Energy Saving and Unit Safety Protection Tips
• Do not cover or restrict the airflow from the outlet or inlet grills.
• For maximum performance the minimum distance from a wall or objects
should be 50 cm
• Keep the filters or grills of the unit clean. Under normal conditions, filters or
grills should only need cleaning once every two weeks (approximately). Do not
use the unit without the air filter as this will allow dirt to gather inside the
dehumidifier and could invalidate the warranty. A dirty filter will restrict the air
flow into the machine which will increase the resistance on the fan and could
result in damage and might invalidate the warranty.
Since the filters remove airborne particles, more frequent cleaning maybe
necessary, depending on the air quality. Vacuum and wash the mesh filters with
hot soapy water and dry them before placing them back in the unit. Do not
allow grease, oil or any contaminants to be absorbed into dehumidifier.

Protection and Diagnosis
After working for 30 minutes if the compressor coil sensor reach -1℃,
unit will stop to defrost. This is normal operation.
If the detected temperature exceed the operation range, unit will
indicate E1 error code which is temperature sensor fault. In such a
mode unit will be with dehumidifying 30 minutes and defrosting for
15 minutes. This is normal operation and will recover as soon the
temperature will change.
If the detected humidity exceed the operation range, the
dehumidifier will indicate E2 humidity sensor error. Unit will work
trying to dehumidify continuously.
After the temperature and humidity fails back within main operating
range unit will start operating again.
Positioning the dehumidifier
Badly positioned dehumidifiers will have little effect in effectively drying the
place. In positioning the dehumidifier please ensure circulation of air in not
restricted around the unit. Please observe figure bellow in installing the unit.
Your AMCOR dehumidifier will begin to protect your space from the harmful
effects of excessive moisture as soon as it is turned on.
Excess moisture travels throughout your place, in the same way that cooking
smells spread around the house. For this reason, the dehumidifier should be
positioned in a central and clear location so that it can draw this moist air
towards it from all over the place. A warmer spot is an excellent position for
your dehumidifier. If possible, leave interior doors ajar to allow air circulation.
Alternatively, if you have a serious problem in one area you can begin by
positioning the dehumidifier there and moving it to a more central location at a
later date. Please note the unit should not be placed directly against a
radiator or other heat source.
When positioning your AMCOR dehumidifier, ensure that it is placed securely
on a level surface clear of any obstacle that may limit the air movement.
This dehumidifier is designed only for indoor residential / office and
commercial / industrial applications.
Place the dehumidifier on a flat dry surface.
The dehumidifier must be operated in an enclosed area to be most effective.
Close all doors, windows to create the best operating environment.
Do not use outdoors.
Water Drainage
This unit was designed to extract a very large amount of water while being
compact and portable.
Continuous draining
This dehumidifier has a continuous drain hole that can be connected with a
plastic pipe. The water in the body will drain through the drain hole.
Water can be automatically plumbed in or drained into sink, a larger external
tank or bucket or through the wall into an outside drain by attaching a pipe to
the unit. A standard pipe is supplied with the unit.
Insert the pipe into the drain outlet at the back of the unit. Make sure the
connection between pipe and the drain outlet is tight and do not leak. Then
direct the pipe to a suitable drainage point. This unit uses gravity fall to dispose
water hence the drain should be lower than the dehumidifier water outlet.
Be sure to run the water pipe downward and let the water to flow out
smoothly. Do not kink or bend the pipe.
NOTE: The permanent drain can be used in conjunction with water pump (e.g.
when draining a cellar) to lift the water upwards. Certain models may feature
and embedded pump.
Care and Maintenance
Always switch off the unit and unplug from the mains before cleaning or
performing any maintenance. When it is not in use for long periods it is advised to
remove the plug from the plug socket. Do not use chemical solvents (such as
benzene, alcohol or gasoline) as they may cause irreversible damage to the unit.
Filter Cleaning
Air-inlet and air-outlet may gather dust easily, please clean it often with a soft,
damp cloth. If the filter is covered by dust, the airflow and the performance of
the unit will be affected, it may even cause machine damage. We recommend
that you regularly clean the filter. Let the unit dry before reuse.
1. Take the air inlet grill out first than remove the filter from the unit.
2. Clean the filter with a vacuum cleaner or soft-brush.
3. Replace the filter in position.
Grille and Case Cleaning
Use water and a mild detergent. Do not use bleach or abrasives. Do not splash water
directly onto the main unit. Doing so may cause an electrical shock and can lead to the
insulation to deteriorate, or cause the unit to rust. The air intake and outlet grilles get
soiled easily, so use a vacuum attachment or soft brush to clean.
Out of season storage
1. Turn off the unit and wait for the
drying cycle to finish before unplugging the
power cord.
2. Clean and dry the water-tank.
3. Clean the filter, air-inlet, air-outlet and
unit body.
4. Coil the power cord in the holder
5. Cover the unit to prevent it from
gathering dust.
6. Store the dehumidifier in a cool and
dry place.
