3.Keep the cord out of heavy traffic areas. To avoid fire hazard, NEVER put the cord under rugs or near heat registers.

4.DO NOT place humidifier near heat sources such as stoves, radiators, and heaters. DO locate your humidifier on an inside wall near an electrical outlet. The humidifier should be at least 4” away from the wall for best results.

5.NEVER place humidifier in an area where it is accessible to children. NEVER use humidifier in a closed room, particularly where a child may be sleeping, resting, or playing (a closed room may result in excessive humidity).

CONSUMER SAFETY INFORMATION

THIS PRODUCT IS EQUIPPED WITH A POLARIZED PLUG (a plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact qualified personnel to install the

proper outlet.

DO NOT DEFEAT THE SAFETY PURPOSE OF THIS POLARIZED PLUG IN ANY WAY.

The length of cord used on this appliance was selected to reduce the hazards of becoming tangled in, or tripping over a longer cord. If a longer cord is necessary an approved extension cord may be used. The electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to or greater than the rating of the humidifier. Care must be taken to arrange the extension cord so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or accidentally tripped over.

HOW YOUR COOL MOISTURE HUMIDIFIER WORKS

Your Bionaire® Cool Moisture humidifier draws dry air through the rear air intake grill area. This air is then passed through 4 moisture–laden wick filters which retains the minerals and deposits. The resulting moist air is directed

back into the room from the top air grill.

Tip: This humidification system provides a cool, invisible moisture output. It is normal not to see the mist.

PRE-OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

1.Be sure the humidifier is switched off and disconnected from the electrical outlet.

2.Select a location for your humidifier, on a flat surface, about 4" away from the wall. Do not place your humidifier on furniture, a floor location that will not be
