Step 1
To make cleaning
easier, the humidifier
cabinet should be empty and completely
dried out. To accomplish this, use the fol-
lowing method:
a. On the back side of the humidifier cab-
inet, find the float retainer. In normal
operating
mode, the retainer will be
positioned in the bottom of the slot in
the cabinet. Push the retainer up to the
top slot position in the cabinet until it
locks in place. (See "Manual Dryout"
section on page 7.)
b. Allow the humidifier to run until there is
no water left in the cabinet
c. Unplug humidifier.

p_ugged, fan coutd start after housing
is removed.

To Remove
Parts
a. Open the pivoting lid and remove water
bottles and set aside. Grasp the fan
assembly front center and rear center.
Lift off and set aside on a clean flat sur-
face.
The filter
housings
are
now
accessible.
b. Before removing the internal parts of
the humidifier cabinet, we recommend
moving the humidifier to an area where
floor coverings
are not susceptible
to
water
damage,
i.e., kitchen
or bath
area. Lift the filter housing assemblies
out of the cabinet and set to the side.
c. Remove the water level float from the
humidifier cabinet by pinching the float
retainer to release it from the cabinet.
The cabinet should
be empty before
cleaning.
The cabinet consists of the
lower areas of the humidifier where the
filters are during normal operation time.
d. Empty cabinet of any remaining water.
e. Proceed to "Bi=Weekly Maintenance"
or "End of Season Maintenance/'
f.
Remove old filters and dispose of prop-
erly as described on page 9 and 10.
Step 3
Install new filters
(purchase
the correct
evaporative
wicking filter pads 42-14911
for your humidifier) into the location where
the old filters were positioned.
Install the
filter housings with the new filters into the
correct location. Reinstall the water level
float. NOTE: Float retainer should be posi-
tioned in normal operating
mode. Assure
that it is positioned in the bottom of the stot
in the back of the cabinet. (See page 7 for
diagram of slot.) Position the fan assembly
on top of the cabinet and return the humid-
ifier to the desired location for use.
Refill humidifier bottles with fresh cool water
and return them to the cabinet. Plug the unit
into a 120 volt A.C. power outlet and set the
controls
per the "Operating
Humidifier
Controls" section of this manual.
