    SERVICE FUNCTIONS MSZ-RW25VG MSZ-RW35VG MSZ-RW50VG 8-1. TIMER SHORT MODE For service, the following set time can be shortened by bridging the timer short mode point on the electronic control P.C. board. (Refer to 10-7.) • The set time for the ON/OFF timer can be reduced to 1 second for each minute.
  • Page 11 8-4. AUTO RESTART FUNCTION When the indoor unit is controlled with the remote controller, the operation mode, the set temperature, and the fan speed are memorized by the indoor electronic control P.C. board. “AUTO RESTART FUNCTION” automatically starts operation in the same mode just before the shutoff of the main power. Operation If the main power has been cut, the operation settings remain.

CHANGING THE CORRECTION VALUE OF THE ROOM TEMPERATURE (THE INLET TEMPERATURE) The correction value of the room temperature can be adjusted in the range of 2 to 5 °C with the remote controller. Normally, the temperature at the room temperature sensor might become higher than that around feet because warm air tends to accumulate around an indoor unit during heating operation.
