PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION
Your Aprilaire® Whole-Home Dehumidifier installs as part of your home’s central heating and cooling system, removing excess moisture and
reducing the damage that mold and mildew can have on the sustainability of your home and the health of your family. The Model 75 digital
control constantly monitors and displays the relative humidity of the air in your home and controls it to the level you set, putting you in control
of your comfort.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
DEHUMIDIFIER
Begin by plugging in the dehumidifier and turning the On/Off switch ON.
CONTROL
The control will allow you to set the desired relative humidity (%RH)
level in your home and can be used to turn dehumidification On or Off.
Begin by pressing the ON button and ON will be displayed on the LCD
Screen (see LCD display in Figure 1). Use the arrow buttons to set the
control at 59% when first installed. Allow the dehumidifier to run until
the initial setpoint has been reached, before deciding if you want to
change the humidity setting.

aise the setting if you prefer the air to be less dry; this will
R
reduce the amount of time that the dehumidifier runs.
Lower
the setting if you prefer the air to be more dry; this
will increase the amount of time that the dehumidifier runs.
Your comfort is the best measure of how to adjust your setting. When
first installed, your dehumidifier has to remove all the moisture that
is initially in your home. The home acts like a sponge so the moisture
in the materials of your home is at the same level as the air. After
drying the air, the materials of the home will release moisture back
into the air until they are again at the same level. As a result, it is not
uncommon for the dehumidifier to operate for an extended period of
time when first installed.

and set humidity setting.
Energy Savings Tip #1: Adjust the setting to be as high as is comfortable to reduce dehumidifier run time – if it feels clammy or smells
damp or moldy lower the setting. To save energy, turn the dehumidifier control OFF when you open your windows just as you would with
air conditioning.
Energy Savings Tip #2: If vacating your home for an extended period in the summer, set the RH at 59% and set your thermostat to as
high as you are comfortable setting it in the cooling mode. Consult with appropriate professionals regarding the highest temperature that
is safe for your pets or possessions. This will keep the humidity at a controlled level to help prevent mold while minimizing the amount of
cooling energy used.

HOW DOES THE CONTROL WORK?
• W
hen the measured humidity is greater than the setting, the control will turn on the dehumidifier and ON will blink on the LCD display.
• When the measured humidity falls 3% below the setting, the control will turn off the dehumidifier and ON will stop blinking, but remain
displayed on the LCD.
CONTROL LIMITS
The control limits are used to make sure the dehumidifier does not run when conditions are outside of the operating limits. Dehumidifiers are not
as effective when conditions are outside of the operating limits. For example, the dehumidifier will not remove much moisture when conditions
are cool and dry. Control limits allow the dehumidifier to work efficiently within the operating range and turn off when conditions are outside of
these limits.
• Dew Point Lower Limit: 40°F
• Temperature High Limit: 99°F
SEQUENCE OF OPERATION
• T he dehumidifier will turn off if one of the control limits has been exceeded.
• If the control measures a dew point below 40°F OR a temperature above 99°F, the control will deactivate the dehumidifier output if actively
dehumidifying, the dehumidifier will stop dehumidifying, and ON and will blink on the LCD screen (see Figure 2).
• The control will resume normal operation when conditions fall back within the control limits.

MAINTENANCE
Air Filter
The air filter in the dehumidifier should be cleaned or replaced once per year. A clean filter allows the dehumidifier to run at full capacity and
prevents damage to the dehumidifier. To remove the filter, unplug or disconnect power to the dehumidifier. Remove the filter by removing the
filter access door on the side of the unit. The filter can be cleaned by flushing with warm water and a detergent solution. Allow the filter to
dry before reinstalling in the dehumidifier. Reinsert the cleaned or new filter, replace the filter access door and reconnect power/turn on the
dehumidifier. A replacement filter, Model 4904, is available from your installing contractor or from most HVAC contractors in your area.
Drain
The drain and drain hose should be checked and cleaned of debris annually.
CONTROL
The surface of the Model 75 Dehumidifier Control can be cleaned with water or a non-abrasive household cleaner, including glass cleaner. Do
not spray any liquid directly onto the control. Spray water or a cleaner onto a soft cloth and gently wipe the surface of the control.
