The Carefree Humidifier Plus is a home appliance designed to treat the dry air in a room. The device's primary feature is the "PermaWick," a component that pulls water from the humidifer's reservoir, filtering out impurities in the process; unlike similar components in other humidifiers, the PermaWick is designed to be reusable. Other features include a digital humidistat, a 36-hour run time, antimicrobial components, regulated steam release, automatic shutoff and a refill light indicator.
Select an installation location roughly six inches away from any walls, furnishings or other obstacles. Situate the humidifier's base on a level surface that will be resistant to water. Pull the device's housing upwards until it detaches. Inspect the base and confirm that the filter is installed. Return the housing to is previous location.
Grip the handle attached to the top of the humidifier's water tank. Pull the handle upwards until the tank detaches from the base. Carry the water tank over to a nearby bathtub or sink. Remove the cap from the bottom of the tank.
Turn on the cold water tap. Fill the water tank to near-capacity, but avoid overfilling. Place the cap back on the tank. Twist the cap clockwise until it is secure.
Hold the water tank's handle with one hand while using the other to support the bottom. Carry the tank over to the humidifier and install it in the base unit. Confirm that the control knob is set to the "OFF" position. Plug the humidifier's power cord into a nearby outlet.
Turn the control knob to the desired speed setting. Examine the humidistat display to determine the current setting. Use the buttons located next to the display to increase or decrease the desired humidity level by increments of five percent.
Allow the humidifier to run for as long as desired; if the tank runs empty, turn off the machine temporarily and refill the tank.
Tips & Warnings
- The light next to the humidistat will turn green when the humidity reaches the desired level; the device will stop treating the air at this point, until the humidity goes down.
- Use a solution of water and vinegar to clean any mineral buildups that accumulate in the humidifier's base or tank over time.
- Prior to placing the humidifier into storage after use, dry the various components thoroughly to prevent bacterial buildup.
- Do not allow water to fall onto the humidifier's control panel or into the vents installed on the device's housing.
