Maintaining the air conditioner
If the air conditioner will not be used for an extended period of time, dry the air conditioner to maintain it in best condition.
1. Dry the air conditioner thoroughly by operating in Fan mode for 3 to 4 hours and disconnect the
power plug. There may be internal damage if moisture is left in components.
2. Before using the air conditioner again, dry the inner components of the air conditioner again by running in Fan
mode for 3 to 4 hours. This helps remove odors which may have generated from dampness.

take the obstacle away.
• If you want to operate the air conditioner in the sunlight, cover the outdoor unit using
curtains or etc.

or the outdoor temperature is too low, the air conditioner operates in De-ice mode
automatically. In De-ice mode, indoor fan stops and cool air does not come out.
• If the doors or windows are open, it may cause bad cooling (heating) performance.
Close the doors and windows.
• Check if the air conditioner has just been turned on after stopping cooling(heating)
operation. In this case, just a fan will run to protect the outdoor unit compressor.
• Check if the pipe length is too long. When the pipe length exceeds maximum allowable
pipe length, cooling (heating) performance may decrease.
