DeLonghi DEX212F 12L Tasciugo AriaDry Dehumidifier - icon8 Please note!
Keep these Instructions for Use. If the appliance is transferred to other owners, they should also be given these instructions.

INSTALLATION

Position the appliance in the room to be dehumidified. A free space of at least 50 cm must be left at the front of the dehumidifier, so as not to block the air outlet. For efficient ventilation, a space of about 5-10 cm should be left at the back of the appliance. The condensate can be drained in one of the following ways:

a) Draining into the tank
The condensate can be drained directly into the tank. The tank can be easily removed (Fig.1).
b) Continuous external draining
If the appliance is to be operated for long periods but you are unable to empty the tank regularly, you are recommended to use continuous draining.

  1. Remove the continuous drain cap by turning it counterclockwise then remove the rubber stopper from the spout 2 (Fig. 2).
  2. Apply the accessory tube to the spout as shown in Figure 3.
  3. Make sure the end of the hose is no higher than the spout. Otherwise, the water will flow into the tank of the appliance (Fig. 4).
    Make sure there are no kinks in the hose.

HOW TO DEHUMIDIFY

  • Connect the appliance into an outlet.
  • Check that the “tank full/tank missing” indicator light ( DeLonghi DEX212F 12L Tasciugo AriaDry Dehumidifier - icon1) is turned off, otherwise empty the tank or position it correctly.
  • To turn the appliance on, press the ON/STAND-BY button.DeLonghi DEX212F 12L Tasciugo AriaDry Dehumidifier - icon9
  • Press the “MODE” (B2) button to select the desired humidity (DeLonghi DEX212F 12L Tasciugo AriaDry Dehumidifier - icon2 ). The appliance will adjust the humidity level according to your choice:

DeLonghi DEX212F 12L Tasciugo AriaDry Dehumidifier - icon3 Approx. 60% environment humidity
DeLonghi DEX212F 12L Tasciugo AriaDry Dehumidifier - icon4 Approx. 50% environment humidity
DeLonghi DEX212F 12L Tasciugo AriaDry Dehumidifier - icon5 Approx. 40% environment humidity

Selecting, DeLonghi DEX212F 12L Tasciugo AriaDry Dehumidifier - icon6 the “dry” function is activated, ideal to speed up the drying of laundry.

DeLonghi DEX212F 12L Tasciugo AriaDry Dehumidifier - icon8 Please note!

  • If the humidity in the room is greater than the set humidity, the appliance will start to dehumidify and will stop functioning only when the desired level of humidity is reached.

INDICATOR LIGHTS

DeLonghi DEX212F 12L Tasciugo AriaDry Dehumidifier - icon1 Tank control light (Tank control system)
This dehumidifier is equipped with a device that monitors the correct functioning of the appliance.
The corresponding indicator light, located on the control panel, turns on to warn the user when:

  1. the tank is full: empty the tank
  2.  the tank is missing: reposition the tank
  3. the tank is positioned incorrectly: position it properly
  4. in continuous drain: the hose is obstructed or the difference in level is too great (the water continues to be discharged into the tank) remove the obstruction. Once the cause has been eliminated, the light goes out and the appliance resumes operation.

DeLonghi DEX212F 12L Tasciugo AriaDry Dehumidifier - icon7 Low-temperature operation indicator light
When the room temperature is too low, the electronic low-temperature operation device is activated. The device makes the appliance operate by alternating dehumidification cycles and fan-only cycles, thus avoiding the formation of frost. For frequent use in cold environments, it is recommended to heat the room at the same time, even slightly. This allows the dehumidifier to operate in conditions that ensure better performance and faster dehumidification.

DeLonghi DEX212F 12L Tasciugo AriaDry Dehumidifier - icon8 Please note!

  • The appliance is equipped with a security device (delay of 3 minutes) that protects the compressor against too frequent starts and stops.
  • When started up, or when power is restored, the appliance operates in the mode selected before it shut down.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

Always remove the plug from the power socket before performing any cleaning or maintenance operations. For safety reasons, never wash the dehumidifier using a water jet.

Cleaning the cabinet

  • Clean the appliance using a damp cloth then dry with a dry cloth.
  • Never use petrol, alcohol or solvents to clean the appliance.
  • Never spray the appliance with insecticides or similar. These could cause the plastic parts to warp.

Cleaning the dust air filter or silver-ion air filter (on certain models only)
If the filter is dirty, air circulation is compromised and the efficiency of dehumidifying is decreased. It is therefore good practice to clean the filter at regular intervals. The frequency depends on the environment and the duration of the operation. If the unit is used constantly or systematically, you are recommended to clean the filter once a week.

  • To remove the air filter, remove the grill and extract the filter by pulling it (see Fig. 5).
  • Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust accumulations from the filter. If the filter is very dirty, rinse well with lukewarm water. The temperature of the water should not exceed 40˚C. After washing the filter, allow it to dry completely before reinserting it.
    If present, the silver-ion air filter, besides retaining powder particles, has also an efficient antibacterial action. In addition, it greatly reduces irritants such as pollen and spores. The filter is treated with small particles of silver (on the scale of millionths of a millimeter) which are able to block the multiplication of and destroy any bacteria or spores coming into contact with them.

Anti-allergen filter (on certain models only)
Some models are equipped with an anti-allergen filter that can notably reduce the concentration of allergens transported by air in a quick and efficient way.
To apply the filter, remove it from the packaging and insert it into its place in the grill at the back of the appliance, as shown in Figure 6.
It is recommended to replace the filter every 2 years.

If the appliance is not used for long periods

  • After unplugging the appliance from the power socket, empty the tank.
  • Clean and reposition the filter.
  • Cover the appliance with a plastic bag to protect it from dust.

Dustbin DISPOSAL

The appliance must not be disposed of with household waste but taken to an authorized waste separation and recycling center.
