Positioning the unit
A dehumidifier operating in a basement will have little or
no effect in drying an adjacent enclosed storage area,
such as a closet, unless there is adequate circulation
of air in and out of the area.
40cm or
more
• Do not use outdoors.
• This dehumidifer is intended of indoor residential
applications only. This dehumidifier should not be
used for commercial or industrial applications.
• Place the dehumidifier on a smooth, level floor strong
enough to support the unit with a full bucket of water.
• Allow at least 20cm of air space on all sides of the unit
for good air circulation.
• Place the unit in an area where the temperature will not
fall below 50C(410F). The coils can become covered with
frost at temperatures below 5°C(41°F), which may reduce
performance.
• Place the unit away from the clothes dryer, heater or radiator.
• Use the unit to prevent moisture damage anywhere books
or valuables are stored.
• Use the dehumidifier in a basement to help prevent
moisture damage.
• The dehumidifier must be operated in an enclosed
area to be most effective.
• Close all doors, windows and other outside openings
to the room.

OPERATING THE UNIT
P
Using the unit
• When first using the dehumidifier, operate the unit continuously 24 hours.
• This unit is designed to operate with a working environment between 5°C and 35°C.
• If the unit has been switched off and needs to be switched on again quickly, allow approximately
three minutes for the correct operation to resume.
• Do not connect the dehumidifier to a multiple socket outlet, which is also being used for other electrical appliances.
• Select a suitable location, making sure you have easy access to an electrical outlet.
• Plug the unit into a 11 5V- 60HzJ220-240V 50Hz(Refer to the nameplate located on the side/rear of the unit ) electrical
socket-outlet with earth connection.
• Make sure the bucket is correctly fitted otherwise the unit will not operate properly.
Emptying the water tank
There are two ways to remove collected water.
1. Use the bucket
• When the bucket is full, the unit will automatically stop
running, and the Full indicator light will illuminate.
• Slowly pull out the bucket. Grip the left and right handles
securely, and carefully pull out straight so water does
not spill. Do not put the bucket on the floor because the
bottom of the bucket is uneven. Otherwise the bucket will
fall and cause the water to spill.
• Throw away the water and replace the bucket. The bucket
must be in place and securely seated for the dehumidifier
to operate.
• The machine will re-start when the bucket is restored
in its correct position.
NOTES:
• When you remove the bucket, do not touch any parts
inside of the unit. Doing so may damage the product.
• Be sure to push the bucket gently all the way into the unit.
Banging the bucket against anything or failing to push it in
securely may cause the unit not to operate.
1. Pull out the bucket a little.
2. Hold both sides of the bucket
with even strength, and pull it
out from the unit.

2. Continuous draining
Water can be automatically emptied into a floor
drain by attaching the unit with a water hose
(t 12mm) (not included).
• Remove the rubber plug from the back of the unit and store
it in a safe location.
• Insert the water hose into the unit from the drain outlet in the
back of the unit as shown in the right picture. Then lead the
water hose to the floor drain or a suitable drainage facility.

and attach the rubber plug back to the drain outlet.
Care and cleaning of the dehumidifier
Turn the dehumidifier off and remove the plug
from the wall outlet before cleaning.
1. Clean the Grille and Case
• Use water and a mild detergent. Do not use bleach
or abrasives.
• Do not splash water directly onto the main unit. Doing
so may cause an electrical shock, cause the insulation
to deteriorate, or cause the unit to rust.
• The air intake and outlet grilles get soiled easily, so use
a vacuum attachment or brush to clean.

2. Clean the bucket
Every few weeks, clean the bucket to prevent growth of
mold, mildew and bacteria. Partially fill the bucket with
clean water and add a little mild detergent. Swish it around
in the bucket, empty and rinse.
NOTE: Do not use a dishwasher to clean the bucket.
After clean, the bucket must be in place and securely
seated for the dehumidifier to operate.
