Some notions on humidity
Air always contains a certain quantity of water in the form of
vapour; this determines the degree of humidity in a room.
The capacity of air to contain water vapour increases as its
temperature increases.
This is why in our homes, as soon as the temperature drops,
the air releases the water vapour contained in it, turning into
dows, walls etc.
The dehumidifier is an electric appliance that extracts humi-
dity from the air, avoiding the damage that it causes.
Studies have established that the ideal conditions for our
health and home are achieved when relative humidity is
between 40% and 60%.
With very low temperatures, you are recommended to heat
the room even minimally.
This is the only way, in fact, to allow the condensation that
forms on the windows and other cold surfaces to evaporate
into the air and be collected by the dehumidifier.
The air released by the dehumidifier is, however, generally
warmer than the air in the room.

Electrical connections
before starting it up.
Danger! Before plugging the appliance into the
mains, check the following:
• 	 The mains power supply corresponds to the working
voltage indicated on the rating plate.
• 	 The power socket and the electrical circuit are adequate
for the required load.
• 	 Themainssocketissuitablefortheplug,otherwisehave
the plug replaced by a qualified electrician.
• 	 The mains socket is connected to an efficient earthing
Setting it up for use
Position the appliance in the room to be dehumidified.
It is essential to leave a free space of at least 50 cm in front
of and above the dehumidifier, so as not to obstruct the air
intake and outlet.
For efficient ventilation it is advisable to leave a space of at
least 5-10 cm all around the appliance.
Applying the castors
If you wish to apply the castors to the appliance, proceed as
1) 	 Make sure the appliance is unplugged and the tank is
2) 	 Remove the rubber caps from the base of the appliance
by pulling them out hard, using pliers if necessary (see
figure 1/a).
3) 	 Apply the castors by inserting their pins into the holes
(see figure 1/b).

Nota Bene: When carrying out these operations be
careful not o incline the appliance by more than 45°; in any
hour before turning it on.
Draining the condensate water
The condensate can be drained in 2 ways:
a) Draining into the tank
The condensate can be drained directly into the tank.
With this draining system, when the tank is full, the applian-
ce stops and the screen displays the tank alarm .
When the tank is full, remove it as shown in fig. 2 and empty
it into a sink or a bathtub.
ly being careful to position the handle as show in figure 3.
b) Continuous external draining
If you require the appliance to operate for a long period of
time without periodically emptying the tank we advise you
to set up continuous draining as follows:
•	 Open the door on the side of the appliance and screw
the nozzle onto the fitting, as shown in figure 4.
•	 Insert a garden hose into the nozzle and lead the end of
the hose to a floor-level drain.
	 Make sure the tank is inserted correctly.
• 	 Make sure the hose is never placed at a height above
the level of the nozzle (fig. 5). Otherwise the water will
continue to drain back into the tank.
	 Make sure there are no kinks in the hose.

Always unplug the appliance from the power socket before
performing any cleaning or maintenance operations.
For safety reasons, never wash the dehumidifier using a jet
of water.
Cleaning the cabinet

• 	 Do not use petrol, alcohol or solvents to clean the ap-
• 	 Do not spray liquid insecticide or similar products as
they may deform the plastic.
Cleaning the anti-bacteria air filter
If the filter is dirty, air circulation is compromised and conse-
quentially the efficiency of the dehumidifier decreases.
It is therefore good practice to clean the filter at regular in-
operation. If the appliance is used constantly or frequently it
is advisable to clean the filter once a week.
•	 Once the tank has been taken out, remove the filter by
pulling it downwards (fig. 6).
•	 Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust accumulations
from the filter.
	 If the filter is very dirty, rinse it well with warm water.
	 The temperature of the water must not exceed 40°C.
	 After washing the filter allow it to dry completely be-
fore putting it back in place. The anti-bacteria filter, in
	 Furthermore, it considerably reduces other irritating
agents such as pollen and spores.
For long periods of downtime
•	 After unplugging the appliance from the power socket,
empty the tank.
• 	 Clean the filter and put it back in.
• 	 Cover the appliance with a plastic bag to protect it from

waste at the end of its working life.
It must be taken to appropriate local authority separate wa-
ste collection centres or to dealers providing this service.
Disposing of a household appliance separately avoids possi-
ble negative consequences for the environment and health
deriving from unsuitable disposal and allows to recover the
materials of which it is made in order to make significant sa-
vings of energy and resources.
The product has the crossed-out wheeled bin mark as a re-
minder of the obligation to dispose of household appliances
The illegal disposal of the product by the user entails the
application of administrative sanctions envisioned by the
