Energy Saving and Unit Safety Protection Tips
• Do not cover or restrict the airflow from the outlet or inlet grills.
• For maximum performance the minimum distance from a wall or objects should be 50cm.
• Please make sure, while in operation, the water in the water tank does not exceed the MAX level
and does not fall below MIN.
• Keep the filters clean. Under normal conditions, filters should only need cleaning once every
three weeks (approximately). Since the filters remove airborne particles, more frequent cleaning
maybe necessary, depending on the air quality.
• In order to achieve maximum efficiency please place the unit near an open door or window.
Evaporative Air Coolers work with an evaporative cooling mechanism which requires cross
ventilation
• This unit will lose efficiency if humidity in the room reaches a relative humidity of over 60%
• The ambient operating temperature range is from 5°C to 40°C.
If used in low temperatures (as a humidifier)it is recommended to fill the water tank with warm
(but not hot) water.

FEATURES
•

•
•
Spot cooling and humidifier
Low power consumption and no need for venting
Ideal for shop floors or rooms which cannot be sealed or traditionally air conditioned
3 fan speeds and oscillation setting for improved air flow
Directional louvres to create a cooling spot
Easy to use controls
Large 6 litre water tank and cooling pads
Honeycomb Filter for improved cooling and air cleaning
The hot air outlet is positioned in the middle of the unit – this allows for improved performance
with the use of a short hose
OPERATION
The air cooler cools the air by means of evaporation. When water evaporates into the air, the result
is a mixture of air and water molecules. This chemical change requires heat which is taken from
the water molecules, resulting in a spot cooling effect.
• The recommended relative humidity for optimum
operation is 60% or lower. A drier climate makes for more
noticeable cooling.
• The evaporative air cooler should not be used in enclosed
or sealed spaces. It must be kept level and there must
always be water in the water tank. Doors and windows
should be open to allow free air flow. The evaporative air
cooler works best when placed near an open window/air
current.
• The evaporative air cooler can also be used to humidify
dry environments (during cool weather). To be used for
humidification the windows and doors should be closed to
allow the humidified air to accumulate. The evaporative
air cooler is not an air conditioner as it does not use a
compressor or refrigerant. It should not be expected to
cool as efficiently as a refrigerated air conditioner.
• When the product is used for the first time the
Honeycomb cooling media will have an odour, this should
dissipate within a week of use.

PARTS LIST
INSTALLATION
This unit can easily be moved from one room to another. While moving the unit please note that it
must always be kept upright and then placed on an even surface.
• Remove any packaging - keeping the air cooler in a vertical position.
• Make sure all parts are present and unit is assembled correctly - including the castor wheels
(these need to be pushed into place on the base of the unit)
• Water tank: Pull the water tank out from the body of the unit and pour water into the water tank;
ensuring not to fill above the MAX level.
• When humidifying, the water level must not be lower than the MIN water line.
• If you want to increase the cooling effect, you can put ice or the charged ice packs into the water
tank, but be sure that by adding ice or icepacks the water level does not go over the MAX limit.
Empty some water if necessary.
• Make sure filter pad is properly inserted at the back of the unit
• Connect the power plug to a working socket, and then press the power button.
Note: If you want to remove the water tank, please pull out after unit has been powered-off for 2
minutes.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning
ATTENTION: Please shut off the unit and unplug from the mains before cleaning or
performing any maintenance.
Cleaning the surface
Clean the plastic housing with a duster or a soft wet cloth.
Do not use chemical solvents (such as benzene, alcohol or gasoline) as they may cause irreversible
damage. Make sure no water enters the control panel.
Cleaning the water tank
Unplug the power cord, remove the honeycomb filter bracket, and then remove the water tank.
With a cloth (dipped in a mild detergent), wipe the water tank, rinse it with water, and then
carefully place it back in the unit.
Draining the water reservoir and refilling with fresh water at least once a week will help reduce any
mineral deposits and keep the filters clean.
Do not run the unit in Humidify mode with stale water in the tank.
We recommend emptying the tank and refilling it with fresh water if water has been standing in the
tank for an extended period of time.

MAINTAINING AND CHANGING THE HONEYCOMB FILTER PADS
The appliance is supplied with Honeycomb cooling / filters pads. The cleaning frequency for the
Honeycomb filter depends on local air and water conditions. In areas where the mineral content of
water is high (hard water), mineral deposits may build up on the honeycomb cooling filter and
restrict air flow. If mineral deposits remain on the Honeycomb pads, the filter should be removed
and washed under fresh water. We recommend cleaning the honeycomb filter at least every two
months, depending on your needs.
For best results, allow the honeycomb filter to dry after each use by turning off the humidify
function for 15 minutes (with empty water tank) before turning the unit off.
Unplug the power cord, then remove the honeycomb filter frame, and take the honeycomb filter
out of the bracket.
With a mild detergent and a soft brush, scrub the honeycomb filter, clean with water and dry.
End of Season Maintenance:
1. Empty the tank and wash it with warm soapy water.
2. Dry the tank before placing it back in the unit
3. Clean the Honeycomb pads
4. Store the Icepack in the water tank
5. Cover the unit and keep it in a dry place.
