How can I use the auto-clean function of my air conditioner?

Last Update date : Oct 29. 2020

The auto-clean function automatically cleans and dries the inside of the air conditioner indoor unit. In order to keep the air conditioner in optimum condition and maintain purity of the air in your home, regularly clean the indoor unit, filters, and external exchanger.

What is an auto-clean function?

The auto-clean function will prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms by eliminating the moisture inside the indoor unit. This function prevents rusting on the evaporator coil. Activate this function to provide cleaner and healthier air. Using auto-clean is purely dependent on the user and how often they use it. We recommend that you use the auto cleaning function regularly.

  • The indoor unit display shows the cleaning progress (from 1 to 99%). 
  • After auto clean, the air conditioner will turn off automatically.
