****** Page 6 ****** How It Works This product is a dehumidifier. It controls relative humidity by passing the air through the unit, forcing the excess moisture to condensate over the cooling elements. Contact with this cold surface causes the moisture in the air to condense. This condensed water then drains safely into the water tank. The dried air then passes through the condenser where it is slightly warmed and re-enters the room at a slightly elevated temperature. Where To Position Excess moisture will travel throughout your home, in the same way that cooking smells waft to every room in the house. For this reason, the dehumidifier should be positioned, so that it can draw this moist air towards it from all over the home. Alternatively, if you have a serious problem In one area you can begin by positioning the dehumidifier close to this area and later moving it to a more central point. When positioning the dehumidifier, ensure that it is placed on a level surface and that there is a minimum of 45 cm of space on either side of the unit to allow for efficient airflow. This dehumidifier is fitted with castors for extra mobility, if you move the unit, it should first be switched off and the water tank emptied. We do not recommend the use of an extension lead, so please try to ensure that the unit is sufficiently close to a fixed mains socket. When the dehumidifier is in operation, outside doors and windows should be closed for most effective and efficient operation. 6

****** Page 10 ****** Drainage While the water tank is full, the compressor will stop for self-protection and the “water tank full” indicator light will turn on. To remove the water tank, pull it out squarely. After empting the water tank, replace the water tank carefully back into its original location. The tank must be properly in place in order for the “water tank full” light to go out and for your dehumidifier to start operating again. Please note, if the water tank has not been positioned correctly, the “water tank full” indicator will stay on and the product will not operate. CONTINUOUS DRAINAGE When the dehumidifier is operated at very high humidity levels, the water tank will require more frequent emptying. In this situation, it may be more convenient to set the unit up for continuous drainage, this can be done as follows; 2. Place the dehumidifier on a level surface Unscrew the cap on the back of the unit to access the hose nozzle. * Please note, the water tube is not supplied with the unit. 3. Thread a garden hose onto the accessible nozzle, lead to a floor drain and cut to length. Make sure there are no kinks or knots in the garden hose. * P/ease note, the water tube is not supplied with the unit. 4. Turn the unit ON and press the MODE button and select CONTINUOUS. IMPORTANT NOTES Spout connection for continuous drainage Placing the dehumidifier on an uneven surface or improper hose installation may result in water filling up the water tank and causing the unit to shut off. Empty the water tank if auto-matic shut off occurs, then check the dehumidifier location and hose for proper set up. The bucket must be in place and securely positioned for the dehumidifier to operate. 10

****** Page 12 ****** Trouble shooting THE UNIT DOES NOT OPERATE: Is the unit plugged in? Is the house electricity on? Is the room temperature below 50C or above 320C? If so, then it is out of the working range of the unit. Ensure the ON/OFF switch is turned on. Check the water tank is located properly in the unit and it is not full. Make sure the air inlet and outlet are not obstructed. THE UNIT SEEMS TO DO NOTHING. Is the filter dusty, contaminated? Is the air intake or outlet blocked? Is the room humidity already quite low? THE UNIT SEEMS TO DO LITTLE. Are too many windows or doors open? Is there something in the room producing lots of humidity? THE UNIT IS TOO NOISY: Check whether the unit is sitting on a level surface. FROST APPEARS ON THE COILS: The temerature is less than 50C. THE UNIT IS LEAKING Make sure the unit is on a level surface and the water tank is fitted correctly Check that the water tank is not damaged. If using in continuous mode, check the hose is fitted correctly. ERROR CODES: EH – Humidity sensor fault. El or E2 – Temperature sensor fault. E3 Lack of gas to protect.
