Read all instructions
before using this dehumidifier.
To reduce the risk of fire,
electric shock, or injury to persons when using your dehumidifier, follow basic
precautions, including the following:
Important
Safety
Instructions
For Your Safety
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of
this or any other appliance. Read product labels for flammability and other warnings.
Avoid fire hazard or
electric shock. Do not use an extension
cord or an adaptor plug. Do net remove

Child Safety
Precautions
Destroythe carton, plastic bags, and any packing materials immediately after the
dehumidifier is unpacked. Children should never use these items for play
Do not leave children unattended in an area where the appliance is operating.
Do not allow them to sit or stand on the appliance.
Electrical
Information
For your safety and protection, this dehumidifier is equipped with a three-prong
grounding plug on the power cord. Do not, under any circumstances, cut or
remove the round ground prong from the plug.
Your dehumidifier must be plugged directly into a properly grounded and
polarized three-prong receptacle. If the wall receptacle you intend to use will not
accept a three-prong plug, or if you are not sure the outlet is adequately
grounded or protected by a time delay fuse or circuit breaker, have a qualified
electrician install the proper outlet according to the National Electrical Code and
applicable local codes and ordinances. Do not use an extension cord or an
adapter plug.
Never unplug the dehumidifier by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the
plug firmly and pull straight out from the receptacle.
Do not pinch, bend, or knot the power cord.
Selecting
a Location
IMPORTANT:
1. Dehumidifier
must be operated in an enclosed area to be most effective.
Close all doors, windows,
and other outside openings to the room. The
effectiveness
of the dehumidifier
depends on the rate at which new
moisture-laden
air enters the room.
2. Place dehumidifier
in a location that does not restrict airflow through the
front of the unit or out of the louvers on the sides of cabinet.
3. 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. It may be necessary
to install a second dehumidifier
in the enclosed area for satisfactory
drying.
4. The dehumidifier
must be installed on a level floor that will support it
with a full bucket of water.
5. There should be a minimum of 12 inches clearance around the dehumidifier.
How
It Works
When the unit is started, the fan begins to pull moisture-laden air across the
dehumidifying coils. The coils condense or draw moisture from the air, and air flows
through the side louvers into the room as dry, warm air. Moisture removed from air
is collected in a bucket on the front of the dehumidifier.
The unit is designed to operate between 41°F (5°C), and 96°F (35°C).
If the unit is switched off and needs to be switched on again, wait three minutes
before doing so.
Make sure the tank is fitted correctly otherwise unit will not turn on.
