INSTALLATION & OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS:
Carefully review all of these instructions BEFORE proceeding to install and operate your dehumidifier.
Failure to do so may cause damage, injury, or bodily harm including permanent disability and/or death.
POSITIONING THE UNIT:
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.
• Do not use outdoors.
• This dehumidifer 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 reservoir of water.
• Allow at least 20cm 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.
Casters (4 on the bottom of unit)
Casters can move freely.
Do not force casters to move over
carpet, nor move the unit with water
in the reservoir. (The unit may tip over
and spill water and cause shock)
• 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 24 hours.
• This unit is designed to operate with a working environment between 41°F–95°F (5°C–35°C).
• If the unit has been switched off and needs to be switched on again quickly, allow approximately three
minutes for the correct operation to resume.
• 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 earth connection.
• Make sure the water reservoir is correctly fitted otherwise the unit will not operate properly.
• NOTE: When the water in the reservoir reaches to a certain level, please be careful when moving the
machine to avoid it tipping over.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS (CONTINUED):
REMOVING THE COLLECTED WATER:
There are two ways to remove collected water.
1. USE THE RESERVOIR
• When the unit is off and the reservoir is full, the indicator light will
flash.
• When the unit is on, if the reservoir is full, the compressor turns
off and the fan turns off after 30 seconds for drying the water
of the condenser, then the unit will beep 8 times and the Full
indicator light will flash. The digital display shows error P2.
• Slowly pull out the reservoir. 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 reservoir is uneven. If the reservoir is balanced on the floor, it will fall
and water will spill.
• Throw away the water and replace the reservoir. The reservoir must
be in place and securely seated for the dehumidifier to operate.
• The machine will re-start when the reservoir is re-inserted correctly.
• NOTES: When you remove the reservoir, do not touch any parts
inside of the unit. Doing so may damage the product. Be sure
to push the reservoir gently all the way into the unit. Banging
the reservoir against anything or failing to push it in securely
may cause the unit to stop operating. If water spills or is found
within the unit upon removing the reservoir, you must dry the
unit carefully.
IMPORTANT: When removing the reservoir, ensure the pump
hose is properly positioned before re-inserting the reservoir as
shown in Figure C.
2. CONTINUOUS DRAINAGE
Water can be automatically emptied into a floor drain by attaching
the unit with a water hose (5/16” diameter) with a 1” female threaded end.
• Install the drain hose onto the adapter A (see Figure D).
• Remove the plastic cover from the back drain outlet of the unit
and set aside and remove reservoir,then insert the drain hose
through the drain outlet of the unit and securely press it into
the connector on the front of the unit. (see Figure F)
• Tighten the adapter A and the unit by using two screws (placed
in the reservoir).
• Install the female threaded end of the water hose into the
adapter A (see Figure G), then lead the water hose to the floor
drain or a suitable drainage facility.

• Make sure the hose is secure so there are no leaks. Direct the hose toward the drain,making sure that
there are no kinks that will stop the water flow. Place the end of the hose into the drain and make sure
the end of the hose is level or down to let the water flow smoothly. Do never let it up.
• Place the reservoir back in the unit and make sure that it is seated correctly.
• Select the desired humidity setting and fan speed on the unit to
commence continuous draining.
3. PUMP DRAINAGE
Water can be automatically emptied into a floor drain by connecting
the unit pump to a 1/4” hose. Follow these instructions carefully:
• Remove the continuous drain hose and subassembly. Install
the plastic cover to the continuous drain hose outlet using two
screws (see Figure H)
• Reinsert the pump drain hose into the pupp drain hose outlet.
Push the hose onto the outlet a minimum of 3/4” for a secure fit.
• Press the pump button on the unit to activate the pumping
function. When the reservoir is full, the pump will operate for
3-5 minutes and empty the reservoir. Note that the pump may
produce a loud noise—this is normal.
• Make sure the hose is secure so there are no leaks. Direct the
hose toward the drain,making sure that there are no kinks that
will stop the water flow. Place the end of the hose into the drain
and make sure the end of the hose is level or down to let the
water flow smoothly. Do never let it up.
• Place the reservoir back in the unit and make sure that it is seated correctly.
• Select the desired humidity setting and fan speed on the unit to
commence continuous draining.
IMPORTANT: To clean the pump filter, remove the reservoir
from the unit and descend the pump. Clean the filter (as shown
in Figure I) using warm water. When re-inserting the pump filter,
ensure that the pump drain hose does not kink or block. Re-insert the reservoir and resume operation.
IMPORTANT: Do not operate the pump in near-freezing environments as this can cause permanent damage to your unit!

CARE & MAINTENANCE:
Figure 1
IMPORTANT: Turn the dehumidifier off and remove the plug
from the wall outlet before cleaning.
CLEANING 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.
CLEANING THE RESERVOIR:
Every few weeks, clean the reservoir to prevent growth of
mold, mildew and bacteria. Partially fill the reservoir with
clean water and add a little mild detergent. Swish it around in
the reservoir, empty and rinse.
or
Figure 2
NOTE: Do not use a dishwasher to clean the reservoir. After
cleaning, the reservoir must be in place and securely seated
for the dehumidifier to operate.
CLEANING THE AIR FILTER
• Remove the filter every two weeks based on normal operating conditions.
• Remove the filter from the top of the unit (Figure 1) or to
remove the filter, remove reservoir then pull filter
downwards (Figure 2).
• Wash the filter with clean water then dry. Re-install the filter,
replace the reservoir.
CAUTION: DO NOT operate the dehumidifier without a filter
because dirt and lint will clog it and reduce performance.
Figure 3
BEFORE STORING OR NOT USING A UNIT
FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME:
• After turning off the unit, wait one day before emptying the
reservoir.
• Clean the main unit, water reservoir and air filter.
• Wrap the cord and bundle it with the band (Figure 3). Cover
the unit with a plastic bag.
• Store the unit upright in a dry, well-ventilated place.
