PDF Content Summary: INSTRUCTIONS FOR: DEHUMIDIFIER 20 LITRE MODEL No: SDH20.V3 Thank you for purchasing a Sealey product. Manufactured to a high standard this product will, if used according to these instructions and properly maintained, give you years of trouble free performance. 1. SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS 1.1. ELECTRICAL SAFETY ❐ WARNING! It is the responsibility of the owner and the operator to read, understand and comply with the following: You must check all electrical products, before use, to ensure that they are safe. You must inspect power cables, plugs, sockets and any other connectors for wear or damage. You must ensure that the risk of electric shock is minimised by the installation of appropriate safety devices. A Residual Current Circuit Breaker (RCCB) should be incorporated in the main distribution board. We also recommend that a Residual Current Device (RCD) is used. It is particularly important to use an RCD with portable products that are plugged into a supply which is not protected by an RCCB. If in any doubt consult a qualified electrician. You may obtain a Residual Current Device by contacting your Sealey dealer. You must also read and understand the following instructions concerning electrical safety. 1.1.1. The Electricity at Work Act 1989 requires that all portable electrical appliances, if used on business premises, are tested by a qualified electrician, using a Portable Appliance Tester (PAT), at least once a year. 1.1.2. The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 makes owners of electrical appliances responsible for the safe condition of those appliances and the safety of the appliance operators. If in any doubt about electrical safety, contact a qualified electrician. 1.1.3. Ensure that the insulation on all cables and on the appliance is safe before connecting it to the power supply. See 1.1.1. and 1.1.2. and use a Portable Appliance Tester. 1.1.4. Ensure that cables are always protected against short circuit and overload. 1.1.5. Regularly inspect power supply cables and plugs for wear or damage and check all connections to ensure that none is loose. 1.1.6. Important: Ensure that the voltage marked on the appliance matches the power supply to be used and that the plug is fitted with the correct fuse - see fuse rating at right. 1.1.7. DO NOT pull or carry the appliance by the power cable. 1.1.8. DO NOT pull the plug from the socket by the cable. 1.1.9. DO NOT use worn or damaged cables, plugs or connectors. Immediately have any faulty item repaired or replaced by a qualified electrician. When a BS 1363/A UK 3 pin plug is damaged, cut the cable just above the plug and dispose of the plug safely. Fit a new plug according to the following instructions (UK only). a) Connect the GREEN/YELLOW earth wire to the earth terminal ‘E’. b) Connect the BROWN live wire to the live terminal ‘L’. c) Connect the BLUE neutral wire to the neutral terminal ‘N’. d) After wiring, check that there are no bare wires, that all wires have been correctly connected, that the cable outer insulation extends beyond the cable restraint and that the restraint is tight. Double insulated products, which are always marked with this symbol , are fitted with live (brown) and neutral (blue) wires only. To rewire, connect the wires as indicated above - DO NOT connect either wire to the earth terminal. 1.1.10. Products which require more than 13 amps are supplied without a plug. In this case you must contact a qualified electrician to ensure that a suitably rated supply is available. We recommend that you discuss the installation of an industrial round pin plug and socket with your electrician. 1.1.11. If an extension reel is used it should be fully unwound before connection. A reel with an RCD fitted is preferred since any appliance plugged into it will be protected. The cable core section is important and should be at least 1.5mm2, but to be absolutely sure that the capacity of the reel is suitable for this product and for others which may be used in the other output sockets, we recommend the use of 2.5mm2 section cable. 1.2. GENERAL SAFETY ✓ Check that the dehumidifier is in sound condition and good working order. Take immediate action to repair or replace damaged parts. ✓ Use recommended parts only. Unauthorised parts may be dangerous and will invalidate the warranty. ✗ DO NOT stand or place any object less than 10cm from the front of the unit, 20cm from the rear and sides of the unit, and 30cm above the unit. ✗ DO NOT obstruct the air intakes or outlets of the dehumidifier, and do not cover with washed clothes. ✗ DO NOT place any object into the outlets - the unit has a fan running at high speed, contact with this will cause injury. ✗ DO NOT operate the dehumidifier when you are tired or under the influence of alcohol, drugs or intoxicating medication. ✗ DO NOT switch the dehumidifier off by disconnecting it from the mains. ALWAYS switch to the “OFF” position first. ✗ DO NOT remove the float lever from the water collection tank. ✗ DO NOT connect or disconnect the plug from the mains with wet hands. ✓ Always discard the water from the collection tank, DO NOT use it for any other purpose. ✓ Place the dehumidifier on a level and stable surface. ✓ To prevent water from freezing, do not use the dehumidifier at ambient temperatures below 0°C. ✓ Do not use the dehumidifier outside. ✓ When using continuous draining, make sure that the drain hose is positioned correctly. ✓ Ensure that heating appliances are not exposed to the flow of air from the dehumidifier. ✓ Before attempting to move the dehumidifier, empty the contents of the collection tank. Use top carrying handle when moving unit. ✓ Switch off and disconnect it from the mains before attempting any cleaning or other maintenance work. ✓ Ensure that the dehumidifier is correctly turned off when not in use, and stored in a safe, dry area, out of reach of children.
