WARNING

Electrical Shock Hazard

1.Plug unit only into grounded electrical outlet.

2.Do not use an extension cord or plug adaptor with this unit.

3.Do not operate unit with filter removed.

Failure to follow the above precautions could result in electrical shock, fire or personal injury.

If the dehumidifier has a serial plate rating of 115 volts and up to and including 7.5 amps the unit may be on a fuse or circuit breaker with other devices. However, the maximum amps of all devices on that fuse or circuit breaker can not exceed the amps of the fuse or circuit breaker.

Notice

Do not operate this dehumidifier without proper time delay circuit protection. Refer to serial plate for proper power supply requirements.

Important Grounding Requirements

Your Dehumidifier will operate on any 115 volt, 3-pronged (grounded), 60 Hz circuit. A separate line is not required, but it is advisable not to overload the circuit with heavy duty appliances such as washing machines, etc. For your safety, this dehumidifier is equipped with a 3-pronged, grounding plug and must be plugged into a properly grounded outlet (Figs. 1 & 2). If your outlet is not of the proper type, it is your responsibility to have the outlet and wiring changed to the correct type. DO NOT cut off the third (grounding) prong.

DO NOT USE AN ADAPTER.

Close Windows and Doors

To assure efficient dehumidification, close all windows and doors in the area where the dehumidifier is to operate (Fig.3).

Plug In

Once you have assembled your dehumidifier and installed it in an appropriate location, plug the cord into a properly grounded outlet as indicated in the electrical requirement (Fig. 4).

OPERATION

Power

Indicator

Overflow

Indicator

Automatic Humidity Control

The humidistat control automatically turns your dehumidifier on or off to maintain the humidity level you select. Allow dehumidifier to reach room temperature, then turn control knob to number 5 (normal average setting). The fan and compressor will run together, dehumidifying the room. If unit does not turn on at this setting, this generally means that the relative humidity is already low and dehumidification may not be needed at this time.

After operating several days at this setting with doors and windows closed, you may readjust this control to a slightly higher number for lower humidity (drier air) or to a slightly lower number for higher humidity (moist air).

If knob is turned to “Continuous Run” then the compressor will run regardless of actual room humidity. If not properly monitored, this setting could cause excess energy usage.

Overflow Indicator

An automatic overflow switch and indicator light are provided to turn the dehumidifier off before the container overflows. When the indicator light on the control panel glows, the water container must be emptied.

To empty the Container:

When the condensate water container is full, the indicator lights up.

1.Turn the power off before removing container. Wait 3 minutes for any remaining water to drain into the condensate container.

2.Tilt the container forward then lift carefully by the handle.

3.Empty and gently re-insert the container.

Important:This water is not suitable for drinking.

Filter Cleaning

1. Turn the power off.

2. Use a vacuum cleaner attachment or brush to clean the front grille.

3. Remove the filter.

4. To clean the filter, wash in warm, soapy water, rinse and shake dry.

Cleaning is recommended monthly, or as conditions require.

Proper use and care of your dehumidifier will help ensure longer life of

the unit. It is recommended to annually inspect and clean the coils Filter and condensate water passages. Expense of annual inspection is the

consumers’ responsibility.

Permanant Drain Installation (optional):

The condesate water can be removed directly from the unit to a drain through a garden hose with the included adapter.

1.Turn the power off before beginning work.

2.Use a screwdriver to remove the knock-out at the back of the unit. (Fig.7)

3.Slide the garden hose adapter (supplied) over the condensate drain through the knock-out hole. (Fig 8)

4.The garden hose should lead to a floor drain or other appropriate drain source. The garden hose should have no inclines or sharp bends. (Fig 8)

Service (Read carefully before calling for service)

If the Dehumidifier Fails to Start

pMake sure the unit is plugged into an operating outlet and the control knob is turned to the number “8” position.

pIf the indicator light (most models) is on, empty the full water container. The indicator light should now go OFF, and the dehumidifierwill begin to operate so be sure to quickly reinsert the empty water container. If the dehumidifier does not begin to operate make sure the float is attached to the water container.

Unit Runs, But Very Little Water is Collected

pThe amount of water removed from the air depends on the relative humidity of the air and the capacity of the dehumidifier purchased. When the air feels damp (high relative humidity), more moisture will be removed and the container will fill up more rapidly. As the unit continues to remove moisture and reduce the humidity in the area, less water will be collected in the container.

pThis unit is equipped with a defrost control , which will automatically activate when needed. When in defrost mode the compressor will cycle on and off and the unit will make less water.

pRoom humidity is low (below 40%).

Sounds

It is reassuring to know that your dehumidifier is functioning properly. These are some normal sounds which should not be a cause for concern:

pAir rushing over air drying coils.

pHissing or thumping - refrigerant is flowing throughout the sealed system and may generate a “boiling” sound right after the compressor stops.

pCompressor may “thump” as it cycles on and off.

pWater dripping from coils onto the drainplate.

pThe humidistat control, compressor and fan “tick” as they turn on and off. Metal makes a similar sound when expanding

or contracting.
