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.

HUMIDIFIER SAFETY
PLEASE READ AND SAVE
THESE IMPORTANT
SAFEGUARDS
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions
should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric
shock, and injury to persons, including the following:
1. Read all instructions before using the appliance.
2. To avoid fire or shock hazard, plug the appliance
directly into a 120V AC electrical outlet.
3. Keep the cord out of heavy traffic areas. To avoid fire
hazard, NEVER put the cord under rugs or near heat
registers.
4. DO NOT place humidifier near heat sources such as
stoves, radiators, and heaters. Locate your humidifier
on an inside wall near an electrical outlet. The humidifier
should be at least 4’’ away from the wall for best results.
5. NEVER place humidifier in an area where it is accessible
to children. NEVER use humidifier in a closed room,
particularly where a child may be sleeping, resting, or
playing (a closed room may result in excessive humidity).
6. WARNING: Do not attempt to refill humidifier without
first unplugging the unit from its electrical outlet. Failure
to heed this warning may cause personal injury. Be sure
to unplug the unit by pulling on the plug and not the cord.
7. Never place anything over moisture outlet when the unit
is running.
8. NEVER drop or insert any object into any openings.
9. DO NOT operate any appliance with a damaged cord
or plug, after the appliance malfunctions, or if it has
been dropped or damaged in any manner. Return
appliance to manufacturer for examination, electrical or
mechanical adjustment, or repair.
10.Use appliance only for intended household use as
described in this manual. Any other use not
recommended by the manufacturer may cause fire,
electric shock, or injury to persons. The use of
attachments not recommended or sold by the
manufacturer may cause hazards.
11.DO NOT use outdoors.
12.Always place humidifier on a firm, flat, level surface. A
waterproof mat or pad is recommended for use under
the humidifier. NEVER place it on a rug or carpet, or on
a finished floor that may be damaged by exposure to
water or moisture.
13.DO NOT allow the Moisture Outlet to directly face the
wall. Moisture could cause damage, particularly to
wall paper.
14.Humidifier should be unplugged when not in use.
15.NEVER tilt, move, or attempt to empty unit while it is
operating. Shut off and unplug before removing the

recommended by the manufacturer.
17.NEVER use detergents, gasoline, glass cleaner,
furniture polish, paint thinner, or other household
solvents to clean any part of the humidifier.
18.Excessive humidity in a room can cause water
condensation on windows and some furniture. If this
happens, turn the humidifier OFF.
19.Do not use humidifier in an area where humidity level is
in excess of 50%. Use a hygrometer, available at your
local retailer or through the manufacturer, to measure
the humidity.
20.DO NOT attempt to repair or adjust any electrical or
mechanical functions on this unit. Doing so will void
your warranty. The inside of the unit contains no user
serviceable parts. All servicing should be performed by
qualified personnel only.

THESE IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
CONSUMER SAFETY INFORMATION
NOTE: This is an electrical appliance and requires attention
when in use.
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.

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. Once the tank is empty, press the power button to turn
the unit off and unplug the unit.
4. Before refilling the tank, empty or sponge up any
residual water from the base and tank. Follow daily
maintenance instructions.
5. Fill tank with cool, fresh tap water. DO NOT fill with
warm water as this may cause leaking. Replace the
cap on tank FIRMLY.
6. Carefully place the tank onto the base. The tank will
immediately begin to empty into the base.
7. Plug the humidifier into a 120V electrical outlet.
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

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.
