(5) TEMPERATURES buttons
In “I FEEL CONTROL” (
) mode, set temperature is decided by the microprocessor based on the room temperature.
In addition, set temperature can be controlled by TOO WARM or TOO COOL buttons when you feel too cool or too warm.
Each time the TOO WARM or TOO COOL button is pressed,the indoor unit receives the signal and emits a beep tone.
• Fuzzy control
When the TOO COOL or TOO WARM button is pressed, the microprocessor changes the set temperature, considering
the room temperature, the frequency of pressing TOO COOL or TOO WARM button and the user’s preference to heat or
cool. So this is called “Fuzzy control”, and works only in “I FEEL CONTROL” mode.
In DRY mode of “I FEEL CONTROL”, the set temperature doesn’t change.

2. Coil frost prevention
① Temperature control
When the indoor coil thermistor RT12 reads 3°C or below, the coil frost prevention mode starts immediately.
However, the coil frost prevention doesn’t work for 5 minutes since the compressor has started.
The indoor fan operates at the set speed and the compressor stops for 5 minutes.
After that, if RT12 still reads below 3°C this mode prolonged until the RT12 reads over 3°C.
11
② Time control
When the three conditions as follows have been satisfied for 1 hour and 45 minutes, compressor stops for 3 minutes.
a. Compressor has been continuously operating.
b. Indoor fan speed is Lo or Me.
c. Room temperature is below 26°C.
When compressor stops, the accumulated time is cancelled and when compressor restarts, time counting starts from the
beginning.
Time counting also stops temporarily when the indoor fan speed becomes Hi or the room temperature exceeds
26°C.However, when two of the above conditions (b.and c.) are satisfied again.Time accumulation is resumed.

Indoor fan
—DRY mode of “I FEEL CONTROL”—
The system for dry operation uses the same refrigerant circuit as the cooling circuit.
The compressor and the indoor fan are controlled by the room temperature.
By such controls, indoor flow amounts will be reduced in order to lower humidity without much room temperature
decrease.
1. Indoor fan speed control
Indoor fan operates at the set speed by FAN SPEED CONTROL button.
However, in AUTO fan operation, fan speed becomes Lo.
2. The operation of the compressor and indoor/ outdoor fan
Compressor operates by room temperature control and time control.
Set temperature is controlled to fall 2°C from initial room temperature.
Indoor fan and outdoor fan operate in the same cycle as the compressor.
•When the room temperature is 23°C or over:
When the thermostat is ON, the compressor repeats 8 minutes ON and 3 minutes OFF.
When the thermostat is OFF, the compressor repeats 4 minutes OFF and 1 minute ON.
•When the room temperature is under 23°C.
When the thermostat is ON, the compressor repeats 2 minutes ON and 3 minutes OFF.
When the thermostat is OFF, the compressor repeats 4 minutes OFF and 1 minute ON.

3. Coil frost prevention
• The operation is as same as coil frost prevention during COOL mode of “I FEEL CONTROL”.
• Indoor fan operates at the set speed and the compressor stops for 5 minutes, because protection(Coil frost
prevention) has the priority.
However, when coil frost prevention works while the compressor is not operating, it’s speed becomes Lo.

(2) Cold air prevention control
The fan runs at set speed when the indoor coil thermistor RT12 temperature exceeds 22°C. The fan operates at VLo
when the temperature of indoor coil thermistor RT12 is below 18°C. But the fan stops when the indoor fan operates at
VLo and the room temperature is 15°C or less.

(3) Warm air control.
When compressor starts in heating operation or after defrosting, the fan changes the speed due to the indoor coil
thermistor RT12 temperature to blow out warm air.
After releasing of cold air prevention, when the indoor coil temperature is 37°C or above, the fan speed shifts to the set
speed, and when the fan speed is changed by the remote controller, the fan speed is the set speed.
When the indoor coil temperature is less than 37°C, the fan speed is controlled by time as below.
<Time condition>
<Indoor fan speed>
less than 2 minutes ························Lo
2 minutes to 4 minutes···················Me
4 minutes or more ··························Hi
The upper limit of the fan speed is the set speed.
If the thermostat turns off, this operation changes to flow soft control.
(4) Flow soft control
After the thermostat turns off, the indoor fan operates at VLo.
NOTE : When the thermostat turns on, the fan operates at the set speed. Due to the cold air prevention control, the fan
does not start at set speed until the indoor coil thermistor RT12 reads 22°C or more.
2. High pressure protection
During heating operation, the outdoor fan motor is controlled by the temperature of indoor coil thermistor RT12 for excess
rise protection of compressor discharge pressure.

8-5. FAN MOTOR CONTROL
(1) Rotational frequency feedback control
The indoor fan motor is equipped with a rotational frequency sensor, and outputs signal to the microprocessor to feed
back the rotational frequency. Comparing the current rotational frequency with the target rotational frequency
(Hi,Me,Lo,SLEEP), the microprocessor controls IC141 and adjusts fan motor electric current to make the current
rotational frequency close to the target rotational frequency. With this control, when the fan speed is switched, the
rotational frequency changes smoothly.
SLEEP
(2) Fan motor lock-up protection
When the rotational frequency feedback signal has not output for 12 seconds, (or when the microprocessor cannot
detect the signal for 12 seconds) the fan motor is regarded locked-up. Then the electric current to the fan motor is shut
off. 3 minutes later, the electric current is applied to the fan motor again. During the fan motor lock-up, the Operation
Indicator lamp flashes on and off to show the fan motor abnormality. (See page 23.)
8-6. AUTO VANE OPERATION

9-4. P.C. BOARD MODIFICATION FOR INDIVIDUAL OPERATION
A maximum of 4 indoor units with wireless remote controllers can be used in a room.
In this case, to operate each indoor unit individually by each remote controller, P.C. boards of remote controller must be
modified according to the number of the indoor unit.
How to modify the remote controller P.C. board
Remove batteries before modification.
The board has a print as shown below :
NOTE : For remodelling, take out
the batteries at first.
After finish remodelling, put
back the batteries then
push the RESET button.
The P.C.board has the print “J1” and “J2”.Jumper wires are mounted to each “J1” and “J2”.Cut J1 and J2 according to the
number of indoor unit as shown in Table. 1.
After modification, push the reset button.

NOTE : At power supply failure or installation, indoor unit deletes the memory about remote controller. When
the power supply is turned on and indoor unit receives the first signals from the remote controller, the
remote controller number is designated as the indoor unit number. Therefore at and after the second
time indoor unit accepts the remote controller of the initial setting number.
At setting - error, turn the power supply off to cancel the individual operation and then turn the power
supply on to restart the setting.

9-5. AUTO RESTART FUNCTION
When the indoor unit is controlled with the remote controller, the operation mode, set temperature, and the fan speed are
memorized by the indoor electronic control P.C.board. The “AUTO RESTART FUNCTION” sets to work the moment power
has restored after power failure.Then, the unit will restart automatically. However if the unit is operated in “I FEEL
CONTROL” mode before power failure, the operation is not memorized. In “I FEEL CONTROL” mode, the operation is
decided by the initial room temperature.
How to set “AUTO RESTART FUNCTION”
1Turn off the main power for the unit.
2Remove the electronic control P.C. board and the display P.C.board. (See page 30.)

Operation
1If the main power (220/240V AC) has been cut, the operation settings remain.
2After the power is restored, the unit restarts automatically according to the memory.(However, it takes at least 3 minutes
for the compressor to start running.)
NOTE
•The operation settings are memorized when 10 seconds have passed after the remote controller was operated.
•If main power is turned off or a power failure occurs while AUTO START/STOP timer is active ,the timer setting is
cancelled.
•If the unit has been off with the remote controller before power failure, the auto restart function does not work as the
power button of the remote controller is off.
•To prevent breaker off due to the rush of starting current, systematize other home appliances not to turn on at the same
time.
•When some air conditioners are connected to the same supply system, if they are operated before power failure, the
starting current of all the compressors may flow simultaneously at restart.
Therefore, the special counter-measures are required to prevent the main voltage-drop or the rush of the starting current
by adding to the system that allows the units to start one by one.
