Louvre angle memory function

Within the scope of safety angle, the horizontal louver angle is memorised and will return to the position last selected by user. If it exceeds, it will memorize the boundary of safety angle. This will not happen when Turbo or manual control buttons are pressed or after a power interruption. So we strongly suggest that the open angle of the horizontal louver should not be set too small, in case the condensed water forms and drips from the horizontal louver.

SELF CLEAN function

• Airborne bacteria use the moisture on the indoor heat exchanger to grow. Regular drying of the exchanger prevents this growth. By simply pressing the SELF CLEAN button, the system will automatically manage the process. This cleaning action may be done as frequently as desired.

• For cooling models, only the indoor fan is active in low speed for 30 minutes and the unit turns off automatically.

• For cooling & heating models, the unit will operate as in the following sequence : FAN mode at Low fan speed--Heating operation with LOW fan speed ---FAN operation--Stop

Operation---Turn off.

NOTE:

Activating self clean function does not replace the need to clean the filters. The filters must be cleaned at least every

3 months, or as required to maintain good cleanliness and performance of this air conditioner.

Before activation the air conditioner, it is recommended to run the air conditioner under cooling operation for about

30 minutes.

Pressing the SELF CLEAN or ON/OFF button again during the cleaning cycle will cancel the operation and turn the unit off.

Auto-restart function

In event of power interruption such as a blackout, the air conditioner stops once. But it restarts automatically and performs previous operation when the power supply is resumed.

Mute operation

Press the LED button on the remote controller can turn off the indoor screen display, and also turn off the Air conditioner buzzer, which create a comfortable and quiet environment.

Range

Adjusting vertical air flow (Up/Down)

The vertical airflow direction is controlled by using the remote control. This can be set to a fixed direction or to automatically swing up and down for even air distribution. Refer to Remote

Control section page 9 for operation details .

Adjusting horizontal air flow (Left/Right)

• The airflow can be directed horizontally (left to right) by manually adjusting the deflector rod.

Do not put your fingers into the panel of the blower and suction side. The high-speed fan inside may cause injury.

• Do not operate the air conditioner for long periods with the air flow direction set downward in cooling or dehumidifying mode. Otherwise, condensation may occur on the surface of the horizontal louver causing moisture to drop on to the floor or on furnishings.

• After a quick restart, the horizontal louver may remain static for approximately 10 seconds.

• Open angle of the horizontal louver should not be set too small, as COOLING or HEATING performance may be reduced due to too restricted air flow area.

• Do not move the vertical (up/down) louver manually, otherwise the vertical louver will be out of sync. But if this happens, please cease operating, switch off power for a few seconds, then restart the air conditioner.

Optimal operation

To achieve optimal performance, please note the following:

• Adjust the air flow direction correctly so that it is not towards people.

• Adjust the temperature to achieve moderate comfort levels.

Excessively low or high temperature waste energy.

• Improve performance by keeping windows and doors closed.

• Limit energy usage (run time) by using the TIMER function.

• Do not put any object near air inlet or air outlet, as the efficiency of the air conditioner may be reduced and may cause the air conditioner to stop running.

• Inspect and clean the filters every 3 months or as required.

Ensure that the filters are correctly inserted after cleaning.

Operation is erratic, unpredictable or unresponsive

In HEAT mode, the indoor unit temporarily stops for maximum of 10 minutes to perform the automatic defrosting operation.

In COOL mode, a mist generated by condensation formed with sudden cooling process may be emitted.

Mist may generate due to moisture generated from defrosting process when the air conditioner restarts in HEAT mode operation after defrosting

Hissing sound-- during operation or immediately after stopping the air conditioner, refrigerant flowing sound may be head.

Squeaking sound-- normal expansion and contraction of plastic and metal parts caused by temperature change during the operation.

Rushing air-- when louver resets its position.

May occur when air conditioner is used for the first time or has not been used for a long time.

Various smells generated from interior textile, furniture, or cigarette smoke absorbed into the air conditioner may be emitted. If not the case call an authorised service contractor.
