Humidifier
Operations
Your new Sears humidifier is designed to
satisfy home humidity requirements
through the principle of evaporation of
water into the air.
After water is added to the cabinet, 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 through the
top of the humidifier. This moist air is
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

CAUTION:
Keep
your
humidifier
clean. While humidifiers do not cause
colds, some studies suggest that dirty
humidifiers can cause cold-like symptoms In some people. To reduce the
risk of this, we recommend you clean
your
humidifier
weekly
with
Humidifier Cleaner 42-14713 and use
Bacterlostat
42-14900.
These
are
available at your local Sears store
CAUTION:
Use only 42-14900

available
from SEARS Retail store. Under no I
circumstances should you use water I
treatment products designed for Roto
be t or U trason c hum d f ers.
Assembly
Your new Emerson humidifier is completely assembled for you to use. Remove the
packaging
material from inside your
humidifier and follow the instructions of this
owner's manual for proper usage. The
packaging material is located below the
fan assembly. Remove all of the packaging
material and discard.
NOTE: The filters may have shifted
during shipping. Ensure that they are
properly seated in the bottom of the
cabinet below the top filter housings
before filling. Refer to "Replacement
and Care of Filters" section on page 9.

Location Instructions
WARNING: For your own safety, do
not usa humidifier If any parts are
damaged or missing.
Step 1
Place humidifier on a flat level surface in
an area of house where most humidity is
needed, or one 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.
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,
NOTE: Due to release of cool, moist air
from humidifier, if is best to direct air away
from home thermostat and hot air registers. It is best to position humidifier 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.
Step 2
The humidifier should be positioned with
the back (cord exit side), at least 2 inches
away from the wall. Air needs to enter
through the louvers in the mar of the cabinet in order for the humidifier to operate at
peak efficiency
At Least 2" From Wall
Electrical
Hook-Up
Locate nearest 120V A.C. wall socket in
the location desired, preferably on inside
wall. Plug in the electrical cord.
reverse plug. If it still does not fit, contact
a qualified electrician to install the proper
outlet. Do not change the plug in any
way.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire
or shock hazard, humidifier should
be plugged into a 120V A.C. outlet.
Do not use extension cords.
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, this
humidifier has a polarized plug (one
blade is wider than the other). This plug
will fit in a polarized outlet only one way.
If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet,
Water Fill
WARNING: To reduce the risk of shock,
always unplug humidifier before cleaning or servicing.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or
shock hazard, do not pour or spill water
Into conb'of or motor area. Close the
control cover. If controls get wet, let
them dry completely and have unit
checked by an authorized service personnel before plugging in.
This humidifier is designed to be filled
using a bucket fill method. The unit should
be positioned where it will be operating. To
fill the 12 gallon humidifier, close the control cover and open the pivoting lid. Notice
the splash guard inside the cabinet of the
humidifier.
Use recommended mixture of cold water
and if necessary Sears Bacteriostat #4214900 only. Pour the water slowly from a
bucket into the cabinet onto the splash
guard. The water deflects off the splash
guard and drops into the bottom of the cabinet. Do not pour water onto top of unit or
control area. Standing in front of the
humidifier, notice the "PULL" labels posi-
tioned to the left and right of the splash
guard on the inner sides of the cabinet.
These
labels indicate the maximum
amount of water that can be poured into
the humidifier.
Do not fill water in the cabinet above
this line. If you do, water will leak out of
the cabinet and onto the floor.

Adjust the amount of humidity depending

Manual
Dryout
At the end of the humidification season or
if you do not plan to run the humidifier for
one week or more, you can override the
automatic shutoff function to completely
dry the humidifier cabinet out.
IMPORTANT: Water damage may result if
condensation starts to form on windows or
walls. Humidity Control setting should be
lowered until condensation no longer
forms.
To do this, simply slide the float retainer
located at the back of the humidifier cabinet to the top position of the slot it is located in. This will hold the float in an upward
position and the fans will run until you turn
the power off.
Speed Control _)
Your Kenmore humidifier has a three
speed rotary fan control. The higher the air
flow speed, the more water is evaporated
and released into the air. Low speed (1) is
the quietest and is provided for conditions
that may not require as high an evaporation rate.
NOTE: Be sure to position float retainer to
the normal operating mode (lowest position in slot) for humidifier operation.
Below is a diagram of the slot the float
retainer is located in at the back of the cabinet.
