Humidifier Operations
Your new Moist AIR humidifier is designed
to satisfy home humidity requirements
through the principle of evaporation of
water into the air.
After water is added to the unit, the filter
begins to soak up the water and become
totally saturated in approximately 30 minutes. Air is drawn in from the back of the
humidifier by means of a circulation fan
and drawn through the filter. As air passes
through the filter, moisture is absorbed by
the air and then 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.

CAUTION: Use only EPA Registered
Bacteriostat, available at your local
store. Under no circumstances should
you use water treatment products
designed 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 reduce the risk of this,
we recommend you clean your humidifier weekly and use EPA registered bacteriostat treatment.

Location Instructions
humidifier could come apart and fall.
Step 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.
NOTE: Due to release of cool, moist air from
humidifier, it is best to direct air away from home
thermostat. It is best to position humidifier 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.
Step 1
Place humidifier in area of house where most
humidity is needed, or one which would likely
result in moist air being circulated throughout
the house such as near a cold air return. Moist
air (humidity) produced will disperse into the
whole house, but area closest to the unit will
have the highest humidity.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of shock,
always unplug humidifier before moving it. Even turned off, a plugged in
humidifier still has electricity in it.
WATER
RESERVOIR
Use the bottom of the base to lift and carry the
humidifier as shown. Be sure the water reservoirs are properly attached before moving.
IMPORTANT: Keep the reservoirs tight against
the housing between them. If you don’t, the
reservoirs may detach from the base. The

does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse plug.
If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not
change the plug in any way.
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

Step 3
Remove the fill cap on side of the water
reservoir by twisting counterclockwise.
Step 4
Place the hole in the water reservoir under
a water faucet, and fill the water reservoir.
Use only clear, cold water and if necessary
EPA registered bacteriostat. Solid debris
could make the valve leak.
Step 5
IMPORTANT: To avoid spillage and water
overflow in this humidifier:
1. It is very important to fill the water
reservoirs through the fill cap. Do not
fill the water reservoir through the
valve assembly cap.
2. When the water reservoir is full of
water, replace the fill cap and hand
tighten.
3. Grasp the water reservoir with one
hand by the handle over a sink.
4. With your other hand, depress the
spring loaded plunger in the valve
assembly cap for approximately one
second. This will allow some water to
drain out of the water reservoir.
5. Release the plunger, the water should
stop running out of the valve assembly
cap.
6. Listen for air bubbles internally in the
water reservoir. Also, look for water
leaks around the fill cap.
7. If you hear air bubbles or see water
leaks, retighten the fill cap and check
for leaks again.
NOTE: Failure to follow the above procedures may result in unit overflowing with
water.
Step 6
Wipe off any excess water from the bottle.
Step 7
To put water reservoir back in unit, grasp
water reservoir. While holding water reservoir at an angle away from the unit, place
lower portion of water reservoir in base so
the water reservoir flange rests on the
ledge of the base.

Operating Humidifier Controls
Humidity Control:
Air Flow Control:
Adjust the amount of humidity depending
on user’s needs. The humidifier will turn on
and off as required to maintain level of
humidity you select. A medium setting is
recommended, but there are times when a
low or high amount of humidity may be preferred. For constant operation of humidifier, rotating the control knob all the way
clockwise allows for the maximum amount
of humidity to be evaporated into the air
continuously.
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.
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.
Using Your Humidifier
Step 1
Be sure the unit is full of water and plugged
in.
Step 2
Set Air Flow Control knob
to desired
position.
Step 3
Set Humidity Control to a medium position
(half way between
and
).
NOTE: Humidifier should operate with
humidity control on the recommended
medium setting. If it does not, the humidity
is at a relatively high level. To test the unit
under this condition, turn Humidity Control
all the way clockwise and unit should begin
to operate. After unit has been tested, set
Humidity Control to medium or desired
level.
Allow 24 hours for humidifier to adjust. If
humidity level in home is sufficient, the
humidifier will only operate with Humidity
Control turned all the way clockwise.
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.
