Humidifier Operations
CAUTION ....
"four new Sears humidifier is designed to
satisfy home humidity
requirements
through the principle of evaporation of
water into the air.
After water is added to the tank, the filters
begin to soakup the water and become
totally saturated in approximately 30 minutes; Air is drawn in from the top of the
humidifier by means of a circulation fan
and drawn through the filter. As air passes
through the filter, moisture is absorbed by
the air and then released through the top
of humidifier. (See Figure 2) This moist air
is released in the form of vapor. No water
droplets will enter the home. All evaporation into the air takes, place in the humidifier, which means that the residue left by
evaporating ,_ater is not passed into the
home, but remains in the filter.
Keep your humidifier
clean. While
humidifiers do not cause colds, some
studies suggest that dirty humidifiers
can cause cold-like
symptoms
in
some people. To avoid this, clean
your
humidifier
weekly
with
Humidifier Cleaner 32-7283 and use
Bacteriostat
32-14900.
These are
available at your local Sears store.

WARNING
?r missing,
The humidifiermay be positionedwith the
back (cord exit side), or left side (side
opposite hinged lid) flush to the wall, or
away from the wall. Air needs to enter
through louversin the hingedaccess lid in
order for humidifierto operate at peak efficiency.
j
i
Step I
Place humidifier in area of house where
most humidity is needed, or one which
would likely resultin moist air being circulated throughoutthe house such as near a
cold air return. Moist air (humidity) produced will dispeme into the whole house,
but area closestto unit will have the highest humidity.
Electrical Hook-Up
Step I
NOTE: Due to release of cool, moist air
from humidifier, it is best to direct air
away from home thermostat, it Is best
to position humidifier next to an inside
wall. Hot air registers and cold air from
outside walls can affect the efficiencies
of the controls. Unit should not be
placed where warm air from a hot air
register blows directly on unit.

Humidity Control:
Fill Light:
Adjustthe amount of humidity depending
on user's needs. The humidifierwill turn
on and off as requiredto maintain level of
humidity you select. (See Figure 5.)
MEDIUM setting is recommended but
there are times when low or high amount
of humidity may be preferred. For constant operationof humidifier,CONSTANT
ON allows for the maximum amount of
humidity to be evaporated into the air
continuously.
When unit has a small amount of water
left in it, a orange fill lightwill come on and
unitwill shut off. (See Figure 5.)
IMPORTANT
Water damage may result ff condensation starts to form on windows or
walls. Humidify Control setting should
be lowered until condensation
no
longer forms.
Air Flow Control:
The higher the air flow speed, the more
water is evaporated and released intothe
air. LOW _peecLis the quietest and is provided for conditionsthat may not require
as high an evaporation rate. (See Figure
5.)

Be sure unit is full 0f water and plugged in.
If humidifier stops running, the humidity
level is at the normal requirements for that
setting or it is adjusting to the home conditions. Figure 6 shows approximate relative
humidity percentages which correspond to
the various settings of the Humidity
Control.
Step 2
Set Air Flow control knob to LOW position, (See Figure 5.)
Step 3
Set Humidity Control to MEDIUM posi"_n.
(See Figure 6.)
"NOTE: Humidifier should operate with
l_Jmidity control on the recommended
MEDIUM
setting. If it does not, the
humidity is at a relatively high level. To
test the unit under this condition, turn
Humidity Control all the way to CONSTANT ON and unit should begin to
operate. After unit has been tested, set
Humidity
Control
to MEDIUM
or
desired level
Allow 24 hours for humidifier to adjust.

If humidity level in home is sufficient, the
humidifier will only operate with Humidity
Control set on CONSTANT ON.

CAUTION
Local water purity may vary from area
to area and under certain conditions
water impurities and airborne bacteria
may promote the growth of microorganisms
in the reservoir

cause odors and be harmful to your
health, use only Sears replacement
filters. We also recommend using a
EPA approved bactedostat, 32-14900
