Foreword
Congratulations on your choice of the evaporator
AIR-O-SWISS E2241 / AIR-O-SWISS E2251!
en
Did you know that dry room air:
• Causes the membranes in your respiratory system
to dry out, and also causes chapped lips and stinging
eyes?
• Encourages infections and illnesses of respiratory
system?
• Causes weariness, tiredness and poor concentration?
• Stresses household pets and house plants?
• Encourages the formation of dust and the electrostatic
charging of textiles made of synthetic fibres, carpets
and plastic flooring?
• Damages furnishings made of wood and parquet?
• Detunes musical instruments?
Usage tips
The usage of humidifiers
• Is particularly advisable during the winter,
• However, it does not take the place of the regular airing
of rooms.
• Should provide a recommended relative humidity of
40 – 60 %
Safety instructions
• Read the operating instructions carefully before using
the humidifier and keep them for later reference.
• Connect the unit only to alternating current with
voltage according to the rating label.
• Only use the humidifier indoors and within the
specified technical data. If used for a purpose for
which it is not intended it could cause serious
danger to health and life.
• Children cannot recognise the hazards associated
with the usage of electrical appliances. For this reason,
always supervise children when they are near the
humidifier (image 1).
• Persons who are not familiar with the operating
instructions, as well as children and persons under
the influence of medication, alcohol, or drugs are not
permitted to operate the appliance, or are only per­
mitted to operate it under supervision.
• Never use the appliance if there is any damage to the
appliance or cable (2), after malfunction, after the
appliance has been dropped (3) or damaged in any
other way.
• Only operate the humidifier when it is completely
assembled.
• Repairs of electrical appliances are only to be made by
qualified service engineers (4). Improper repair work
can cause considerable danger to the user.
• Disconnect the appliance from the mains power
before filling/emptying the water tank, before cleaning/
maintenance, assembling/dismantling of individual
parts and before moving the appliance.
• Place the humidifier on a dry, level surface (5).
• Never pull the plug from the mains socket by the cable
or with wet hands (6).
• Do not put any additives in the water (e.g. fragrances,
essential oils, water fresheners, etc.)
• Place appliance where it is not easily knocked over by
persons in the household (7).
• Always unplug when not in use.
• Do not run power cords under carpets, and do not
cover with throw rugs. Arrange cord such that it will not
be tripped over.
• Do not use the appliance where combustible gases or
vapors are present.
• Do not expose the appliance to rain, or use near water,
in a bathroom, laundry area or other damp location.
• Do not allow foreign objects to enter ventilation.
• Do not sit, stand or place any heavy objects on the
appliance.
• The use of water additives, such as ethereal/essential
oils, fragrances, eucalyptus, water conditioners etc.,
damages the tank material and as a consequence
the whole unit. Any use of such additives will void the
manufacturer’s warranty.

Operating AOS E2241 (20)
Positioning the appliance:
Fig. 19 shows the position in the appliance. Remove the
Ionic Silver Stick® from the packaging and place it between
the evaporating mat and the tray edge without it impairing
the tank when inserted (see Fig. 19). Please replace the
Ionic Silver Stick® at the latest after one year; a new one
can be purchased from a specialist shop.
Operating AOS E2251 (21)
An Ionic Silver Stick® (19) keeps the water free of harmful
bacteria. The anti-microbial action of silver is used. The
Ionic Silver Stick® releases silver ions in the water over a
long period (approx. one year). It is self-cleaning and maintenance-free.
Turn the level switch to the desired setting. In order to
achieve rapid humidification set the switch to «HI». For
quiet, night operation or a gradual increase in humidity set
it to «Quiet Mist». The operating display «Power» comes on
when the appliance is switched on.
Turn the level switch to the desired setting. In order to
achieve rapid humidification set the switch to «HI», for
normal operation «MED». For quiet, night operation or a
gradual increase in humidity set it to «Quiet Mist». The
operating display «Power» comes on when the appliance
is switched on.
Setting the hygrostat on the AOS E2251 (21)
The electronic hygrostat enables the setting of the desired
humidity (selectable between 20% - 90%). The appliance is
then automatically controlled. The desired humidity can be
set by pressing the
and
symbols.
As soon as the measured humidity is 2% below that desired,
the appliance switches on automatically. Once the set
humidity level has been achieved the fan blade is switched
off and the appliance remains active in Standby mode.
The current humidity level is displayed in large numbers,
the smaller number indicate the desired level.
If the current humidity falls below 20%, the display in­
dicates «LO». Should the humidity exceed 90% the symbol
«HI» appears.
Use of additives
Water additives (ethereal/essential oils, fragrances, eucalyptus, water conditioners etc.) must not be used! Even a
small amount can cause cracks in the tank material. The
material isn’t made for the use of such additives. One drop
is enough to damage the tank and as a consequence the
unit. Any use of such additives will void the manufacturer’s
warranty.

Changing the evaporator mat – every 2 – 3 months
• Residues in air and water soil and encrust the
evaporator mat during operation.
• The recommended replacement interval is a nominal
figure.
• Replace the evaporator mat earlier if one of the
following symptoms appears:
– Odours are produced.
– Heavy soiling or scaling (e.g. due to hard water).
– Significantly reduced humidification performance
(e.g. due to hard water).
– Discolouring of the mat caused by mould formation
• A beige-brown discolouring is natural and does not
mean that the mat needs to be replaced.

Cleaning in the dishwasher
en
Please note that only the appliance parts depicted in Fig 40
can be cleaned in the dishwasher. You can also distinguish
these parts by their light blue colour.
Observe the following:
• Always rinse the humidifier parts separately from other
kitchenware (41).
• Always use a cleaning setting with hot water.
• Should your dishwasher have a hot steam drying
option, it is essential that you deactivate this!
• Do not add any acidic substances to the dishwasher
while cleaning the appliance parts (42).
• ALWAYS remove the water tank lid from the tank before
you put it in the dishwasher (43)!
• If possible place the water tank with the opening facing
downwards. This prevents a large quantity of water
from remaining in the tank.
• Should you not be able to place the water tank upright
in the machine move the cutlery rack and see if this
provides sufficient space.
• Once you have cleaned all appliance parts and
thoroughly cleaned them put the parts back together
in their original position (44) (also described in the
chapter «Putting into operation»). Fill the tank with
cool tap water as described in the chapter «Filling the
tank».
