SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS WARNING INTRODUCTION Dehumidifiers reduce humidity in enclosed structural environments by removing water vapor from the air. With proper use, the DrizAir can help dry carpet, carpet pad, floors, walls, building contents and more. Using dehumidifiers can also help prevent secondary damage caused by high humidity. For best results, use the DrizAir with Dri-Eaz TurboDryer® airmovers placed around the perimeter of the room to distribute heat energy and release moisture from wet surfaces into the air. WARNING! Electric shock hazard, rotating fan, hot surface hazards. Unplug unit before opening cover for cleaning or servicing. Unit must be grounded. • Inspect the power cord before use. If cord is damaged, do not use. Always grasp the plug (not the cord) to unplug. • Insert three-prong plug on power cord into a matching electrically grounded outlet. Do not use adapter. Never cut off third prong. Do not use an extension cord. • The unit must be operated on a 115V/60 Hz circuit protected by a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) device. • Keep motor and wiring dry. • Do not attempt to repair the unit. For Authorized Service Centers, call Dri–Eaz at 800-932-3030. How the DrizAir dehumidifier works Dri-Eaz refrigerant dehumidifiers operate by pulling moist air in across a very cold evaporator coil. The moisture in the air condenses on the coil. In certain conditions, the machine operates in defrost mode, warming any frost accumulated on the evaporator coil back into water. The water collects in a tray and is pumped out through a hose. IMPORTANT: Before moving the unit, make sure there’s no water in the pump. See how to use the PURGE function under “How to use the control pad” on page 2. BEFORE YOU BEGIN Unpacking your unit POSITIONING A DEHUMIDIFIER Retain all packing material and boxes for possible equipment returns. For best results, operate your dehumidifiers in an enclosed area, as this creates a drying chamber. Close all doors and windows that open to the outside to maximize the unit’s water removal efficiency. Also, keep traffic though the drying chamber to a minimum. Place your DrizAir dehumidifier against a wall, away from obstructions, and keep it away from anything that could block airflow into and out of the unit.

If you use a bucket or other receptacle for water collection, check it regularly to prevent spills. Managing temperature rise DrizAir dehumidifiers warm the air as they remove moisture. Optimal drying temperatures range from 68– 85°F (20–29°C). NOTE: Uncoil and straighten the entire drain hose. Do not leave any of part of the hose coiled on the unit and do not place the end of the hose higher than 20 ft. (6 m) above the top of the unit. Also check for kinks, or obstructions that would restrict the flow of water. Failure to do so may cause a water backup in the pump resulting in leakage. The most accurate way to monitor temperature is with a thermo-hygrometer; however, you can use an indoor/outdoor thermometer to gauge temperature. Just make sure it is located in the center of the room away from the airflow of the dehumidifier. For more information about creating an optimum drying environment, contact Dri-Eaz at 800-932-3030. Plug in electrical cord Locate the electrical cord either on the top or back of the unit. The DrizAir dehumidifier may be plugged in to a 115-volt (15 amp) grounded outlet, which is standard in most homes. OPERATING YOUR DEHUMIDIFIER Set unit upright NOTE: If the unit experiences a loss of power, either from a power interruption or from thermal overload protection, let the unit rest for five minutes before restarting. Otherwise it might shut off again. Always operate the dehumidifier in an upright position. If the unit has been stored or transported in a horizontal position, set it upright (vertical) for at least 30 minutes before operating it. When the unit is placed in a horizontal, oil from the compressor flows into the refrigerant coils reducing the ability of the dehumidifier to function. Turn the unit on Press the “on” button on the control panel. How to use the control panel FIG. A: FRONT The control panel on DrizAir dehumidifiers has one display and four keys. The normal display messages are Control panel. Process (dry) air outlet. DEHUMIDIFIER OFF DEHUMIDIFIER ON TOTAL HRS JOB HRS Set up drain hose When the unit is first connected to AC power, the control panel display will cycle continuously through three messages: DEHUMIDIFER OFF, TOTAL HOURS, and JOB HOURS. The DrizAir condensate pump connects to a plastic drainage hose that is wrapped around the air outlet located at the back of the unit. This hose is equipped with a quick-connect fitting for quick attachment to the provided 40 ft. drain hose. Unwrap the entire hose and place the unattached end in a sink, drain, bucket or 07-01712C 2010-10 Warranty 07-00420 CMPRSR DELAY PUMP PURGING DEFROST ON GET SERVICE ERXX 2 Dri-Eaz Products, Inc. 1. Turn the power off using the OFF key, and let the unit sit plugged in for about 10 minutes. This allows water to drip from the coils and collect in the drip pan. ON-OFF. Press the ON-OFF key to turn the unit on or off. When turning the machine on, usually the display reads CMPRSR DELAY and performs a numeral count down from a maximum of 60 seconds to 0. The compressor delay gives the machine time to warm up (when needed). If you don’t see a compressor delay countdown, the machine is ready to go. Once the unit completes the CMPRSR DELAY, the display reads DEHUMIDIFIER ON, and continues to cycle between TOTAL HOURS, JOB HOURS and DEHUMIDIFIER ON. Press the ON-OFF key again to turn the unit off. The display will read DEHUMIDIFIER OFF. 2. Press PURGE to remove residual water. Defrost mode During normal operation, the temperature sensor detects frost forming on the coils, causing a defrost cycle to start. The display will read DEFROST ON. Dehumidification stops during the defrost cycle. When the unit completes the cycle, the display returns to DEHUMIDIFIER ON. Error messages DISPLAY.
