• Do not touch the air inlet or the
sharp aluminum fins of the
outdoor unit. You may get injured.
• Do not sit or step on the unit,
you may fall down accidentally.
• Do not stick any object into the
FAN CASE.
You may be injured and the
unit may be damaged.
• This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
• This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined
by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
• FCC Caution: To assure continued compliance, follow the attached installation instructions.
Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could
void the user’s authority to operate this equipment.
Check of Density Limit
The room in which the air conditioner is to be
installed requires a design that in the event of refrigerant gas leaking out, its density will not exceed a set
limit.
The refrigerant (R410A), which is used in the air conditioner, is safe, without the toxicity or combustibility of ammonia,
and is not restricted by laws imposed to protect the ozone
layer. However, since it contains more than air, it poses the
risk of suffocation if its density should rise excessively. Suffocation from leakage of refrigerant is almost non-existent.
With the recent increase in the number of high density
buildings, however, the installation of multi air conditioner
systems is on the increase because of the need for effective use of floor space, individual control, energy conservation by curtailing heat and carrying power, etc.
Most importantly, the multi air conditioner system is able
to replenish a large amount of refrigerant compared to
conventional individual air conditioners. If a single unit of
the multi air conditioner system is to be installed in a
small room, select a suitable model and installation procedure so that if the refrigerant accidentally leaks out, its
density does not reach the limit (and in the event of an
emergency, measures can be made before injury can
occur).
ASHRAE and the International Mechanical Code of the
ICC as well as CSA provide guidance and define safeguards related to the use of refrigerants, all of which define
a Refrigerant Concentration Level (RCL) of 25 pounds
per 1,000 cubic feet for R410A refrigerant.
For additional guidance and precautions related to
refrigerant safety, please refer to the following documents:
International Mechanical Code 2009 (IMC-2009)

Precautions for Installation Using New Refrigerant
1. Care regarding tubing
1-1. Process tubing
Material: Use C1220 phosphorous deoxidized copper specified in JIS H3300 “Copper and Copper Alloy Seamless Pipes and Tubes.”
Tubing size: Be sure to use the sizes indicated in the table below.
Use a tube cutter when cutting the tubing, and be sure to remove any flash. This also applies to distribution
joints (optional).
When bending tubing ø5/8" or smaller, use a bending radius that is 4 times the outer diameter of the tubing or larger.
Use sufficient care in handling the tubing. Seal the tubing ends with
caps or tape to prevent dirt, moisture, or other foreign substances
from entering. These substances can result in system malfunction.

1-2. Prevent impurities including water, dust and oxide from entering the tubing. Impurities can cause R410A
refrigerant deterioration and compressor defects. Due to the features of the refrigerant and refrigerating
machine oil, the prevention of water and other impurities becomes more important than ever.
2. Be sure to recharge the refrigerant only in liquid form.
2-1. Since R410A is a non-azeotrope, recharging the refrigerant in gas form can lower performance and cause
defects of the unit.
2-2. Since refrigerant composition changes and performance decreases when gas leaks, collect the remaining
refrigerant and recharge the required total amount of new refrigerant after fixing the leak.
3. Different tools required
3-1. Tool specifications have been changed due to the characteristics of R410A.
Some tools for R22- and R407C-type refrigerant systems cannot be used.

Vacuum pump
Yes
Yes
Use a conventional vacuum pump if it is equipped
with a check valve. If it has no check valve,
purchase and attach a vacuum pump adapter.
Leak detector
Yes
No
Leak detectors for CFC and HCFC that
react to chlorine do not function because
R410A contains no chlorine. Leak detector
for HFC134a can be used for R410A.
Flaring oil
Yes
No
For systems that use R22, apply mineral oil (Suniso oil)
to the flare nuts on the tubing to prevent refrigerant
leakage. For machines that use R407C or R410A, apply
synthetic oil (ether oil) to the flare nuts.

3-2. Use R410A exclusive cylinder only.
Configuration and characteristics of cylinders
When charging with a refrigerant cylinder, use an
electronic scale for charging refrigerant. In this
case, if the volume of refrigerant in the cylinder
becomes less than 20% of the fully-charged
amount, the composition of the refrigerant starts
to change. Thus, do not use the refrigerant if the
amount in the charging cylinder is less than 20%.
Valve
Also, charge the minimum necessary amount to
the charging cylinder before using it to charge the
air conditioning unit.
Liquid

CAUTION
1. This unit requires no additional refrigerant charge up to 100 ft. tubing length.
In case of more than 100 ft., additional
refrigerant charge is required.
2. In case of multi type installation, indoor
units should be installed within the
same room. If multi type indoor units
are installed in different rooms, temperature control may develop problems
because thermostat operation must
follow the thermostat condition of 1
indoor unit only (the main unit).
WARNING
Always check the gas density
for the room in which the unit is
installed.
■ Check of limit density
When installing an air conditioner in a room, it is necessary to ensure that even if the refrigerant gas accidentally escapes, its density does not exceed the limit level
for that room.
CAUTION
Pay special attention to any
location, such as a basement
or recessed area, etc. where
leaked refrigerant can collect,
since refrigerant gas is heavier than air.

CAUTION
● Do not install an air bleeder tube as this may cause
water to spray from the drain pipe outlet. (Fig. 3-65)
Not good
● If it is necessary to increase the height of the drain
pipe, the section directly after the connection port
can be raised a maximum of 19-11/16".
Do not raise it any higher than 19-11/16", as this
could result in water leaks. (Fig. 3-66)
Fig. 3-65
11-13/16" or less
● Do not install the pipe with an upward gradient from
the connection port. This will cause the drain water
to flow backward and leak when the unit is not
operating. (Fig. 3-67)
● Do not apply force to the piping on the unit side
when connecting the drain pipe. The pipe should not
be allowed to hang unsupported from its connection
to the unit. Fasten the pipe to a wall, frame, or other
support as close to the unit as possible. (Fig. 3-68)

Confirm that the indoor unit should be installed in a horizontal position.
Use the level gauge or vinyl tube and check every four corner of the
unit is in horizontal.
If the air outlet duct flange is positioned with downward gradient,
there is in danger of water splash or drainage.
Also, dust may sometimes be contaminated inside the drain pan caused
by the residual drain water.
Install the air outlet duct flange side in horizontal or upward and within the
range of 3/8" in the upward direction.
Never install it with a downward gradient against horizontal.

4. ELECTRICAL WIRING
4-1. General Precautions on Wiring
(1) Before wiring, confirm the rated voltage of the unit
as shown on its nameplate, then carry out the wiring closely following the wiring diagram.
(2) Provide a power outlet to be used exclusively for
each unit, and a power supply disconnect and
circuit breaker for overcurrent protection should be
provided in the exclusive line.
(7) Regulations on wire diameters differ from locality
to locality. For field wiring rules, must follow your
LOCAL ELECTRICAL CODES before beginning.
You must ensure that installation complies with all
relevant rules and regulations.
(8) To prevent malfunction of the air conditioner
caused by electrical noise, care must be taken
when wiring as follows:
(3) To prevent possible hazards from insulation
failure, the unit must be grounded.
The remote control wiring and the inter-unit
control wiring should be wired apart from the
inter-unit power wiring.
(4) Each wiring connection must be done in
accordance with the wiring system diagram.
Wrong wiring may cause the unit to disorder or
become damaged.
(5) Do not allow wiring to touch the refrigerant tubing,
compressor, or any moving parts of the fan.
(6) Unauthorized changes in the internal wiring can be
very dangerous. The manufacturer will accept no
responsibility for any damage or malfunction that
occurs as a result of such unauthorized changes.
Use shielded wires for inter-unit control wiring
between units and ground the shield on one side
only.
(9) If the power supply cord of this appliance is
damaged, it must be replaced by a repair shop
appointed by the manufacturer, because specialpurpose tools are required.
(10) All wiring used must be Class 1.
4-2. Recommended Wire Length and Wire Diameter for Power Supply System

5-3. Address Switches
If you are installing more than 1 indoor unit (up to 6) in the same room, it is necessary for you to assign each unit its
own address so they each can be operated by their remote controller.
Up to 6 indoor units can be controlled separately through the address switches. The operating control has the reception
address switch and the remote controller has the transmission address switch. This function is utilized by matching the
transmission and reception address switches.

5-21. Preparing for the Test Run
5-21-1. Changing the room temperature sensor
Room temperature sensors are installed inside the indoor unit and the wireless remote controller.
Either room temperature sensor can be used.
When “Unit Sensor” is indicated on the wireless remote controller’s LCD, the indoor unit sensor is operating as the
room temperature sensor.
To change to the remote control sensor, open the remote control cover and press the SENSOR button once. The
“Unit Sensor” display disappears, and the remote control sensor becomes the room temperature sensor.
CAUTION
If the temperature data from the remote controller is not communicated to the indoor
unit for a period of 10 minutes when the remote control sensor is selected, the unit
automatically switches back to the indoor unit sensor.
Install the remote controller in a location where the signal can reliably be received by
the indoor unit.
5-21-2. Using the remote controller
Face the remote controller toward the receiver (indoor unit).
The maximum distance where the remote controller signal can be received is approximately 26 ft., however this
distance is only a guide. The actual distance may vary somewhat depending on battery capacity and other
conditions.
Make sure there are no obstructions which can block the signal between the remote controller and the receiver.
When the remote controller signal is received correctly, the indoor unit beeps.
(It beeps twice only when operation is started.)

5-22. Precautions
Request that the customer be present at the time the test run is performed. Explain the Operating Instructions to
the customer, and then have the customer actually operate the system.
Be sure to pass the manual and warranty certificate to the customer.
Verify that the AC 208 / 230 V wiring is not connected to the terminal plate which is used to connect the inter-unit
control wiring.
* If AC 208 / 230 V is accidentally applied to this terminal plate, the fuse (0.5A for both indoor and outdoor units) on

■ Care and Cleaning
WARNING
1. For safety, be sure to turn the air conditioner off and also to disconnect
the power before cleaning.
2. Do not pour water on the indoor unit to clean it. This will damage the
internal components and cause an electric shock hazard.
Air intake and outlet side
(Indoor unit)
Clean the air intake and outlet side of the indoor unit with a vacuum cleaner
brush, or wipe them with a clean, soft cloth.
If these parts are stained, use a clean cloth moistened with a mild liquid
detergent. When cleaning the air outlet side, be careful not to force the vanes
out of place.
CAUTION
1. Never use solvents or harsh chemicals when cleaning the indoor unit. Do
not wipe plastic parts using very hot water.
2. Some metal edges and the fins are sharp and may cause injury if handled improperly; be especially careful when you clean these parts.
3. The internal coil and other components of the outdoor unit must be
cleaned every year. Consult your dealer or service center.
Air filter
The air filter collects dust and other particles from the air and should be cleaned at
regular intervals as indicated in the table below or when the filter indication ( ) on the
display of the remote controller (wired type) shows that the filter needs cleaning. If
the filter gets blocked, the efficiency of the air conditioner drops greatly.

*Low Silhouette Ducted type (F1) :
An air filter is not provided with this air conditioner at the time of shipment. To get
clean air and to extend the service life of the air conditioner, an air filter must be
installed in the air intake. For installation and cleaning the air filter, consult your
dealer or service center.
NOTE
How to clean the filter
The frequency with which the filter should be cleaned depends on the environment
in which the unit is used.
1. Remove the air filter from the air intake grille.
2. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove light dust. If there is sticky dust on the filter,
wash the filter in lukewarm, soapy water, rinse it in clean water, and dry it.

unit are flashing.
■ Tips for Energy Saving
Avoid
• Do not block the air intake and outlet of the unit. If either is obstructed, the
unit will not work well, and may be damaged.
• Do not let direct sunlight into the room. Use sunshades, blinds or curtains.
If the walls and ceiling of the room are warmed by the sun, it will take longer to
cool the room.
Do
• Always try to keep the air filter clean. (Refer to “Care and Cleaning”.) A clogged
filter will impair the performance of the unit.
• To prevent conditioned air from escaping, keep windows, doors and any other
openings closed.
NOTE
Should the power fail while the unit is running
If the power supply for this unit is temporarily cut off, the unit will automatically
resume operation once power is restored using the same settings before the
power was cut off.
