INFORMATION FOR THE AIR CONDITIONER WITH R410A REFRIGERANT
oil
Refrigerant
Refrigerant
• This room air conditioner adopts an HFC refrigerant (R410A) which never destroys the ozone layer.
• Pay particular attention to the following points, though the basic installation procedure is same as that for R22 conditioners.
As R410A has working pressure approximate 1.6 times as high as that of R22, some special tools and piping parts/materials are required. Refer to the table below.
Take sufficient care not to allow water and other contaminations to enter the R410A refrigerant during storage and installation, since it is more susceptible to contaminations than R22.
For refrigerant piping, use clean, pressure-proof parts/materials specifically designed for R410A. (Refer to 2. Refrigerant
piping.)
Composition change may occur in R410A since it is a mixed refrigerant. When charging, charge liquid refrigerant to prevent
composition change.

1. Tools dedicated for the air conditioner with R410A refrigerant
The following tools are required for R410A refrigerant. Some R22 tools can be substituted for R410A tools.
The diameter of the service port on the stop valve in outdoor unit has been changed to prevent any other refrigerant being
charged into the unit. Cap size has been changed from 7/16 UNF with 20 threads to 1/2 UNF with 20 threads.
R410A tools
Description
Can R22 tools be used?
R410A has high pressures beyond the measurement range of existing
gauges. Port diameters have been changed to prevent any other refrigerant
from being charged into the unit.

• Use a copper pipe or a copper-alloy seamless pipe with a thickness of 0.8 mm. Never use any pipe with a thickness less
than 0.8mm, as the pressure resistance is insufficient.
Flaring work and flare nut
Flaring work for R410A pipe differs from that for R22 pipe.
For details of flaring work, refer to Installation manual “FLARING WORK”.

3. Refrigerant oil
Apply the special refrigerant oil (accessories: packed with indoor unit) to the flare and the union seat surfaces.
4. Air purge
Do not discharge the refrigerant into the atmosphere.
Take care not to discharge refrigerant into the atmosphere during installation, reinstallation, or repairs to the refrigerant
circuit.
Use the vacuum pump for air purging for the purpose of environmental protection.
5. Additional charge
For additional charging, charge the refrigerant from liquid phase of the gas cylinder.
If the refrigerant is charged from the gas phase, composition change may occur in the refrigerant inside the cylinder and
the outdoor unit. In this case, ability of the refrigerating cycle decreases or normal operation can be impossible. However,
charging the liquid refrigerant all at once may cause the compressor to be locked. Thus, charge the refrigerant slowly.

6. Pumping Down
When relocating or disposing of the air conditioner, pump down the system by following the procedure below so that no
refrigerant is released into the atmosphere.
1 Turn off the power supply (circuit breaker).
2 Connect the gauge manifold valve to the service port of the stop valve on the gas pipe side of the outdoor unit.
3 Fully close the stop valve on the liquid pipe side of the outdoor unit.
4 Supply power (circuit breaker).
5 Perform the refrigerant collecting operation (cooling test run).
• For the PAR-31MAA, select “Service” → “TestRun” from the main menu to start the test run, and then select the cooling
mode.
• For details or for other information about starting the test run when using remote controllers, refer to the installation manual
for the indoor unit or the remote controller.
6 Fully close the stop valve on the gas pipe side of the outdoor unit when the pressure gauge shows 0.05 to 0 MPa [Gauge]
(approx. 0.5 to 0 kgf/cm²) and quickly stop the air conditioner.
• Push the “ON/OFF” button on the remote controller to stop the air conditioner.
Note:
When the extension piping is very long with a large refrigerant amount, it may not be possible to perform a pump down
operation. In this case, use refrigerant recovery equipment to collect all of the refrigerant in the system.
7 Turn off the power supply (circuit breaker), remove the gauge manifold valve, and then disconnect the refrigerant pipes.
.Warning: When pumping down the refrigerant, stop the compressor before disconnecting the refrigerant pipes.
• If the refrigerant pipes are disconnected while the compressor is operating and the stop valve (ball valve) is open,
the pressure in the refrigeration cycle could become extremely high if air is drawn in, causing the pipes to burst,
personal injury, etc.

11-1. CAUTIONS ON TROUBLESHOOTING
1. Before troubleshooting, check the following:
1) Check the power supply voltage.
2) Check the indoor/outdoor connecting wire for miswiring.
2. Take care the following during servicing.
1) Before servicing the air conditioner, be sure to turn OFF the main unit first with the remote controller, and turn off the breaker.
2) Be sure to turn OFF the power supply before removing the front panel, the cabinet, the top panel, and the electronic
control P.C. board.
3) When removing the electrical parts, be careful of the residual voltage of smoothing capacitor.
4) When removing the electronic control P.C. board, hold the edge of the board with care NOT to apply stress on the
components.
5) When connecting or disconnecting the connectors, hold the housing of the connector. DO NOT pull the lead wires.
Lead wire
Housing point
3. Troubleshooting procedure
1) Check if the OPERATION INDICATOR lamp on the outdoor P.C. board is blinking on and off to indicate an abnormality. To make sure, check how many times the abnormality indication is blinking on and off before starting service work.
2) Before servicing check that the connector and terminal are connected properly.
3) If the electronic control P.C. board is supposed to be defective, check the copper foil pattern for disconnection and the
components for bursting and discoloration.
4) When troubleshooting, refer to 11-2. and 11-3.

(Error display 1) "NG" blinks. → The remote controller's transmitting-receiving circuit is defective.
Check for other possible causes, as there is no problem with the remote
controller.
The remote controller must be replaced with a new one.
[Where the remote controller is not defective, but cannot be operated.]
(Error display 2) [E3], [6833] or [6832] blinks. → Transmission is not possible.
There might be noise or interference on the transmission path, or the indoor unit
or other remote controllers are defective. Check the transmission path and other
controllers.
(Error display 3) "ERC" and the number of data errors are displayed.
→ Data error has occurred.
The number of data errors is the difference between the number of bits sent from
the remote controller and the number actually transmitted through the transmission path. If such a problem is occurring, the transmitted data is affected by noise,
etc. Check the transmission path.
When the number of data errors is "02":

To cancel remote controller diagnosis
Press the CHECK button ( in the picture in the previous page) for 5 seconds or more. Remote controller diagnosis will be cancelled,
