It is not recommended for long normal operation in a domestic or office environment.· To allow more moisture in the air, press the up button and set to a higher desired humidity (e.g. 6070%).· We recommend setting the humidity to 50-55%. This is great for domestic operation and dry storage· Setting the humidity to 60% is great for personal comfort and applications where 50% RH is considered too dry· Setting the humidity to 70% is ideal for unoccupied properties or where an economical run is needed without the need to reduce the humidity further.
OTHER FEATURES AND INDICATORSTANK FULL LIGHT When the water tank is full, removed or incorrectly inserted the unit will stop dehumidifying, the tank full light will illuminate. Empty the tank and reinsert it correctly to resume operation. AUTO DEFROST When frost builds up on the evaporator coils, the compressor will cycle off, and the unit will go in to defrost mode. Following completion of the defrost mode, the unit will return to the previously operating settings.· When the unit is running in a room with a temperature between 5oC and 12oC, it will enter defrost mode roughly every 30 minutes.· When the unit is running in a room with a temperature between 12C and 20C, it will enter the defrost mode roughly every 45 minutes.HUMIDISTAT CONTROL AND FAN/COMPRESSOR OPERATION · When the humidity of the room is 2% lower than the desired humidity, the compressor will turn off automatically but the fan will continue to operate to ensure that the air within the room is not stale. The unit will use only a minimal amount of energy in fan mode. · When the humidity of the room is equal to or higher than the desired humidity, the compressor will restart after a 3 minutes delay to protect the compressor.AUTO-RESTART (on some models) If the unit stops unexpectedly due to the power cut, it will restart with the previous function selected automatically when the power resumes, and the 3-minute compressor protection has elapsed. POWER After the unit has stopped, to protect the compressor it is not recommended to resume operation for at least 10 minutes. Operation can resume after this period lapses. When the unit is restarted there is a 3 minute delay before the compressor will start.9
POSITIONING THE DEHUMIDIFIERA badly positioned dehumidifier will have little effect. When positioning the dehumidifier, please ensure circulation of air is not restricted around the unit. Allow at least 20 cm space around the unit. This dehumidifier is designed only for indoor residential or office applications and any industrial use will invalidate the warranty. Use in an enclosed area for maximum efficiency. All doors and windows should be closed to create an effective operating environment. Do not use outdoors. Your electriQ dehumidifier will begin to protect your space from the harmful effects of excessive moisture as soon as it is turned on. Excess moisture is dispersed throughout your home. For this reason, the dehumidifier should be positioned in a central and clear location so that it can draw this 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 moving it to a more central location at a later date. For the most effective use, run your dehumidifier with external doors, and windows kept closed. Please note the unit should not be placed directly against a radiator or other heat source. When positioning your electriQ dehumidifier, ensure that it is placed clear of any obstacle that may limit the air movement. Place the dehumidifier on a flat dry surface. Note: Do not move the unit with water in the tank as it may tip over and spill water.10
WATER DRAINAGEWhen the water tank is full, the unit will stop automatically. When this happens, the TANK FULL light will show on the control panel. NOTE: Only empty the water tank when it is full or before moving or storing the unit. There are two ways to dispense collected water. 1. USE THE TANK When the tank is full, the unit will automatically stop running, and the Tank Full indicator will flash. Slowly pull out the tank. Grip the tank by its handle securely, and carefully pull it out. Empty the water tank and reinsert it into the dehumidifier. The tank must be in place and securely seated for the dehumidifier to operate again. The dehumidifier will re-start when the tank is restored in its correct position. NOTES: When you remove the water tank, do not touch sensors or any parts which are situated behind the tank. Doing so may damage the product. Be sure to push the tank gently all the way into the unit. Banging the bucket against anything or failing to push it in securely into place may cause the unit not to operate. Do not remove any parts from the water tank or tank enclosure. The tank full sensor will no longer be able to detect the water level correctly and water may leak from the water tank. 2. CONTINUOUS DRAINAGE Water can be automatically plumbed in or drained into a sink, a larger recipient or through the wall into an outside drain by attaching a pipe to the unit (10 mm internal diameter) (not included). Remove the pipe cutout on the top of the tank and Insert the pipe into the drain outlet above the tank.Make sure the connection between pipe and the drain outlet is tight and does not leak. Then direct the pipe to a suitable drainage point. This unit uses gravity to dispose of water hence the drain should be lower than the water outlet on the unit. Put the tank back into the unit. Be sure to run the water pipe downward and let the water to flow out smoothly. Do not kink or bend the pipe. The permanent drain can be used in conjunction with a water pump (e.g. when draining from a cellar) to lift the water upwards.11
