Operating Recommendations
When you use your air conditioner, it is recommended that you read the following:
Topic
Recommendation
Heating capacity
The heat pump inside the air conditioner absorbs heat from outside air and brings itindoors.
If the temperature of the outside air drops, the air conditioner heats less. If the room is not warm
enough, use an additional heating appliance.
Warm air circulation
The air conditioner circulates warm air to heat your room. It will take some time to warm
the air in your room entirely after the air conditioner turns on.
Therefore, turn the air conditioner on in advance.
Frost
When you select the Heat mode, frost may form in the outdoor unit due to low temperature
and high humidity.
If this happens:
 The heating operation is stopped.
 The air conditioner defrosts automatically for about 7 minutes. After about 7 minutes,
the air conditioner starts operating again normally.
High indoor and
outdoor temperatures
If both the indoor and outdoor temperatures are high when you select the Heat mode,
the fan and the compressor of the outdoor unit may stop periodically.
This is normal; wait until the air conditioner turns on again.
Power failure
If a power failure occurs when the air conditioner is operating, the air conditioner will turn off.
When the power returns, the air conditioner will start up again automatically.
Protection mechanism
When the air conditioner is started immediately after being plugged in or stopped,
the normal operation starts up after 3 minutes for the reason of protection.
Cooling operation
The indoor unit may not get the selected fan speed such as Medium and Low under cooling
operation at very low outdoor temperatures for the protection of the indoor unit from ice
or frost.
During Low fan speed operation, cooling performance will be reduced.
If the room does not be cooled down when using Low fan speed operation, please adjust the
indoor unit’s fan speed.
Silence Mode
When you operate Silence Mode in cooling and heating, fan speed will decrease to make
noise quieter.
As a result, the performance of the unit may be reduced.
