CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Always turn off the air conditioner and the main power supply
before cleaning the unit.
Switch off the power supply if the unit is not going to be used
for a long period of time.
Clean the cabinet, front grille with a mild soap or detergent and lukewarm water.
The front intake grille can be easily removed for cleaning purpose (refer to Remove
the front intake grille procedure). Gently wash with water and a sponge.
The filter can be easily cleaned using a vacuum cleaner. Vacuum the front of the filter
and then wash the rear with water. If it is badly soiled, wash with a mild household
Do not clean with benzene, thinner, scouring powder or cloth soaked in caustic
If the unit is extremely dirty, heat transfer is less efficient and the unit may not cool
If the air filter becomes clogged with dust, the cooling capacity will drop and 6% of the
electricity used to operate the air conditioner will be wasted.
NOTE: Do not dry the front panel or the air filter in direct sunlight. (Exposure to direct
sunlight may discolour or deform the panel.)
Is the discharged air cold?
After 15 minutes of operation, it is normal for the temperature difference between
intake and outlet air to be more than 8 C for cooling.
Are the air intake and outlet vanes of the indoor and outdoor side obstructed ?
Are the remote control batteries weak ?
Usage over several seasons will reduce performance as the unit becomes dirty.
A dirty unit may produce foul odours and dust may clog the dehumidifying drainage.
Seasonal inspection is recommended in addition to regular cleaning.
