When Connecting Refrigerant Tubing
• Keep all tubing runs as short as possible.
• Use the brazing method for connecting tubing.
• Apply refrigeration compressor oil (or equivalent) used for the outdoor unit to the
matching surfaces of the fl are and union tubes before connecting them, then tighten
the nut with a torque wrench for a leak free connection.
• Check carefully for leaks before starting the test run.
When Servicing...
• Turn the power OFF at the main circuit breaker panel before opening the unit to
check or repair electrical parts and wiring.
• Keep your fi ngers and clothing away from any moving parts.
• Clean up the site after you fi nish, remembering to check that no metal scraps or bits
of wiring have been left inside the unit being serviced.
• After installing the unit, perform a test run to make sure the unit operates normally.
Then, explain to the customer how to operate and maintain the unit.
• Please pass this Installation manual together with the Operating manual to the cus-
Please ask the customer to keep the Operating manual and Installation manual at
hand for future reference during the moving or repair of the main unit.
For installation purposes, be sure to use the parts supplied by the manufacturer or other
prescribed parts.
Using non-specifi ed parts will cause serious accidents such as falling unit, refrigerant
leakage, water leakage, electric shock, and fi re.
To install a unit that uses the R410A refrigerant, use dedicated tools and piping materials
that have been manufactured specifi cally for R410A use.
Because the pressure of the R410A refrigerant is approximately 1.6 times higher than
the R22, failure to use dedicated piping material or improper installation can cause rup-
ture or injury.
It will also cause serious accidents such as refrigerant leakage, water leakage, electric
shock, and fi re.
Do not introduce any substance other than the prescribed refrigerant into the refrigera-
tion cycle.
If air enters the refrigeration cycle, the pressure in the refrigeration cycle will become
abnormally high and cause the piping to rupture.
Ensure that the outdoor unit is securely installed at a place that can withstand the weight
of the unit.
Improper installation will cause injuries caused by falling unit.
If there is a refrigerant leakage, make sure that it does not exceed the concentration
If a refrigerant leakage exceeds the concentration limit, it can lead to accidents such as
oxygen starvation.
If a refrigerant leakage occurs during operation, immediately vacate the premises and
thoroughly ventilate the area.
If the refrigerant is exposed to fi re, it will create a hazardous gas.
Electrical work must be performed in accordance with this Installation manual by a per-
son certifi ed under the national or regional regulations. Be sure to use a dedicated circuit
for the unit.
For wiring, use the prescribed type of cables, connect them securely, making sure that
there are no external forces of the cables applied to the terminal connections.
Improperly connected or secured cables can cause serious accidents such as overheat-
ing the terminals, electric shock, or fi re.
Do not turn ON the power until all work has been completed.
After the installation, make sure there is no refrigerant leakage.
If the refrigerant leaks into the room and becomes exposed to a source of fi re such as a
fan heater, stove, or burner, it will create a hazardous gas.
Use a wall hole pipe. Otherwise, it may cause a short circuit.
Do not place the outdoor unit near the handrail of the balcony.
Children may climb onto the outdoor unit, lean over the handrail and fall over.
Use only a specifi ed power cable. Poor connection, poor insulation, and exceeding the
allowable current will lead to electric shock and fi re.
Install a breaker to cut off all AC main current at the same time.
If you do not install a breaker, it may cause electric shock and fi re.
Be sure to install the refrigerant pipe before operating the compressor. If the refrigerant
pipe is not installed and you operate the compressor while the valve is open, air will be
sucked into the system and abnormal pressure will occur in the refrigerant cycle. This
will damage the unit and cause injuries.
During the pump-down operation, make sure that the compressor is turned off before you
remove the refrigerant piping. Do not remove the connection pipe while the compressor
is in operation with 2-way or 3-way valve open. This may cause abnormal pressure in
the refrigeration cycle that leads to breakage and even injury.
If there is a possibility of touching the fan during maintenance, make sure to turn OFF
the power before implementing the maintenance. Even if operations are suspended, the
fan of outdoor unit sometimes rotates, so if the fan rotates suddenly while in contact with
you may cause serious injury.
Installation must be performed in accordance with the requirement of NEC (National
Electrical Code) and CEC (Canadian Electrical Code) by authorized personnel only.

2.1. Precautions for using R410A refrigerant

Pay careful attention to the following points:
Since the working pressure is 1.6 times higher than that of R22 models, some of the
piping and installation and service tools are special. (See the table in the SPECIAL
TOOLS FOR R410A section.)
Especially, when replacing a conventional refrigerant (other than R410A) model with
a new refrigerant R410A model, always replace the conventional piping and flare nuts
with the R410A piping and flare nuts.
Models that use refrigerant R410A have a different charging port thread diameter to pre-
vent erroneous charging with R22, R407C and for safety. Therefore, check beforehand.
[The charging port thread diameter for R410A is 1/2 UNF 20 threads per inch.]
Be more careful than the installation of the refrigerant (other than R410A) models, not
to enter foreign matters (oil, water, etc.) and other refrigerant into the piping. Also, when
storing the piping, securely seal the openings by pinching, taping, etc.
When charging the refrigerant, take into account the slight change in the composition
of the gas and liquid phases, and always charge from the liquid phase side whose
composition is stable.
