Cleaning Your Humidifier
WARNING:
To reduce
the
risk
of
injury, fire or damage
to humidifier,
use only
cleaners
specifically
rec-
ommended
for
humidifiers.
Never
use flammable,
combustible
or poi-
sonous
materials
to
clean
your
humidifier.
To reduce
the
risk
of
scalds
and damage
to humidifier,
never put hot water in humidifier.
CAUTION:
Local water purity varies
from area to area and under certain
conditions
water impurities
and air-
borne
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 replacement
filters.
We also
recommend
using
EPA approved bacteriostat,
42-14900
and
humidifier
cleaner
42-14713,
available at your local Sears store.
NOTE:
If it is necessary
to use approved
bacteriostat,
follow
directions
correctly.
The bottles
of the whole
house
humidifier
will hold 2-3/8 gallons
of water
each.
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.
I
ARNING:
If humidifier
is
not
un-
I
plugged,
fan could
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 fiat 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 slot
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.
