7.5.2.2 The heat pump operation.
The heat pump’s operation mode correlates to whether the compressor is operating. When the
compressor is on and the electric heater is off, the fan motor will operate according to the anti-cold
wind of heat pump. The four-way valve is always on. If T1<Ts-2°F, the compressor is on. If
T1≥Ts+2°F, the compressor will be off. The fan motor also works in correlation to whether the
compressor is in operation. If T2>TE7, the compressor will turn off. When the DAT protection is
triggered, it will prevent the compressor from operating.

www.mideaaircon.com 25
9. Power Connection Options
Appropriate power cord accessory kit is determined by the voltage and amperage of the branch circuit.
The unit does not come with a power cord (or hardwire kit). An accessory power cord must be ordered
to connect the unit to an outlet. If the unit is to be hardwired, an accessory hardwire kit must be
ordered.
NOTE: For 265V units, if a power cord is selected, it must plug into the 265V subbase accessory.
Cord-connected Units
The 240V field supplied outlet must match the plug for the standard 208/230V units and be within reach
of the service cord. The standard cord-connected 265V units require an accessory electrical subbase
for operation.
Power Cord Protection
The power cord for 230/208v units provide power cord fire protection. The unit’s power automatically
disconnects when unsafe conditions are detected. Power to the unit can be restored by pressing the
reset button on plug. Upon completion of unit installation for 230/208V models, an operational check
should be performed using the TEST/RESET buttons on the plug.
NOTE: The 265V models do not incorporate this feature as they require use of the electrical subbase
accessory. Our subbase accessory is being developed.
The appearance of the power plug will differ depending on the supplier.

Possible Causes
Solutions
UNIT DOES NOT START
Unit is unplugged.
Blown fuse.
Tripped circuit breaker.
Unit is turned off.
Unit is in a protection mode.
UNIT NOT COOLING/HEATING ROOM
Air discharge section is blocked.
Temperature setting is not high or low enough.
Note: Setpoint limits might not allow unit to
heat or cool the room to the temperature
desired. Check section on DIP switch settings.
Air filters are dirty.
Room is excessively hot or cold when unit starts.
Vent door left open.
Unit may be in a protection mode.
Compressor is in a time delay.
DISPLAY HAS STRANGE NUMBERS/
CHARACTERS ON IT
UNIT MAKING NOISES
Check that plug is securely connected to outlet.
Note: Plug has a test/reset button on it. Make sure that the plug
has not tripped.
Replace fuse. See Note 1 below.
Reset circuit breaker. See Note 1 below.
Turn unit on (bottom right button on keypad).
Make sure curtains, blinds, and/or furniture are not restricting or
blocking unit’s airflow.
Reset to a lower or higher temperature setting.
Remove and clean filters.
Allow sufficient amount of time for unit to heat or cool the room.
Start heating or cooling before outdoor temperature, cooking heat,
or people make room uncomfortable.
Close vent door.
Check DIP switch settings for desired comfort.
Wait approximately 3 minutes for compressor to start.
WATER DRIPPING OUTSIDE
WATER DRIPPING INSIDE
Wall sleeve is not installed properly.
ICE OR FROST FORMS ON INDOOR COIL
Low outdoor temperature.
Dirty filters.
COMPRESSOR PROTECTION
Power may have cycled, so compressor is in a
restart protection.
The unit may be in a protection mode.
The unit may have been set for °C instead of °F.
Clicking, gurgling, and whooshing noises are normal during
operation.
If a drain kit has not been installed, condensation runoff during hot
and humid weather is normal. See Note 2 below.
If a drain kit has been installed and is connected to a drain system,
check gaskets and fittings around drain for leaks and plug them.
Wall sleeve must be installed correctly for proper drainage of
condensation. Check that installation is levelled and make any
necessary adjustments.
When outdoor temperature is approximately 55°F or below, frost
may form on the indoor coil when unit is in Cooling mode. Switch
unit to FAN operation until ice or frost melts.
Remove and clean filters.
Random Compressor Restart: Whenever the unit is plugged in or
power has been restarted, a random compressor restart will occur.
After a power outage, the compressor will restart after
approximately 3 minutes.
Compressor Protection: To prevent short cycling of compressor,
there is a random startup delay of 3 minutes and a minimum
compressor run time of 3 minutes.
NOTES
1. If circuit breaker is tripped or fuse is blown more than once, contact a qualified electrician.
2. If unit is installed where condensation drainage could drip in an undesirable location, an accessory
drain kit should be installed and connected to drain system.
