Controls (Mechanical) The unit is operated by two mechanically controlled knobs. There is a temperature knob and a cooling knob, which are rotated to select the preferred option.

Temperature Knob The temperature knob is thermostatically controlled and has settings from 1 - 7 (min/cool - max/cool). The temperature knob only functions when the cooling knob is selected to COOL .

Cooling Knob The cooling knob has two modes – a Fan Mode and a Cool Mode. This gives 4 settings Hi-Fan / Lo-Fan and Hi-Cool /Lo-Cool.

Fan Mode The fan mode, with its two speed settings - Hi-Fan / Lo-Fan, is only used to circulate un-cooled or stale air and is not used in conjunction with the temperature knob

Cool Mode The cool mode two ‘cool’ settings - Hi-Cool /Lo-Cool, are used in conjunction with the temperature knob to extend the range of cooling choice.
