Humidifier Operating Instructions

  • Remove the unit's water tank, turn it over and turn the reservoir cap counter-clockwise to remove.

  • Fill the reservoir with cool tap water. Screw the cap back on tightly by turning it clockwise.

  • Place the reservoir tank back into place and plug the unit into a 120 volt AC outlet.

  • Turn the power to the "On" position and choose the level of mist intensity, from low to high. The lower the intensity, the longer the unit will run.

  • Allow the humidifier to run for five to 15 minutes before the presence of mist is seen. Once the mist appears, point the unit away from any furniture, bedding or walls, if this has not already been done.

  • Turn off the unit and remove the reservoir once it is empty and requires refilling.
