Clean the air freshening filter at least once a month,
and replace it every 4-5 months.
Clean it with vacuum cleaner, then dry it in cool place.

inside of the unit.
The outdoor unit requires periodic maintenance
and cleaning. Do not attempt to do this yourself.
Contact your dealer or service provider.
Check that the wiring is not broken off or disconnected.
Clean the indoor unit and filters.
Check that the air filter is installed.
Check if the air outlet or inlet is blocked after the
air conditioner has not been used for a long time.
Do not touch the metal parts of the unit when
removing the filter. Injuries can occur when
handling sharp metal edges.
Do not use water to clean inside the air conditioner.
Exposure to water can destroy the insulation,
leading to possible electric shock.
When cleaning the unit, first make sure that the
power and circuit breaker are turned off.
Do not wash air filter with hot water at more than

it in the shade. Do not expose it directly to the sun,
it may shrink.
Normal function of the air conditioner
The following events may occur during normal operation.
1. Protection of the air conditioner.
The compressor can't restart for 3-4 minutes after it stops.
Anti-cold air (Cooling and heating models only)
The unit is designed not to blow cold air on HEAT mode, when the indoor heat exchanger is in
one of the following three situations and the set temperature has not been reached.
A) When heating has just started.
C) Low temperature heating.
The indoor or outdoor fan stop running when defrosting (Cooling and heating models only).
Defrosting (Cooling and heating models only)
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 to defrost may vary from 4 to 10 minutes according to the outdoor temperature and
the amount of frost built up on the outdoor unit.
2. 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
on COOL mode in an indoor environment that has a 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.
3. Low noise of the air conditioner
You may hear a low hissing sound when the compressor is running or has just stopped running.
It is the sound of the refrigerant flowing or coming to a stop.
You can also hear a low "squeak" 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 restoring to its original position when power is turned on.
4. 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.
5. A peculiar smell comes out from the indoor unit.
This is caused by the indoor unit giving off smells permeated from building material, from furniture,
6. The air conditioner turns to FAN only mode from COOL or HEAT (For cooling and
heating models only) 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 on COOL mode or falls on HEAT mode (For cooling and heating
models only) to the set point.
