Anchor Marine Air Conditioner Manual?

I just bought an Anchor brand 7000 BTU marine air conditioner off the clearance table at local marine supply store to replace my 5,000 btu carry on. The catch is Anchor went out of business a couple of years ago, and this was a display unit (thankfully all the parts are there, clips thermostat, etc.) only the owners manual is missing. By chance does anyone have a spare manual for one of these units, a PDF of a manual, etc?


thanks Ike Stewart

I still have not been able to find any information on this unit (except for a wiring diagram in the electrical box), I did hook it up to test it out at my house this weekend plumbed to a wheelbarrow full of water , and everything appears to work. My only issue now is I don't know if the digital control has any timer, or other advanced programming features, or if there is an way to manually adjust fan speed. There is a fan speed indicator, and the unit automaticly slows the fan as it approaches the preset temperature (at least in cool mode), in reverese cycle heat mode this feature appears to be broken as it works backwards. So if anyone out there has an Anchor Air condtioner with digital control, I could use a some help.

As an update for those that may be lurking, I never did find an owners manual for the system, however reading manuals for other similar systems helped a great deal. Also I found the maker of the digital control used in my Anchor system, the same company (Micro air) makes a number of other similar digital controls for other marine air conditioner brands, the one on my unit is called an FX-1.

Anchor Marine AC

Hello group:

Did anyone find an operating manual?

Can anyone point me to the old dealer for Anchor manufacturing in San Diego, CA.?

How did the unit work for you all this time?

I am facing a similar situation maybe buying a used unit.

Regards,

Ed
