(Could lead to death, serious injury, etc.)
Incomplete connecting and securing could cause fire.
Do not install the unit in a place where inflammable gas
may leak.
If gas leaks and accumulates in the area around the unit, it
could cause an explosion.
Do not use intermediate connection of the power cord
or the extension cord and do not connect many devices
to one AC outlet.
It could cause a fire or an electric shock due to defective
contact, defective insulation, exceeding the permissible current, etc.
Be sure to use the parts provided or specified parts for
the installation work.
The use of defective parts could cause an injury or leakage
of water due to a fire, an electric shock, the unit falling, etc.
When plugging the power supply plug into the outlet,
make sure that there is no dust, clogging, or loose
parts in both the outlet and the plug. Make sure that the
power supply plug is pushed completely into the outlet.
If there is dust, clogging, or loose parts on the power supply plug or the outlet, it could cause electric shock or fire. If
loose parts are found on the power supply plug, replace it.
Attach the electrical cover to the indoor unit and the
service panel to the outdoor unit securely.
If the electrical cover of the indoor unit and/or the service
panel of the outdoor unit are not attached securely, it could
result in a fire or an electric shock due to dust, water, etc.
When installing, relocating, or servicing the unit, make
sure that no substance other than the specified refrigerant (R410A) enters the refrigerant circuit.
Any presence of foreign substance such as air can cause
abnormal pressure rise and may result in explosion or injury.
The use of any refrigerant other than that specified for the
system will cause mechanical failure, system malfunction, or
unit breakdown. In the worst case, this could lead to a serious impediment to securing product safety.
Do not discharge the refrigerant into the atmosphere. If
refrigerant leaks during installation, ventilate the room.
CAUTION
If refrigerant comes in contact with a fire, harmful gas could
be generated. Refrigerant leakage may cause suffocation.
Provide ventilation in accordance with EN378-1.
N Check that the refrigerant gas does not leak after installation has been completed.
If refrigerant gas leaks indoors, and comes into contact with
the flame of a fan heater, space heater, stove, etc., harmful
substances will be generated.
N Use appropriate tools and piping materials for installation.
The pressure of R410A is 1.6 times more than R22. Not using appropriate tools or materials and incomplete installation
could cause the pipes to burst or injury.
N When pumping down the refrigerant, stop the compressor before disconnecting the refrigerant pipes.
If the refrigerant pipes are disconnected while the compressor is running and the stop valve is open, air could be drawn
in and the pressure in the refrigeration cycle could become
abnormally high. This could cause the pipes to burst or injury.
N When installing the unit, securely connect the refrigerant pipes before starting the compressor.
If the compressor is started before the refrigerant pipes are
connected and when the stop valve is open, air could be
drawn in and the pressure in the refrigeration cycle could
become abnormally high. This could cause the pipes to
burst or injury.
N Fasten a flare nut with a torque wrench as specified in
this manual.
If fastened too tight, a flare nut may break after a long period and cause refrigerant leakage.

part A or turn the body when valve
core is in open position.
3) Run the vacuum pump. (Vacuumize for more than 15 minutes.)
4) Check the vacuum with gauge manifold valve, then close gauge manifold valve, and
stop the vacuum pump.
5) Leave as it is for one or two minutes. Make sure pointer gauge manifold valve remains
in the same position. Confirm that pressure gauge shows –0.101 MPa [Gauge] (–760
mmHg).
6) Remove gauge manifold valve quickly from service port of stop valve.
7) After refrigerant pipes are connected and evacuated, fully open all stop valves on both
sides of gas pipe and liquid pipe. Operating without fully opening lowers the performance and this causes trouble.
8) Refer to 1-3., and charge the prescribed amount of refrigerant if needed. Be sure to
charge slowly with liquid refrigerant. Otherwise, composition of the refrigerant in the
system may be changed and affect performance of the air conditioner.
9) Tighten cap of service port to obtain the initial status.
10) Leak test
operation switch
(E.O. SW)
Checking the remote (infrared) signal reception
Press the ON/OFF button on the remote controller (6) and check that an electronic sound
is heard from the indoor unit. Press the ON/OFF button again to turn the air conditioner
off.
• Once the compressor stops, the restart preventive device operates so the compressor
will not operate for 3 minutes to protect the air conditioner.
4-3. AUTO RESTART FUNCTION
This product is equipped with an auto restart function. When the power supply is stopped
during operation, such as during blackouts, the function automatically starts operation in
the previous setting once the power supply is resumed. (Refer to the operating instructions for details.)
Caution:
• After test run or remote signal reception check, turn off the unit with the E.O. SW or
the remote controller before turning off the power supply. Not doing so will cause the
unit to start operation automatically when power supply is resumed.
To the user
• After installing the unit, make sure to explain the user about auto restart function.
• If auto restart function is unnecessary, it can be deactivated. Consult the service
representative to deactivate the function. Refer to the service manual for details.
4-4. EXPLANATION TO THE USER
• Using the OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS, explain to the user how to use the air conditioner (how to use the remote controller, how to remove the air filters, how to remove
or put the remote controller in the remote controller holder, how to clean, precautions
for operation, etc.)
• Recommend the user to read the OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS carefully.
5. RELOCATION AND MAINTENANCE
5-1. REMOVING AND INSTALLING THE PANEL ASSEMBLY
5-3. PUMPING DOWN
When relocating or disposing of the air conditioner, pump down the system following the
procedure below so that no refrigerant is released into the atmosphere.
1) Connect the gauge manifold valve to the service port of the stop valve on the gas pipe
side of the outdoor unit.
2) Fully close the stop valve on the liquid pipe side of the outdoor unit.
3) Close the stop valve on the gas pipe side of the outdoor unit almost completely so that
it can be easily closed fully when the pressure gauge shows 0 MPa [Gauge] (0 kgf/
cm2).
4) Start the emergency COOL operation.
To start the emergency operation in COOL mode, disconnect the power supply plug
and/or turn off the breaker. After 15 seconds, connect the power supply plug and/or
turn on the breaker, and then press the E.O. SW once. (The emergency COOL
operation can be performed continuously for up to 30 minutes.)
5) Fully close the stop valve on the gas pipe side of the outdoor unit when the pressure
gauge shows 0.05 to 0 MPa [Gauge] (approx. 0.5 to 0 kgf/cm2).
6) Stop the emergency COOL operation.
Press the E.O. SW several times until all LED lamps turn off. Refer to operating instructions for details .
Removal procedure
1) Remove the 3 screws which fix the panel assembly.
2) Remove the panel assembly. Be sure to remove
its bottom end first.
Installation procedure
1) Install the panel assembly following the removal
procedure in reverse.
2) Be sure to press the positions as indicated by the
arrows in order to attach the assembly completely
to the unit.
5-2. REMOVING THE INDOOR UNIT
WARNING

plate.
When releasing the corner part, release both left and right
bottom corner part of indoor unit and pull it downward and
forward as shown in the figure on the right.
When pumping down the refrigerant, stop the compressor before disconnecting
the refrigerant pipes. The compressor may burst if air etc. get into it.
If the above method cannot be used
Remove the front panel. Then, insert hexagonal wrenches into the square holes on the
left and right sides of the unit and push them up as shown in the following figure. The bottom of the indoor unit lowers and releases the hooks.
