BEFORE USE Indoor temperature and relative humidity affect dehumidification...

- Dehumidification is decreased if the temperature or relative humidity is low...

- The product does not operate unless the desired humidity level is lower than the current

humidity level...

This product operates at temperatures from 41 F - 90 F (5 C - 32 C)...

- At temperatures of 32 F (0 C) or less, water freezes inside the product...

- At temperatures over 90 F (32 C), the internal temperature of the product trips a protective

device which deactivates the product to avoid product damage...

When the dehumidifier is operating, the indoor temperature will rise...

- The dehumidifier does not have a cooling/heating function...

- Heat is generated during operation, so the room temperature may be increased by about 5 F

(3 C) depending on the usage conditions (indoor temperature, size of the room)...

The compressor has a 3-minute delay before restarting...

- If the product is stopped and immediately restarted, to protect the compressor there is a 3-

minute delay until the compressor restarts...

The product cannot be operated continuously for more than 23 hours...

After 23 hours of continuous operation, the compressor automatically shuts off for one hour to

prevent product damage... The compressor will restart after one hour... This Safety Standby function

is normal...

Install the product at least 11 13/ 16" (30 cm) from walls or other obstacles...

The product needs clearance for air intake and exhaust purposes...

There may be water in the drain water bucket before first use...

Water may remain in the drain water bucket from the product's outgoing inspection to check

operation... This is normal...

Problem Possible Cause Solutions

Water is draining

out of the hole at

the side of the

appliance when the

pump hose is

connected...

- The drainage adapter was not

removed when the pump hose was

connected...

- The drainage adapter is only for

use with a garden hose for

continuous draining... If using the

pump, remove the drainage

adapter to allow the water to drain

into the water bucket rather than

out the drainage adapter...

There is water left

in the water bucket

even though the

pump is enabled...

- The pump does not run

continuously... The pump is

activated only when the water

bucket is full...

- The pump does not completely

empty the water bucket...

- This is normal... The pump will

activate once the water bucket is

full... Once the pump stops, there

may be water left in the water

bucket... To avoid odor, clean the

water bucket at least once a week...

The pump starts

running after 3

minutes when the

water bucket is

removed...

- The pump is enabled... - Disable the pump by pressing the

Pump button before removing the

water bucket for cleaning...
