Internal Safety Feature

This unit is equipped with a fail-safe switch mechanism that prevents the unit from condensing water in the event the internal reservoir becomes full. If this situation occurs, the unit will signal (BEEP) for 20 seconds, and the (RED) WATER FULL indicator light will flash.

NOTE:

During high humidity conditions, if the rate of water being condensed exceeds the rate of water being evaporated, the water level inside the internal reservoir will activate a float switch mechanism (safety shut-off), causing the unit to stop/cease operation automatically. In this event,

the red “water full” indicator light on the control panel will begin to flash

and a warning beep will sound.

To return to normal operation:

1.Switch the unit off;

2.Place a pan with a 1.9L (4 pts) capacity beneath the lowest drain ports located on the bottom rear of the unit (see Fig. D1).;

3.Open the drains by unscrewing their drain caps;

4.Wait until all the water inside the internal reservoir is emptied, then reattach the drain caps;

5.Properly dispose of the water in the pan;

6.Switch the unit on.

It may take 3-5 minutes for the compressor to re-start. This is normal.

Fig. D1

Direct Drain Instructions

Direct drain operation is intended for floor drain application only. Direct drain cannot be used in stem pipe and / or sink applications:

While the unit is off:

1.Locate the unit as close as you can to the floor drain you will be using for water drainage;

2.Remove the drain cap located in the middle (approximately) of the back of the unit (see Fig. D2);

3.Attach the hose’s coupler directly onto the direct drain’s thread and hand-tighten to seal the connection;

4.Place the open end of the drain hose directly over the floor drain.

You may now start the unit and begin dehumidifying. NOTE: Remember to remove the hose and re-install the drain cap when the direct drain feature is not in use.

The blue indicator light will come on indicating the air-conditioning mode is operational (there may be a slight delay of 10-30 seconds before the cycle begins, this is normal).

Cooling stops automatically when the set temperature is achieved. Cooling resumes when the room temperature rises above the set temperature level. The temperature has no effect on the fan operation.

Therefore, the fan will operate continuously (after the Fig. 16 compressor has cycled off) to maintain optimal

temperature control.

C A U T I O N During air

During air conditioning and dehumidifying modes, if the compressor cycle is interupted (unplugged, power failure,etc.) and reinstated immediately thereafter, (within 3-5 minutes) a “compressor protection circuit” is automatically activated. The compressor cannot operate during a “compressor protecton” condition (this is normal), and it may take 3-5 minutes before the “protection circuit” deactivates.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO START THE UNIT (COMPRESSOR) DURING THIS PERIOD.

Upon reinstating power to the unit all previous settings (i.e. time, mode, fan speed, auto timed programs) are lost and will have to be re-entered.
