How It W ork s

W hen the unit is started, the fan begins to pull moisture-ladenair across the dehumidifying coils. The coils condense or draw moisture from the air, and air flows through the side louvers into the room as dry, warm air. Moisture removed from air is collected in a bucket on the front of the dehumidifier.

The unit is designed to operate between 41 F (5 C ), and 96 F (35 C ).

If the unit is switched off and needs to be switched on again, wait three minutes before doing so.

Make sure the tank is fitted correctly otherwise unit will not turn on.

OPERATION

Allow the unit to reach room temperature before operating.

To begin operating the dehumidifier, follow these steps:
