling is 
required, this control should be turned to the CONT position.      



Fan Speed Control 

This control sets the fan speed in FAN ONLY or COOLING operation. 

Timer Control 

This control allows you to set the time that you wish the machine to run, in one hour intervals 
(up to 8 hours).  The machine will stop when the selected time has expired. 
If it is required that the machine runs continuously the control should be set to the CONT 

Water Full Alarm  

The GPACU12H has a unique system to dispel condensation automatically but in certain 
circumstances some water may collect in the water tank within the machine.  When this tank 
becomes full, the water full indicator will illuminate red and the machine will stop working.  
When this occurs it is necessary to drain the water from the machine by removing the rubber 
bung from the hose at the rear of the unit.  After draining the water, the bung should be 
replaced in the hose and the unit switched on.  If after draining the tank, the warning light 
remains on, this could indicate that there may be a fault with the machine.   If this is the case, 
do not attempt to operate the machine and call the service number. 






Note: When the Alarm light is on, the water should be drained 
out.   If the water is not drained out, the appliance will not

Disconnection and Reconnection 

(The following procedures should be carried out by a suitably qualified 
person to avoid expensive mistakes). 

Steps in Disconnection 


1.  Turn off the air conditioner and remove the 

plug from the power socket. 





When the machine has been turned off it must be 
left to stand for 30 minutes to allow the system to 
stabilise before disconnection can be carried out. 

2.  Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove 

the cover. 





3.  Disconnect the electrical connector by 

pressing the retaining clips. 





4.  Remove the metal holding brackets 





5.  Remove the insulating foam around the 

upper connector. 






6.  Use the 2 spanners provided to disconnect 

the 2 pipes. 





Make sure the tubes and connectors are kept level 
while disconnecting to avoid leakage of coolant. 

7.  Screw the protective caps onto the ends of 

each pipe after disconnection. 





8.  Separate the clamping tie on the black 

water pipe.  Gradually release the water 
pipe and place your finger over the end to 
prevent water in the tube coming out.  Have 
a container ready to collect any excess 
water from the tube. 



Steps in Reconnection 


  Always remember to keep the connecting    

         pipes level with the connecting point when re- 



When reconnecting the unit follow the above  

         steps in reverse. 

  Use your fingers to connect the threads and  

          then tighten fully with the spanners provided. 

  After connection, use soap suds to check for  

         leaks in the coolant pipes. 
Please Note 
The above procedures should be followed each time 
the units are disconnected and reconnected.
