WARNING
!
CAUTION
!
A circuit breaker or fuse must be installed. Without a circuit breaker or fuse the danger of electric shock exists.
A main switch with a contact gap of more than 3mm has to be installed in the power supply line to the outdoor unit.
Do not install the unit near a location where there is flammable gas. The outdoor unit may
catch fire if flammable gas leaks around it.
Please ensure smooth flow of water when installing the drain hose.
Piping shall be suitable supported with a maximum spacing of 1m between the supports.
Please request your sales agent or qualified technician to install your unit. Water leakage, short circuit or fire may occur if you
do the installation work yourself.
Please observe the instructions stated in the installation manual during the process of installation. Improper installation may
cause water leakage, electric shock and fire.
Make sure that the units are mounted at locations which are able to provide full support to the weight of the units. If not, the
units may collapse and impose danger.
Observe the rules and regulations of the electrical installation and the methods described in the installation manual when
dealing with the electrical work. Use power cables approved by the authorities of your country.
Be sure to use the specified wire for connecting the indoor and outdoor units. Please ensure that the connections are tight
after the conductors of the wire are inserted into the terminals. Improper insertion and loose contact may cause over-heating
and fire.
Please use the specified components for installation work. Otherwise, the units may collapse or water leakage, electric shock
and fire may occur.
Be sure to use the specified piping set for R410A. Otherwise, this may result in broken copper pipes or faults.
When installing or removing an air conditioner, do not allow air or moisture to remain in the refrigeration cycle. Otherwise,
pressure in the refrigeration cycle may become abnormally high so that a rupture may be caused.
Be sure to ventilate fully if a refrigerant gas leak while at work. If the refrigerant gas comes into contact with fire, a poisonous
gas may occur.
After completion of installation work, check to make sure that there is no refrigeration gas leakage. If the refrigerant gas leaks
into the room, coming into contact with fire in the fan-driven heater, space heater, etc., a poisonous gas may occur.
Unauthorized modifications to the air conditioner may be dangerous. If a breakdown occurs please call a qualified air conditioner
technician or electrician. Improper repairs may result in water leakage, electric shock and fire, etc.
FOR SERVICE PERSONNEL ONLY
THE CHOICE OF MOUNTING SITE (Please note the following matters and obtain permission from customer before installation).
WARNING
!
The unit should be mounted at stable, non-vibratory location which
can provide full support to the unit.
WARNING
!
The Outdoor unit must be mounted at a location which can sup-
port heavy weight. Otherwise, noise and vibration will increase.
CAUTION
!
No nearby heat source and no obstruction near the air outlet is
allowed.
The clearance distances from top, right and left are specified in
figure below.
The location must be convenient for water drainage and pipe
connection with the Outdoor unit.
To avoid interference from noise please place the unit and its
remote controller at least 1m from the radio, television and inverter
type fluorescent lamp.
To avoid any error in signal transmission from the remote controller,
please put the controller far away from high-frequency machines
and high-power wireless systems.
The installation height of indoor unit must be 2.3m or more in a
non public area.
CAUTION
!
Do not expose the unit under direct sunshine or rain. Besides, ventilation
must be good and clear of obstruction.
The air blown out of the unit should not point directly to animals or plants.
The clearances of the unit from top, left, right and front are specified in
figure below. At least 3 of the above sides must be open air.
Be sure that the hot air blown out of the unit and noise do not disturb the
neighbourhood.
Do not install at a location where there is flammable gas, steam, oil and
smoke.
The location must be convenient for water drainage.
Place the Outdoor unit and its connecting cord at least 1m away from the
antenna or signal line of television, radio or telephone. This is to avoid
noise interference.
Do not install outdoor unit facing strong wind direction. It may damage the
fan motor.

CAUTION
!
The draining of the water container inside the indoor unit can be done from the left.
Therefore the hanger must be fixed horizontally or slightly tilted towards the side of
drain hose. Otherwise, condensed water may overflow the water container.
Direct Mounting On The Wall
Please use hidden beams in the wall to hold the hanger.
Wall Penetration and Installation of Protection Pipe
Drill a ø 65mm hole on
wall which is slightly tilted
towards the outdoor side.
Drill the wall at a small
angle.
Cut the protection pipe
according to the wall
thickness.
Empty gap in the sleeve
of protection pipe should
be completely sealed
with putty to avoid
dripping of rain water into
the room.
Procedures of Installation and Precautions
Procedures to fix the hanger.
1.Drill holes on wall. 2. Push plug into the holes. 3. Fix the hanger on wall
(As shown below) (As shown below) with 4.1 x 32 screw
(As shown in figure below)
Procedures to fix the holder of remote control.

VERTICALLY DOWNWARD PIPING
Preparation
Connect connecting cord.
Pull out the pipe, connecting cord and drain hose.
Installation
The upper part of the Indoor unit is hanged on the hanger.
The projection at the lower part of the Indoor unit is hooked onto the hanger.
Please pull the lower part of
the Indoor unit outwards to
check if the unit is hooked
onto the hanger. Improper
installation may cause
vibration and noise.
!
CAUTION
HORIZONTAL PIPING
Preparation
Change of Drain Hose and Installation Procedures.
Exchange the location of drain hose and drain cap during horizontal piping as shown in
figure below. Be sure to plug in the drain hose until the insulating material folds upon itself.
Please use pliers to pull out the drain cap.
(This is an easier way to remove the drain cap).
INSTALLATION OF REFRIGERATING PIPES AFTER CONNECTION
The refrigerating pipes should be adjusted to fit into
the hole on the wall and then ready for further
connection.
The terminals of 2 connected pipes must be covered
with insulator used for terminal connection. Then the
pipes are wrapped with insulation pipe.
Connect the connecting cord after removing electrical
cover. (Refer to CONNECTION OF POWER CORD)
After adjustment, fit the connecting cord and pipes
into the space available under the indoor unit. Use
holder to hold them tight.
!
CAUTION
The rubber strap used for
fixing the insulator should
not be tied with great force.
Otherwise, this will damage
heat insulation and causes
water condensation.
Holder can be attached at the either of 2 places.
Please select the easier position.
THE CONNECTION OF REFRIGERATING PIPE DURING THE
INSTALLATION OF INDOOR UNIT
Preparation To Install Refrigerating Pipes
!
CAUTION
Please fix in the plastic core
after flaring to avoid plastic
chips entering the pipes.
CAUTION
!
You are free to choose the side (left or right) for the installation of drain
hose. Please ensure the smooth flow of condensed water of the Indoor
unit during installation. (Carelessness may result in water leakage.)
!
CAUTION
Be sure that the
drain hose is not
loosely connected
or bend.
Be sure that the wire is not
in contact with any metal
in the wall. Please use the
protection pipe as wire
passing through the hollow
part of the wall so as to
prevent the possibility of
damaged by mouse.
Unless it seals completely,
any air with high humidity
flows from outdoor and
any dew may drop.
!
WARNING
The refrigerating pipes and connecting cord
transform and are attached.
The end of the refrigerating pipes are at locations
marked with
symbol.
Installation of Drain Hose

connecting refrigerating pipe.
Connect the connecting cord after removing electrical cover.
(Refer to Connection of Power Cord)
After adjustment, the connecting cord and refrigerating pipes
are placed into the space available under the Indoor unit.
The projection of Indoor unit must hook to the hanger.
