Maintenance and Service
When the air conditioner is not going to be used for a long time.
When the air conditioner is to be used again.
Operate the air conditioner at the
following settings for 2 to 3 hours.
• Type of operation: Fan operation mode.
• This will dry out the internal mechanisms.
Turn off the breaker.
Clean the air filter and install it in the
indoor unit.
(Refer to page 10 for cleaning it.)
Check that the air inlet and outlet of the
indoor/outdoor unit are not blocked.
CAUTION

is not going to be used for a long time.
Dirt may collect and may cause a fire.
Check that the ground wire is
connected correctly. It may be connect
to the indoor unit side.
Helpful information
The air filters and your electiric bill.
If the air filters become clogged with dust, the
cooling capacity will drop, and 6% of the electricity
used to operate the air conditioner will be wasted.
Operation Tips
Do not overcool the room.
Keep blinds or curtains
closed.
Keep the room temperature
uniform.
This is not good for the health
and wastes electricity.
Do not let direct sunshine
enter the room when the air
conditioner is in operation.
Adjust the vertical and
horizontal airflow direction to
ensure a uniform temperature
in the room.
Make sure that the doors
and windows are shut tight.
Clean the air filter regularly.
Ventilate the room
occasionally.
Avoid opening doors and
windows as much as possible
to keep the cool air in the
room.
Blockages in the air filter
reduce the airflow and lower
cooling and dehumidifying
effects. Clean at least once
every two weeks.
Since windows are kept
closed, it is a good idea to
open them and ventilate the
room now and then.
