present, basic safety precautions should always be followed,
including the following:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.

DANGER: As with most electrical appliances, electrical parts
are electrically live even when the switch is in the
OFF position.
To reduce the risk of death by electrical shock:
1. Always “unplug” the appliance immediately after using.
2. Do not use while bathing.
3. Do not place or store appliance where it can fall or be pulled into
a tub or sink.
4. Do not place in or drop into water or any other liquid.
5. If appliance falls into water, “unplug it” immediately. Do not
reach into the water.

2. Close supervision is necessary when this appliance is used by, on,
or near children or invalids.

If You Must Use Your
Hair Dryer in the Bathroom,
Install a GFCI* NOW!
Your local electrician can help you
decide which type is best for you
— a portable unit that plugs into
the electrical outlet, or a
permanent unit installed by your
electrician. The National
Electrical Code now
requires GFCI’s in
the bathroom,
garage, and
outdoor outlets
of all new homes.
This message about...
WHY DO YOU NEED A GFCI?
Electricity and water don’t mix! If
your Hair Dryer falls in water
while it is plugged in, the electric
shock can kill you even if the
switch is OFF!
A regular fuse or circuit breaker
won’t protect you under these
circumstances. A GFCI offers you
far greater protection.
A GFCI can save your life!
Compared to that,the price is
small! Don’t wait, install one
now!
...can save a life!
*GFCI is a sensitive device which
reacts immediately to a small
electric current leak by stopping
the electricity flow.

CHECK ALCI SAFETY
FEATURE EVERY TIME
YOU USE THE HAIR DRYER
TO USE
1. Press the RESET Button on the
ALCI Safety Device.
2. Plug appliance into AC
electrical outlet.
3. Then press the TEST Button.
The RESET Button will pop
out. This verifies that the
Safety Device is operating
properly.
4. Should the RESET Button not
pop out, do not use the unit,
Contact Consumer Service for
examination and repair (See
Warranty Section).
5. Press the RESET Button to reactivate your ALCI Safety
Device and use your
appliance.
NOTE: Be sure to repeat this test
every time you use the Hair
Dryer to confirm ALCI is
operational.
Due to continuous improvements,
the appearance of your Safety
Plug may vary from the
illustration above.
This unit is provided with an
Appliance Leakage Current
Interrupter (ALCI) Safety Device
built into the plug. This device
will make it inoperable under
some abnormal conditions such as
accidental immersion in water. If
the appliance is immersed in
water, do not attempt to reset
the ALCI Safety Device. Please
take the unit to the nearest
service facility for examination.
The ALCI Safety Device is
equipped with a TEST Button so
that its operation can be
checked.
DRYER STOPPED
Disturbances in your electrical
current can trigger the Safety
Plug. Press the RESET Button on
the unit so it clicks. Your Hair
Dryer will resume operation.

DRYER HOLSTER WALL
MOUNT INSTALLATION
1. Hold the Mounting Template
flat and level against the wall
where you would like to
mount the Holster. Using a
pencil, follow the template
and draw 3 circles on the wall
where the screws will be
placed. (See Figure 1.)
2. Using the drill and 1/4" drill
bit, drill 3 holes where you
marked them on the wall.
3. Tap the anchors into each of
the 3 drilled holes. Do not tap
the anchors flat against the
wall so that you have a small
part of the anchor exposed.
This will make it easier to
work with when inserting the
screws.
4. Insert the screws into the
anchors by screwing them in
with a Phillips screwdriver.
IMPORTANT:
Leave 1/16"
space between the
anchor and
the screw so
the threads
are exposed. Align 3 Holes with
3 Screw Heads
This will be
enough space
for the Holster to hang on to.
5. Locate the 3 holes on the
back of the Holster and align
with the 3 screw heads. Press
the Holster flat against the
wall and slide down to secure
in place.
The Dryer Holster is an
excellent way to store your Hair
Dryer while not in use. Please
note that mounting the Holster
is an optional accessory,
therefore you may use and store
your Hair Dryer as you would
any other hair dryer.
CAUTION: Do not mount the
Holster where the Hair
Dryer or cord can fall or be
pulled into a tub or sink.
It is best to mount the Holster
close to an AC electrical outlet,
allowing 3 inches distance
between the outlet and Holster.
There should also be enough
space around the Holster to
allow the Hair Dryer to be
inserted. The surface should be
flat and level.
TOOLS NEEDED: Drill, 1/4" drill
bit, hammer, pencil, Phillips
screwdriver and the
following included items:
3 Screws, 3 Anchors, and
1 Mounting Template.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
USING THE DRYER
IMPORTANT:
During initial use, you may notice a
slight odor and/or smoke. This is
normal and will cease with use. If
after several uses the situation has
not stopped, discontinue use and
contact Consumer Service (See
Service and Repair in the Warranty
Section).
This appliance is equipped with a
thermostat that will cycle "OFF"
if the temperature exceeds the
comfort level due to partially
blocked air inlet or air outlet
openings. In the event that the
appliance stops during use, slide the
Heat Switch to Low and the
Airspeed Switch to OFF. Allow the
appliance to cool down at which
time the thermostat will automatically reset. During use, do not
block the air openings.
STYLING TIPS
Freshly Shampooed Hair
Be sure to towel dry the hair
before using the Hair Dryer.
This will cut down on styling
time and simplify drying. The
hair should be damp, not
dripping.
Re-styling Dry Hair
To tame frizz or curl the hair
with a styling brush, dry hair
should be misted slightly with a
water bottle prior to styling.
The Concentrator is helpful in
directing the airflow for better
control.
Concentrator
Directs the airflow while styling
smaller sections of hair.
Suggested Uses: blow drying
with styling brushes or velcro
rollers. Gives a smooth,
professional finish to the hair.
Cool Shot
Cool Shot Button
While using the Hair Dryer with
a styling brush or velcro rollers,
the Cool Shot Button helps to
set the style for longer hold
after blow drying with heat.

desired section of hair. After
the hair is heated through,
press the Cool Shot Button for
30 seconds or until the section
is cool to touch.

times to avoid hair damage.

better control when using
sections or a styling brush.

the Airspeed Button to the
OFF position and unplug the
Hair Dryer.

reference, the settings can be
used for the following instances:

from the hair.

textured hair.

velcro rollers.

USER MAINTENANCE
INSTRUCTIONS
Cleaning the Dryer
Keep all vents and openings clear
of dirt or dust. Should dirt or oils
accumulate on the Hair Dryer,
unplug the unit and wipe the
exterior with a damp cloth. Allow
to dry completely before use.
Storage
While not in use, turn the Hair
Dryer OFF, unplug the Hair
Dryer, allow to cool completely,
and store out of the reach of
children in a safe, dry location
or inside the wall mount. Never
store it while it is hot or still

tightly around the appliance.
Never hang the Hair Dryer by

carefully for long life, and avoid
jerking, twisting or straining
especially at plug connections.
Cleaning the Air Filter
and Air Intake Vent
From time to time, check the Air
Filter and Air Intake Vent for lint
build up. Cleaning the Filter and

Dryer handle and lift the tab at
the base of the Filter Cover with
the thumb of your other hand

at the top of the Filter Cover and
slide the tab away from the Hair
Dryer to remove the Air Filter
Cover. (See Figure A.)

maintenance is done to the
Hair Dryer, turn the Hair
Dryer OFF and unplug.
Your Hair Dryer is virtually
maintenance-free. No
lubrication is needed.
If any malfunction occurs, do
not try to repair it yourself.

to cool and call Consumer
Service for examination and
repair (See Warranty Section).
