Operational Instructions
General Operation
1. Place the unit in the upright position ensuring that it is on a flat, stable, heat-resistant surface.
Note: To avoid a hazardous condition, do NOT place within 39 inches (100 mm) of anything that is flammable or heatsensitive.
2. Plug unit into wall socket (check the rating label to ensure that it matches the voltage of your electrical outlet).
3. Ensure that the Water Reservoir is properly attached and placed.
Note: If the Reservoir Full light illuminates on first use, slide water reservoir out and make sure that “Float”
lever moves freely. Return reservoir to proper position.
When Reservoir Full Light is ON
When the reservoir is full, the unit will stop and the “Reservoir Full” light will illuminate. Carefully remove
the reservoir from the unit by sliding it out from the front of the unit, and discard water. Once the reservoir
is empty, return it to position. The unit will return to normal operation.
Note: Use both hands when emptying the reservoir to avoid spillage.
Defrost Mode
When the unit operates at low temperatures (less than 56.6°F/12°C, a layer of frost may develop on the evaporator surface,
which reduces the dehumidifiers efficiency. In these cases, the unit goes into periodic Defrost Mode. Time to defrost may vary.
Note: This unit can operate in temperatures as low as 41°F/5°C. If the unit freezes, turn OFF and restart. If the room temperature
remains below 41°F/5°C, switch the unit OFF.
Continuous Drainage Function
Continuous Drainage Function
If the unit is operating in a location with good drainage, follow the steps below
to use the Continuous Drainage Function:
1. To avoid periodic emptying of the water reservoir, use the Continuous Drainage
Function by attaching the drain hose (included) to the continuous drainage
outlet at the back of the unit.
2. Unscrew and remove drain cover.
3. Remove soft rubber stopper (place in water reservoir for storage).
4. Insert the drain hose through the hole in the drain cover.
5. Connect drain hose to continuous drainage outlet.
6. Tighten drain cover by turning clockwise.
7. Return water reservoir to original position.
Maintenance Guide
Make sure the unit is unplugged from wall unit before cleaning.
Cleaning the exterior
1. Wipe with clean soft cloth.
2. If unit is especially dirty, use mild detergent with a moist cloth.
3. Do NOT clean with hose or immerse in water as this may short circuit the unit causing it to malfunction.
Cleaning the air filter
The air filter is designed to filter dust and other materials from the air. When the air filter is clogged, the unit will use more
electricity to operate. For optimal efficiency, clean the air filter once every two (2) weeks.
1. Pull air filter out gently.
2. Clean with a vacuum cleaner or wash with clean water and dry with a soft cloth.
3. Carefully re-install air filter to the unit
