Information for multi system air conditioner (Outdoor unit: MXZ series)
Multi system air conditioner (Outdoor unit: MXZ series) can connect two or more indoor units with one outdoor
unit. According to the capacity, two or more units can operate simultaneously.
• When you try to operate two or more indoor units with one outdoor unit simultaneously, one for the cooling and the
other for heating, the operation mode of the indoor unit that operates earlier is selected. The other indoor units that will
start the operation later cannot operate, indicating an operation state. (Refer to the table of Operation Indicator lamp on page 6.)
In this case, please set all the indoor units to the same operation mode.
• When indoor unit starts the operation while the defrosting of outdoor unit is being done, it takes a few minutes (max.
10 minutes) to blow out the warm air.
• In the heating operation, the indoor unit that does not operate may get warm or the sound of refrigerant flowing may
be heard. This is not a malfunction since the refrigerant continuously flows into the indoor unit that does not operate.

When a power failure occurs. • Does the air conditioner start operating again?
If the air conditioner had operated before the
power failure, as these models are equipped
with an auto restart function, the air conditioner
should start operating again. (Refer to Description
of “AUTO RESTART FUNCTION” on page 6.)
Even if the above items are checked, when the air conditioner does not
recover from the trouble, stop using the air conditioner and consult your
dealer.
In the following cases, stop using the air conditioner and consult your dealer.
• When water leaks or drops from the indoor unit.
• When the left operation indicator lamp blinks.
• When the breaker trips frequently.
• The remote control signal may not be received in a room where an electronic
ON/OFF type fluorescent lamp (inverter-type fluorescent lamp, etc.) is used.
• Operation of the air conditioner may interfere with radio or TV reception in areas
where the reception is weak. An amplifier may be required for the affected
device.
• When thunder is heard, stop operation and disconnect the power supply plug
or turn off the breaker. Otherwise, the electrical parts may be damaged.
• In DRY operation, the unit operates using the
same refrigerant circuit as in COOL operation.
DRY operation time has to be reduced in order
to lower humidity without much room temperature decreasing. So the compressor sometimes
stops, and at the same time the indoor fan stops.
This prevents water condensed on the heat
exchanger from evaporating again.

INSTALLATION, RELOCATION AND INSPECTION
Installation place
The installation location of the outdoor unit should be at least
3 m away from the antennas for TV sets, radios, etc. In areas
where the reception is weak, provide greater space between the
outdoor unit and the antenna of the affected device if operation
of the air conditioner interferes with radio or TV reception.
Avoid installing the air conditioner in the following places.
• Where flammable gas could leak.
CAUTION:
Do not install the unit where flammable gas could leak.
If gas leaks and collects around the unit, it may cause
an explosion.

Drain the water from the unit to the soil which has good
drainage.
Cooling and heating capacity may get lowered 10% in the places where poor ventilation and short-cycle of air exchange
is likely to occur.
WARNING:
If the air conditioner operates but does not cool or heat (depending on model) the room, consult your dealer since
there may be a refrigerant leak. Be sure to ask the service representative whether there is refrigerant leakage or not
when repairs are carried out.
The refrigerant charged in the air conditioner is safe. Refrigerant normally does not leak, however, if refrigerant gas
leaks indoors, and comes into contact with the fire of a fan heater, space heater, stove, etc., harmful substances will
be generated.
Electrical work
• Provide an exclusive circuit for the power supply of the air conditioner.
• Be sure to observe the breaker capacity.
WARNING:
• The customer should not install this unit.
If installation is done incorrectly, it may cause a fire, an electric shock, or injury from the unit falling, water leaking, etc.
• Do not use intermediate connection of the power supply cord or the extension cord and do not connect many
devices to one AC outlet.
A fire or an electric shock may result from poor contact, poor insulation, exceeding the permissible current, etc.
Consult your dealer.
CAUTION:
• Earth the unit.
Do not connect the earth to a gas pipe, water pipe, lightning rod or the earth of a telephone. If the earthing is incorrect,
it may cause an electric shock.
• Install an earth leakage breaker depending on the place where the air conditioner is to be installed (humid places, etc.).
If the earth leakage breaker is not installed, it may cause an electric shock.
Inspection and maintenance
• When the air conditioner is used for several seasons, the capacity may be lowered due to dirt inside the unit.
• Depending on the condition, an odor may be generated or dehumidified water may not drain out smoothly due to dirt, dust,
etc. This may cause water leakage from the unit.
• It is recommended that the unit be inspected and maintained (charged) by specialist in addition to normal maintenance.
Consult your dealer.
Operating sound considerations
• Do not put an object around the air outlet of the outdoor unit. This may lower the capacity or increase the volume of the
operating sound.
• If an abnormal sound is heard during operation, consult your dealer.
• Choose a place which endures the unit weight enough and does not amplify the unit vibration.
• Choose a place in which the operation sound and air blow from the unit don’t bother the house next door.
Relocation
• When the air conditioner is to be removed or re-installed because of rebuilding, moving, etc., special techniques and work
are required.
WARNING:
Repairs or relocation should not be done by the customer.
If this is done incorrectly, it may cause a fire, an electric shock, or an injury from the unit falling, water leaking, etc.
Consult your dealer.
