The air conditioner does not emit cool air. Air is not circulating properly. • Make sure that no cold air is escaping through the ventilation points in the room. The desired temperature is higher than the current temperature. • Make sure that there are no curtains, blinds, or pieces of furniture blocking the front of the air conditioner. The air filter is dirty. • Clean the air filter once every 2 weeks. • See “Clean the Air Filter” for more information. The room temperature is too high. • In summer, cooling the indoor air fully may take some time. In this case, select the Jet Mode to cool the indoor air quickly. Cold air is escaping from the room. • Set the desired temperature to a level lower than the current temperature. There is a heating source nearby. • Avoid using heat generators like electric ovens or gas burners while the air conditioner is in operation. Fan Mode is selected. • During Fan Mode, air blows from the air conditioner without cooling or heating the indoor air. • Switch the operation mode to cooling operation. Outside temperature is too high. • The cooling effect may not be sufficient. The fan speed cannot be adjusted. The Jet Mode, or Auto Operation Mode is selected. • In some operation modes, you cannot adjust the fan speed. Select an operation mode in which you can adjust the fan speed. The temperature cannot be adjusted. The Fan Mode or Jet Mode is selected. • In some operation modes, you cannot adjust the temperature.

The cooled air from the air conditioner makes mist. • When the room temperature decreases, this phenomenon will disappear. Water leaks from the outdoor unit. In the heating operations, condensed water drops from the heat exchanger. • This symptom requires installing a drain hose under the base pan. Contact the installer. There is noise or vibration. A clicking sound can be heard when the unit starts or stops due to movement of the reversing valve. Creaking sound: The plastic parts of the indoor unit creak when they shrink or expand due to sudden temperature changes. Flowing or Blowing sound: This is the flow of refrigerant through the air conditioner. • These are normal symptoms. The noise will stop. The indoor unit gives off an odor. Odors (such as cigarette smoke) may be absorbed into the indoor unit and discharged with airflow. • If the smell does not disappear, you need to wash the filter. If this does not work, contact the service center to clean your heat exchanger. The air conditioner does not emit warm air. When Heating Mode starts, the vane is almost closed, and no air comes out, even though the outdoor unit is operating. • This symptom is normal. Please wait until the unit has generated enough warm air to blow through the indoor unit. The outdoor unit is in Defrosting Mode. • In Heating Mode, ice/frost is built up on the coils when the outside temperature falls. This function removes a layer of frost on the coil, and it should finish in approximately 15 minutes. Outside temperature is too low. • The heating effect may not be sufficient. 37
