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” 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

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
USING THE PROGRAMMABLE TIMER
Your humidifier is equipped with a technologically advanced
Accuset Plus™ Digital Humidistat. You can set the humidifier to
run continuously in manual mode or set the Accuset Plus™
Digital Humidistat to your desired humidity setting. The Accuset
Plus™ Digital Humidistat will automatically turn the humidifier
ON or OFF, depending on the preset comfort level. The comfort
level ranges between 35% and 65% relative humidity.
AccuSet Plus™ allows the user to program the humidifier to
come on at a preset time, or turn off after a set amount of time.
Setting the Off Timer:
1. Select the Mode and or humidity you wish the
humidifier to run in.
2. While the humidifier is running, press and hold the up
and down buttons simultaneously for 2 seconds. The
display will flash “00”.
3. By pressing the up and down buttons, program the
humidifier to turn off up to 16 hours later in
increments of 1 hour.
4. After setting the timer, the display will return to show
the current room humidity. A light will illuminate to
show that the timer is activated.
5. After the predetermined length of time has passed,
the humidifier will automatically shut off.
Setting the On Timer:
1. While the humidifier is off, press and hold the up and
down buttons simultaneously for 2 seconds.
2. By pressing the up and down buttons, program the
humidifier to turn on up to 16 hours in advance in
increments of 1 hour.
3. After the preset length of time has passed, the
humidifier will automatically turn on Auto Mode HI
speed at 45% for a preset time of 2 hours.
MANUAL MODE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Plug the humidifier into a 120V AC electrical outlet.
2. The display will show the current room humidity.
3. To start the unit, push the MODE/OFF (
) button
once for the HIGH (3) manual setting.
4. Press the button again for the MEDIUM (2) manual setting
and again for LOW (1). After the selection is made, the
display will return to show the current room humidity.
5. To stop the unit, press and hold the button for two seconds,
or keep pressing the button until the display reads OFF (OF).
AccuSet Plus™ HUMIDISTAT INSTRUCTIONS
To take advantage of the AccuSet Plus™ Digital
Humidistat, press the MODE/OFF (
) button until the
speed is set in either the AUTO HIGH (A3), AUTO MEDIUM
(A2) or AUTO LOW (A1) setting. Then adjust the set
humidity by using the up and down buttons. Humidity will
increase in increments of 5%. When the humidity level is
set, the display will return to show the current room
humidity. When the room humidity level rises above the
set humidity, the humidifier will stop. When the humidity
level drops below the set humidity, the humidifier will turn
on automatically.
NOTE: Allow up to 30 minutes for the filter to fully absorb
water and for the unit to produce moisture.
NOTE: The AccuSet Plus™ Humidifier has memory. This
means that when you turn the unit back on, it will be at
the last setting the humidifier was set at.
If you do not plan to use the humidifier for two or more days,
make sure any residual water is drained from the water tank,
base and wick filter to prevent algae or bacteria growth.
EXTENDED RUN TIME SETTING
By setting your humidifier to a specific humidity level, you
are actually also extending the run time. Since the unit will
turn on and off to maintain the set humidity level, less
water will be used on manual setting.
REPLACING THE FILTERS
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
REPLACING/CLEANING
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
will move from the OFF position and
Fig. 2
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 filters need to be changed,
(see Fig. 2).
When the needle is in the light 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 filters. 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. Turn the unit off and disconnect from the electrical outlet.
2. Remove the tank and main housing to access the base tray.
3. Remove wick and discard.
4. Follow the weekly cleaning instructions.
5. Insert new filter.
6. Repeat Operating Instructions steps.
It will take about 30 minutes for the humidifier to reach
maximum output.
NOTE: You can purchase replacement filters (model
HWF75/HF221) at a local retailer, by calling 1-800-5465637, filling out the accessory card, or by visiting
www.holmesproducts.com. It is recommended that a
replacement filter is purchased for uninterrupted use.
