Cleaning of Humidifier Tank

specially
recom-
mended
for humidifiers.
Never
use
flammable,
combustible
or poisonous
material to clean your
humidifier. To avoid scalds and damage to humidi-
fier, never put hot water in humidifier.
CAUTION: Local water purity varies from area to
area and under certain conditions water impurities
and airborne bacteria may promote the growth of
microorganisms
in the reservoir of the humidifier.
To retard bacteria
growth that may cause odors
and be harmful
to your health,
use only Sears
recommended
filters. We also recommend
using
32-149000
approved
bacteriostat.
Clean
your

regularly.
Care and Maintenance
To make cleaning easier, the tank should be completely
dried out. Proceed as follows.
a. Loop switch actuato_ Fi_ng a round plastic hook located
directly above the switch actuator.(Fig. 12)
b. Set humidity control to Constant
On, air flow to High.
Run till tank is dry.
_
NOTE: With the switch actuator ring in place unit will con-
tinue to run until the ring is released. Depending
upon
humidity levels, once the tank is empty the average dry
out time is approximately 2 hours.
1. When unit is dry, release switch actuator ring and shut
the unit off.
2. Unplug humidifier, and proceed to clean.
WARNING: If humidifier
is not unplugged,
fan could
start after motor support is removed.
3. Raise lid to rest on hinges.
4. Lift out the motor support section and wipe off any
mineral deposits with a clean cloth. (Fig. 13)
CAUTION: The switch actuator
is a fragile
part. Set
the motor
support
section
down
carefully to be
sure the switch
actuator

aged.
5. Before removing the filters, we recommend
moving
the humidifier to an area where floor coverings are not
susceptible
to water damage, i.e. kitchen or bath
areas.
6. Slide up the filter holders and remove (either discard
or store for further use) the filters located inside by
gently pushing out from either side. Wash off mineral
deposits on filter holder and wipe with a clean cloth.
7. Remove the floats from the bottom of the humidifier
cabinet. The cabinet should be empty and the water
reservoir is ready for cleaning. (The water reservoir is
the lower areas of the humidifier
cabinet that the
floats and filter holders are located during the normal
operation time.)
8. Proceed to "Bi-Weekly Maintenance" or "End of Sea-
son Maintenance.
