Important Electrical Information
This dehumidifier has been designed to work on ordinary
household current. However, to avoid any unnecessary
power interruptions, it is not recommended for use on a
circuit containing other electrical equipment such as air
conditioners, refrigerators or freezers. For your safety and
protection, the power cord on this dehumidifier has been
equipped with a grounding plug that must be plugged into a
properly grounded receptacle. If the receptacle that you
intend to use does not accept the grounding connector, or if
you are unsure if your receptacle is properly grounded, you
should have a properly grounded outlet installed.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES MODIFY THE
GROUNDING PLUG IN ORDER TO MAKE IT FIT A
RECEPTACLE.
Where To Position Your Dehumidifier
For best results, the dehumidifier should be operated in an
enclosed area. Close all doors and windows and other
outside openings to the room, as performance is greatly
influenced by the rate at which new moisture enters the room.
When positioning the dehumidifier in the room, be sure there
are no restrictions to the air flowing into or out of the
dehumidifier. For the best performance, allow at least 12
inches (30cm) around the unit.
Humidity Control
Turn the humidity control to the off position (fully
counterclockwise) and plug into a properly grounded
receptacle. You are now ready to set the humidity control to
start the dehumidification process. Turn the humidity
control clockwise until the dehumidifier starts. Initially, it is
recommended that the humidity control be turned completely
clockwise. Allow the dehumidifier to run continuously for
three or four days, or until the desired level of dryness has
been achieved. Once the desired humidity level has been
reached, turn the humidity control counterclockwise until the
dehumidifier just shuts off. The dehumidifier will now cycle
automatically, maintaining the desired level of humidity that
you have set. You may adjust this setting at anytime. By
turning the humidity control clockwise, a lower humidity level
can be achieved.
Fan Speed Switch
Some models are equipped with a two speed fan switch.
For faster moisture removal, it is recommended to use the
#2 setting. The #1 setting will provide for quieter operation.
NOTE: OPERATING A DEHUMIDIFIER IN A COOL
ENVIRONMENT MAY CAUSE FROSTING OR ICE BUILD
UP ON THE EVAPORATOR COILS THAT WILL PREVENT
THE COLLECTION OF MOISTURE.

Introduction
Congratulations, and thank you for purchasing our high
quality dehumidifier. When the dehumidifier has been
removed from the carton, it is completely assembled and
ready for use. This product has been manufactured to the
highest standard with safety and efficiency in mind, so please
take a few minutes to understand its components and
operating instructions. The following sections deal with
information on basic electrical safety, selecting the proper
location for optimum performance, the control panel,
components, and care for this product.

Frost Guard
On models that are equipped with the frost guard feature,
the compressor turns off automatically in the event of a
frost build up. See the enclosed graph. Do not operate
your dehumidifier in the shaded area. Particularly if your
model is not equipped with the frost guard feature, as
continued use in the shaded area could damage your unit.
The shaded area indicates when the air temperature and/or
relative humidity are too low to allow the extraction of
moisture from the air.
checked on a regular basis to make sure it is clean. A
dirt-choked filter will block the air flow and reduce the
efficiency of the dehumidifier. To access the filter, remove
the water reservoir and pull the filter out by the pull-tab
located at the bottom of the filter. Remove the foam filter
from the plastic frame and gently wash in a mild solution of
household detergent. Rinse, and thoroughly blot dry.
Inspect the filter for holes and replace if necessary. Place
the clean filter into the frame and insert the filter and frame
into the dehumidifier.
Water Collection
The water can be collected in the front mount water
reservoir or can be routed to a floor drain via a garden hose
connection at the base of the water reservoir. It can also be
placed directly over a floor drain. Before connecting a
garden hose or positioning the unit directly over a floor drain,
it is necessary to remove the plastic blocking disc at the
base of the threaded connector. This can be done with a drill
using a 3/8” drill bit.
Cleaning The Exterior Surface Of The Dehumidifier
Exterior surfaces may be cleaned with a mild solution of
dish washing detergent and water. Under no circumstances,
should this dehumidifier be immersed directly in a cleaning
solution.Before washing, unplug the dehumidifier. Use a
moistened sponge or soft cloth to clean the surface, then
gently wipe dry.

Water Reservoir
For your convenience, we have located the water reservoir
at the front of the dehumidifier. It is equipped with an
integrated lid which has been designed to prevents spills
when removing and emptying the reservoir. When the
reservoir is full, the dehumidifier shuts off. The
dehumidifier is also equipped with a signal light (See Fig.1)
that indicates that the reservoir is full.
To remove the reservoir, use the front finger pull located at
bottom of the reservoir and slide it forward. Once in the
forward position, use the integrated side mount handles to
lift the reservoir for emptying. When the reservoir is
reinstalled, the unit will resume operation.

The fan motor used on your dehumidifier is pre-lubricated.
Under ordinary circumstances, the fan will not require
servicing or oiling during the life of the dehumidifier.
BEFORE SEEKING SERVICE
Before you take your dehumidifier in for servicing, please
check the following:
1. Unit is not working:
· Unit is unplugged. Ensure the unit is properly plugged
into a grounded receptacle.
· Fuse has blown or breaker is tripped. (check outlet
with a lamp) Replace fuse or reset breaker.
· Check the humidity control setting. The selected
humidity level has been achieved. Turn control clock
wise if a lower humidity level is desired.
· Water reservoir is full. Empty reservoir and resume
operation.
2. Moisture removals seems inefficient
· Air temperature and/or relative humidity may be
too low to allow the extraction of moisture from
the air. Raising the room temperature may help.
(see Fig. 2)
· Air flow may be restricted. Is the unit located in an
appropriate location to allow the maximum amount
of air flow through the coils? If the unit is sitting too
close to the wall, air flow may be restricted. Also
check for a plugged filter.
· The selected humidity level has been achieved. Turn
clockwise to achieve a lower level of humidity.
Important Notice:
Before restarting your dehumidifier, it is important to wait
3 to 4 minutes after the compressor stops running. This
allows time for the system’s internal pressures
to equalize.
