For best results, use EZCal and
EZCal Pro cleaning agents to
remove deposits from the humidifier
base. Do NOT run the unit when
using EZCal and EZCal Pro. This
can cause damage to the appliance
and voids the warranty.
Do not submerge base in water! The
cleaning indicator still appears on
the display after cleaning. To reset
hold down the ON/OFF button until
the clean light stops flashing. Thoroughly rinse the base with tap water
and make sure no EZCal and EZCal
Pro residues remains in the base!

Switch off the appliance and
unplug it from the socket before
cleaning it. Clean the water tank
and the base regularly. Use water
only, no detergents.
What is EZCal and EZCal Pro?
EZCal and EZCal Pro are cleaning and descaling agents
recommended for all humidifiers. The decalcification ingredients cleans the mineral build-up in the humidifier base.
There is a sample of EZCal included in the packaging of your humidifier!
Only use 1 packet for 32oz of water. Do not change the ratio. Thoroughly rinse the base with tap water and make
sure no EZCal residue remains in the base. Instructions for use are on the packet. Please note: EZCal and EZCal Pro
are the only recommended cleaning and descaling solution. Do NOT use any other cleaning solutions since it can
damage the product. Any use of cleaning solutions apart from EZCal and EZCal Pro will void the warranty.
EZCal and EZCal Pro descaling agents are available at
selected retail stores and online at www.airoswiss.net.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Cleaning light is on
• Switch off the unit and unplug it. Empty the water in the
base. Rinse the base with hot/clean water. Do not submerge the base! Visually inspect the base for dirt or mineral
build up. If soft water is used, decalcifying the unit every 4
weeks with EZCal and EZCal Pro is suggested. If hard water
is used the unit should be decalcified every 2 weeks. Do not
forget to reset the cleaning light afterwards.
Reset cleaning light
• The cleaning light does not automatically reset. Hold down
the On/Off button (button A in instruction manual) until the
light disappears. The light automatically comes on approx.
14 days after of plugging in the unit.
Use of distilled water
• For best results with your ultrasonic humidifier use distilled
water and remove the demineralization cartridge.
The hygrometer on unit reads a different humidity
level than external hygrometer
• Not all hygrometers are calibrated the same, and most are
off by +/- 5%. Plus the humidity level is not the same in the
whole room. The air circulation and temperature are different in every corner of the room and may affect the humidity
level. The unit should not be placed near a heat vent or a
radiator as the heat will absorb all of the moisture.
Humidity level is not changing or does not reach the
desired humidity level
• If the water tank needs refilling more than once per day,
the unit is working properly and the climatic condition in the
room has an influence on the humidity.
Reasons for low humidity level:
• air circulation is very high (air is fully exchanged several
times per day – the humidifier needs to starts its work from
scratch)
• insulation of home (see air circulation)
• open space with high ceilings (not only the footage of
the room counts but also the height) – high-rise buildings
require more humidification.
• open windows – works similar to air circulation (if it is very
cold outside don’t open the window more than 2 times per
day for 3 minutes)
• big difference between outside temperature and inside
temperature – the colder the air the less moisture it is
capable of holding. The more the air is heated up the lower
the percentage of relative humidity (= the amount of water
vapor in the air, compared to the amount the air could hold
if it was totally saturated)
• position of the unit – if it is placed close to a door, window
or air vent. This increases the air circulation.
No mist / unit is not working / empty indicator
keeps flashing
• Fill up the water tank. Check to see if water is flowing
through the demineralization cartridge (attached to the
water tank cap). If the water tank is full but there is only little
water in the base it indicates that the water is now flowing
through the demineralization cartridge.
• Wait for 15 minutes to allow the mist to come out of the unit.
• If the unit is not working and the empty light is not flashing
you might have set the desired humidity too low and the
current humidity level in the room is higher. That is why the
unit switches off automatically.
• If the empty indicator keeps flashing and the tank is full, the
water is not flowing through the cartridge. Exchange the
cartridge or the granules in the cartridge after 2– 3 months,
in areas with hard water exchange the cartridge after 1– 2
months. However the demineralization cartridge and or the
granules must be exchanged at the latest after 6 months or
the unit does not reach its full performance anymore.
• If the granules are new, see the following instructions:
Make sure the cartridge and/or granules were soaked
for 24 hours, dry granules take even longer for water to
filter through the cartridge and into the base. Next, please
remove a tablespoon of granules from the cartridge, and
throw them away. When there are too many granules in the
cartridge it does not allow water to flow from the tank to the
base.
Unit is running intermittently
• How long has it been since the contents of the cartridge
were replaced? If 2-3 months have passed, it is time to
replace the contents of the cartridge. However the demineralization cartridge and or the granules must be exchanged
at the latest after 6 months or the unit does not reach its full
performance anymore.
• If the contents of the cartridge were just replaced there are
probably too many granules in the cartridge. Remove a
tablespoon of granules from the cartridge and throw them
away. Used granules must go in the waste.
Accessories
Do I need to keep any parts before I replace the
demineralization cartridge?
• Yes, always keep the water tank cap (this is the piece that
attaches the demineralization cartridge to the water tank).
What is the Hydro Cell and how long is it
good for?
• The Hydro Cell keeps humidifiers operating at their highest
level between recommended cleaning*. Good for approximately one to two months, depending on the water quality,
the Hydro Cell ensures the humidifier’s functionality while
providing fresh humidification performance. It needs to be
replaced every one to two months**.
* Refer to the user manual for proper cleaning instructions.
**Depending on the water quality.
Placement of the Hydro Cell
• Please see the instruction manual for detailed placement of
the Hydro Cell.
DO NOT DISCARD! Save for future reference.

White dust is emitted from the unit
White dust particles are minerals that are broken up in tiny
pieces by the ultrasonic process. Solve the problem:
• Soak the demineralization cartridge in a bowl of water for
a minimum of 24 hours. If the cartridge is soaked in the
water tank, the water in the tank and the base needs to be
replaced before using the unit.
• Exchange the demineralization cartridge after 1– 2 months
when you use very hard water, for softer water after 2– 3
months. No matter how hard your water is, exchange the
cartridge at the very latest after 6 months.
• Don’t use water from a pre-installed water softener, or
sodium instead of calcium will be emitted from the unit. Use
distilled water instead and remove the demineralization
cartridge.
• For very hard water areas use only distilled water and
remove the demineralization cartridge.
• Use reverse-osmosis water (R-O water) instead of distilled
water and remove the demineralization cartridge.
