SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
• Before doing repair work, please read the " SAFETY PRECAUTIONS" carefully and fully understand them.
• The precautionary items here are divided into " Warning" and " Caution" items.
Items in particular which may cause death or serious injury to the service personnel if the work is not performed correctly,
are included in the " Warning" table.
However, even precautionary items identified as " Caution" also have the potential for serious consequences
if not performed correctly.
Important safety precautions are described for all items in both categories. Be sure to carefully follow all of them.
• Symbol Indication
: This symbol indicates items to which we need to pay attention.
In this triangle, a definite precautionary item is described.
: This symbol indicates the item to be prohibited.
In or close to this circle, a prohibited item is described.
: This symbol indicates the items requiring special attention or instruction.
In or close to this circle, a prohibited item is described.
• After doing repair work, perform a test run to confirm that there are no abnormalities.
At the same time, explain the precautions in use to the user.
Warning
Before performing an overhaul, disconnect the power plug or power cable from the unit.
Performing the work with the power supplied to the unit, may cause an electric shock.
When repair work or circuit inspection that requires power supply for the air conditioner, is to be performed,
do not touch the charging section.
Doing so may cause an electric shock.
Prohibit
For the step-up capacitor attached to the electric section, perform the repair work after sufficiently discharging it.
Insufficient capacitor discharge may cause an electric shock.
Do not perform repair work on the electric sections with wet hands.
Doing so may cause an electric shock.
Prohibit
Do not start or stop the air conditioner by means of connecting or disconnecting the power plug.
Doing so may cause an electric shock or fire.
Prohibit
When conducting repair work only use components included in the parts list for the corresponding unit and perform
the work with the appropriate tools.
Incorrect or poor repair work may cause an electric shock or fire.
Never modify the unit.
Doing so may cause an electric shock or fire.
Prohibit
Perform all electric work according to local applicable regulations related to electrical equipment or interior wiring
regulation and make sure to use the exclusive circuit.
Insufficient capacity to the electric circuit or defective arrangement results may cause an electric shock or fire.
Make sure to replace any power cable or lead wire showing any signs of scratch or deterioration.
Failure to do so may cause an electric shock, overheating or fire.
Make sure that there is no dust on or slack in the power plug and insert fully into the socket.
Dust or incomplete connections may cause an electric shock or fire.
Do not damage or process the power cord, as it may cause an electric shock or fire.
Prohibit
For the wiring between the indoor unit and outdoor unit, securely fix the specified cable onto the terminal plate.
Poorly fixed wiring may cause a heat or fire.
After connecting the wiring between the indoor unit and outdoor unit, attach the terminal cover securely.
Incomplete attachment of the terminal cover may cause overheating or fire.

Warning
If refrigerant gas blows off during the work, do not touch the refrigerant gas as it may cause frostbite.
Prohibit
If refrigerant gas leaks during the work, ventilate the room.
If refrigerant gas catches fire, harmful gas may be generated.
Do not mix any gas other than the specified refrigerant gas in the refrigerating cycle.
If air or other contaminants mix with the gas, pressure will become extremely high in the refrigerating cycle,
which may cause a unit breakdown."
Prohibit
When the welded section of the compressor intake or discharge pipe is to be disconnected, perform it in
a well-ventilated place after sufficiently recovering the refrigerant gas.
Any residue gas may jet out refrigerant or refrigerating machine oil, which may cause an injury.
When the work is to be performed in a high place (About 2 meters or more), make sure to wear a safety helmet,
gloves and safety belt. Insufficient safety gear may cause a serious injury in case of a fall.
When the unit is to be relocated, confirm that the new installation location has sufficient strength for the weight of the unit.
Insufficient strength of the installation location and incomplete installation work may cause an injury due to
the unit falling.
When the remote controller batteries are replaced, dispose of the old batteries out of the reach of children.
If a child swallows a battery, make sure that the child gets immediate medical attention.
Caution
Do not wash the air conditioner with water, as this may cause an electric shock or fire.
Prohibit
For the repair work in places with high humidity or moisture, make sure to ground the unit.
Failure to do so may cause an electric shock.
Confirm that the component attachment position, wiring condition, soldering condition and connector connection
are normal.
If not, it may cause overheating or fire.
Confirm that the temperature around the compressor is not too high, and then perform the repair work.
Failure to do so may cause a burn.
Perform welding work in a place with good ventilation.
If the work is performed in a poorly ventilated area, it might cause a lack of oxygen.
If the installation plate or attachment frame has deteriorated due to corrosion, etc., replace it.
Failure to do so may cause an injury due to the unit falling.
When the cleaning is to be performed, make sure to turn off the power and pull out the plug.
Touching the fan that is rotating at high speed may result in an injury.
When the indoor unit is to be removed, do not place it on an incline.
Doing so may cause wet furniture because water left inside may trickle down.
Prohibit
Do not hold the sharp end of the unit or the aluminum fins, as it may cause an injury to your hand or finger.
Prohibit
After repairs, make sure to measure the insulation resistance and confirm that the value is 1 Mohm or more.
Any insulation error may cause an electric shock.
After repairs, make sure to check the drainage of the indoor unit.
Inappropriate drainage may cause wet furniture and floors due to water leakage.

7-1. Address Setting of the Remote
Controller
The address can be set in order to prevent
interference between remote controllers when two
indoor units are installed near each other. The
address is normally set to "A." To set a different
address, it is necessary to change the address on the
second remote controller.
Fig. 1
NOTE
Once changed, you cannot restore the original
address setting of the air conditioner.
(1) Switch on the power source.
(2) Break the address-setting tab marked "A" on the
second remote controller to change the address
(Fig. 1). When the tab is removed, the address is
automatically set to B (Fig. 2).
(3) Press and hold the remote controller HIGH
POWER button and 1 HR TIMER button. Then,
press and hold the ACL (reset) button with a
pointed object such as the tip of a pen. After 5
seconds, release ACL button first, then release
HIGH POWER and 1 HR. TIMER buttons, "oP-1"
(test run) appears, blinking in the remote
controller clock display area.
(4) Each time the 1 HR TIMER button is pressed, the
display changes as shown below. Press this
button 2 times to change the display to "oP-7"
(address setting). (Fig. 3)

Once the freeze condition is detected, the air conditioner will
work less than the maximum frequency until it is turned off.
NOTE (CLxx models only)
The Freeze Prevention Control during the Low Ambient Cooling
Mode (outside air temperature:59°F(15°C) or lower) is as follows.
The compressor stops when the temperature of indoor heat
exchanger becomes less than 36°F(2°C).
The compressor restarts when the temperature of indoor heat
exchanger becomes 46°F(8°C) or higher.
The compressor will stop if the temperature of the compressor
discharge exceeds 248°F(120°C) due to shortage of gas or
other reason.
CT (Peak current cut-off control)
This function prevents the circuit breaker or fuse from operating
to open the circuit. This function works when electrical current
has increased due to an increase in the cooling load,
or to a decrease in the power supply voltage. In these cases,
operation frequency is reduced or operation is interrupted automatically to control the electrical current for operation.
When the cause of the increase in electrical current is rectified,
the system will resume operation in the original mode.

9. TROUBLESHOOTING (BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE)
9-1. Precautions before Performing Inspection or Repair
After checking the self-diagnostics monitor, turn the power OFF before starting inspection or repair.
High-capacity electrolytic capacitors are used inside the outdoor unit controller (inverter). They retain an electrical charge
(charging voltage DC 310V) even after the power is turned OFF, and some time is required for the charge to dissipate. Be
careful not to touch any electrified parts before the controller LED (red) turns OFF.
If the outdoor controller is normal, approximately 30 seconds will be required for the charge to dissipate. However, allow at
least 5 minutes for the charge to dissipate if there is thought to be any trouble with the outdoor controller.
9-2. Method of Self-Diagnostics
< Clock display >
Follow the procedure below to perform detailed trouble diagnostics.
Test run mode
Self-diagnostics mode
NOTE
1: If the operation lamp blinks every 0.5 seconds immediately when the
power is turned ON, there is an external ROM (OTP data) failure on the
indoor circuit board, or a ROM socket insertion problem, or the ROM
has not been installed.
2: The failure mode is stored in memory even when the power is not ON.
Follow the procedure below to perform diagnostics.
PROCEDURE
ON/OFF
operation
button
After turning on power to the air conditioner, use the remote controller and
follow the steps below to execute self-diagnostics.
Step 1: Press and hold the remote controller HIGH POWER button and 1
HR TIMER button. Then, press and hold the ACL (reset) button
with a pointed object such as the tip of a pen. After 5 seconds,
release ACL button first, then release HIGH POWER and 1 HR
TIMER buttons, "oP-1" (test run) appears, blinking in the remote
controller clock display area.
Step 2: Next, press the 1 HR TIMER button once to change the display
from "oP-1" to "oP-3" (self-diagnostics). (The display continues to
blink.)
Step 3: Finally press the ON/OFF button to engage self-diagnostics mode.
• The self-diagnostics function utilizes the 3 indicator lamps on the main
unit, in combinations of ON lamps, blinking lamps, and OFF lamps, to
report the existence of sensor trouble or a protective operation. (The
lamps blink or remain ON for 5 seconds, then turn OFF for 2 seconds.)
Self-diagnostics is completed when the buzzer sounds 3 short beeps.
• A maximum of 3 self-diagnostics reports are displayed, for 5 seconds
each, beginning with the most recent report. Following this display the
lamps turn OFF. In order to view the self-diagnostics results again,
press the ON/OFF button again.
• The 3 lamps remain OFF if no trouble has occurred.
<IMPORTANT> After self-diagnostics is completed, be sure to press the
ACL (reset) button to return to normal mode. The air
conditioner will not operate if this is not done.

lamps on the unit. If all 3 are blinking,
the current mode is "TEST run."
Check items (unit operation)
• The rated voltage must be present between inter-unit wirings 1 and 2.
• Connect a 5 k ohm resistor between inter-unit wirings 2 and 3. When the
voltage at both ends is measured, approximately 12 to 15V DC must
be output and the multimeter pointer must bounce once every 8
seconds.
Or instead of measuring the voltage, you can insert an LED jig and
check that the LED flickers once every 8 seconds.
If there are no problems with the above, then check the outdoor unit.
For the "Test run" procedure, refer to the Appendix B "Installation Instructions".

(There is trouble in the system that provides feedback of motor rotation speed from the
motor to the outdoor unit controller.)
[Trouble symptom 4]
Fan motor rotation speed does not change during outdoor unit operation.
[Trouble symptom 5]
Fan motor rotation speed varies excessively during outdoor unit operation.
(Remedy for symptom 3 to 5)
It is not possible to identify whether the trouble is outdoor unit controller trouble or motor trouble.
Therefore, first replace the outdoor unit controller, then (if necessary) replace the DC motor.

9-5. Noise Malfunction and Electromagnetic Interference
An inverter A/C operates using pulse signal control and high frequencies. Therefore, it is susceptible to the effects of external
noise, and is likely to cause electromagnetic interference with nearby wireless devices.
A noise filter is installed for ordinary use, preventing these problems. However, depending on the installation conditions, these
effects may still occur. Please pay attention to the points listed below.
(1) Noise malfunction
This refers to the application of high-frequency noise to the signal wires, resulting in abnormal signal pulses and malfunction.
Locations most susceptible to noise
1. Locations near broadcast stations where
there are strong electromagnetic waves
2. Locations near amateur radio (short wave)
stations
3. Locations near electronic sewing machines
and arc-welding machines
Trouble
Either of the following trouble may occur.
1. The unit may stop suddenly during
operation.
2. Indicator lamps may flicker.
Correction
(The fundamental concept is to make the
system less susceptible to noise.)
- Insulate for noise or
distance from the noise source. 1. Use shielded wires.
2. Move unit away from the noise source.
(2) Electromagnetic interference
This refers to noise generated by high-speed switching of the microcomputer and compressor. This noise radiates through
space and returns to the electric wiring, affecting any wireless devices (televisions, radios, etc.) located nearby.
Locations most susceptible to noise
1. A television or radio is located near the
A/C and A/C wiring.
2. The antenna cable for a television or
radio is located close to the A/C and A/C
wiring.
3. Locations where television and radio
signals are weak.
Trouble
Correction
1. Noise appears in the television picture, 1. Select a separate power source.
or the picture is distorted.
2. Keep the A/C and A/C wiring at least 1 meter
2. Static occurs in the radio sound.
away from wireless devices and antenna cables.
3. Change the wireless device’s antenna to a
high-sensitivity antenna.
4. Change the antenna cable to a BS coaxial cable.
5. Use a noise filter (for the wireless device).
6. Use a signal booster.

11. REFRIGERANT R410A:
SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS WHEN SERVICING UNIT
11-1. Characteristics of New Refrigerant R410A
11-1-1. What is New Refrigerant R410A?
R410A is a new refrigerant that contains two types of pseudo-non-azeotropic refrigerant mixture. Its
refrigeration capacity and energy efficiency are about the same level as the conventional refrigerant, R22.
11-1-2. Components (mixing proportions)
HFC32 (50%) / HFC125 (50%)
11-1-3. Characteristics
Less toxic, more chemically stable refrigerant
The composition of refrigerant R410A changes whether it is in a gaseous phase or liquid phase. Thus, when
there is a refrigerant leak the basic performance of the air conditioner may be degraded because of a change in
composition of the remaining refrigerant. Therefore, do not add new refrigerant. Instead, recover the
remaining refrigerant with the refrigerant recovery unit. Then, after evacuation, totally recharge the specified
amount of refrigerant with the new refrigerant at its normal mixed composition state (in liquid phase).
When refrigerant R410A is used, the composition will differ depending on whether it is in gaseous or liquid
phase, and the basic performance of the air conditioner will be degraded if it is charged while the refrigerant is in
gaseous state. Thus, always charge the refrigerant while it is in liquid phase.
CAUTION
Ether-type oil is used for compressor oil for R410A-type units, which is different
from the mineral oil used for R22. Thus more attention to moisture prevention and
faster replacement work compared with conventional models are required.
62
11-2. Checklist before Servicing
Use a clutch-type flare tool for R410A or the conventional flare tool. Note that sizes of the resultant flares differ
between these two tools. Where a conventional flare tool is used, make sure to observe A Specification (amount of
extrusion) by using the flare spacer.
Specification A
Diameter of tube D
Flare tool for R410A
Conventional flare tool (for R22)
Dia.3/8" (9.52 mm)
0 to 0.0196"
0.0472"
Dia.1/2" (12.7 mm)

Dia.5/8" (15.88 mm)
Size of flare
D

A
Spacer
A
Flare tool for R410A
Conventional flare tool (R22)
Tubing precautions
Refrigerant R410A is more easily affected by dust or moisture compared with R22, thus be sure to temporarily
cover the ends of the tubing with caps or tape prior to installation.
Never use 0.0276" (0.7 mm)-thick copper tubing or tubing which is less than 0.0315" (0.8 mm) in thickness, since
air conditioners with R410A are subject to higher pressure than those using R22 and R407C.
No addition of compressor oil for R410A
No additional charge of compressor oil is permitted.
No use of refrigerant other than R410A
Never use a refrigerant other than R410A.
If refrigerant R410A is exposed to fire
Through welding, etc., toxic gas may be released when R410A refrigerant is exposed to fire. Therefore, be sure
to provide ample ventilation during installation work.
Caution in case of R410A leak
Check for possible leak points with the special leak detector for R410A. If a leak occurs inside the room,
immediately provide thorough ventilation.
63
11-3. Tools Specifically for R410A
For servicing, use the following tools for R410A
Tool Distinction
Tool Name
Gauge manifold
Charging hose
Gas leak detector
Refrigerant cylinder
Charging cylinder
Refrigerant recovery unit
Tools specifically for R410A
Vacuum pump with anti-reverse flow (*1)
(Solenoid valve-installed type, which prevents oil from flowing back into the
unit when the power is off, is recommended.)
Vacuum pump (*2)...can be used if the following adapter is attached.
Vacuum pump adapter (reverse-flow prevention adapter) (*3).
(Solenoid valve-installed adapter attached to a conventional vacuum pump.)
Electronic scale for charging refrigerant
Flare tool
Bender
Tools which can be commonly used for R22,
R407C, and R410A
CAUTION
Torque wrench
Cutter, reamer
Welding tool, nitrogen gas cylinder
The above tools specifically for R410A must not be used for R22 and R407C.
Doing so will cause malfunction of the unit.
For the above vacuum pump (*1, *2) and vacuum pump adapter (*3), those for
R22-type units can be used for R410A-type. However, they must be used
exclusively for R410A and never alternately with R22 and R407C.
To prevent other refrigerants (R22, R407C) from being mistakenly charged to this unit, shape and external
diameter of the service port screw has been altered.
<External diameter of service port> R410A : 5/16"
R22, R407C : 1/4"
11-4. Tubing Installation Procedures
When the tubes are connected, always apply HAB oil on the flare portions to improve the sealing of tubing.
The following is the HAB oil generally used:
Esso: ZERICE S32
NOTE
For details on tubing installation procedures, refer to the installation manuals attached to the indoor
unit and outdoor unit.
64
11-5. In Case of Compressor Malfunction
CAUTION
Should the compressor malfunction, be sure to make the switch to a replacement
compressor as quickly as possible.
Use only the tools indicated exclusively for R410A.
Specifically for R410A."
See "11-3. Tools
11-5-1. Procedure for Replacing Compressor
(1) Recovering refrigerant
Any remaining refrigerant inside the unit should not be
released to the atmosphere, but recovered using the
refrigerant recovery unit for R410A.
(1) Recover refrigerant
OK
Do not reuse the recovered refrigerant, since it will contain
impurities.
(2) Replacing Compressor
Soon after removing seals of both discharge and suction
tubes of the new compressor, replace it quickly.
(2) Replace compressor
OK
(3) Checking for sealing
Use nitrogen gas for the pressurized gas, and never use a
refrigerant other than R410A. Also do not use oxygen or
any flammable gas.
(3) Check for sealing
OK
(4) Evacuation
Use a solenoid valve-installed vacuum pump so that
even if power is cut off in the middle of evacuation of air
due to a power interruption, the valve will prevent the
pump oil from flowing back.
(4) Evacuation
OK
The equipment may be damaged if moisture remains in
the tubing, thus carry out the evacuation thoroughly.
When using a vacuum pump with exhaust air volume more
than 0.883 cu.ft./min. and ultimate vacuum pressure rate
of 50 micron Hg.
Standard time for evacuation
Length of tubing
Less than 33 ft. (10 m)
More than 33 ft. (10 m)
Evacuation time
More than 10 minutes
More than 15 minutes

(5) Recharge
(5) Recharging
Configuration and characteristics of cylinders
Be sure to charge the specified amount of
refrigerant in liquid state using the service port
of the wide tube service valve. The proper
amount is listed on the unit's nameplate.
Valve
When the entire amount cannot be charged all at
once, charge gradually while operating the unit in
Cooling Operation.
CAUTION
Liquid
Never charge a large amount
of liquid refrigerant at once to
the unit. This may cause
damage to the compressor.
Single valve
Charge liquid refrigerant with
cylinder in up-side-down position.
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%.
Fig. 1
Valve
Also, charge the minimum necessary amount to
the charging cylinder before using it to charge
the air conditioning unit.
Example:
Liquid
In case of charging refrigerant to a unit requiring
1.68 lb. (0.76 Kg) using a capacity of a 22 lb. (10
Kg) cylinder, the minimum necessary amount for
the cylinder is:
Single valve (with siphon tube)
Charge with cylinder in normal position.
1.68 + 22 0.20 = 6.08 lb.
(0.76 + 10 0.20 = 2.76 Kg)
Fig. 2
For the remaining refrigerant, refer to the
instructions of the refrigerant manufacturer.
If using a charging cylinder, transfer the specified
amount of liquid refrigerant from the refrigerant
cylinder to the charging cylinder.
Prepare an evacuated charging cylinder
beforehand.
CAUTION
To prevent the composition
of R410A from changing,
never bleed the refrigerant
gas into the atmosphere
while transferring the
refrigerant. (Fig. 3)

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.
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.

Please Read Before Starting
When Transporting
Be careful when picking up and moving the indoor and outdoor units. Get a partner to help, and bend your knees when
lifting to reduce strain on your back. Sharp edges or thin aluminum fins on the air conditioner can cut your fingers.
This air conditioning system meets strict safety and operating
standards. As the installer or service person, it is an important
part of your job to install or service the system so it operates
safely and efficiently.
When Installing…
Select an installation location which is rigid and strong
enough to support or hold the unit, and select a location for
easy maintenance.
For safe installation and trouble-free operation, you
must:
Carefully read this instruction booklet before beginning.
Follow each installation or repair step exactly as shown.
Observe all local, state, and national electrical codes.
Pay close attention to all warning and caution notices
given in this manual.
This symbol refers to a hazard
or unsafe practice which can
WARNING
result in severe personal injury
or death.
This symbol refers to a hazard
or unsafe practice which can
CAUTION
result in personal injury or product or property damage.
…In a Ceiling or Wall
Make sure the ceiling/wall is strong enough to hold the
unit’s weight. It may be necessary to construct a strong
wood or metal frame to provide added support.
…In a Room
Properly insulate any tubing run inside a room to prevent
“sweating” that can cause dripping and water damage to
walls and floors.
Keep the fire alarm and the air
outlet at least 1.5 m away from
CAUTION
the unit.
If Necessary, Get Help
These instructions are all you need for most installation
sites and maintenance conditions. If you require help for a
special problem, contact our sales/service outlet or your
certified dealer for additional instructions.
…In Moist or Uneven Locations
In Case of Improper Installation
…In an Area with High Winds
Use a raised concrete pad or concrete blocks to provide a
solid, level foundation for the outdoor unit. This prevents
water damage and abnormal vibration.
Securely anchor the outdoor unit down with bolts and a
metal frame. Provide a suitable air baffle.
The manufacturer shall in no way be responsible for improper installation or maintenance service, including failure to
follow the instructions in this document.
…In a Snowy Area (for Heat Pump-type Systems)
Install the outdoor unit on a raised platform that is higher
than drifting snow. Provide snow vents.

Air intake baffle
Wind
NOTE
It is recommended to use baffle plates for models
CU-KS12NK1A and CU-KS18NKUA. The baffle plates
are not normally required for the other models.
Front
When the outdoor unit is installed in a position exposed
to strong wind (such as seasonal winds with low air temperature in winter), baffle plates must be installed on the
outdoor unit. (Fig. 5c)
Back
This unit is designed so that the fan of the outdoor unit
runs at low speed when the air conditioner is operated at
low outdoor air temperatures. When the outdoor unit is
exposed to strong wind, the system pressure drops
because of the freeze protector.
No air intake baffle
required on
this side.
Install a pair of windbaffle plates at the front and back of
the outdoor unit if it will be subject to strong wind during
the winter. (Figs. 5c to 5k)

(2) To install the drain hose, first place 1 of the 2 hose bands
over the unit drain port and the other hose band over the
hard PVC pipe (not supplied). Then connect both ends of
the supplied drain hose. (Fig. 6-5)
(3) On the unit drain side, grasp the hose band with pliers
and insert the drain hose all the way to the base.
If other commercially available hose bands are used, the
drain hose may become pinched or wrinkled and there is
danger of water leakage. Therefore be sure to use the
supplied hose bands. When sliding the hose bands, be
careful to avoid scratching the drain hose.
Do not use adhesive when connecting the supplied drain
hose to the drain port (either on the main unit or the PVC
pipe).
Reasons: a) It may cause water to leak from the connection. Since the connection is slippery just
after the adhesive has been applied, the
pipe easily slips off.
b) The pipe cannot be removed when maintenance is needed.

each is approximately 3/16"
(5 mm) to 15/16" (25 mm) from
the end of the supplied drain
hose.
Air bleeder prohibited
NOTE
Hose band
(2 bands, supplied)
In cases where it is necessary to raise the height of the
drain piping, the drain piping can be raised to a maximum
height of 2.78 ft. (850 mm) above the bottom surface of
the ceiling. Under no conditions attempt to raise it higher
than 2.78 ft. (850 mm) above the bottom surface of the
ceiling. Doing so will result in water leakage. (Fig. 6-7)
Do not use natural drainage.
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. 6-8)
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. 6-9)
Provide insulation for any pipes that are run indoors.
Do not install an air bleeder as
this may cause water to spray
from the drain pipe outlet.

5-6. Taping the Tubes
(1) At this time, the 2 refrigerant tubes (and electrical wire
if local codes permit) should be taped together with
armoring tape. The drain hose may also be included
and taped together as 1 bundle with the tubing.
(2) Wrap the armoring tape from the bottom of the outdoor
unit to the top of the tubing where it enters the wall. As
you wrap the tubing, overlap half of each previous tape
turn. (Fig. 25)
Clamp

6. Air Purging
Air and moisture remaining in the refrigerant system have
undesirable effects as indicated below. Therefore, they must
be purged completely.
pressure in the system rises
operating current rises
cooling (or heating) efficiency drops
moisture in the air may freeze and block capillary tubing
water may lead to corrosion of parts in the refrigerant system
Outdoor unit
Air Purging with a Vacuum Pump (for Test Run)
(1) Check that each tube (both narrow and wide tubes)
between the indoor and outdoor units have been properly connected and all wiring for the test run has been
completed. Note that both narrow and wide tube service
valves on the outdoor unit are kept closed at this stage.
Manifold valve
(Exclusively for R410A)
(2) Using an adjustable wrench or box wrench, remove the
valve caps from the service valve on both narrow and
wide tubes.
(3) Connect a vacuum pump and a manifold valve (with
pressure gauges) to the service port on the wide tube
service valve. (Fig. 27)
CAUTION
CAUTION
Pressure

The service port on the wide tube service valve
uses a Schrader core valve to access the
refrigerant system. The valve core is similar to
those used in automobile tires. Therefore, be
sure to use a vacuum hose connector which
has a push-pin inside.
Be sure to use a manifold valve for air
purging. If it is not available, use a stop
valve (field supply) for this purpose. The
“Hi” knob of the manifold valve must
always be kept closed.

(4) With the “Lo” knob of the manifold valve open, run
the vacuum pump. The operation time for the vacuum pump varies with tubing length and the capacity
of the pump. The following table shows the amount
of time for evacuation:
NOTE
To prevent other refrigerants from being mistakenly
charged to units which use R410A, the size of the
charge port on the service valve is different from the
one for other refrigerant types. For servicing such as
recharging, the specified charging hose, manifold and
vacuum pump adapter (with reverse flow prevention)
for R410A must be used.

Required time for evacuation when
26.4 gal/h (100 liter/h) vacuum pump is used
If tubing length is
less than 33 ft. (10 m)
If tubing length is
more than 33 ft. (10 m)
10 min. or more
15 min. or more
NOTE
(5) With the vacuum pump still running, close the “Lo”
knob of the manifold valve. Then stop the vacuum
pump.
The required time in Table 6 is calculated based on the
assumption that the ideal (or target) vacuum condition
is around 0.193 psi (10 mmHg abs.).
(6) With the hex wrench, turn the valve stem on the
narrow tube service valve counter-clockwise by
90 degrees (1/4 turn) for 10 seconds, and then turn
the stem clockwise to close it again. (Fig. 28)
90° (1/4 turn)
Narrow tube
Hex wrench
CAUTION
Be sure to completely insert the hex
wrench before attempting to turn the valve.
(7) Leak test all joints at the tubing (both indoor and outdoors) with
soapy water. Bubbles indicate a leak. Tighten the joint more
when leaks, then check if there is no leak. Be sure to wipe off the
soap with a clean cloth.
(8) With the hex wrench, turn the wide tube service valve stem
counter-clockwise to fully open the valve.
(9) Turn the narrow tube service valve stem counter-clockwise to
fully open the valve.
(10) Loosen the vacuum hose connected to the wide tube service
port slightly to release the pressure. Then, remove the hose.
CAUTION
This may cause the refrigerant gas to
leak. In order to avoid this, take off the
hose quickly.
(11) Fasten the valve cap on the wide tube service port securely
with an adjustable wrench or box wrench. Next, mount the
valve cap on the service valve and tighten it to 170 lbs·in
(200 kgf·cm) with a torque wrench. This process is very
important to prevent gas from leaking from the system.
(12) Test run the air conditioner. (See next page.)
(13) While the air conditioner is running, apply liquid soap to
check for any gas leaks around the service valves or caps.
(14) If there is no leakage, stop the air conditioner.
(15) Wipe off the soap on the tubing.
This completes air purging with a vacuum pump and the air conditioner is ready for actual operation.
