I have an airconditioner installed on my balcony. I need to remove it to allow the balcony floor to be maintained. It needs to be disconnected from power supply and internal unit. How can I do this myself?

Re: Panasonic Reverse cycle Airconditioner
This operation should NOT be done by the home owner. If the unit has valves on the high and low sides to enable a pump down operation of the system (gage manifold required) to return all refrigerant to the high side of the system (condensing unit). If the system does not have valves it must have the refrigerant charge recovered from the system before it is disconnected. Call someone qualified!

If this is the 3-in-1 air conditioner, then you have two options:
1- do you see two drain outlets on the back? one is at the very bottom and has a removable plug and the second should be about half way down also with a removable plug. This air conditioner has a small non-removable tank that will fill up and a red light on the panel will light up and the machine will switch to FAN mode when full. Then you have to roll the machine to a drain and unplug the bottom plug to let it drain out. Not resonable.Probably good for a basement with a drain in the floor, but not on the main floor or 2nd storey floor.
2nd method is to unplug the top drain (Keep the bottom drain plugged) , attach the plastic hose that the machine came with to this drain, find a bucket that is at the same height or below the top drain and let the water drain into the bucket. Then when it gets about 3/4 of the way full, empty the bucket.This way the airconditioner mode and the humidifier mode will work continously.
This is the way this type of air conditioner is made.
Hi, I assume it is ducted, it could be either a flapper door is closed to shut off an area from receiving air, or there is a blockage in the duct (less likely). Also if there is more than one duct attached to the air conditioner then you'll have to check if air is entering all ducts (you may have a problem with the unit).
