DRY (Dehumidifier) Operating Instructions
NOTE: The exhaust hoses do not have to be
installed during dehumidifier mode.
Both internal and external water tanks must
be installed during dehumidifer mode.
1) Press the I/O (on/off) key pad to switch on
2) Press the MODE key until the word DRY
(Dehumidifying) appears in the display window.
Each depression of the MODE key will advance
to a different mode setting (Cool-Dry-Fan).
3) Press the appropriate
ADJ) key to select a (relative humidity) operating
setting between 35% ~ 90% RH (adjustable in
increments of 5%)
For continuous (non-stop) dehumidifer operation
(TEMP / TIMER ADJ) key pad until
the symbol "- - " appears in the display window.
NOTE: The compressor will not cycle off during
The set relative humidity level will flash in the display
window for approximately 5 seconds then
automatically revert back to display actual room
ambient relative humidity conditions. NOTE: The set
operating RH level must be programed within the 5
second (flashing) condition. To view the "set" relative
humidity program any time, press either of the
TEMP/TIMER ADJ buttons.
NOTE: There is no fan speed adjustment during
dehumidifying mode. (the fan speed is factory
set for "low")
The blue (RUN) indicator light illuminates indicating
dehumidifying mode is operational (there may be a
slight delay of 10-30 seconds before the cycle
begins, this is normal).
(TEMP / TIMER
IMPORTANT: The relative humidity setting selected
should always be set a few degrees lower than the
room ambient relative humidity conditions, to ensure
normal dehumidifying operation. NOTE: it is not
recommended to operate your Dehumidifier,
below temperatures of 15.5°C (60°F), this could
result in icing-up conditions of the evaporator coils,
and minimize efficiency.
4) Condensed water will be accumulated in the
external / internal water tanks. When the
external tank is full, water will backflow into the
internal tank. When the internal tank is full, the
unit will alarm (beep) for 20 deconds and the
Water Full indicator light will illuminate. At this
time dehumidification will stop immediately.
However, the fan motor will continue to operate
(this is normal). Carefully remove both water
tanks from the cabinet, dispose of the water.
Replace the water tanks back to their original
positions and the Dehumidifying process will
automatically resume. It may take 3-5 minutes
for the compressor to re-start. This is normal.
5) This unit also has provisions for a continuous
"drain" option (for basement applications having
a floor drain). The required drain hose extension
is not included with this unit. It can be purchased
through any local Hardware Store. Drain Hose
Specifications: Standard garden hose.
For continuous direct drain operation. Remove
(unscrew) the drain cap at the back of the cabinet
located directly above the external tank quick
connect. Attach suitable length (of garden hose)
to the direct drain fitting. (do not over tighten)
Position the open end of the drain hose as close
as possible to the floor drain. Check the hose
connection for leaks.
NOTE: Direct drain operation is intended for
floor drain applications only. Direct drain
operation should not be used in stem pipe
and/or sink applications.
