For cooling operation, make sure the System or Mode control is set for Cooling. Then, adjust the Temperature
control to your desired setting. Finally, use the Fan control to select Automatic (turns on and off as cooling
is needed) or On (runs continuously).


Your air conditioner will run as long as necessary to maintain the indoor temperature selected on your
thermostat. On extremely hot days, your air conditioner will run for longer periods at a time than on moderate
days. Your system will also run for longer periods of time under the following conditions:

  • Frequent opening of exterior doors
  • Operating laundry appliances
  • Taking hot showers
  • More than the usual number of people present in the home
  • More than the normal number of electric lights in use
  • Drapes or blinds are open on the sunny side of the home


Simple, routine maintenance as described below will enhance your air conditioning system’s ability to operate
economically and dependably. Always remember the following safety precautions:

  • Keep Filter Clean
    A clogged or improperly installed air filter on your indoor unit will
    increase operating costs and shorten the life of the unit. For
    detailed filter cleaning information refer to indoor unit literature.
  • Do Not Block Floor,Wall or Ceiling Vents
    When drapes, furniture, toys or other common household items
    block vents, the restricted airflow lessens the system’s efficiency
    and life span.
  • Do Not Cover or Block Outdoor Unit
    The outdoor unit needs unrestricted airflow. Do not cover it or place items on or next to it. Do not allow
    grass clippings, leaves, or other debris to accumulate on the sides or top of the unit. And, maintain a 12”
    (304.8 mm) minimum clearance between the outdoor unit and tall grass, vines, shrubs, etc.
  • Check Condensate DrainYour air conditioner removes humidity from your home during the cooling season. After a
    few minutes of operation, water should trickle from the condensate drain of the indoor coil. Check this
    occasionally to be sure the drain system is not clogged. Drainage will be limited if you live in a very dry
  • Do Not Operate Below 55°F/12.78°C
    Your outdoor unit is not designed to operate when outdoor temperatures are lower than 55_F/12.78_C without
    modification. If operation below this temperature is required, consult your Bryant dealer.
  • Coil Cleaning
    Your indoor coil is located in a sealed cabinet on your indoor unit and will require minimal cleaning with
    routine filter maintenance. Longer operating cycles and reduced energy efficiency may indicate the need for a
    coil cleaning by your Bryant dealer.
  • Base Pan Drainage
    Periodically check for and remove debris that has settled around the base of your outdoor unit. This will
    ensure proper drainage of the base pan and eliminate standing water inside the outdoor unit.
  • Level Installation
    Your Bryant dealer will install the outdoor unit in a level position. If the support base settles or shifts and
    the unit is no longer level, be sure to re–level it promptly to assure proper drainage. If you notice water or
    ice collecting
