If the unit is tipped over while filled with water, immediately unplug the unit and right it. Allow the unit to dry for 24 hours prior to operating it to minimize the risk of damaging the circuit board.

Do not put any foreign objects into the unit or water reservoir

Clean the exterior of the unit with a soft cloth and a mild soapy water solution only

If the unit becomes noisier as it gets older and/or the airflow becomes less robust, try cleaning the fabric water curtain and pre-filter

Make sure the unit has adequate ventilation around it to ensure airflow both into the rear of the unit and out of the front of the unit

Control Panel and Display

Note: the buttons on the remote control have the same functionality as those on the main control panel

ON/OFFthis button turns the unit on or off

-3-

-4-

TIMEReach time this button is pressed, the digit in the middle of the display increments up by 1. The digit in the display corresponds to the amount of time (in hours) that the unit will run before shutting itself off. If you do not select a timer setting, the unit will run continuously

COOLER/HUMIDIFIERthis button turns on or off the cooling function. When the “COOLER/HUMIDIFIER” light on the control panel is lit, the unit pumps water from its reservoir over the fabric water curtain. As air is drawn past this water, the endothermic effects of evaporation result in cooling

SWINGthis button turns on or off the oscillation function. When the unit oscillates, the base remains still and the upper part of the tower turns back and forth, directing airflow around the room

SPEEDthis button adjust the speed. There are three speed settings for airflow. Note that when the unit is initially turned on, it starts on medium speed and changes to low speed automatically

MODEthis button toggles the airflow functions. There are three functions:

o Normal/manual- this mode, represented by three horizontal wavy lines, allows you to manually set the airflow speed

o Natural/variable- this mode, represented by a mountain, automatically shifts the airflow speeds between the three settings

o Sleep- this mode, represented by “ZZZ”, operates like the Normal/manual mode, but the airflow speed gradually decreases over a period of 1-2 hours, and the unit eventually turns itself off. The higher the initial airflow setting, the longer the unit runs before shutting off, and the greater the different airflow speeds the unit cycles through prior to shutting off

-ION- this button toggles the ionizer on and off. The ionizer cleans the air that passes through the unit

Unpacking and first using the unit

Carefully open the box(es) and take the unit out. Remove all packing/plastic bags, etc.

Set the unit upright

Plug the unit in

Open the water port and fill the unit with water. Do not over-fill the unit.

Close the water port door

Turn the unit on with the ON/OFF button and select your

desired settings

Note: the unit includes two ice boxes. To use them, fill them with water and freeze them. Then put them into the unit’s water reservoir. You may use them one at a time or concurrently.

Draining the unit

If you ever need to drain the unit, first make sure the unit is in an appropriate place for drainage

Remove the drain plug from the rear of the unit

Allow the water to drain out

Reinstall the drain plug

Cleaning

Pre-filter- depending on the environment, the pre-filter may require cleaning every two weeks to every two months or more. The easiest way to clean the pre-filter is to vacuum it with a brush attachment.

If the pre-filter is exceptionally dirty, you may remove it from the unit (unplug the unit first) and wash it in a mild soap and water solution. Rinse it thoroughly and allow it to dry completely before reinstalling.

Fabric water curtain- this should also be cleaned every two weeks to every two months, again depending upon the environment. Unplug the unit, remove the pre-filter, and gently remove the fabric water curtain (it should pull off the fastening strips). Wash it in a mild soap and water solution. Rinse it thoroughly and allow it to dry completely before reinstalling.

Water tank- if the tank becomes dirty, mildewy, or acquires hard water deposits, unplug the unit, remove the water port door and carefully clean the inside of the tank with a soft cloth and a mild soap and water solution. Rinse out the solution and drain the unit as best you can, but take care not to get any of the unit’s electronics wet.

Exterior of the unitunplug the unit. Carefully wash it with a mild soap and water solution and a soft cloth. Dry the unit with a soft cloth.
