Accessing the filter

TruSens-N-300-Ultrasonic-Humidifier-FIG-9

  5. Return the water tank on top of the base, plug in and power on your humidifier. Hold the Filter Reset Button until the red indicator turns off.

CARE & MAINTENANCE

Cleaning the tank and base reservoir on a regular basis is critical to ensure the optimal performance of the humidifier. The water filter will help to prevent mineral scale buildup, but a regular cleaning routine is important for addressing mineral scale in areas with especially hard water, as well as to prevent any odors that may be caused by standing water if the humidifier is not used for days at a time. If you have concerns about your local water quality or if you have especially hard water, we recommend using distilled water.

WARNING:
Always unplug the humidifier before removing the water tank. Always empty any water from the tank before cleaning. Always allow any remaining water in the reservoir to cool before cleaning.

REGULAR MAINTENANCE

We recommend that the following is carried out when you refill the water tank:

  1. Rinse the water tank with water and wipe clean.
  2. Dry with clean cloth.

Note:
Lower humidity control settings or turn off the humidifier if moisture forms on wall or windows

WARNING:
Do not use any detergents or cleaning chemicals. Do not place any part of the humidifier in a dishwasher. Do not submerge the base reservoir underwater at any time.

WEEKLY MAINTENANCE

Base Reservoir

TruSens-N-300-Ultrasonic-Humidifier-FIG-10

  2. Remove the covers of the UV-C chamber and PTC heater.
  3. Pour 20 fl oz cup of distilled white vinegar into the reservoir, making sure that the atomizer, UV-C chamber and PTC heater are submerged in vinegar. Allow the vinegar to soak for 30 minutes, and then carefully empty the vinegar by pouring out of the left side of the base.
  4. Dampen a soft cloth with undiluted white vinegar and gently wipe the reservoir, including all components.
  5. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and dry with a clean cloth.

Water Tank

FAQ & TROUBLESHOOTING

 

Where do I place the SensorPod™?

 

Anywhere you want to measure the humidity within the room.

For optimal results, place the SensorPod™ up to 33ft (10 m) away from the humidifier on a counter or table, within line of sight of the humidifier. In Auto Mode, the humidifier will work to distribute humidity until the SensorPod reads an acceptable level.

 

How often do I need to change the filter?

 

That’s easy! The humidifier’s replacement indicator will notify you when it is time to replace the water softening filter. Plan on replacing the water filter every 3-4 months, with the normal use of 8 hours per day and average hardness of water.

 

How often do I need to replace the aromatherapy pad?

 

The humidifier comes with one aroma pad. Replace as needed.

 

Humidifier won’t turn on.

 

Check that the power cord is connected securely to both the wall outlet and the humidifier. Check if there is a power outage in the outlet by trying a nearby light or device, or by trying a working device in the same outlet.

 

Check that there is water in the tank, and consider filling the tank to the “Max” indicator line.

 

Please contact us if you’re still having a problem (page 19).

 

Humidifier won’t go into Auto Mode.

OR

Humidity indicators are off. OR

Humidifier’s sensor signal indicator is blinking.

 

First, check that the SensorPod is within range of the humidifier (up to 33ft/10m).

 

Next, check the SensorPod batteries and consider replacing them with new batteries.

 

If the connection is still failing, see the below instructions on repairing the SensorPod’s connection.

 

I’ve lost my SensorPod™!

 

Don’t worry! Please contact our customer support team and you can order a replacement SensorPod. Follow the easy pairing instructions below to pair your replacement SensorPod with your existing humidifier!

Pairing SensorPod™ and Humidifier

The SensorPod communicates with the humidifier using radio frequency signals and is already paired and ready for use when you open the box. In the rare event that the signal is interrupted, the humidifier’s sensor indicator light will blink. You can repair the connection in just a few easy steps.

  1. HOLD the Power Button on the humidifier for 3 seconds, until you should hear two chimes.
  2. HOLD the Power Button on the SensorPod remote control panel for 5-7 seconds.
  3. The connection is established when the humidifier’s sensor indicator light is lit with no blinking, and the humidity display turns on.
