Annual Maintenance

It is essential that the hydrobox is serviced at least once a year by a qualifi ed individual any spare parts required MUST be purchased from Mitsubishi Electric (safety
NEVER bypass safety devices or operate the unit without them being fully operational.
<Draining the hydrobox>
1. Before attempting to drain the hydrobox isolate from the electrical supply to prevent booster heater burning out.
2. Isolate hydrobox from primary water circuit and drain water from hydrobox. Use a suitable heat resistant hose to assist in these operations.
3. Drain any remaining water from booster heater using fi tted drain cock and hose to safely drain the unit.
4. After the hydrobox is drained, water remains in the following component parts. Drain water completely by checking the inside of the parts.
• Strainer (Remove the strainer cover.)
• Pressure relief valve (Operate the valve.)
<Annual maintenance points>
Use the Annual Maintenance Log Book as a guide to carrying out the necessary checks on the hydrobox and outdoor unit.
Possible cause
When the water in the circulation circuit is un-
duly hot, Cooling mode starts with a delay for
the protection of the outdoor unit.
When the outdoor ambient temperature is
lower than the preset temperature that acti-
vates the freeze stat. function, Cooling mode
does not start running.
Explanation - Solution
• Normal operation.
• After the DHW max. operation time has elapsed or the DHW max. temperature
has been reached, the DHW mode switches to the other mode (ex. Heating
Turn Dip SW2-4 to ON. (Refer to "6-9 Dip switch settings" in this manual.)
Normal operation.
To run Cooling mode overriding the freeze stat. function, adjust the preset
temperature that activates the freeze stat. function.
(Refer to "<Freeze stat function>" on Page 37.)
Adjust the setting time period of Heat-pump only operation. (Refer to "<Electric
heater (DHW)> on Page 36.
Do not run Cooling operation when the outdoor ambient temperature is lower
than 10ºC.
To automatically stop or recover only Cooling operation and keep other opera-
tions running, the freeze stat. function can be used. Set the preset temperature
that activates the freeze stat. function to adjust the outdoor ambient temperature
as follows. (Refer to "<Freeze stat function>" on Page 37.)
Outdoor ambient temperature
3ºC higher than the preset temperature
5ºC higher than the preset temperature
