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.



This device complies with Part15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subjected to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.


Your Bionaire® Cool Moisture humidifier draws dry air through the front air intake grill area. This air is then passed through a moisture–laden wick filter 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.


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 damaged by moisture is best.

3.Remove the water tank, by holding the tank handle and lifting straight upwards.

1.Twist off the water tank cap located on the bottom of the water reservoir by turning counter clockwise and fill the water tank with cool, fresh water. Do not fill with warm water as this may cause leaking.

2.After filling the water tank, replace the water tank cap by firmly turning clockwise and then replace the water reservoir on the base. The water reservoir will immediately begin to empty into the base.

2.Plug unit into outlet. The first time the unit is plugged in, it will

beep every two seconds until it is synced with the remote. To sync unit with remote follow the below steps:

Unlock remote. (This must be done before each use of the remote) To Unlock remote, hold down the mode button for 2 seconds until the lock symbol disappears on the screen. Once the remote is unlocked, press the mode button again and the unit will quickly beep 5 times telling the user the signal was received. If you have more than one humidifier, DO NOT SYNC more than 1 unit at once.

Battery Replacement: If the batteries are running low on power, a low battery indicator will appear on the remote. Low batteries will affect transmission distance and the screen contrast. We recommend replacing batteries immediately.

Remote Distance: The transmission distance for this remote is approximately 30ft. Do not use farther than 30ft. from the appliance. Remote must be used in same room as appliance.

Communication Safety Check: Every minute while in Auto mode, the Galileo™ Center communicates with the base unit. If the Galileo™ Center goes out of range and/or has low batteries, the communication will stop, and after 8 minutes of noncommunication the unit will shut off.
