Electrical Information
For your safety and protection, this dehumidifier is equipped with a three-prong grounding
plug on the power cord. Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the round ground
prong from the plug.
Your dehumidifier must be plugged directly into a properly grounded and polarized
three-prong receptacle. lf the wall receptacle you intend to use will not accept a
three-prong plug, or if you are not sure the outlet is adequately grounded or protected
by a time delay fuse or circuit breaker, have a qualified electrician install the proper outlet
according to the National Electrical Code and applicable local codes and ordinances. Do not
use an extension cord or an adapter plug.
Never unplug the dehumidifier by pulling on the power cord. Always grip the plug firmly
and pull straight out from the receptacle.
Do not pinch, bend, or knot the power cord.
Selecting a Location
1. Dehumidifier must be operated in an enclosed area to be most effective. Close all doors,
windows, and other outside openings to the room. The effectiveness of the dehumidifier
depends on the rate at which new moisture-laden air enters the room.
2. Place dehumidifier in a location that does not restrict airflow through the front of the unit or
out of the louvers on the left side of cabinet.
3. A dehumidifier operating in a basement will have little or no effect in drying an adjacent
enclosed storage area, such as a closet, unless there is adequate circulation of air in and out
of the area. lt may be necessary to install a second dehumidifier in the enclosed area for
satisfactory drying.
4. The dehumidifier must be installed on a level floor that will support it with a full bucket of

room as dry, warm air. Moisture removed from air is collected in a bucket on the front of the
The unit is designed to operate between 5 °C (41 °F), and 35 °C (96 °F).
The "Compressor" circuit has an automatic 3 minute time delayed start if the unit is turned off
