listed below may result in electric shock, fire or serious personal injury. The warnings,

conditions and situations that may occur. It must be understood by the user that
common sense and caution are a factor which cannot be built into this product, but must

Do not let your child play with this humidifier. Serious injury and
electrocution might be possible. This humidifier has to be operated by an adult only.

3. Screw Water Tank Cap back onto Water Tank. Turn
the Water Tank over and place on Water Basin,
making sure it fits perfectly.
4. Plug the power cord into a wall socket and turn on
the unit by using the Control Knob. The power light
will turn BLUE.
5. Use the Control Knob to adjust the intensity of the mist
output.
6. When the humidifier runs out of water, the BLUE power
light will turn off, and the mist ouput will stop. This
safety feature uses a water level sensor to stop the
heating element once the water level sinks below the
required level in the water basin. A small ORANGE light
will turn on (light will appear near the “2” on Control
Knob) to indicate that the humidifier has automatically turned off. Turn the
humidifier off and unplug before removing and refilling the Water Tank.
IMPORTANT: OVERHEAT RED LIGHT
When the humidifier runs out of water, the BLUE light will turn off and mist will stop. If
the unit has overheated, a small RED light will turn on (light will appear near the “2” on
Control Knob). The RED light indicates that the unit has overheated. Turn humidifier off,
unplug the unit, allow basin and water to cool then empty water in basin. Turn
humidifier basin over and press the Reset Button, with a pen or pencil tip, on the bottom
of the Water Basin. This will reset the humidifier.
USING THE MIST CHAMBER AND MEDICINE CUP
MIST CHAMBER
1. To remove Mist Chamber, slide Mist Chamber Latch to left. Carefully lift Mist
Chamber off of Water Basin.
2. To attach the Mist Chamber, slide Mist Chamber Latch to left and place the Mist
Chamber onto Water Basin. Release the latch to secure the Mist Chamber to
Water Basin.
MEDICINE CUP
The Medicine Cup allows the addition of medications recommended for use with warm
mist humidifiers only.
1. Remove the Medicine Cup from the top of the Mist
Channel for easier filling.
2. BE CAREFUL not to overfill the Medicine Cup.
Overfilling may cause medicine to spill into Mist
Channel. Medicine in the Mist Channel may affect
the operation of the humidifier.
3. Place Medicine Cup on top of the Mist Channel.
4. DO NOT add any medication or other additives
directly to the water.

A NOTE ABOUT HUMIDITY
It is best to keep the humidity level at about 40%-50% of relative humidity.
In cold weather, windows and even some walls may fog or develop frost from
excessive indoor humidity. If this occurs, reduce the mist output setting to avoid
damage from condensed water dripping onto windowsills.
Too much humidity in the room may allow moisture to accumulate on surfaces where
bacteria and fungi can grow. Moisture that gathers may also damage furniture and
walls, especially wallpaper.
To reduce excessive humidity, especially in small rooms, leave the room door open
and adjust the mist intensity control setting.
MAINTENANCE
IMPORTANT: Failure to keep this humidifier clean from mineral deposits normally
contained in any water supply will affect the efficiency of the operation. Customer
failure to follow these instructions may void warranty
DO NOT leave water in Water Tank or Water Basin when unit is not in use as it may
result in the buildup of mineral deposits and bacteria that can inhibit the output
efficiency of the humidifier. If water remains in the Water Tank for more than a day or
two, bacterial growth is possible.
