Frequently Asked Questions
Why does the dehumidifier
seem to collect less water in
winter?
A.Are the temperature and humidity low?
When the temperature and humidity
are low, the amount of water
collected is decreased.
In winter, because the temperature is lower
than in summer, the effect of the dehumidifier
is greatly reduced as shown in the graph
below.
Although only a little water collects in the tank,
this is not a malfunction.

weather conditions. (This unit
is for indoor use only.)
This may cause overheating,
electric shock and/or fire
caused by an electric leak.
Do not use the unit in narrow,
enclosed places such as inside
closets, between
pieces of furniture, etc.
The floating element will not
be able to detect a full tank
resulting in water leakage, which may
damage surrounding objects or cause
electric shock and/or an electric leak.
Do not wash the unit
with water. Do not
use the unit where it
is likely to come in
contact with water.

The washable photocatalytic filter has a two-layer construction
consisting of a white particle filter and a blue air-freshener filter.
<Particle filter>
The fine particle filter removes pollen* and dust particles.
<Air-freshener Filter>
The special air-freshening agent contained in the fibres of the
air-freshener filter absorbs odorants such as ammonia. The
odor is broken down by photocatalysis renewing the airfreshening properties.
As the filter’s particle and air-freshening properties are renewed
by simply soaking and leaving it to dry in the sun, the air purifier
can be used continuously over a long time.
Cigarette smoke and toxins found in smoke, such as carbon
monoxide, cannot be removed with this filter.
* Diameter of pollen: approx. 10-100µm

Things to be aware of
Room temperature may rise
2-4°C during operation
The dehumidifier does not have a cooler function.
Due to heat produced during operation, the room
temperature may rise 2-4°C. As a result, the unit may
blow warm air, but this is not due to a malfunction.
(During winter, the air may not feel warm as the
temperature is below body temperature.)
How does the dehumidifier
work?
If you pour cold water into a cup, the air around
it becomes cold, causing water droplets to form
on the surface of the cup.
The dehumidifier takes advantage of this
phenomenon to remove moisture from the air.
1 The unit draws air from the room, cools it with
its cooling coil, causing the moisture to
transform into water droplets.
2 The water droplets fall into the water tank.
3 The dehumidified air is reheated by the
heating coil, and then discharged.
The humidity of the room is thus reduced by
repeating steps 1, 2, and 3.

Why
Even in the same room, temperature and humidity
levels may differ from place to place. If the
hygrometer and the unit are in different parts of the
room, the humidity levels are prone to differ.
Moreover, humidity levels differ between places
that have good and no airflow.
Use the reading on the unit as an estimate.

∞ If the room temperature falls below 15°C,
defrosting mode is activated once every 40
minutes (for about 5 minutes) causing water
to drain to the tank. 9
∞ The unit can operate in a room temperature range of 1-35°C.
However, if the room temperature exceeds 35°C,
the unit may operate in blower mode or increase
the airflow. This is because the temperature within
the unit rises causing the protection mechanism to
operate. In order to lower the temperature within
the unit, when using the louvre, point UPWARD.
• If the temperature is below 1°C, the extracted
water is close to freezing disabling the
dehumidifier, and only the blower is operational.
The unit automatically shuts down and
indicates with the lamp and sound that
the water tank is full.
Empty the water tank. 21
