Note: Dehumidifiers working in a basement will have little or no effect on adjacent enclosed rooms such as closets, unless there is enough circulation of air in and out of the enclosed area.

Note: The unit is designed to work in environments with temperatures between 41°F and 95°F

Caution: The unit is designed to be used indoors and freestanding, and not be used outdoors, or be built-in to a cabinet or used under a counter.

Installation Instructions

Your dehumidifier will remove moisture from the air and collect the excess water in a bucket. You can use the EdgeStar dehumidifier to create a comfortable environment and prevent damage caused by moisture to books or valuables in areas such as basements or home libraries. Follow the instructions below to unpack and set up your unit.

1)Carefully unpack the dehumidifier from its box and packaging material, and remove the adhesive tape holding the water bucket and filter in place. You may want to save the box for storing and transporting the unit. Let the unit sit upright for at least 24 hours before powering it on to allow the compressor’s fluids to settle.

2)Place the dehumidifier on a level floor or surface that is strong enough to support the unit with a full bucket of water in a room where the ambient temperature will not drop below 41°F, and away from any heat sources such as direct sunlight, heaters, radiators, dryers, etc.

Allow at least 10 inches of space all around the unit and at least 20 inches of space above the unit.

10”

If you have multiple power outlets in the room, choose one that is near the dehumidifier and that will be able to provide adequate power to the unit. See the power requirements listed on the product label printed on the side, or on the back of your dehumidifier.

3)Close all windows and doors. To be most effective, use the dehumidifier in a contained room. For example, use it in a room with four walls and a ceiling, instead of a partitioned studio, or warehouse.

4)To activate the unit and ensure the warning switches are engaged, remove the water bucket and reinstall it; otherwise, the unit may not work properly.

5)Plug the unit in to a grounded outlet. (Read the Safety Information section.)

6)When first using the unit, press the Power button on the top of the unit and run it in continuous mode for 24 hours.

Operating the Control Panel

Power

Use the

Power button to turn the portable dehumidifier on and

off. The LED indicator next to “Power” will light up. By default when you first use the power button, the unit will begin to operate in normal fan speed mode.

Note: If the unit was powered off, wait at least 3 minutes before powering it back on.

Auto-Restart: If power to the unit is interrupted, the dehumidifier will restart itself in with the last used mode/settings once the power is restored. The compressor will restart after 3 minutes.

 

Auto-Shut Off: The unit will shut off when the set humidity has

 

been reached, or when the water bucket is full, has been removed,

 

or is not in its proper position.

 

 

 

Continuous Mode

Continuous mode dehumidifies the air until the water bucket is full.

 

Use the continuous mode for maximum dehumidification. You will

 

not be able to use the set humidity buttons.

To operate the unit in continuous mode:

1)Make sure the power cord is plugged into a power outlet.

2)Press the Power button.

3)Press the Continuous button. The LED indicator next to

“Continuous” will light up.

4)Select the fan speed by using the Normal or High button.

Fan Speeds

The dehumidifier has two fan speeds. Use the high fan speed for

maximum moisture removal. Use the normal fan speed for quieter

 

 

 

 

operation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Select the fan speed by using the

Normal or

High button.

 

 

 

Setting the Humidity Level

The desired humidity level can be set within a range of 35%

 

 

Relative Humidity (RH) to 80% RH in 5% increments.

 

 

 

To set the desired humidity level percentage:

 

 

 

1) Make sure the power cord is plugged into a power outlet.

 

Note: Relative Humidity (RH)

LCD Display

The LCD Display will show the room’s relative humidity percentage

 

by default. Pressing the

Increase and

will show the set humidity for a few seconds, and then revert to the room’s relative humidity.

Error Codes

In addition to showing the humidity, the display may show the following error codes:

 

E1

– Humidity sensor error

 

Power the unit off, and then unplug the unit for 15 minutes. Plug in

 

and power on. If the issue persists, please contact customer

 

service.

 

E2

– Temperature sensor error

 

Power the unit off, and then unplug the unit for 15 minutes. Plug in

 

and power on. If the issue persists, please contact customer

 

service.

 

P1

– Unit is defrosting

 

Allow the unit time to defrost. The error will clear itself after the unit

 

has been defrosted.

 

P2

– Bucket is full

 

Empty the water bucket and reinstall it.

 

 

 

Water Full Light

The Water Full Light will illuminate when the bucket is ready to be

 

emptied. The light also turns on when the bucket is not installed or

 

installed incorrectly. Once the water is drained, and the bucket is

 

properly installed, the unit will operate normally.

 

 

 

 

Additional notes about the dehumidifier’s behavior:

 

 

Once the unit reaches the desired set humidity, the power

 

 

button will remain lit while the compressor and fan shuts off.

 

 

You will not be able to change the fan speed.

 

If the power to the unit was interrupted while the compressor

 

 

was running, the unit may take a few minutes to start the fan

 

 

and compressor.

 

If the room’s relative humidity is lower than the set humidity, the

 

 

unit will not start the fan and compressor unless you set the unit

 

 

to run in Continuous mode.

Maintenance

 

Clean the dehumidifier and filters regularly to maintain performance and

 

efficiency, and prolong the unit’s life. Be sure to always unplug the

 

dehumidifier from the power outlet before cleaning.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cleaning the unit

Use a soft dry cloth to wipe the body clean. If necessary, use lukewarm

 

water to dampen a cloth to clean the unit. Use a soft bristle brush and

 

vacuum cleaner to clean between the air intake and exhaust vents.

 

Never use abrasive chemicals, volatile substances, gasoline, detergents,

 

chemically treated cloths, or other cleaning solvents that may damage the

 

cabinet exterior.

 

Never spray water directly on the unit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cleaning the pre-filter

Clean the pre-filter periodically to prolong the unit’s life, and keep the unit

 

running efficiently. Lint, dust, and dirt can clog the unit and reduce its

 

performance and effectiveness. If the unit is used in a dusty environment

 

you may need to clean it on a weekly basis.

 

To clean the pre-filter, follow the steps below:

 

1) Power off the unit and remove the pre-filter.
