Installation Safety • Do not install the air conditioner on an unstable surface or where there is a danger of it falling; because it may result in death, serious injury, and/or product failure. • Contact an authorized service center when you install or relocate the air conditioner. Failure to do so may result in serious injury and/ or product failure. • Indoor/outdoor wiring connections must be secured tightly and the cable should be routed properly so that there is no force pulling the cable from the connection terminals. Improper or loose connections may cause heat generation or fire. • Install the panel and the cover of the control box safely. Failure to do so may result in explosion or fire. • Do not install the air conditioner near a place with a danger of explo sion or fire; because it may result in serious bodily injury or death. • Ensure that the pipe and the power cable which connect the indoor unit and the outdoor unit are not pulled tight when installing the air conditioner. Failure to do so may result in electric shock or product failure. • Do not mix air or gas in the system except for the specific refriger ant. If air enters the refrigerant system, it may result in excessively high pressure that may lead to personal injury or damage to the equipment. Usage • Use only those parts which are listed in the service parts list. Never attempt to modify the equipment; because that may result in death, serious injury, and/or product failure. • Discard the batteries in a safe manner and where there is no danger of excessive heat or fire. Failure to do so may result in explosion or fire. • Contact an authorized service center when the air conditioner is submerged into water due to flooding. Failure to do so may result in explosion or fire. • Only use components that are approved by the manufacturer and do not repair or modify them; because it may result in electric shock and/or product failure. • Only use the refrigerant specified on the air conditioner label. Failure to do so may result in explosion or fire. • Do not allow water to run into the air conditioner; because it may result in explosion or fire. • Do not leave flammable substances such as gasoline, benzene and other white spirits or solvents, including thinner near the air condi tioner; because it may result in explosion or fire and may result in bodily injury. • Do not use the air conditioner for an extended period of time in a small place without ventilation; because it may result in explosion or fire. Make sure to ventilate the space regularly. SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS • Safely dispose of packing materials such as screws, nails or batter ies in a packing bag after installation or repair. Failure to do so may result in serious bodily injury. • Use caution when unpacking or installing the air conditioner. Failure to do so may result in bodily injury or product failure. • When lifting or transporting the equipment, there should be 2 or more people, or a forklift. Failure to do so may result in bodily injury. • Avoid exposure to leaking refrigerant which may occur during instal lation or repair. Failure to do so may result in personal injury and/or product failure. • If there is a refrigerant leak during the installation of the air condi tioner, ventilate the area immediately. Failure to do so may result in serious injury and/or product failure. • Do not install air conditioner with direct exposure to sea water or sea wind (salt spray); because it may result in product failure. • Install the drain hose properly for smooth drainage of condensed S a water. Failure to do so may result in product failure. f e t y I n s t r u c t i o • Do not touch the electrostatic filter after opening the front grill; n s because it may result in electric shock or product failure. • For inner cleaning, contact an authorized service center or a dealer. Do not use harsh detergent that causes corrosion or damage on the unit; because it may cause product failure, fire, and/or electronic shock. • Disconnect power if there is a noise, smell or smoke coming from the air conditioner. Failure to do so may result in explosion or fire. • Ventilate room or area when air conditioner and a heating appliance such as a heater are used simultaneously. Failure to do so may re sult in fire, serious injury, and/or product failure. • Make sure that children do not climb up the outdoor unit or impact it. Failure to do so may result in death, bodily injury and/or product failure. • If there is a gas leak, ventilate area sufficiently before using the air conditioner again. Failure to do so may result in explosion or fire. • Do not use the product for special purposes, such as preserving foods, works of art, etc.; because it may result in death, fire and/ or electric shock. The product is a consumer air conditioner, not a preci sion refrigeration system. • Do not block the inlet or outlet of air flow; because it may result explosion or product failure.
