● If the indoor unit is stopped and then immediately started again,
the compressor will not operate for about 3 minutes, in order to
prevent fuse blowouts.

protection circuit will operate for about 3 minutes, preventing unit
operation during that period.

of water À owing in the air conditioner's piping may be heard. Also,
noise may be particularly noticeable for about 2 to 3 minutes after
starting operation (sound of refrigerant À owing).
● During operation, a slight squeaking sound may be heard. This is
the result of minute expansion and contraction of the front panel
due to temperature changes.
● Some smell may be emitted from the indoor unit. This smell is the
result of room smells (furniture, tobacco, etc.) which have been
taken into the indoor unit.
● During Cooling or Dry operation, a thin mist may be seen emitted
from the indoor unit. This results from the sudden Cooling of room
air by the cool air emitted from the indoor unit, resulting in con-
densation and misting.
