IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Thank you for purchasing a CRANE Ultrasonic Humidifier. Each unit has been
manufactured to ensure safety and reliability. Before using for the first time, please
read the instructions carefully and keep them for further reference.
WARNING!
READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. Failure to follow all of
the instructions listed below may result in electric shock, fire and/or serious personal
injury.
1. This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities, unless they have been given supervision
or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their
safety.
2. DO NOT operate outdoors. This humidifier is intended for indoor use only.
3. Always have water in the Water Tank when operating the unit.
4. Use only clean, cool tap water to fill the Water Tank (filtered or distilled water is
recommended to avoid white dust if water is too hard). DO NOT use hot water.
5. Be sure that the Water Tank Cap is firmly tightened on Water Tank. Place the
humidifier so the mist aims away from children, walls, furniture and electrical
appliances.
6. Use only a 110-120VAC outlet. ALWAYS plug and unplug unit with dry hands
to avoid electric shock.
7. Never operate the unit with a damaged cord or plug.
8. Always place the unit on a smooth, flat, lint-free, non-metallic, waterproof and
level surface and position unit away from direct sunlight. Keep the cord away from
heated surfaces and areas where it could be walked on or tripped over. Unplug the
unit when not in use and whenever you clean or move the unit.
9. Do not add medication of any type into the Water Basin or Water Tank. Do not
cover any openings on the unit or insert objects into any openings.
10. The unit should not be left unattended in a closed room as the air could become
saturated and leave condensation on walls or furniture. Leave room door partly
open when humidifier is being operated.
11. When cleaning the inside of the humidifier, keep water away from the Fan Vent.
Turn off and unplug the humidifier to wipe the exterior (except the electrical
controls) with a damp cloth. Humidifier requires regular cleaning. Please refer to
the CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS in this manual.
12. Do not tilt or tip the humidifier or attempt to empty or fill it while it is in operation.
13. Do not use a detergent to clean any parts of the unit that contain water. Detergent
film dissolved in the water supply can interfere with the output of the unit. Instead,
always use white vinegar mixed with water to clean the humidifier.

GENERAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING!
Read and understand all instructions. Failure to follow all instructions
listed below may result in electric shock, fire or serious personal injury. The warnings,
cautions, and instructions discussed in this instruction manual cannot cover all possible
conditions and situations that may occur. It must be understood by the user that
common sense and caution are a factor which cannot be built into this product, but must
be supplied by the user.
THIS HUMIDIFIER IS NOT A TOY!
Do not let your child play with this humidifier. Serious injury and
electrocution might be possible. This humidifier has to be operated by an adult only.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the humidifier.
SAVE ALL INSTRUCTIONS!
CAUTION: A short Power Supply Cord is provided to reduce the risk of personal
injury resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Extension
cords are available from local hardware stores and may be used if care is exercised in
their use. If an extension cord is required, special care and caution is necessary. Also
the extension cord must be (1) marked with an electrical rating of 125 V and at least 13
A., 1625 W., and (2) the cord must be arranged so that it will not drape over the
countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or accidently tripped over.

If the electric circuit is overloaded by other appliances, your humidifier and/or
appliances may not operate properly. The humidifier should be operated on a separate
electrical circuit from other operating appliances.
POLARIZED PLUG
This humidifier has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the
other). As a safety feature to reduce the risk of electrical shock, this
plug is intended to fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety
feature.
SAFETY WARNING
Although your humidifier is easy to operate, for your safety, the below warnings must be
followed:
1. Do not place the humidifier near a heat source.
2. Never leave the humidifier unattended while connected to the electrical outlet.

4. Use the humidifier on a smooth, flat, lint-free, non-metallic, waterproof, and level
surface away from water.
5. Do not unplug from the wall socket by pulling on the supply cord.
6. The humidifier must be unplugged:
A. Before either filling or emptying the Water Basin and/or Water Tank.

A NOTE ABOUT HUMIDITY
It is best to keep the humidity level at about 40%-50% of relative humidity.
In cold weather, windows and even some walls may fog or develop frost from
excessive indoor humidity. If this occurs, reduce the mist output setting to avoid
damage from condensed water dripping onto windowsills.
Too much humidity in the room may allow moisture to accumulate on surfaces where
bacteria and fungi can grow. Moisture that gathers may also damage furniture and
walls, especially wallpaper.
To reduce excessive humidity, especially in small rooms, leave the room door open
and adjust the mist intensity control setting.
MAINTENANCE
It is important to keep ultrasonic cool mist humidifiers clean. Cleaning and disinfecting
on a regular basis is important for maintaining the performance of your humidifier
IMPORTANT
DO NOT leave water in Water Tank or Water Basin when unit is not in use as it may
result in the buildup of mineral deposits and bacteria that can inhibit the output
efficiency of the humidifier. If water remains in the Water Tank for more than a day or
two, bacterial growth is possible.
