GENERAL OPERATING AND SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 The appliance is a humidifier: use this humidifier only as outlined in this manual. Any other use not recommended by
the manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock or malfunctions.
 Ensure that the mains voltage complies with requested (230V/50Hz).
 This product is not a toy. Children should be adequately supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
 This appliance is not suitable for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental abilities,
or without the necessary experience and knowledge, unless they have been adequately supervised and instructed
concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
 Disconnect the mains power when the appliance is not used or for cleaning operations. Keeping the plug
inserted may cause electric shocks or accidents.
 To disconnect the appliance, push the switch to OFF and remove the plug from the socket. Pull on the plug only. Do
not pull on the cord when turning off the appliance.
 Do not insert any objects or needles in the mist discharge nozzle. This may cause electric shock, malfunctions or other
accidents.
 Do not bend, drag and twist the cord or apply force to remove it. Do not use the appliance if the cord or plug are
damaged: this may cause the risk of fire or electric shock. If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be
replaced by the manufacturer, dealer or a similarly qualified person so as to avoid any safety risks.
 Do not use the appliance in the presence of other electric equipment such as computers or precision instruments. The
humidity or “white dust” contained in the mist may cause the appliances to malfunction.
 In the event of an anomaly, switch the appliance off and remove the plug immediately. Do not dismantle, repair or
modify this product freely. In the event of malfunctions, contact the technical assistance centre directly.
 Do not immerse the cord, plug or any other element of the appliance in water or other liquids.
 Do not touch the plug with wet hands.
 Do not inhale the mist discharged from the nozzle.
 Do not use acidic or basic solvents for cleaning the interior of the appliance: the residues may hamper its efficient
operation.
 Do not operate the appliance on unstable surfaces, as the water flowing out of the appliance may wet the floor or
cause malfunctions. Do not place the appliance on a high or sloping surface, as it may fall as a result of vibrations or
accidental knocks. Placing the appliance on a sloping surface may cause the humidifier’s water level control device to
malfunction, thereby causing an interruption in operation or loss of water.
 Do not expose the humidifier to direct sunlight or place it above or adjacent to an air conditioner: this may cause
warping, loss of heat or anomalies during operation.
 Do not place the appliance on furniture or supports with poor heat resistance: this may cause warping or fading of the
support due to overheating.
 Do not place the appliance in environments characterised by strong magnetic fields: this may cause anomalies during
operation.
 Do not place the appliance on blankets or carpets as these may block the entry of air underneath the appliance and
cause faults or malfunctions.
 Do not place the appliance on or close to furniture or curtains. The mist may wet the furniture or curtains causing them
to fade or deform. Moreover, the “white dust” included in the mist may alter the surfaces of furniture: therefore, the mist
jet should not be directed towards furniture.
 Do not operate the appliance in close proximity to bathtubs, showers, washbasins or pools.
 Fill the water tank with clean water on a daily basis. Remove any residual water in the tank after every use. Clean the
water tank and nebuliser every one or two weeks and keep them clean. Do not add any aromatic fragrances to the
water in the tank.
 Do not connect the appliance to the mains supply if the water tank is empty or if the appliance is upside-down: this will
cause the nebuliser to malfunction.
 Do not move the appliance during operation as water leakages or malfunctions may result.
 During winter, the water in the tank may freeze and cause the appliance to malfunction. Remove the water from the
tank.
 Carry out maintenance on the appliance by regularly and thoroughly cleaning the tank and nebuliser. Continuous
operation of the appliance with dirt residues may lead to faults and malfunctions.
 The internal ultrasonic nebuliser is highly sensitive. Do not touch it with fingers or rub it with metal accessories to avoid
reducing mist emission.
 Do not use hot water to avoid damaging the parts that generate mist.

HOW TO ACTIVATE THE HUMIDIFIER
 After having duly filled the tank with water, placed a few drops of essence on the sponge if required, in the specific
tank, and replaced the tank on the appliance, connect the power supply at the rear attachment of the humidifier
and plug into the electric socket, checking that the voltage supplied complies with the product requirements
 The stand-by (green LED) light will turn on
 Should the tank be empty, the empty tank warning light (red LED) will turn on: in this case, fill the tank.
 Now enable steam production by using the dial on the front of the product.
 The dial allows you to adjust the quantity of steam you wish to release into the environment, from a minimum (LOW) to
a maximum (HIGH). When set to OFF, the appliance does not produce steam.
 Once the quantity of humidity has been set, the LED turns blue to indicate that the appliance is humidifying.
 The appliance will continue to humidify at the intensity level selected until all water has been used up from the tank.
 When there is no more water in the tank, the humidifier will cease operating and the LED will turn red, to indicate the
need to fill the tank in order to continue operation.

 To restore appliance operation, add water by following the aforementioned procedure.
 Use clean water every time the appliance is used in order to guarantee a longer life-span and increased effectiveness
of the humidifier.
WARNING!!
It is normal for water to accumulate on the bottom of the appliance, as water in the tank passes through to the
appliance’s base in order to initiate the ultrasonic humidification process.
Be careful when removing the water tank for filling/emptying or cleaning operations, as the water accumulated
on the bottom may drip from the tank.
WARNING!!
After using the appliance for a certain period of time, limescale deposits may build up in the water tank and
nebuliser. It is advisable to clean the water tank and nebuliser regularly
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE OF THE EXTERNAL SURFACE
WARNING!!
Always remove the plug from the socket before cleaning the appliance, or electric shocks and malfunctions may
occur. Wait until the water inside the appliance cools before cleaning to avoid the risk of burns.
Use a damp and soft cloth to clean the humidifier’s exterior surface.
WARNING!!
Do not wet the appliance or immerse it in water to avoid electric shocks.
Do not use solvents, petrol, xylene, talcum powder and brushes: these products may damage the surface or
alter the casing colour.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE of the WATER TANK
1. Uscrew the plug on the bottom of the tank by turning it anti-clockwise to eliminate the residual water.
2. Clean the water tank and relative plug using clean water. Clean the water tank plug carefully, without applying force,
so as to avoid water leakages from the plug itself.
WARNING!!
Avoid heavy knocks to the water tank as this may cause water leakages.
Interrupt humidifier operation immediately in the event of leakages and contact the technical assistance service
directly.
STORAGE AFTER USE
1. Ensure that no residual water is left in the tank and inside the appliance.
2. Leave the tank and appliance to dry naturally and completely before storing the product.
3. Place the water tank and appliance in a plastic bag then in the original box and store in a cool, dry place.
WARNING!!
The humidifier may seize or fail to function correctly if stored without being fully dried. Ensure that the
humidifier is completely dry before storing it away.
