Items Supplied in Exhaust Hose Fitting Kit.
Assembly of the Exhaust Hose
The exhaust hose is assembled by fitting the exhaust fixture to one end of the
hose and the exhaust duct connector to the other end of the hose. This is done
by screwing the connectors in an anti-clockwise direction onto the ends of the
The end of the hose fitted with the exhaust duct connector fitted is then
connected to the exhaust outlet at the back of the machine. Care should be
taken to ensure that the two rectangular cut-outs in the connector are located
over the two moulded fingers positioned on the diameter of the machine outlet.
The connector can be removed from the machine by rotating it slightly and
pulling it away from the machine at the same time.
The hose should then be extended and the exhaust fixture placed in an open
window to vent any warm or moist air extracted from the room, to the outside.
The window should be closed as far as possible to trap the nozzle as shown
Select a suitable location for the unit
The unit should be positioned beside a window or door to allow the vent hose to
reach outside the room.
The air intake should be a minimum distance of 10cm from any object.
Do not install the unit underneath desks or inside cupboards as this will restrict the
operating air flow.
Ensure that there are no obstructions to the air intake or air outlet.
Ensure that the air intake is not being blocked by curtains, or similar objects.
The end of the vent hose should not be blocked by a shutter or similar device.
When fitting the vent hose it should be kept as straight as possible.
If it is required to vent the unit permanently through an outside wall, it is recommended that
use is made of the separately available wall venting kit (details available from the Helpline)
which also contains an external grille and hose to pass through the wall.
1) Make a suitable size hole through the external wall to accept the hose in the wall
2) Secure the flexible ducting in the wall venting kit to the wall fitting using cable ties.
3) Pass the flexible ducting through the hole in the wall from the inside.
4) Fix the wall fitting to the surface of the internal wall using suitable wall plugs and
5) Attach the external grille to the other end of the flexible ducting using cable ties and
fix to the outside wall using suitable wall plugs and fixing screws.
6) Attach one end of the vent hose to the exhaust air outlet of the air conditioner.
7) Attach the end fitting from the wall fitting kit to the other end of the vent hose and fit it
into the wall fitting.
8) When not in use, cover the hole with the wall fitting cap.
Ensure that the draining bungs are firmly in place in the drain ports and
that the air outlet (on the top of the unit) is open, before operating the

Fit the batteries into the remote controller as shown above.
The remote controller can be used to switch the unit on and off up to a range of 10 metres
and is used to select the various modes and set the temperature or timer.
Note:- It is necessary for the remote controller to have a direct un-obstructed “line of sight”
with the front of the machine. If it is found that the remote controller does not always operate
the machine within the 10 metre range, this is an indication that the batteries may require

Air is dehumidified as it passes through the air conditioner and the warm air will be exhausted
by means of the vent hose. If the room temperature is greater than 25°C, the fan speed can
be adjusted, otherwise the fan speed is fixed at low speed.
Note:- The warm air from the exhaust hose must be vented into the room when using
Dehumidifying mode and not outside the room as in cooling mode. If the unit is vented
outside the room some cooling will occur. Do not use this mode below 16°C
Fan Mode [
Air is circulated throughout the room with no cooling.

°C / °F Button
Pressing this button will switch the display between degrees Celsius and degrees Fahrenheit.
When the appliance is in Cool mode, most moisture will be vented out through the vent pipe.
However, in certain circumstances some condensation may collect in the water tank at the
bottom of the chassis. When this tank is full, the “Water full” indicator will illuminate and the
appliance will stop running. The appliance should then be unplugged from the supply socket
and the rubber plug in drain port at the lower rear
of the machine should be pulled out to drain
the water into a suitable container. Alternatively, move the appliance to a suitable place to
drain the water.
Note: When the Water Full light is on, the water should be drained out.
If the water is not drained out, the appliance will not operate.
