• Leakage of refrigerant or lack of refrigerant.• Check leakage and rightly recharge refrigerant.
The fan speed can not be changed.• Check whether the MODE indicated on the display is "AUTO"When the automatic mode is selected, the air conditioner will automatically change the fan speed.
• Check whether the MODE indicated on the display is "DRY"When dry operation is selected, the air conditioner automatically change the fan speed. The fan speed can be selected during "COOL", "FAN ONLY”, and "HEAT".
The remote controller signal is not transmitted even when the ON/OFF button is pushed.• Check whether the batteries in the remote controller are exhausted.The power supply is off.
The TEMP, indicator does not come on.• Check whether the MODE indicated on the display is FAN ONLYThe temperature cannot be set during FAN mode.
The indication on the display disappears after a lapse of time.• Check whether the timer operation has come to an end when the TIMER OFF is indicated on the display.The air conditioner operation will stop up to the set time.
The TIMER ON indicator goes off after a lapse of certain time.• Check whether the timer operation is started when the TIMER ON is indicated on the display.Up to the set time, the air conditioner will automatically start and the appropriate indicator will go off.
No receiving tone sounds from the indoor unit even when the ON/OFF button is pressed.• Check whether the signal transmitter of the remote controller is properly directed to the infrared signal receiver of the indoor unit when the ON/OFF button is pressed.Directly transmit the signal transmitter of the remote controller to the infrared signal receiver of the indoor unit, and then repeatly push the ON/OFF button twice.

FaultCauses / Action
1. The compressor does not operate 3 minutes after the air conditioner unit is started.- Protection against frequent starting. Wait for 3 to 4 minutes for the compressor to start operating.
2. The air conditioner unit does not operate.- Power failure, or the fuse need to be replaced.
- The power plug is disconnected.
- It is possible that your delay timer has been set incorrectly.
- If the fault persist after all these verifications, please contact the air conditioner unit installer.
3. The air flow is too low.- The air filter is dirty.
- The doors or windows are open.
- The air suction and discharge are clogged.
- The regulated temperature is not high enough.
4. Discharge air flow has bad odour.- Odours may be caused by cigarettes, smoke particles, perfume etc. which might have adhered onto the coil.
5. Condensation on the front air grille of the indoor unit.- This is caused by air humidity after an extended long period of operation.
- The set temperature is too low, increase the temperature setting and operate the unit at high fan speed.
6. Water flowing out from the air conditioner unit.- Switch off unit and call dealer.
7. Hissing air flow sound from the air conditioner unit during operation.- Refrigerant fluid flowing into the evaporator coil.

ProblemTroubleshooting
The unit does not operate:• The unit does not operate if it is turned on immediately after it is turned off. This is to protect the unit. You should wait about 3 minutes.
Odours are emitted:• Some odours may be emitted from the indoor unit. This is the result of room smells (such as fumiture.tobacco.ect.) which have been taken into the air conditioner.
• Consult authorized service center for cleaning if the odours still exist.
"Water flowing" noise:• The swishing noise like water flowing is the refrigerant flowing inside the unit.
Mist is emitted in COOL mode• During cooling operation, a thin mist may be seen emitted from the indoor unit due to high room temperature and humidity. After a period of time, the mist will disappear with the decrease of room temperature and humidity.
Cracking noise:• This is the sound of friction caused by expansion and/or contraction of panel or other parts due to the change of temperature.
The unit can not be started up:• Is the power cut off?
• Is the power plug loose? (if applicable)
• Is the circuit protection device tripped off?
• Is voltage higher or lower? (Tested by professionals)
• Is the TIMER correctly used?
Cooling/Heating effect is poor:• Is temperature setting appropriate?
• Is the inlet or outlet blocked?
• Is the filter dirty?
• Is the window or the door open?
• Is low fan speed set?
• Are there heat sources in the room?
Remote controller is not available:• Check if there is magnetic or electrical interference near the unit that may affecting operation of the controller. In this case, pull the plug out and reinsert it.
• Is the remote controller within its operating range or obstructed? Check the condition of the batteries and replace them if necessary.
• Check if the remote controller is damaged.
Water leakage of indoor unit :• The humidity is high.
• Condensing water overflows.
• Drain hose is loose.
Water leakage of outdoor unit :• During cooling operation, water condensate is generated around the pipes and connection joints.
• During defrosting operation.the thaw water flows out.
• During heating operation.the water on the heat exchanger drips out.
Noise from indoor unit.• The noise emitted when the fan or compressor relay is switching on or off.
• When the defrosting operation is started or stopped, there is a sound of refrigerant flowing in the reverse direction.
Indoor unit can not blow air:• In HEAT mode, when the temperature of indoor heat exchanger is very low. air flow is stopped in order to prevent cold air. (Within 2 minutes)
• In HEAT mode, when the outdoor temperature is low or humidity is high, frost will be formed on the outdoor heat exchanger. The unit will defrost automatically and indoor unit will stop blowing air for 3-12 minutes.
• During defrosting operation, water or vapour may be emitted.
• In DRY mode, the indoor fan will stop blowing air for 3-12 minutes in order to avoid condensing water being vaporised again.
Moisture on air outlet :• If the unit operates at high humidity for a long time, moisture will be generated on the air outlet grill and then drip off.
C5:Malfunction of connector jumper:• Check if the connector jumper contacts properly. If the PCB is to be replaced, please take off the old for the new PCB.
F1:Malfunction of indoor ambient temperature sensor• Check if indoor room temperature sensor is connected properly.
F2:Malfunction of evaporator temperature sensor• Check if the evaporator temperature is connected properly.
H1:Defrosting • It is normal.
