Things to be aware of
Room temperature may rise
2-4°C during operation
The dehumidifier does not have a cooler function. Due
to heat produced during operation, the room
temperature may rise 2-4°C. As a result, the unit may
blow warm air, but this is not due to a malfunction.
How does the dehumidifier
work?
If you pour cold water into a cup, the air around
it becomes cold, causing water droplets to form
on the surface of the cup.
The dehumidifier takes advantage of this
phenomenon to remove moisture from the air.
Dried (warm) air
3
Cooling coil
The humidity reading on the unit
may differ from a hygrometer in
the same room
Even in the same room, temperature and humidity levels
may differ from place to place. If the hygrometer and
the unit are in different parts of the room, the humidity
levels are prone to differ.
Moreover, humidity levels differ between places that
have good and no airflow.
Use the reading on the unit as an estimate.
Low temperature/humidity
decreases dehumidifying effects
In winter, the temperature is low and the air is dry,
therefore making dehumidifying impossible.
* If temperatures are low, but humidity is high due to
snow or rain, operating the unit in Low Temp mode will
yield better results than Low mode.

Compressor

Water tank
1 The unit draws air from the room, cools it with
its cooling coil, causing the moisture to
transform into water droplets.
2 The water droplets fall into the water tank.
3 The dehumidified air is reheated by the
heating coil, and then discharged.
The humidity of the room is thus reduced by
repeating steps 1, 2, and 3.
How is mildew growth
suppressed?
Mildew is unable to produce new spores if dried
as mycelia. The Mildew Guard feature applies
this principle. (However, the spores themselves
are resilient to dry conditions.)

Information
¡Laundry
∞ Empty the water tank before operating the unit. The unit may stop before the clothes are dry due to a full tank.
∞ Do not use in conjunction with OFF Timer mode. The unit may stop before the clothes are dry.
∞ The following conditions prevent clothes from drying well:
Room temperature below 15°C, large volume of laundry; laundry not spaced well; clothes of thick fabric
2
and spacious room.
∞ When the room temperature is below 5°C, less water evaporates from the clothes, decreasing the
amount of temperature change. Therefore the unit is unable to detect the state of the laundry and
2
may turn off after 1 hour.
∞ Restart the unit if it turns off before the laundry dries (except when the temperature is below 5°C). 2

Troubleshooting
¡ For the symptoms listed below, refer to the remedies listed right.
Symptom
Cause/Remedy
The unit blows warm air
¡ Dehumidified air passes through heating coils causing it to
warm (this unit is not a cooler). This is not a malfunction.
Water does not collect in
the water tank (minimal
dehumidifying results)
¡ Check to see if the temperature/humidity is low.
Low room temperature/humidity reduces dehumidifying
effectiveness. Confirm the current humidity reading (in winter,
the air is dry reducing dehumidifying effects to zero). This is
not a malfunction.
