Adjust the amount of humidity depending
on your needs. The humidifier will turn on
and off as required to maintain level of
humidity selected. A medium setting (half
way between MIN and MAX) is recom-
mended, but there are times when a low or
high amount of humidity may be preferred.

ty to be evaporated into the air continuous-

Your Kenmore
humidifier has a three
speed rotary fan control. The higher the air
flow speed, the more water is evaporated
and released into the air. Low speed (1) is
the quietest and is provided for conditions
that may not require as high an evapora-
tion rate.
Fill Light
When the unit has a small amount of water
left in it, the fill light will come on and the
unit will automatically shut off.

Dryout
At the end of the humidification season or
if you do not plan to run the humidifier for
one week or more, you can override the
automatic shutoff function
to completely
dry the humidifier cabinet out.
To do this, simply slide the float retainer
located at the back of the humidifier cabi-
net to the top position of the slot it is locat-
ed in. This will hold the float in an upward
position and the fans will run until you turn
the power off.
NOTE: Be sure to position float retainer to
the normal operating mode (lowest posi-
tion in slot) for humidifier operation.
Below is a diagram of the slot the float
retainer is located in at the back of the cab-
inet.
