Cost Efficient System
Your new air conditioner not only provides maximum
cooling power in the summer, but can also be an efficient
heating method in the winter with the advanced “Heat
pump” system. This technology is up to 300% more
efficient than electrical heating, so you can further reduce
its running cost. Now, meet year-round needs with one air
conditioner.
Flexible installation
Duct type air conditioner is designed to be slimmer and
offers different solutions for any shape room allowing for
specific air flow requirements. Also, the air intake can be
set up on either the bottom or rear of the unit, so there is
more flexibility in installation.
This product has been determined to be in compliance with the Low Voltage Directive (2006/95/EC), the Electromagnetic
Compatibility Directive (2004/108/EC) and the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC) of the European Union

Checking before use
Operation ranges
The table below indicates the temperature and humidity ranges the air conditioner can
be operated within.
Refer to the table for efficient use.
MODE
OUTDOOR TEMPERATURE
INDOOR TEMPERATURE
COOLING
-15°C/5°F to 50°C/122°F
18°C/64°F to 32°C/90°F
HEATING
-20°C/-4°F to 24°C/75°F
27°C/81°F to less
DRYING
-15°C/5°F to 50°C/122°F
18°C/64°F to 32°C/90°F
INDOOR HUMIDITY
80% or less
• T he standardized temperature for heating is 7˚C/45˚F. If the outdoor temperature drops to 0˚C/32˚F or below, the
heating capacity can be reduced depending on the temperature condition.
If the cooling operation is used at over 32˚C/90˚F (indoor temperature), it does not cool at its full capacity.
NOTE
CAUTION
• The use of the air conditioner at a relative humidity above the expected one (80%) may
cause the formation of condensate and the leakage of water drops on the floor.
Maintaining your air conditioner
Internal protections via the unit control system
 This internal protection operates if an internal fault occurs in the air conditioner.
Type
NOTE

Description
Against cold air
The internal fan will be off to against cold air when the heat pump is heating.
De-ice cycle
(Defrost cycle)
The internal fan will be off to against cold air when the heat pump is heating.
Anti-protection of
internal battery
The compressor will be off to protect internal battery when the air conditioner operates
in Cool mode.
Protect compressor
The air conditioner does not start operating immediately to protect the compressor of
the outdoor unit after it has been started.
• If the heat pump is operating in Heat mode, De-ice cycle is actuated to remove frost from an outdoor unit that may
have deposited at low temperatures.
The internal fan is switched off automatically and restarted only after the de-ice cycle is completed.
Tips on using air conditioner
Here are some tips that you would follow when using your air conditioner.
RECOMMENDATION
Cooling
•If current outside temperatures are much higher than the selected
indoor temperature, it may take time to bring the inner temperature
to the desired coolness.
•Avoid drastically turning down the temperature. Energy is wasted and
the room does not cool faster.
Heating
•Since the air conditioner heats the room by taking heat energy
from outdoor air, the heating capacity may decrease when outdoor
temperatures are extremely low. If you feel the air conditioner
insufficiently heats, using an additional heating appliance in
combination with the air conditioner is recommended.
Frost & De-ice
•When the air conditioner runs in Heat mode, due to temperature
difference between the unit and the outside air, frost will form.
If this happens:
-The air conditioner stops heating.
-The air conditioner will operate automatically in De-ice mode for 10 minutes.
-The steam produced on the outdoor unit in De-ice mode is safe.
No intervention is required; after about 10 minutes, the air conditioner
operates again normally.
❈ The unit will not operate when it starts to de-ice.
Fan
•Fan may not operate for about 3~5 minutes at the beginning to
prevent any cold blasts while the air conditioner is warming up.
High indoor/
outdoor
temperatures
•If both indoor and outdoor temperatures are high and the air
conditioner is running in Heat mode, the outdoor unit’s fan and
compressor may stop at times. This is normal; wait until the air
conditioner turns on again.
Power failure
•If a power failure occurs during the operation of the air conditioner,
the operating immediately stops and unit will be off. When power
returns, the air conditioner will run automatically.
Protection
mechanism
•If the air conditioner has just been turned on after operation stops or
being plugged in, cool/warm air does not come out for 3 minutes to
protect the compressor of the outdoor unit.

ENGLISH
 Dry the air conditioner thoroughly by operating in Fan mode for 3 to 4 hours and
disconnect the power plug.
There may be internal damage if moisture is left in components.
 Before using the air conditioner again, dry the inner components of the air conditioner
again by running in Fan mode for 3 to 4 hours. This helps remove odors which may have
generated from dampness.
Appendix
Troubleshooting
Refer to the following chart if the air conditioner operates abnormally. This may
save time and unnecessary expenses.
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
The air conditioner
does not operate
immediately after it
has been restarted.
• B ecause of the protective mechanism, the appliance does not start
operating immediately to keep the unit from overloading.
The air conditioner will start in 3 minutes.
The air conditioner
does not work at all.
• C heck that the power plug is properly connected. Insert the power
plug into the wall socket correctly.
• Check if the circuit breaker is switched off.

to change the set temperature. Press the Temperature button to
decrease or increase the temperature.
• Check if the air filter is blocked by dirt. Clean the air filter every two
weeks.
• Check if the air conditioner has just been turned on. If so, wait 3
minutes. Cool air does not come out to protect the compressor of
the outdoor unit.
• Check if the air conditioner is operating in defrost mode. When the
ice formed in winter or the outdoor temperature is too low, the
air conditioner operates in defrost mode automatically. In defrost
mode, indoor fan stops and warm air does not come out.
• Check if the air conditioner is installed in a place with a direct
exposure to sunlight. Hang curtains on windows to boost cooling
efficiency.

of time with the air flow blades pointed downwards. Condensation
may generate due to the difference in temperature.
Remote control is
not working.
•
•
•
•
The air conditioner
does not turn on or
off with the wired
remote control.
• Check if you set the wired remote control for group control.
