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 dehumidifier has been tested and is safe to use. However, as with any electrical appliance – use it with care. Disconnect the power before dismantling, assembling or cleaning. Avoid touching any moving parts of 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 a power outlet is not available, one should be installed by a qualified electrician. Never operate this appliance if the cord, power adapter or plug is damaged. Ensure the power cord is not stretched or exposed to sharp objects/edges. A damaged power 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. Do not tilt the unit while in use. The unit is design to work only in vertical position. This dehumidifier must always be stored and transported upright, otherwise irreparable damage may be caused to the compressor; if in doubt we suggest waiting at least 24 hours before starting the unit. • Avoid restarting the dehumidifier unless 5 minutes have passed since being turned off. This prevents damage to the compressor. Never use the plug as a switch to start or turn off the dehumidifier. Use the provided ON/OFF switch located on the control panel. Always place the unit on a dry and stable surface. The appliance should not be installed in laundry or wet rooms where the humidity is higher than 85% RH Do not dry laundry above the unit to prevent water entering the dehumidifier. Place the laundry at least 1 meter away from your dehumidifier. Before moving the appliance the water tank should be emptied. 2

****** Page 4 ****** The handle on the appliance is designed to aid in its movement and should not be used to support the full weight of the dehumidifier. When carrying the unit, it should be kept upright and suifficiently supported from its base. The handle should not be used if there is any signs of damage to its fixings. The appliance must be placed in a room without sources of ignition (for example: open flames, an operating gas appliance or an operating electric heater). R290 refrigerant gas complies with European environmental directives. R290 has a low GWP (Global Warming Potential) of 3. The CDI 2PW contains about 55g of R290 refrigerant gas. Do not use or store the appliance in an unventilated space with an area smaller than 2.6m2 per unit. If the appliance is installed, used or stored in an unventilated room, the room must be such as to prevent stagnation of possible leaks of refrigerant gas as there could be a danger of fire or explosion should the refrigerant come into contact with electric heaters, stoves or other sources of ignition. Refrigerant gas may be odourless. Do not use the product and contact the retailer for advice, if damage has occurred to the unit which may have compromised the refrigerant system. Any repairs or maintenance must only be carried out on the unit by a suitably qualified engineer. Before opening and servicing the unit the authorized engineer must be in possession of a copy of the manufacturer’s service manual and must follow the safety information contained within it to ensure all hazards are minimized. The refrigerant system should not be perforated or punctured. Do not place the unit next to heat sources (e.g. electrical fires, fireplaces, etc.) • Avoid mishandling the dehumidifier. Dropping, throwing the unit can cause damage to its internals and increases the risks of operating it. Do not store or use gasoline, petrol, paint, solvents or other flammable vapours or liquids in the vicinity of this dehumidifier or any other appliance. This dehumidifier must not be used in spaces where there is a high concentration of gases, solvent or other volatile organic compounds; in very dusty environments; in any domestic, commercial or industrial environment where the air composition is flammable. ENERGY SAVING AND UNIT SAFETY PROTECTION TIPS Do not cover or restrict the airflow from the outlet or inlet grills. Do not operate and follow troubleshoot procedure if the self-opening louvers do not open on power on. For maximum performance the minimum distance from a wall or objects should be 20 cm Keep the filters or grills of the unit clean. Under normal conditions, filters or grills should only need cleaning once every three weeks (approximately). Since the filters remove airborne particles, more frequent cleaning maybe necessary, depending on the air quality. Vacuum both mesh and optional carbon filters and wash the mesh filters with hot soapy water and dry them before placing them back in the unit. 3

CARE AND MAINTENANCE Always shut 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 advisable to remove the plug from the power socket. Do not use chemical solvents (such as benzene, alcohol or gasoline) as they may cause irreversible damage to the unit. 1. CLEAN THE GRILLE AND CASE Use water and a mild detergent to clean the washable mesh filters. 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. Wipe the dehumidifier body with a soft damp cloth or kitchen towel. Remove the ABS filter frame. If the optional carbon filters are fitted, remove them from the frame and hoover gently approcimately every 2-3 weeks. If the mesh filter is dirty hoover it, if it is heavily soiled wash it with warm soapy water and dry thoroughly before reinserting it in the unit. When filter cleaning is finished and filters are dry placed them back into the unit. NOTE: While the carbon filter is optional never run the unit without the mesh filter frame correctly inserted. 2. CLEAN THE WATER TANK Every few weeks, clean the tank to prevent growth of mould, mildew and bacteria. Partially fill the tank with clean water and add a little mild detergent. Swish it around and than empty the tank and rinse. NOTE: Do not use a dishwasher to clean the tank. After cleaning and drying, the tank must be reinserted securely into dehumidifier in order to restart operation. END OF SEASON MAINTENANCE 1. Empty and clean the water tank. 2. Clean the unit and the filters as per cleaning procedure above. 3. Coil the power cord on the special cord storage rest at the back of the unit 4. Cover the unit and keep it in a dry place. 23

****** Page 25 ****** FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Why doesn’t the dehumidifier seem to extract much water if the temperature is low? This is a compressor dehumidifier which works best in temperatures above 150C. If the temperature is low and the air is dryer than the setting on the humidistat the unit will not extract water. If you want to use a dehumidifier for outside buildings, unheated properties, boats or garages please check our desiccant range. Why doesn’t the unit work lor stops suddenly? The water tank may be full or displaced. To rectify: empty the tank and carefully place the tank back in the unit. Also the unit may be running in dehumidifying mode with a low room temperature. Please check if the room temperature is lower than 50C. If so, the unit will stop working while in dehumidifying mode. (unit may be defrosting). The ambient operating range is between 50C and 350C with a relative humidity ranging from 30% to 80%. For maximum efficiency use the unit between 150C and 320C. Sometimes cold and/or hot air comes out from the air outlet grill, why? When the unit is in dehumidifying mode it absorbs humid air from room and freezes it to reduce the humidity. During the cold cycle there should be cold air coming out of the unit During the hot cycle hot dry air should be coming out of the outlet grill.
