RAVTRANS Kit will fit the following GE Appliances plenum kits: RAVWP6, RAVWP8, RAVWP12 and RAVWP15. This kit will not work for the Large Chassis 18,000 BTU/hr Heat Pump models.

RAVTRANS kit is required when replacing an AZ75/AZ85 series vertical air conditioner with a new AZ90/91 series vertical air conditioner. Differences in chassis designs between the AZ75/AZ85 series and AZ90/91 series require careful installation planning. Changes in drain exit locations and drain routing, electrical connections, platform height, conditioned air duct location and additional space requirements for installation of RAVTRANS kit are all items that need to be considered when replacing a AZ75/AZ85 series unit with an AZ90/91 series unit.

Installation of a new AZ90/91 series unit with a transition plenum will take up approximately 2-1/2 of additional closet space once the unit is fully installed. Before starting the conversion be sure there is adequate closet space to meet the manufactures recommend minimum clearance requirements.

STEP 2 Install and Connect the Transition Plenum to the Existing Wall Plenum NOTE: The Drain pan must be installed into the transition plenum prior to screwing the transition plenum to the existing wall plenum.

1. Before mounting the transitional plenum, install a piece of precut insulation to the bottom of the transitional plenum. Insulation should be installed flush with the front side of the transitional plenum and overhang slightly on the other side.

2. Align drain pan outlet with the cutout in the bottom of the transition plenum. Drop drain pan into place. 3. Place the transitional plenum in front of the existing wall plenum with the flange side facing away from the wall

plenum. 4. Align the transitional plenum mounting holes to the mounting holes on the existing wall plenum. The top of the

transitional plenum should be even with the top of the existing wall plenum. 5. Attach the transitional plenum to the wall plenum with the 6 supplied screws. 6. Install the 3 remaining pieces of insulation to the top and sides of the transitional plenum.

STEP 3 Platform Height Adjustment

1. In most AZ75/AZ85 to AZ90/91 conversions the existing platform will need to be lowered to accommodate the new AZ90/91 vertical air conditioner. Having the correct platform height will ease installation of the unit by allowing the back of the unit to slide right into the transition plenum, the sealing gasket should be lubricated with soapy water or similar solution to reduce the friction between the side of the unit and the gasket.

2. Refer to the installation instructions that came with the unit to complete the installation.

1. Dans la plupart des conversions AZ75/AZ85 AZ90/91, la plateforme existante devra tre abaisse pour sadapter au nouveau climatiseur vertical AZ90/91. Une hauteur de plateforme approprie facilitera linstallation en permettant larrire de lappareil de glisser directement dans le plenum de transition. Le joint dtanchit devrait tre lubrifi avec de leau savonneuse ou une solution similaire afin de rduire la friction entre le ct de lappareil et le joint.
