PRECAUTIONS FOR USE
Warning:
• Make sure to insert the power plug securely.
Insecure insertion of the plug may cause
electrocution or fire.
• Never unplug the machine while running.
• Do not damage the cord or use an unapproved
cord.
• Do not plug other electric appliances into the
same socket or use extension cords.
• Never operate the air conditioner with wet
hands.
• Do not pull the plug out by the cord. This could
cause the cord to overheat and catch fire.
• Turn off the air conditioner and pull out the plug
when cleaning the air conditioner. This will
prevent electrocution or injury.
• The rated voltage of this air conditioner is 220240V with a tolerance of ±22V for fluctuation.
The compressor will vibrate if the voltage is too
low, causing damage to the cooling system.
• If you notice anything unusual (e.g. burnt smell),
switch off the power supply immediately and
contact the Whirlpool Authorized Service
Center nearest you.
If the abnormal condition continues, the air
conditioner could be damaged and could also
cause electrocution or fire.
• Grounding: The unit must be reliably grounded.
The grounding cable must be connected to the
special grounding system in the building.
If the building does not have a grounding
system, ask an expert electrician to install one.
Never connect the grounding cable to a gas
pipe, water pipe, sewage pipe or other unless
the professional considers it reliable.
• Make sure to unplug air conditioner when not in
use for an extended period. Accumulation of
dust could cause heating or fire.
• Set the room temperature appropriately. The
difference between indoor and outdoor
temperature should be 5°C.
Appropriate adjustment of the temperature
setting serves to reduce consumption.
• When the air conditioner is running, do not
leave doors and windows open in the room.
This will prevent loss of effectiveness of the air
conditioner.
• Never block the air inlet or outlet of indoor and
outdoor unit, as this will decrease the effect of
the air conditioner or cause it to shut down or
even catch fire.

• Spray cans, chemicals and gas tanks must be
placed at least 1m away from the indoor and
outdoor unit; they could cause fire or explosion
• Make sure to mount the outdoor unit on a
sturdy base. If the base is damaged and
unsteady, the unit could fall and cause injury.
• Do not stand or place anything on the outdoor
unit. Persons or objects falling from the unit
could cause injuries.
• Do not repair the air conditioner yourself.
Incorrect repairs could cause electrocution or
fire. Contact the Whirlpool Authorized Service
Center nearest you for repairs.
• Adjust the air flow and direction properly. When
the air conditioner is running, you can adjust the
air flow direction by setting the upper/lower
guide louver position using the remote control
or handle.
• Never reach with your finger or a stick into the
indoor or outdoor unit.
• Never blow the air directly at pets or plants, as
this may harm them.
• Never spray water onto the unit or wash the air
conditioner with water.
• Never let the air conditioner blow on a heat
source. This could put the flame out and cause
carbon monoxide poisoning.
• To avoid any harm to your health, do not blow
the cold air on your body too long or lower the
room temperature too much.
• This air conditioner cannot be used for drying
clothes or chilling foods.
Warning:
• Do not cut or damage the power cords and
control lines. Any damaged power cords and
signal control lines of the air conditioner must
be replaced by qualified technicians with special
cords.
• Persistent abnormality indicates that the air
conditioner may be damaged with the
consequent risk of electric shock or fire. This
may cause an electric shock.
• To prevent fire always use a special power
supply circuit.
• Disconnect the air conditioner from the power
supply if it is to be left unused for a long period.
• For 18-23K, 230V, with a tolerable fluctuation of
±23V. The compressor is subject to strong
vibrations under very low voltages which can
damage the refrigerating system. Electrical
elements are easily damaged by high voltage.
4
• Ensure that the power supply is suitably
protected by a special circuit with air breaker.
The air conditioner automatically starts or stops
according to requirements. Do not switch the
air conditioner on and off too often as this can
damage the appliance. This may cause an
electric shock or injury.
• Do not cut or damage the external cable. Any
damaged external cable must be replaced by
qualified electricians.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The Principle and Special Functions of Cooling Mode
Principle:
The air conditioner absorbs heat from indoor air and discharges it outdoors, thus lowering the indoor
room temperature. Cooling capacity decreases with a rise in outdoor temperatures.
Anti-freeze Function:
Frost may appear on the surface of the indoor heat exchanger if the air conditioner is running under lowtemperature cooling mode.
When the temperature of the indoor heat exchanger drops to 0° or below the outdoor unit
microcomputer will bring the compressor to a standstill to protect the complete unit.
The Principle and Special Functions of the Heating Mode
Principle:
• The air conditioner absorbs heat from outdoor air to transmit indoors thus increasing the room
temperature. Heating capacity decreases with a reduction in outdoor temperatures.
• This type of hot air circulating system can increase indoor temperatures very quickly.
• Use this air conditioner with other heating equipment when outdoor temperatures are extremely low.
Defrost:
• The outdoor unit heat exchanger may frost when the outdoor temperature is low, humidity is high and
the air conditioner has been running for some time, resulting in inefficient heating. In this case, the
appliance automatically defrosts and heating is suspended for 6/8-10 minutes.
• Both the indoor fan and outdoor fan are brought to a standstill during auto defrost.
• An indicator light on the indoor unit flashes and mist might flow from the indoor unit during defrost.
This is a result of rapid defrosting and is quite normal.
• Heating mode is automatically resumed on completion of defrost process.
Anti-cold Air Function:
Under heating mode, if the indoor heat exchanger fails to reach a specific temperature under following
statuses, the indoor fan will not be started, so as to avoid blowing of cold air (within 3 minutes): 1. Start of
heating mode; 2. End of auto defrost.
Possible causes of failure of the air conditioner to function.
A safety device may be activated in the temperature range as specified below, so that the unit might be
stopped.

Vacuum-pumping and Leakage Inspection
1. Remove the nut cover at the shutoff valve.
2. Align with the center of the fitting pipe and
manually tighten the conical nut sufficiently.
3. Use a wrench to tighten the conical nut.
4. Remove the liquid valve cap, the gas valve cap
and the nut of refrigerant inlet.
5. Use an Allen wrench to twist off the liquid valve
body and at the same time use screwdriver to
open the valve core of the liquid valve. Now gas
will flow out.
6. After the gas continues flowing for about 15
second and refrigerant gas begins to flow out,
close the valve core and tighten the nut of
refrigerant inlet.
7. Completely open the valve body of the liquid
valve and the gas valve.
8. Turn and tighten the valve cap, then use soapy
water or a leak detector to check for gas
leakage at the outdoor and indoor units and
pipeline connections.

ELECTRIC HEATING BELT
ELECTRIC HEATING BELT FOR INVERTER MODEL AMC 996 - 998 ONLY
In case of malfunction of the outdoor temperature sensor, both electric belts stop working. Under normal
conditions, operations is as follows:
1. When the outdoor temperature is -5° or less and the compressor does not start, the electric heating
belt on the compressor start; if the compressor is running or does not start but the outdoor
temperature is > -2°C, the electric heating belt does not start. If the compressor does not start and
the outdoor temperature is between -5°C and -2°C the electric heating belt on the compressor
maintains its current status.
2. When the outdoor temperature is less or equal to 3°C the electric condenser heating belt will work. If
the outdoor temperature is greater than 6°C it will not work. Between 3° and 6°C it maintains its
current status.
