Humidifier Operation
Your new Emerson MoistAir humidifier is
designed to satisfy home humidity
requirements through the principle of
evaporation of water in the air.
After water is added to the humidifier, the
filter begins to soak up the water and will
become saturated in approximately 30
minutes. Air drawn in through the openings in the lower housing passes through
the filter by means of a circulation fan.
As air passes through the filter, moisture
is absorbed into the air and then
released in the form of vapor. No water
droplets will enter the home. All evaporation into the air takes place in the humidifier, which means that the residue left by
evaporating water is not passed into the
home, but remains in the filter.
This natural process of evaporation helps
eliminate the chance of white dust in the
humidified output air.
Humidified air is
then released
through the top
Dry air
enters
through the
louvers in
the housing
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of
injury, fire or damage to humidifier,
use only cleaners specifically recommended for humidifiers. Never use
flammable, combustible or poisonous
materials to clean your humidifier. To
reduce the risk of scalds and damage to humidifier, never put hot water
in humidifier.
CAUTION: Use only liquid EPA
Registered Bacteriostat available
from your local retail store. Under no
circumstances should you use water
treatment products designed for
Roto belt or Ultrasonic humidifiers.
Unpacking and Assembly
Your new Emerson MoistAir humidifier is
supplied with four swivel casters for ease
of maneuverability. Remove the casters
from the top of the packing material
inside the carton. The casters press into
the bottom of the base at the locations
shown. To make assembly easier remove
the water bottle, housing assembly and
filter and flip the base upside to install.
See steps 2-4 of "Replacement and Care
of Filters" section on page 12 for procedure. Take care not to damage the floats
or base assembly if choosing this method
of assembly. Press casters into location
beside X.
Note: Casters should be installed manually. Do not use any tools to install them.
Once installed return the unit to its original state and proceed to "Location
Instructions.

Location Instructions
WARNING: For your own safety, do
not use humidifier if any parts are
damaged or missing.
Step 2
The humidifier should be positioned with
the back (cord exit side) and left side, at
least 2 inches away from the wall. Air
needs to enter through all of the louvers
in the housing assembly in order for the
humidifier to operate at peak efficiency.
Step 1
Place humidifier on a flat level surface in
an area of house where most humidity is
needed, or one which would likely result
in moist air being circulated throughout
the house such as near a cold air return.
Placing the unit level is very important.
Special attention should be given to unit’s
level if the humidifier is located on carpeting. Moist air (humidity) produced will
disperse into the whole house, but the
area closest to the unit will have the highest humidity. If the unit is positioned close
to a window, condensation may form on
the window pane. If this is not appropriate the unit should be repositioned in
another location.
NOTE: Due to release of cool, moist air
from humidifier, it is best to direct air
away from home thermostat and hot air
registers. It is best to position humidifier
next to an inside wall. Hot air registers
and cold air from outside walls can affect
the efficiencies of the controls. Unit
should not be placed where warm air
from a hot air register blows directly on
unit.
At least 2"
from wall
Note: Be sure humidistat located
approximately 4 inches outside humidifier body on power cord is free from
obstruction and away from any hot air
register.
Electrical Hook-Up
Locate nearest 120V A.C. wall socket in
the location desired, preferably on inside
wall. With the humidifier in the desired
location, route the electrical cord safely
so no one will trip or upset the humidifier.
Plug in the electrical cord.
If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet,
reverse plug. If it still does not fit, contact
a qualified electrician to install the proper
outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire
or shock hazard, humidifier should
be plugged into a 120V A.C. outlet.
Do not use extension cords.
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, this
humidifier has a polarized plug (one
blade is wider than the other). This plug
will fit in a polarized outlet only one way.

Water Fill
WARNING: To reduce the risk of
shock, always unplug humidifier
before cleaning or servicing.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire
or shock hazard, do not pour or spill
water into control or motor area.
If controls get wet, let them dry
completely and have unit checked by
authorized service personnel before
plugging in.
Bottle
Base
This humidifier is designed for use with
the water bottle located to the right of the
upper grill. The water bottle holds 1.9 gallons of water. The humidifier should be
positioned where it will be operating.
To fill the whole house humidifier, grasp
the bottle handle at the top of the bottle
and lift it straight up and away from
humidifier base. Take care not to bump
or damage spring valve assembly on
bottom of bottle.
NOTE: If it is desired to use approved
bacteriostat, follow directions correctly.
The bottle of the whole house humidifier
will hold 1.9 gallons of water.
The water bottle is designed with a Side
Fill Cap. Remove the “Side Fill Cap” on
the side of the water bottle by twisting
counterclockwise.
Place the opening of the water bottle
under a water faucet and fill. If desired,
add liquid bacteriostat to help control the
build up of bacteria and algae. Do not use
solid water treatments. Solid debris could
make the lower valve leak.
Install the “Side Fill Cap” by twisting
clockwise. Hand tighten only.
Check for possible leaks by performing the following:
1. Grasp bottle handle and hold the bottle
upright over a sink.
2. Press up on valve plunger for about
one second to let out a little water.

4. Listen for air bubbles. Look for leaks
around the “Side Fill Cap” and valve
plunger.
5. If you hear air bubbles or see leaks,
retighten the “Side Fill Cap” and
repeat steps 1-4.
Wipe off excess water from the bottle.
Position the water bottle back into the
humidifier base to the right of the grille.
The “Side Fill Cap” must be facing outward. When positioned properly, the
plunger will open and water will flow into
the base. The base will hold the entire
contents of the water bottle. Allow up to
one minute for the water to flow into the
base. Once the bottle is empty, remove it
and refill it as mentioned earlier. Return it
to the right side of the grille. The humidifier is now filled to capacity.
The water bottle may be filled at anytime
as necessary during operation. To benefit
from less frequent filling let the humidifier
exhaust both the water from the bottle
and base before filling.
The unit is now ready for operation.

Humidifier Operations
Check Filter Indicator
The ability of any humidifier to efficiently supply humidity output relies heavily on the condition of the filter. As the filter loads with trapped
impurities found in water it gradually loses its
wicking capability. When this happens moisture output is reduced and the humidifier has
to work longer to satisfy the selected setting.
When such a condition occurs, a flashing
“CHECK FILTER” message will be displayed,
disconnect the power and check the condition
of the filter.
If a buildup of deposits and severe discoloration is evident replace the filter to restore
maximum efficiency.
Check Filter
Humidistat
The humidistat located on the power cord
senses the percentage of humidity in the
air. It causes the humidifier to cycle on
and off to maintain the selected humidity
SET point. The fan will turn on if the
“ROOM” reading falls 3% below the SET
point and will continue to run the humidifier until a reading of 1% above the SET
point is achieved. At this point the fan will
stop. The fan will remain off until the
ROOM reading falls 3% below the SET
point again.
Note: Be sure humidistat located approximately 4 inches outside humidifier body
on power cord is free from obstruction
and away from any hot air register.
Dry Out Mode
When both the water bottle and the base
are empty the red REFILL light will
illuminate and the humidifier will automatically switch into DRY OUT MODE. The
message DRY OUT MODE will appear
on the digital display and the fan speed
will automatically switch to LOW speed.
Note: The digital display will show the
speed the humidifier was operating in
before the REFILL light turned on even
though the fan is operating on LOW
speed. During this time the humidifier will
continue to cycle the fan on and off as
required until the filter is completely dry
thus producing no moisture output. Once
dry, the fan will shut off leaving you with a
dry humidifier that is less prone to mold
