Do not use your dehumidifier under the following conditions:
Your AMCOR dehumidifier will begin to protect your home from the harmful effects of
excessive moisture as soon as it is turned on.
Excess moisture travels throughout your home, in the same way that cooking smells
spread around the house. For this reason, the dehumidifier should be positioned in a
central and clear location so that it can draw this moist air from all over the home. A warm
hallway or landing is an excellent position for your dehumidifier. If possible, leave interior
doors ajar to allow air circulation. Alternatively, if you have a serious problem in one area
you can begin by positioning the dehumidifier there and moving it to a more central
location at a later date.
For the most effective use, run your dehumidifier with external doors and windows kept
closed. Please note the unit should not be placed directly against a radiator or other
heat source.
When positioning your AMCOR dehumidifier, ensure that it is placed securely on a level
surface clear of any obstacle that may limit the air movement.
Before you move the unit, switch it off and empty the water tank.
Keep a minimal 0.2m safety distance between

Cleaning the body
Use only a soft cloth to wipe the unit clean.
Do not use volatile chemicals, petrol, detergents, chemically treated cloths or other
harmful cleansing solutions. These could all possibly damage the abs case.
Cleaning the washable air filter
This dehumidifier is equipped with a washable filter.
This will capture most airborne pollutants like dust,
smoke, animal dander, mould spores and pollen to
create a less irritating living environment.
It is advisable to check the filter on a regular basis
(at least monthly and after storage) and clean as necessary:
• Extract the filter holder
• Use a vacuum cleaner or tap the filter lightly.
If the filter is particularly dirty, use luke-warm water with
a small amount of medium strength detergent and rinse
thoroughly under the cold water tap.
Make sure the filter is completely dry before replacing.
Do not expose the filter to sunlight or other sources of
direct heat as this may cause the filter and frame to warp.
When the water tank is full, the unit will switch off automatically and beep 15 times, t
he LED [1] on the control panel will light up. The tank needs to be emptied:
• Lightly press on the sides of the tank with both hands
and pull out gently.
• After discarding of the water, gently push the tank
back into its place. The LED light will go off.
1. Do not remove the float from the water tank,
the Water full sensor will no longer be able to
detect the water level correctly without the float
and water may leak from the water tank.
2.If the drainage tank is dirty, wash it with cold or
lukewarm water. Do not use detergent, scouring pads,
chemically treated dust cloths, gasoline, benzene, thinner,
or other solvents, as these can scratch and damage the
tank and cause water leakage.
3. When replacing the drainage tank, press the tank
firmly into place with both hands. If the tank is
not positioned properly, the “TANK FULL” sensor
will be activated, and the dehumidifier will not operate.

10mm inner diameter) through the hole,
and connect to the continuous drainage
port (part B).
4. Place the other end in a drain. Make sure the tube
is free from twists and bends/
