SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS Frequently Asked Questions Question • What are the variables that affect run time? Answer The estimated run time for this humidifier is based on average room conditions. The actual run time of your humidifier is dependent on numerous variables such as: ☛ Air exchange in the room where the humidifier is placed. ☛ Room construction of the room where the humidifier is placed. ☛ Temperature of the room where the humidifier is placed. ☛ Humidity levels in the room where the humidifier is placed. ☛ Movement of occupants and the opening and closing of doors in the room where the humidifier is placed. ☛ Home furnishings in the room where the humidifier is placed. • How do I remove film on water tank? ☛ See Daily Maintenance instructions. Regular cleaning is recommended. • How can I extend the run time? ☛ Run your unit on the lowest setting. ☛ If your unit has electronics, set it to your desired humidity level. The unit will turn on and off, which will extend the run time. ☛ Fill the tank all the way full, place it on the base, let the water empty into the base until it stops bubbling, then refill the tank full again. This ensures maximum water capacity and will extend run time. 1. Do NOT attempt to repair or adjust any electrical or mechanical functions on this unit. Doing so will void the warranty.

NOTE: If moisture forms on the walls or windows of the room, turn off the humidifier. The room already has plenty of humidity and additional moisture may cause damage. NOTE: DO NOT block air inlet or outlet. CORD AND PLUG INSTALLATION SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS THIS APPLIANCE HAS A POLARIZED PLUG (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric 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 to install the proper outlet. DO NOT DEFEAT THE SAFETY PURPOSE OF THIS POLARIZED PLUG IN ANY WAY The length of cord used on this appliance was selected to reduce the hazards of becoming tangled in, or tripping over a longer cord. If a longer cord is necessary, an approved extension cord may be used. The electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to or greater than the rating of the humidifier. Care must be taken to arrange the extension cord so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or accidentally tripped over. SETUP INSTRUCTIONS 1. Select a location for your humidifier, on a flat, level surface about 4 Inch away from the wall. DO NOT place the humidifier on a finished floor or near furniture, which can be damaged by too much moisture or water. Place on a moisture-resistant surface. 2. Remove the tank from the main housing. 3. Bring the tank to the sink, turn upside down and twist off the tank cap by turning counter clockwise. Fill tank with cool, fresh tap water. DO NOT fill with warm water as this may cause leaking. Replace the cap on tank FIRMLY. 4. Carefully bring the filled tank over to the humidifier, holding it level to avoid sloshing or spilling of water. 5. Carefully place tank back onto the base to prevent water from spilling. The tank will immediately begin to empty into the base. 6. Plug the humidifier into a 120V electrical outlet. Fig. 2 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 1. To turn the unit on, press the Bionaire logo power button in front of the unit so that it illuminates. 2. When the humidifier runs out of water, the transducer will automatically shut off and the fan will keep running to dry any residual water out of the base and chamber. 3.

WARNING: DO NOT move the humidifier while it is operating with water in the tank or in the humidifier base. The moving action of the water may activate the water tank’s release nozzle and overfill the transducer cavity. This may cause the humidifier to function intermittently, or stop emitting mist. Should this occur, turn off and unplug the unit, then remove the excess water from the humidifier base. IMPORTANT: If you do not plan to use your humidifier for two or more days, make sure any residual water is drained Fig. 1 Exhaust grill Removable shatter-proof water tank Backlight mist chamber Transducer housing Removable shatter-proof tank Transducer access door Main housing unit DAILY MAINTENANCE Fig. 3 Removal of transducer access door 1. Be sure the unit is OFF by pressing the power button so that it no longer illuminates. Unplug the unit from the electrical outlet. 2. Remove the tank from the humidifier and carefully bring to a sink or tub. Hold the base of unit level as you carry it to prevent excess water from sloshing or spilling. Place in sink or tub. 3. Drain or sponge up any remaining water and rinse thoroughly to remove any sediment or dirt. Wipe clean and dry with a clean cloth or paper towel. 4. Refill with cool tap water. Do not overfill. WEEKLY MAINTENANCE from the water tank and base to prevent any algae or bacteria growth in stagnant water. Make sure the tank is dry. How Does The RevolutionTM Ultrasonic Humidifier Work? 1. Water from the tank is dispersed into the base reservoir where a transducer vibrates the water at ultrasonic speed (1.7 million times per second). 2. The transducer breaks the water into mist and sends it into the RevolutionTM humidifier's front chamber. A vortex air flow propels the smaller finer mist particles up and disperses the fine vapor into the air through the top of the grill, while the denser larger water molecules fall back into the base. 3. The resulting mist emitted from the RevolutionTM is much finer and lighter than from typical ultrasonic humidifiers. The benefit is faster evaporation and faster humidity room coverage. NOTE: Do not let water sit in tank for extended periods. This can encourage bacterial growth. Base of unit CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS Power button heated indoor air.
