IMPORTANT INSTALLER INFORMATION


S Confirm that return air temperature sensor (RT1) is mounted in front of the indoor coil (see page 9 for correct sensor
location).
S Confirm proper slope and routing of condensate lines to ensure moisture is drained away from the indoor unit (see
procedure starting on page 11)
S Confirm proper insulating, taping and bundling of refrigeration lines, main power lines and drain line (see procedure
starting on page 23).
S Stranded wire must be used to connect the outdoor unit to the indoor unit. The stranded wire is necessary to ensure
proper system communication and operation.
S The included remote control could be shipped in various locations in the unit packaging. Locate remote control
before discarding packaging (i.e. bag assembly, styrofoam, etc.). Unit cannot be properly operated without the
included remote control.

Clearances
SYSTEM CLEARANCES IMPORTANT
Refer to figure 4 for mandatory installation clearance Only use Allen wrenches of sufficient hardness (50Rc -
requirements. Rockwell Harness Scale minimum). Fully insert the
wrench into the valve stem recess.
Service valve stems are factory-torqued (from 9 ft-lbs for
small valves, to 25 ft-lbs for large valves) to prevent
refrigerant loss during shipping and handling. Using an
Allen wrench rated at less than 50Rc risks rounding or

Indoor and Outdoor Error Codes
This section identifies error codes that appear on the front panel of the indoor unit or outdoor unit control. Many of the error codes
will automatically clear themselves when the error no longer exists. However some error codes may require disconnecting power
to the system at the unit disconnect switch or circuit breaker in order to clear them and to resume normal system operation.

* The temperature readout (either


temperature setpoint or indoor
ambient) will be replaced by an 72
error code if there is a malfunction.
If multiple errors are detected, the
