When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions
should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric
shock, and injury to persons, including the following:
1. Read all instructions before using the appliance.
2. To avoid fire or shock hazard, plug the appliance
directly into a 120V AC electrical outlet.
3. Keep the cord out of heavy traffic areas. To avoid
fire hazard, NEVER put the cord under rugs or near
heat registers.
4. DO NOT place humidifier near heat sources such as
stoves, radiators, and heaters. DO locate your
humidifier on an inside wall near an electrical outlet.
The humidifier should be at least 4 inches (10 cm)
away from the wall for best results.
5. NEVER place humidifier in an area where it is
accessible to children. NEVER use humidifier in a
closed room, particularly where a child may be
sleeping, resting, or playing (a closed room may
result in excessive humidity).
6. WARNING: Do not attempt to refill humidifier
without first unplugging the unit from its electrical
outlet. Failure to heed this warning may cause
personal injury. Be sure to unplug the unit by pulling
on the plug and not the cord.
7. Never place anything over moisture outlet when the
unit is running.
8. NEVER drop or insert any object into any openings.
9. DO NOT operate any appliance with a damaged cord
or plug, after the appliance malfunctions, or if it has
been dropped or damaged in any manner. Return
appliance to manufacturer for examination, electrical
or mechanical adjustment, or repair.
10. Use appliance only for intended household use as
described in this manual. Any other use not
recommended by the manufacturer may cause fire,
electric shock, or injury to persons. The use of
attachments not recommended or sold by the
manufacturer may cause hazards.
11. DO NOT use outdoors.
12. Always place humidifier on a firm, flat, level surface.
A waterproof mat or pad is recommended for use
under the humidifier. NEVER place it on a rug or
carpet, or on a finished floor that may be damaged
by exposure to water or moisture.
13. DO NOT allow the Moisture Outlet to directly face the
wall. Moisture could cause damage, particularly to wall
paper.
14. Humidifier should be unplugged when not in use.
15. NEVER tilt, move, or attempt to empty unit while it is
operating. Shut off and unplug before removing the
water tank and moving the unit.
16. This humidifier requires daily and weekly
maintenance to operate appropriately. Refer to daily
and weekly cleaning procedures. Use only cleaners
and additives recommended by the manufacturer.
17. NEVER use detergents, gasoline, glass cleaner,
furniture polish, paint thinner, or other household
solvents to clean any part of the humidifier.
18. Excessive humidity in a room can cause water
condensation on windows and some furniture. If this
happens, turn the humidifier OFF.
19. Do not use humidifier in an area where humidity
level is in excess of 50%. Use a hygrometer,
available at your local retailer or through the
manufacturer, to measure the humidity.
20. DO NOT attempt to repair or adjust any electrical or
mechanical functions on this unit. Doing so will void
your warranty. The inside of the unit contains no
user serviceable parts. All servicing should be
performed by qualified personnel only.
THIS APPLIANCE HAS A POLARIZED PLUG (one blade is wider than the
other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit in a
polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet,
reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to
install the proper outlet.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO MODIFY THIS PLUG OR DEFEAT THIS
SAFETY FEATURE IN ANY WAY.
F E AT U R E S - O P E R AT I O N S
21. Never place housing under water flow or immerse in
liquids.
22. Do not plug in the cord with wet hands: electric shock
could result.
23. Do not pour water in any openings other than the
water tank.
24. To prevent damage to surfaces, do not place
humidifier under overhanging surfaces.
25. NEVER operate unit without water in the tank.
26. Do not move unit after it has been used until unit

THESE IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
PRE-OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
CONSUMER SAFETY INFORMATION
NOTE: This is an electrical appliance and requires
attention when in use.
NOTE: If moisture forms on the walls or windows of the
room, turn off the humidifier. The room already has plenty
of humidity and additional moisture may cause damage.
NOTE: DO NOT block air inlet or outlet.
Cord and Plug Installation Safety Instructions:
The length of cord used on this appliance was selected to
reduce the hazards of becoming tangled in, or tripping
over a longer cord. If a longer cord is necessary an
approved extension cord may be used. The electrical
rating of the extension cord must be equal to or greater
than the rating of the humidifier (refer to the rating
information placed on the humidifier). Care must be
taken to arrange the extension cord so that it will not
drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be
pulled on by children or accidentally tripped over.
This apparatus meets all requirements of the Canadian
Interference-Causing Equipment Regulations. This Class B
digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-001.
HOW ULTRASONIC WORkS:
An ultrasonic transducer atomizes water, producing
refreshing visible cool mist.
NOTE: A humidity level below 20% can be unhealthy
and uncomfortable. The recommended humidity level is
between 40%-50%.
1. Be sure the humidifier is switched OFF and the unit is
disconnected from the electrical outlet.
2. Select a location for your humidifier, on a flat surface,
about 4 inches (10 cm) away from the wall. DO NOT
place the humidifier on a finished floor or near
furniture, which can be damaged by too much moisture
or water. Place on a moisture resistant surface.

CLEANING / MAINTENANCE
Digital Humidistat Control
Your humidifier is equipped with a digital humidistat that
allows you to set your humidifier to your desired comfort
level by turning the Toggle Switch on the control panel.
To preset a precise comfort level, turn the toggle switch to
adjust the humidity level ranging from 40% to 60% or
Stay On setting for constant humidity. Humidity will increase
or decrease in increments of 5%. The corresponding
Humidity Indicator will illuminate once selected. When the
room humidity level rises above the set humidity, the
humidifier will stop. When the room humidity level drops
below the set humidity, the humidifier will turn on
automatically to maintain the preset humidity level.
NOTE: To shut the humidifier off at any setting, press the
Power Button ( ) until all indicator lights go off. The
humidistat has memory. This means that when you turn the
unit back on, it will be at the last humidity setting before the
humidifier is turned off. However, if the humidifier is
unplugged, the digital humidistat will no longer remember
the previous humidity setting. You will need to reset the
digital humidistat if the humidifier is unplugged.
WARNING: DO NOT move the humidifier with water in the
tank or the humidifier base. The moving action of the water
may activate the water tank’s release nozzle and overfill the
humidifier base. This may cause the humidifier to function
intermittently, or stop emitting mist. Should this occurs, simply
remove the excess water from the humidifier base.
NOTES:
