Cleaning Steps in an Online Dehumidifier Manual
1. You must unplug the dehumidifier and remove the water tank as instructed in the dehumidifier manual. Then, you should remove the screw which holds the grilles on to the body of the unit.
2. Prepare a mixture of detergent with warm water. At least one or two cups of bleach will do.
3. Look for the air filter. It is either located adjacent to the evaporation coil or at the front grille. Remove the filter and let be soaked in the bucket until the dirt loosen up. Use a stiff brush to do the cleaning.
4. Attach the brush tool to your vacuum and brush off the evaporation coils. Then, inspect the dehumidifier’s fin for any damage or bending. Clean the condenser’s coil and straighten the fins of the dehumidifier. To see the full body of the unit, remove the screw attached to the cabinet of the unit. Attach the crevice of your device and clean any remaining debris but take care of the unit’s blades. Lastly, re-attach the filter, grilles and the water tank.
