OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
BEFORE USING YOUR EVAPORATIVE COOLER
The Luma Comfort EC220W works as an evaporative cooler, humidifier, and
air purifier in one unit. To achieve he best cooling effect from your cooler,
please follow these suggestions:




Unlike air conditioners, evaporative coolers work best in areas with a fresh
air supply. If using the unit indoors, place it near an open window or leave
the door to the room open. You can also open another window or door on
the opposite side of the room to create a “flow through” cooling effect.
Turn on your evaporative cooler before the ambient temperature reaches
excessively high levels. Due to the low operating costs of the unit, it is very
cost effective to leave the cooler running for extended periods.
Add cold water to the tank. Ice can also be added for an enhanced cooling
effect. After adjusting the COOLER dial, the unit’s high-efficiency cooling
pads will become damp. Air is then drawn through the rear panel and over
the pads to release cool, clean air. Please note that it may take a few
minutes for the cooling pads to become fully saturated with water.
If the humidity levels in your environment increase, the EC220W can also
be used as a fan to circulate the air. Simply turn on the unit but do not
adjust the COOLER dial.

SET UP AND OPERATION
Carefully remove all packaging materials and retain for future storage/use.
Make sure there is no residual foam left in any of the components. No tools will
be required to assemble this evaporative cooler.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Choose a suitable location for your evaporative cooler. This product works
best in areas with a fresh air supply.
Fill the water tank with clean water through the water inlet. Ice cubes may
also be used for added cooling. Ensure that the casters are locked with the
lever fully up. This is so the casters can support the weight of the unit.
Connect the unit to a power supply and turn the SPEED dial. The fan will
start.
To begin cooling, turn the COOLER dial to the ON position. To experience
the full cooling effect, wait a few minutes for the cooling pads to become
fully saturated with water.
Periodically check the water level on the water level indicator. If the water
tank is running low on water, turn the COOLER dial to the OFF position
and add more water/ice.
To turn the unit off, turn the COOLER dial to the OFF position and the
SPEED dial to the OFF position. If the unit will not be used for an extended
period of time, empty the water tank by unplugging the drain plug located
on the back of the evaporative cooler.
REFILLING THE WATER TANK
The water tank can be refilled by using one of
these methods:


Manual: Fill the water tank by pouring water
into the tank from the back of the cooler
through the water inlet.
Continuous: The tank can be filled
continuously by connecting a garden hose to
the continuous water supply inlet/hose
connector.
www.LumaComfort.com

INSTALLING THE HOSE CONNECTOR
1.
2.
To continuously fill the water tank with water using a garden hose, screw
the larger end of the supplied hose connector to the continuous water
inlet. Ensure the connector is securely connected.
Fully insert the small PVC pipe all the way into the narrow end of the hose
connector. There should be approximately 0.5” of the PVC pipe extending
out of the hose connector. Attach a garden hose to the PVC pipe and
clamp the two together using the metal clamp.
ADJUSTING THE AIR LOUVERS
1.
2.
3.
To adjust the air louvers, turn the SWING dial to the ON position. The air
louvers will automatically move horizontally, improving the distribution of
cooled air throughout your space.
To turn off the automatic swinging function, turn the SWING dial to the
OFF position.
You can also adjust the vertical direction of the air louvers by manually
adjusting them.

MAINTENANCE
Always unplug the evaporative cooler from the power supply before servicing
or cleaning.
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:
EXTERIOR CLEANING
1.
2.
Use a soft cloth and a solution of mild soap and warm water 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.
CLEANING THE COOLING PADS
To prevent the cooling pads from becoming clogged with dust, mineral
deposits and other buildup, we recommend that they be cleaned at least once
a month.
1.
2.
3.
To remove the cooling pads, use a Philips screwdriver to remove the side
and rear panels.
Rinse the pads with clean water to remove dust. For a more thorough
cleaning, use a diluted vinegar solution to wash the pad. If necessary,
immerse the pad in the diluted vinegar solution for 30 seconds to remove
hard water buildup. Be sure to rinse the pad thoroughly with clear water to
remove vinegar residue.
Allow the filter and the cooling pad to air dry completely before replacing
them in the unit. Secure the panels with the screws.

11
WATER TANK CLEANING
The water tank should be emptied regularly to ensure hygienic use. To empty
the tank:
1.
2.
3.
Remove the back panel and cooling pad to provide access to the interior of
the evaporative cooler.
Pull the drain plug from the bottom of the unit.
To clean the tank, rinse it with warm water and a light detergent solution.
Rinse with clean water and allow it to dry completely.
WATER PUMP MAINTENANCE
Hard water buildup can affect the performance of the cooler’s water pump. To
prevent malfunctions, clean the pump and internal tubing with a calcium and
lime cleaning product (such as CLR) at least once a season.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
Empty any water from the tank.
Pour the cleaner into the water tank and close it, making sure the pump is
submerged in the cleaner.
With the tank closed, allow the pump to soak for 10 to 20 minutes.
Remove the cooling pads from the back and sides of the unit.
Run the cooler for 30 seconds. This will circulate the cleaning solution
through the pump and tubing to remove any leftover mineral deposits. Do
not operate longer than 30 seconds, or damage might occur to other parts
of the cooler.
Rinse the tank and fill it with clean water. Run it for several minutes
without the cooling pad in place to ensure the cleaning solution has been
rinsed away.
Replace cooling pads and operate unit as normal.
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.
