Experts have established that the optimum environmental conditions for our well being and for
the home are obtained between 40% and 60%
relative humidity. Lower relative humidity can be
achieved with higher room temperatures. For
lower room temperatures the achievable relative
humidity will be on the higher side, closer to
60%. Therefore, with lower room temperatures,
you are recommended to heat the room even
This considerably increases the dehumidifying
power of the appliance.
With heating, the condensation formed by the
water vapour on windows and other cold surfaces evaporates into the air to be collected by the
Air always contains a certain amount of water in
the form of vapour. This determines the level of
humidity in an atmosphere.
The capacity of the air to hold water vapour
increases with temperature.
This is why in our homes, as soon as the temperature decreases, the vapour contained in the air
condenses, as is evident on the colder surfaces
in the room, such as the windows, walls etc.
The purpose of a dehumidifier is to remove the
excess moisture from the air, avoiding the damage caused by condensation.

the unit would come in any contact with water.
Do not install the appliance in rooms containing gas, oil or sulphur. Do not install near
sources of heat.
Do not use the appliance on sloping surfaces.
Keep the appliance at least 2 ft (61cm) away
from flammable substances (alcohol etc) or
pressurised containers (e.g. aerosol cans).
Do not rest heavy or hot objects on top of the
Always transport the appliance upright, NOT

contains fluorinated greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol. Avoid perforating
the refrigerant circuit of the appliance.
Maintenance and disposal must be carried out
by qualified personnel only (R410A,
GWP=1975); (R134a, GWP=1300).
R410A and R134a are refrigerant gases that
complies with EC environmental regulations,
nevertheless avoid perforating the refrigerant
circuit of the appliance.
At the end of its service life, the air conditioner
must be disposed of at a suitable collection centre.
The materials used for packaging can be recycled.

Do not use the appliance outdoors.
Position the appliance in the room to be dehumidified. A free space of at least 2 ft (61 cm) must
be left at the front of the dehumidifier, so as not to
block the air outlet.
For efficient ventilation a space of about 2-4 in (510 cm) should be left at the back of the appliance.
The condensate can be drained in one of the following ways:
A) Draining into the tank
The condensate can be drained directly into the
tank. The tank can be easily removed (fig.1).
When the tank is full, remove (fig.1) and empty it
into a sink. When finished, replace it properly.
NOTE: The tank must be positioned porperly for
the unit to function.
If you hear the intermittent sound of the beep, it
means the tank is not in the proper position.
B) Continuous external draining
If the appliance is to be operated for long periods
but you are unable to empty the tank regularly, you
are recommended to use continuous draining.
fig. 1
fig. 5
1) Remove the continuous drain cap 1 by turning
it counterclockwise then remove the rubber
stopper 2 from the spout (fig. 2).
Note: Some leakages from the spout could happen when removing the rubber stopper 2 (fig. 2).
C) Continuous draining using the
pump (only on pump models)
The patented heavy-duty pump system allows
water removal of up to 13 ft (4m) in height.
If you want the water to flow directly to a drain,
connect the condensation discharge tube supplied
(9) to the connection pipe located on the
lower front part of the unit unit (you will first need
to remove the stopper labeled PUMP) (fig. 6).
Select the dehumidifying function and press the
PUMP button.

2) Insert the drain cap 1 in the condensate drain
hose (8) till the end (fig. 3) then screw the
cap into the spout. (fig. 4).
Note: With the condensation discharge hose
missing and the pump switched ON, the display
will show the symbol PUMP blinking.
To eliminate this problem:
• Check the hose is correctly positioned;
• Disconnect and reconnect the plug.

3) Make sure the end of the hose is no higher
than the spout (Fig. 3) or water could remain
in the tank. Make sure there are no kinks in
the hose (Fig. 5).

If the filter is dirty, air circulation is compromised
and the efficiency of the dehumidifying and air
purifying functions decreases.
It is therefore good practice to clean the filter at
regular intervals. The frequency depends on the
