receptacle.
• Ensure the receptacle is accessible after the unit installation.
• Do not use extension cords or an adapter plugs with this
unit. However, if it is necessary to use an extension cord, use
a sufficiently rated extension and ensure cord is fully
unwound to avoid heat build-up.
• To avoid the possibility of personal injury, always disconnect
the power supply to the unit, before installing and/or servicing.
•
Do not, underany
circumstances, cut,
remove, or bypass
the earth lead.
This unit isgrounded through the
power cord plug when plugged
into a matching wall outlet.

POWEROD
Press to turn the dehumidifier on and off. The
power indicator light blinks slowly when the
power is first connected but the unit is off.
It illuminates (green) when the power button is
pressed and the dehumidfier is switched on.
If the Humidity/Temperature sensor malfunctions
it blinks rapidly (several times a second).
Continuous operation
When pressed the continue light is illuminated
and the dehumidifier will operate continuously
for continuous dehumidification whatever the
humidity. The Humdity set buttons cannot be used
when Continuous operation is on.
@ Humidity Setting Control
The humidity level can be set within a range of
35%RH(Relative Humidity) to 80%RH(Relative
Humidity) in 5% increments.
For drier air, press the ® pad and set to a lower
percent value(%).
For damper air, press the q) pad and set a
higher percent value(%).
The machine will then turn on and off automatically
to maintain the selected level.

Shows the setting control % humidity level while adjusting, then shows the actual room % humidity level (+1- 5% accuracy).
Error Codes:
El- Humidity sensor error--Unplug the unit and plug it back in. If error repeats, call for service.
E2. Temperature sensor error-- Unplug the unit and plug it back in. If error repeats, call for service.
P1-Unit is defrosting-- Adlow the unit time to automatically defrost. The error will clear after the unit self defrosts.
P2-Bucket is full-- Empty the bucket and replace in the right position - the error will reset after a few seconds.
NOTE: When more than one errors occur, the priority of the code display order is:
P2--E2--E1 --P1.

Water Full Light
Glows when the water bucket is full, whilst the bucket is
removed and if the bucket is not replaced in the proper position
The water level control float stops the dehumidifier when
the bucket is full, or when the bucket is removed or not replaced
in the proper position.
Auto Defrost
When frost builds up on the evaporator coils, the compressor will
cycle off and the fan will continue to run until the frost disappears.
Wait 3 minutes before resuming operation
After the unit has stopped (other than tank full), it
will not restart for approx. 3 minutes. This is to protect
the unit and is not a fault. Operation will automatically
restart after 3 minutes.
Auto-Restart after power interruption
If the power is interrupted to the unit then when it
comes back on the machine will restart automatically
in the same mode as was set prior to the power
outage.

OPERATING THE UNIT
P
Positioning the unit
• Do not use outdoors.
• This dehumidifer is intended for indoor residential
applications only. This dehumidifier should not be used
for commercial or industrial applications.
• Place the dehumidifier on a smooth, level floor, strong
enough to support the unit with a full bucket of water.
• Mow at least 20cm of air space on all sides of the unit
for good air circulation.
• Place the unit in an area where the temperature will not
fall below 5t(41 'F). The coils can become covered with
frost at temperatures below 5°C(41°F), which may reduce
performance or cause the machine to ice-up and leak.
• Place the unit away from any heater or radiator.
• The dehumidifier is best operated in an enclosed
area to be most effective.
• Closing doors, windows and other outside openings
will improve the efficiency of the dehumidification process.

Using the unit
• Select a suitable location, making sure you have easy access to an electrical outlet.
• Plug the unit into a 220 - 240V - 50Hz electrical power socket. The electrical socket-outlet must be fitted with an earth
connection.
• Make sure the water bucket is correctly and fully inserted otherwise the unit will not operate properly.
• When first using the dehumidifier, operate the unit continuously for 24 hours.
• This unit is designed to operate within a working environment between 5°C and 35°C.
• If the unit has been switched off and needs to be switched on again quickly, allow approximately
three minutes for the correct operation to resume.
• Do not connect the dehumidifier to a multiple socket outlet, which is also being used for other electrical appliances.

OPERATING THE UNIT
1. Pull out the bucket a little.
Removing the collected water
There are two ways to remove collected water.
1. Using the bucket
• When the bucket is full, the unit will automatically stop
running the water full light will flash and the display
will show P2.
• Slowly pull out the bucket. Use the handgrip at the
bottom of the tank and carefully pull out straight
so water does not spill. Do not put the tank on the floor
because the bottom of the bucket is uneven and it might
spill.
• Throw away the water and replace the bucket. The
bucket must be in place and securely seated for the
dehumidifier to operate.
• The machine will re-start after a few seconds when the
bucket is correctly inserted.

Fig. 5
2. Hold the bottom of the bucket
with one hand and pull gently
backwards then up to remove.
NOTES:
• Be sure to push the bucket gently all the way into the
unit. Forcing the bucket back into the machine may
cause damage to the tank or the unit.

Fig. 6
3. Pour the water out and
replace.
2. Using continuous drainage
If you are leaving the unit for long periods then it may be
beneficial to drain the water away continuously. This can
be done by inserting a pipe onto the machine.
• Cut out the plastic blanking plug located on the side of the
machine (see picture on right). Attach a drain hose
(16mm internal diameter) and lead it out, downhill and away
from the unit.
NOTE: The continuous drainage hose must go downhill all the way
from the unit as the water has to drain away by gravity. Do not place
any part of the hose higher than the outlet of the machine or the water
will not drain away and internal damage could occur to the unit.
•

cover, then push
the hose onto the

that is behind it.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
P
Care and cleanina of the dehumidifier
Turn the dehumidifier off and remove the plug
from the wall outlet before cleaning.
1. Clean the Grille and Case
• Wipe the unit with a cloth using water and a mild detergent.
Do not use bleach or abrasives.
• Do not splash water directly onto the unit. Doing
so may cause internal damage to the unit.
• The air intake and outlet grilles get dusty quite easily, so use
a vacuum attachment or brush to clean.
2. Clean the water bucket
Every few weeks, clean the water bucket to prevent growth
of mould, mildew and bacteria. Partially fill the bucket
with clean water and add a little mild detergent.
Swish it around to clean then empty and rinse.
NOTE: Do not place the bucket in a dishwasher.
3. Clean the washable nylon air filter
The air filter (Fig. 9b) should be checked
and cleaned at least every 30 days
or more often if necessary.
Fig.9a
To remove the filter:
• Grip the tab on the bottom the filter housing and pull it
upward, then pull it out and down as shown in Fig.9a.
• Clean the filter with warm, soapy water. Rinse and
let the filter dry before replacing it. Do not clean the
filter in a dishwasher.
Fig.9b
To replace the filter:
Insert the air filter into the unit locating the top lugs first
then pushing the bottom in. Make sure the removable
filter is pushed up behind the outer grille or it may
stop the outer grille clipping in properly. See Fig.9c.
Fig.9c
CAUTION:
• DO NOT operate the dehumidifier without a filter
because dirt and lint will clog it and reduce
performance.
4. When not using the unit for long periods:
• After turning off the unit, wait 24 hours before emptying
the tank to allow any residual water to drain down.
• Clean the main unit and air filter and wipe dry inside the bucket
• Store the unit upright in a dry, well-ventilated place.

• Allow enough time for the machine to remove the moisture.
• Make sure there are no curtains, blinds or furniture blocking the
front or back of the dehumidifier.
• The humidity control may not be set low enough.
• Check that doors, windows and other openings are closed to
minimise the volume of air the unit has to dehumidify.
• Room temperature is too low, below 5°C(41°F).
• There is a gas heater, a fish tank or something giving off
water vapour in the room.
