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? General information A comfortable atmosphere indoors is reached with a re lative humidity level between 40 and 60%. Your humidi fier controls automatically the humidity level according to desired setting. If the air is too dry, the humidifier will automatically switch on. As soon as the desired humidity level is reached, it will switch off. Unpacking • Carefully remove the humidifier from the box. • Remove the plastic bag from the humidifier. • Observe the information given on the rating plate about the voltage. • Use the original packaging for storing the appliance if you do not use the humidifier all year round. Description of the appliance Mist outlet (rotating) Cover Water tank Evaporation chamber Demineralization cartridge Water tank cap Brush Water base Main body Control panel Water level sensor Membrane ISS (optional) Power plug Air inlet 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 (10). Keep distance of at least 20 inches (50cm). • Soak the demineralization cartridge in the water tank approx. 24 hours before using it. The resin has to absorb water to reach high performance. • 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. See «Replace ment of the demineralization cartridge». • Read the instructions under «Filling the Tank» for adding water in the humidifier (12 and 13). • Place the water tank and then the cover onto the base. • Insert the plug into the socket and switch on the appliance using the on/off switch (15). • 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). 10 Filling the tank 13 Always unplug the unit before removing the water tank. Do not touch the water in the base during operation! Do not operate the humidifier when the water tank is empty! When the water reaches the minimum level, the unit switches off the nebulizer function automatically. The red light comes on indicating tank is empty. 11 • Make sure that no foreign objects are in the water tank. • Take off the water tank cap to fill the tank with water (11). Fill the tank with clean, cold water from the tap (12). Close the cap of the water tank securely, place the water tank and then the cover onto the base (13). The water is now running from the tank into the base. • Do not pour water into the mist outlet of the appliance (14). • Insert the plug into the socket and switch on the appliance using the on/off switch (15). The green light comes on. If you see the red light that displays that the water tank is empty. 14 Use of additives 12 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. 15 O/ I en en Water quality maintenance © An Ionic Silver Stick (16) keeps the water free of harmful bacteria. The anti-microbial action of silver is used. The Ionic Silver Stick releases silver ions in the water over a long period (approx. one year). It‘s self-regulating and maintenance-free. Look at picture 16 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.

Do not touch the water in the base during operation! O/I B A C A) On-off switch and regulation of mist output Turning the right-hand rotary switch clockwise switches the appliance on and at the same time regulates the mist output from low to high. B) Hygrostat (setting the humidity level) The desired humidity level can be set by turning the lefthand rotary switch clockwise. A relative humidity of bet ween 40% and 60% is recommended. The accuracy of the measurement is +/- 5%. As soon as the humidity exceeds the desired setting the appliance switches off. The appli ance does not switch off if the rotary switch is turned all the way to the right as far as the arrow symbol. This activates the continuous operation function. C) Empty indicator As soon as the tank runs out of water, the red empty indica tor lamp turns on and an alarm is sounded. Please read the chapter “Filling with water” for more information. 10 The water tank is equipped with a demineralization cartridge. 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 (natrium added to remove calcium) in the building before it is used in the humidifier, salt can precipitate as white dust around the device. Option A: replace the resin • Remove the cover (Caution: the mist outlet is loose!). Remove the water tank from the base and unscrew the water tank cap (17). • The demineralization cartridge is attached to the inside of the tank cap. Unscrew the cartridge from the cap by turning it counter-clockwise (18). Important: do NOT dispose of the water tank cap! • Open the cartridge (19). • Throw the content into the waste (Attention! Disposed resin can make the floor slippery!) (20). • Pour the resin into the cartridge (22). (Attention! Make sure that no granules get in the center of the cartridge. It can clog the unit). • Close the cartridge (24). • Screw the cartridge on the water tank cap (25). • Screw the cartridge on the bottom side of the water tank, put the tank on the base tray (26). • Soak the new granules for 24h before use! The resin must soak up water to reach full performance! Option B: replace the whole cartridge • Remove the cover (Caution: the mist outlet is loose!). Remove the water tank from the base and unscrew the water tank cap (17). • The demineralization cartridge is attached to the inside of the tank cap. Unscrew the cartridge from the cap by turning it counter-clockwise (18). Important: do NOT dispose of the water tank cap! • Throw the whole cartridge into the waste (21). • Unpack the new cartridge (23). • Screw the cartridge on the water tank cap (25). Close tank cap well, place the tank on the lower part and insert mist outlet (26). • Soak the new cartridge for 24h before use! The resin must soak up water to reach full performance!

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. A. 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 quic kly 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. 14 Q. Why do I need a humidifier when I can just open my window? A. The moisture level within the outside air is not high enough to humidify a 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. en Q.Is it ok to use distilled water with the unit? A. Yes, it is fine to use distilled water with the unit. If distilled water is used, it will prolong the life of the DMC. 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 gra nules 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 2 feet off the floor, the mist will have the opportunity to evapo rate before hitting the floor. 15 en 16 AIR-O-SWISS is a brand name of PLASTON AG, Switzerland.
