Coverage Fan Speeds Filters Fill Light Water Level Indicator Auto Humidstat Auto Shut Off HOUSING ,, 758.148080 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. #UMIOIREOAIR • CAUTION ROOM AIR ,/ MOTOR FILTER - DRY t" ! .............

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.

Step2 Carefullypour water into humidifier.(Pour water at left of the controls as shown in Figure4.) OVERFILL HOLE Figure 4 Operating Humidifier Controls I IIII1[ 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.) Figure 5 I_J I I II I i -- Using Your Humidffier I IIII I ] II IIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIII Step 1 Step 4 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. Figure 6 If humidity level in home is sufficient, the humidifier will only operate with Humidity Control set on CONSTANT ON. When Outdoor Temperature is: IMPORTANT -10°F Water damage may result if condensation starts to form on windows or walls. Humidity Control setting should be lowered until condensation no longer forms. Cleaning of Humidifier ,CAUTION To avoid toxic injury, fire or damage to humidifier, use only cleaners specifically recommended for humidifiers. Never use flammable, combustible or poisonous materials to clean your humidifier. To avoid scalds and dantage to humidifier, never put hot water in humidifier.
