When the unit is operated in low temperatures (less than 54 °F the surface of the evaporator will accumulate a layer of frost which will reducetheefficiencyofthedehumidifier.Whenthishappenstheunitwillgo into periodic defrost mode automatically. The Defrost Lamp will illuminate on control panel, this is quite normal (See Figure 7).

The dehumidifier will operate in temperatures down to 41 °F. The time it takestodefrostmayvary.Iftheunitfreezesupitshouldbeturnedoffatthe power supply for a few hours and then re-started.If the room temperature remainsbelow41°Ftheunitshouldbeswitchedoff.Itisnotrecommended to use the dehumidifier in temperatures below 41 °F.

Drain Hose Routings

When using the function of continuous drainage, the drain hose must be placed horizontally below the drainage hole (See Figure 23).

You must avoid uneven ground and folding the hose (See Figure 23).

Figure 23

FRD026

Continuous Draining using the Pump (D50D/D70D models only) Installation:

STEP 1. Connect the attached continuous drainage adaptor (1) to the drain hole on the rear panel (2).

STEP 2. Connect the supplied water hose to the plug that fits into the drain hole.

STEP 3. Lead the other end to a suitable location for drainage, like a drain or sink and insert the plug into the water drain.

The maximum distance and the rise may be 15 ft from the unit. Exceeding this distance may damage the unit or cause leaks. When the unit’s drain bucket capacity reaches a certain water level, it will drain automatically (See Figure 24).

Dismantle:

Press the drain hole (3) on the unit rear panel. The automatic drainage adaptor will pull out (See Figure 24).

Cleaning the shell

STEP2. Clean the air filter with a vacuum cleaner or wash it with clean water and dry with a dry cloth (See Figure 26).

STEP 1. Wipe the shell with a clean, soft cloth.

STEP 2. If the unit is very dirty, use mild detergent then wipe off the detergent with half dried cloth.

WARNING

Water Hazard

Do not wash the unit with a hose or immerse it in water. This may cause leakage of electricity or a shock hazard.

Cleaningtheairfilter

The purpose of the air filter is to filter dust and other materials from the air. If the filter is blocked by dust the electricity usage will be greater than normal. For optimal moisture removal and efficiency, clean the filter every two weeks.

Figure 26

FRD030

STEP3. Put the clean air filter back in place and continue to operate the dehumidifier.
