Can A/C unit model LW1517IVSM be left mounted in window over winter in Chicago,IL?

I just purchased the A/C unit a month ago and in the safety instructions on page 4 of the owner's manual it says not to store and install it where it will be exposed to temperatures below freezing.

I just purchased the A/C unit a month ago and in the safety instructions on page 4 of the owner's manual it says not to store and install it where it will be exposed to temperatures below freezing. It doesn't say why. What will happen? I left all of my previous A/C units installed in the window over the winter and just put a cover on them and never had any problems. I don't recall any such precautions in the manuals. It gets below 0 degrees F at times. Can anyone help?

    dthurner, it can cause the components and the gas in the sealed system to freeze up and keep the unit from operating properly.
