Adjust
the amount
of humidity
depending
on
your needs.
The humidifier
will turn on and
off as required
to maintain
level of humidity

ed, but there
are times
when
low or high
amount
of humidity
may be preferred.
For
constant
operation
of
humidifier,
rotate
humidity
knob
all the way
clockwise.
This
allows
for the maximum

starts to form
on windows
or
walls.

rate.
VIS-FILL
Water
Bottle Gauges
and
Fill Lights
This
humidifier
is equipped
with
indepen-
dent
(left
and
right)
water
level
bottle
gauges.
When the unit is energized
the cen-
ter area of the control
panel containing
the
gauges
and fill indicators
will illuminate
red
to depict the operation
mode.
The right bot-
tle as viewed
from the front of the humidifier
will
always
empty
first.
As it empties
the
number
of red bars will decrease.
When
it is
totally
empty
the Fill Indicator
immediately
beside
the bars will illuminate.
NOTE:
The
humidifier
will not shut off at this stage.
Once the right bottle empties,
the humidifier
will begin to use the water from the left bottle
until
it is depleted.
At
this
time
the
Fill
Indicator
beside
it will illuminate.
There
will
still be a slight delay in the unit shutting
off
while it depletes
the water
in the bottom
of
the cabinet.
At this time
or anytime
during
normal
operation
you may fill the water bot-
tles to continue
operation.
Note:
A small
amount
of water remains
in cabinet
after both
Fill Indicators
turn on and the unit shuts off.

Manual 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 auto-
matic shutoff
function
to completely
dry the
humidifier
cabinet
out.
To do this, simply slide the float retainer locat-
ed at the back of the humidifier
cabinet
to the
top position
of the slot it is located
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
position
in slot) for humidifier
operation.
Below is a diagram
of the slot the float retain-
er is located
in at the back of the cabinet.
