However, if the unit is unplugged, the control panel will reset to Hi ( ) and will no longer remember the previous mist output level setting. Mist Control/ Humidity Level Control To raise or lower the humidity level, you will need to touch the lower portion (K2) of the control panel where the three separate droplets are located, this will adjust between the mist output levels. Low Mist Output = 1 beep Medium Mist Output = 2 beeps High Mist Output = 3 beeps CONTROL PANEL The control panel has a humidity indicator light and will show differing colours as follows: Amber = Low humidity. (0-30% Relative Humidity Level) Green = Ideal Humidity Level Blue = High humidity. (Above 56% Relative Humidity Level) Screen flashes = Water level is low, refill tank AUTO SAFETY SHUT OFF (G) This Ultrasonic Humidifier has a built in safety device: 1. When the water level in the basin is low, the unit will beep 10 times and the control panel will continuously flash, the transducer (F) will automatically shut off. Refill the tank as instructed in “Operating Instructions” to operate the humidifier again. FILTER USE The Water filter is used to retain minerals in your water and to provide clean moisture. The filter life is determined by the average daily use of your humidifier and the water hardness in your area. The harder the water, the greater the amount of minerals in the water and the more often you will need to replace the filter. It is strongly recommended that the filter is replaced every 2 months, (depending on use), or when white dust is emitted from the unit. 1. Make sure the unit is turned off and disconnect from the mains outlet. Remove Water Tank. 2. If replacing, remove the Filter from the base and dispose of according to local regulations. 3. Remove the protective plastic bag from the new filter. Soak filter thoroughly by immersing filter in water for 5 minutes. Install the filter into the base. 4. Fill the water tank with clean, cool tap water and replace it in the base. Wait 15 minutes for water to pass through the filter before turning on the unit. The 15 minute wait is necessary to ensure that the filter is properly saturated and the water is at its optimal level for best performance.
