void your warranty.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Smell coming from the dehumidifier
When you first use the dehumidifier and periodically afterwards you might notice
a smell coming from the dehumidifier. This is caused by the Zeolite desiccant material
and is not a sign that the dehumidifier is faulty, nor is it harmful to humans or pets.
The smell occurs because the Zeolite absorbs odours from items like cigarettes,
cosmetics, hair sprays, building materials and new furniture and then when the
desiccant is heated the smell is discharged into the room. This smell has been
described as being like a burning smell or a sour smell. It is normal, will not last long
and is not a sign of a fault.
Amount of water collected
When you first use your dehumidifier it will work harder to reduce the room humidity
to it's target of eg. 55-60%RH (on Auto mode), this is the time when it will produce the most
water and need emptying most frequently. As the room becomes dryer the dehumidifier
collects less water and runs at a lower fan speed. This is normal. When the target relative
humidity has been reached the air coming out of the dehumidifier will not be heated and it
will only be running in low fan mode. This is because there is no need for dehumidification
at this point and the dehumidifier is sampling the air to check the current relative humidity
to see if dehumidification is required.
If you find that you still have condensation on your windows or you need to dry the air
further then using the High fan speed, or the Turbo Laundry mode, will force the
dehumidifier to dry the air further to 40-45%RH. This might well be necessary if you have
single glazed windows or if the outside air temperature drops to freezing.
Ventilation
The dehumidifier must not be placed in a confined space. Move the dehumidifier to a
well ventilated area for example in a hallway, landing or a ventilated room. Ensure that
its not in close proximity to any form of heat source, such as a radiator or appliances
that generate heat (eg tumble dryer or cooker). The air inlet and outlet must not
be obstructed.
