Using the dehumidifier.
When first using the dehumidifier, operate the unit continuously 3 to 4 days.
How the Dehumidifier Operates
Moist, humid air is drawn over a cold refrigerated
dehumidifying coil. Moisture in the air condenses
on this coil and drains into a bucket (or through a
hose into a drain).
Dry, clean air is drawn over the condenser where it is
actually heated several degrees and discharged out
the front grille into the room.
It is normal for the surrounding air to become slightly
warmer as the dehumidifier operates.
This warming effect further reduces the relative
humidity of the surrounding air.
Choosing a Location
The dehumidifier must be operated in an enclosed
area to be most effective.
Close all doors, windows and other outside openings
to the room.
Place the dehumidifier in a location that does
not restrict air flow into the rear coil or out the
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.
Removing Collected Water
There are 3 ways to remove collected water:
Use the bucket. Turn the control to OFF before
removing the bucket.
Use a hose. Water can be automatically
emptied into a floor drain by attaching a
water hose to the drain connection. Remove
the bucket to attach the hose.
Humid air in
Use a floor drain. The unit can also be placed
over a floor drain. Make a hole with drill at the
end of nozzle located on the lower left side of
