The refrigerant overcharge can be confirmed by using the switches on lnterface PCB of the outdoor unit.
If refrigerant overcharge detection worked, first check the following.
• Occlusion of outdoor heat exchanger
• Outdoor fan trouble
• Outdoor service valve, check valve in discharge pipe, check valve in liquid pipe clogging
• Ventilation resistance of outdoor fan
• Short-circuiting of outdoor suction/discharge air flows
If these conditions are not abnormal, there is a possibility that the refrigerant charging amount is excessive.
Refill the refrigerant to its standard volume.
Refrigerant overcharge can be detected by comparing the Actual PD with the Calculated PD during the
operation.
* Calculated PD: Calculated from suction saturation temperature, compressor frequency, outdoor
temperature.

[Operation]
• Confirming the refrigerant overcharge
Set SW01 to 03 as shown in the following table to confirm whether the overcharge is being detected.
(It also can be confirmed by remote control monitor function. Refer to 7-7-13.Monitor Function of

The refrigerant leakage can be confirmed by using the switches on Interface PCB of
the outdoor unit.
If there is a leak, the location must be found in order to recover the refrigerant.
After that, implement appropriate countermeasure and refill the refrigerant to its
standard volume.
Refrigerant leaks can be detected by comparing the Actual opening of PMV with the Calculated
opening of PMV* during the operation.
* Calculated opening of PMV: calculated from the initial value(C.i), the pressure sensor value, the
compressor’s URWDWLRQVSHHG, and the opening of PMV. The initial values are automatically saved
when the specified conditions are met.
(A leak can be detected only when C.i = 1)

[Operation]
(1) Confirming the refrigerant leakage
Set SW01 to 03 as shown in the following table to confirm whether the leaks are being detected.
(It also can be confirmed by remote control monitor function. Refer to 7-7-12. Monitor function of remote
controller switch.)
(2) Clearing the initial value
If the system is changed (e.g. indoor units are increased/replaced, outdoor units are moved, or refrigerant is
refilled/increased) it is necessary to clear the initial value that had been saved.
Make sure that the compressor has stopped, and then press and hold SW04 for at least 5 seconds.

8 TROUBLESHOOTING
8-1. Overview
(1) Before engaging in troubleshooting
(a) Applicable models
All Super Module Multi System (SMMS-7) models.
(Indoor units: MM*-AP*** , Outdoor units: MMY-MAP***7*)
(b) Tools and measuring devices required
(c) Screwdrivers (Philips, flat head), spanners, long-nose pliers, nipper, pin to push reset switch, etc.
(d) Multimeter, thermometer, pressure gauge, etc.
(b) Things to check prior to troubleshooting (behaviors listed below are normal)
NO. Behavior Possible cause
A compressor would not start • Could it just be the 3-minute delay period (3 minutes after compressor
shutdown)?
1 • Could it just be the air conditioner having gone thermostats OFF?
• Could it just be the air conditioner operating in fan mode or put on the timer?
• Could it just be the system going through initial communication?
An outdoor fan would not start or would • Could it just be cooling operation under low outside temperature
2 change speed for no reason conditions?

The air conditioner would not respond to a • Could it just be the air conditioner operation under external or remote
3
start/stop command from a remote controller control?

CAUTION

The cooling performance may decling considerably when total operating capacity of cooling indoor units is
less than 4 HP WHILE AMBIENT TEMPERATURE IS BELOW 0°C.

(2) Troubleshooting procedure


When a problem occurs, proceed with troubleshooting in accordance with the procedure shown below.
"E28" check code
Problem Investigate check code Investigate check code Check the problem
displayed on interface P.C. board displayed on interface P.C. site or problem part
of header unit board of relevant follower unit
Any other problem

NOTE
Rather than a product trouble (see the List of Check Codes below), the problem could have been caused by
a microprocessor malfunction attributable to a poor quality of the power source or an external noise. Check
for possible noise sources, and shield the remote controller wiring and signal wires as necessary.

- 131 -
8-2. Troubleshooting Method
The remote controllers (main remote controller and central control remote controller) and the interface P.C. board
of an outdoor unit are provided with an LCD display (remote controller) or a 7-segment display (outdoor interface
P.C. board) to display operational status. Using this self-diagnosis feature, the problem site/problem part may be
identified in the event of a problem by following the method described below.

The list below summarizes check codes detected by various devices. Analyze the check code according to where it is displayed and work out
the nature of the problem in consultation with the list.
• When investigating a problem on the basis of a display provided on the indoor remote controller or TCC-LINK central control remote controller -
See the “TCC-LINK remote control or main remote controller display” section of the list.
• When investigating a problem on the basis of a display provided on an outdoor unit - See the “Outdoor 7-segment display” section of the list.
• When investigating a problem on the basis of a wireless remote controller-controlled indoor unit - See the “Light sensor indicator light block”
section of the list.

Points to Note When Servicing Compressor
(1) When checking the outputs of inverters, remove the wiring from all the compressors.

How to Check Inverter Output


(1) Turn off the power supply.
(2) Remove compressor leads from the IPDU P.C. board (A3-IPDU). (Be sure to remove all the leads.)
(3) Turn on the power supply and start cooling or heating operation.
Be careful not to make simultaneous contact with two or more faston connectors for compressor leads or a
faston connector and some other object (e.g. the unit cabinet).
(4) Check the output voltage across each pair of inverter-side (CN201, 202, 203).
If the result is unsatisfactory according to the judgment criteria given in the table below, replace the IPDU P.C.
board.
No. Measured leads Criterion
1 Red-White 380~580V
2 White-Black 380~580V
3 Black-Red 380~580V

* When connecting the compressor leads back to the compressor terminals after checking the output, check the
faston connectors thoroughly to ensure that they are not crooked. If there is any loose connector, tighten it with
a pair of pliers, etc. before connecting the lead.

How to Check Resistance of Compressor Winding


(1) Turn off the power supply.
(2) Remove compressor leads from the compressors.
(3) With each compressor, check the phase-to-phase winding resistances and winding-to-outdoor cabinet
resistance using a multimeter.
• Earth trouble?
It is normal if the winding-to-outdoor cabinet resistance is 10M or more.
• Inter-winding short circuit?
It is normal if the phase-to-phase resistances are in the 0.1-1.0 range. (Use a digital multimeter.)

How to Check Outdoor Fan Motor


(1) Turn off the power supply.
(2) Remove fan motor leads from the IPDU P.C. board for the outdoor fan (CN301-CN303).
(3) Rotate the fan by hand. If the fan does not turn, the fan motor is trouble (locked up). Replace the fan
motor. If the fan turns, measure the phase-to-phase winding resistances using a multimeter. It is normal if
the measurements are in the 8.1-9.9 range. (Use a digital multimeter.)

Checking Procedure to Be Followed in Event of Abnormal Shutdown


If the system is shut down due to a trouble in the outdoor unit, perform checks in the following steps:
1 Open the panel of the outdoor unit and inspection window of the electric parts box, and check the
7-segment display.
The check code is displayed in the right-hand section of the 7-segment display [B].
[U1] [OOO] ([OOO]: Check code)
* To check the check code, set the rotary switches SW01/SW02/SW03 to [1/1/1].
If there is a sub-code, the display alternates between the check code [OOO] (3 seconds) and the sub-code
[OOO] (1 second).
2 Check the check code and follow the applicable diagnostic procedure.
3 If the 7-segment display shows [U1] [E28], there is trouble in a follower unit.
Press the push-switch SW04 on the header unit and hold for several seconds.
As the fan of the outdoor unit in which the trouble has occurred comes on, open the panel of the unit, and
check the check code shown on the 7-segment display.

4 Perform checks in accordance with the diagnostic procedure applicable to the check code.
