4-5 AUTO RESTART FUNCTION
•
•
FOR LEFT OR LEFT-REAR PIPING
These models are equipped with an auto restart function. If you do not want to use
this function, please consult the service representative because the setting of the unit
needs to be changed.
When the indoor unit is controlled with the remote controller, the operation mode, the
set temperature, and the fan speed are memorized by the indoor electronic control
P.C. board. The auto restart function sets to work the moment the power has restored
after power failure, then, the unit will restart automatically. If the unit is operated in
“AUTO” mode before power failure, the operation mode (COOL, DRY or HEAT) is not
stored in the memory. When the main power is turned on, the unit decides the
operation mode by the initial room temperature at restart and starts operation again.
•
Pipe arrangement
Put the refrigerant piping and the drain hose together, then apply felt tape 7 to them.
Be careful drain hose
is not heaved.
Cut off in case of left piping.
Operation
1 If the main power has been cut, the operation settings remain.
2 When three minutes have passed after power was restored, the unit will restart
automatically according to the memory.
Notes:
• The operation settings are memorized when 10 seconds have passed after the
remote controller was operated.
• If the main power is turned off or a power failure occurs while AUTO START/STOP
timer is active, the timer setting is cancelled. As these models are equipped with an
auto restart function, the air conditioner starts operating with timer cancelled at the
same time that power is restored.
• If the unit has been off with the remote controller before power failure, the auto
restart function does not work as the power button of the remote controller is off.
• To prevent breaker off due to the rush of starting current, systematize other home
appliances not to turn on at the same time.
Use a bandage stopper at
the end of felt tape 7.
Felt tape 7

INSTALLATION INFORMATION FOR THE AIR CONDITIONER
WITH R410A REFRIGERANT
•
This room air conditioner adopts an HFC refrigerant (R410A) which will never destroy
the ozone layer.
Pay particular attention to the following points, though the basic installation
procedure is same as that for R22 air conditioners.
1 As R410A has a working pressure approx. 1.6 times as high as that of R22, some
special tools and piping parts / materials are required. (Refer to the table below.)
2 Take sufficient care not to allow water and other contaminations to enter the
R410A refrigerant during storage and installation, since it is more susceptible to
contaminations than R22.
3 For refrigerant piping, use clean, pressure-proof parts / materials specifically
designed for R410A.
4 Composition change may occur in R410A since it is a mixed refrigerant. When
charging, charge liquid refrigerant to prevent composition change.
3 Putting nut on
• Remove flare nuts attached to indoor and outdoor
units, then put them on pipe having completed
burr removal.
(not possible to put them on after flaring work)
• Flare nut for R410A pipe differs from R22 pipe.

6-4 PURGING PROCEDURES·LEAK TEST
PROCEDURE
•
Press the EMERGENCY OPERATION switch.
1 Press it once, and after test run for 30 minutes the EMERGENCY COOL MODE starts.
PURGING PROCEDURES
If the left side lamp of the operation indicator blinks every 0.5 seconds, inspect the
indoor/outdoor unit connecting wire A for mis-wiring.
Connect the refrigerant pipes (both liquid pipe and the gas pipe) between the indoor
and the outdoor unit.
Remove the service port cap of the stop valve on the side of the outdoor unit gas
pipe. (The stop valve will not work in it initial state fresh out of the factory (totally
closed with cap on).)
2 Press it once more, and the EMERGENCY HEAT MODE starts.
3 Press it once more, and the operation stops.

Remove the gauge manifold valve quickly from the service port of the stop valve.
After refrigerant pipes are connected and evacuated, fully open all stop valves on
both sides of gas pipe and liquid pipe.
Operating without fully opening lowers the performance and this causes trouble.

No gas charge is needed.
Pipe length exceeding 7 m
Charge the prescribed amount
of gas. (refer to 3)
Tighten the cap to the service port to obtain the initial status.
Retighten the cap.

6-5 TEST RUN
•
Before performing the test run, recheck any wrong wiring.
Wrong wiring prevents normal operation or results in blown fuse disabling operation.
The test run can be started by pressing EMERGENCY OPERATION switch. When the
EMERGENCY OPERATION switch is once pressed, the unit will start the test run
(continuous operation) for 30 minutes.
A thermostat does not work during this time. After 30 minutes the unit will start the
EMERGENCY OPERATION at a fixed temperature setting of 24°C in COOL MODE.
Perform test run in the following procedure.
Note:
Insert the power supply plug into the power outlet and/or turn on the breaker.
Check that all LED lamps are not lit.
If they are blinking, the horizontal vane is not installed correctly.
In this case, disconnect the power supply plug and/or turn off the breaker, and then
reinstall the horizontal vane. (See the OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS.)

pipe side of the outdoor unit.
2 Fully close the stop valve on the liquid pipe side of the outdoor unit.
3 Close the stop valve on the gas pipe side of the outdoor unit almost completely
so that it can be easily closed fully when the pressure gauge shows –0.101 MPa
[Gauge] (0 kgf/cm2).
4 Start the EMERGENCY COOLING OPERATION.
To start the EMERGENCY OPERATION in COOL MODE, disconnect the power
supply plug and/or turn off the breaker. After 15 seconds, connect the power
supply plug and/or turn on the breaker, and then press the EMERGENCY
OPERATION switch once. (The EMERGENCY COOLING OPERATION can be
performed continuously for up to 30 minutes.)
5 Fully close the stop valve on the gas pipe side of the outdoor unit when the
pressure gauge shows 0.05 to 0 MPa [Gauge] (approx. 0.5 to 0 kgf/cm2).
6 Stop the EMERGENCY COOLING OPERATION.
Press the EMERGENCY OPERATION switch twice to stop the operation.
Do not discharge the refrigerant into the atmosphere.
Take care not to discharge refrigerant into the atmosphere during installation,
reinstallation, or repairs to the refrigerant circuit.
When charging the refrigerant system with additional refrigerant, be sure
to use liquid refrigerant.
Adding gas refrigerant may change the composition of the refrigerant in the
system and affect normal operation of the air conditioner. Also, charge the
system slowly, otherwise the compressor will be locked.
To maintain the high pressure of the gas cylinder, warm the gas cylinder with warm
water (under 40°C) during cold season. But never use naked fire or steam.
