INTRODUCTION
Your new humidifier adds invisible moisture to your home by moving dry inlet air through a
saturated wick. As air moves through the wick, the water evaporates into the air, leaving
behind any white dust, minerals, or dissolved and suspended solids in the wick. Because
the water is evaporated, there is just clean and invisible moist air.
As the evaporative wick traps accumulated minerals from the water, its ability to
absorb and evaporate water decreases. We recommend changing the wick at the
beginning of every season. In hard water areas, more frequent replacement may be
necessary to maintain your humidifier’s efficiency.

®
Use only AIRCARE or Essick Air / MoistAIR brand replacement wicks and chemicals.
To order parts, wicks and chemicals call 1-800-547-3888. This series of humidifiers uses
wick # HDC12. Only AIRCARE® or Essick Air® / MoistAIR® evaporative wicks guarantee
the certified output of your humidifier. Use of other brands of wicks voids the certification of
output and may void your warranty.

HOW YOUR HUMIDIFIER
WORKS
Dry air is drawn into the
humidifier though the back and
moisturized as it passes
through the evaporative wicks.
It is then fanned out into the
room.

NOTES ON LOCATION:
In order to get the most effective use from your humidifier, it is important to position
the unit where the most humidity is needed or where the moist air will be circulated
throughout the house such as near a cold air return. If the unit is positioned close to
a window, condensation may form on the window pane. If this occurs, the unit
should be repositioned in another location.
Place humidifier on a flat,
level surface. Do NOT
position the unit directly in
front of a hot air duct or
radiator. If placing on
carpet, use caster pads to
ensure level placement.
Due to release of cool,
moist air from the
humidifier, it is best to
direct air away from
thermostat and hot air
registers. Place the unit on
a level surface 2 inches
from the wall.
Front of cabinet
Front caster
Caster pad
Carpet or uneven surface
If positioning on carpet or
uneven surface, place caster
pads under front casters only
to level (if necessary).
NOTE: The use of a buble level will ensure
placement for proper bottle draining.

FILLING
WARNING: Disconnect power before filling, cleaning or servicing unit. Keep grille dry
at all times.
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
NOTE: Fill unit with cool, fresh (preferably unsoftened) water. If you only have softened water
available in your home, you can use it, but mineral buildup will occur more quickly.
NOTE: On initial fill up, it may take approximately 30 minutes for the wicks to become
fully saturated.
CAUTION: Use only EPA Registered Bacteriostat. Under no circumstances should
you use Water Treatment products intended for Rotobelt or Ultrasonic
humidifiers.
®
®
We recommend using AIRCARE or Essick Air Bacteriostat Treatment P/N 1970
when you refill the water reservoir to eliminate bacterial growth. Add bacteriostat
according to the instructions on the bottle. Call 1-800-547-3888 to order.
NOTE: The humidifier contains water bottles. The weight of the bottles in the front of
the cabinet may cause the front casters to sink deeper into the carpet. If this happens,
the water level will be higher towards the front of the humidifier, and lower towards the
back. The water level float (located at the rear of the cabinet) may not sense the water
so the flashing “F” will be displayed and the unit will not energize. If this happens, the
unit will need to be leveled in order for the humidifier to be energized. To level the
humidifier, place the included caster pads under the front two casters of the humidifier
only.
1. Open the pivoting lid of the humidifier.
Remove the water bottles by lifting them
straight up and out of the cabinet.
Notice the water bottles are designed as
right and left hand units. When refilling the
bottles ensure correct placement for proper
function.
The water bottles should rest in the front of
the cabinet. Each “Side-Fill Cap” must be
facing the rear of the unit.
Each water bottle is designed with a
“Side-Fill Cap” and bottom valve cap.
Before filling each bottle check that the
bottle valve cap is on securely.
NOTE: A fill hose, P/N 4400, that attaches to a
faucet can be purchased by calling1-800-547-3888.
5
2. To fill, remove the “Side-Fill Cap” and place the opening under a water faucet (the
bottle should fit under a four-inch clearance faucet). Fill with recommended mixture
of cold water and Bacteriostat (if necessary) only. Solid debris could make the valve
leak. Install the “Side-Fill Cap” by twisting clockwise. Hand tighten only.
NOTE: Both bottle caps have rubber washers in them. Do Not Remove.
3. Check for possible leaks by performing the following:
a. Grasp bottle handle and hold the bottle upright over a sink.
b. Inspect the bottom valve for leaks.
c. Press up on the valve cap plunger for about one second to let out a little water.
d. Release the plunger.
e. Listen for air bubbles. Look for leaks around the“Side-Fill Cap”.
f. If you hear air bubbles or see leaks, retighten the “Side-Fill Cap” and repeat Steps a-e.
4. Wipe off excess water from the bottle.
5. Position the water bottle back into the
unit by grasping the water bottle
handle and lowering it gently into the
cabinet until the bottle sits on pads at
bottom of cabinet. The “Side-Fill Cap”
must be facing the rear of the cabinet.
When positioned properly, the plunger
will open and water will flow into the
cabinet. The water level will
automatically remain at approximately
1/2” until the bottles are empty. Allow
the wick to saturate for 30 minutes
before operation.
ABOUT HUMIDITY
Where you set your desired humidity levels depends on your personal comfort level,
the outside temperature and the inside temperature.
NOTE: Recent CDC tests show that the chances of flu transmission are greatly
reduced at levels of 43% humidity or higher.
You may wish to purchase a hygrometer* to measure the humidity level in your
home. The following is a chart of recommended humidity settings.
*Model 1990 digital hygrometer is available for purchase by calling 1-800-547-3888.
NOTE: External hygrometer readings and humidistat readings may differ. Humidity
levels can vary significantly even in one room.

HUMIDISTAT
This unit has an humidistat located on the power cord. It
senses the percentage of humidity in the air and 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. The
fan will turn off until the ROOM reading falls 3% below
the SET point again.
NOTE: Be sure the humidistat located on the power cord
is at least two inches away from the wall, free from
obstruction and away from any hot air source.
CONTROLS AND OPERATION
Where you set your desired humidity levels depends on your personal comfort level,
outside temperature and inside temperature. A starting set point of 30%
to 40% ROOM humidity is recommended but there may be conditions that require a
different setting.
NOTE: If excessive condensation occurs, reduce fan to a lower speed setting.

FAN SPEED
This humidifier is equipped with a 3-speed fan control. Initially pressing
the speed button will display the current speed setting. Each push
of the speed button advances the mode through the settings of
(HIGH) F3, (MEDIUM) F2 , (LOW) F1 and A (AUTO).
HUMIDITY CONTROL
This button allows you to adjust the humidity to suit your needs.
This humidifier will automatically cycle on and off as required to
maintain the selected setting.
The readout displays both actual (ROOM) and desired (SET)
humidity percentage (%) settings when humidity control button is pressed. The ROOM
readout has a range of 20% to 95% RH. If the room humidity level is equal to or less
than 20% RH the display will show a flashing 20.
The SET readout has a range of 25% to 65% RH and is adjusted in increments of 5%.
Initially depressing the humidity button will display the current humidity setting. Each
additional press of the button increases the setting by 5%. A SET point of 65% RH
operates the humidifier continuously regardless of the ROOM reading. The humidistat
that senses the readings is located on the power cord. Insure that it is free from
obstruction.
REFILL DISPLAY
For maximum run time both the bottle and the base should be filled.
When both the bottle and the base are empty, the display alternates
the room humidity reading and “F” (FILL), indicating additional
water is required.
CHECK FILTER INDICATOR
The ability of any humidifier to efficiently supply humidity output
relies heavily on the condition of the wick (filter). As the wick loads
with impurities 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. This humidifier has a check
filter reminder timed to appear after 720 hours of operation. When the display shows
an alternating “CF” and “room humidity” setting at 5 second intervals it is a reminder to
check the filter (wick) condition.
NOTE: Some areas have high water mineral content causing the need for more
frequent wick changes.
Reset the Check Filter “CF” function each time you replace a wick by unplugging the
unit from the power source for 1-2 minutes, then plug it in again.
Refer to “Replacement of Wick” section below. If a build-up of deposits or severe
discoloration is evident, replace the wick to restore maximum efficiency.
CONTROL LOCK FEATURE
To avoid unwanted tampering with the humidifier settings the
controls can be locked.
CONTROL LOCK ACTIVATION PROCEDURE
After the humidifier functions have been set up, hold the power
button down for 5 seconds. The display will show “CL” for 2 seconds; release the
power button and the control will resume the display of the room humidity. The
humidifier will continue to function with the locked in settings. If buttons are operated
while “CL” is active, the “CL” is displayed and settings are unaffected.
8
CONTROL LOCK DEACTIVATION PROCEDURE
To deactivate the “CL” function simply press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
“CL” will flash at the rate of 1 second on and 1 second off for a period of 2 seconds
and then resume the display of room humidity.
