7-1. TIMER SHORT MODE
For service, set time can be shortened by short circuit of JPG and JPS the indoor electronic control P.C. board.
The time will be shortened as follows. (Refer to 9-7.)
Set time: 1-minute 1-second
Set time: 3-minute 3-second (It takes 3 minutes for the compressor to start operation. However, the starting time is
shortened by short circuit of JPG and JPS.)
7-2. P.C. BOARD MODIFICATION FOR INDIVIDUAL OPERATION
A maximum of 4 indoor units with wireless remote controllers can be used in a room.
In this case, to operate each indoor unit individually by each remote controller, P.C. boards of remote controller must be
modified according to the number of the indoor unit.
How to modify the remote controller P.C. board
Remove batteries before modification.
The board has a print as shown below:
NOTE: For modification, take out the batteries and
press the OPERATE/STOP (ON/OFF) button twice or 3 times at first.
After finish modification, put back the batteries then press the RESET button.
J1
J2
The P.C. board has the print “J1” and “J2”. Solder “J1” and “J2” according to the number of indoor unit as shown in Table 1.
After modification, press the RESET button.

How to set the remote controller exclusively for particular indoor unit
After you turn the breaker ON, the first remote controller that sends the signal to the indoor unit will be regarded as the remote
controller for the indoor unit.
The indoor unit will only accept the signal from the remote controller that has been assigned to the indoor unit once they are
set.
The setting will be cancelled if the breaker has turned OFF, or the power supply has shut down.
Please conduct the above setting once again after the power has restored.

7-3. AUTO RESTART FUNCTION
When the indoor unit is controlled with the remote controller, the operation mode, the set temperature, and the fan speed
are memorized by the indoor electronic control P.C. board. “AUTO RESTART FUNCTION” automatically starts operation in
the same mode just before the shutoff of the main power.
Operation
If the main power has been cut, the operation settings remain.
After the power is restored, the unit restarts automatically according to the memory.
(However, it takes at least 3 minutes for the compressor to start running.)
How to release “AUTO RESTART FUNCTION”
Turn off the main power of the unit.
Solder the Jumper wire JR07 on the indoor electronic control P.C. board. (Refer to 9-7.)

NOTE:
• The operation settings are memorized when 10 seconds have passed after the indoor unit was operated with the
remote controller.
• If main power is turned OFF or a power failure occurs while AUTO START/STOP timer is active, the timer setting is
cancelled.
• If the unit has been off with the remote controller before power failure, the auto restart function does not work as the
power button of the remote controller is OFF.
• To prevent breaker OFF due to the rush of starting current, systematize other home appliance not to turn ON at the
same time.
• When some air conditioners are connected to the same supply system, if they are operated before power failure, the
starting current of all the compressors may flow simultaneously at restart.
Therefore, the special counter-measures are required to prevent the main voltage-drop or the rush of the starting
current by adding to the system that allows the units to start one by one.
7-4. REMOTE CONTROLLER (MSZ-FE09NA MSZ-FE12NA)
Be sure to set the slide switch inside the remote controller to an appropriate position in accordance with the installed
position of the indoor unit. If the switch is not set correctly, the air conditioner may not function properly.

The sensors constantly measure the room and floor/wall temperatures to automatically adjust to the set temperature by estimating the temperature actually perceived by a person inside the room (“sensory temperature”).
Advantages
· The air inside the room is conditioned quickly to a comfortable condition.
· The room will not become too cold or hot even when the air conditioner is kept on for a long period.
· The air conditioner will not overcool or overheat, which means you can save on electricity.
i-see control operation is activated when i-see button is pressed with a thin stick in manual COOL or manual HEAT mode.
NOTE: i-see control operation is activated when the remote controller is first used following replacement of the batteries
or resetting of the remote controller.
i-see control operation is cancelled when i-see button is pressed with a thin stick once again.
NOTE: If the conditioner is turned OFF without cancelling i-see control operation, i-see control operation is activated the
next time the air conditioner is turned ON.
i-see Sensor
i-see Sensor, which is installed on the upper of the air outlet of the indoor unit, is moved with the stepping motor and it
detects the floor/wall temperature.
