the cold tubes of the evaporator coil. The air then passes over the hot condenser coil and returns
to the conditioned space slightly warmer and dryer than when it entered the dehumidifier unit.
To concentrate drying all doors and windows should be kept closed.
Ebac Dehumidifier Positioning:
If at all possible the best location you should place your dehumidifier unit in the center of the room. However if already experiencing a damp part in a certain area of the room then place the dehumidifier particularly apparent the outlet grille should be pointed towards it. NOTE: Both inlet grille and outlet grille of the dehumidifier unit must have clear space around them and not be obstructed in anyway.
Connect the power mains cable to a designated 30 Amp breaker. As follows:-
For Models without plugs:-
Green/Yellow Earth (ground)
Connect a 3/8” inside diameter hose to the water outlet pipe. Secure the hose using a worm drive clip. The hose should at no point be raised higher than the outlet pipe. Failure to observe this requirement will result in flooding of the dehumidifier unit.
The Ebac 2600 has a water pump fitted as standard which is capable of discharging the condensate water 20ft vertical lift away from the unit & 100ft horizontal. The water can, therefore, be discharged into a drain some distance away.
WARNING: DO NOT RUN THE MACHINE WITHOUT THE COVERS IN PLACE FOR ANY LONGER THAN NECESSARY. DO NOT REMOVE/REPLACE THE COVERS WITH THE POWER ON.
Remove the cover by releasing the retaining bolts and follow the test procedure laid out below:-
1. Set the adjustable humidistat to maximum.
2. Switch the machine to the on position, this will result in the compressor starting to run and
the fan blade starting to rotate.
3. When the compressor has been running for 20 minutes the coils located above the drain tray
will be evenly coated in frost. (If the ambient temperature is above 77ºF the coils will be
covered in water.)
4. After the machine has been running for approximately 50 minutes the unit will automatically
enter into defrost. The defrost cycle lasts for approximately 3 minutes, this will result in the
frost on the coils melting and dripping into the drainage tray.
5. After the defrost has finished the machine will return to normal operation.
6. Ensure the condensate drains away from the machine.
Best Settings For the Adjustable Dehumidifier
The position of the humidistat depends on the application the K100 is being used for and the conditions within the area to be dried. The worse the conditions within the area then the higher the humidistat should be set (i.e. the machine will run for a longer period of time to ensure all the moisture is reduced sufficiently). As a rough guide the humidistat wants to be set at approximately 50% for factories and warehouses, and for basements or de-flooding then the
