Select the best Location
1. There should not be any heat or steam near
the unit.
2. Select a place where there are no obstacles
around the unit.
3. Make sure that condensation drainage can
be conveniently routed away.
4. Do not install near a doorway.
5. Ensure that the interval between a wall and
the left (or right) of the unit is more than
100mm. The unit should be installed as high
as possible on the wall, allowing a minimum
of 200mm from ceiling.
6. Use a metal detector to locate studs to
prevent unnecessary damage to the wall.

Fixing Installation Plate
1. Mount the installation plate on the wall
with
type "A" screws. If mounting the unit on a
concrete wall, use anchor bolts.
• Mount the installation plate horizontally by
aligning the centerline using a level.

The wall you select should be strong and
solid enough to prevent vibration

2. Measure the wall and mark the centerline.
It is also important to use caution
concerning the location of the installation
plate-routing of the wiring to power outlets
is through the walls typically. Drilling the
hole through the wall for piping
connections must be done safely.

Installation
Flaring Work
Main cause for gas leakage is due to defect of flaring work. Carry out correct flaring work in the
following procedure.
Cut the pipes and the cable.
1. Use the piping kit accessory or the pipes
purchased locally.
2. Measure the distance between the indoor and
the outdoor unit.
Copper
pipe
Slanted Uneven Rough
90
3. Cut the pipes a little longer than measured
distance.
4. Cut the cable 1.5m longer than the pipe length.
Burrs removal
Pipe
1. Completely remove all burrs from the cut cross
section of pipe/tube.
Reamer
2. While removing burrs put the end of the copper
tube/pipe in a downward direction while
removing burrs location is also changed in
order to avoid dropping burrs into the tubing.

Connecting the Piping
Indoor
1. Prepare the indoor unit's piping and drain hose
for installation through the wall.
2. Remove the plastic tubing retainer(see the
illustration by) and pull the tubing and drain
hose away from chassis.
3. Replace only the plastic tubing holder 1, not
the holder 2 in the original position.
For right rear piping
1. Route the indoor tubing and the drain hose in
the direction of rear right.
2. Insert the connecting cable into the indoor unit
from the outdoor unit through the piping hole.
• Do not connect the cable to the indoor unit.
• Make a small loop with the cable for easy
connection later.
Drain hose
3. Tape the tubing, drain hose, and the
connecting cable. Be sure that the drain hose
is located at the lowest side of the bundle.
Locating at the uper side can cause drain
pan to overflow inside the unit.
If the drain hose is routed inside the room,
insulate the hose with an insulation material*
so that dripping from "sweating"(condensation)
will not damage furniture or floors.
*Foamed polyethylene or equivalent is
recommended.
