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 object/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 designed 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 unit unless 5 minutes have passed since being turned off. This prevents damage to the compressor. • Never use the mains plug as a switch to start and turn off the dehumidifier. Use the provided ON/OFF button 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. • Do not place the unit next to heat sources (e.g. electrical fires, fireplaces, etc.) • 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. 2

****** Page 4 ****** • R290 has a low GWP (Global Warming Potential) of 3. • The CDIOL contains about 45g of R290 refrigerant gas. • The CD20L contains about 85g of R290 refrigerant gas. • Do not use or store the CD20L in an unventilated space with an area smaller than 4.1m2 per unit. • Do not use or store the CD IOL in an unventilated space with an area smaller than 2.2m2 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. • 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 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

****** Page 6 ****** INSTALLATION Remove any water from the water tank before starting the unit. In order to save energy, do not open windows or doors while the unit is running. Place the unit on a hard / flat surface. On first use run the unit continuously for 24 hrs. To reduce noise levels: Place a piece of carpet or a rubber mat under the unit to reduce any vibrations while the unit is running. The CD IOL and CD20L dehumidifiers use compressor technology to extract water from the environment. Compressor dehumidifiers are ideal for normal domestic or office environments which are heated during the winter months with temperatures above 12-150C. For areas where the temperature is lower than 180C we recommend our range of desiccant dehumidifiers. The dehumidifiers are designed to be easily moved and will extract unwanted humidity, with the desired humidity increments of 5% from 30-90% ensuring your room is not dried too much and power is not wasted.

****** Page 9 ****** QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE Power Button: Press to turn the dehumidifier on and off. Timer: Press the timer button to set the timer (1-24 hrs, start/stop timer). While the unit is running: The number displayed will represent the number of hours the unit will run before turning off. This will remain unaffected if unit goes in to defrost mode or the tank is emptied then reinserted. While the unit is in standby: The number displayed represents the period in hours after which the unit will start. To cancel the timer: repeatedly press the timer button until 0 is displayed UP and DOWN Buttons: Press the up or down button during operation to amend the desired humidity level. The relative humidity level can be set within a range of 30% to 90% in 5% increments. When the humidity 2% below the desired humidity set the compressor will stop and the unit will work for 3 minutes in fan only mode. When the humidity is 2% or more higher that the desired humidity set, the compressor will restart after a 3 minutes delay. LAUNDRY MODE: CD20L: Press the laundry mode button to automatically start the dehumidifier in laundry mode. The fan is set to high on laundry mode CDI OL: Use the down button to set the desired humidity to CO to operate continuously with maximum water extraction until the tank is full. Both units: Alternatively you can set the desired humidity to 350/0-400/0. Under 40% is very dry and the unit will work until water tank is full as lower levels are not very achievable in the UK domestic environment. Do not place clothes directly over any of the dehumidifier vents. Make sure that there is nothing blocking the hot air exhaust air flow and for best results place the laundry within 1.5 meters of the dehumidifier. Notes: If a permanent drainage pipe is fitted the unit will not stop operating. Setting the desired humidity to around 35% is good for laundry mode, a quick drying boost, or in emergencies. It is not recommended for long normal operation in a domestic or office environment. To allow more moisture in the air, press the up button and set to a higher desired humidity (e.g. 60-70%). We recommend setting the Humidity to 50-55%. This is great for domestic operation and dry storage Setting the humidity to 60% is great for personal comfort and applications where 50% RH is considered too dry Setting the humidity to 70% is ideal for unoccupied properties or where an economical run is needed without the need to reduce the humidity further. 8

****** Page 10 ****** OTHER FEATURES AND INDICATORS TANK FULL LIGHT When the water tank is full, removed or incorrectly inserted the unit will stop dehumidifying, the red tank full light will illuminate and the unit will beep. Empty the tank and reinsert it correctly to resume operation. AUTO DEFROST When frost builds up on the evaporator coils, the compressor will cycle off and the unit will go in to defrost mode. Following completion of the defrost mode, the unit will return to the previously operating settings. • When the unit is running in a room with a temperature between 50C and 120C, it will enter defrost mode roughly every 30 minutes. • When the unit is running in a room with a temperature between 120C and 200C, it will enter the defrost mode roughly every 45 minutes. HUMIDISTAT CONTROL AND FAN/COMPRESSOR OPERATION e When the humidity of the room is 2% lower than the desired humidity the compressor will turn off automatically but the fan will continue to operate to ensure that the air within the room is not stale. The unit will use only a minimal amount of energy in fan mode. When the humidity of the room is equal to or higher than the desired humidity the compressor will restart after a 3 minutes delay to protect the compressor. POWER After the unit has stopped, to protect the compressor it is not recommended to resume operation for at least 10 minutes. Operation can resume after this period lapses. When the unit is restarted there is a 3 minutes delay before compressor will start. LIGHTWEIGHT PORTABLE DESIGN The dehumidifier is built to be compact and lightweight. Your dehumidifier contains an advanced micro-CPU controlled device which is capable of self-diagnostics. The LCD display may also show the error and protections codes. 9

****** Page 11 ****** POSITIONING THE DEHUMIDIFIER A badly positioned dehumidifier will have little effect. In positioning the dehumidifier please ensure circulation of air in not restricted around the unit. Allow at least 20 cm space around the unit. This dehumidifier is designed only for indoor residential or small office applications and any commercial or industrial use will invalidate the warranty. Use in an enclosed area for maximum efficiency. Close all doors, windows to create an effective operating environment. Do not use outdoors. CQ Your electriQ dehumidifier will begin to protect your space from the harmful effects of excessive moisture as soon as it is turned on. Excess moisture is dispersed throughout your home. 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 home. A warm hallway or landing 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. For the most effective use, run your dehumidifier with external doors and windows kept closed. Please note the unit should not be placed directly against a radiator or other heat source. When positioning your electriQ dehumidifier, ensure that it is placed clear of any obstacle that may limit the air movement. Place the dehumidifier on a flat dry surface. Note: Do not force castors to move over carpet or uneven surfaces, nor move the unit with water in the tank as it may tip over and spill water. 10

****** Page 12 ****** WATER DRAINAGE When the water tank is full, the unit will stop automatically. When this happens the TANK FULL red light will show on the control panel, and the unit will bleep. NOTE: Only empty the water tank when it is full or before moving or storing the unit. There are two ways to dispense collected water. 1. USE THE TANK When the tank is full, the unit will automatically stop running, and the Tank Full indicator will flash. Slowly pull out the tank. Grip the tank by its handle securely, and carefully pull it out. Empty the water tank and reinsert it into the dehumidifier. The tank must be in place and securely seated for the dehumidifier to operate again. The dehumidifier will re-start when the tank is restored in its correct position. NOTES: When you remove the water tank, do not touch sensors or any parts which are situated behind tank. Doing so may damage the product. Be sure to push the tank gently all the way into the unit. Banging the bucket against anything or failing to push it in securely into place may cause the unit not to operate. Do not remove any parts from the water tank or tank enclosure. The water full sensor will no longer be able to detect the water level correctly and water may leak from the water tank. 2. CONTINUOUS DRAINAGE Water can be automatically plumbed in or drained into a sink, a larger recipient or through the wall into an outside drain by attaching a pipe to the unit (10 mm internal diameter) (not included). Insert the pipe into the drain outlet at the back of the unit as shown here. Make sure the connection between pipe and the drain outlet is tight and does not leak. Then direct the pipe to a suitable drainage point. This unit uses gravity to dispose of water hence the drain should be lower than the water outlet on the unit. Put the tank back. Be sure to run the water pipe downward and let the water to flow out smoothly. Do not kink or bend the pipe. The permanent drain can be used in conjunction with a water pump (e.g. when draining from a cellar) to lift the water upwards. 11

****** Page 13 ****** 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 approximately 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 then 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. 12

****** Page 14 ****** 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.
