5.If the cord/plug is damaged, only replace it with an authorized replacement part.

USAGE

1.Being exposed to direct airflow for an extended period of time could be hazardous to your health. Do not expose occupants, pets, or plants to direct airflow for extended periods of time.

2.Ventilate the room when the dehumidifier is used with other heating devices. Otherwise the oxygen supply may be inadequate.

3.Do not use this dehumidifier for non-specifiedspecial purposes (e.g. preserving precision devices, food, pets, plants, and art objects). Such usage could damage the items.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

1.Do not touch the metal parts of the unit when removing the filter. Injuries can occur when handling sharp metal edges.

2.Do not use water to clean inside the dehumidifier. Exposure to water can destroy the insulation,
