21 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.
