10 en Description 2 3 4 4 5 9 6 7 1 8 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 condensation,whichappearsonallcoldsurfacessuchaswin- 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. Thiswillincreasethedehumidifyingcapacityoftheappliance considerably. 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. DESCRIPTION ACCESSORIES 1. Control panel 2. Water level viewing window 3. Condensate collection tank 4.

Electrical connections Afterhavingtransportedtheappliancewaitatleastonehour 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 system. 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 follows: 1) Make sure the appliance is unplugged and the tank is empty. 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).
13 en Nota Bene: When carrying out these operations be careful not o incline the appliance by more than 45°; in any case,oncethecastorshavebeenassembled,waitatleastone 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. Whentheoperationiscomplete,putthetankbackincorrect- 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. Fig. 2 Use a b Fig. 1 Fig. 3 2 Fig. 4 Fig. 5 NO NO YES

16 en CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE 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 • Clean with a slightly damp cloth and dry with a dry cloth. • Do not use petrol, alcohol or solvents to clean the ap- pliance. • 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- tervals.Frequencydependsontheconditionsanddurationof 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 additiontotrappingdustparticles,hasananti-bacterial action. 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 dust.

The product must not be disposed of as urban 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 separately. The illegal disposal of the product by the user entails the application of administrative sanctions envisioned by the regulation in force. Fig. 6 Cleaning and maintenance /Features
17 en IF SOMETHING DOES NOT WORK Check the following before calling the authorisedTechnical Service Centre operating in your area. PROBLEMS CAUSES SOLUTION The appliance is operating in dehumi- difying mode but the humidity does not decrease. The filter is clogged. Either the temperature or the humidi- ty in the room is too low. The room is too large for the dehu- midifying power of the appliance, or there are too many sources of humidi- ty (boiling pots, etc.). The set humidity value is too high. Clean the filter. In certain conditions it is normal for the appliance not to dehumidify. Check the operating limits of the appliance in the “Technical Specifi- cations” chapter. In certain cases it is advisable to heat the room you wish to dehumidify. Decrease the set humidity value. Theappliancedoesnotoperateforap- proximately 3 minutes after start up.
