Congratulations on choosing the Ultrasonic AIR-O-SWISS
7133 / AIR-O-SWISS 7135!
Did you know that dry room air:
• Causes the membranes in your respiratory system to
dry out, and also causes chapped lips and stinging
eyes?
• Encourages infections and illnesses of respiratory system?
• Causes weariness, tiredness and poor concentration?
• Stresses household pets and house plants?
• Encourages the formation of dust and the electrostatic
charging of textiles made of synthetic fibers, carpets
and plastic flooring?
• Damages furnishings made of wood and parquet?
• Detunes musical instruments?
Unpacking
• Carefully remove the humidifier from the box. Place your
hands underneath the product to pull it out of the box
(10).

Setting up
Finding the ideal location for your unit
• Do not place the humidifier directly next to a heating
element or on a floor with floor heating. The moisture
of the mist can damage the floor surface (6) (see Sa­
fety Instructions).
• The unit should be placed in an elevated position (7), e.g. on a table, chest, etc.
• The mist outlet must not be pointed directly at plants or other objects (13). Keep distance of at least 20 inches (50cm).
• Soak the demineralization cartridge in a water bath
24 hours before using it (14). The resin has to absorb
water to reach high performance. If it is soaked in the
tank, make sure to exchange the water and empty the
water from the base before using the humidifier.
• On average the demineralization cartridge should
be replaced every 2 – 3 months depending on your
water hardness. Some areas may need to replace the
cartridge sooner, some may last longer. The cartridge
must be exchanged at the latest after 6 months or the
unit does not reach its full performance anymore. See
«Replacement of the demineralization cartridge».
• Read the instructions under «Filling the Tank» for adding water in the humidifier (15 and 16).
• Place the water tank onto the base.
• Insert the plug into the socket and switch on the appliance using the on/off switch (19).
• About 10 to 15 minutes after having been switched on
the device will reach its full power.
• Make sure that the cable is not pinched anywhere (9). Do not operate the humidifier if the cable is dama­
ged (2).

tank.
• Take off the water tank cap to fill the tank with water
(15). Fill the tank with clean, cold water from the tap
(16). Close the cap of the water tank securely, place
the water tank onto the base (17). The water is now
running from the tank into the base.
• Do not pour water into the mist outlet of the appliance
(18).
• Insert the plug into the socket and switch on the appliance using the on/off switch (19). The green light
comes on.

Use of additives
Water additives (ethereal/essential oils, fragrances, eucalyptus, water conditioners etc.) must not be used!
Even a small amount can cause cracks in the material.
The material isn’t made for the use of such additives.
One drop is enough to damage the tank and as a conse­
quence the unit. Any use of such additives will void the
manufacture’s warranty.

A) On-off dial and regulation
of mist output
Turning the right-hand rotary dial clockwise switches the
appliance on and at the same time regulates the mist out­
put from low to high.
B) Hygrostat (setting the humidity level)
The desired humidity level can be set by turning the lefthand rotary dial clockwise. A relative humidity of between
40% and 60% is recommended. You can achieve this level
by rotating the dial until it is roughly in the vertical posi­
tion. The measurement accuracy is +/- 5%. As soon as the
humidity exceeds the desired setting, the appliance swit­
ches off. The appliance does not switch off if the dial is
turned all the way to the right as far as the arrow symbol.
This activates the continuous operation function.
C) Operation with water pre-heating
Pressing the pre-heating button (at the bottom between the
two rotary switches) pre-heats the water to 176° F (80° C) before it enters the nebulizer space. The mist will now be
emitted at a pleasant 104° F (40° C). The advantages of
this are that the room temperature does not fall and water
cleanliness is significantly improved.
D) Empty indicator
The water level is easy to see, thanks to the transparent
water tank. The appliance also alerts you when the wa­
ter tank is empty. The red empty indicator is illuminated
(symbol D). Please read the chapter „Filling the tank“ for
more information.

H) Automatic mode and Sleep mode
Set the desired humidity in % by pressing button C. A
relative humidity of between 40% and 60% is recommen­
ded. The humidity can be set between 40% and 75%. The
measurement accuracy is +/- 5%. As soon as the humidity
exceeds the desired setting, the appliance switches off. The
device does not switch off if the display is set to «Co» (conti­
nuous operation). The desired value will be indicated during
selection. After a few seconds, the display automatically
shows the current value.
D) Empty indicator
The automatic and sleep mode «ZZZ» can be activated by
pressing button H. If the automatic function is activated
(«AUTO» appears on the display), the ideal air humidity is
maintained relative to the temperature. This is regulated
using the output quantity and the preset desired value. If
the «ZZZ» function is set, the desired humidity is 60%; the
time setting is automatically set to 6 hours; the heating
element is switched on. In addition, the output quantity is
regulated, depending on the difference between the desired
and the actual values.
The water level is easy to see, thanks to the transparent
water tank. The appliance also alerts you when the water
tank is empty. The empty indicator is illuminated (symbol

• Switch off the appliance and unplug it from the socket
before cleaning it (20).
• Clean the water tank and the base regularly. Use water
only, no detergents (21).
• Use AIR-O-SWISS EZCal custom cleaning and descaling
agent to remove deposits from the membrane regularly
(22 - 23). There is a sample of EZCal included in the
packaging of your humidifier. Instructions for using are
on the packet. Only use 1 packet for 32 oz of water. Do
not change te ratio. Do NOT run the unit when using
EZCal. This can cause damage to the product and voids
the warranty. Thoroughly rinse the base with potable
water after using EZCal and make sure no EZCal resi­
dues remain in the base.
• Do not submerge base in water (24)!
• The cleaning indicator still appears on the display after
cleaning. To reset it hold down the ON/OFF button until

en
Always unplug the unit before removing the
water tank. Do not touch the water in the base
during operation!
The water tank is equipped with a demineralization cart­
ridge. This cartridge has to be replaced every 2 – 3 months.
If the water is very hard, it may be necessary to replace the
cartridge earlier. White dust around the device is a sure sign
that the cartridge needs replacing. Please note white dust
is not harmful. If white residue still forms around the device
after a new cartridge has been inserted, please make sure
that the water you are using is untreated. If the water flows
through a decalcification system – such as an ion exchanger
- (sodium is added to remove calcium) in the building before
it is used in the humidifier, salt can precipitate as white dust
around the device. The demineralization cartridge and or the
granules must be exchanged at the latest after 6 months or
the unit does not reach its full performance anymore.

Option A: replace the resin
• Remove the water tank from the base and unscrew the
water tank cap (26). Caution: the mist outlet is loose!
• The demineralization cartridge is attached to the inside
of the tank cap. Unscrew the cartridge from the cap by
turning it counter-clockwise (27). Important: do NOT
dispose of the water tank cap!
• Open the cartridge (28).
• Throw the content into the waste (Attention! Disposed
resin can make the floor slippery!) (29).
• For refilling the DMC, wad a piece of paper towel and
place it in the middle of the DMC. For placing granules
in the cartridge, a suggestion is to use a spoon so that
granules do not get in the middle of the cartridge (31).
Placing granules in the middle allows them to escape
everywhere or to clog the unit. The unit will no longer
operate properly and the granules need to be cleaned
out thoroughly.
• Close the cartridge (33).

en
• Screw the cartridge on the water tank cap (34).
• Close tank cap well, place the tank on the lower part
and insert mist outlet (35).
• Soak the demineralization cartridge in a water bath 24
hours before using it. The resin has to absorb water
to reach high performance. If it is soaked in the tank,
make sure to exchange the water and empty the water
from the base before using the humidifier.
Option B: replace the whole cartridge
• Remove the water tank from the base and unscrew the
water tank cap (26). Caution: the mist outlet is loose!
• The demineralization cartridge is attached to the inside
of the tank cap. Unscrew the cartridge from the cap by
turning it counter-clockwise (27). Important: do NOT
dispose of the water tank cap!
• Throw the whole cartridge into the waste (30).
• Unpack the new cartridge (32). Cut the bag open at the
marked point.
• Close tank cap well, place the tank on the lower part
and insert mist outlet (35).
• Soak the demineralization cartridge in a water bath 24

Lifecycle Indicator
37
An Ionic Silver Stick® (36) keeps the water free of micro­
bial growth. This is an optional accessory. However, we as
the manufacturer highly recommend to use it in order to
keep the unit safe and free of microbial growth. The antimicrobial action of silver is used. The Ionic Silver Stick®
(ISS) releases silver ions in the water over a long period
(approx. one year). It‘s self-regulating and maintenancefree. Look at picture 36 for the position of the ISS in the
base part of the unit. Do not touch the water in the base
during operation! Switch off the unit first. Contact your
local retailer or check our website www.airoswiss.net for
reorder information.
Your appliance comes as standard with a lifecycle indicator
for changing the Ionic Silver Stick®. To remind yourself of
when you put the ISS into operation, please cross the cur­
rent month on the stamp and write the current year on the
line provided (37).
Storing the appliance for extended periods
Clean the appliance as described earlier and allow to dry
thoroughly. Preferably store the appliance in its original box,
in a dry place away from high temperatures.

en General Humidifier Questions
Q. Why isn’t there enough moisture in my room?
A. How often do you run the unit? If the unit is only run at
night, then during the day the moisture level will drop if
moisture is not constantly added to the air.
Q. Do you leave your door open or closed when the
unit is running?
a. By leaving the door open, this allows moisture to leave
the room and go into other areas of the house. If you
would like the moisture to stay within one specific
room you should consider closing the door while the
unit is running.
b. Wood, leather, carpet, curtains, and other types of fabric
soak up a lot of moisture, thus not leaving enough
moisture for the air. If the window is left open, then this
allows moisture to escape the room. Another factor is
a lot of times the unit is placed next to a heating device. The idea is that the air blowing into the room will quickly place moisture around the room. Unfortunately,
this concept does not work because the hot air coming
out of a vent will soak up most of the moisture, and
none of the air within the room will receive any.
Q.How much moisture do I need in my room?
A. Suggested humidity levels are between 40 – 60%.
Q.What are the effects of too little or too much
humidity?
A. Dry air can cause dry skin, static electricity, out of tune
musical instruments, increased levels of dust (dry air
causes dust to rise), damage to wooden objects (dry
out and eventually cracks appear), discomfort, sick­
ness, and dries out nasal membranes.
Over-humidifying the air can cause mold and wallpaper
to peel.
Q. Why do I need a humidifier when I can just open
my window?
16
A. The moisture level within the outside air is not high
enough to humidify a room. The colder the air the less
moisture it is capable to hold, and the more the air is
heated up the percentage of relative humidity is lower.
Relative humidity means the amount of water vapor in
the air, compared to the amount the air could hold if it
was totally saturated. The difference is higher between
outside and inside temperatures; more humidification
is needed because of the dry air in the room.
Q.Where should I place my humidifier?
A. The unit should be free-standing and not close to a
wall, window, door, or thermal bridge so that air may
circulate around the unit.
Ultrasonic Frequent Questions
Q.Why does it say open/close on the demineralization
cartridge cap?
A. Those directions are there in case you decide to use
the refill option to replace the granules; the purpose is
for how to open and close the cap. If you did open the cap before placing it in the water
tank, you will most likely notice that there are granules
in the water tank and the base of the unit. Immedia­
tely turn off the unit, and empty the water out of the
base and the water tank. Begin removing all granules
from base and water tank. Use brush to clean around
membrane.
Caution: Do not dispose of granules in sink! Used granules must go in waste!
Q.I just replaced my cartridge, and the contents and
water in the base has turned a blue-green color.
A. This sometimes occurs when the cartridge, or even
the granules, are replaced. This does not occur with all
replacement cartridges or granules, and is a reaction of
water content and the Ultrasonic vibrations. This is not
an indicator to replace the cartridge.
Q.There is no fill-line on the water tank, how far may
I fill it up?
A. There is no fill line on the water tank, and it may be
filled all the way to the top.
Q.What is the purpose of the demineralization cartridge (DMC)?
A. The DMC removes minerals from the water to prevent
white dust as much as possible. The contents of the
cartridge need to be soaked for 24 hrs prior to first
using the unit so that they may fully expand and remove minerals from the water.
The contents of the DMC have a life of 2 – 3 months. The cartridge may need to be replaced more often
depending on water hardness and how often the unit
is used. An indication of when the DMC needs to be
changed can be white dust or reduced amount of mist
output.
Q.Is it ok to use distilled water with the unit?
A. For best results with your ultrasonic humidifier use
distilled or reverse-osmosis water and remove the
demineralization cartridge.
Q.I just replaced the contents of the cartridge and
now have granules everywhere.
A. First, make sure there are no granules in the middle
of the cartridge. Placing granules in the middle of the
DMC allows them to escape everywhere. Immedia­
tely turn off the unit, and empty the water out of the
base and the water tank. Begin removing all granules
from base and water tank. Use brush to clean around
membrane.
For refilling the DMC, wad a piece of paper or paper
towel and place in the middle of the DMC. For placing
granules in the cartridge, a suggestion is to use a
spoon so that no granules get in the middle of the cartridge.
Caution: Do not dispose of granules in sink! Used granules must go in waste!
Q. The directions tell me not to place the unit directly
on the floor, why do I have to elevate the unit?
A. The idea with this unit is to allow one to force more
humidity into the air than is needed. Because of this,
the carpeting or wood floor surrounding the unit may
become damp. If the unit is placed at least 3 feet off
the floor, the mist will have the opportunity to evapo­
rate before hitting the floor.
Q. Water does not go into the tank.
A. In order to fill the tank, it must be turned upside down.
The cartridge is placed on the water tank cap. Do not
pour water in the tube which is the mist outlet.
Q. White dust is emitted from the unit
A. White dust particles are minerals that are broken up in
tiny pieces by the ultrasonic process.
Solve the problem:
• Soak the demineralization cartridge in a bowl of water
for a minimum of 24 hours. If the cartridge is soaked
in the water tank, the water in the tank and the base
needs to be replaced before using the unit.
• Exchange the demineralization cartridge after 1-2
months when you use very hard water (for softer water
after 2-3 months). No matter how hard your water
is, exchange the cartridge at the very latest after 6
months.
• Don’t use water from a pre-installed water softener,
or sodium instead of calcium will be emitted from the
unit. Use distilled water instead and remove the demi­
neralization cartridge.
• For very hard water areas use only distilled water and
remove the demineralization cartridge.
• Use Reverse-Osmosis water (R-O water) instead of dis­
tilled water and remove the demineralization cartridge.
• Cleaning light is flashing (model 7135, 7142)
Switch off the unit and unplug it. Empty the water in
the base. Rinse the base with hot/clean water. Do not
submerge the base! Visually inspect the base for dirt or
mineral build up. If soft water is used decalcifying the
unit every 4 weeks with EZ Cal is suggested. If hard
water is used the unit should be decalcified every 2
weeks. Do not forget to reset the clean light after reset­
ting the unit.
the lower is the percentage of relative humidity (=the
amount of water vapor in the air, compared to the
amount the air could hold if it was totally saturated)
• position of the unit - if it is placed close to a door, win­
dow or air vent. This increases the air circulation.
Q. Reset cleaning light (model 7135/7142)
A. The cleaning light does not automatically reset. Hold
down the power button (button A in instruction manual)
until the light stops flashing. The light automatically
comes on approx. after 14 days of plugging in the unit.
Q.Tank is leaking
A. Check if there are any hairline cracks. Dropped units or
water tanks that are cracked will not be covered under
the warranty. Please contact the retailer the unit was
purchased from in case your unit arrives damaged.
Q.The hygrometer on unit reads a different humidity
level than external hygrometer.
A. Not all hygrometers are calibrated the same, and most
are off by +/- 5%. Plus the humidity level is not the
same in the whole room. The air circulation is different
in every corner of the room. The unit should not be
placed near a heat vent or a radiator as the heat will
absorb all of the moisture. Q.Placing the face in the mist
A. It is not recommended that anybody places their face
in the mist. It is an electrical product and should not be
played with.
Q. Humidity level is not changing or does not reach
the desired humidity level.
A. If the water tank needs refilling more than once per
day, the unit is working properly and the climatic condi­
tion in the room has an influence on the humidity.
Reasons for low humidity level:
• air circulation is very high (air is fully exchanged se­
veral times per day – the humidifier needs to starts its
work from scratch)
• insulation of home (see air circulation)
• open space with high ceilings (not only the footage of
the room counts but also the height) – high-rise buil­
dings require more humidification.
• open windows – works similar to air circulation (if it is
very cold outside don’t open the window more than 2
times per day for 3 minutes
• big difference between outside temperature and inside
temperature – the colder the air the less moisture it
is capable to hold and the more the air is heated up
Q.No mist / unit is not working / empty indicator
keeps flashing
A. Fill up the water tank. Check if water is flowing through
the demineralization cartridge (attached to the water
tank cap). If the water tank is full but there is only little
water in the base it indicates that the water is now
flowing through the demineralization cartridge.
• Wait for 15 minutes to allow the mist to come out of
the unit.
• If the unit is not working and the empty light is not
flashing you might have set the desired humidity too
low and the current humidity level in the room is hig­
her. That is why the unit switches off automatically.

Q:Water tank cap is too tight to unscrew
A: This could be a cause of the air pressure within the
water tank. Depress the spring on the bottom of the
water tank cap to release air from the water tank. Continue to do this until you are able to unscrew the
water tank cap.
Q:Unit is running intermittently.
A: How long has it been since the contents of the cart­
ridge were replaced? If 2-3 months have passed, it is
time to replace the contents of the cartridge. However
the demineralization cartridge and or the granules
must be exchanged at the latest after 6 months or the
unit does not reach its full performance anymore.
• If the contents of the cartridge were just replaced there
are probably too many granules in the cartridge. Re­
move a tablespoon of granules from the cartridge.
