How the Storm Extreme Works
The Storm Extreme dehumidifier utilizes its integral humidistat to monitor the conditioned
space. Once conditions are outside the desired setpoint, the compresser energizes and air is
drawn across an evaporator coil. The evaporator coil is cooler than the dew point of the air
so the water vapor will turns into liquid condensation. The air is then reheated through the
condenser coil and distributed back into the room.
Operation Notes
Guidelines
• Always make sure that the unit is operated, transported, and stored on a stable surface.
• For maximum efficiency, operate the unit with all windows and doors closed.
• Do not place the unit anywhere that may block the inlet or outlet airflow.
Drain Hose Notes
• The Extreme is equipped with an external drain line connection, making it easy to plug in.
• The drain line can be directed outside or into any sink, drain, etc.
• For more effective draining, uncoil the entire hose before using.
• Never place the end of the hose higher than 15 feet.
• Always ensure that the drain hose is not blocked prior to use.
Transportation Notes
• Always secure the dehumidifier during transportation
• If the unit is transported vertically, return it to a normal horizontal position, and let sit for 30
minutes prior to use.

Before Use
Maintenance Instructions
• Check the power cord for signs of damage such as fraying. Replace the cord before use if
there is any damage.
• Check the filter for signs of dirt or obstructions. Clean or replace the filter as necessary.
• Check the coils for signs of buildup. Clean if needed.
Cleaning the Machine Body
Use a soft, damp cloth to clean the exterior of the unit. Do not use any soap or solvents.
Filter Maintenance

2. Slide out the filter.
3. Check the filter for dirt
and buildup.
4. For a Pre-Filter or MERV-8:
Clean the filter mesh by
vacuuming it or washing with warm
water (no soap or cleaners).Gently shake the filter dry,
then reinsert it.
5. For a Carbon, or HEPA Filter:
If there is dirt or buildup, replace filter.
Removing the Housing
1. Remove the screws on the housing.
2. Remove the screws on the air inlet grill and
air outlet grill.
Coil Maintenance
• Once per year, clean the coils with an approved coil cleaner.

Error Codes
If there is an issue with the dehumidifier, one of the following error codes will appear:
E 1
L 0
H I
E 5
E 4
• E1 Error
An E1 error code will appear if the humidity sensor has an error. The unit will not work
with an E1 code, however, you can still use the manual pump button
• LO Error
A LO error code will appear if the temperature sensor detects the incoming air is below
the operating temperature range (33°F). The unit will not work with a LO code, however,
you can still use the manual pump button. If the actual temperature is much higher than
33°F, replace the sensor
• HI Error
A HI error code will appear if the temperature sensor detects the incoming air is above
the operating temperature range (106°F). The unit will not work with a HI code, however,
you can still use the manual pump button. If the actual temperature is much lower than
106°F, replace the sensor.
