Safety Notes

  • The Storm Pro dehumidifier must always be connected using a grounded electrical connection as required for all electrical appliances. The warranty is voided and all responsibility for the operation transfers to the owner if non-grounded wiring is utilized.
  • Your Storm Series dehumidifier must be maintained and serviced by qualified technicians.
  • Storm dehumidifiers are intended for use only when the unit is installed in a level and upright position. Operating the unit in any other position could cause water to come in contact with the electrical components.
  • Before moving the dehumidifier, turn off the unit and allow the pump reservoir to empty (if the unit is already ff, press the “P” button to confirm the drain reservoir is empty). After the pump has finished operation, unplug the power cord and relocate the unit to the desired position.
  • If the inside of the machine has gotten wet for any reason, the unit should be opened and allowed to dry thoroughly before reconnecting it to electricity and restarting.
  • For proper operation, neither the inlet or discharge should be positioned against a wall. A minimum of 8″ clearance between the Storm and any obstruction is required.
  • Do not insert any objects or fingers into the inlet or discharge.
    All work on the machine should be done with the unit off and unplugged.
  • Do not spray water or cleaner directly on the exterior of the unit. Only use a damp cloth to clean the exterior and always unplug the unit first.
  • Do not use the unit as a shelf or device to hang clothes as this could cause damage to the unit.
  • Do not stand on the machine.

How Your Storm Dehumidifier Works
The Storm Pro dehumidifier utilizes its integral humidistat to monitor the conditioned space.
Once conditions are outside the desired setpoint, the compressor energizes and air is drawn across an evaporator coil. The evaporator coil is cooler than the dew point of the air
so water vapor will turn into liquid condensation. The air is then reheated through the condenser coil and distributed back into the room.

Machine running time fault display:

ALORAIR Storm Pro Commercial Dehumidifier - figure 20

Make fault judgment and take corresponding actions after starting up. Regardless of the state, the fault is executed first and the fault code is displayed on the interface. If there is a fault in the sub-menu operation, immediately return to this interface display fault (including defrosting state). (The fault is judged when the pump works, and the fault is displayed as usual, but the pump needs to complete the water pumping this time). Multiple faults can be displayed at the same time.

Description of fault display:

  • Humidity sensor fault: when the humidity sensor unit fault or signal can not be transmitted, the fault is judged to be E1. The machine is out of operation (power on again after troubleshooting). The pump button can operate.
  • Ambient temperature T≤2: When the sensor continuously detects the ambient temperature of inlet air T=2 degrees for 600 seconds, the fault is judged to be LO and the whole machine is stopped. Other values correspond to the temperature region operation. (recoverable). At this time, the interface cannot be operated. The pump button can be operated.
  • Ambient temperature T≥45: When the sensor continuously detects the inlet air environment temperature T=45 degrees for 15 seconds, the fault is judged to be HI and the whole machine is stopped. Other values correspond to the temperature region operation. (recoverable). At this time, the interface cannot be operated. The pump button can be operated.
  • When the compressor is started, if the coil temperature value detected is greater than or equal to (ambient temperature -3 degrees) for 30 minutes continuously, it is judged to be fluorine deficient (except defrosting), E5 is displayed, and the machine cannot be stopped for operation (It needs to be powered up again after troubleshooting). After the power is back on, the machine runs continuously for another 30 minutes for judgment. (The temperature probe is broken, the temperature needs to be minimal).  The pump button can be operated.
  • After the pump works for 28 seconds when the high water level is switched on, the E4 fault is judged when the high water level switch is switched on for 3 consecutive seconds, and the E4 fault is displayed. The machine stops and cannot be operated (The pump needs to be powered up again after troubleshooting). The pump can be operated.

Preparing the Unit for Use

Setup

  1. Position the machine so there is a minimum of 8″ clearance for the back and sides. or directly to a specific location for spot dry. If the compressor didn’t remain vertical during transportation, wait a minimum of 30 minutes before turning the unit on.
  2. The included drain line attaches to the unit via a quick connection fitting that is located on the base of the unit. The drain line should be routed to a suitable drain or outside. Since the unit has an integral drain pump, the drain line may go up vertically (no more than 15′) prior to reaching the final drain location.

Basic Pump Cleaning:

  1. Press the pump button (P) to drain any water from the reservoir.
  2. Disconnect power to the dehumidifier.
  3. Mix a 16 oz cleaning solution of one of the following: 1 oz bleach/15 oz water or 4 oz white vinegar/12 oz water. Pour the solution into the drain tray at the base of the  coils.
    NOTE: If you get any cleaning solution on the coils, flush with water
  4. Allow cleaning solution to soak for 15 minutes.
  5. Reconnect power to dehumidifier.
  6. Pour clean water into the reservoir so the pump activates twice (about 16-32 oz. water)
  7. Repeat if needed or refer to Advanced instructions.

Advanced Pump Cleaning:

  1. a. Use the manual pump button (P), to drain any water from the reservoir.
    b. Unplug the unit, and remove the pump from the reservoir (see page 13)
    c. Use a wet-dry vac or paper towels to remove any remaining water from the pump reservoir.
  2. Fill the pump reservoir with a cleaning solution (15 oz water / 1 oz bleach or 12 oz water /4 oz white vinegar).
  3. Reassemble the pump and use the manual pump button to flush the mixture through the discharge tubing.
  4. Mix another batch of cleaning solution then pour it slowly into the drain pan under the evaporator coil and allow it to clean the hose from pan to pump. This process can be stopped when the pump energizes 1 time.
    NOTE: If you get any bleach/water mixture on coils, flush with water.
  5. Pour sufficient clean water through the drain pan so that the pump activates twice (16-32 ounces).
  6. Reassemble the unit and return it to operational status.

Cleaning the Coils
The coils on your dehumidifier also need to be cleaned once per year. To clean, simply spray with a self-rinsing, foaming coil cleaner (such as WEB Coil Cleaner).
