Fixing the installation plate:

1.Fit the installation plate horizontally on structural parts of the walt with spaces around the installation plate.

2.If the wal! is made of brick, concrete or the like, drill eight (8) 5mm diameter holes in the wall.

Insert Clip anchor for appropriate mounting screws.

3.Fit the installation plate on the wall with eight (8) type "A" screws..

Drill a hole inthe wall

1.Determine hole positions according to the diagram detailed in figure beside. Drill one (!) hole (65mm) slanting slightly to outdoor side.

2.Always use wal! hole conduit when

drilling metal grid, metal plate or the like..

4.Push the lower part of the Indoor Unit up on the wall. Then move the Indoor Unit from side to side, up and down to check if it is hooked securely.

Piping and wrapping

1.Wind the connective cable, drain hose and wiring with tape securely, evenly as shown beside.

2.Because the condensed water

from rear of the indoor unit is gathered in Pond Box and is piped

1.Connect the indoor unit first then the outdoor unit and bend and arrange the pipe carefully.

2.Do not allow the piping to let out from the back of the indoor unit.

3.Be careful not to let the drain hose slack.

4.Insulate both of the auxiliary piping.

5.Be sure that the drain hose is located at the lowest side of the bundle. Locating at the upper side can cause drain pan to overflow inside the unit.

6.Never intercross nor intertwist the power wire with any other wiring.

7.Run the drain hose sloped downward to drain out the condensed water

smoothly.

Outdoor unit installation

1.Install the outdoor unit on a rigid

base to prevent increasing noise level and vibration.

2.Determine the air outlet direction

where the discharged air is not blocked.

3.In the case that the installation place is exposed to strong wind such as a seaside operation by putting the unit lengthwise along the wall or using a dust or shield plates.

4.Specially in windy area, install the

unit to prevent the admission of wind.

5.If need suspending installation, the installation bracket should accord

with technique requirement in the

installation bracket diagram. The installation wal! should be solid

brick, concrete or the same

intensity construction, or actions to

reinforce, damping supporting should be taken. The connection

between bracket and walt, bracket and the air conditioner should be firm, stable and reliable..

6.Be sure there is no obstacle which block radiating air.

Refrigerant piping connection

Flaring work

Main cause for refrigerant leakage is due to defect in the flaring work.

Carry out correct flaring work sing the following procedure:

1.Cut the pipes and the cable.

A)Use the piping kit accessory or pipes purchased locally.

B)Measure the distance between the indoor and the outdoor unit.

C)Cut the pipes a little longer than the measured distance.

D)Cut the cable 1.5m longer than the pipe length.

2.Burr removal.

A)Completely remove all burrs from the cut cross section of

pipe/tube.

B) Put the end of the copper tube/pipe in a downward direction as you remove burrs in order to avoid dropping burrs into the tubing.

3.Putting nut on.

A)Remove flare nuts attached to indoor and outdoor unit, then put them on pipe/tube having completed burr removat.(not

possible to put them on after flaring work)
