b. Before using the evaporative cooler for the first time, we recommend cleaning the tank with a
warm water and light detergent solution.
c. Fill the tank with clean water. Pay attention to the water level indicator located on the front of the
cooler to avoid overfilling the evaporative cooler. The approximate tank size of the EC110S is 1.5
gallons (5.5 liters).
d. Replace the tank back onto the back of the unit. Turn the water tank knob clockwise 90°. This
locks the water tank back into place.
Using the Ice Pack

The Control & Display Panels
ON/SPEED & OFF Buttons
a. After the tank is filled with water, connect the evaporative cooler to a power outlet. The unit will
beep twice, indicating that the power source is connected. The cooler will be in standby mode at
this time. Press the ON/SPEED button to turn on the evaporative cooler.
b. To adjust the fan speed, press the ON/SPEED button again until your desired speed has been
reached. The current fan speed will be indicated on the display panel. To turn the unit off and
revert back to standby mode, press the OFF button.
COOL/HUMIDIFIER Button
a. After the desired fan speed has been selected, press the COOLER/HUMIDIFIER button to
activate the cooling/humidifying function. This powers the water pump and will cool and add
moisture to the air at the same time. The blue cooling icon will also be visible on the display
panel.
b. Please note that if the initial fan speed is set to 3, the unit will revert back to the second speed
setting for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, the unit will automatically switch to the third fan speed.
This is to allow the cooling pad to be thoroughly absorbed with water, which results in optimized
cooling. The cooler will not revert back to other speeds if the initial fan speed was set to either 1
or 2.
MODE Button
a. The EC110S has 2 different automatic airflow modes. Setting the airflow mode is optional.
b. To set the airflow mode, press the MODE button.
1. Natural Mode – Indicated by the palm tree icon on the display panel, this setting will adjust
the airflow speed between 1, 2 and 3.
2. Sleep Mode – Indicated by the moon icon on the display panel, this setting will gradually
lower the speed at different intervals, depending on the selected fan speed. If the fan speed
is set to 3, the cooler will run for 30 minutes on high speed, 30 minutes on medium speed
and then continue to operate on low speed. If the fan speed is set to 2, the cooler will run for
30 minutes on medium speed and then continue to operate on low speed. If the fan speed is
set to 1, the cooler will continuously run on low speed.
5
TIMER Button
a. This evaporative cooler is equipped with a 7.5 hour programmable timer. To set the timer, press
the TIMER button. Each press of this button will add 0.5 hours to the set time.
b. The set time will be indicated in the middle of the display panel.
SWING Button
To activate the oscillation feature, press the SWING button. The fan head will automatically oscillate
counterclockwise, which directs cool air into a cyclone for a more focused cooling effect.
Additional Features
a. If the water level in the tank drops below the minimum level, the unit will produce an audible alert
that will last for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, the evaporative cooler will automatically turn off.
b. If the water tank is removed while the unit is on, it will automatically turn off.
Maintenance
Regular cleaning and maintenance is an essential step in maintaining the longevity of your evaporative
cooler and ensuring that it operates free of defects. Maintain your evaporative cooler by following these
steps:
General Maintenance Instructions
 Always unplug the evaporative cooler from the power supply before servicing or cleaning.
 Use a soft cloth and a mild soap and warm water solution to clean the unit’s exterior. Do not use
harsh cleaners, gasoline, paint thinner, benzene, etc., as these substances can damage the
evaporative cooler.
 Thoroughly dry all of the cooler’s parts with a soft cloth before reconnecting the unit to the power
supply.
 Empty the water tank after the evaporative cooler has been in use. Regular, scheduled cleaning
of the water tank before each use is also recommended.
 If the evaporative cooler will not be in use for an extended period of time, place the unit back in its
original carton and keep it stored in a clean, dry place.
 The evaporative cooler’s filter, tank and cooling pad will need to be removed prior to cleaning.
Once all of the different components have been cleaned, place them back into the unit in this
order: water tank, cooling pad and dust filter.
Cleaning the Dust Filter & Cooling Pad
 To prevent clogging of the dust filter, we recommend cleaning the filter at least once a month.
 To clean the dust filter, remove it from the back of the unit by pushing down on the two tabs
located above the filter and pull it out. Gently scrub it with a soft brush and rinse with water.
Allow it to thoroughly air dry before placing it back in the unit.
 To clean the cooling pad, first remove the dust filter to expose the pad. Turn the knob on the pad
clockwise and pull it out from the back of the unit. Rinse it with clean water and allow it to
thoroughly air dry before placing it back in the unit.
6
Cleaning the Water Tank
 Unplug the evaporative cooler from the power supply and empty the water tank after the
evaporative cooler has been in use. Regular, scheduled cleaning of the water tank before each
use is also recommended.
 To clean the water tank, rinse it in a warm water and light detergent solution or a water and
vinegar solution. Rinse it with clean water and dry it thoroughly before placing it back into the
cooler.

Troubleshooting
Problem
There is no airflow.
Possible Cause(s)
The unit is not plugged in.
The water tank is not locked
into the unit.
The unit does not
cool.
There is insufficient water in
the tank.
The cooler/humidifier button
was not pressed.
The unit does not
cool on high speed.
The pump is defective.
The cooling pad is not

turns on when there
is still enough water
in the tank.
The water tank is
leaking.
There is an issue with the
water pump’s sensor.
There is mineral buildup on
the cooling pads.
The water tank is damaged.
There is an odor
coming out of the
evaporative cooler.
The unit is brand new and
has never been used before.
There is algae buildup in the
tank or on the cooling pad.
Possible Solution
Check to make sure the plug is plugged into an
outlet. The unit should beep twice once the
power supply is connected.
Make sure the water tank is locked into the back
of the unit.
Check the water level in the tank and make sure
there is enough water.
Press the COOLER/HUMIDIFIER button.
Contact customer service if there is an issue
with the water pump.
If speed 3 is selected when in cooling mode, the
unit will automatically revert to speed 2 for 5
minutes to allow the pad to be fully soaked. The
cooler will automatically turn to speed 3 when
the pad is soaked.
Clean the cooling pad by rinsing it in water and
allowing it to thoroughly dry. You can also clean
it with a water and vinegar solution. If the
problem persists, contact customer service.
Clean the water pump by wiping it down with a
damp cloth or try rinsing it with a water and
vinegar solution.
Mix together a water and vinegar solution and
pour it in the tank. Turn the cooler on and let
the solution run through the pads to break up
any buildup that may be clogging the cooling
pad.
Contact customer service if there is an issue
with the water tank.
If the evaporative cooler has never been used
before, the unit may emit a slight odor upon
initial use. This odor will dissipate within a
week.
If the evaporative cooler is not new, there may
be algae buildup in the tank or on the cooling
pad. Clean the tank out with a vinegar/water
solution and/or call customer service for a new
replacement pad.
