How To Program The Daikin Remote

Step 1: Turn on the Remote Control

Before you can start programming your Daikin air conditioner, make sure the remote control is turned on. The power button is usually located at the top or bottom of the remote, depending on the model. You’ll know it’s on when the display screen lights up.

Step 2: Select the Mode

To choose the operation mode, press the ‘Mode’ button. The options are typically ‘Cool’, for cooling the room, ‘Heat’, for heating the room, ‘Fan’, for circulating air without heating or cooling, ‘Dry’, for reducing humidity, and ‘Auto’, where the air conditioner decides the optimal mode based on room temperature. Each press of the ‘Mode’ button will cycle through these options, and the current selection will be highlighted or displayed on the screen.

Step 3: Adjust the Temperature

Next, use the ‘Up’ and ‘Down’ buttons to adjust the temperature. These buttons are usually represented by arrows or plus and minus symbols. Press ‘Up’ to increase the temperature and ‘Down’ to decrease it. The temperature you set will be displayed on the remote’s screen.

Step 4: Set the Fan Speed

The ‘Fan’ button allows you to set your preferred fan speed. The options typically range from ‘Auto’, where the air conditioner adjusts the fan speed based on current room conditions, to ‘Low’, ‘Medium’, ‘High’, or ‘Powerful’ for maximum airflow. Each press of the ‘Fan’ button will cycle through these options, with the current selection shown on the screen.

Step 5: Set the Swing

By pressing the ‘Swing’ button, you control the movement of the air conditioner’s louvers, which direct the airflow. Options include ‘Auto’, where the louvers move automatically to distribute air evenly, ‘Horizontal’ for side-to-side movement, ‘Vertical’ for up-and-down movement, or ‘Swing’ for both horizontal and vertical movement.

Step 6: Set the Timer

You can program your air conditioner to switch on or off at a specific time by using the ‘Timer’ button. Press this button and then use the ‘Up’ and ‘Down’ buttons to set the desired time. This feature is especially useful for ensuring a comfortable temperature when you come home or wake up, without running the air conditioner all day or night.

Step 7: Save your Settings

Once you’ve adjusted all the settings to your liking, press the ‘OK’ or ‘Enter’ button to save them. The air conditioner will now operate according to these settings, ensuring your comfort while also being energy efficient.

Step 8: Check the Display

Finally, check the display on the remote to confirm that all your settings are correct. The screen should reflect your chosen mode, temperature, fan speed, swing, and timer settings.

Daikin air conditioner remote controls can be used with a universal remote code to program it to work with your Daikin remote. See below for how to:

Step 1: Power On Your Air Conditioner

The first step to programming your Daikin air conditioner remote control is to turn on the air conditioner unit. You can do this by pressing the power button on the air conditioner itself. Make sure that the power indicator light is on before proceeding to the next step.

Step 2: Find the Universal Remote Code

Get the universal remote code for your Daikin air conditioner. This code is usually provided in the user manual of your universal remote. If you do not have the user manual, you can usually find the code online. The code is typically a series of numbers.

Step 3: Enter the Universal Remote Code

On your universal remote, press and hold the ‘SET’ or ‘SETUP’ button until the indicator light on the remote starts to blink. Once it starts blinking, enter the universal remote code using the number keys on the remote.

Step 4: Confirm the Code

After entering the code, wait for the indicator light on the remote to stop blinking. This usually takes a few seconds. If the light goes off instead of stopping the blink, it means the code was not accepted. In this case, repeat step 3 with a different code if available.

Step 5: Adjust the Settings

Once the code is accepted, you can use the remote to adjust your air conditioner settings. This includes adjusting the temperature, fan speed, and mode.

Step 6: Activate the Timer

If your universal remote has a timer function, you can set it to turn your air conditioner on or off at specific times. To do this, press the ‘TIMER’ button on the remote and use the number keys to set the desired time.

Step 7: Save Your Settings

After adjusting all your settings, press the ‘SAVE’ or ‘EXIT’ button on the remote to save your settings. Your Daikin air conditioner should now respond to commands from the Daikin remote or the universal remote.

If you’re having issues, double check the Daikin code you entered. Be sure that your air conditioner model is compatible with the remote you are using or the universal remote. Try resetting the AC remote if nothing is working.
