PLEASE READ AND SAVE
THESE IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Thank you for choosing a Holmes Cool Mist console humidifier. To
ensure the best performance from your humidifier, please read and
save the following 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.
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. 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.
HOW COOL MIST WORKS
Your Holmes Cool Mist humidifier draws dry air through the rear air intake
grill area. This air is then passed through a moisture–laden wick filter, which
retains the minerals and deposits in the water. The resulting moist air is
directed back into the room from the top air grill.
NOTE: This humidification system provides a cool, invisible moisture output.
It is normal not to see the mist.
NOTE: A humidity level below 20% can be unhealthy and uncomfortable.
The recommended humidity level is between 40%-50%.

pouch in the box. Turn the base upside down, and locate the holes at each
of the four corners on the underside.
Note: You will notice that there are two different shaped wheels. Two
of the 4 wheels are stationary wheels and two are swivel type wheels.
The stationary wheels are identified by a flat top surface, while the swivel

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS - STORAGE
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
REPLACING THE FILTER
With housing placed properly onto the base, the filter installed correctly, the
tanks filled and the plug correctly inserted in the outlet, you are now ready
to operate the humidifier.
NOTE: The HM3600 produces clean, cool, INVISIBLE moisture.It is normal not
to see the moisture.
1. Turn the Control Knob to the HI (III) position and turn the Humidistat
to HI (III).
2. Allow up to 30 minutes for the filter to fully absorb water and the unit
to produce the maximum moisture output.
3. Adjust the 3-speed Humidity Control Knob and the Humidistat as desired.
4. The Automatic Humidistat Control is designed to operate between
25% and 60% Relative Humidity range. The recommended setting is
between 40% and 50%. When the humidity level in the room is below
the level you have set, the humidifier will operate to produce moisture.
When the set humidity level in the room is reached, the humidifier will
stop. When the humidity again drops below the set level, the unit will
automatically start and produce moisture again.
NOTE: We recommend the use of the hygrometer that came with your
humidifier, which reads the actual humidity level in your room. A humidity
level below 20% can be unhealthy and uncomfortable. The recommended
humidity level is between 40% and 50%.
5. When the water level is low, the refill light will illuminate to indicate the
unit needs refilling. Shut off and unplug the unit.
NOTE: THE FAN WILL CONTINUE TO RUN TO ALLOW THE HUMIDIFIER TO DRY
OUT AND PREVENT ALGAE GROWTH.
6. Before refilling, follow Daily Maintenance Instructions and check to see if
the filter needs replacing by comparing it to the Color-Coded Filter Change
(located on the side of the humidifier housing) with the filter wear.
7. Refill water tanks.
8. Plug into the electrical outlet. Turn the Humidity Control Knob to the
HI (III), MED (II), or LOW (I) setting.
NOTE: If moisture forms on the walls or windows, turn off the humidifier.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
Through normal use, waterborne minerals and sediment become trapped
in the wick filter. The harder your water, the greater the amount of minerals
in the water, and the more often you will need to change your filter.
You will be able to monitor the life of the filter in your humidifier
by checking the FilterCheck™ Indicator. When the unit is off, the
FilterCheck™ Indicator will read in the OFF ( ) position. After 60 minutes
of use, FilterCheck™ Indicator (refer
to fig. 4 for close-up of indicator)
Figure 4
will move from the OFF ( ) position
and indicate your filter condition.
A brand new filter will register in
the blue section reading GOOD filter.
After frequent use of your humidifier,
the FilterCheck™ Indicator will let
you know when the filter needs to
be changed.
When the needle is in the red (CHANGE) section, this means the proper
amount of moisture is not getting into your air due to the excessive minerals
and sediment that have become trapped on your filter. At this point, you
should replace your filter. It is important to change your filter as indicated
to obtain stated performance level.
To replace the filter, follow the steps below.
1. Be sure the Control Knob is in the OFF ( ) position and the unit is
disconnected from the electrical outlet.
2. Remove the tank and main housing to access the base tray.
3. Discard the old filter and follow weekly cleaning instructions.
4. Insert a new filter into the filter support in the base.
5. Replace the main housing and then the tank.
6. Repeat Operating Instruction steps.
It will take about 30 minutes for the humidifier to reach maximum output.
You can obtain a new filter by calling 1-800-5-HOLMES in the USA or by
visiting your nearest retailer or authorized service center. This humidifier
takes model HWF75 replacement filter.
Humidifiers provide comfort by adding moisture to dry, heated indoor air.
To benefit most from the humidifier and avoid product misuse, follow all
instructions carefully. Please note that this is an electrical appliance and
requires attention when in use.
In addition, if you do not follow the recommended care and maintenance
guidelines, micro-organisms may be able to grow in the water within the
Water Tank. You must routinely follow the cleaning procedures that follow
in order to ensure proper, efficient operation of your humidifier. Proper
maintenance and cleaning is essential to the continued performance of
your unit and the avoidance of algae or bacteria build-up.
USING THE HUMIDISTAT
The Humidistat feature allows you to set and maintain the humidity level
you wish for your room to maintain. The Humidistat setting is designed to
operate between 25% and 65% relative humidity range. The recommended
setting is 40-50%.
Turn the Humidistat clockwise as far as it will turn to achieve the highest
setting. In this setting, the humidifier will run constantly, and produce the
greatest amount of moisture.
To lower your desired humidity level, simply turn the Humidistat
counterclockwise to choose your setting.
When the humidity in the room is less than the level you have set,
the humidifier will continue to produce moisture. Once the set humidity
level has been achieved, the fan will turn off. When the room humidity
drops below your set level, the unit will automatically begin producing
moisture again.
Depending on the size of your room and your personal comfort, you
will set your humidistat at different levels. If condensation forms on your
windows or walls, or your measured room humidity reads above 50% by use
of a hygrometer, turn off your humidifier, or lower your Humidistat level.

stop. When the humidity again drops below the set level, the unit will
automatically start and produce moisture again.
NOTE: We recommend the use of the hygrometer that came with your
humidifier, which reads the actual humidity level in your room. A humidity
level below 20% can be unhealthy and uncomfortable. The recommended
humidity level is between 40% and 50%.
5. When the water level is low, the refill light will illuminate to indicate the
unit needs refilling. Shut off and unplug the unit.
NOTE: THE FAN WILL CONTINUE TO RUN TO ALLOW THE HUMIDIFIER TO DRY
OUT AND PREVENT ALGAE GROWTH.
6. Before refilling, follow Daily Maintenance Instructions and check to see if
the filter needs replacing by comparing it to the Color-Coded Filter Change
(located on the side of the humidifier housing) with the filter wear.
7. Refill water tanks.
8. Plug into the electrical outlet. Turn the Humidity Control Knob to the
HI (III), MED (II), or LOW (I) setting.
NOTE: If moisture forms on the walls or windows, turn off the humidifier.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
Through normal use, waterborne minerals and sediment become trapped
in the wick filter. The harder your water, the greater the amount of minerals
in the water, and the more often you will need to change your filter.
You will be able to monitor the life of the filter in your humidifier
by checking the FilterCheck™ Indicator. When the unit is off, the
FilterCheck™ Indicator will read in the OFF ( ) position. After 60 minutes
of use, FilterCheck™ Indicator (refer
to fig. 4 for close-up of indicator)
Figure 4
will move from the OFF ( ) position
and indicate your filter condition.
A brand new filter will register in
the blue section reading GOOD filter.
After frequent use of your humidifier,
the FilterCheck™ Indicator will let
you know when the filter needs to
be changed.
When the needle is in the red (CHANGE) section, this means the proper
amount of moisture is not getting into your air due to the excessive minerals
and sediment that have become trapped on your filter. At this point, you
should replace your filter. It is important to change your filter as indicated
to obtain stated performance level.
To replace the filter, follow the steps below.
1. Be sure the Control Knob is in the OFF ( ) position and the unit is
disconnected from the electrical outlet.
2. Remove the tank and main housing to access the base tray.
3. Discard the old filter and follow weekly cleaning instructions.
4. Insert a new filter into the filter support in the base.
5. Replace the main housing and then the tank.
6. Repeat Operating Instruction steps.
It will take about 30 minutes for the humidifier to reach maximum output.
You can obtain a new filter by calling 1-800-5-HOLMES in the USA or by
visiting your nearest retailer or authorized service center. This humidifier
takes model HWF75 replacement filter.
Humidifiers provide comfort by adding moisture to dry, heated indoor air.
To benefit most from the humidifier and avoid product misuse, follow all
instructions carefully. Please note that this is an electrical appliance and
requires attention when in use.
In addition, if you do not follow the recommended care and maintenance
guidelines, micro-organisms may be able to grow in the water within the
Water Tank. You must routinely follow the cleaning procedures that follow
in order to ensure proper, efficient operation of your humidifier. Proper
maintenance and cleaning is essential to the continued performance of
your unit and the avoidance of algae or bacteria build-up.
USING THE HUMIDISTAT
The Humidistat feature allows you to set and maintain the humidity level
you wish for your room to maintain. The Humidistat setting is designed to
operate between 25% and 65% relative humidity range. The recommended
setting is 40-50%.
Turn the Humidistat clockwise as far as it will turn to achieve the highest
setting. In this setting, the humidifier will run constantly, and produce the
greatest amount of moisture.
To lower your desired humidity level, simply turn the Humidistat
counterclockwise to choose your setting.
When the humidity in the room is less than the level you have set,
the humidifier will continue to produce moisture. Once the set humidity
level has been achieved, the fan will turn off. When the room humidity
drops below your set level, the unit will automatically begin producing
moisture again.
Depending on the size of your room and your personal comfort, you
will set your humidistat at different levels. If condensation forms on your
windows or walls, or your measured room humidity reads above 50% by use
of a hygrometer, turn off your humidifier, or lower your Humidistat level.

PLEASE READ AND SAVE
THESE IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Thank you for choosing a Holmes Cool Mist console humidifier. To
ensure the best performance from your humidifier, please read and
save the following 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.
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. 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.
HOW COOL MIST WORKS
Your Holmes Cool Mist humidifier draws dry air through the rear air intake
grill area. This air is then passed through a moisture–laden wick filter, which
retains the minerals and deposits in the water. The resulting moist air is
directed back into the room from the top air grill.
NOTE: This humidification system provides a cool, invisible moisture output.
It is normal not to see the mist.
NOTE: A humidity level below 20% can be unhealthy and uncomfortable.
The recommended humidity level is between 40%-50%.
