GENERAL OPERATING AND SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 This appliance is a highly efficient dehumidifier, designed for
domestic use only!
 Use this dehumidifier only as outlined in this manual. Any other
use not recommended by the manufacturer may cause fire,
electric shock or malfunctions.
 The unit contains refrigerant; keep it vertical at all times.
 Once you have opened the unit, keep it vertical to allow the
refrigerant to stabilise and wait two hours before operating it.
 Ensure that the required voltage and frequency (220-240V/50Hz)
match the available power source.
 This appliance can be used by children aged from 8 years and
above and people with reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if they have been
given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance in
a safe way and understand the hazards involved.
 Children shall not play with the appliance.
 Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by children
without supervision.
 This product is not a toy. Children of less than 3 years should be
kept away unless continuously supervised.
 Make sure the plug is inserted fully. Do not use multiple adapters.
Do not touch the plug with wet hands. Make sure the plug is clean.
 This product is not a toy. Children should be adequately
supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
 Disconnect the mains power when the appliance is not in use
or during cleaning operations. Keeping the appliance plugged
in may cause electric shocks or accidents.
 To disconnect the appliance, set the switch to OFF and remove
the plug from the socket. Only pull on the plug. Do not pull the
cord.

 Do not bend, drag or twist the cord, or apply force to remove it. Do
not operate the unit if its cable or plug are damaged; doing so
can cause fires or electric shock. If the power cord is damaged,
it must be replaced by a service centre.
 Do not place heavy objects on top of the appliance.
 To prevent water spills, empty the water tank before moving the
appliance.
 Do not tilt the dehumidifier onto one side or turn it upside down, as
the water which runs out could damage the appliance.
 Do not operate the unit on unstable or sloping surfaces:
water leaks can cause it to malfunction or cause excessive
vibration and running noise.
 The dehumidifier must be positioned at least 50 cm away from the
wall or other obstacles, so that the heat can dissipate correctly.
 Close all open windows to maximise dehumidification
efficiency.
 Do not insert objects or sharp instruments into the air outlet
grille.
 Do not cover the air intake and outlet grilles in any way.
WARNING!
In the event of an anomaly, switch the appliance off and unplug
it immediately. Do not dismantle, repair or modify this product
freely. In the event of a malfunction, contact the after-sales
service centre directly.
 Do not immerse the power cord, plug or any other part of the
appliance in water or other liquids.
 Do not expose the dehumidifier to direct sunlight.
 Keep the appliance well away from sources of heat which could
cause plastic parts to become warped.
 Do not spray insecticides, oils or paints near the appliance; doing
so may damage its plastic parts or start a fire.
 Keep flammable gases and oils away from the appliance!

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
APPLIANCE START-UP
Place the product on a flat and stable heat-resistant surface, at least 1 metre away from flammable or heat-sensitive
materials and 50 cm away from walls or other obstructions.
Make sure the water tank is in the correct position.
Connect the power cord to a suitable electric socket (220-240V/50Hz).
Turn the appliance on with the humidity knob (Dry Baby 11) or ON/OFF button (Dry Digit 13 and 17) on the control panel.
OPERATING PRECAUTIONS
The appliance will only start operating if the humidity level in the room is above the set value.
The dehumidifier will continue to operate until the set humidity level has been reached, with the exception of
interruptions caused by a full tank. In this case, empty and reinstall the tank: the dehumidifier will now start running
again.
V 09/16
13
WARNING:
After each interruption of its operation, at least 3 minutes must pass before the dehumidifier starts up again:
this delay prevents the compressor being damaged.
If, on the other hand, the set humidity percentage is higher than the level currently found in the room, the
dehumidifier will not start.
If you follow the start up instructions but the dehumidifier does not start and the stand by led (Dry Baby 11) or display
(Dry Digit 13 and 17) does not come on, or if the dehumidifier stops for no reason, make sure the plug and power cord
are in good working order. After doing so, wait for 10 minutes and then restart the appliance.
If the dehumidifier still does not start after 10 minutes, or if either the power cord or plug are damaged, switch off the
appliance and contact an after-sales service centre.
WARNING:
When the dehumidifier is running, the compressor produces heat and the appliance emits warm air into the
room. The room temperature will therefore tend to increase. This is completely normal.
TURNING THE DEHUMIDIFIER OFF
To turn the dehumidifier off, turn the humidity knob counterclockwise to OFF (Dry Baby 11), see from the front, or press
the ON/OFF button (Dry Digit 13 and 17). This shuts off power to the unit.
Unplug the appliance if you do not intend to use it for some time.
HOW TO ELIMINATE CONDENSATION
The water extracted from the air can be collected in the provided front tank.
When the tank is full, the unit turns off. The FULL TANK led turns on and the unit beeps for about 10 seconds. Empty
the tank. Use two hands to empty the tank.
CONTINUOUS CONDENSATE DRAINAGE
You can fit a 14 mm internal diameter PVC hose (not included) to drain the tank continuous.
Remove the drain hole cap by turning
it counterclockwise.
Screw the drain hose fitting (included)
into the drain hole.
Connect a PVC hose (not supplied) to
the drain hole.
Connect the hose to water drain.
Remove the rubber plug.

HUMIDITY ADJUSTER KNOB
HUMIDITY ADJUSTER KNOB: sets the desired humidity %. Turn the knob fully counterclockwise (seen from in front of
the appliance), to turn the appliance OFF.
Turn the knob clockwise (seen from in front of the appliance) to set the humidity % (decreasing)(80-35%).
TANK FULL LED: when the tank is full, the TANK FULL LED comes on and the appliance stops running. A 10 second
beep sounds. Remove the tank and empty it (as indicated in "HOW TO ELIMINATE CONDENSATION"), the restore it;
the dehumidifier will start running again.
STAND BY LED.
DEFROST LED: the dehumidifier is designed to operate at ambient temperatures from + 5°C to + 35°C.
If it is operated at low temperatures, ice may form on the evaporator, degrading its operation.
When this happens the dehumidifier goes into defrost mode and the defrost LED comes on. The compressor stops, but the
fan continues running.
We recommend not using the dehumidifier in room temperatures lower than 5°C.
AUTO RESTART: the dehumidifier starts up again after a power failure.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
MAINTENANCE OF THE HUMIDIFIER’S EXTERIOR SURFACE
Warning
Always pull the dehumidifier's plug out of the power socket before cleaning it, to prevent electric
shock and malfunction.
Warning
Do not wet the appliance or immerse it in water, otherwise electric shocks may occur.
Use a damp and soft cloth to clean the exterior surface of the dehumidifier.
Do not use solvents, petrol, xylene, talcum powder or brushes to clean the unit: these may damage
the surface or colour of the casing.
CLEANING THE WATER TANK
We advise removing the tank once every few weeks to prevent mould and bacteria forming on it. Fill the tank with clean
water a small amount of detergent; swill the water around in it, then it out and rinse it thoroughly.
V 09/16
16
CLEANING THE AIR FILTER
The filter is designed to remove dust or dirt from the air.
If the filter is clogged by dust, electricity consumption will be higher than normal.
For most effective dehumidification, clean the filter every 250 hours of
operation. After 250 hours of operation, the FILTER RESET (Dry Digit 13 and 17)
led turns on to indicate that it is time to clean the filter.
Cleaning instructions:
1. Compress the two tabs and pull the filter out.
2. Clean the filter with a vacuum cleaner or wash it with clean water at no more
than 40°C.
DO NOT USE ALCOHOL, BENZENE OR OTHER AGGRESSIVE PRODUCTS TO
CLEAN THE FILTER.
3. Leave the filter to dry naturally, then reposition it in the relevant slot.
4. Press the FILTER button (Dry Digit 13 and 17 only).
The Dry Baby 11's filter also needs periodic cleaning (this unit has no FILTER
RESET led or FILTER button).
