Operating tips
The following events may occur during normal operation.
Noises coming from the air conditioner
1
•
You may hear a low hissing sound when the compressor
is running or has just stopped running. This is the sound
of the refrigerant flowing or coming to a stop.
•
You also may hear a low “squeak” sound when the
compressor is running or just stopped running. This
is caused by heat expansion and cold contraction of
the plastic parts in the unit when the temperature is
changing.
•
A noise may be heard due to louvre restoring to its
original position when power is first turned on.
Protection of the air conditioner
Compressor protection
•
The compressor will not restart for 3 minutes after it stops.
Anti-freezing
•
If the unit is operating in COOL mode in a low
ambient temperature, frost may be formed on the
heat exchanger. When the indoor heat exchanger
temperature decreases below 0ºC, the compressor will
stop operation to protect the unit.
Dust is blown out from the indoor unit
Defrosting
•Frost may form on the outdoor unit in heating mode
when the outdoor temperature is low but humidity is
high, resulting in low heating efficiency.
When this occurs, the air conditioner will stop heating
and start defrosting automatically. The defrosting time
may vary from 3 to 12 minutes.
During defrosting, the fan motors of the indoor unit
and outdoor unit will stop. The indoor indicator flashes
“H1” and the outdoor unit may emit a vapour. This is not
a malfunction. After defrosting is finished, the heating
operation will resume automatically.
Anti-cold air
•
This is a normal condition when the air conditioner has
not been used for a long time or during first use of
the unit.
A peculiar smell comes out from the indoor unit
•
This is caused by the indoor unit giving off smells
permeated from building material, furniture or smoke.
The air conditioner turns to FAN only mode from COOL or
HEAT mode
•
When the indoor temperature reaches the setting value,
the compressor will stop automatically, and the air
conditioner turns to FAN mode.
The compressor will start again when the indoor
temperature rises in COOL mode or falls in HEAT mode
to the set point.
•
In HEAT mode, the indoor fan will not operate for up to
5 minutes if the indoor heat exchanger does not reach a
minimum temperature for the following reasons:
Condensation
1
Heating operation has just started.
•
2
Auto defrosting is just finished.
3
Heating at a low temperature.
This is in order to prevent cold air being blown into the
room.
Water droplets are likely to form at the air outlet if
cooling or drying for a long time when the relative
humidity is more than 80% (with doors and windows
open).
Set the vertical louvre to its maximum angle (to the floor)
and High fan speed. Close the doors and windows.
Gentle breeze
•
The indoor unit may blow gentle breeze and the louvre
rotates to a certain position in the following situation:
1
In HEAT mode, the unit is turned on, the compressor
does not reach the starting condition.
2
In HEAT mode, the temperature reaches the set
value and the compressor stops running for
about 1 minute.
A white mist is coming out from the indoor unit
•
A white mist may generate due to a large temperature
differences between air inlet and air outlet in COOL
mode in an indoor environment that has a high relative
humidity.
•
A white mist may generate due to moisture generated
from defrosting process when the air conditioner restarts
in HEAT mode operation after defrosting.

Kelvinator Air Conditioning Troubleshooting 19
Troubleshooting
Please check the following prior to contacting your Electrolux Service Centre.
Problem
Cause
The unit does not operate
The unit does not operate if it is turned on immediately after it is turned off. This is to protect the
unit compressor. Please wait for about 3 minutes before turning the unit on again.
Odours are emitted
Some odours may be emitted from the indoor unit. This is the result of room smells (such as
furniture, tobacco, etc) which have been taken into the unit.
Consult your authorised service centre for cleaning if the odours persist.
“Water flowing” noise
The swishing noise like water flowing is the refrigerant flowing inside the unit.
Mist is emitted in COOL mode
During cooling operation, a thin mist may be seen emitted from the indoor unit due to high room
temperature and humidity. After a period of time, the mist will disappear as the room temperature
and humidity decrease.
Cracking noise
This is the sound of friction caused by expansion and/or contraction of panel or other parts due to
the change of temperature.
The unit cannot be started up
• Is the power cut off?
• Is the power plug loose?
• Is the circuit protection device tripped off?
• Is voltage higher or lower? (tested by professionals)
• Is the TIMER correctly used?
• Are the batteries exhausted?
Cooling/Heating effect is poor
• Is the temperature setting appropriate?
• Is the air inlet/outlet blocked?
• Is the filter dirty?
• Is the door or window open?
• Is low fan speed set?
• Are there heat sources in the room?
Water leakage of indoor unit
• The humidity is high.
• Condensing water overflows.
• Drain hose is loose or obstructed.
Water leakage of outdoor unit
• During cooling operation, water condenses around the pipes and connection joints.
• During defrosting operation, thawed water flows out.
• During heating operation, water on the heat exchanger drips out.
Noise from indoor unit
• The noise emitted when the fan or compressor relay is switched on or off.
• When the defrosting operation is started or stopped, there is a sound of refrigerant flowing
in the reverse direction.
Indoor unit cannot blow air
• In HEAT mode, when the temperature of indoor heat exchanger is very low, airflow is stopped in
order to prevent cold air (within 2 minutes).
• In HEAT mode, when the outdoor temperature is low or humidity is high, frost will be formed on
the outdoor and the indoor heat exchanger. The unit will defrost automatically and indoor unit
will stop blowing air for 2-3 minutes.
• During defrosting operation, water or vapour may be emitted.
• In DEHUMIDIFY mode, the indoor fan will stop blowing air for 3 to 12 minutes in order to avoid
condensing water being vapourised again.
Moisture on the air outlet
If the unit operates at high humidity for a long time, moisture may be generated on the air outlet
grill and then drip off.
H1 code: defrosting
This is normal. The unit is in defrosting operation and heating will recommence soon.
