Humidifier Operations
Humidified Air is
Then Released
Through the Top
Your new Emerson humidifier is designed to
satisfy home humidity requirements through
the principle of evaporation of water into the air.
After water is added to the bottle and
positioned in the humidifier, the filters
begin to soak up the water and become
totally saturated in approximately 30 minutes. Air is drawn in from the rear of the
humidifier and through the filters by means
of one circulation fan. As air passes
through the filters, moisture is absorbed
into the air and then released through the
top of the humidifier. This moist air is
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.
Dry Air Enters
Through the
Rear
.CAUTION:
Use only liquid EPA
Registered Bacteriostat available from
your local retail store or call
(800) 654-3545 to order. Under no circumstances should you use water
treatment products for Roto belt or
Ultrasonic humidifiers.
CAUTION: Keep your humidifier clean.
While humidifiers do not cause colds,
some studies suggest that dirty humidifiers can cause cold-like symptoms in
some people. To avoid this, clean your
humidifier weekly with cleaners specifically recommended for evaporative
humidifiers.
Assembly
Follow the instructions of this owner’s
manual for proper usage.
Your new Emerson MoistAIR humidifier is
completely assembled for you to use.
Electrical Hook-Up
install the proper outlet. Do not change the
plug in any way.
Locate nearest 120V A.C. wall socket in the
location desired, preferably on inside wall.
Plug in the electrical cord.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or
shock hazard, do not use extension
cords. Humidifier should be plugged
directly into a 120V A.C. outlet.
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. If the plug does
not fit fully in the outlet, reverse plug. If it still
does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to

Location Instructions
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.
WARNING: For your own safety, do
not use humidifier if any parts are
damaged or missing.
1. Place humidifier on a flat level surface in
area of house where most humidity is
needed, or an area 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 if the humidifier is located on carpeting.
2. The humidifier should be positioned with
the back (cord exit side), at least 2 inches away from the wall. Air needs to enter
through louvers in the rear panel in order
for the humidifier to operate at peak efficiency.
Moist air (humidity) produced will disperse into the whole house, but 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 acceptable, the unit should be repositioned in
another location.
At Least 2" From Wall
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

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 an
authorized service personnel before
plugging in.
This humidifier is designed for use with the
water bottle located under the bottle cover
to the left of the fan assembly. The unit
should be positioned where it will be operating.

Water Fill (continued)
Turn Counterclockwise
to Remove “E-Z-Fill Side-Cap
To fill this humidifier, close the control cover
and remove the bottle cover. To remove the
water bottle, lift the bottle straight up and
out of the cabinet.
The water bottle is designed with an “E-ZFill Side-Cap”. Remove the “E-Z-Fill SideCap” on the side of the water bottle by twisting counterclockwise.
Place the opening of the water bottle under
a water faucet (the bottle should fit under a
four-inch clearance faucet). Fill the water
bottle. Use only clear cold water. Solid
debris could make the valve leak.
Install the 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 sink.
2. Press up on valve cap plunger for about
one second to let out a little water.
3. Release the plunger.
4. Listen for air bubbles. Look for leaks
around fill cap.
5. If you hear air bubbles or see leaks,
retighten cap and check for leaks again.
NOTE: If either the fill cap or the valve cap
leaks, water may overflow and leak out the
rear vents of the cabinet.
Wipe off excess water from the bottle.
Position the water bottle back into the unit.
Grasp the water bottle handle, and lower
into the cabinet. For proper operation, the
“E-Z-Fill Side-Cap” must be facing the center 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" until
the bottle is empty. The unit is now ready for
operation.

Operating Humidifier Controls
The operating controls of your Emerson
evaporative humidifier are located on the
top right of the humidifier. The controls are
found under the smoked cover
Fill Light
When the unit has a small amount of water
left in it, the fill light
will come on and
the unit will automatically shut off.
Lift the control cover by placing your finger
in the round cutout and lifting. The cover will
stay open. Now you can clearly see the control area. Familiarize yourself with the controls and their functions as described below.
Humidity Control:
Adjust the amount of
humidity depending on your needs. The
humidifier will turn on and off as required to
maintain level of humidity selected. A medium setting (midway between and
) is
recommended, but there are times when a
low or high amount of humidity may be preferred. For constant operation of humidifier,
rotating knob all the way clockwise allows
for the maximum amount of humidity to be
evaporated into the air continuously.
IMPORTANT: Water damage may result if
condensation starts to form on windows or
walls. Humidity Control setting should be
lowered until condensation no longer forms.
Air Flow (Speed) Control
The unit is adjusted from OFF “
” to high
“
” with a three speed rotary control.
The higher the air flow speed, the more
water is evaporated and released into the
air. Low speed "
" is the quietest and is
provided for conditions that may not require
as high an evaporation rate.
