QUICK START
ENGLISH
QUICK START
Dehumidifier efficiency varies depending on room temperature
and relative humidity
• A lower temperature and lower relative humidity will reduce the moisture removal rate.
• The compressor operates in dehumidification mode only when the set humidity is lower than
the room humidity.
The operating temperature is 5°C to 32°C.
• The dehumidifier cannot be used at 0°C or below because the dehumidified water could freeze.
• At 32°C or higher, the dehumidifier may stop running automatically to protect itself from overheating.
The room temperature increases while the dehumidifier is running.
• This dehumidifier does not have temperature control functions.
• The dehumidifier generates heat while operating, raising the room temperature by about 2°C or
3°C depending on the usage conditions (room air pressure and room size).
The dehumidifier can be restarted after three minutes.
• If you attempt to restart the dehumidifier immediately after stopping it, the compressor will
start running again after about three minutes for product safety reasons.
