• Install the dehumidifier
on a level floor strong
enough to support the unit with a full bucket
of water.
• For best performance,
allow at least 12-18
inches of air space on all sides of the unit for
good air circulation.
• Keep all outside doors, windows, and other
openings
closed when operating the
dehumidifier.
Humid outdoor air will add to the
unit's work load.
• Install your dehumidifier
in an area where the
temperature
will not fall below 65°F (18°C). At
temperatures
below this, the coils can
become covered with frost.
NOTE"
If frost occurs, the unit will cycle on
and off. This is normal. Unplug the unit (or turn
the unit off) until the frost melts and the room
temperature
rises.
DEFROST
CONTROL
When the defrost control senses frost build-up
on the evaporator
coil, it will automatically
shut
off the compressor.
The fan will continue to run
to draw air across the coil and melt the frost.
When the coil is defrosted, the compressor will
automatically
restart and dehumidifying
resume.
