How The Care Free® Humidifier Plus
Evaporative Humidifier Works
ing on the wick which may make it appear
old or used, but is actually new.
The Care Free® Humidifier Plus Evaporative
Humidifier has a unique patented design with
several innovative features:
• Built-in Antimicrobial Properties – The
plastic parts and the PermaWick™ filter
have built-in antimicrobial properties to inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and
fungi that may affect these parts.
• Low Maintenance – Other humidifiers have
paper filters that need to be replaced every
few months. Our exclusive PermaWick™ filter saves time and money. It’s designed to
last season after season, saving up to $45 a
year. No wet paper odors either.
NOTE: This product contains antimicrobial
properties which are built-in to inhibit the
growth of bacteria which may affect the
plastic and PermaWick™ filter in the humidifier. These properties do not extend to
the water, humidified air or users. Conduct
routine cleaning and maintenance based
upon use and individual conditions.
• Regulated Release™ System – By dispersing water from the top of the
PermaWick™ filter, stagnant water around
the PermaWick™ filter is eliminated, and
the buildup of mineral residue that can
clog the filter and impede performance
is eliminated. NOTE: The filter has a coat41574-01 10/14/2002

PermaWick™ filter. This is normal and
does not affect performance. If you
would like to clean these deposits away,
please see CLEANING THE HUMIDIFIER
AND WATER TANK.
• No White Dust – The Care Free® Humidifier Plus Evaporative Humidifier produces
no white dust that can settle on furniture
or be inhaled.
NOTE: You may notice mineral deposits
accumulating in the tank base or on the

Setting the Desired Humidity
Setting the Span
Note: After unplugging the humidifier to
move the humidifier, to refill the water tank or
to clean the humidifier, you must reset the
digital humidistat.
Refer to Figure 7.
Your humidistat is set at the factory to cycle at
setting 2. If you find your system cycling too

to modify the cycle time.
Refer to Figure 6.
1. Use the power/speed control knob to
turn the humidifier ‘ON’ by selecting a
speed setting.
4. Press and hold both humidistat control
buttons for two seconds to enter span setting mode.
Note: A speed setting must be chosen
before the humidistat will operate the humidifier.
5. In span mode, use the humidistat control
buttons to adjust the span. Raise the span
to 3 to increase the cycle time and allow
your system to run longer. Lower the span
to 1 to decrease the cycle time and allow
your system to run shorter.
2. In normal mode use the humidistat control buttons to set the desired humidity
level. The settings range from 30% to 80%
in 5% increments.
6. The humidistat display will return to normal mode after keys are idle for 5 seconds.
3. When the humidity exceeds the level you
have set, the humidistat light will go off.
The humidifier will not output humidity
while the humidity in the room is at the
selected humidity level. The humidistat
light will stay off until the humidity
changes. When the humidity in the room
drops below the selected level, the humidifier will cycle on again and the humidistat
light will come on.

Refilling The Water Tank
HUNTER WILL NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY CAUSED
BY WATER SPILLAGE.
1. When the water tank level is low, turn the
humidifier ‘OFF’, and unplug.
2. Remove the tank and take it to the sink or
tub to refill.
4. Carry the tank back to the humidifier. Turn
the tank upright and place it on the humidifier. Be sure that the tank is seated
properly in the base. If the tank is properly
located on the base, you will see air bubbles
flowing up into the tank.
3. Turn the tank upside down and unscrew the
tank cap by turning it counterclockwise.
Empty the tank, refill with fresh cool water
(never use hot water), and replace the tank
cap. Be sure not to overfill the tank as water
damage may occur to furniture or flooring
due to spillage.
Cleaning The Humidifier And The Water Tank
in a location where it can drip dry while
you clean the other parts of your humidifier.
Many regions have hard water with high
concentrations of minerals. When water
evaporates from The Care Free® Humidifier Plus
Evaporative Humidifier, minerals may be left
behind. These minerals can form a hard white
scale which can be removed by following the
cleaning instructions. The frequency of
cleaning due to mineral build up can vary
depending upon the quality of water you
may have.
5. Remove the water tank from the base and
empty any water that is left in the tank.
Soak the base in a mixture of one (1) gallon of water and eight (8) ounces of vinegar for 20 minutes.
6. After soaking, wipe the base with a soft
cloth or sponge to remove any mineral
build up. Rinse with clean water several
times. If you are planning on storing the
humidifier, be sure the base is completely dry.
Refer to Figure 1 for part names.
1. Turn the humidifier ‘OFF’ and unplug the
unit.
2. Lift the main housing and remove the water dispersion tray and the PermaWick™
Filters. The motor is attached to the main
housing. Do not place the motor near
water. Do not use a wet towel on the
motor or motor housing as electrical
shock may occur.
7. Fill the water tank with one (1) gallon of
water and eight ounces of undiluted white
vinegar. Replace the tank cap and shake
the tank vigorously until all interior surfaces of the tank have been exposed to the
water/vinegar mixture.
8. Empty the tank of the water/vinegar mixture. Rinse it several times with clean water
and then replace the tank cap. If you are
planning on storing the humidifier, dry it
inside and out, leaving the cap off to allow
the tank to completely dry. Continue to
clean the other parts of your humidifier.
3. The PermaWick™ Filter should be cleaned
in a vinegar and water solution to remove
any mineral buildup. Place in a solution of
one (1) gallon of water and eight (8) ounces
of undiluted white vinegar. Allow the filter
to soak for 20 minutes.
4. After soaking, rinse it several times with
clean water. Place the PermaWick™ Filter
