ALORAIR Sentinel SLGR 1400X Commercial Dehumidifier 140 PPD with Pump

Important Notes

  • Always connect your dehumidifier using a grounded electrical connection (as required for all electrical appliances). The use of non-grounded wiring will void the warranty.
  • Your dehumidifier should only be repaired by a qualified technician.
  • Do not use the dehumidifier in standing water. If there is a chance that the dehumidifier has been flooded, unplug the unit, remove the cover, and allow it to dry completely before proceeding.
  • Do not insert objects or your fingers into the inlet or discharge.
  • Do not use water to clean the exterior of the dehumidifier. To clean unit, unplug from power, then use a damp cloth to wipe the exterior.
  • Do not stand on dehumidifier or place objects on it.
  • Do not use with extension cord or plug adapter.
  • Unless otherwise noted, all maintenance should be done with the unit powered off.
  • The unit must be used in the upright position.
  • Do not restrict airflow in to or out of the unit. This may cause the unit to overheat.

How It Works

AlorAir dehumidifiers use an integrated humidistat to monitor theconditioned space. When the relative humidity goes above the selected setpoint, the dehumidifier will energize. Air is then drawn across an evaporator coil, which is cooler than the dew point of air. This means moisture will condense out of the air. The air is then reheated through the condenser coil and distributed back into the room.

Installation

  1. Place dehumidifier on a level surface.
    • Do not place unit directly on vapor barrier. For example, use blocks or pavers to create a level surface.
    • If unit has been turned or flipped so that the compressor did not remain upright, place the unit on a level surface and wait a minimum of 2 hours before proceeding.
  2. Set up the drain line
    • Locate the dehumidifier near a suitable drain (16.4′ drain hoseincluded). Allow for proper drainage and routing of needed drain pipes
    • Connect the drainpipe to the quick connector of the dehumidifier before placing the drain pipe into the sewer
    • The dehumidifier is equipped with a built-in drainage pump to support the drainage heightof 14.7′
  3. Plug dehumidifier into grounded 15 amp circuit.

Key Functions

Key Functions

  1. PowerKey
    • Use this button to turn the dehumidifier on and off.
    • Press once to turn machine on. You will hear two beeps and the Power Icon, light will illuminate green (solid or flashing depending on mode).
    • Press the power button a second time and you will hear one beep as the machine shuts down. Note that there is a 1-minute fan delay.
  2. ArrowButtonsArrowButtons Use the up and down arrow buttons to set the desired humidity set point on the display screen .
    • The setpoint can be any number between 36%-90%. When the indoor humidity is higher than the setpoint, the unit will operate.
    • Keep in mind that the displayed humidity levels are approximate ( +/-5%)
  3. ContinuousMode
    • To set the unit to run continuously regardless of humidity, simply use the down arrow key to set the humidity below 36%.
    • The continuous light will illuminate green and the display will show “CO”.
    • To switch back to normal humidistat operation, use the arrow keys to move the setpoint above 36%.
  4. Manual Drain Button
    • If you need to store or move your dehumidifier, press the “Drain” button to remove water from the integral pump’s reservoir.

Indicator Lights

  1. Humidity Display Screen
    • The display screen has two functions:
      1. When the unit is powered on, it shows the humidity of the space
      2. When setting the desired humidity level, the screen will show the set point.
        After a brief delay, it will revert to current humidity of the space.
  2. Power Indicator Light
    • This light indicates that the unit is properly powered on and ready to operate.
    • Always make sure the unit is “off” prior to performing any service, unless otherwise indicated.
    • If the humidity is above the setpoint, the light will be solid green and the machine will operate.
    • If the humidity is below the setpoint, the unit will be in standby mode and the light will be flashing.
  3. Continuous Mode/ Auto Defrost Light
    • When the light illuminates green, it indicates that the dehumidifier is set to the continuous operation mode.
    • When the light illuminates red, it means the unit is in auto defrost mode and clearing the evaporator coils of any ice buildup.
  4. Compressor Light
    • When the light illuminates red, it indicates the compressor has been initiated but is currentlywarming up.
    • Once the light switches to green, it means the compressor is currently in working status.

Pump Maintenance

Your AlorAir Sentinel SLGR 1400X is equipped with an integral condensate pump designed to pump water from the dehumidifier out to the desired drain.
The pump requires routine maintenance that is not covered by the warranty.

Preventative maintenance is necessary to prevent issues from dirt and slime that may accumulate in the drain system. This includes the drain pan, hose to the condensate pump, pump reservoir, pump head assembly, and discharge tubing.

Removing the Pump

  1. Remove the 7 screws on the side panel and set panel aside.
  2. Remove the screw holding the pump in place.
  3. Undo the 3 pump electrical quick connects and 1drain quick connect.
  4. Insert a flat head screwdriver into the notch on the side of the pump. This will allow you to gently lift the pump of fits reservoir (the reservoir remains attached to the unit).
    Removing the Pump

Basic Pump Cleaning

Troubleshooting

Symptom Cause Solution
Display is Blank Poor Connection Verify that both ends of the power cord are plugged in
Power Outage Reset power
No Air Flow Filter is Dirty Clean the filter
Air Inlet or Outlet is Blocked. Clear the blockage
Trouble Code: E1 Humidity Sensor or Communication Error Check to ensure that the sensor wire is connected at both ends, if no issues are visible, the sensor may be faulty.
Trouble Code: E4  

Problem with Pump

Verify that the pump is properly installed and functioning. If so, unplug the unit for two minutes, then restart.
Trouble Code: LO Room Temperature is below 33.8℉ Increase the room temperature so it is within operation range (above 33.8℉). If error still display, check sensor.
Trouble Code:HI Room Temperature is above 110℉ Decrease the room temperature so it is within operating range (below 110℉). If error still displays, check the sensor.
E5 Trouble Code Refrigerant Leak Contact Your Installer for Assistance.

Pump Alarm- E4 Error Code
**UNIT WILL NOT FUNCTION UNTIL ERROR CODE IS CLEARED

If E4 (pump alarm) is shown on the display, complete the following steps:

  1. Reset the unit by unplugging the power cord and then reconnecting it.
  2. Manually check to see if the pump is operational by pressing the drain button. Check if the pump energizes and de-energizes properly. Additionally, check to see if any water purged from the system.
