How Your Humidifier Works
Your new MoistAIR humidifier is designed
to satisfy home humidity requirements
through the principle of evaporation of
water into the air.
After water is added to the bottle, the
filters begin to soak up the water and
become totally saturated in approximately 30 minutes. Air is drawn in from
the rear of the humidifier and through the
filters by means of circulation fans. As air
passes through the filters, moisture is
absorbed into the air and then released
in the form of vapor. No water droplets
will enter the home. All evaporation into
the air takes place in the humidifier,
which means that the residue left by
evaporating water is not passed into the
home, but remains in the filter.
Humidified Air is Then
Released Through the Top
Dry Air
Enters
Through
the Rear
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of
injury, fire or damage to humidifier,
use only cleaners specifically
recommended for humidifiers. Never
use flammable, combustible or
poisonous materials to clean your
humidifier.
To reduce the risk of scalds and
damage to humidifier, never put hot
water in humidifier.
CAUTION: Use only EPA Registered
Bacteriostat. Under no circumstances
should you use water treatment
products designed for Roto belt or
Ultrasonic humidifiers.
Assembly
Your new MoistAIR humidifier is
completely assembled for you to use.
Remove the bag pack containing two
plastic caster pads from top of humidifier
and retain for future use if required. See
the following Step 1 for instructions.
Remove the packaging material from
inside your humidifier and follow the
instructions of this operator’s manual for
proper usage. The packaging material is
located under the fan assembly. Remove
the packaging material and discard.

Location Instructions
next to an inside wall. Hot air registers
and cold air from outside walls can affect
the efficiencies of the controls. Unit
should not be placed where warm air
from a hot air register blows directly on
unit.
Moist air (humidity) produced will
disperse into the whole house, but area
closest to the unit will have the highest
humidity. If the unit is positioned close to
a window, condensation may form on the
window pane. If this is not appropriate
the unit should be repositioned in another
location.
WARNING: For your own safety, do
not use humidifier if any parts are
damaged or missing.
Step 1:
Place humidifier on a flat level surface in
an area of your house where humidity is
needed most, or in an area which would
likely result in moist air being circulated
throughout the house, such as near a
cold air return.
Placing the unit level is very important if
the humidifier is located on carpeting.
NOTE: The humidifier contains water
bottles. The weight of the bottles in the
front of the cabinet may cause the front
casters to sink deeper into the carpet. If
this happens, the water level will be
higher towards the front of the humidifier,
and lower towards the back. The water
level float (located at the rear of the
cabinet) may not sense the water so the
flashing “F” will be displayed and the unit
will not energize. If this happens, the unit
will need to be leveled in order for the
humidifier to be energized. To level the
humidifier when located on carpet, place
the included caster pads under the front
two casters of the humidifier only.
NOTE: Due to release of cool, moist air
from humidifier, it is best to direct air
away from home thermostat and hot air
registers. It is best to position humidifier
Step 2:
The humidifier should be positioned
with the back (cord exit side), at least
5 centimeters away from the wall.
Air needs to enter through the louvers in
the rear panel in order for the humidifier
to operate at peak efficiency.

Operating Tips for Best Performance
4. Perform regular cleaning as instructed
in “Cleaning and Maintenance” section
of this manual.
5. Replace the evaporative wicking filters
at least once per humidification
season or more depending on water
conditions in your area.
1. Position the humidifier at least 2 inches
(5 cm) from any wall and away from
any heat registers.
2. Do not restrict airflow from entering or
exiting the humidifier.
3. Use only EPA registered bacteriostat to
retard bacteria growth that may cause
odors and may be harmful to your
health.

Using Your Humidifier (continued)
Check Filter Indicator
The ability of any humidifier to efficiently
supply humidity output relies heavily on the
condition of the filter. As the filter loads with
impurities it gradually loses its wicking
capability. When this happens, moisture
output is reduced and the humidifier has to
work longer to satisfy the selected setting.
This humidifier has a check filter reminder
timed to appear after 720 hours of motor
operation. When the display shows an
alternating “CF” and “room humidity”
setting at 5 second intervals it is a
reminder to check the filter condition.
NOTE: Some areas have high water
mineral content causing the need for more
frequent filter changes.
Refer to “Replacement and Care of Filter”
on page 11. If a build-up of deposits or
severe discoloration is evident replace the
filter to restore maximum efficiency.
Humidistat
The humidistat located on the power cord
senses the percentage of humidity in the
air. It causes the humidifier to cycle on
and off to maintain the selected humidity
SET point. The fan will turn on if the
“ROOM” reading falls 3% below the SET
point and will continue to run the
humidifier until a reading of 1% above the
SET point is achieved. The fan will turn
off until the ROOM reading falls 3%
below the SET point again.
NOTE: Be sure humidistat, which is
located on the power cord, is free from
obstructions and is away from any hot air
source.
