Everyday Kanji week 24 - Air conditioner/heater remote control ③

運転 (unten) means “operation” and 停止 (teishi) means “stop”, so the yellow button is basically your ON/OFF button for the remote control.

 

The button to the left of that has the words 運転 (unten) and 切替 (kirikae). This is the button you press to switch between the different modes of operation. Among the choices are 冷房 (reibō, air conditioning), 暖房 (danbō, heater), 送風 (sōfū, which works like a fan), ドライ (dry, which dries up excess moisture in the room), etc.

 

運転 (unten) = operation

● 運 (un) = carry

● 転 (ten) = revolve

 

停止 (teishi) = stop

● 停 (tei) = stop

● 止 (shi) = halt

 

切換 (kirikae) = to switch

● 切 (kiri) = cut

● 換 (kae) = interchange

 

Sample Sentence:

この工場では、朝の6時から機械が運転しはじめます。

Kono kōjō de wa, asa no roku-ji kara kikai ga unten shihajimemasu.

”The machines at this factory start operating from six in the morning.”
