properly set up and begin to use your dehumidfiier.
1. The dehumidifier should be kept upright. If for any reason it has not been
stored upright while in your possession, set the unit in the upright position
for a minimum of 24 hours before initial start.
2. Press the POWER button to turn the dehumidifier ON.
3. Using the + and — buttons, set the humidity to 30%RH for the first 24 hours
of operation.
4. After the 24 hours, set the desired humidity using the + and — buttons.
Recommended humidity is between 45~55%RH.
5. When unpacking the dehumidifier, note that the foam inside the float mechanism
in the bucket should NOT be removed. Without this foam piece, the
dehumidifier will not operate properly and water can overflow.

O Start Operation
1) Ensure that the unit is plugged into a properly designated
power outlet.
2) Insert the plug into a suitable wall outlet. The dehumidifier
is suitable for operation on an electricity supply having the
same voltage as that shown on its rating label.
3) Place the unit in an upright position on a flat, level, steady,
stable, heat-resistant surface. Make sure there is nothing
flammable or heat sensitive within 39 inches
(100 cm) of the unit. Operating the unit in any other
position is hazardous.
4) Make sure the bucket is placed in the proper position.
(After switching the unit ON for the first time, the "Bucket
Full" light may illuminate. Pull the bucket out, check that
the "float" lever is able to move freely, then push the
bucket back to the proper position.)
@® When Bucket Full Light Is On
When the bucket is full, the unit will stop running, beep 5 times,
and the"Bucket Full" light will illuminate. To empty the bucket,
carefully slide the bucket out from the bottom front of the unit.
Hold the bucket with both hands to avoid spilling. Once the
bucket has been emptied, return the bucket to its proper position
by sliding the empty bucket back into place. The unit will start up
and run normally.
Hold bucket with two hands
when emptying.
When operating in low temperatures (less than 54°F/12°C) the surface of the
evaporator may accumulate frost and effect the efficiency of the dehumidifier.
When this happens, the unit will automatically go into "Defrost" mode. This is
normal and the "Defrost" light will illuminate. Once the unit is done defrosting, it
will resume running as normal. The unit can operate in temperatures down to 41°
F/5°C. Defrost times may vary. If the dehumidifier freezes up, turn the unit off for
a few hours and then restart. It is not recommended to use the dehumidifier in
temperatures below 41°F/5°C.
The "Continuous Drainage” function can be started with the following steps.
1. To save having to periodically empty the bucket,
this unit can be set for continuous drainage. Use
the supplied drain hose and connect it to the
continuous drainage connector located on the
back righthand side of the unit..

/. Tighten the drain cover in clockwise direction
onto the rear of the unit.
When using the "Continuous Drainage” function, a regular garden hose can be
used in place of the drain hose provided. Avoid uneven ground and folding of
the hose. The hose should go on a downward slope and be free of folds/kinks
in order to properly drain into the drain hole. The hose length should not
exceed 6 ft.

For safety reasons, make sure the dehumidifier is unplugged
before servicing or cleaning. mp
1) Cleaning the unit:
A. Wipe the unit with a clean, soft cloth.
B. If the dehumidifier is very dirty, use a moist cloth with a mild detergent to clean, then
wipe off the detergent with a semi-dry cloth.
Л CAUTION: Do not wash the machine with a hose or immerse it in water. This may
result in electrocution.
Cleaning the air filter:
The purpose of the air filter is to filter dust and other materials from the air. If the filter
Is blocked with dust, the electricity usage will be higher than normal. For optimal
moisture removal and efficiency, clean the filter every 2 weeks.
O Cleaning Steps:
1. Remove and empty bucket.
2. Pull the air filter out gently from the bottom of the front panel.
3. Clean the filter with a vacuum cleaner or wash it with clean, luke warm water and dry
