[8-3 Refrigerant Control Problems ]
RPM error of the outdoor unit FAN
Motor failure or board failure, or airflow rate de-
crease due to clogging of the heat exchanger

Long piping length
The cooling capacity varies greatly depending on the
pressure loss. (When the pressure loss is large, the
cooling capacity drops.)
Piping size is not proper (thin)
Insufficient refrigerant amount
Protection works and compressor frequency does
not rise due to high discharge temperature.
Clogging by foreign object
The indoor unit inlet temperature is excessively.
(Less than 15°C [59°F] WB)
The amount of circulating refrigerant decreases due
to refrigerant leak in the compressor.
BC controller LEV 3 actuation failure
Sufficient liquid refrigerant is not be supplied to the
indoor unit as sufficient sub cool cannot be secured
due to LEV3 malfunction.
TH12, TH15 and 63HS1 sensor failure or faulty wir-
LEV3 is not controlled normally.
Check method and remedy

Check the piping length to determine if it is contributing
to performance loss.
Piping pressure loss can be estimated from the tem-
perature difference between the indoor unit heat ex-
changer outlet temperature and the saturation
temperature (Te) of 63LS. →Correct the piping.
Refer to item 1 (Compressor frequency does not rise
sufficiently.) on the previous page. (page 259)
Refer to the following page(s).[6-9 Evaluating and Ad-
justing Refrigerant Charge](page 161)
Check the temperature difference between in front of
and behind the place where the foreign object is clog-
ging the pipe (upstream side and downstream side).
When the temperature drops significantly, the foreign
object may clog the pipe.
→ Remove the foreign object inside the pipe.
Check the inlet air temperature and for short cycling.
Change the environment where the indoor unit is
Check the discharge temperature to determine if the
refrigerant leaks, as it rises if there is a leak.
Refer to the following page(s).[8-8 Troubleshooting
LEV Problems](page 273)
It most likely happens when there is little difference or
no difference between TH12 and TH15.
Check the thermistor.
