Selecting a location
1. Dehumidifi er 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
dehumidifi er depends on the rate at which
new moisture-laden air enters the room.
2. Place dehumidifi er in a location that does not
restrict airfl ow through the front of the unit or
out of the louvres on the left side of cabinet.
3. A dehumidifi er 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 dehumidifi er in the enclosed
area for satisfactory drying.
4. The dehumidifi er must be installed on a level
fl oor that will support it with a full bucket of
5. There should be a minimum of 12 inches
clearance around the dehumidifi er.

How it works

When the unit is started, the fan begins to pull
moisture-laden air across the dehumidifying
coils. The coils condense or draw moisture
from the air, and air fl ows through the side
louvres into the room as dry, warm air. Moisture
removed from air is collected in a bucket on the
front of the dehumidifi er.
The unit is designed to operate between
5°C (41°F) and 35°C (96°F). The unit will not
work properly if the temperature is out of this
temperature range, or the performance of the
unit will fall greatly.
The "Compressor" circuit has an automatic 3
minute time delayed start if the unit is turned off
and on quickly.
This prevents overheating of the compressor
and possible circuit breaker tripping. Make sure
the tank is fi tted correctly otherwise unit will not
turn on.
