Operating Humidifier
Controls
The operating
controls
of your Kenmore
Quiet Comfort Whole House humidifier are
located on the top center of the humidifier.
The controls are found under the smoked
control cover, located between the air cir-
culating fans.
Lift the control cover by placing your finger
in the round cutout and lifting. The cover
will stay open. Now you can clearly see the
control area. Familiarize yourself with the
controls and reference the diagram of the
control area for the correct naming used in
this manual.
To Operate the Controls
Humidity
Control:
Adjust the amount of humidity depending on
your needs. The humidifier will turn on and
off as required to maintain level of humidity
selected. A medium setting is recommend-
ed, but there are times when a low or high
amount of humidity may be preferred. For
constant operation of humidifier, turning the
control all the way clockwise allows for the
maximum amount of humidity to be evapo-
rated into the air continuously.
IMPORTANT: Water damage may result
if condensation
starts to form on win-
dows or walls. Humidity Control setting
should be lowered until condensation
no longer forms.
Speed
Control
Your Kenmore humi_r
has a three
speed rotary fan control. The higher the
air flow speed, the more water is evapo-
rated and released into the air. Low speed
( • ) is the quietest and is provided for
conditions that may not require as high an
evaporation rate.
Water
Level Indicator
This humidifier is equipped with a water level
gauge located in the center of the control panel.
When the cabinet is full of water the large win-
dow opposite the scale will show green. As
water is depleted the amount of green will
decrease to correspond with the scale.
Fill Indicator
When the unit has a small amount of water
left in it, the small window next to Fill on the
control panel will appear orange and the
unit will automatically
shut off.
NOTE:
The cabinet
may have a small
amount of water in it once unit shuts off.
