Carefully read the instructions before operating the unit This appliance is for indoor use only Rating: This unit must only be connected to a 220-240 V / 50 Hz earthed outlet. Installation must be in accordance with regulations of the country where the unit is used. • If you are in any doubt about the suitability of your electrical supply have it checked and, if necessary, modified by a qualified electrician. This air cooler has been tested and is safe to use. However, as with any electrical appliance use it with care. Disconnect the appliance from the power socket before changing filters, dismantling, assembling or cleaning. Avoid touching any moving parts within the appliance. Never insert fingers, pencils or any other objects though the guard. This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities. It is also not intended for use by those with a lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Do not leave children unsupervised with this appliance. Do not clean the unit by spraying it or immersing it in water. Never connect the unit to an electrical outlet using an extension cord. If an outlet is not available, one should be installed by a qualified electrician. Never operate this appliance if the cord or plug is damaged. Ensure the power cord is not stretched or exposed to sharp objects/edges. A damaged supply cord should be replaced by the manufacturer or a qualified electrician in order to avoid a hazard. Any service other than regular cleaning or filter replacement should be performed by an authorized service representative. Failure to comply could result in a voided warranty. Do not use the appliance for any purpose other than its intended use. Never use the mains plug as a switch to start and stop the air cooler. Use the provided ON/OFF button located on the control panel. Always place the unit on a dry and stable surface. Do not move or tilt the unit when the water tanks are full. The appliance should not be installed in laundry or wet rooms. Do not use this unit in environments with flammable or explosive gases. Avoid keeping the unit in direct sunlight for a long period of time. Energy Saving and Unit Safety Protection Tips e Do not cover or restrict the airflow from the outlet or inlet grills. • For maximum performance the distance between the unit and a wall or objects should be at least 50cm. • While in operation, ensure that the level of the water tank does not exceed MAX and does not fall below MIN • Keep the filters clean. Under normal conditions, filters should only need cleaning once every three weeks (approximately). Since the filters remove airborne particles, more frequent cleaning may be necessary, depending on the air quality. • In order to achieve maximum efficiency the unit should be placed near an open door or window. Evaporative Air Coolers work with an evaporative cooling mechanism which requires cross ventilation. This unit will lose efficiency if the relative humidity within the room exceeds 60%. The ambient operating temperature range is from 50C to 400C. If used in low temperatures (as a humidifier) it is recommended to fill the water tank with warm (but not hot) water. Page 3 of 9

When water evaporates into the air, the result is a mixture of air and water molecules. This chemical change requires heat which is taken from the water molecules, resulting in a spot cooling effect. HoneyctYTtb Cooling b/cdia Warm and dry Water Evaporative Air Cooling Mechanism Cold and humid air The recommended relative humidity for optimum operation is 60% or lower. A drier climate makes for more noticeable cooling. The evaporative air cooler should not be used in enclosed or sealed spaces. It must be kept level and there must be water in the tank. Doors and windows should be open to allow free air flow. The evaporative air cooler works best when placed near an open window / air current. The evaporative air cooler can also be used to humidify dry environments (during cool weather). To be used for humidification the windows and doors should be closed to allow the humidified air to accumulate. The evaporative air cooler is not an air conditioner as it does not use a compressor or refrigerant. It should not be expected to cool as effectively as a refrigerated air conditioner. When the product is used for the first time the Honeycomb cooling media will have an odour, this should dissipate within a week of use. Page 4 of 9

****** Page 5 ****** PARTS LIST Honeycomb Filter Frame Control panel Water tank 2 Water tank 1 Air outlet Perfumebox Wheels Ice box Remote control Please Note: Both water tanks are part of the main unit, and are not removable. INSTALLATION This unit can easily be moved from one room to another. While moving the unit please note that it must always be kept upright and then placed on an even surface. Remove all packaging — while keeping the air cooler in a vertical position. Make sure that all parts are present and that the unit is assembled correctly – including the castor wheels (these need to be pushed into place on the base of the unit) Water tank: Fill the top water tank (2) with water ensuring that water tank (1) does not to go above the MAX level visible on the front of the unit. When humidifying, the water level must not be lower than the MIN water line. If you want to increase the cooling effect, you can put ice or the charged ice packs into the water tank (1), but be sure that by adding ice or icepacks the water level does not go over the MAX limit. Empty some water if necessary via the drain on the back of the unit. Make sure that the filter pad is properly inserted into the back of the unit. Connect the power plug to a working socket, and then press the power button. ICE BOX The ice box can absorb the heat in the water, which in turn can lower the temperature of the water tank. This can make the air flow cooler. • Remove the ice box and put it in the freezer until it is totally frozen • Put the frozen ice box into water tank 1. Page 5 of 9

****** Page 7 ****** CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE ATTENTION: Please shut off the unit and unplug from the mains before cleaning or performing any maintenance. CLEANING THE SURFACE Clean the plastic housing with a duster or a soft wet cloth. Do not use chemical solvents (such as benzene, alcohol or gasoline) as they may cause irreversible damage. Make sure no water enters the control panel. CLEANING THE WATER TANK Unplug the power cord and remove the honeycomb filter bracket. With a cloth (dipped in a mild detergent), wipe the water tank. Before using the unit, the tank should be rinsed by filling the tank and allowing it to drain through the drain port Draining the water reservoir and refilling with fresh water at least once a week will help reduce any mineral deposits and keep the filters clean. Do not run the unit in Humidify mode with stale water in the tank. We recommend emptying the tank and refilling it with fresh water if water has been standing in the tank for an extended period of time. MAINTAINING AND CHANGING THE HONEYCOMB FILTER PADS The appliance is supplied with Honeycomb cooling / filters pads. The cleaning frequency for the Honeycomb filter depends on local air and water conditions. In areas where the mineral content of water is high (hard water), mineral deposits may build up on the honeycomb cooling filter and restrict air flow. If mineral deposits remain on the Honeycomb pads, the filter should be removed and washed under fresh water. For a deeper clean a mild detergent should be used with a soft brush. Once cleaned the filter should be rinsed in clean water before leaving to dry. We recommend cleaning the honeycomb filter at least every two months, depending on your needs. For best results, allow the honeycomb filter to dry after each use by turning off the EVA/COOLING function and running the unit as a fan for 15 minutes before turning the unit off.
