(39 inches). Operating the product in any other position could cause a hazard.
2) Insert the plug into a suitable wall socket (Fig. 1) The
dehumidifier is suitable for operating on an electricity supply having
the same voltage as that shown on its rating label.
3) Make sure the water tank is correctly located. After switching on
the machine for the first time, if the “Bucket Full” light illuminates,
pull out the water tank, and check that the “float” lever is able to
move freely, then return the water tank to the correct position (Fig.2).

WATER FULL
INDICATOR
LIGHT(RED)
When the water tank is full and/or incorrectly positioned inside the cabinet, the water
full red light turns on and remains on until such time that the tank is emptied and/or
correctly re-positioned.
This condition will result in the immediate shut down of the dehumidifying system (both compressor and fan
motor operations are terminated). This is a safety feature. When the water tank is emptied and/or correctly
re-positioned, the dehumidifier will resume operation automatically.
NOTE: It may take several minutes before operating conditions resume.
BUCKET FULL When the water tank is full the machine will stop and the
LIGHT ON
“Bucket Full” light will illuminate.
The water tank should be carefully removed from the machine by sliding it
outward from the front of the unit, and it should be emptied. When the empty
tank is replaced properly in the machine, the unit will start up and run normally
(Fig. 3).
Fig. 3
Please use
both hands
to carefully
empty the
water tank.
FACTORY
DEFAULT SETTING
Each time the unit is disconnected/re-connected and/or in the event of a power failure, the electronic circuit
board automatically defaults to the following factory setting:
Humidity Setting: 60%
Fan Speed: Low
NOTE: In the event of a power failure, all previous settings are automatically erased/cancelled. If your
program setting was different from the above (default setting) it will be necessary to re-program your settings.
When the unit is switched “Off” manually (using the on/off keypad) the unit will always default to the last
program setting that was used.
Proper installation of the water tank is crucial in maintaining reliable dehumidifier
operation. The water tank holds accumulated condensed water and, by means of a safety
switch, controls both the water level and operation of the dehumidification process.
When the water tank is full and/or accidentally displaced insider the cabinet, the float switch actuator (inside
the tank) breaks contact with the safety swtich. This condition results in the immediate shut down of the
compressor and fan motor system, preventing moisture from being condensed.
NOTE: Never tamper with or attempt to defeat the water level (safety) float switch system.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS (cont’d)
DEFROST
When the machine is operated at low temperatures (less than 18°C), the surface of the evaporator may
accumulate a layer of frost which would reduce the efficiency of the machine. When this happens the machine
will go into periodic defrost mode. The machine will operate in temperatures down to 5°C. The time taken to
defrost may vary. If the machine freezes up, it should be turned off at the power supply and re-started. If the
room temperature remains below 5°C the machine should be switched off.
DEHUMIDIFYING
Dehumidifying is a means of removing moisture from the air.
A dehumidifier will help to protect your home and valued possessions from damage (swelling) caused by
moisture in the air. Essentially a dehumidifier removes moisture from the air as the moist air passes over a
dehumidifying (evaporator) coil. Moisture is condensed on the evaporator coil, drained, and collected insider
an internal (removable) water tank located at the front of the unit. The exhausted air being returned into the
room environment is elevated several degrees, causing the surrounding air temperature to increase
(slightly). This process also contributes to lowering the relative humidity of the surrounding air.
DEHUMIDIFYING MODE SELECTION:
1) To turn the unit on, press the ON / OFF button.
2) Press the humidity
or
buttons to select a desired RH operating value (30%-90%).
FAN SPEED SELECTION:
Select a fan speed on the keypad. The speed you select is identified by the (illuminated) indicator light located
directly above the selection made.
Fig. 4
AIR FILTER
Your dehumidifier features a removable Air Filter. This filter is located at the front of the
unit (behind the air intake grill) directly above the water tank compartment. The air filter
plays an important role in helping to reduce (minimize) dust/dirt particles from the
surrounding environment. A blocked/clogged air filter reduces air intake, impacting
negatively on operating efficiency. To maintain maximum operating efficiency, the
filter must be checked and cleaned regularly (every 2 weeks). More frequent cleaning
may be required depending upon indoor air quality.
IMPORTANT: Never operate the unit without the air filter in place.
AIR FILTER CLEANING STEPS:
1) Pull the air filter out gently (Fig. 4).
2) Clean the filter with a vacuum cleaner, or wash it with clean water and dry
with a dry cloth.
3) Put the clean air filter back in place and continue to operate the dehumidifier.
