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
bottle
of the whole
house
humidifier
will hold 2-1/2 gallons
of water.
Step

lowing

positioned.

ter housing.
