7-1. TIMER SHORT MODE
For service, set time can be shortened by short circuit of JPG and JPS the indoor electronic control P.C. board.
The time will be shortened as follows. (Refer to 9-7.)
Set time: 1-minute → 1-second
Set time: 3-minute → 3-second (It takes 3 minutes for the compressor to start operation. However, the starting time is
shortened by short circuit of JPG and JPS.)
7-2. P.C. BOARD MODIFICATION FOR INDIVIDUAL OPERATION
A maximum of 4 indoor units with wireless remote controllers can be used in a room.
In this case, to operate each indoor unit individually by each remote controller, P.C. boards of remote controller must be
modified according to the number of the indoor unit.
How to modify the remote controller P.C. board
Remove batteries before modification.
The board has a print as shown below:
NOTE: For modification, take out the batteries and
press the OPERATE/STOP (ON/OFF) button
twice or 3 times at first.
After finish modification, put back the batteries
then press the RESET button.
J1
J2
The P.C. board has the print “J1” and “J2”. Solder “J1” and “J2” according to the number of indoor unit as shown in Table 1.
After modification, press the RESET button.

How to set the remote controller exclusively for particular indoor unit
After you turn the breaker ON, the first remote controller that sends the signal to the indoor unit will be regarded as the remote
controller for the indoor unit.
The indoor unit will only accept the signal from the remote controller that has been assigned to the indoor unit once they are
set.
The setting will be cancelled if the breaker has turned OFF, or the power supply has shut down.
Please conduct the above setting once again after the power has restored.
8
7-3. AUTO RESTART FUNCTION
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. “AUTO RESTART FUNCTION” automatically starts operation
in the same mode just before the shut-off of the main power.
Operation
If the main power has been cut, the operation settings remain.
After the power is restored, the unit restarts automatically according to the memory.
(However, it takes at least 3 minutes for the compressor to start running.)
How to release “AUTO RESTART FUNCTION”
CN10A
CN151
Indoor electronic
control P.C. board
CN112 CN111
Turn OFF the main power of the unit.
Solder the Jumper wire JR07 on the indoor electronic control P.C. board. (Refer to 9-7.)
JR07
NOTE:
• The operation settings are memorized when 10 seconds have passed after the indoor unit was operated with the
remote controller.
• If main power is turned OFF or a power failure occurs while AUTO START/STOP timer is active, the timer setting is
cancelled.
• 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 appliance not to turn ON at the
same time.
• When some air conditioners are connected to the same supply system, if they are operated before power failure, the
starting current of all the compressors may flow simultaneously at restart.
Therefore, the special counter-measures are required to prevent the main voltage-drop or the rush of the starting
current by adding to the system that allows the units to start one by one.

(5) TEMPERATURE buttons
In “I FEEL CONTROL” (
) mode, set temperature is decided by the microprocessor based on the room temperature.
In addition, set temperature can be controlled by TOO WARM or TOO COOL buttons when you feel too cool or too
warm.
Each time the TOO WARM or TOO COOL button is pressed, the indoor unit receives the signal and emits a beep tone.
• Fuzzy control
When the TOO COOL or TOO WARM button is pressed, the microprocessor changes the set temperature, considering the room temperature, the frequency of pressing TOO COOL or TOO WARM button and the user's preference to
heat or cool. So this is called “Fuzzy control”, and works only in “I FEEL CONTROL” mode.
In DRY mode of “I FEEL CONTROL”, the set temperature does not change.

Once desired temperature is set, unit operation is switched automatically between COOL and HEAT operation.
Mode selection
(1) Initial mode
When unit starts the operation with AUTO operation from OFF:
• If the room temperature is higher than the set temperature, operation starts in COOL mode.
• If the room temperature is equal to or lower than the set temperature, operation starts in HEAT mode.
(2) Mode change
COOL mode changes to HEAT mode when about 15 minutes have passed with the room temperature 2°F (1°C) below
the set temperature.
HEAT mode changes to COOL mode when about 15 minutes have passed with the room temperature 2°F (1°C) above
the set temperature.
NOTE1
If two or more indoor units are operating in multi system, there might be a case that the indoor unit, which is operating in
(AUTO), cannot change over to the other operating mode (COOL ↔ HEAT(MSZ)) and becomes a state of standby.
Refer to NOTE2 "FOR MULTI SYSTEM AIR CONDITIONER".
NOTE2
FOR MULTI SYSTEM AIR CONDITIONER
OUTDOOR UNIT: MXZ series
Multi system air conditioner can connect two or more indoor units with one outdoor unit.
• When you try to operate two or more indoor units with one outdoor unit simultaneously, one for the cooling and
the others for heating, the operation mode of the indoor unit that operates first is selected. Other indoor units
cannot operate, and operation indicator lamp flashes as shown in the figure below. In this case, please set all the
indoor units to the same operation mode.
<Operation indicator lamp>
