CHOOSING A LOCATION
A Dehumidifier operating in a basement will have little or no effect in
drying out an adjacent enclosed storage area, such as a closet,
unless there is adequate circulation of air in and out of the area.
« Do notuse outdoors.
* This dehumidifier is intended for indoor use only. Place the
dehumidifier on a smooth, level floor surface that is strong enough to
support the unit with a full bucket of water.
Allow atleast 12"-18" of air flow on all sides.
Place the dehumidifier 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.
Use the dehumidifier in cooking, laundry, bathing and dishwashing
areas that have excessive moisture. NOTE: Place the dehumidifier
away from a clothes dryer.
Use the dehumidifier to prevent moisture damage anywhere books
or valuables are stored.
Use the dehumidifierin a basement to help prevent moisture.
* The dehumidifier must be operated in an enclosed area to be most
effective.
Close all doors, windows and other outside openings to the room.
AUTOMATIC DEFROST
When frost builds up on the evaporator coils, the compressor will cycle off and the fan will continue
to run until the frost disappears. When the coils are completely defrosted, the compressor or fan
(depending on the model) will automatically restart and dehumidification will resume.
CONTINUOUS MODE—GARDEN HOSE INSTALLATION AND SETUP
Water can be automatically emptied by attaching a hose to the continuous drainage port on the back
of the dehumidifier. This will allow the unit to run continuously (depending on the selected humidity
level) without having to empty the water bucket. To drain, simply attach a standard garden hose (not
included). The thread standard for garden hoses in the US and its territories is known as GHT or
"garden hose thread" which has an outer diameter of 1 1/16 inches (1.0625 inches or 27.0 mm) and a
pitch of 11.5 TPI.
Place dehumidifier on a level surface.
Unscrew the cap on the back of the unit to access the garden hose nozzle
« Thread a garden hose (not supplied) onto the accessible nozzle, lead to a floor drain and cut to
length. Make sure that there are no kinks or knots in the garden hose. (See picture next page)
« Turnon the unitand press the MODE button until setto CONTINUOUS.
