1. Set down the device at its intended place. Ensure enough space is left behind, because there is an air inlet on the rear side and an air outlet in its front, below the door.
2. Put the jars with honey for decrystallization on the trays/drawers inside the dryer or a bucket with honey straight on the bottom floor.
3. Initially put both switches to “0” (the one located on the thermostat and the red one on the door atop). After inserting the power cord into the socket, switch the red one power key to “I”. The switch key suppose to start gleaming followed by ventilator buzzing.
4. When using a potentiometer knob on the thermostat (0 – 45 C˚) set the maximum desired temperature. Then switch a white thermostat button to “I”. After doing this, green and red lights suppose to turn on. Green light indicates that the thermostate is turned on, and the red one – heating is on. When the desired temperature is reached, one of the heating elements turns off followed by the extinguishing of the red light. However, ventilator still continues its work. When temperature drops down bellow the appointed one, the heating element turns on again followed by the red light.
5. After usage, the device must be cleaned thoroughly: unscrew the metal bottom lid and clean the space below, the soft white filter must be removed also and vacuum cleaned, and washed, if needed.
