1. Make certain that the power source conforms to the electrical requirements of the Humidifier.
2. The power cord is equipped with a three-prong grounded plug that
must be inserted into a matching receptacle. Under no circumstances must the grounding prong be cut off the plug. Where a twoprong wall receptacle is encountered, it must be replaced with a
properly grounded three-prong receptacle installed in accordance
with the National Electrical Code (NEC) and all applicable local
codes and ordinances. This work must be done only by a qualified
electrician, using copper wire only.
WARNING: USE OF A THREE-PRONG TO TWO-PRONG ADAPTER
IS NOT RECOMMENDED. IMPROPER CONNECTION MAY CREATE
THE RISK OF ELECTROCUTION. USE OF SUCH ADAPTERS ARE
NOT PERMITTED IN CANADA.
WARNING: THIS PLUG IS A SAFETY FEATURE. TO REDUCE THE
RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK AND PERSONAL INJURY, DO NOT
REMOVE, REPLACE, REPAIR OR TAMPER WITH THE ORIGINALLY
SUPPLIED PLUG. IF THE FAN DOES NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY, IT
MAY BE DUE TO THE SAFETY DEVICE INCORPORATED IN THIS
PLUG. RETURN TO AN AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER OR CALL
800-233-0268, MONDAY - FRIDAY, BETWEEN 8:00 AM AND 5:00 PM
EST. IF THE PLUG WARNING LABEL IS MISSING OR DAMAGED,
CALL THE TOLL FREE NUMBER FOR A REPLACEMENT LABEL.
3. Where possible, avoid the use of extension cords. If they must be
used, minimize the risk of overheating by ensuring that they are UL
listed and of the proper gage and length. Never use a single extension
cord to operate more than one Humidifier.
4. Do not insert fingers or foreign objects into the Humidifier. Do not block
or tamper with the Humidifier in any manner while it is in operation. Do
not touch the Humidifier while in operation or just after it has been
turned off, as some parts may be hot enough to cause injury.
5. Unplug power cord before filling or servicing the Humidifier.
WARNING: DO NOT DEPEND UPON THE ON-OFF SWITCH AS THE
SOLE MEANS OF DISCONNECTING POWER WHEN FILLING OR
Rev. A 9/05
NOTE: A few droplets of water may be present

testing prior to packaging and shipment.
OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS
1.

CLEANING and FILTER CARE
Even though your Humidifier will produce approximately 3 gallons in a 24 hour period*, the water capacity (amount of water
the Humidifier will hold at one time) is 1.75 gallons.
You may fill your Recirculating Evaporative Humidifier two
different ways:
A) Fill the Base with cool water to level indicated
in Figure 2A.
B) Replace the Upper Housing on the Base and push Water
Lens down to pour water into the Humidifier (Figure 2B)
until it reaches the level indicated in Figure 2A.
Use a dry soft cloth to wipe the Chassis area, which includes
the motor area. DO NOT use water to clean the Motor or
Switch area. Doing so may result in electrical shock or damage to the Humidifier.
10. Commercial "Descalers" and "Bacteriostats" are available at your
local home improvement center.
OFF SEASON STORAGE
Regular cleaning is necessary to ensure proper and efficient
operation. The frequency of cleaning depends on the amount
of impurities which may be found in the water or how often the
Humidifier is in operation. In either instance, it is recommended
that the Humidifier be cleaned at least once a week.
CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, always turn Control Knob
to OFF (0) position and unplug before cleaning.
11. Do not operate Humidifier when there is still cleaner in the water.

6. Always be sure that the Power Control Knob is in the OFF (0)
position when plugging Humidifier into a grounded 120 volt
AC wall outlet.
5.
To increase the life of your Evaporative Pad, unsnap Holder,
remove Pad and flip over. (Figure 6)
Evaporative Pad life may be extended by cleaning the Pad in
a vinegar solution. To clean Pad, mix one part undiluted vinegar with four parts warm tap water. Soak the Pad in this
solution for 20 minutes, rinse Pad thoroughly with warm water to remove vinegar odor.
DO NOT FLATTEN, SQUEEZE OR TWIST FILTER WHEN CLEANING.
6. Discoloration of the Evaporative Pad is normal after extended
use. The discoloration is caused by mineral deposits in the water, and the degree of discoloration will vary depending upon
the amount of mineral content in the water. When the Pad surface area is thoroughly discolored, or you notice reduced water usage, it is a good indicator that the Evaporative Pad needs
to be replaced. The Evaporative Pad should be replaced at
least once every season.
CAUTION: Do not plug Humidifier into electrical outlet with wet hands,
or electrical shock may occur.
7. Set Moisture Control Knob to regulate desired amount of
humidity. (Figure 3)
HIGH (3): For fast humidification of a large
room. This setting will provide approximately 3 gallons of moisture output in
a 24 hour period.*
MED (2):For normal operation.
LOW (1):For quiet, night time operation.
* Calculations based on ambient conditions of 70° F and 30% relative
humidity in a room of average insulation.
8. Water usage will vary depending upon initial humidity level in the
room. If humidity is low, the Unit will use water more rapidly until the
humidity in the room is stabilized. If the humidity is already near or
above 50% relative humidity, water consumption will be low.
CAUTION: Be careful not to direct airflow towards walls or furniture,
as excessive moisture may cause damage.
9. Refill Humidifier when water level in the Base is low.
10. If you do not plan to use your Humidifier for several days, empty
all water from the Unit. Standing water may provide an environment for the growth of algae.
