QUICK START GUIDE
1. Fill with water and plug into standard power outlet.
Note: Please make sure that the power outlet is set to correct settings as per product specifications.
2. Place near open door or window.
Note: Evaporative Air Coolers work on evaporative cooling mechanism which requires cross ventilation.
3.Turn ON and enjoy the cooling breeze.
Note: Start with LOW speed and gradually increase to higher speed for optimum cooling performance.
Read all instructions carefully before setting up and operating the unit, and please keep this instruction manual for future reference. This manual is designed to provide you with important information needed to setup, operate, maintain, and troubleshoot your cooler. Failure to follow these instructions may damage and/or impair its operation and void the warranty
COOLER LOCATION (IMPORTANT TO READ)
Place the cooler in front of an open door or window. Ensure that there is adequate cross - ventilation in the room by leaving a door or window open opposite from the cooler. Following these rules will ensure your cooler will work assertively as possible.
NATURAL ENERGY EFFICIENT COOLING
Evaporative air cooling is the natural way of cooling, similar to a breeze blowing across a lake. This breeze drops the temperature and has a relaxing cooling effect. The evaporative air cooler cools the air by means of the evaporation of water. When water evaporates into the air, the result is a mixture of air and water molecules. This chemical change requires heat which is taken from the water molecules, resulting in cooler air propelled from the unit.
The recommended maximum relative humidity level is 60% or less, which allows a noticeable temperature decrease. The temperature decrease will be greater in drier climates because higher evaporation occurs when humidity is low. The evaporative air cooler should not be used in enclosed spaces. It must be kept level and there must be water in the water tank. The room should have doors and windows opened to allow free air ¬ow. The evaporative air cooler works best when placed near an open window, so that outside air is drawn into the evaporative air cooler, the air circulates in the room, then exits via the door. The maximum cooling effect is felt when a person is in the flow of air coming out of the evaporative air cooler. The evaporative air cooler can also be used to humidify dry air during cool weather. To be used for humidification the windows and doors should be closed to allow the humidified air to accumulate. The evaporative air cooler is not an air conditioner as it does not use a compressor or refrigerant gas.
READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS:
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed.
Always unplug the product before refilling the water tank. Always unplug the appliance from the power source before cleaning, servicing or relocating the unit.
Remove the power cord from the electrical receptacle by grasping and pulling on the power cord plug-end only, never pull the cord.
DO NOT use the product in areas where gasoline, paint or other flammable goods and objects are stored.
DO NOT cover the air inlet or outlet on the appliance as this If the unit is damaged or it malfunctions, do not continue to operate it.
Refer to the troubleshooting section and /or please seek professional advice.
Place the unit on a level floor. Never locate the product where it may fall into a bathtub or other water container.
DO NOT use in bathrooms or outdoors.
Always grip the side handles to move the unit.
This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children or elderly) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
This product is not intended for use in wet or damp locations.
DO NOT leave the appliance operating unattended for any extended period of time.
WARNING CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
Before cleaning the unit, switch it to the off position and remove the plug from the power socket. To clean the outside, use a damp cloth to remove dirt and dust. Never use detergents, corrosive elements or any chemicals to clean this product. When the product is not in use, store the unit in a dry place out of direct sunlight.
CLEANING AND DRAINING THE WATER TANK Turn the power off and disconnect the unit from power supply. Move the unit to a location where it can be drained and remove the drainage tube/cap.
Once the tank is empty, refill with clean water and drain it again. This should be repeated weekly to maintain the integrity of the unit and to remove particles filtered from the air. Once the tank is clean, refill the water tank. The unit is now ready to be used again.
MAINTAINING & CHANGING THE HONEYCOMB
The appliance is supplied with Honeycomb cooling media. The cleaning frequency for the Honeycomb media depends on local air and water conditions. In areas where the mineral content of water is high, mineral deposits may build up on the honeycomb cooling media and restrict airflow. Draining the water reservoir and refilling with fresh water at least once a week will help reduce mineral deposits. If mineral deposits remain on the Honeycomb media, the media should be removed and washed under fresh water. The media should be cleaned every two months or sooner, depending on your needs. Do not run the unit with stale water in the tank. It is recommended to empty the tank and refill it with fresh water if the water has been standing in the tank for an extended period of time. For best results, allow the honeycomb cooling media to dry after each use by turning on the cool function 15 minutes before turning the unit off.
To change the Honeycomb, remove the hand screws which hold the side panel (Refer Fig.1). Remove the Honeycomb holder and replace the Honeycomb. Refix the Honeycomb holder and screw back the panel to the unit.
