Call a qualified electrician if you don’t understand the grounding instructions or if you are not sure if the dehumidifier is properly grounded, if the wall outlet is not grounded, please contact an electrician to have it replaced with a properly grounded outlet. Do not, under any circumstances, cut or remove the third (ground) prong from the power cord.


  1.  Ground the adapter to the outlet by using the outlet cover screw to secure the ground terminal to the
    outlet box.
  2.  Please confirm the outlet is grounded through the house wiring. If the grounding connector breaks.

Controls on the Dehumidifier

When starting the dehumidifier, turn knob to the right until unit turns on. Adjust knob to desired level of dryness turn the control knob clockwise for more drying. In the EXTRA DRY position, the unit will run longer and extract more moisture from the air.


Auto Frost Sensor
When temperature gets down to 60°F or lower, ice may form on the evaporator coils preventing removal of moisture The FROST CONTROL stops the compressor when this happens but allows the fan to continue running. When the
ice is no longer present it starts the compressor.


Red indicator Light
When light comes on, automatic flow control turns the unit off. Turn the humidity control off before emptying the bucket.


Fan Speed
High speed for higher moisture removal. Low speed for quieter operation.
