Requirements for Use
❏ This appliance must be connected to a 220/240
V 50 Hz mains electricity supply using an
earthed plug.
❏ It must be protected with a 10 A slow-action fuse.
❏ Should an extension lead be needed, this lead
must be at least 1,5 mm2
per terminal thick, no
more than 25 m. long and earthed.
❏ There is a cavity at the back of the appliance for
the mains electricity supply connection wire.
❏ Do not allow water to enter the appliance.
❏ Do not block the air inlets or outlets on your
appliance, especially when used for heating.
Should the mains electricity supply wire be
damaged in any way, it must only be replaced with
a wire of similar characteristics. Get in touch with
the manufacturer, after-sales service or similarly
qualified person.
Warning!
If the appliance is turned off and then turned
back on again, there is a 3-minute interval
before the compressor starts up again. This
interval is necessary in order for the appliance
to work properly.
Transportation
requirements
There are castors fitted on your appliance to make
moving it easier. If it is necessary to tilt your
appliance in order to move it, then the internal
water tank must be drained first. To do this, connect
drainage pipe to stopcock at the bottom of the
appliance.
Warning!
Be particularly careful when transporting this
unit. There is a water drainage pipe on the
bottom of the appliance which may break if
knocked.
Requirements for
use
Page: 22
Temperature
control
❏ Plug your appliance in.
❏ Lead the hot-air expulsion duct outdoors.
❏ Set to maximum or silent temperature
control.
❏ Turn the drainage stopcock to the cooling
position.
❏ Set the required temperature with the and
buttons.
❏ The appliance lowers the temperature and dries
the air in the room at the same time in order to
create ideal air conditions.
❏ If the appliance turns itself off due to the
thermostat, it will come back on again
automatically when the ambient temperature
rises 2°C!
❏ Condensed water formed during air conditioning
evaporates automatically and is expelled
outdoors, together with hot air, through the hot-
air expulsion duct.
❏ In conditions of extreme humidity, the appliance
accumulates water in an internal tank.
❏ When the water in this tank reaches a certain
level, safety pilot light comes on, indicating that
the tank needs to be emptied.
❏ You may also use the Dehumidification Mode to
empty the water. To do this,
first turn the appliance off and wait 10 minutes in
order for the safety systems to reset. Having
done this, proceed as described in the section
"Dehumidification".
Instructions for Use

Ways of releasing
air outdoors
❏ Connect the diffusion duct to the hot-air
expulsion duct.
❏ Leave the window ajar and feed the
air–expulsion nozzle through the gap. On
windows with double frames, feed the expulsion
nozzle through the gap in the middle.
❏ Close the window as much as possible and
secure it in place using the suction pad provided.
Temporary installation
Permanent installation The appliance can be installed on a permanent
basis using window/wall Optional Accessory,
reference B1 RKZ 06009, available from your
supplier.
❏ A hole must be made in the wall and the wall
accessory fitted in order to expel hot air.
❏ Store the diffusion duct away and connect the air
expulsion duct to the accessory.
❏ Only the transparent end section of the
accessory is used when air is to be expelled
through a window on a permanent basis. A 10.5
cm. diameter hole must be made in the glass in
order to fit the accessory.
N.B.
• Do not extend the hot-air expulsion duct more
than necessary (maximum length: 140 cm.).
• There must be a distance of at least 70 cm.
between the floor and the end of the duct.
• Do not bend the duct too sharply when
positioning it.
This can impede proper hot-air expulsion, which
may reduce cooling efficiency.

The air inside a room is circulated through a set of
purifying filters when the appliance is set to this
function.
❏ The appliance comes with a main filter with a
double active purifying filter. This special filter is
for:
- Smells and smoke.
- Pollen, bacteria and dust.
❏ Put the air expulsion duct in the same position
as for dehumidification.
❏ Set purification speed setting:
maximum or silent .
❏ We recommend you leave the optional filters in
position regardless of the desired function setting
(cooling, dehumidification, air purification). The
appliance purifies the air more efficiently in this
way.
When set to , the appliance removes humidity
from the atmosphere. It does not, however, control
the temperature.
❏ Turn drainage stopcock 90° in an anti-clockwise
direction.
❏ Remove stopcock plug and insert drainage pipe.
stored in the main filter compartment.
❏ Place a bowl at the drainage pipe outlet to collect
the condensed water in.
❏ Put the air extraction duct in storage position.
❏ Set control knob to dehumidification position .
❏ The amount of water removed from the air can
reach as much as 30 liters/24 hours, depending
on atmospheric conditions.
Warning!
• Do not forget to put the plug back in place on
the drainage stopcock and to turn the
stopcock 90° in a clockwise direction before
setting the appliance to the temperature
control setting. The appliance will shed water
should you fail to do so.
• If the "Dehumidification" light flashes on and
off, then room temperature is lower than 18°C.
Always remember that in order for the
dehumidification function to work properly,
ambient temperature must be at least 18°C.

Things that can save you from
making unnecessary phone calls
The following procedures can help you solve a
number of small problems and save you from
contacting our Technical Service unnecessarily.
If after performing the procedures described the
problem persists or happens again, then contact
our specialised technicians.
❏ Make sure that the appliance is plugged in properly.
❏ Make sure that there is power in the mains
electricity supply and all the fuses are in working
order.
❏ Select a lower temperature with the button.
❏ Place the appliance on a flat surface. If the pilot
light still doesn’t go out, then empty the appliance’s
internal water tank. (See instructions for
Temperature Control or Dehumidification).
❏ Make sure that the drainage stopcock is set to the
right position.
❏ Make sure that the connections on hot-air expulsion
duct are in working order.
❏ Make sure that the expulsion duct is not
excessively bent or longer than 140 cm.

... the appliance makes a lot
of noise ...
... the appliance is switched
on but the compressor is
not running ...
❏ Make sure that the air extraction duct is properly
fitted onto the appliance.
❏ Make sure that the appliance’s air inlets and outlets
are free from obstruction.
❏ If the noise sounds like water flowing, then this is
due to the pump which circulates water around the
system so as to enhance the efficiency of the
appliance.
Warning!
Any other kind of fault or repair work must be
dealt with by a specialised technician. Contact
your authorised supplier, the after-sales service or
the Technical Service Network.
❏ Whenever the appliance is switched on, the 3-
minute switch-on delay is activated. The
compressor will then start audibly after 3 minutes.
❏ If the dehumidification LED flashes, the appliance
has been set to dehumidification mode and the
ambient temperature is below 18°C. The
compressor therefore switches off (see also
information on “Dehumidification only”).
❏ The ambient temperature must be above 18°C for
the appliance to operate in dehumidification mode.
❏ If “F1” or “F2” is displayed, the temperature
sensors are defective. Call customer service!.
