Maintenance and Service Indoor Unit Before performing any maintenance, turn off the main power to the system, disconnect the circuit breaker and unplug the power cord.
Maintenance and Service Outdoor Unit The heat exchanger coils and panel vents of the outdoor unit should be checked regularly. If clogged with dirt or soot, the heat exchanger and panel vents may be professionally steam cleaned. Dirty or clogged coils will reduce the operating efficiency of the system and cause higher operating costs. NOTE Operation Tips! Self-Diagnosis Function Error Display LED (once) 2 sec 2 sec 2 sec This unit has an inbuilt error diagnosis capability. Unit LED will blink in case if thermistor fails. Please contact your serviceman/dealer in such a situation Do not overcool the room. This is not good for the health and wastes electricity. Keep blinds or curtains closed. Do not let direct sunshine enter the room when the air conditioner is in operation. Keep the room temperature uniform. Adjust the vertical and horizontal airflow direction to ensure a uniform temperature in the room. Make sure that the doors and windows are shut thight. Avoid opening doors and windows as much as possible to keep the cool air in the room. Clean the air filter regularly. Blockages in the air filter reduce the airflow and lower cooling and dehumidifying effects. Clean at least once every two weeks. Ventilate the room occasionally. Since windows are kept closed, it is a good idea to open them and ventilate the room now and ten. Use high fan speed for effective and fast cooling. The unit gives its rated cooling capacity when the fan speed is high. 20 Air Conditioner
Maintenance and Service Troubleshooting Tips! Save time and money! The air conditioner may be operating abnormally when: Problem ■ The air conditioner is unplugged. ■ The fuse is blown/circuit breaker is tripped. ■ Power failure. ■ High voltage. ■ Airflow is restricted. ■ The air filter is dirty. ■ The room may have been hot. ■ Cold air is escaping. ■ Check the temperature settings. ■ There might be any heating source in the room. Air conditioner does not start Air conditioner does not cool as it should • Make sure the air conditioner plug is pushed completely into the outlet. • Check the house fuse/circuit breaker box and replace the fuse or reset the breaker. • If power failure occurs, turn the mode control to OFF. When power is restored, wait 3 minutes to restart the air conditioner to prevent tripping of the compressor overload. • If the voltage is unusually very high or low the circuit Breaker will trip. • Make sure there are no curtains, blinds, or furniture blocking the front of the air conditioner. • Clean the filter at least every 2 weeks. See the Maintenance and Service section. • When the air conditioner is first turned on, you need to allow time for the room to cool down. • Check for open furnace floor registers and cold air returns. • Make sure they are correct. • Check and remove such source or turn it off while using the air conditioner. What To Do Possible Causes 1. Anything abnormal such as burning smell, loud noise etc. happen. Stop the unit and turn the breaker off. Never try to repair by yourself or restart the system in such cases. 2. Main power cord is too hot or damaged. 3. Error code is generated by self diagnosis. 4. Water leaks from indoor unit even if the humidity is low. 5. Any switch, breaker (safety, earth) or fuse fails to work properly User must carry routine checkup & cleaning to avoid unitʼs poor performance. In case of special situation, the job must be carried out by service person only. Call the service immediately in the following situations ENGLISH Owner's Manual 21
