7-3 GAS CHARGE

1 Connect gas cylinder to the service port of stop valve (3-way).
2 Execute air purge of the pipe (or hose) coming from refrigerant gas cylinder.
3 Replenish specified amount of the refrigerant, while operating the air conditioner

for cooling.

Note:
In case of adding refrigerant, comply with the quantity specified for the refrigerating
cycle.

 CAUTION

Do not discharge the refrigerant into the atmosphere.
Take care not to discharge refrigerant into the atmosphere during installation,
reinstallation, or repairs to the refrigerant circuit.

For additional charging, charge the refrigerant from liquid phase of the
gas cylinder.
If the refrigerant is charged from the gas phase, composition change may
occur in the refrigerant inside the cylinder and the outdoor unit. In this case,
ability of the refrigerating cycle decreases or normal operation can be
impossible. However, charging the liquid refrigerant all at once may cause the
compressor to be locked. Thus, charge the refrigerant slowly.

To maintain the high pressure of the gas cylinder, warm the gas cylinder with warm
water (under 40

°C) during cold season. But never use naked fire or steam.

6-5 TEST RUN

Before performing the test run, recheck for any wrong wiring.
Wrong wiring prevents normal operation or results in blown fuse disabling operation.

The test run can be started by pressing EMERGENCY OPERATION switch. When
the EMERGENCY OPERATION switch is once pressed, the unit will start the test run
(continuous operation) for 30 minutes.
A thermostat does not work during this time. After 30 minutes the unit will start the
EMERGENCY OPERATION at a fixed temperature setting of 24 

°C in COOL MODE.

Perform test run in the following procedure.

Note:
Insert the power supply plug into the power outlet and/or turn on the breaker.
Check that both of the operation indicator lamps are not lit.
If they are blinking, the horizontal vanes are not installed correctly.
In this case, disconnect the power supply plug and/or turn off the breaker, and then
reinstall the horizontal vanes. (See the OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS page 11.)

PURGING PROCEDURES

Connect the refrigerant pipes (both liquid pipe and the gas pipe) between the indoor
and the outdoor unit.

Remove the service port cap of the stop valve on the side of the outdoor unit gas
pipe. (The stop valve will not work in it initial state fresh out of the factory (totally
closed with cap on).)

Connect the gauge manifold valve and the vacuum pump to the service port of the
stop valve on the gas pipe side of the outdoor unit.

Run the vacuum pump. (Vacuumize for more than 15 minutes.)

Check the vacuum with the gauge manifold valve, then close the gauge manifold
valve, and stop the vacuum pump.

Leave as it is for one or two minutes. Make sure the pointer gauge manifold valve
remains in the same position. Confirm that the pressure gauge shows–0.101 Mpa
[Gauge] (–760 mmHg).

Pipe length up to 7 m
No gas charge is needed.

Pipe length exceeding 7 m
Charge the prescribed amount
of gas. (refer to 3)

Remove the gauge manifold valve quickly from the service port of the stop valve.

After refrigerant pipes are connected and evacuated, fully open all stop valves on
both sides of gas pipe and liquid pipe.
Operating without fully opening lowers the performance and this causes trouble.

Tighten the cap to the service port to obtain the initial status.

Retighten the cap.

FINISHING AND TEST RUN

INSTALLATION INFORMATION FOR THE AIR CONDI-
TIONER WITH R410A REFRIGERANT

This room air conditioner adopts an HFC refrigerant (R410A) which will never destroy
the ozone layer.

Pay particular attention to the following points, though the basic installation procedure
is same as that for R22 air conditioners.

1 As R410A has a working pressure approx. 1.6 times as high as that of R22, some

special tools and piping parts / materials are required. (Refer to the table below.)

2 Take sufficient care not to allow water and other contaminations to enter the

R410A refrigerant during storage and installation, since it is more susceptible to
contaminations than R22.

3 For refrigerant piping, use clean, pressure-proof parts / materials specifically

designed for R410A. (Refer to 2. Refrigerant piping.)

4 Composition change may occur in R410A since it is a mixed refrigerant. When

charging, charge liquid refrigerant to prevent composition change.

6-1 Tools dedicated for the air conditioner with R410A

refrigerant

The following tools are required for R410A refrigerant. Some R22 tools can be
substituted for R410A tools.
The diameter of the service port on the stop valve in outdoor unit has been changed to
prevent any other refrigerant being charged into the unit. (Cap size has been changed
from 7/16 UNF with 20 threads to 1/2 UNF with 20 threads.)

4-5 AUTO RESTART FUNCTION

These models are equipped with an auto restart function. If you do not want to use
this function, please consult the service representative because the setting of the unit
needs to be changed.

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. The auto restart function sets to work the moment the power has restored
after power failure, then, the unit will restart automatically. If the unit is operated in “I
FEEL...” or “AUTO” mode before power failure, the operation mode (COOL, DRY or
HEAT) is not stored in the memory. When the main power is turned on, the unit
decides the operation mode by the initial room temperature at restart and starts
operation again.

Operation

1 If the main power has been cut, the operation settings remain.
2 When three minutes have passed after power was restored, the unit will restart

automatically according to the memory.

Notes:
• The operation settings are memorized when 10 seconds have passed after the

remote controller was operated.

• If the main power is turned off or a power failure occurs while AUTO START/STOP

timer is active, the timer setting is cancelled. As these models are equipped with an
auto restart function, the air conditioner starts operating with timer cancelled at the
same time that power is restored.

• If the unit has been off with the remote controller before power failure, the auto

restart function does not work as the power button of the remote controller is off.

• To prevent breaker off due to the rush of starting current, systematize other home

appliances not to turn on at the same time.

4-6 PIPE FORMING

Place the drain hose below the refrigerant piping.

Make sure that the drain hose is not heaved or snaked.

Do not pull the hose to apply the tape.

When the drain hose passes the room, be sure to wrap insulation material (obtain-
able at a store) around it.

Wrap the felt tape 7 around the pipe and the drain hose, then put the pipe in the
back space of the indoor unit.

5-2 DRAIN PIPING FOR OUTDOOR UNIT

Provide drain piping before indoor and outdoor piping connection. (It will be hard to
install drain socket 9 if indoor and outdoor piping connection is conducted prior to
drain piping as outdoor unit becomes immovable.)

Connect the drain hose I (obtainable at a store, inside diameter: 15 mm) as
shown in the figure for drainage.

Make sure to provide drain piping with a downhill grade for easy drain flow.

Note:
Do not use the drain socket 9 in the cold region. Drain may freeze and it makes the
fan stop.

horizontally.

When bolts recessed in the concrete wall are to be utilized, secure the installation
plate 1 using 11 

× 20 · 11 × 26 oval hole (450 mm pitch).

If the recessed bolt is too long, change it for a shorter one available in the market.

4-2 WALL HOLE DRILLING

1 Determine the wall hole position.
2 Drill a 75 mm hole so that outside can be lower than inside.
3 Insert the wall hole sleeve C.

Positioning of the holes on the wall

Be sure to use wall hole sleeve C to prevent the outdoor connecting wires from
contacting with metal part in the wall and to prevent damage by rat in case the wall
is hollow.
