ATTENTION
■ About batteries
• When replacing the batteries, use batteries of the same type, and replace the two old batteries together.
• When the system is not used for a long time, take the batteries out.
• The batteries will last for approximately one year. If the remote controller display begins to
fade and the degradation of reception performance occurs within a year, however, replace
both two batteries with new size AAA alkaline batteries.
• The attached batteries are provided for the initial use of the system.
The usable period of the batteries may be short depending on the manufactured date of the air conditioner.
■ About remote controller
• Never expose the remote controller to direct sunlight.
• Dust on the signal transmitter or receiver will reduce the sensitivity. Wipe off dust with soft cloth.
• Signal communication may be disabled if an electronic-starter-type fluorescent lamp (such
as inverter-type lamps) is in the room. Consult the shop if that is the case.
• If the remote controller signals happen to operate another appliance, move that appliance
to somewhere else, or consult the shop.

NOTE
■ Tips for saving energy
• Be careful not to cool (heat) the room too much.
Keeping the temperature setting at a moderate level helps save energy.
• Cover windows with a blind or a curtain.
Blocking sunlight and air from outdoors increases the cooling (heating) effect.
• Clogged air filters cause inefficient operation and waste energy.
Clean them once in about every two weeks.
Recommended temperature setting
For cooling:26°C – 28°C
For heating:20°C – 24°C
■ Please note
• The air conditioner always consumes 15-35 watts of electricity even while it is not operating.

When the airflow is set to “ ”, the noise from the indoor unit will become quieter.
Use this when making the noise quieter.
NOTE
■ Note on HEAT operation
• Since this air conditioner heats the room by taking heat from outdoor air to indoors, the heating
capacity becomes smaller in lower outdoor temperatures. If the heating effect is insufficient, it
is recommended to use another heating appliance in combination with the air conditioner.
• The heat pump system heats the room by circulating hot air around all parts of the room.
After the start of heating operation, it takes some time before the room gets warmer.
• In heating operation, frost may occur on the outdoor unit and lower the heating capacity. In
that case, the system switches into defrosting operation to take away the frost.
• During defrosting operation, hot air does not flow out of indoor unit.
• A pinging sound may be heard during defrosting operation, which, however does not mean
that the air conditioner has failures.
■ Note on COOL operation
• This air conditioner cools the room by blowing the hot air in the room outside, so if the
outside temperature is high, the performance of the air conditioner drops.
■ Note on DRY operation
• The computer chip works to rid the room of humidity while maintaining the temperature as
much as possible. It automatically controls temperature and airflow rate, so manual
adjustment of these functions is unavailable.
■ Note on AUTO operation
• In AUTO operation, the system selects a temperature setting and an appropriate operation
mode (COOL or HEAT) based on the room temperature at the start of the operation.
• The system automatically reselects setting at a regular interval to bring the room
temperature to user-setting level.
• If you do not like AUTO operation, manually change the set temperature.
■ Note on airflow rate setting
• At smaller airflow rates, the cooling (heating) effect is also smaller.

mode. (See the figure.)
Three-Dimensional (3-D) Airflow
• Using three-dimensional airflow circulates
cold air, which tends to collected at the bottom
of the room, and hot air, which tends to collect
near the ceiling, throughout the room,
preventing areas of cold and hot developing.
■ ATTENTION
• Always use a remote controller to adjust the
angles of the flaps and louvers. If you
attempt to move it forcibly with hand when it
is swinging, the mechanism may be broken.
• Always use a remote controller to adjust the
louvers angles. In side the air outlet, a fan is

COMFORT AIRFLOW and
INTELLIGENT EYE Operation
Notes on “INTELLIGENT EYE Operation”
• While the air conditioner is in INTELLIGENT EYE operation, the louvers will adjust the
airflow direction if there are people in the sensing areas of the INTELLIGENT EYE so that
the leftward or rightward airflow will not be directed to the people.
If no people are detected in either area 1 or 2 in 20 minutes, the air conditioner will go into
energy-saving mode with the set temperature shifted by 2°C.
The air conditioner may go into energy-saving operation even if there are people in the
areas. This may occur depending on the clothes the people are wearing if there are no
movements of the people in the areas.
• The airflow direction from the louvers will be leftward if there are people in both areas 1 and 2 or if there
is a person right in front of the sensors because the sensors on the both sides will detect the person.
• Due to the position of the sensor, people might be exposed to the airflow of the indoor unit if
they are close to the front side of the indoor unit.
If there are people close to the front side of the indoor unit or in both areas, it is recommended
to use the COMFORT AIRFLOW and INTELLIGENT EYE functions simultaneously. When
both of them are in use, the air conditioner will not direct the airflow towards the people.
• Sensor may not detect moving objects further than 5m away. (Check the application range)
• Sensor detection sensitivity changes according to indoor unit location, the speed of
passersby, temperature range, etc.
• The sensor also mistakenly detects pets, sunlight, fluttering curtains and light reflected off of
mirrors as passersby.
• NIGHT SET MODE (page 20.) will not go on during use of INTELLIGENT EYE operation.
“INTELLIGENT EYE” is useful for Energy Saving
■ Energy saving operation
• Change the temperature –2°C in heating / +2°C in cooling / +2°C in dry mode from set temperature.
• Decrease the airflow rate slightly in FAN mode only. If no presence detected in the room
during 20 minutes.
■ To combine “COMFORT AIRFLOW Operation” and
“INTELLIGENT EYE Operation”
• The air conditioner can go into operation with the COMFORT AIRFLOW and INTELLIGENT
EYE functions combined.
The flaps adjust the airflow direction upward (while in cooling operation) and downward
(while in heating operation), during which the sensors of the INTELLIGENT EYE are working
to detect the movement of people. When the sensors detect people, the louvers will direct
the airflow in such way that it will not be blown directly on them. If there are no people, the air
conditioner will go into energy-saving operation after 20 minutes.
CAUTION
• Do not place large objects near the sensor.
Also keep heating units or humidifiers outside the sensor’s detection area. This sensor can
detect undesirable objects.
• Do not hit or violently push the INTELLIGENT EYE sensor. This can lead to damage and malfunction.

Note for Multi System
〈〈 What is a “Multi System”? 〉〉
This system has one outdoor unit connected to
multiple indoor units.
A
room
Outdoor
unit
■ Selecting the operation mode
1. With the Priority Room Setting
present but inactive or not present.
B
room
Living
room
C
room
When more than one indoor unit is operating, priority is given to the first unit that was turned on.
In this case, set the units that are turned on later
to the same operation mode (*1) as the first unit.
Otherwise, they will enter the Standby Mode, and the operation lamp will flash; this does not indicate malfunction.
(*1)
• COOL, DRY and FAN mode may be used at the same time.
• AUTO mode automatically selects COOL mode or HEAT mode based on the room temperature.
Therefore, AUTO mode is available when selecting the same operation mode as that of the room
with the first unit to be turned on.
〈CAUTION〉
Normally, the operation mode in the room where the unit is first run is given priority, but the
following situations are exceptions, so please keep this in mind.
If the operation mode of the first room is FAN Mode, then using Heating Mode in any room after this will give priority to
heating. In this situation, the air conditioner running in FAN Mode will go on standby, and the operation lamp will flash.
2. With the Priority Room Setting active.
See “Priority Room Setting” on the next page.
■ NIGHT QUIET Mode (Available only for cooling operation)
NIGHT QUIET Mode requires initial programming during installation. Please consult your retailer or dealer for assistance.
NIGHT QUIET Mode reduces the operation noise of the outdoor unit during the night time hours to
prevent annoyance to neighbors.
• The NIGHT QUIET Mode is activated when the temperature drops 5°C or more below the highest temperature
recorded that day. Therefore, when the temperature difference is less than 5°C, this function will not be activated.
• NIGHT QUIET Mode reduces slightly the cooling (heating) efficiency of the unit.
■ OUTDOOR UNIT QUIET operation (page 18.)
1. With the Priority Room Setting present but inactive or not present.
When using the OUTDOOR UNIT QUIET operation feature with the Multi system, set all
indoor units to OUTDOOR UNIT QUIET operation using their remote controllers.
When clearing OUTDOOR UNIT QUIET operation, clear one of the operating indoor units using their remote controller.
However OUTDOOR UNIT QUIET operation display remains on the remote controller for other rooms.
We recommend you release all rooms using their remote controllers.
2. With the Priority Room Setting active.
See “Priority Room Setting” on the next page.
■ Cooling / Heating mode lock (Available only for heat pump models)
The Cooling / Heating Mode Lock requires initial programming during installation.Please consult your retailer or dealer
for assistance. The Cooling / Heating Mode Lock sets the unit forcibly to either Cooling or Heating Mode. This function
is convenient when you wish to set all indoor units connected to the Multi system to the same operation mode.

Note for Multi System
■ Priority Room Setting
The Priority Room Setting requires initial programming during installation. Please consult your
retailer or dealer for assistance.
The room designated as the Priority Room takes priority in the following situations;
1. Operation mode Priority.
As the operation mode of the Priority Room takes precedence, the user can select a different
operation mode from other rooms.
〈Example〉
* Room A is the Priority Room in the examples.
When COOL mode is selected in Room A while operating the following modes in Room B,C and D:
Operation mode in Room
B, C and D
COOL or DRY or FAN
Status of Room B, C and D when the unit in Room
A is in COOL mode
Current operation mode maintained
HEAT
The unit enters Standby Mode. Operation resumes when
the Room A unit stops operating.
AUTO
If the unit is set to COOL mode, operation continues. If set
to HEAT mode, it enters Standby Mode. Operation
resumes when the Room A unit stops operating.
2. Priority when POWERFUL operation is used.
〈Example〉
* Room A is the Priority Room in the examples.
The indoor units in Rooms A,B,C and D are all operating. If the unit in Room A enters
POWERFUL operation, operation capacity will be concentrated in Room A. In such a case,
the cooling (heating) efficiency of the units in Rooms B,C and D may be slightly reduced.
3. Priority when using OUTDOOR UNIT QUIET operation.
〈Example〉
* Room A is the Priority Room in the examples.
Just by setting the unit in Room A to QUIET operation, the air conditioner starts OUTDOOR
UNIT QUIET operation.
You don’t have to set all the operated indoor units to QUIET operation.

TROUBLE SHOOTING
Trouble Shooting
These cases are not troubles.
The following cases are not air conditioner troubles but have some reasons. You may just continue using it.
Case
Explanation
Operation does not start soon. • This is to protect the air conditioner.
You should wait for about 3 minutes.
• When ON/OFF button was pressed
soon after operation was stopped.
• When the mode was reselected.
Hot air does not flow out soon
after the start of heating
operation.
• The air conditioner is warming up. You should wait for 1 to 4 minutes.
(The system is designed to start discharging air only after it
has reached a certain temperature.)
The heating operation stops suddenly • The system is taking away the frost on the outdoor unit.
You should wait for about 4 to 12 minutes.
and a flowing sound is heard.
The outdoor unit emits water or
steam.
■ In HEAT mode
• The frost on the outdoor unit melts into water or steam
when the air conditioner is in defrost operation.
■ In COOL or DRY mode
• Moisture in the air condenses into water on the cool
surface of outdoor unit piping and drips.
Mist comes out of the indoor
unit.
■ This happens when the air in the room is cooled into mist by
the cold airflow during cooling operation.
■ This is because the air in the room is cooled by the heat
exchanger and becomes mist during defrost operation.
The indoor unit gives out odour. ■ This happens when smells of the room, furniture, or cigarettes
are absorbed into the unit and discharged with the airflow.
(If this happens, we recommend you to have the indoor unit washed by a
technician. Consult the service shop where you bought the air conditioner.)
The outdoor fan rotates while
the air conditioner is not in
operation.
■ After operation is stopped:
• The outdoor fan continues rotating for another 60 seconds
for system protection.
■ While the air conditioner is not in operation:
• When the outdoor temperature is very high, the outdoor
fan starts rotating for system protection.
The operation stopped
suddenly.
(OPERATION lamp is on.)
■ For system protection, the air conditioner may stop operating
on a sudden large voltage fluctuation.
It automatically resumes operation in about 3 minutes.

Are batteries set in the remote controller?
Is the timer setting correct?
Cooling (Heating) effect is poor. • Are the air filters clean?
• Is there anything to block the air inlet or the outlet of the
indoor and the outdoor units?
• Is the temperature setting appropriate?
• Are the windows and doors closed?
• Are the airflow rate and the air direction set appropriately?
Operation stops suddenly.
(OPERATION lamp flashes.)
• Are the air filters clean?
• Is there anything to block the air inlet or the outlet of the
indoor and the outdoor units?
Clean the air filters or take all obstacles away and turn the
breaker OFF. Then turn it ON again and try operating the air
conditioner with the remote controller. If the lamp still flashes,
call the service shop where you bought the air conditioner.
• Are operation modes all the same for indoor units connected
to outdoor units in the multi system?
If not, set all indoor units to the same operation mode and
confirm that the lamps flash.
Moreover, when the operation mode is in “AUTO”, set all
indoor unit operation modes to “COOL” or “HEAT” for a
moment and check again that the lamps are normal.
If the lamps stop flashing after the above steps, there is no
malfunction.
(page 27.)
An abnormal functioning
happens during operation.
• The air conditioner may malfunction with lightning or radio
waves. Turn the breaker OFF, turn it ON again and try
operating the air conditioner with the remote controller.
The indoor unit comes to a stop
or does not operate when the
heat pump model is selected.
• Unless the air conditioner has a heating function, the unit in cooling,
dry, or fan operation comes to a stop if the heating mode is selected.
If the heating mode is selected and the Run button is pressed while
the unit is not in operation, the unit does not start operating.
Check the specifications of the outdoor unit. If the outdoor
unit is cooling only model, set the remote controller for a
cooling only model using the cooling only/heat pump switch
on the remote controller. (page 9.)
If you are not sure about how to switch the setting, contact
the service shop where you bought the air conditioner.
The remote controller allows
selection of “heating” even
though the unit is cooling only
model.
Heating cannot be selected,
even though the unit is heat
pump model.
• Set the remote controller so that it is for a heat pump model
by using the cooling only/heat pump switch on the remote
controller. (page 9.)
If you are not sure about how to switch the setting, contact
the service shop where you bought the air conditioner.
