Prepare for operation
NOTE: The tasks and timings shown here for your Humidifier are based on a single-family home (owned), located in Massachusetts, United States, with priority set at ‘1 star' or higher, for all possible goals.
If you set your personalization differently in your Home Wizard app, then you may get reminders for different tasks and timings in your recommended home care program for your Humidifier.
Before the season begins, in accordance with your manufacturer's
recommendations, remove the cabinet and wipe the collector coil clean, then vacuum the condenser coil and the remainder of the unit to remove lint, dust, dirt. Over time, the pads that dispense the water will wear out, so they should be inspected annually for possible replacement. If the fan motor has oil ports, most manufacture's recommend a few drops of SAE20 oil. Even without ports, the motor shaft should be cleaned, and a few drops of oil added.
