WARNING: For your own safety, do
not use humidifier if any parts are
damaged or missing.
Place humidifier on a flat level surface in
an area of your house where humidity is
needed most, or in an area which would
likely result in moist air being circulated
throughout the house, such as near a
cold air return.
Placing the unit level is very important if
the humidifier is located on carpeting.
NOTE: The 14 gallon humidifier contains
water bottles. The weight of the bottles in
the front of the cabinet may cause the
front casters to sink deeper into the
carpet. If this happens, the water level
will be higher towards the front of the
humidifier, and lower towards the back.
The water level float (located at the rear
of the cabinet) may not sense the water
so the flashing "F" will be displayed and
the unit will not energize. If this happens,
the unit will need to be leveled in order
for the humidifier to be energized. To level
the humidifier when located on carpet,
place the included caster pads under the
front two casters of the humidifier only.
NOTE: Due to release of cool, moist air
from humidifier, it is best to direct air
away from home thermostat and hot air
registers. It is best to position humidifier
next to an inside wall. Hot air registers
Operating Tips for Best Performance
1. Position the humidifier at least 2 inches
from any wall and away from any heat
2. Do not restrict airflow from entering or
exiting the humidifier.
3. Use Sears recommended bacteriostat
32-14900 to retard bacteria growth
that may cause odors and may be
harmful to your health.
and cold air from outside walls can affect
the efficiencies of the controls. Unit
should not be placed where warm air
from a hot air register blows directly on
Moist air (humidity) produced will
disperse into the whole house, but area
closest to the unit will have the highest
humidity. If the unit is positioned close to
a window, condensation may form on the
window pane. If this is not appropriate
the unit should be repositioned in another
The humidifier should be positioned with
the back (cord exit side), at least 2
inches away from the wall. Air needs to
enter through the louvers in the rear
panel in order for the humidifier to
operate at peak efficiency.
At Least 2" From Wall
