5. Technical points
5.1 The technical points of the new products
1) Drying inside
During dehumidification, moisture accumulates on the heat exchanger. If left, this can lead to mildew
growth, which is circulated around the room with the air discharge. Drying inside starts automatically after
operation, and dries any moisture inside the unit.
2) Powerful 16-litre/day dehumidifying
The uncomfortable damp feeling caused by humidity is something that needs to be removed quickly.
Mildew can grow and damage the home or clothing when closets, dressing rooms, shoe cabinets, and
other spaces where humidity is prone to collect are not dehumidified. A single high-capacity unit is
effective in dehumidifying and drying various locations throughout the home, quickly moving from one
point to the next.
3) Room humidity and sensible temperature comfortably controlled
The EASY DEHUMIDIFYING mode controls humidity according to room temperature. If the room
temperature rises during dehumidification, use CIRCULATION mode (*1) to lower the sensible
temperature.
*1 The automatic dehumidification and blower modes operate alternately controlling the sensible
temperature and humidity to a comfortable level (50%–60%).

5.2 Operation and Performance
Working temperature
Defrosting
Dehumidification is possible with a room
temperature of 1 – 35°C. If the room temperature
exceeds 35°C, however, the temperature inside the
unit will increase; therefore, the protective device
may activate and halt operation in some cases. For
this reason, the louvres should be aimed upward.
• If the room temperature is lower than 1˚C, there is
danger of the removed water freezing, making
dehumidification impossible, so the fan will start
operating.
The unit may display
during operation and stop air
flow, followed by a change in the operating noise. The
unit has stopped the airflow, and is melting internal frost
into the water tank. The unit will resume automatically
when the defrost operation completes.
Wait for 3 minutes before dehumidifying
Room temperature may rise 2-4°C during operation
The dehumidifier will not operate for 3 minutes
when the unit is turned on immediately after being
turned off or plugged in. (In order to protect the
compressor.)
When dehumidifying begins, the operational noise
increases. This is not a malfunction.
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.
This operation will be performed automatically when
the room temperature is approximately 15°C or
lower. (When humidity is high, this will occur
approximately once every 40 minutes for 5 – 10
minutes.)
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.

The humidity reading on the unit
may differ from a hygrometer in

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.

5.4 Performance curve
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 effects of the dehumidifier decrease
dramatically as shown in the graph below.
Although less water collects in the tank, this is not a malfunction.
* If the temperature is low, but the humidity is high due to snow or rain, operating the unit in LOW TEMP
mode will yield better results than in LOW mode.

11. Troubleshooting
¡ For the symptoms listed below, refer to the remedies listed right.
Symptom
Cause/Remedy
The unit blows warm air
¡ Dehumidified air passes through heating coils causing it to
warm (this unit is not a cooler). This is not a malfunction.
Water does not collect in
the water tank (minimal
dehumidifying results)
¡ Check to see if the temperature/humidity is low.
Low room temperature/humidity reduces dehumidifying
effectiveness (in winter, the air is cooler reducing the amount of
water collected).
