Your dehumidifier will begin to protect your home from the harmful effects of  
excessive moisture as soon as it is turned on.  
Excess moisture travels throughout your home, in the same way cooking smells  
spread to every room in the house. For this reason, the dehumidifier should be  
positioned in a central and clear location so that it can draw the moist air towards it  
from all over the home. A warm hallway or landing is an excellent position for your  
dehumidifier. If possible, leave interior doors ajar to allow air circulation.  
Alternatively, if you have a serious problem in one area you can begin by positioning  
the dehumidifier there and later moving it to a more central point.  
For the most effective use, run your dehumidifier with external doors and windows  
kept closed when the dehumidifier is operating. Please note the unit should not be  
placed directly against a radiator or other heat source.  
When positioning your dehumidifier, ensure that it is placed securely on a level  
surface clear of any obstacle that may limit the air movement.  
Your dehumidifier is fitted with 4 wheels for easy movement. Before you move the  
unit, switch it off and empty the water tank.  
Keep a minimal 0.2 m safety distance between the appliance and an electrical heater  
or any inflammable surface.

Always unplug the unit from the mains before carrying out any maintenance or  
cleaning the unit.  
Cleaning the body  
Use only a soft cloth to wipe the unit clean.  
Do not use volatile chemicals, petrol, detergents, chemically treated cloths or other  
harmful cleansing solutions. These could all possibly damage the cabinet.  
Cleaning the washable air filter  
This dehumidifier is equipped with a washable filter. This will  
capture most airborne pollutants like dust, smoke, animal  
dander, mould spores and pollen to create a less irritating  
living environment.  
It is advisable to check the filter on a regular basis (at least  
monthly and after storage) and clean as necessary:  
• Extract the filter holder  
• Use a vacuum cleaner or tap the filter lightly.  
If the filter is particularly dirty, use lukewarm water with a small amount of medium  
strength detergent and rinse thoroughly under the cold water tap.  
Make sure the filter is completely dry before replacing.  
Do not expose the filter to sunlight or other sources of direct heat as this may cause  
the filter and frame to warp.  
When the unit is not being used for long period of time and you want to store it,  
note the following steps:  
1. Empty any water left in the water tank.  
2. Fold up the power supply cord and put it in the water tank.  
3. Clean the filters.  
4. Store in a cool and dry place.

When the water tank is full, the unit will switch off  
automatically and beep 15 times, the LED [2] will light up.  
- hold the top and bottom center of the tank with both hands  
and pull it out gently.  
- after having emptied the tank, gently push the tank back  
into its place. The LED light will go off.  
1. Do not remove the float from the water tank. The tank full sensor will no longer  
be able to detect the water level correctly without the float and water may leak  
from the water tank.  
2. If the tank is dirty, wash it with cold or lukewarm water. Do not use detergent,  
scouring pads, chemically treated dust cloths, gasoline, benzene, thinner, or  
other solvents, as these can scratch and damage the tank and cause water  
3. When replacing the drainage tank, press the tank firmly into place with both  
hands. If the tank is not positioned properly, the “TANK FULL” sensor will be  
activated, and the dehumidifier will not operate.
