BEFORE USING YOUR DEHUMIDIFIER
Please read this manual carefully. It contains instructions to help you use,
maintain, and get the most use out of your dehumidifier.
Electrical Safety
Grounding
This dehumidifier must be grounded to reduce the risk
of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the
electric current. This dehumidifier has a power cord
with a grounding wire and a grounded 3-prong plug.
ONLY PLUG INTO AN OUTLET THAT IS PROPERLY INSTALLED
AND GROUNDED.
Power Supply Cord Wiring Requirements
115 Volt (103.5 min. – 126.5 max)
15 amp time-delay fuse or circuit breaker
Adapter plug is not recommended…
however…
Since most 2-prong outlets are not grounded, we
strongly advise against using an adapter plug.
HOWEVER, a temporary connection may be made
where local codes permit if the 2-prong wall outlet is
properly grounded.
FOR SAFETY REASONS, make sure the larger prong of
the adapter goes into the large slot.
FOR PROPER GROUNDING
Ground the adapter to the outlet by using the outlet
cover screw to secure the ground terminal to the
outlet box.
Be absolutely certain that the outlet is grounded
through the house wiring. DO NOT USE the
dehumidifier until a proper ground has been made.
Extension Cord
If an extension cord is required to reach the nearest
wall receptacle, use only a UL-listed, 3-wire, grounding
type, 16 AWG, 15A, 125V appliance extension cord.
NO OTHER EXTENSION CORD IS PERMITTED.
WA R N I N G
Improper use of the grounding plug can
result in the risk of an electric shock, injury,
fire, or death. Call a qualified electrician if you do
not 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 a professional 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.
