A NOTE ABOUT HUMIDITY
- To reduce excessive humidity or condensation, especially in small rooms, leave the room door open and adjust mist intensity to the low output setting.
- Too much humidity in the room may allow moisture to accumulate on surfaces where bacteria and fungi can grow. Moisture that gathers may also damage furniture and walls, especially wallpaper.
- To remove Mist Chamber, lift straight up off of Humidifier Base.
- To attach the Mist Chamber, align the front arrow on the mist chamber to the arrow on the base of the Humidifier.
NOTE: The humidifier will not operate when the Mist Chamber is not properly in place. This is a safety feature which helps to avoid overheating.

- Place Medicine Cup on top of the Mist Channel.
- BE CAREFUL not to overfill the Medicine Cup. Overfilling may cause medicine to spill into Mist Channel. Medicine in the Mist Channel may affect the operation of the humidifier.

IMPORTANT: Water left in the tank or base when not in use may result in buildup of mineral deposits and bacteria which may inhibit the output efficiency as well as void the warranty. If water remains in the Water Tank for more than a day or two, bacterial growth is possible.

- Always begin with the vent levers at minimum (all the way to the left). Rest your face gently on the mask. Do not press hard as the soft plastic may bend allowing steam to escape or the inhaler to tip & spill boiling water.
ADJUST THE MIST INTENSITY: by sliding the Vent Lever clockwise to allow more steam/increase the temperature or counterclockwise for lower steam flow/lower temperature. If the steam is still uncomfortably warm, lift your face 1-2 inches above the mask. Breathe normally through your nose and mouth, inhaling steam into your nasal and throat passages.
