NOTE: U se the Sleep function when you are going to bed. If you set the Sleep function during the day, the cooling capacity is reduced since the ambient temperature is too high at daytime.
Basic Heating Principles The air conditioner absorbs heat from the outdoor air and transfers it indoors so as to heat the room air. The heating capabilities of this heat pump principle go up/down with the increase/decrease of the outdoor air temperature. • It only takes a fairly short time for such hot air circulation system to raise the room temperature. • When the outdoor air temperature is very low, the system can be used together with other heating devices. But good ventilation should be maintained to ensure personal safety and prevent accidents.
Defrosting When the outdoor air temperature is very low and humidity is very high, the heat exchanger of the outdoor unit may frost up, which has negative impacts upon the efficiency of the heating performance. In such a case, the automatic defrosting function will activate, which will stop the heating operation for 5-10 minutes to defrost the unit. • The fans of both the outdoor and indoor units are stopped. • During the defrosting, the outdoor unit might generate some steam. It is caused by fast defrosting, which is not a performance failure. • Upon the completion of the defrosting process, the heating operation will be resumed.
Cleaning and Maintenance Periodic cleaning and maintenance is essential for keeping your air conditioner in good condition and working efficiently. CAUTION! Before carrying out any maintenance, make sure the air conditioner is turned off at the power socket outlet.

The unit cannot be After shutting down the unit, you will have to wait restarted just after for 3 minutes before it can be restarted. This is an shutdown (running internal protection mechanism. indicator is illuminated). Air is not blown out at the start of the heating operation.
In order to prevent cold air being blown out in Heating mode, airflow is prevented until the indoor heat exchanger has warmed up the air sufficiently. This may take 2 to 5 minutes.
In Heat mode, air is not blown out for 6 to 12 minutes.
On very cold days with high humidity, the air conditioner may perform an automatic defrosting cycle during which water or steam may raise from the outdoor unit. Please wait; heating operation will start automatically after the defrosting cycle.
Air is not blown out in Dry mode.
In Dry mode, the indoor fan is sometimes stopped to save energy and prevent steam generation from moisture evaporation.
Mist is blown out in Cool mode.
This phenomenon sometimes occurs when the temperature and humidity in the room are very high. It will disappear as the temperature and humidity in the room are lowered.
A cracking noise can be heard.
This is caused by the refrigerant that is circulating inside the unit. It is no cause for concern.
A cracking noise can be heard after a power stoppage or after disconnecting the power supply plug.
This noise is caused by heat expansion or contraction of plastics. It is no cause for concern.
After a power outage, operation cannot be restarted.
