water bottles. The weight of the bottles in
the front of the cabinet may cause the front
casters to sink deeper into the carpet. If this
happens,
the water
level will be higher
towards
the front of the humidifier,
and
lower towards the back. The water level
float (located at the rear of the cabinet) may
not sense the water so the fill light will be on
and the unit will not energize.
If this happens, the unit will need to be leveled in
order for the humidifier to be energized. To
level the humidifier when located on carpet
place the included caster pads under the
front two casters of the humidifier only. See
diagram page 5.
Location Instructions
NOTE:
Due

air
from humidifier, it is best to direct air away
from home thermostat and hot air registers.
It is best to position humidifier
next to an
inside wall. Hot air registers and cold air
from outside walls can affect the efficiencies
of the controls. Unit should not be placed
where warm air from a hot air register blows
directly on unit.
Step 2
The humidifier should be positioned with the
back (cord exit side), at least 2 inches away
from the wall. Air needs to enter through the
Iouvres in the rear panel in order for the
humidifier to operate at peak efficiency.
At Least 2" From Wall
Moist air (humidity)
produced will disperse
into the whole house, but area closest to the
unit will have the highest humidity. If the unit
_
is positioned close to a window, condensation may form on the window pane. If this is
not appropriate
the unit should be repositioned in another location.
