continue to run until the frost disappears.
Auto restart
In the case of a power failure or interruption the unit will automatically restart, in the settings
last used, when the power is restored.

USING THE DEHUMIDIFIER
When first using the dehumidifier, operate the unit continuously 24 hours.
How the Dehumidifier Operates
Automatic Defrost
Moist, humid air is drawn over a cold refrigerated
dehumidifying coil. Moisture in the air condenses on
this coil and drains into a tank (or through a
hose for continuous drain).
Dry, clean air is drawn through the condenser
where it is heated and discharged through the top grille
into the room. It is normal for the surrounding air to
become slightly warmer as the dehumidifier operates.
When frost builds up on the evaporator coils, the
compressor will cycle off and the fan will continue
to run until the frost disappears.
In defrosting mode,the fan motor will run normally
and the compressor stop running.
Choosing a Location
YES
NO
A dehumidifier operating in a basement will have little or
no effect in drying an adjacent enclosed storage area,
such as a closet, unless there is adequate circulation of
air in and out of the area.
Do not use outdoors.
This dehumidifier is intended for indoor residential
applications only. This dehumidifier should not be
used for commercial or industrial applications.
Place the dehumidifier on a smooth, level floor
strong enough to support the unit with a full bucket
of water.

Allow at least 12–18 inches of air space on all sides
of the unit for good air circulation (The place with a
draught leaves the distance of the wall as 40 inches).
Place the dehumidifier in an area where the
temperature will not fall below 5°C. Or the coils
can become covered with frost, which may
reduce performance.
Use the dehumidifier to prevent moisture damage
for stored items.
NOTE: The dehumidifier has rollers to aid placement,
but it should only be rolled on smooth, flat surfaces.
Do not attempt to roll the dehumidifier on carpet or
over objects.
Use the dehumidifier in a basement to help prevent
moisture damage.
The dehumidifier must be operated in an enclosed
area to be most effective.
Close all external doors, windows and other outside
openings of the room.
When the dehumidifier operates please do not
cover the top grille.

USING THE DEHUMIDIFIER
Always make sure the water tank is securely in the unit.
Removing Collected Water
2) Insert the drainage hose into drain spout.
There are 2 ways to remove collected water:
Use the tank. When the tank is removed
the unit will shut off. Empty and replace
the tank.
3) Before replacing the tank, please remove the drain
lid from the tank.
NOTE: Hold tank with
both hands when emptying.
Important: Do not use the hose if using the
water tank to collect water. When the hose
is connected, it will bypass the basket for
continuous drain.
NOTES:
Do not remove the bucket while the unit
is in operation or it has just stopped.
Otherwise it may cause some water to
drip from the draining pan.
The tank must be in place and secure
for the dehumidifier to operate.
4) Replace the tank. Make sure the drain hose goes
through the tank's drain hole.
This is just the schematic plan, please refer
to the actual product.
ATTENTION: When using continuous drainage
option, place dehumidifier on a level surface and
make sure the hose is clear of any obstruction
and is directed downward. Press down drain door
so it rests on top of the hose.
Placing dehumidifier on an uneven surface or improper hose installation may result in water filling
up the tank and causing the unit to shut off.
Empty water tank if shut off occurs, then check
dehumidifier location and hose for proper setup.
Use a hose. Water can be automatically
emptied into a floor drain by attaching a
14mm inner diameter hose.
1) Remove the tank.

The dehumidifier will turn off automatically
when the tank is full, or when the tank is
removed or not replaced in the correct position.

NOTE: DO NOT rinse or put the filter in an automatic
dishwasher.
Caution: Do not operate the dehumidifier
without a filter because dirt will gather and affect the
unit’s performance.
NOTE: Avoid using a dishwasher to clean the filter.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem
Dehumidifier
does not start
Dehumidifier does not
dry the air as it should
Possible Causes
What To Do
Dehumidifier has reached its
preset level or tank is full.
‡ The dehumidifier automatically turns off when either
condition occurs. Change to a lower humidity setting
or empty the tank and replace properly.
Tank is not in the
proper position.
‡ The tank must be in place and securely seated for the
dehumidifier to operate.
Power failure.
‡ There is a protective time delay (up to 3 minutes) to
prevent tripping of the compressor overload. For this
reason, the unit may not start normal dehumidifying
for 3 minutes after it is turned back on.
Did not allow enough time
to remove the moisture.
‡ When first installed, allow at least 24 hours to maintain
the desired dryness.
Airflow is restricted.
‡ Make sure there are no curtains, blinds or furniture
blocking the front or back of the dehumidifier. See the
Choosing a Location section.
‡ See the Care and Cleaning section.
Dirty filter.
‡ For drier air, turn the dial and set to a lower percent
value (%) or at CON (continuous) for maximum
dehumidification.
‡ Check all doors, windows and other openings
are securely closed.
The Humidity Control may
not be set low enough.
Doors and windows may not
be closed tightly.
Tumble dryer may be
blowing moisture-laden
air into the room.
‡ Install the dehumidifier away from the tumble dryer
The tumble dryer should be vented to the outside.

‡ Moisture removal is best at higher room temperatures.
Lower room temperatures will reduce the moisture
removal rate. Models are designed to be operated at
temperatures above 5°C.

is too large.
‡ The capacity of your dehumidifier may not be adequate.
Doors and windows are open.
‡ Close all doors and windows to the outside.
Frost appears on

Dehumidifier has been recently
turned on, or room temperature
is below 5°C.
‡ This is normal. Frost will usually disappear
within 60 minutes. See the Automatic Defrost section.
Controls cannot be set
The compressor will turn off
and the fan will automatically
continue to run for
approximately 3 minutes at a
fixed setting.
‡ This is normal. Wait approximately 3 minutes and set the
fan as desired.
