If the air conditioner is not going to be used for a
long period of time:
• Operate in FAN only mode for 1~2 hours to
allow the unit to completely dry out.
• Switch off the unit and pull out the power
plug. Remove the batteries from the remote
control.
• The outdoor unit requires periodic
maintenance and cleaning. Do not attempt
to do this yourself. Contact your dealer or

OPERATION TIPS
The following events may occur during normal
operation:
Protection of the air conditioner.
• Compressor protection - The compressor
can’t restart for 3 minutes after it stops
• Anti-freezing - If the unit is operating
in COOL mode and in low ambient
temperature, frost may be formed on
the heat exchanger. When indoor heat
exchanger temperature decreases below
0ºC, the compressor will stop operation to
protect the unit.
• Defrosting - Frost may form on the outdoor
unit in heating operation when the outdoor
temperature is low but humidity is high,
resulting in low heating efficiency. During this
condition the air conditioner will stop heating
operation and start defrosting automatically.
The time to defrost may vary from 3 to 12
minutes. During defrosting, the fan motors
of indoor unit and outdoor unit will stop,
the indoor indicator flashes “H1” and the
outdoor unit may emit vapour. This is not
malfunction. After defrosting is finished, the
heating operation will recover automatically.
• Anti-cold air - In HEAT mode, the indoor fan
will not operate in order to prevent cold air
being blown into the room (within 5 minutes),
if the indoor heat exchanger does not reach
a minimum temperature under the following
states:
1. Heating operation just start.
2. After auto defrosting is just finished.
3. Heating at low temperature.
A white mist coming out from the indoor
unit
• A white mist may generate due to a large
temperature difference between air inlet
and air outlet in COOL mode in an indoor
environment that has a high relative humidity.
• A white mist may generate due to moisture
generated from defrosting process when
the air conditioner restarts in HEAT mode
operation after defrosting.
Low noise of the air conditioner
• You may hear a low hissing sound when
the compressor is running or has just stop
running. This is the sound of the refrigerant
flowing or coming to a stop.
• You also may hear a low “squeak” sound
when the compressor is running or just
stopped running. This is caused by heat
expansion and cold contraction of the plastic
parts in the unit when the temperature is
changing.
• A noise may be heard due to louvre restoring
to its original position when power is first
turned on.
Dust is blown out from the indoor unit
This is a normal condition when the air
conditioner has not been used for a long time or
during first use of the unit.
A peculiar smell comes out from the indoor

Condensation
Condensate water is likely to form at the air
outlet if cooling or drying for a long time when
the relative humidity is more than 80% (with
doors and windows open).
Set the vertical louvre to its maximum angle (to
the floor) and High fan speed. Close the doors
and windows.
Lighting or a car wireless telephone
operating nearby may cause the unit to
malfunction.
Disconnect the unit with power and then reconnect the unit with power again. Push ON/
OFF button on the remote control to restart
operation.

The indoor unit may keep running after you
switch off the unit by pressing ON/OFF button.
Please check whether the X-Fan function is
switched off.

The following checks prior to contact may save you time and money.
Malfunctions
Cause
The unit does not operate
The unit does not operate if it is turned on immediately after it is turned off. This is
to protect the unit. Please wait about 3 minutes.
Odours are emitted
•
•
Some odours may be emitted from the indoor unit. This is the result of room
smells (such as furniture, tobacco, etc.) which have been taken into the unit.
Consult authorised service centre for cleaning if the odours persist.
“Water flowing” noise
The swishing noise like water flowing is the refrigerant flowing inside the unit.
Mist is emitted in COOL mode
During cooling operation, a thin mist may be seen emitted from the indoor unit
due to high room temperature and humidity. After a period of time, the mist will
disappear as the decrease of room temperature and humidity.
Cracking noise
This is the sound of friction caused by expansion and/or contraction of panel or
other parts due to the change of temperature.
The unit can not be started up

Water leakage of indoor unit
•
•
•
The humidity is high.
Condensing water overflows.
Drain hose is loose or obstructed.
Water leakage of outdoor unit
•
During cooling operation, water condensates around the pipes and
connection joints.
During defrosting operation, thawed water flows out.
During heating operation, water on the heat exchanger drips out.
•
•
Noise from indoor unit
•
•
The noise emitted when the fan or compressor relay is switched on or off.
When the defrosting operation is started or stopped, there is a sound of
refrigerant flowing in the reverse direction.
Indoor unit can not blow air
•
In HEAT mode, when the temperature of indoor heat exchanger is very low,
airflow is stopped in order to prevent cold air. (within 2 minutes)
In HEAT mode, when the outdoor temperature is low or humidity is high,
frost will be formed on the outdoor heat exchanger. The unit will defrost
automatically and indoor unit will stop blowing air for 2-3 minutes.
During defrosting operation, water or vapour may be emitted.
In DEHUMIDIFY mode, the indoor fan will stop blowing air for 3-12 minutes in
order to avoid condensing water being vaporised again.

•
•
Moisture on air outlet
If the unit operates at high humidity for a long time, moisture may be generated on
air outlet grill and then drip off.
