PLEASE NOTE
Smell coming from the dehumidifier
When you first use the dehumidifier and periodically afterwards you might notice
a smell coming from the dehumidifier. This is caused by the Zeolite desiccant material
and is not a sign that the dehumidifier is faulty, nor is it harmful to humans or pets.
The smell occurs because the Zeolite absorbs odours from items like cigarettes,
cosmetics, hair sprays, building materials and new furniture and then when the
desiccant is heated the smell is discharged into the room. This smell has been
described as being like a burning smell or a sour smell. It is normal, will not last long
and is not a sign of a fault.
Amount of water collected
When you first use your dehumidifier it will work harder to reduce the room humidity
to it's target of 55-60%RH, this is the time when it will produce the most water and need
emptying most frequently. As the room becomes dryer the dehumidifier collects less
water and runs at a lower fan speed. This is normal. When the target relative humidity
has been reached the air coming out of the dehumidifier will not be heated and it will
only be running in low fan mode. This is because there is no need for dehumidification
at this point and the dehumidifier is sampling the air to check the current relative humidity
to see if dehumidification is required.
If you find that you still have condensation on your windows or you need to dry the air
further then using the High fan speed, or the Turbo Laundry mode, will force the
dehumidifier to dry the air further to 45%RH. This might well be necessary if you have
single glazed windows or if the outside air temperature drops to freezing.

In order to avoid damage, do not wash the machine with water, or let water
drip into the air inlet or outlet.
Cleaning the filter
If the filter is covered with dust, the airflow and the performance of the unit
will be affected. It is recommended to check and clean the air filter every 2 weeks.
1. Turn off the unit and remove the filter from the unit.
2. Clean the nano-silver filter only with a vacuum cleaner.
(Washing will weaken the germicidal effect of the filter)
3. Replace the filter in position.
Before storing
1. Turn off the unit, wait for it to stop and unplug from the power socket.
2. Clean and dry the bucket. Leave the unit to drain for approximately one day.
3. Clean the filter and the unit. Cover the unit to prevent it from
gathering dust. Store upright in a cool dry place.
4. Do not expose to direct sunlight.

TROUBLESHOOTING
The following conditions are normal:
1. The fan is still running about 2 minutes after turning off the the unit.
2. The unit works within room temperature about 1~40ºC. It may stop operation
out of this range or when the air inlet or outlet is covered. (The "CHECK" LED light
will illuminate)
3. The unit includes heater function that could increase the room temperature.
If your Dehumidifier stops working or "CHECK" LED illuminates,
please check the following items first.
When the unit fails to run:
Is power cord unplugged or the power off?
Is "FULL" light on? Is the bucket in the correct position?
Check and replace the bucket.
When the performance seems poor:
Is there any door or window open?
Is steam being generated in the room?
Is the room too big?
Is the filter dirty? Clean it. Refer to the filter cleaning instructions.
Is the inlet or the outlet covered?
When noise occurs:
Is the unit on a horizontal flat and level surface? Move and reset the unit.
IIs the air filter dirty? Clean the filter.
NOTE:
1. If the "CHECK" LED illuminates, turn off the unit, unplug from the power socket,
check and clean the filter. If it is dirty, remove any obstacle that covers the air inlet
or outlet, and wait for at least ten minutes before plugging in and switching back on.
2. Please contact your retailer if the problem continues.
Do not try to repair it by yourself, as this could cause an electrical shock and
void your warranty.
