It is detachably locked to a locking portion 26A formed by a hole or a recess. Moreover, if the lower part of the base member 20 is attached to the cover part 2B by screwing, a locking part by an elastic claw, or other detachable stopper part, the base member 20 is stably attached to the front side of the air conditioner body 2. Attached and removably supported.

  Thus, by detachably supporting the base member 20 on the front side of the air conditioner body 2, the operating arms 21 </ b> A and 21 </ b> B are attached to the base member 20 by attaching the base member 20 to the front side of the air conditioner body 2. , 21C supported on the front side of the air conditioner body 2 at the same time. Further, by removing the base member 20 from the front side of the air conditioner body 2, the front panel 7 is also removed from the front side of the air conditioner body 2 at the same time.

  The front panel 7 is supported by the air conditioner body 2 so as to be able to reciprocate between a first state closed by the drive mechanism 27 and an open second state. The drive mechanism 27 includes an electric mechanism 34 that includes a drive cam member 33 and a driven cam member 35 that is operated by the drive cam member 33.

  As shown in FIG. 5, the electric mechanism 34 includes an electric motor 28, a small gear 29 that rotates with the electric motor 28, a large gear 30 that meshes with the electric gear 28, a small gear 31 that is coaxial with the large gear 30, and the small gear 31. And a drive side cam member 33 having teeth 32 that mesh with each other. The drive side cam member 33 is supported by a shaft 36 so as to be rotatable in a recess 37 formed in the cover 2B of the air conditioner body 2.

  The driven-side cam member 35 is pivotally supported on the front side of the air conditioner body 2, and specifically, the driven-side cam member 35 is formed integrally with one operating arm 21B. This is a form in which a driven cam surface 35A is formed on the rear surface of the operating arm 21B.

  A cam surface 33A is formed in a mountain shape on the front surface of the driving cam member 33, a cam surface 35A is formed in a valley shape on the rear surface of the driven cam member 35, and the cam surfaces 33A and 35A are in contact with each other. The driven cam member 35 reciprocates as the driving cam member 33 reciprocates. The reciprocating rotation of the drive side cam member 33 is performed by forward rotation and reverse rotation of the electric motor 28.

  In a non-operating state of the air conditioner 1 in a state where the front panel 7 and the base member 20 are connected by the operating arms 21A, 21B, 21C and the base member 20 is attached to the front surface of the air conditioner body 2. As shown in FIG. 5, the front panel 7 is moved to the base member 20 side and closed (first state). In such a state, when the operation switch of the air conditioner 1 is turned on, the electric motor 28 is rotated forward and the driving cam member 33 is rotated clockwise from the state of FIG. 5, and accordingly, the driven cam member 35 is driven. Rotates clockwise. By this operation, as shown in FIG. 6, the front panel 7 is moved away from the base member 20 and opened (second state). When the open second state is reached, control is performed by a control unit (not shown) so that the forward rotation of the electric motor 28 is stopped.

  In such a state, when the stop switch of the air conditioner 1 is turned on, the electric motor 28 rotates in the reverse direction, and the drive side cam member 33 rotates counterclockwise from the state of FIG. 35 rotates counterclockwise. By this operation, as shown in FIG. 5, the front panel 7 returns to the closed state (first state) in which the front panel 7 abuts or approaches the base member 20. When the first state where the front panel is closed is reached, it is controlled by a control unit (not shown) so that the reverse rotation of the electric motor 28 is stopped.

  Thus, in the operation stop state of the air conditioner 1, since the front panel 7 is in the first state closed, the air suction unit 5 is kept narrow and the thickness of the air conditioner 1 is reduced. Since the appearance is exhibited, the annoyance is reduced and the intrusion of dust is reduced.

  Further, in the second state in which the front panel 7 is opened, the air suction portion 5 is expanded, and a predetermined air suction amount from the air suction port 5B on the front surface can be secured. Heat exchange in the exchange unit 3A can be promoted, and a good air conditioning effect can be achieved.

  Note that the ON and OFF switches of the air conditioner 1 described above mean that the air conditioner 1 performs any one of the cooling operation, the heating operation, the dehumidifying operation, the ventilation operation, and the indoor air circulation operation. In order to select these operations, it means the operation of a switch that is manually operated or timer-controlled.

  The shaft supports 22A, 22B, and 22C, which are connecting portions between the front panel 7 and the operating arms 21A, 21B, and 21C, are detachable. That is, as shown in FIG. 10, the end portions of the operating arms 21A, 21B, and 21C are combined so as to sandwich the bearing portion 40 formed on the back side of the front panel 7, and the end portions of the operating arms 21A, 21B, and 21C are combined. A shaft member 42 having a shaft 41 penetrating the bearing portion 40 is supported by support portions 43, 43 formed on the back side of the front panel 7 so as to be slidable in the axial direction. For this reason, in a state where the protrusions 45 of the support portions 43 and 43 are fitted in the grooves 44 of the shaft member 42 by the elasticity of the support portions 43 and 43, the shaft 41 is connected to the end portions of the operating arms 21A, 21B, and 21C and the bearing portion. The shaft member 42 is held at a position passing through the shaft 40.

  When the front panel 7 is to be removed, the projection 45 is detached from the groove 44 due to the elasticity of the support portions 43 and 43 by pulling the shaft member 42 to the right in FIG. Since the coupling portion between the panel 7 and the operating arms 21A, 21B, and 21C is released, the front panel 7 can be detached from the base member 20 while leaving the operating arms 21A, 21B, and 21C. If the projection 45 is fitted in another groove 46 of the shaft member 42, the shaft member 42 can be kept stable in this state.

  As described above, the base member 20 is provided on the back side of the front panel 7 so as to be removable on the front side of the air conditioner body 2, and the front panel 7 is axially supported by the front panel 7 and the base member 20, respectively. The base member 20 is connected and supported by the left and right operating arms 21A and 21B.

  In addition, a driven cam surface 35A is formed on the rear surface of at least one of the operating arms 21B, and reciprocating rotation is performed by an electric mechanism 34 having a driving cam surface 33A in contact with the driven cam surface 35A. The drive side cam member 33 is provided in the air conditioner main body 2.

  The front panel 7 can reciprocate between a first state closed by the electric mechanism 34 and a second state opened so as to secure a predetermined air suction amount. The shaft coupling portions 22A and 22B with the left and right operating arms 21A and 21B can be detached from the base member 20 by detachable coupling, and the front panel 7 and the base member 20 are connected by the left and right operating arms 21A and 21B. It can be removed from the air conditioner body 2 while maintaining the state.

  As a result, the driving force is transmitted by the driving cam surface coming into contact with the driven cam surface formed on the rear surface of one of the operating arms. In addition, the driving force can be accurately transmitted to the front panel, and the configuration is simplified.

  Since the front panel is detachable from the shaft support portion with respect to the operating arm, only the front panel can be removed, and the base member and the front panel can be removed as a set. For this reason, it becomes easy to assemble at the time of manufacture, and at the time of internal repair or inspection, depending on the situation, it can be selected whether to remove only the front panel or to remove the base member and the front panel as a set. It is.

  In addition, the front panel and base member can be removed and attached as a set, and the front part of the air conditioner body can be opened widely during internal repairs and inspections. For example, multiple types of different colors can be used. An air conditioner with a front panel structure that can be replaced or selected according to consumer preferences or according to the interior of the room to be installed if a front panel or multiple types of front panels with different designs are prepared. It can be done.

  The air conditioner of the present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiment with respect to the form of the air suction portion and the like, and can be applied to various air conditioners without departing from the technical scope of the present invention.
