PLEASE SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS Please note that this is an electrical appliance, and requires attention when in use. How Your Warm Mist Humidifier Works Your Bionaire® Warm Mist Humidifier is designed to allow the proper amount of water to flow out of the tank and through the water purification filter. The filter takes most of the minerals and sediment out of the water before the water enters the heating chamber where the Electronic Thermal Control heating element warms the water. Air is drawn in through the grill openings located in the back of the unit and mixed with steam in the misting chamber. The warm mist is then dispersed out of the top of the misting chamber through the outlet grill and into the room. NOTE: A humidity level below 30% can be unhealthy and uncomfortable. The recommended humidity level is between 45%-55%. PRE-OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 1. Be sure the humidifier is disconnected from the electrical outlet and the power dial is in the 0 - off position. 2. Select a location for your humidifier, on a flat surface, about 10cm away from the wall. Do not place your humidifier on furniture. A floor location that will not be damaged by moisture is best. 3. Remove the water tank (see Figure 1). Remove the Water Purification Filter (In some circumstances the filter may be contained within a bag. Please remove the bag.). Soak thoroughly by immersing filter in water for 5 minutes. Then replace in the water tray and wait 15 minutes for water to pass through the filter before turning on the unit. 4. Make sure the water tray is free of foreign objects by removing the Mist Chamber. To remove this stack you must move the Safety Lock (M) that secures both parts in place. (Replace the Mist Chamber over the heating element and make sure that the Safety Lock dial is in the "Lock" position). Filling the Water Tank NOTE: This humidifier holds about 5.5 litres of water in the tank and humidifier base. The humidifier will produce up to 11.5 litres of moisture over a 24-hour period. 1. Be sure the humidifier is disconnected from the electrical outlet and the power dial is in the 0 - off position. Remove the water tank. 2. Twist off the tank cap located on the bottom of the reservoir by turning counter clockwise and fill the water tank with cool, fresh water. Do not fill with warm water as this may cause leaking. NOTE: If the filter or water tray are dry, wait 15 minutes before turning on the unit. The 15 minute wait is necessary to ensure that the filter is properly saturated and the water is at its optimal level for best performance. 3. After filling the tank, replace the tank cap by firmly turning clockwise and then replace the water tank on the base. The tank will immediately begin to empty into the base. 4. Plug the power cord into a convenient and suitable power supply. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS (See Figure 2) IMPORTANT 1. Fill the water tank (see “Filling the Water Tank” instructions). 2. When using the water purification filter in the humidifier for the first time or when the unit has sat dry for any length of time, pre-soak the Water Purification Filter thoroughly by immersing filter in water for 5 mintues. Then replace in the water tray and wait 15 minutes before turning on the unit for the first time. The 15 minute wait is necessary to ensure that the filter is properly saturated and the water is at its optimal level for best performance. Then, carefully lift the water tank and check if the water tray (I) is 2/3 full of water. If not, replace the water tank and wait a further 5 minutes until the water reaches the desired level. DO NOT switch on the humidifier until the water tray is 2/3 full of water. 3. Turn the power dial to the I position. It is normal for the humidifier to take about 3-5 minutes to warm up and begin to mist. 4. The Medicine Cup (B) is located on the top of the Mist Chamber (A). To use, pour designated humidifier medication into the groove. DO NOT add medication to the water tank. DO NOT add medication to the medicine cup when the unit is already operating. Nightlight 1. To activate nightlight( ), move the dial to the on (I) position. 2. To maximize bulb life, turn the nightlight ( ) off (O) during the day. RESET PROCEDURE NOTE: When the water tank is empty and the water in the Heating Chamber is almost empty, the re-fill light (red) will illuminate and the Automatic Shut-off will activate. The unit will not operate again until you refill the water tank and reset the humidifier. 1. Turn the power dial to the O - off position. 2. Unplug the unit. 3. Remove and refill the water tank. Replace the tank onto the base. 4. Wait 15 minutes for the Automatic Shut-Off to reset. 5. After 15 minutes, plug in the unit and turn the Mode Knob to High. The refill light should now be off (if not repeat steps 1 through 4). In about 3-5 minutes, the humidifier will begin to produce moisture. 6. If the refill light remains lit, unplug the humidifier and wait a further 15 minutes. IMPORTANT: If you do not plan to use the humidifier for two or more days, make sure any residual water is drained from the water tank and base to prevent algae or bacteria growth. Replacing the Water Purification Filter The water purification filter is used to retain minerals in your water and provide a clean moisture output. The filter life is determined by the average daily use of your humidifier and the water hardness in your area. Areas with hard water will require more frequent replacement of the filter. It is strongly recommended that the filter be replaced at least every 2-3 months (depending on use) or when the heating element is starting to gather minerals on it. To Replace the Filter: 1. Switch the humidifier to 0 - off and unplug. Remove the tank, drain any water from the base, lift out the used filter, and throw it away. 2. Remove the protective bag from the new filter and pre-soak the Water Purification Filter thoroughly by immersing filter in water for 5 minutes. Then replace in the water tray and wait 15 minutes for water to pass through the filter before turning on the unit. Cleaning and Maintenance Instruction The following maintenance procedures must be routinely followed in order to ensure proper, efficient operation of your humidifier. The unit WILL FAIL if it is not cleaned properly. Regular cleaning prevents scale build-up on the heating element and tray. It also prevents microorganisms from growing on the tray and tank. This ensures that maximum efficiency will be achieved. We cannot over-emphasize how essential proper cleaning is to the maintenance and continued use of your unit and the avoidance of algae or bacteria build-up. Regular Maintenance The frequency of maintenance will depend on the average daily use of your humidifier and the water hardness of your area. It is recommended that this procedure is carried out weekly or more regularly if necessary. 1. Before cleaning, set the control to 0 - off position and unplug the unit from the electrical outlet. 2. Remove the water tank then unlock the misting chamber by rotating the safety lock. Lift mist chamber from the unit's base. Now lift the tray from the base. 3. Empty water and minerals from the tray and wash it through to remove any sediment and dirt that has accumulated in the tray. NOTE: It is imperative that the tray is cleaned properly. The tray is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning (Top rack of the dishwasher only). 4. Rinse out the tank out and refill with clean cool water. 5. Wipe the heating element clean with a soft cloth after it has had a chance to cool. WARNING: If the misting chamber is left assembled to the humidifier, it may take up to an hour before the heating element is sufficiently cool to be touched. This humidifier heats the water producing a clean moisture. Some of the impurities from the water are collected in the Heating Chamber. The Electronic Thermal Control Heating element is lined with a Teflon coating that is designed to provide the easiest cleaning to prolong the operating efficiency of the humidifier. DO NOT use any metal or hard objects to clean the Heating Element. The coating can be scratched if cleaned improperly. Never use detergents, gasoline, kerosene, glass cleaner, furniture polish, paint thinner or other household solvents to clean any part of the humidifier. De-scaling Maintenance • Scale needs to be removed as it becomes noticeable. We recommend using Bionaire® Clean Away - Humidifier cleaning solution. • Apply Solution with a plastic brush to scale surfaces. Let it soak until residue is softened. For cleaning the tank, mix 2 capsules of solution with 2 litres of water. Let mixture stand for several minutes, swishing every few minutes. Drain solution and THOROUGHLY RINSE the tank.
