- Set the humidifier on a stable, moisture-resistant surface, as the moisture from the unit can damage floors or furniture.
- Pull the water tank from the main unit and turn upside down to remove the tank cap.
- Fill the tank with up to 1 gallon of cool water. Do not use warm or hot water, as this may cause the unit to leak. Close the tank cap in a clockwise motion until tight.
- Turn the tank back over and set into the base unit. Plug the electrical cord into a power source.
- Set the power knob at "Low (I)" for less moisture and "High (II)" for maximum moisture. Turn the knob to "Off (O)" when finished with the machine.
- Monitor the "FilterCheck Indicator", which will move to "CHANGE" when it is time to clean the filter.
- Remove the main housing unit and tank. Lift out the old filter and discard.
- Replace with new filter and set the housing unit and tank back on the humidifier.
- Turn off the humidifier and lift the tank out of the main unit. Drain the water out of the tank and replace with clean water.
- Take the housing unit to a sink and lift out the wick filter. Drain out any water from the unit, rinse with clean water and wipe clean with a towel. Place the filter back into the base unit unless the "FilterCheck Indicator" shows that it is time to put in a new filter. Set the tank back on the unit and plug back in before use.
- Perform weekly maintenance by pouring 1 cup of vinegar into the base and scrubbing interior surfaces with a sponge. Drain and rinse well with water. Dry with a towel.
- Fill the tank half full with water and 1 tsp. bleach. Let sit for 20 minutes and wipe well with a sponge to remove any residue. Rinse well with water until no bleach can be detected. Wipe dry with a towel. Refill the tank with clean water and set back on the base unit.
