Producing/expelling peculiar smell

When you first use the dehumidifer and periodically afterwards, you may notice a smell coming from the dehumidifier. This is caused by the Zeolite dessicant material and is NOT a sign that the dehumidifer is faulty NOR is it harmful to humans or pets.

The smell have been described as a burning/sour smell. It is normal and will not last long.

Solution:
For new units, leave your unit running on "LAUNDRY" mode in the garage or an open space for a few days. This should help reduce the smell.  

For more information on the smell, kindly refer to the user manual provided.
