Air always contains a certain amount of water in the form of vapour. This determines the
level of humidity in an atmosphere.
The capacity of the air to hold water vapour increases with temperature.
This is why in our homes, as soon as the temperature decreases, the vapour contained in the
air condenses, as is evident on the colder surfaces in the room, such as the windows, walls etc.
The purpose of a dehumidifier is to remove the excess moisture from the air, avoiding the
damage caused by condensation.
Experts have established that the optimum environmental conditions for our well being and for
the home are obtained between 40% and 60% relative humidity.
With temperatures near 5°C, you are recommended to heat the room even minimally.
With heating, the condensation formed by the water vapour on windows and other cold sur-
faces evaporates into the air to be collected by the dehumidifier.
Negative ions change the polarity of airborne particles, causing them to magnetically attract
together. As a result, they become too large to remain airborne, and fall out of the air that you
breathe in. Negative ions are present in our environment, wherever we feel the air clean and
fresh, especially around waterfalls, ocean surf, rivers and mountains. It has been proven that
negative ions promote wellness, and, as such, provide additional benefits when there are more
negative ions than positive ones in the air we breathe.
Useful information on humidity
At the end of its working life, the product must not be disposed of as urban waste.
It must be taken to a special local authority differentiated waste collection centre or to a dealer pro-
viding this service.
Disposing of a household appliance separately avoids possible negative consequences for the
environment and health deriving from inappropriate disposal and enables the constituent mate-
rials to be recovered to obtain significant savings in energy and resources.As a reminder of
the need to dispose of household appliances separately, the product is marked with a crossed-
out wheeled dustbin.

Electrical connections
Before plugging the appliance into the mains socket, check that:
• The mains power supply corresponds to the power supply indicated on the rating plate.
• The power socket and electrical circuit are adequate for the appliance.
• The power socket matches the plug. If this is not the case, have the plug replaced by a qualified
• The mains socket is adequately earthed.
Position the appliance in the room to
be dehumidified.
Please follow the minimum distances
between the appliance and furniture or
walls, as stated in fig. 1.
Failure to do so would obstruct ventila-
tion, jeopardising correct operation of
the appliance.
When the appliance is functioning.
You should keep all doors and windows
closed while the appliance is in opera-
If doors and windows are opened, the
temperature and humidity in the room
may change and it could therefore
require longer to dehumidify the room.
With temperatures of less than 1 °C or
above 40 °C, dehumidification is auto-
matically deactivated and the
appliance switches to fan only mode.
If the humidity is lower than 20%, the safety circuit triggers automatically and the dehumidifier
shuts down to avoid damage.
If the humidity in the room drops, the dehumidification capacity is automatically reduced.
Do not drop or tilt the appliance.
If the appliance falls over, place it upright immediately.
Even when the room is dehumidified, condensation and mould may form externally or in poorly
ventilated points, for example behind furniture.

How to dehumidify
1) Plug the appliance into a mains socket.
2) Press the ON/OFF button.
• Make sure the “tank full/tank missing” light is off. If it is on, position the tank correctly or
empty it.
• The deflector opens and the appliance comes on in automatic mode.
To turn the appliance off, press the POWER ON/OFF button.
IMPORTANT: Before unplugging from the mains, wait for the fan to stop. The fan remains in ope-
ration for about two minutes after the appliance is turned off to allow the heating element to
cool down.
Selecting the operating mode
Press the dehumidification button ( ). Each time you press the ( ) button, the relative light
comes on (AUTO, MIN, MAX).
Auto: to maintain a comfortable level of humidity.
Min: for silent operation.
Max: to dehumidify rapidly.
NB: The humidity level is maintained at around 55% in Auto mode and the appliance therefo-
re comes on and goes off automatically.
(When a humidity of 55% is reached, the appliance switches into fan mode.)
How to dry laundry
Place the dehumidifier at least than 30 cm from the laundry to be dried.
NEVER place the dehumidifier under the laundry to be dried.
To dry the laundry, select the corresponding button. You can choose between two diffe-
rent programmes:
ECON economy function: Use this programme during the summer. The appliance operates
automatically with low energy consumption.
turbo mode: use this programme to dry garments rapidly and or during the winter.
Delayed shutdown timer
Before using this function, make sure the appliance is on.
Each time the TIMER button is pressed, the number of hours the appliance operates changes
(2-4-8 hours)
When the timer is set, even if the tank full light is flashing, after emptying and repositioning the
tank, the appliance continues to operate for the time left.

Emptying the tank/
Continous external draining
When the tank is full, the appliance stops automatically and the tank full light lights up.
Empty the tank:
1 Extract the tank slowly using the designed grip, holding the appliance firmly (fig. 2).
2 Position the handle of the tank vertically as shown (fig. 3).
3 Remove the lid (fig. 4).
4 Empty the tank (fig. 5).
5 Replace the lid and lower the handle.
6 Put the tank back in the appliance.
When the empty tank is put back, the appliance starts functioning according to the previous
settings. The tank full light goes off).
Do not remove the float inside the tank. The float is required to sense when tank is full. Replace
the lid correctly before returning the tank to the appliance.When you remove the tank, do not
touch internal parts of the dehumidifier. It could damage the appliance.
Push the tank into place carefully. If it knocks against the walls or is incorrectly inserted, the
appliance may not function. (The tank full light flashes.) Remove the tank then replace care-
fully in position.
Continuous external draining
If the appliance is to be operated for long periods but you are unable to empty the tank, it is
recommended to use the continuous drain facility.
1) Remove the rubber bung from the outlet tube (fig. 6).
2) Fasten the rubber hose to the outlet tube (fig. 7).
3) Make sure that the hose is not higher than the outlet tube, otherwise water will remain in the
tank; also check that the hose is not kinked (fig. 8).
N.B.: Keep the rubber bung. You will need it to plug the hose or close the outlet tube if you
revert to draining into the tank.

• Always unplug the appliance from the power socket before performing any cleaning or
maintenance operations.
• Never put the machine in water or let the cord or plug get wet.
Cleaning the body
• Wipe the appliance body with a damp cloth, then dry. Don’t use abrasives – they’ll scratch the
plastic surfaces.
• Never use alcohol or solvents to clean the appliance.
Cleaning the air filter
If the filter is dirty, air circulation is compromised and the effi-
ciency of the dehumidifying and air purifying functions decrea-
It is therefore good practice to clean the filter at regular intervals.
The frequency depends on the duration and conditions of ope-
If the unit is used regularly, you are recommended to clean the
filter once a week.
Removing the filter
• Extract the filter using the handle (fig. 9).
• Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust accumulations from
the filter. Never wash the filter in water.
Routine cleaning of the tank (once a month)
• Extract the tank and remove the lid as described previously. DO NOT remove the float!
• Rinse all the components with water two or three times.
Depending on where the dehumidifier is used, the inside of the tank may become dirty as
a result of dirt and dust contained in the air. If this is the case, wash in mild soapy water to
remove the most stubborn dirt”
If the appliance is not used for long periods
• After having unplugged the appliance from the power socket, empty the tank.
• Clean and reposition the filter.
• Cover the appliance to protect it from dust.
