A clogged filter will result in reduced dehumidification efficiency and higher power
consumption. It can also cause odor.
If you operate the unit without the filter, dust will accumulate in the unit, which may result in malfunction.
Cleaning the filter
Main body
Wipe off any dirt from the unit using a piece of soft cloth soaked in warm water (40¡C max.) or with detergent.
If detergent is used, make sure to wipe off the detergent with a damp cloth.
The air intake and outlet become dirty easily, so make sure to clean them well.
If water is allowed to splash on the unit, electrical insulation may be affected and corrosion of the unit may eventually result.
Use a neutral detergent (e.g. for dish washing) for cleaning.
Do not use the following types of cleaning agents as they will damage plastic parts.
Thinners, benzine, alcohol, petrol, powder soap, powder polish, alkaline washing agents, hot water, acid or scrubbing brushes.
Do not scrub or expose the unit to chemically treated cloths for any prolonged period of time as this may damage the surface of the unit.
If the unit is not used for a long time
Empty the water tank completely.
Remove the tank lid, tank handle and tank float, and wipe off any
excess water in the tank.
Clean the filter.
Wind the power supply cord around the clamp on the rear panel.
Dry the unit thoroughly and cover with a sheet for dust protection. Store the unit in a well ventilated
place that is not exposed to direct sunlight. If the unit is left uncovered without any protection, dust
will accumulate so that the air emitted by the unit will be dusty next time the dehumidifier is used.
