Features of your air purifier with humidification function
TOTAL AIR CARE!! Purification, humidification, sterilization functions can operate with one appliance!!
ffFuture multipurpose electric appliance :
As the functions of purification, humidification and sterilization are combined, this Samsung air purifier with
humidification function enables you to use your living space efficiently.
ffAir purification function by 3 step filtering and ion sterilization of dual clean system.
The combination of the 3 step filter purification system pre filter (for large dust)  HEPA filter (for fine dust) 
deodorization filter (for harmful gas and odor) and the sterilization function of S-Plasma ion will improve indoor air
quality.
ffMoisturizing effect by natural humidification :
The fine water particles produced by natural humidification are easily absorbed into skin and spread far away to humidify
the indoor room evenly. In addition, the appliance maintains a healthy humidity of 40%~60% to provide you with
healthy living environment.
ffActive sterilization and control by S-Plasma ion :
S-Plasma ion captures the harmful materials floating in the air through HOO– that is produced by combining active
hydrogen (H) with oxygen ion(O2–) and destroys the hydrogen bond of protein structure to perform sterilization which
removes germ, virus, and mold in the air.
ffClean humidification :
Samsung air purifier with humidification function uses a water purification filter to prevent white powder caused after
moisture vaporizes from forming.
High-class design
ffThe high-class design of the air purifier with humidification function gives the feel of gentle breeze. The design is usercentric as it is easy to use and in harmony with any indoor interior.

Displaying current humidity
ffThe air purifier with humidification function automatically detects and displays current humidity by 5 % units.
ffThe displayed humidity figure might be different from the humidity of distant area.
ffUsers can adjust the fan speed while operating the humidification function of the appliance.
ffThe set humidity may be different from the displayed humidity depending on usage environment and condition.
01 Preparation
Using a filter
ffRemove the vinyl packaging of the deodorization filter before first use.
ffIf you operate the appliance without a filter, the air purification function will not work.
ffWhen filter exchange light(
) is on, change the HEPA filter and the deodorization filter.
(The HEPA filter and deodorization filter removes invisible fine dust and gas or odor particle. Therefore, even though the
filter looks fine, you should change those filters on a regular basis. As the filter exchange period is set based on maximum
hours of usage by considering its operation hour, the exchange period might be different by indoor environment.)
ffWhen odor is generated, fan speed is reduced or proper operation period is over, the filters (Pre filter/ Deodorization
filter) should be changed.
ffIf the pre filter is cleaned frequently, the capacity of air purifier with humidification function is improved and you can
maintain better indoor environment.
ffFor filter change, refer to the ‘Changing the HEPA and deodorization flter’ in the cleaning and maintenance section.

NOTE
01 Preparation
CAUTION
• When the appliance runs out of water during operation, (water supply) light will flash.
• To start the humidification mode, allow about 1-5 minutes after filling the water bottle when the appliance is
supplied with enough water, (water supply) light will go out and then return to the previous mode.
• Tap water reduces the bacterial growth of the water bottle and tray as the tap water contains chlorine. If the
hardness of tap water is high, white powder (impurities) may be formed on a filter or tray. In this case, clean the
appliance more frequently.
• When the water from reverse osmotic pressure water purifier is used, less white powder will be generated than
using tap water. However, as the water of reverse osmotic pressure water purifier does not have chlorine there
could be faster bacterial growth. Clean the water bottle or tray more frequently with a neutral detergent and
using tap water is recommended. (Reverse osmotic pressure method : Pressure larger than osmotic pressure is
applied to the denser solution so that water can move to the light part for purification.)
• Hardness indicates the amount of calcium ion and magnesium ion in water. Limestone and shoreline area shows
high hardness.
• If you assemble the water bottle incorrectly after supplying the water, this may result in water leakage.
