Electrical Information
The manufacturers’ nameplate is located on the rear panel of the unit and contains electrical and other
technical data specific to this unit.
Be sure the unit is properly grounded. To minimize shock or fire hazards, proper grounding is important.
The power cord is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for protection against shock
hazards.
Your unit must be used in a properly grounded wall receptacle. If the wall receptacle you intend to use is
not adequately grounded or protected by a time delay fuse or circuit breaker, have a qualified electrician
install the proper receptacle.
Ensure the receptacle is accessible after unit installation.
Do not use extension cords or an adapter plug with this unit. However, if it is necessary to use an
extension cord, use an approved Dehumidifier extension cord only (available at most local hardware
stores).
To avoid the possibility of personal injury, always unplug the unit before installing and/or servicing.

UNIT OPERATION
Placing the unit
Removing the collected water
A dehumidifier operating in a basement will have little or no effect in drying an adjacent enclosed
storage area, such as a closet, unless there is adequate circulation of air in and out of the area.
There are two ways to remove collected water.
1. Use the bucket
When the unit is off, if the bucket is full, the unit will
beep 8 times and the Full indicator light will flash, the
digital display shows P2.
When the unit is on, if the bucket is full, the compressor

turns off and the fan turns off after 30 seconds for drying
2. Hold both sides of the bucket

display shows P2.
Slowly pull out the bucket. Grip the left and right
handles securely, and carefully pull out straight so
water does not spill. Do not put the tank on the floor
because the bottom of the bucket is uneven. Otherwise
the bucket will fall and cause the water to spill.
Throw away the water and replace the bucket. The
bucket must be in place and securely seated for the
Fig.6
dehumidifier to operate.
3. Pour the water out.
The machine will re-start when the bucket is restored
in its correct position.

on the unit for continuous draining to start.
Do not use outdoors.
This dehumidifier is intended for indoor residential
applications only. This dehumidifier should not be used
for commercial or industrial applications.
Place the dehumidifier on a smooth, level floor strong
enough to support the unit with a full bucket of water.
Allow at least 7.9 in. of air space on all sides of the unit
for good air circulation.
Place the unit in an area where the temperature will not
fall below 41 F(5 C). The coils can become covered with
frost at temperatures below 41 F(5 C), which may reduce
performance.
Place the unit away from the clothes dryer, heater or radiator.
Use the unit to prevent moisture damage anywhere books
or valuables are stored.
Use the dehumidifier in a basement to help prevent
moisture damage.
The dehumidifier must be operated in an enclosed
area to be most effective.
Close all doors, windows and other outside openings
to the room.
When using the unit
When first using the dehumidifier, operate the unit
continuously for 24 hours.
This unit is designed to operate in a working

environment between 41 F/5 C and 95 F/35 C.
If the unit has been switched off and needs to be
switched on again , allow approximately three
minutes for the unit to resume normally.
Do not connect the dehumidifier to a multiple socket
outlet, which is also being used for other electrical
appliances.
Select a suitable location, making sure you have easy
access to an electrical outlet.
Plug the unit into a electrical socket-outlet with a
grounded connection.
Make sure the Water bucket is correctly fitted otherwise
the unit will not operate properly.
NOTE: When the water in the bucket reaches a certain
level, please be careful to move the machine to avoid the
unit from tipping over.

TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Care and cleaning of the dehumidifier
Before calling customer service, review the chart below first yourself.
Turn the dehumidifier off and remove the plug
from the wall outlet before cleaning.
Problem
1. Clean the Grille and Case
Use water and a mild detergent. Do not use bleach
or abrasives.
Do not splash water directly onto the main unit. Doing
so may cause an electrical shock, cause the insulation
to deteriorate, or cause the unit to rust.
The air intake and outlet grilles get soiled easily, so use
a vacuum attachment or brush to clean.
Unit does not start
2. Clean the bucket
Every few weeks, clean the bucket to prevent growth of mold,
mildew and bacteria. Partially fill the bucket with clean water
and add a little mild detergent. Swish it around in the bucket,
empty and rinse.
NOTE: Do not use a dishwasher to clean the bucket.
After cleaning, the bucket must be in place and securely
seated for the dehumidifier to operate.
Dehumidifier does
not dry the air as
it should
What to check
,
Make sure the dehumidifier power plug is pushed completely
into the power outlet.
Check the house fuse/circuit breaker box.
Dehumidifier has reached its preset level or bucket is full.
Water bucket is not in the proper position.
Did not allow enough time to remove the moisture.
Make sure there are no curtains, blinds or furniture blocking
the front or back of the dehumidifier.
The humidity control may not be set low enough.
Check that all doors, windows and other openings are
securely closed.
O
O
Room temperature is too low, below 41 F(5 C).
There is a kerosene heater or something giving off water
vapor in the room.
3. Clean the air filter
Remove the filter every two weeks in normal
operating conditions.
Remove the filter from the top of the unit (See Fig.11a),
or remove the Bucket then pull filter downwards
(See Fig.11b).
Wash the filter with clean water then dry.
Re-install the filter, replace Bucket.
or
Fig. 11a
CAUTION:
DO NOT operate the dehumidifier without a filter
because dirt and lint will clog it and reduce
performance.
4. When not using the unit for long time periods
Turn off the unit, wait one day before emptying
the bucket.
Clean the main unit, water bucket and air filter.
Wrap the cord and bundle it with the band(Fig.12) .
Cover the unit with a plastic bag.
Store the unit upright in a dry, well-ventilated place.
