Unit does not start:
Waiting
Odours are emitted:
• The unit does not start right away if it is turned
on immediately after it is turned off. This is to
protect the unit. Wait about 3 minutes.
• Odours may be emitted from the indoor unit,
as a result of room smells (such as furniture,
tobacco, etc.) which have circulated through
the air conditioner.
• Consult the authorized service centre for
cleaning if the odours persist.
Sound of flowing water:
• The swishing noise like flowing water is the
refrigerant flowing inside the unit..
Mist is emitted in COOL mode:
• When cooling, a thin mist may come from the
indoor unit when the room is very hot and
humid.
• After a period of time, the mist will disappear
as the room temperature and humidity
decrease.
Cracking noise:
• This is the sound of friction caused by
expansion and/or contraction of the panel
or other parts due to the change of
temperature.

No air flow from indoor unit:
• In the HEAT mode, when the temperature of
indoor heat exchanger is very low, air flow
stops in order to prevent cold air.
(Within 2 minutes.)
• In the HEAT mode, when the outdoor
temperature is low or humidity is high, frost will
form on the outdoor heat exchanger. The unit
will defrost automatically and the indoor unit
will stop blowing air for 3-12 minutes.
• When defrosting, water or vapour may be
emitted.
• In the DRY mode, the indoor fan will stop
blowing air for 3-12 minutes in order to avoid
condensated water from become vapour again.
Moisture on air outlet:
• If the unit operates in high humidity for a long
time, moisture will accumulate on the air outlet
grill and then drip off.
C5: Malfunction of connector jumper:
• Check that the connector jumper contacts
properly. If the PCB is to be replaced, please
take off the old one first.
F1: Malfunction of indoor ambient
temperature sensor
• Check that the indoor room temperature sensor
is connected properly.
F2: Malfunction of evaporator
temperature sensor
• Check that the evaporator temperature is
connected properly.
H1: Defrosting
• This is a normal function.
H6: Indoor fan block
• Check that the indoor motor terminal is
connected properly.
• Replace the fan motor or the indoor board if
disabled.
Buttons on the cover are unavailable or
inoperative
• Check that the cover is closed completely.
If any of the following situations occurs, immediately stop the unit, turn off the power
supply, and contact the authorized personnel.
ˑ
• There is a loud noise when running.
• Strong odours are emitted during operation.
• Water is leaking from the unit.
• The air switch or protection switch often trips.
• Water or other liquid is splashed into the unit.
• Power cord and power plug overheat.

Turn off the unit and turn off the
power supply.
Operation Tips
Cooling Operation
Principle:
The air conditioner intakes heat from the room and releases it outdoors, so that the indoor
ambient temperature decreases. The cooling capacity increases or decrease depending on
the outdoor temperature.
Anti-freezing function:
If the unit is running in COOL mode and at a low temperature, frost may form on the heat
exchanger. When the indoor heat exchange temperature goes below 0°C, the indoor unit’s
microcomputer will stop the compressor to protect the unit.
Heating Operation
Principle:
* The air conditioner intakes heat from the outdoors and transmits it indoors to raise the
room temperature. The heating capacity will be reduced if the outdoor temperature
decreases.
Defrosting:
* When the outdoor temperature is low but the humidity is high and the unit has been running
for some time, frost will form on the outdoor unit, affecting the heating capacity. In this case,
the auto-defrost function will turn on and the heat will stop for 8-10 mins.
* During auto-defrost, the fan motors of the indoor and outdoor units will stop.
* While defrosting, the indoor indicator flashes (or displays “H1”). The outdoor unit may emit
vapour, which is caused by the defrosting process and is not a malfunction.
* When the defrosting is complete, the heat will restart automatically.
Anti-cool air function
When running in the Heat mode and there is one of the following three statuses, the indoor
fan motor may not start in order to prevent blowing cool air into the room (within 3 mins):
1. Heat mode just started.
2. After auto-defrost is finished.
3. Heating at low temperature.
Heat Return
In the following situations, the indoor unit may still run for some time, to blow out the heat remaining
in the indoor unit.
1. In the HEAT mode when the temperature reaches the setting value, the compressor stops and the
indoor fan still runs for 60 seconds.
2. In the HEAT mode, if you turn off the unit, the compressor stops and the indoor fan still runs for
10 seconds.

Operation Tips
Tips for saving energy:
* Do not overcool or overheat.
Setting the temperature at a moderate level helps save energy.
* Cover windows with blinds or curtains.
Blocking sunlight and air from outdoors helps cool (heat).
* Clean air filters once every two weeks.
Clogged air filters make the unit function inefficiently and waste energy.
Tip for relative humidity:
Condensated water is likely to form at the air outlet if cooling or drying for a long time
when the relative humidity is higher than 80% (with doors and windows open).

Installing and Cleaning the Healthy Filter
Installation of Healthy Filter
(1) Lift the panel from the two ends of the front
panel in the direction indicated by the arrows.
Then pull the air filter downwards to remove it.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Remove the healthy filter before cleaning and reinstall it after cleaning according to the installation
instructions. Don't use a brush or abrasives to clean the filter. After cleaning, dry it in the shade.
Service Life
The healthy filter commonly has a usage lifetime of one year, under normal conditions. The silver ion
filter should be replaced when its surface turns black (green).
● This supplementary instruction is provided for units with a healthy filter. If the drawings herein
differ from the physical product, the latter shall prevail. The quantity of healthy filters shall be
based on the actual delivery.
