SPECIAL REMARKS
‘‘DRY’’ (
SETTING THE TIMER
) Operation
How it works?
• Once the room temperature reaches the level that was set, the
unit’s operation frequency is changed automatically.
• During DRY operation, the fan speed automatically runs at lower
speed for providing a comfortable breeze.
• ‘‘DRY’’ operation is not possible if the indoor temperature is 59 °F
or less.
Heating (
) Operation
Heating performance
• Because this air conditioner heats a room by drawing in the heat of
the outside air (heat pump system), the heating efficiency will fall
off when the outdoor temperature is very low. If sufficient heat
cannot be obtained with this air conditioner, use another heating
appliance together with it.
Defrosting
• When the outdoor temperature is low, frost or ice may form on the
heat exchanger coil, reducing heating performance. When this
happens, a microcomputer defrosting system operates. At the
same time, the fan on the indoor unit stops and the OPERATION
lamp lights red and orange alternately until defrosting is completed.
Heating operation restarts after several minutes. (This interval will
vary slightly depending upon the outdoor temperature and the way
in which frost forms.)
NOTE
In the descriptions below, the following settings are used for the
temperature and time indicator selector button on the bottom front
section of the remote controller.
• Temperature: °F
• Time: AM, PM
1. How to set the present time
(Example) To set to 10:30 pm.
Cold draft prevention
• For several minutes after the start of heating operation, the indoor
fan runs at a lower speed until the indoor heat exchanger coil has
warmed up sufficiently. However, the fan may remain stopped when
the room temperature is low. This is because the COLD DRAFT
PREVENTION SYSTEM is in operation.
Cooling ( ) operation
• Sometimes the indoor unit may not get to the set fan speed such as
LOW under cool operation at very low outdoor temperatures due to
the indoor unit being protected from ice or frost.
Power failure during operation

TIPS FOR ENERGY SAVING
Avoid
• Do not block neither the air intake nor the air outlet. It may
cause less performance, and may leads to malfunctions.
• 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.
ADJUSTING THE AIRFLOW
DIRECTION
The vertical airflow can be adjusted by moving the flap with the
remote controller. Do not move the flap with your hands. Confirm that
the remote controller has been turned on. Use the FLAP button to
set either the sweep function or one of the six airflow direction
settings.
A. Sweep function
The flap starts moving
up and down to deliver
air over the sweep
range.
B. Setting the airflow manually
SWEEP
Referring to the above
illustration, use the
COOL
FLAP button to set the DRY
airflow direction within
the range used during
the heating, cooling, or
dehumidifying
operation.
SWEEP
HEAT
C. Auto flap function
The flap is set
to the
recommended
position.
NOTE
• The flap automatically closes when the unit is off.
• During the heating operation, the fan speed will be very low and the
flap will be in the horizontal position (position ) until the air being
blown out of the unit begins to warm. Once the air warms up, the
flap position and fan speed change to the settings specified with
the remote controller.
CAUTION
• Use the FLAP button on the remote controller to adjust the
position of the flap. If you move the flap by hand, the flap
position according to the remote controller and the actual
flap position may no longer match. If this should happen,
shut off the unit, wait for the flap to close, and then turn on
the unit again; the flap position will now be normal again.
• Do not have the flap pointed down during cooling operation.
Condensation may begin to form around the air vent and drip
down.
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.
