it will not move.
Otherwise, the unit may suddenly move and cause water leakage and accidents.
 When cleaning, lay a soft cloth on the fl oor and place the unit and detached parts

 Refi ll the water tank with fresh water daily, and clean on a regular basis as instruct-
ed on "Cleaning".
Continued use without regular cleaning may cause propagation of molds and bacteria due to
dirt and water scale, which can result in unpleasant odors. In rare cases, it may cause health
risk to users who have hypersensitive immune system. In this case, please seek medical advice.
 Only use fresh tap water (drinking water) for the water tank
Otherwise, it may cause deformation and deterioration of parts, unit failure or unpleasant odors
due to propagation of molds and bacteria. Do not use hot water (over 40°C), purified water, al-
kali ion water, mineral water, well water or other similar types of water. Also, refrain from putting
organic solvents, chemicals, perfumes, air fresheners or other similar items in the water tank
 When fi lling the tank with water, do not drop or subject the tank to impact
Otherwise, it may cause the water from the tank to leak and wet the floor. It may damage the
float switch in the tank, which results in the water supply indicator not lighting up.
 Do not remove or subject the water tank's fl oat switch to excessive force.
The indicator will not light up even if the water tank is empty.
 Do not put water directly in the water tray
Doing so may cause water to overflow.
 Do not use the unit in case of water leakage
