HOW TO USE THE APPLIANCE
This appliance can be used for cooling, dehumidifying and ventilation purposes.
When switching between modes, the fan continues operating but the compressor stops: the compressor will start again 3
minutes later. This delay protects the compressor from potential damage.
THE DRAINAGE TUBE MUST BE CONNECTED to the appliance AT ALL TIMES: the only exception is when the
appliance is used in dehumidification mode only, in which case the appliance should be left to discharge directly
into the room for maximum efficiency (see the “Dehumidification Mode” paragraph).
Clean the air filters under the easily removable rear grille regularly to keep the air conditioner working efficiently.
OPERATING MODES
1. COOLING MODE (COOL)
 The “Cool” LED on the control panel will turn on.
 The temperature can be adjusted to between 16 °C and 32 °C.
 In this mode, each time the ON/OFF button is pressed the unit switches off, the appliance saves the temperature
setting and retains this setting when it is switched on again.
 In this mode, the fan speed can be adjusted and the Timer and SLEEP functions can be set.
 For more silent operation, run the fan at low speed.
2. DEHUMIDIFICATION MODE (DRY)
 Press the MODE button to select the dehumidification mode.
 The temperature is controlled by the electronic board and cannot be adjusted.
 In this mode, each time the ON/OFF button is pressed the unit switches off, the appliance saves the settings and
retains them when it is switched on again.
 The fan speed is set to low and cannot be adjusted.
NOTE
The air conditioner does not cool the room when operating as a dehumidifier.
When the appliance is used as a dehumidifier, the flexible pipe must not be connected.
For maximum dehumidification efficiency, leave the rear discharge attachment free to discharge directly into
the environment.
The dehumidification mode is recommended during autumn and winter.
If used during summer, it is best to leave the flexible pipe attached so that the hot air is discharged towards
the outside rather than into the room.
Cooling, Ventilation
Dehumidification

V 12/16
During dehumidification, continuous drainage should be implemented (see the next chapter, “HOW TO ELIMINATE
CONDENSATE”).
3. FAN ONLY MODE
 Press the MODE button until the Fan icon displays.
 In this mode, the fan speed can be set.
 The temperature cannot be regulated.
HOW TO ELIMINATE CONDENSATE
Cooling
This appliance automatically vaporises condensate in the cooling mode.
Ensure that when the unit is operating in cooling mode, the rubber caps closing the
drainage holes on the rear of the appliance are properly positioned.
When the air conditioner operates in cooling mode, there is no need for continuous
condensate drainage; only in specific weather conditions with very high air humidity
levels may water deposit inside the unit. When the internal container is full, the display
visualises message “P1” and the appliance stops functioning.
To empty the container, switch the air conditioner off and unplug it. Remove the cap
form the rear drainage hole and direct it over a normal drain.
Ensure that the tube is not twisted or bent. The tube must slope downwards. Re-close
the drainage hole with the cap and resume use of the air conditioner.
Dehumidification
WARNING!
When using the air conditioner in dehumidification mode, it is advisable to always
arrange for continuous drainage, so as to maximise dehumidification efficiency.
Connect one end of the PVC pipe provided to the rear discharge hole and place the
other end above a drain.

2. Cleaning the casing.
Use a damp and soft cloth to clean the outer surface of the
appliance.
Do not use excessively hot water, solvents, petrol or other
aggressive chemical compounds, talcum powder or brushes:
these may damage the surface or colour of the casing.
Remove any stains using lukewarm water with a little neutral
detergent.
Do not pour water onto the air conditioner to clean it, as this may
damage its internal components or cause a short-circuit.
3. Storage.
When you do not expect to use the air conditioner for a long time,
clean the filters before storing it away.
Keep the appliance in a vertical position at all times. Do not place
heavy objects on top of the air conditioner. It is advisable to
protect the appliance with a plastic sheet.
4. Transport.
Where possible, transport the air conditioner in the vertical
