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. HOW YOUR WARM MOISTURE HUMIDIFIER WORKS Your Bionaire® Warm Moisture humidifier is designed to allow the proper amounts of water to flow out of the tank. Air is drawn in through the grill openings and mixed with steam in the misting chamber. The warm mist is then dispersed out of the top of the misting chamber through the outlet grill and into the room. Warm moisture humidifiers put moisture back into the air you breathe to help relieve sinus and respiratory discomforts, reduce annoying static electricity and provide a healthy growing environment for your indoor plants. PRE-OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 1. Be sure the humidifier is switched off and disconnected from the electrical outlet. 2. Select a location for your humidifier, on a flat surface, about 4 inches (10 cm) away from the wall. Do not place your humidifier on furniture, a floor location that will not be damaged by moisture is best. 3. Remove the water tank by holding the tank handle and lifting straight upwards. FILLING THE WATER TANK 1. Twist off the water tank cap located on the bottom of the water tank by turning counter clockwise and fill the water tank with cool fresh water. Do not fill with warm water as this may cause leaking. 2. After filling the water tank, replace the water tank cap by firmly turning clockwise and then replace the water tank onto the base. The water tank will immediately begin to empty into the base. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 1. Plug the power cord into a 120V AC electrical outlet. 2. Turn the Mode Knob to the High position ( II ). The Power Light will be On and the Refill Light will be Off. It is normal for the humidifier to take about 10 minutes to warm up and begin to mist. 3. After the unit begins misting, set the humidifier to the desired power setting [High ( II ) or Low ( I )]. RESET PROCEDURE NOTE: When the water tank is empty and the water in the heating chamber is almost empty, the Automatic Shut Off will activate. The Refill Light will illuminate and the unit will not operate again until you refill the water tank and reset the humidifier. 1. Turn the Mode Knob to off ( O ). 2. Unplug the unit. 3. Remove and refill the water tank, being sure to follow the Daily Maintenance Instructions. Replace the tank onto the base. Fig 1 Humidifier Housing Control Panel Tank Handle 4. Wait 20 minutes for Automatic Shut-Off to reset. 5. After 20 minutes, plug in the unit and turn the Mode Knob to High. The Refill Light should now be off (if not repeat steps 1 through 5). In about 10 minutes, the humidifier will begin to produce moisture. If the Refill Light is still on at this point, and the unit does not begin to product moisture within a few minutes, then repeat Steps 1-5. IMPORTANT: If you do not plan to use the humidifier for two or more days, make sure any residual water is drained from the water tank and base to prevent algae or bacteria growth. WARM MIST CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS The following maintenance procedures must be routinely followed in order to ensure proper, efficient operation of your humidifier. The unit may not operate properly without following the cleaning and maintenance instructions. When the unit is in use, daily and weekly maintenance is recommended. Regular weekly cleaning prevents scale buildup on the heating element and tray. It also prevents micro-organisms from growing on the tray and tank. This ensures that maximum efficiency will be achieved. The manufacturer cannot over-emphasize how essential proper cleaning is to the maintenance and continued use of your unit and to the avoidance of algae or bacteria build-up.
