OPERATING TIPS
Instructions relating to heating are applicable only to “HEAT & COOL MODEL” (Reverse Cycle).
Mode operation: AUTO
COOLING MODEL
• When the room temperature is 4 °F higher than the set
temperature, the mode will switch between Cooling and
Drying.
• During the Drying mode operation, the FAN setting should
be switched to LOW for a gently cooling effect during which
the fan may temporarily stop rotating.
HEAT & COOL MODEL (Reverse Cycle)
Auto changeover function
• When AUTO CHANGEOVER is selected, the air conditioner
selects the appropriate operation mode (Cooling or Heating) according to your room’s present temperature.
• When AUTO CHANGEOVER is first selected, the fan will
operate at a very low speed for about 1 minute while the
unit determines the current conditions of the room and
selects the proper operation mode.
• When the room temperature is near the thermostat setting, the air conditioner will begin monitor operation. In
the monitor operation mode, the fan will operate at a very
low speed. If the room temperature subsequently changes,
the air conditioner will once again select the appropriate
operation (Heating or Cooling) to adjust the temperature
to the value set in the thermostat. (The monitor operation
range is ±4 °F relative to the thermostat setting.)
Energy save
• The energy conservation mode (ENERGY SAVE) raises the
set temperature slightly in the cooling mode and lowers
the set temperature in the heating mode to economically
control the operation of the unit.
• If you press the ENERGY SAVE button while the unit is in
the timer mode, the unit will go into the conservation mode
when the unit starts with the timer.
• If you turn off the air conditioner while in the conservation
mode, the mode will be shut off.
• The temperature set on the remote controller will not
change if the energy save mode is used.
During cooling operation
When the ENERGY SAVE is
pressed, the thermostat setting
is automatically rised 2 °F every
60 minutes, until the thermostat
is rised a total of 4 °F.

Fan speed: AUTO
Heating: The fan will operate at very low speed when the temperature of the air issued from the indoor unit is low.
Cooling: As the room temperature approaches that of the set
temperature, the fan speed becomes slower.
Fan:
The fan alternately turns on and off; when on, the
fan runs at the low fan speed.
Hot start (for heating)
The indoor unit prevents cold drafts when heating operation
begins.
The indoor unit fan will not operate or it will operate at a very
low speed until the heat exchanger reaches the set temperature.
AUTO restart
• Should the power supply to the air conditioner be interrupted by a power failure, the air conditioner will restart
automatically in the previously selected mode once the
power is restored.
• Use of other electrical appliances (electric shaver, etc.) or
nearby use of a wireless radio transmitter may cause the
air conditioner to malfunction. In this event, temporarily
turn off the circuit breaker turn it on again and then use
the remote controller to resume operation.
Defrosting (for heating)
When the outdoor temperature is low and the humidity high,
frost will collect on the outdoor unit, reducing heater efficiency.
When this happens, the computer will automatically start the
defrost cycle. During the defrost cycle, the indoor fan will shutwill be displayed on the remote controller. It
down and
will take anywhere from 4 to 15 minutes before the air conditioner starts up again.
Group Control
Heating performance
• This air conditioner operates on the heat-pump principle,
absorbing heat from outdoor air and transferring that heat
indoors. As a result, the operating performance is reduced
as outdoor air temperature drops. If you feel that insufficient heating performance is being produced, we recommend you use this air conditioner in conjunction with another kind of heating appliance.
• Heat-pump air conditioners heat your entire room by
recirculating air throughout the room, with the result that
some time may be required after first starting the air conditioner until the room is heated.
One remote controller can control up to 16 air conditioners.
All of the air conditioners will be operated with the same settings.
Dual Remote Controllers (optional)
An additional remove controller can be added up to the maximum of two remote controllers. Either remote controller can
control the air conditioner. However, the timer functions cannot be used at the slave unit.

OPERATING TIPS
Multi-type Air conditioner
This indoor unit can be connected to a multi-type outdoor unit. The multi-type air conditioner allows multiple indoor units to
be operated in multiple locations. The indoor units may be operated simultaneously, in accordance with their respective
output.
Simultaneous Use of Multiple Units
Instructions relating to inverter (❖) are applicable only to “INVERTER MODEL”.
● When using a multi-type air conditioner, the multiple
indoor units can be operated simultaneously, but when
two or more indoor units of the same group are operated simultaneously, the heating and cooling efficiency
will be less than when a single indoor unit is used alone.
Accordingly, when you wish to use more than one indoor unit for cooling at the same time, the use should
be concentrated at night and other times when less output is required. In the same way, when multiple units
are used simultaneously for heating, it is recommended
that they be used in conjunction with other auxiliary
space heaters, as required.
● Seasonal and outdoor temperature conditions, the structure of the rooms and the number of persons present
may also result in differences of operating efficiency.
We recommend that you try various operating patterns
in order to confirm the level of heating and cooling output provided by your units, and use the units in the way
that best matches your family's lifestyle.
❖
● Operation can be done in the following different operating modes.
Cooling mode and dry mode
Cooling mode and fan mode
Dry mode and fan mode
❖
● The operating mode (heating mode or cooling (dry)
mode) of the outdoor unit will be determined by the operating mode of the indoor unit that was operated first.
If the indoor unit was started in fan mode, the operating
mode of the outdoor unit will not be determined.
For example, if indoor unit (A) was started in fan mode
and then indoor unit (B) was then operated in heating
mode, indoor unit (A) would temporarily start operation in fan mode but when indoor unit (B) started operwill be shown on the reating in heating mode,
mote controller display and it would go into standby
mode. Indoor unit (B) would continue to operate in heating mode.
● If you discover that one or more units delivers a low
level of cooling or heating during simultaneous operation, we recommend that you stop simultaneous operation of the multiple units.
❖
● Operation cannot be done in the following different operating modes.
If the indoor unit is instructed to do an operating mode
will be shown on the rethat it cannot perform,
mote controller display and the unit will go into the
standby mode.
Heating mode and cooling mode (or dry mode)
Heating mode and fan mode
Notice
Instructions relating to heating (*) are applicable only to “HEAT & COOL MODEL” (Reverse Cycle).
*● During use of the heating mode, the outdoor unit will
occasionally commence the defrost operation for brief
periods. During the defrosting operation, if the user sets
the indoor unit for heating again, the defrosting mode
will continue, and the heating operation will begin after
completion of defrosting, with the result that some time
may be required before warm air is emitted.
*● During use of the heating mode, the top of the indoor
unit may become warm, but this is due to the fact that
coolant is circulated through the indoor unit even when
it is stopped; it is not a malfunction.

Doesn’t operate immediately:
● If the unit is stopped and then immediately started again, the compressor will not operate for about 3 minutes, in order to prevent
fuse blowouts.
● Whenever the electrical breaker is turned off then on again, the
protection circuit will operate for about 3 minutes, preventing unit
operation during that period.
—
● During operation and immediately after stopping the unit, the
sound of water flowing in the air conditioner’s piping may be
heard. Also, noise may be particularly noticeable for about 2 to 3
minutes after starting operation (sound of coolant flowing).
● During operation, a slight squeaking sound may be heard. This is
the result of minute expansion and contraction of the panel due
to temperature changes.
—
● During Heating operation, a sizzling sound may be heard occasionally. This sound is produced by the Automatic Defrosting operation.

● Some smell may be emitted from the indoor unit. This smell is
the result of room smells (furniture, tobacco, etc.) which have
been taken into the air conditioner.
—
● During Cooling, a thin mist may be seen emitted from the indoor unit.
This results from the sudden Cooling of room air by the air emitted
from the air conditioner, resulting in condensation and misting.
—
● During Heating operation, the outdoor unit’s fan may stop, and
steam may be seen rising from the unit. This is due to the Automatic Defrosting operation.
9
● When Heating operation is started, fan speed is temporarily very
low, to allow internal parts to warm up.
● During Heating operation, if the room temperature rises above
the thermostat setting, the outdoor unit will stop, and the indoor
unit will operate at very low fan speed. If you wish to warm the
room further, set the thermostat to a higher setting.
—
