Installation
Do not install the air conditioner on an unstable surface or in a
place where there is danger of it falling.
Contact an authorized service center when installing or relocating
the air conditioner.
Install the panel and the cover of the control box safely.
Do not install the air conditioner in a place where flammable
liquids or gases such as gasoline, propane, paint thinner, etc., are
stored.
Make sure that the pipe and the power cable connecting the
indoor and outdoor units are not pulled too tight when installing
the air conditioner.
Use standard circuit breaker and fuse that conform to the rating of
the air conditioner.
Do not input air or gas into the system except with the specific
refrigerant.
Use non-flammable gas (nitrogen) to check for leak and to purge
air; using compressed air or flammable gas may cause fire or
explosion.
The indoor/outdoor wiring connections must be secured tightly,
and the cable should be routed properly so that there is no force
pulling the cable from the connection terminals. Improper or loose
connections can cause heat generation or fire.
4
EN
Install dedicated electric outlet and circuit breaker before using the
air conditioner.
Do not connect the ground wire to a gas pipe, a lightning rod, or a
telephone ground wire.
Operation
Be sure to use only those parts listed in the service parts list.
Never attempt to modify the equipment.
Make sure that children do not climb on or hit the outdoor unit.
Dispose of the batteries in a place where there is no danger of
fire.
Use only the refrigerant specified on the air conditioner label.
Cut off the power supply if there is any noise, smell, or smoke
coming from the air conditioner.
Do not leave flammable substances such as gasoline, benzene, or
thinner near the air conditioner.
Contact an authorized service center when the air conditioner is
submerged by flood waters.
Do not use the air conditioner for an extended period of time in a
small place without proper ventilation.
In the event of a gas leak (such as Freon, propane gas, LP gas,
etc.) ventilate sufficiently before using the air conditioner again.
To clean the interior, contact an authorized service center or
dealer. Using harsh detergents may cause corrosion or damage to
the unit.
Be sure to ventilate sufficiently when the air conditioner and a
heating appliance such as a heater are used simultaneously.
5
EN
Do not block the inlet or outlet of air flow.
Do not insert hands or other objects through the air inlet or outlet

Do not place any objects on the power cable.
Do not place a heater or other heating appliances near the power
cable.
Do not modify or extend the power cable. Scratches or peeling
insulation on the power cables may result in fire or electric shock,
and should be replaced.
Cut off the power supply immediately in the event of a blackout or
a thunderstorm.
Take care to ensure that power cable could not be pulled out or
damaged during operation.
Do not touch refrigerant pipe, water pipe and any internal parts
