How to use the indoor unit

Adjusting air flow direction

Adjust the air flow direction properly, otherwise it might cause discomfort or uneven room temperatures. Adjust the vertical louver using the remote controller. Adjust the horizontal louver manually.

To set the horizontal air flow direction (left/ right)

Adjust the horizontal louver manually using the lever on the left or right side of the vertical louver arm (Depending on the specific model you choose), or move the lever at the left (or right, or middle which is only for 21400-

36000 Btu's, depending on the specific model you choose) end of the air outlet to the desired position.

Perform these adjustments before you start the unit because once it has been started, there is risk of your fingers getting caught on the fan.

To automatically swing the air flow direction (up/down)

Perform this function while the air conditioner is in operation.

Press the " " button on the remote controller.

To stop the function, press the " " button again.

Press " " to lock louver in desired position.

17

How to use the indoor unit

Lever

The" " button will be disabled when the air conditioner is not in operation

(including when the TIMER ON is set).

Do not operate the air conditioner for long periods with the air flow direction set downward in cooling or dry mode. Otherwise, condensation may occur on the surface of the horizontal louver and drop on to the floor or on furnishings.

Do not move the horizontal louver manually. Always use the " " button.

If youmove this louver manually, it may malfunction during operation.

If the louver malfunctions, stop the airconditioner and restart it.

Open angle of the horizontal louver should not be set too small, as COOLING or HEATING (only for models with heating function) performance may be impaired due to too restricted air flow area.

Do not operate unit with horizontal louver in closed position.

When the air conditioner is connected to power (initial operation), the horizontal louver may generate a sound for 10 seconds, this is a normal operation.

How to use the indoor unit

18

Manual operation (without remote control)

Manual operation can be used temporarily in case you can not find the remote controller or its batteries are exhausted.

1. Open and lift the front panel up to an angle until it remains fixed with a clicking sound.

2. One press of the manual control button will lead to the forced AUTO operation.

3. Close the panel firmly to its original position.

19

Manual operation

Maintenance

Cleaning the indoor unit and remote controller.

1. It is necessary to stop the air conditioner and disconnect the power supply before cleaning.

2. Use a dry cloth to wipe the indoor unit and remote controller.

3. A cloth dampened with cold water may be used on the indoor unit if it is very dirty.

4. The front panel of the indoor unit can be removed and cleaned with water.

Then wipe it with a dry cloth.

5. Do not use a chemically treated cloth or duster to clean the unit.

6. Do not use benzine, thinner, polishing powder, or similar solvents for cleaning. These may cause the plastic surface to crack or deform.

Cleaning the air filter

A clogged air filter reduces the cooling efficiency of this unit. Please clean the filter once every 2 weeks.

1. Lift the indoor unit panel up to an angle until it stops with a clicking sound.

2. Grab the handle of the air filter and lift it up slightly to take it out from the filter holder, then pull it downwards.

3. Remove the air filter (Fresh air filter if so equipped + support frame) from the unit.

Maintenance

20

Maintenance

If you plan to idle the unit for a long time, perform the following:

1. Operate in fan mode for about half a day to dry the inside of the unit.

2. Stop the air conditioner and disconnect power. Remove the batteries from the remote controller.

3. The outdoor unit requires periodic maintenance and cleaning. Do not attempt to do this yourself. Contact your dealer or servicer.

If you plan to idle the unit for a long time, perform the following:

1. Check that the wiring is not broken or disconnected.

2. Check that the air filter is installed.

3. Check whether the air outlet or inlet is blocked after the air conditioner has not been used for a long time.

Maintenance

Operation tips

The following events may occur during normal operation.

Protection of the air conditioner.

Compressor protection

This unit comes with a time delay function to help protect the compressor,please allow 3 minutes for the compressor to restart upon turning on the unit.

Anti-cold air (Only for models with heating function)

The unit is designed not to blow cold air in HEAT mode when the indoor heat exchanger is in one of the following three situations and the set temperature has not been reached.

1. When heating has just starting.

2. Defrosting.

3. Low temperature heating.

Defrosting (Only for models with heating function)

Frost may be generated on the outdoor unit during heat cycle when outdoor temperature is low and humidity is high resulting in lower heating efficiency of the air conditioner. During this condition, air conditioner will stop heating operation and start defrosting automatically.

The time of defrosting may vary from 0 to 8 minutes according to the outdoor temperature and the amount of frost buildup on the outdoor unit.

The indoor or outdoor fan will stop running when defrosting (Only for models with heating function).

The indoor unit will display "H1" code when defrosting, it's normal.

A white mist coming out from the indoor unit

A white mist may generate due to a large temperature difference between air inlet and air outlet in COOL mode in an indoor environment that has high relative humidity.

A white mist may generate due to moisture generated from defrosting process when the air conditioner restarts in HEAT mode operation after defrosting.

Low noise of the air conditioner

You may hear a low hissing sound when the compressor is running or has just stopped running. This sound is the sound of the refrigerant flowing or coming to stop.

You can also hear a craching sound when the compressor is running or has just stopped running. This is caused by heat expansion and cold contraction of the plastic parts in the unit when the temperature is changing.

A noise may be heard due to louver returning to its original position when power is first turned on.

Operation tips

22

Dust is blown out from the indoor unit.

This is a normal condition when the air conditioner has not been used for a long time or during first use of the unit.

A peculiar smell comes out from the indoor unit.

This is because the indoor unit gives off smells permeated from building material, furniture or smoke.

The air conditioner turns to FAN only mode from COOL or HEAT

(Only for models with heating function) mode.

When indoor temperature reaches the temperature setting on air conditioner, the compressor will stop automatically, and the air conditioner turns to FAN only mode. The compressor will start again when the indoor temperature rises in

COOL mode or falls in HEAT mode (Only for models with heating function) to the set point.

Dripping water condenses on the surface of indoor unit

Dripping water may generate on the surface of the indoor unit when cooling in a high relatively humidity (relative humidity higher than 80%). Adjust the horizontal louver to the maximum air outlet position and select HIGH fan speed.

Heating mode (Only for models with heating function)

The air conditioner draws in heat from the outdoor unit and releases it via the indoor unit during heating operation. When the outdoor temperature falls, heat drawn in by the air conditioner decreases accordingly. At the same time, heat loading of the air conditioner increases due to larger difference between indoor and outdoor temperature. If a comfortable temperature can't be achieved by the air conditioner, we suggest you use a supplementary heating device.

Auto-restart function

Power failure during operation will stop the unit completely.

For the unit without Auto-restart feature, when the power restores, the

OPERATION indicator on the indoor unit starts illuminating. To restart the operation,press the ON/OFF button on the remote controller. For the unit with

Auto-restart feature, when the power restores, the unit restarts automatically with all the previous settings preserved by the memory function.

Lightning or a wireless telephone operating nearby may cause the unit to malfunction.

Disconnect the unit with power and then re-connect the unit with power again.

Push the ON/OFF button on the remote controller to restart operation.
