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 cabinet of the whole house humidifier
will hold 4-3/4 gallons.
Step 1
To make cleaning
easier, the humidifier
cabinet should be empty and completely
dried out. To accomplish this, use the fo!-
lowing method:
a. On the back side of the humidifier cab-
inet, find the link arm assembly retain-
er.
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 into place. (See
"Manual Dryout" section on page 7.)
b. Allow the humidifier tp 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.

Step 2
To Remove
Parts
a. Remove the fan assembly by opening
the pivoting lid. Grasp the fan assem-
bly front center and rear center. Lift off
and set aside on a clean flat surface.
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.
c. Deflect the two vertical tabs on top of
the front filter housing to release the
top filter housing. Lift top filter housing
straight up and out of cabinet. Repeat
for other top filter housing.
d. Remove old filters and dispose of properly.
e. Remove the water level float assembly
from the humidifier cabinet by pinching
the link assembly retainer to disengage
it from the rear of the cabinet. See dia-
gram on page 9.
f.
Empty cabinet of any remaining water.
g. Proceed to "Bi-Weekly
Maintenance"
or "End of Season Maintenance"
and
then continue as described below.
Step 3
Install
new filters
(Kenmore
42-14912
Replacement
Filters)
into the location
where
the old filters
were
positioned.
Reinstall the water
level float assembly
into the cabinet.
NOTE: Link arm assembly
retainer should
be positioned
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.) Reposition top
filter housings on top of filters and snap
onto front filter housings.
Position the fan
assembly on top of the cabinet and return
the humidifier to the desired location for
use. Refill humidifier
cabinet with fresh
cool water. Plug the unit into a 120 volt
A.C. power outlet and set the controls per
the "Operating
Humidifier

tion of this manual.
