  • Water can be automatically emptied into a floor drain by attaching the unit with a water hose (Id Ø 5/16”, not included) with a female threaded end (ID: M = 1”, not included).
  • Remove the plastic cover from the back drain outlet of the unit and set aside, then insert the drain hose through the drain outlet of the unit and lead the drain hose to the floor drain or a suitable drainage facility. (See Fig. 7 and Fig. 8)
  • When you remove the plastic cover, if there is some water in the back drain outlet of the unit you must dry it. Make sure the hose is secure so there are no leaks and the end of the hose is level or down to let the water flow.
  • Direct the hose toward the drain, making sure that there are no kinks that will stop the water flowing.

When the continuous draining feature is not being used, remove the drain hose from the outlet, and dry the water in the continuous drain hose outlet.
Do not use this operation when the outdoor temperature is equal to or less than 32°F (0°C), otherwise water may freeze causing blockages and the unit may cease to function properly.

Make sure to empty the bucket at least once a week when using the pump draining feature. When the pump draining feature is not being used, remove the pump drain hose from the outlet.


Positioning the Unit

A dehumidifier 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. (See Fig. 9)

  • Place the dehumidifier on a smooth, level floor strong enough to support the unit with a full bucket of water.
  • Allow at least 8 inches of air space on all sides of the unit for air circulation (at least 16 inches for air outlet).
  • This unit is designed to operate with a working environment between 5°C (41°F) and 32°C (90°F), and between 30%(RH) and 80%(RH). The coils can become covered with frost at at lower temperatures, which may reduce performance.
  • Place the unit away from any clothes dryer, heater or radiator.
  • Close all doors, windows and other outside openings to the room.


Turn the dehumidifier off and disconnect the plug from the wall before cleaning.

Doing so may cause an electrical shock, cause the insulation to deteriorate, or cause the unit to rust. The air intake and outlet may get dirty during operation, use a vacuum cleaner or brush to clean.
  2. Clean the bucketEvery few weeks, clean the bucket thoroughly to prevent growth of mold, mildew and bacteria. Partially fill the bucket with clean water and mild detergent. Swish it around in the bucket, empty and rinse.
    Do not use a dishwasher to clean the bucket.
  3. Clean the air filter To remove the filter, pull filter outwards (See Fig. 10).• Wash the filter with clean water then dry.• Re-install the filter, replace bucket.
    DO NOT operate the dehumidifier without a filter to avoid loss of performance and damage to the unit.
  4. When not using the unit for long time periods Before storing the unit, let it rest for one full day so that the system can dry out naturally. Clean the unit, water bucket and air filter. Wrap the cord with the power cord buckle. Cover the unit with a plastic bag. Store the unit upright in a dry, well-ventilated place.
