Desiccant dehumidifier is emitting a bad smell

Is your Ionmax desiccant dehumidifier (ION610, ION612 or ION632) emitting a smell after a period of time? Here's why it happens and how to resolve it.

Over time the dehumidifier's desiccant disc may absorb odours, dust and other particles.

Hence when the device is heated, it can release some of these particles back into the environment.

You can remove the smell by taking the device to a well ventilated open area such as the garage or laundry room then run the device on turbo mode for a few hours.

This should help burn off the odour and dust particles.
