INTRODUCTION
Dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air that is circulating through the unit.
The resulting reduction of relative humidity helps prevent rust, rot, mould,
mildew and condensation within the room, or other enclosed spaces where
the dehumidifier is used.
A dehumidifier consists of a motor-compressor unit, a refrigerant condenser,
an air circulating fan, a refrigerated surface, a means of collecting and
disposing the condensed moisture and a cabinet to house these components.
The fan draws air through the refrigerated surface and cools it below its dew
point, removing moisture which is collected and led away. The cool air then
passes the hot condenser, where it is reheated. With the addition of other
radiated heat the air is discharged into the room at a higher temperature but
lower relative humidity than when the air entered the unit. Continuous
circulation of the room air through the dehumidifier unit gradually reduces the
relative humidity in the room.
The CD100 dehumidifier is a rugged reliable drying unit designed to operate
effectively over a broad range of temperature and humidity conditions. A
powerful and reliable active hot gas defrost system, controlled by an
electronic timer, guarantees positive de-icing and thereby optimising operation
at low temperatures.
The unit incorporates a welded steel chassis and is finished in vinyl coated
steel covers for resilience to damage caused by rough handling.

INSTALATION
POSITIONING:
Position the dehumidifier unit in the center of the room to be conditioned if at
all possible. However if a damp patch is particularly apparent the outlet grille
should be pointed towards it.
NOTE: Both inlet grille and outlet grille of the dehumidifier unit must have
clear space around them and not be obstructed in anyway.
WIRING:
Connect the power mains cable to a 13 Amp power supply. As follows:Brown
Live
Blue
Neutral
Green/Yellow
Earth (ground)
DRAINAGE:
Connect a 15mm inside diameter hose to the water outlet pipe. Secure the
hose using a worm drive clip. The hose should at no point be raised higher
than the outlet pipe. Failure to observe this requirement will result in flooding
of the dehumidifier unit.
The CD100 may also be fitted with a water pump (optional), which is capable
of discharging the condensate water 30ft away from the unit. The water can,
therefore, be discharged into a drain some distance away.

OPERATION
The operation of the dehumidifier is to remove moisture from the air by having
it condense on the cold tubes of the evaporator coil. The air then passes over
the hot condenser coil and returns to the conditioned space slightly warmer
and dryer than when it entered the dehumidifier unit. To concentrate drying all
doors and windows should be kept closed.
Test for Correct Operation
WARNING:
DO NOT RUN THE MACHINE WITHOUT THE COVERS IN
PLACE FOR ANY LONGER THAN NECESSARY. DO NOT
REMOVE / REPLACE THE COVERS WITH THE POWER ON
Remove the cover by releasing the retaining bolts and follow the test
procedure laid out below:1. Set the adjustable humidistat to maximum.
2. Switch the machine to the on position; this will result in the compressor
starting to run and the fan blade starting to rotate.
3. When the compressor has been running for 20 minutes the coils located
above the drain tray will be evenly coated in frost. (If the ambient
temperature is above 25ºC the coils will be covered in water.
4. After the machine has been running for approximately 50 minutes the unit
will automatically enter into defrost. The defrost cycle lasts for
approximately 3 minutes; this will result in the frost on the coils melting and
dripping into the drainage tray.
5. After the defrost has finished the machine will return to normal operation.
6. Ensure the condensate drains away from the machine.
Setting the Adjustable Humidistat
The position of the humidistat depends on the application the CD100 is being
used for and the conditions within the area to be dried. The worse the
conditions within the area then the higher the humidistat should be set (i.e. the
machine will run for a longer period of time to ensure all the moisture is
reduced sufficiently). As a rough guide the humidistat wants to be set at
Page 6 of 16

Date

approximately 50% for factories and warehouses and for basements or deflooding then the humidistat should be set to approximately 100%.
Optional Discharge Pump
This is an optional extra as requested at purchase. The pump works
automatically and periodically pumps away collected moisture to a drain or
container. The pump is capable of discharging water to a vertical height of
30ft.
Indicator Panel
The CD100 is fitted with an indicator lamp to show when power is available
and the unit is switched on, if this does not appear to be functioning correctly
then refer to the repairs section.
Warnings.
Due to the high pressures within the refrigeration circuit, under no
circumstances must direct heat be applied to the evaporator coil in an
attempt to remove the build up of ice.
• No attempt should be made to cut open any part of the refrigeration circuit
due to high pressures and gas involved.
• If the unit is switched off at the mains power supply for any reason, the unit
must be allowed to stand at rest for at least three minutes before
restarting. Failure to do so may cause the unit to blow the fuses owing to
the compressor due to there being a refrigerant imbalance.

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
WARNING:
ENSURE THAT THE POWER CORD TO THE MACHINE HAS
BEEN DISCONNECTED BEFORE CARRYING OUT ROUTINE
MAINTENACE ON ITEMS 1, 2, 3, AND 4.
To ensure continued full efficiency of the dehumidifier, maintenance
procedures should be performed as follows:
Removal of the cover is achieved by means of four screws at the sides of the
unit at base level. With the cover removed all maintenance can be carried out.
1.
Clean the surface of the evaporator and condenser coils by
blowing the dirt out from behind the fins with compressed air.
Hold the nozzle of the air hose away from the coil (approx 6”) to
avoid damaging the fins. Alternatively, vacuum clean the coils.
WARNING:
DO NOT STEAM CLEAN REFRIGERATION COILS
2.
Check that the fan is firmly secured to the motor shaft and that the
fan rotates freely.
THE FAN IS SEALED FOR LIFE AND DOES NOT NEED LUBRICATING.
3.
To check the refrigerant charge, run the unit for 20 minutes (with
humidistat set to maximum) and briefly remove the cover. The
evaporator coil should be evenly frost coated across its surface. At
temperatures above 25°C, the coil may be covered with droplets of
water rather than frost. Partial frosting accompanied by frosting of
the thin capillary tubes, indicates loss of refrigerant gas or low
charge.
4.
Check all wiring connections.
IF ANY OF THE PRECEDING PROBLEMS OCCUR, CONTACT THE EBAC
SERVICE CENTER PRIOR TO CONTINUED OPERATION OF THE UNIT TO
PREVENT PERMANENT DAMAGE.

REPAIRS
1.
Should an electrical component fail, consult the Factory Service
Center to obtain the correct replacement part.
2.
If refrigerant gas is lost from the machine, it will be necessary to use
a refrigeration technician to correct the fault. Contact the Factory
Service Center prior to initiating this action.
Any competent refrigeration technician will be able to service the
equipment. The following procedure must be used:
a. The source of the leak must be determined and corrected.
b. The machine
recharging.
should
be
thoroughly
evacuated
before
c. The unit must be recharged with refrigerant measured
accurately by weight.
d. For evacuation and recharging of the machine, use the crimped
and brazed charging stub attached to the side of the refrigerant
compressor.
The charging stub should be crimped and rebrazed after
servicing. NEVER allow permanent service valves to be fitted to
any part of the circuit. Service valves may leak causing further
loss of refrigerant gas.
3.
The refrigerant compressor fitted to the dehumidifier is a durable
unit that should give many years of service. Compressor failure can
result from the machine losing its refrigerant gas. The compressor
can be replaced by a competent refrigeration technician.
Failure of the compressor can be confirmed by the following
procedure:
a. Establish that power is present at the compressor terminals
using a voltmeter.
b. With the power disconnected, check the continuity of the internal
winding by using meter across the compressor terminals. An
open circuit indicates that the compressor should be replaced.
c. Check that the compressor is not grounded by establishing that
a circuit does not exist between the compressor terminals and
the shell of the compressor.
