Starting/Stopping the Dehumidifier

The dehumidifier should be upright for at least 2 hours before use.

NOTE:

■ Before turning on the dehumidifier, be sure that

the bucket is empty and fits all the way into the

dehumidifier.

■ Each time you unplug the dehumidifier or power

is interrupted, the controls will return to the

previous settings when power is restored.

■ Humidity displayed is between 30% Relative

Humidity and 90% Relative Humidity.

■ Humidity can be set between 30% Relative

Humidity and 80% Relative Humidity.

■ It's important to set the desired humidity level

to an achievable setting. To ensure energy-

efficient operation, only use the dehumidifier in

a closed space, with no open windows or other

sources of moist air (to avoid continuous running).

■ Operating temperature is between 38ºF to 90ºF

(3.2ºC to 32.2ºC).

At temperatures of 38ºF(3.2ºC)or less,

water freezes inside the product. At
