TIPS FOR SAVING ENERGY
• Do not install the product at a place that ther is concern of falling down.
- Otherwise, it may result in personal injury.
• Use caution when unpacking and installing.
- Sharp edges may cause injury.
• For R410A model, use piping, flare nut and tools which is specified for R410A refrigerant.
- Using of (R22) piping, flare nut and tools may cause abnormally high pressure in the
refrigerant cycle(piping), and possibly result in explosion and injury.
• It is desirable that the amount of residual oil less than 40 mg/10 m.
• Do not turn on the breaker or power under condition that front panel, cabinet, top
cover, control box cover are removed or opened.
- Otherwise, it may cause fire, electric shock, explosion or death.
Here are some tips that will help you to minimize the power consumption when you use

saddle or equivalent.
Finishing the Job
- With a service valve wrench, turn the
valve of liquid side counter-clockwise to
fully open the valve
- Turn the valve of gas side counter clockwise
to fully open the valve
- Loosen the charge hose connected to the
gas side service port slightly to release the
pressure, and then remove the hose.
- Replace the flare nut and its bonnet on the
gas side service port and fasten the flare
nut securely with an adjustable wrench.
This process is very important to prevent
leakage from the system.
- Replace the valve caps at both gas and
liquid side service valves and fasten them
tight. This completes air purging with a
vacuum pump.

- Cooling (or heating) efficiency drops.
- Moisture in the refrigerant circuit may
freeze and block capillary tubing.
- Water may lead to corrosion of parts
in the refrigeration system.
Therefore, after evacuating the system,
take a leak test for the piping and tubing
between the indoor and outdoor unit.

3. Push down hooks to assemble the air
filter.
This is performed when the unit is relocated
or the refrigerant circuit is serviced. Pump
Down means collecting all refrigerant into the
outdoor unit without the loss of refrigerant.
Ditch
- Do a leak test of all joints of the tubing
(both indoor and outdoor) and both gas
and liquid side service valves. Bubbles
indicate a leak. Be sure to wipe off the
soap with a clean cloth.
- After the system is found to be free of
leaks, relieve the nitrogen pressure by
loosening the charge hose connector at
the nitrogen cylinder. When the system
pressure is reduced to normal, disconnect the hose from the cylinder.
- Remove the caps from the 2-way and
3-way valves.
- Remove the service-port cap from the
3-way valve.
- Apply a soap water or a liquid neutral detergent on the indoor unit connection or outdoor unit connections by a soft brush to
check for leakage of the connecting points
of the piping.
- If bubbles come out, the pipes have leakage
- When the desired vacuum is reached,
close the knob of the 3-way valve and
stop the vacuum pump.

NOTE
lf the air filter is not assembled correctly,
Dust and other substance come into the
indoor unit. lf look at the indoor unit from
higher than it, can assemble the air filter
easily.
3 Hold the knob of the air filter, lift it up
slightly and remove it from the unit.
Discharge
temperature
To ensure the outdoor unit operates properly, certain measures are required in
locations where there is a possibility of
heavy snowfall or severe wind chill or
cold :
1. Prepare for severe winter wind chills
and heavy snowfall, even in areas of the
country where these are unusual phenomena.
2. Position the outdoor unit so that its
airflow fans are not buried by direct,
heavy snowfall.
If snow piles up and blocks the airflow,
the system may malfunction.
3. Remove any snow that has accumulated 100 mm or more on the top of
the outdoor unit.
4. Place the outdoor unit on a raised
platform at least 500 mm higher than
the aver- age annual snowfall for the
area. If the frame width is wider than
the outdoor unit, snow may accumulate.
5. Install a snow protection hood.
6. To prevent snow and heavy rain from
entering the outdoor unit, install the
suction and discharge ducts facing away
from direct winds.
7. Additionally, the following conditions
should be taken into consideration when
the unit operates in defrost mode:
- If the outdoor unit is installed in a
highly humid environment (near an ocean,
lake, etc.), ensure that the site is wellventilated and has a lot of natural light.
(Example: Install on a rooftop.)
*The feature can be changed according
a type of model..
Pump Down Procedure
- Connect a low-pressure gauge manifold
hose to the charge port on the gas side
service valve.
- Open the gas side service valve halfway
and purge the air in the manifold hose using
the refrigerant.
- Close the liquid side service valve (all the way).
- Turn on the unit's operating switch and
start the cooling operation.
- When the low-pressure gauge reading
becomes 1 to 0.5 kg/cm 2 G (14.2 to 7.1
P.S.I.G.), Fully close the gas side valve and then
quickly turn off the unit. Now pump down
procedure is completed, and all refrigerant
is collected into the outdoor unit.
Test running
- Check that all tubing and wiring are properly
connected.
- Check that the gas and liquid side service
valves are fully open.

Assembly & Disassembly
• Air conditioners should not be installed
in areas where corrosive gases, such as
acid or alkaline gas, are produced.
• Do not install the product where it could
be exposed to sea wind (salty wind)
directly. It can result corrosion on the
product. Corrosion, particularly on the
condenser and evaporator fins, could
cause product malfunction or inefficient
performance.
• If outdoor unit is installed close to the
seaside, it should avoid direct exposure
to the sea wind. Otherwise it needs
additional anticorrosion treatment on
the heat exchanger.
SELECTING THE LOCATION
(OUTDOOR UNIT)
Disassemble the decor
1. Turn off the power and unplug the
power cord.
2. Pull the decor at the bottom of the
indoor unit.
If the outdoor unit is to be installed close
to the seaside, direct exposure to the sea
wind should be avoided. Install the outdoor
unit on the opposite side of the sea wind
direction.
Sea wind
2. Insert the new batteries and make sure
that the + and - terminals of the batteries
are installed correctly.
In case, to install the outdoor unit on the
seaside, set up a windbreak not to be
exposed to the sea wind.
wind break
Sea wind
- It should be strong enough like concrete to
prevent the sea wind from the sea.
- The height and width should be more than
150% of the outdoor unit.
- More than 70 cm (s) of space should be
kept between outdoor unit and windbreak
for easy air flow.
Select a well-drained place.
!
NOTE
• If you can’t meet above guide line in the
seaside installation, please contact LG
Electronics for the additional anticorrosion.
• Periodic ( more than once/year ) cleaning
of the dust or salt particles stuck on the
heat exchanger by using water
• Do not use seawater when you clean
up the heat exchanger.
3. Remove the decor from the indoor
unit.
