EMSL report 151305654 results are based on the reduction of the bacteria in the humidifier base with Clean Control material, during continuous use. The humidifier base showed a reduction rate up to 99.96% of Gram Negative – Pseudomonas Aeruginosa after 8 hours. WARM AND COOL MIST You can select a warm mist or cool mist with this humidifier. Humidifiers add moisture to the air, which helps ease coughing and congestion due to a cold, and relief from dry skin, chapped lips, and dry eyes. Warm mist and cool mist humidifiers are equally effective in humidifying the air. • • Warm Mist heats the water emitting a warm mist. Cool Mist emits a cool mist and will not drastically affect room temperature. ULTRASONIC HUMIDIFIER This is an Ultrasonic humidifier. The humidifier uses a metal diaphragm vibrating at an ultrasonic frequency, much like the element in a high-frequency stereo speaker to create mist. An ultrasonic humidifier is whisper quiet and produces a fine mist into the room. REMOTE CONTROL This Digital Humidifier includes a Remote Control that can be used to operate your device. Simply pull the small plastic tab before use to activate. OPERATION AND USE BEFORE EACH USE CHECK HUMIDIFIER PLACEMENT Place the Humidifier on an elevated, non-metallic, lint-free, waterproof, level surface at least 2 feet above the floor. • • DO NOT place the humidifier on carpet or a towel. The fan vent is located on the bottom of the humidifier base. The fan vent MUST NOT be obstructed. DO NOT place the humidifier on a wood surface or near furniture that can be damaged by too much moisture. CHECK WATER LEVEL SENSOR Make sure that the Water Level Sensor is secured properly and not obstructed. See page 10 for more troubleshooting. DO NOT operate the humidifier without water in the Water Tank. DO NOT plug or unplug the Power Cord with wet hands as electric shock could occur. DO NOT USE ANY ADDITIVES IN THE WATER Additives – such as oils, fragrances, or vapor/steam medications – cannot be added to the water. This humidifier is not made to take additives. Any use of additives will void the manufacturer’s warranty. 5 DIGITAL CONTROL PANEL INSTRUCTIONS NOTE: Use on/off button to reset the humidifier.

MAX-MIN MIST CONTROL- Press this button to change the mist output to Low, Medium, or High SET HUMIDITY LEVEL – Press this button to set desired humidity level. You can set the humidity level between 40% - 80%. The recommended humidity level is between 40% - 60%. COOL/WARM MIST SELECTOR- When humidifier is on, cool mist will automatically start.

Turn Water Tank upside down and unscrew Water Tank Cap. 2. Fill Water Tank with cool water. DO NOT fill water all the way to the rim. DO NOT CARRY FULL WATER TANK BY HANDLE. ALWAYS HOLD FULL WATER TANK WITH TWO HANDS. DO NOT use hot water. Use cool tap water. DO NOT add any medication, essential oils, or salt. DO NOT pour water into Mist Outlet Channel. 3. Screw Water Tank Cap back onto Water Tank. Turn the Water Tank over and place on Water Base, making sure it fits perfectly. Note: Do not attempt to move the humidifier while Water Tank is placed on Water Base. Doing so may cause leakage of water and/or Water Base to overfill. 4. Plug the power cord into a wall socket and turn on the unit by using the Control Knob. 5. Use the Digital Control Panel to select the mode of your choice. The blue Power Indicator Light will illuminate. In a few seconds, mist will start emitting. 6. Use the Digital Control Panel to adjust the intensity of the mist output. SET THE CORRECT HUMIDITY OUTPUT: Adjust the Digital Control Panel so that the mist rises up to be absorbed by the room air. Do not set the mist output too high, as the mist cannot be absorbed by the air and may accumulate on the surfaces around the humidifier. 7. When the humidifier runs out of water, the humidifier will automatically shut off and the mist will stop. The Low Water Indicator Light will illuminate red. This safety feature uses a water level sensor to stop the Nebulizer once the water level sinks below the required level in the Humidifier Base. Note: The indicator light on the humidifier will remain on. The red light indicates that the humidifier is turned on and needs to be refilled. 7 A NOTE ABOUT HUMIDITY It is best to keep the humidity level at about 40%-50% of relative humidity. In cold weather, windows and even some walls may fog or develop frost from excessive indoor humidity. If this occurs, reduce the mist output setting to avoid damage from condensed water dripping onto windowsills. Too much humidity in the room may allow moisture to accumulate on surfaces where bacteria and fungi can grow. Moisture that gathers may also damage furniture and walls, especially wallpaper. To reduce excessive humidity, especially in small rooms, leave the room door open and adjust the mist intensity control setting.
