The Quilo 3in1 is a fan, evaporative air cooler and humidifier. These three functions are achieved through differing combinations of fanning power and evaporative cooling. This pictorial guide will show you how to activate each function and how to get the most out of your unit.
Starting from right to left:
Power – Switches unit on and off.
Evaporative Cooling – Evaporative Cooling mode activates the evaporative cooling system. When selected, you will hear the pump circulating water through the system. Use this mode for both cooling and humidifying. For optimal cooling, fill both the water tray and ice compartment; for humidifying, fill just water tray.
Fan Speed – Toggles the Fan Speed between low, medium, high and auto. You can use this setting solo or together with the evaporative cooling mode. For fanning, use this setting solo; for cooling, select Evaporative Cooling + a high fan speed; for humidifying, select Evaporative Cooling + a low fan speed.
Timer – Programs the unit to switch off in increments of 30 minutes, up to 7.5 hours.Oscillate – Activates the fan oscillation.
Turbo – Maximizes fan power.
Sleep – Minimizes fan power.
Adding Ice to Ice Compartment
You can carefully swivel the louvers up and down to your desired fan direction.
When you use the Quilo on Evaporative Cooling mode, whether for evaporative air cooling or for humidifying, it requires water. Slide out the tray and fill with water using the Min/Max indicators to guide you. If your tray includes a filter, pour water through the filter to ensure the water in the unit will be free of residues.
For best routine maintenance, after each use of the Evaporative Cooling mode, switch to Fan mode for 15 minutes before switching the unit off. This will ensure the honeycomb cooling media does not accumulate bacteria which leads to mold.
To prevent mineral deposits, drain and replace the water in the water tray weekly. Remove any debris from the water filter sponge, rinse and replace. Every two months or sooner (depending on your weather and water conditions), check and clean the carbon dust filter and the honeycomb cooling media. These are located behind the rear grill on the back of the unit. Remove the rear grill and the carbon dust filter will be attached to its reverse side. Carefully snap off the holding bands and rinse the filter in running water. Allow to dry before replacing. Pull out the honeycomb cooling media, slide off the honeycomb frame and rinse in running water. WARNING: Disconnect the power outlet before removing the rear grill or cleaning the unit.
If you are retiring the Quilo for a longer time period, allow it to run on Fan only mode for 1-2 hours to ensure all parts are fully dry. Drain and dry the water tray. Go through the maintenance steps for the carbon dust filter and the honeycomb cooling media. Store in a dry location, at room temperature, away from direct sunlight.
