Humidity level can be set within a range of 35% RH (Relative Humidity) to 80% RH in 5% increments. HIGH LOW The SMART mode is designed for maximum convenience maintaining SMART MODE ideal domestic environment humidity setting of 50-55% RH while saving FAN electricity. This is the default mode and is recommended for most users. Compressor will work until desired humidity is measured than will stop; unit working in the economical low fan mode only. The fan will move the air around the room ensuring the entire air in the room is processed and humidity correctly measured. For drier air/ laundry mode press the key and set to a lower percent value (e.g. 35-45%). Laundry Mode: for the dehumidifier to operate continuously with maximum water extraction until the tank is full set the humidity level to 35%-50%RH. 35% is very dry and the unit will work until water tank is full as 35%RH is hardly achievable in UK domestic environment. Set the fan to high on laundry mode and the louvres either to swing mode or to 45 degrees directing the airflow onto clothes / laundry dryer. 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. Note: In the high-speed and low-speed dehumidification mode, through, keys set humidity of 35%, the machine is running clothes drying modes, then the machine will have been working on dehumidification, even if the ambient humidity is less than 35%, the compressor will not go down. This model applies to drying clothes and other occasions. that if permanent drainage pipe is fitted the unit will not stop operation. Humidity set to achieve room humidity of around 35% good for quick drying boost on initial run or emergencies, laundry mode. Not recommended for long normal operation in domestic/ office environment. For allowing more moisture in the air, press the humidity control key and set to a higher percent value (e.g. 60- 70%). 8 Humidity set to 50-55% RH; recommended setting, great for domestic operation and dry storage Humidity set to 60% RH; great for personal comfort and applications where 50% RH is considered too dry Humidity set to 70% RH; ideal for unoccupied properties or where economical run is needed without the need to go drier than 70% RH. Other features and Indicators Tank Full Light Red light will be on and the unit will beep when the tank is ready to be emptied, or when the tank is removed or not replaced in the proper position. The water level control switch shuts off the dehumidifier when the tank is full, or when the tank is removed or not replaced in the proper position. Empty and replace 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. When the unit is running in a room with temperature between 50C and 120C, it enters the defrost mode about once every 30 minutes. When the unit is running in a room with temperature between 120C and 200C, it enters the defrost mode about once every 45 minutes. Normal operation will resume after defrost mode. Humidistat control and fan/ compressor operation When the selected humidity is 2% lower than the user selected humidistat setting; the dehumidifier's compressor will be shut off automatically but the fan will still move to ensure air is not stale in the room. The unit will use only a minimal amount of energy in fan mode. When the humidity is equal or higher than user selected humidity the compressor will restart once the 3 minutes delay compressor protection expires. Auto-Restart (on some models) If the unit stops off unexpectedly due to the power cut, it will restart with the previous function selected automatically when the power resumes. Power After the unit has stopped, it is not recommended to resume operation for at least 10 minutes. This is to protect the compressor. 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 on castors The dehumidifier is built to be compact and lightweight. The castors on the bottom of the unit make it easy to move from room to room. Your CD12LE/CD20LE dehumidifier is an advanced micro-CPU controlled device able of self- diagnostics. The LCD display may also show the error and protections codes. 9 ****** Page 7 ****** Positioning the dehumidifier A badly positioned dehumidifier will have little effect. 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 / 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. 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, In positioning the dehumidifier please 20cm 20cm 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. 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. • Note: Only empty the water tank when 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 Full indicator light will flash. Slowly pull out the tank. Grip tank by its handle securely, and carefully pull 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. 10 NOTES: When you remove the bucket, 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 draining 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 fall to dispose water hence the drain should be lower than the unit water outlet. 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. NOTE: When the continuous drain feature is not being used,remove the drain hose from the outlet. The permanent drain can be used in conjunction with water pump(e.g. when draining a cellar) to lift the water upwards. 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 E5- Bff 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 11 ****** Page 8 ****** 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 frame and pull out the filters from the frame. Hoover gently the optional carbon once every 2-3 weeks approximately. 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 filter frame and reassemble the unit. NOTE: While the carbon filter is optional never run the unit without the mesh filter frame being assembled back. 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. 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 1500. 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 500. 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 3200. 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. 12 Troubleshooting: Issue Hot or cold air being produced Unit does not operate Front louvres do not open Dehumidifier does not extract water Airflow seems weak Unit is noisy during operation E3 or E4 El or E2 E5 or E6 Defrost light on and unit stops regularly Tank full red light Cause Normal Operation Is the plug properly inserted in the socket? Does the tank full indicator is red? Louvre motor is blocked Is the unit set to a humidity level lower than the one in the room? Is the temperature too low for water extraction to be efficient? Is any intake grill or discharge blocked? Is the unit too close to walls. Is filter dirty or clogged? Is the unit on uneven surface? Is filter clogged? Humidity sensor error Temperature sensor error Abnormal Coil sensor temperature or current Unit is defrosting Water tank full notification Solution When the unit is in dehumidifying mode it absorbs humid air from room and freezes it to reduce the humidity.
