While the air conditioner is running, if the temperature of the internal pipes gets too cold, the unit will automatically shut off in order to prevent frost buildup and the display will show "DF." Once the pipes have warmed enough, the unit will automatically return to normal operation.
"WATER FULL" Alarm
When enough water has built up in the internal tank (either from de-humidification mode or normal operation in humid areas), you will hear an alarm and the display will read "FL." You will need to drain the tank through the drain plug on the bottom of the back of the unit in order to return to normal operation.
Compressor 3-Minute Delay
When the compressor inside the unit shuts off, it will keep itself off for 3 minutes before starting up again in order to maintain its efficiency.

Control Panel and Remote
Press this button to set the timer. After pressing it, the screen will display "0." Press the up and down arrows (#4 above) to change the timer in 1-hour increments from 0 to 24 hours. After choosing your time, wait a few seconds and the timer will start. Setting the timer while the unit is on will cause the unit to turn off after the time has elapsed. Setting the timer while the unit is off (by pressing the timer button instead of the on button) will cause the unit to turn on after the time has elapsed.
Press this button to change the speed of the fan. In "cool" and "fan" modes, you can select between all three fan speeds. If the unit is in "dry" mode, only the "low" fan speed will be available. You can also set the fan speed while the unit is off, as long as you set the timer first. Once the set time has elapsed, the unit will come on and run at whatever fan speed you selected.
This display will show the ambient temperature in the room while the unit is plugged in but turned off or while the unit is on and in "fan" or "dry" mode. When in "cool" mode, the display will show the temperature setting you chose. While setting the timer, the display will show the current number of hours that you have chosen.
These buttons are used to adjust the temperature and time settings. Press these two buttons simultaneously to change the displayed temperature from Fahrenheit to Celsius.
Press this button to cycle between "cool," "dry," and "fan" mode. "Cool" mode is the normal air conditioning mode, which will put out cold air and maintain whatever ambient temperature you choose. "Dry" mode enables the Dehumidification feature. Be sure to check the drain plug regularly, as moisture will build up as the unit runs in "dry" mode. "Fan" mode is the same as "cool," except the unit will simply run as a fan without cooling the air. Note: "fan" and "dry" modes do not require the use of the exhaust pipe.
Press this button to turn the unit on and off.
The remote control allows you to perform all the same functions as on the control panel. Additionally, there is a "swing" feature, which will oscillate the panel on the front vent and increase the cooling area.
Assembly and Instruction
Choosing a Location
Always keep the unit on a flat surface and in a dry place. Keep at least 508 mm of space on all sides of the unit to maintain efficiency and safety.
Assembling the Exhaust
- Connect the exhaust pipe to the round joiner disc, turning counter clockwise (as shown in Fig. 6).
- Connect the end of the exhaust pipe with the joiner disc to the exhaust output on the back of the unit, turning counter-clockwise (as shown in Fig. 7).
- Connect the opposite end of the exhaust pipe to the window plate. The plastic oval-shaped end if the pipe is meant to be inserted into the opening in the window plate, pushed slightly to the side (to lock it in behind the 4 small latches) and then screwed into the plate through the holes in the end of the exhaust pipe.
- Install the window plate on the nearest window, being careful to keep the exhaust hose as straight as possible, to maintain efficiency.
The exhaust pipe extends from 610 to 687 mm long (including the plastic adapters). We recommend keeping the pipe as short as possible (and as straight as possible) to maintain efficiency.
The length of the exhaust pipe is designed in accordance with the specifications of this air conditioner. Do not modify these parts or use alternative parts, as it may cause damage to the unit or prevent it from working efficiently.
Installing the Window Plate
The window plate is designed to be adjusted for almost any standard vertical/horizontal window opening. Measure the gap in the window, extend the plate to match the correct length.
Cleaning & Care
Warning: Before performing any cleaning, remember to turn off and unplug the unit.
Cleaning the Outside Surface
Clean the surface of the unit with a duster or damp, soft cloth. Do not use chemical reagents such as benzene, alcohol, gasoline, etc. as the surface of the unit is likely to be damaged and the internal components may be as well.
Cleaning the Dust Filter
If the filter is blocked by dust, air circulation will be limited and the unit will not run efficiently. If the unit is being used daily, the filter should be cleaned once every 2 weeks. To clean the filter, pull down on the two tabs and tilt away from the unit. Soak in warm water and a neutral detergent or use a vacuum or compressed air can remove dust buildup. Make sure it's completely dry before placing it back in the unit.
Long Term Storage
During the winter or any time the unit will not be used for several months at a time, it is recommended that you follow these measures to keep your unit in good shape.
- Drain the water tank by removing the drain plug from the bottom of the back of the unit.
- Dry out any moisture buildup inside the unit by entering fan mode, then pressing and holding the "speed" button for 5 seconds. The screen will show "CL" to indicate that the unit is in cleaning mode. Let run in this mode for 2-3 hours to completely dry out the internal components.
- Turn off the unit and unplug the power cord.
- Wind the power cord around the cord wrapping brackets on the back of the unit.
- Remove the exhaust pipe, clean out any dust built up inside and compress it before storing in a location free from dust.
- Cover the air conditioner (and exhaust kit) with a plastic bag or a large sheet to prevent dust buildup.
- Remove the batteries from the remote control and store them or dispose of them properly.
The air conditioner does not work
The unit is not turned on or plugged in, the power source is not functioning, the water tank is full, the timer has elapsed, the power cord safety switch has been tripped
Ensure the unit is plugged into a functional outlet and turned on. Empty the tank, disable the timer and reset the power cord safety switch if needed.
The air conditioner is not cooling
The air vents are blocked, other sources of heat are affecting the unit, the filters are too dirty, the temperature setting is too high, the fan speed is set too low
Ensure that all vents are not blocked and that the dust
filter is clean. Set the temperature below the ambient temperature and raise the fan speed to high.
The air conditioner is making too much noise or shaking while running
The floor under the unit is not even, the unit is not standing securely
Ensure that the unit is set on stable flooring.
If the following issues occur, immediately turn off the unit, unplug it and contact customer service.
- The power cord is overheating or its coating is exposed or damaged.
- The air conditioner is producing an abnormal odour.
- The display is showing "E1" or "E2" (likely an issue with a faulty component)
If the troubleshooting above has not rectified your issue, contact Kogan support.
