Congratulations on your purchase of the BONECO H300.

At the same time, the integrated AH300 POLLEN Filter effectively alleviates the discomfort for people with allergies.

In addition, the BONECO app gives you access to a wide variety of programs and automated actions you can use to adapt the BONECO H300 to your personal needs in every detail. Cleaning the appliance is just as easy because most of the parts can be cleaned in your washing machine or dishwasher.

 FIRST CLEANING

BONECO Humidifier & Air Purifier User Manual  & troubleshooting 7 Production-related residue on the water base and water tank may lead to foaming, and thereby to water escaping. For this reason, before the first use, both elements must be cleaned with warm water and dishwashing detergent. Thoroughly rinse the parts under running water.

MANUAL OPERATION

ON MANUAL OPERATION

The BONECO H300 offers extensive possibilities for control and automation, which are controlled by the BONECO app. Furthermore, some basic functions are available that you can control manually using the knob on the front.

AUTO MODE

If you have never operated the BONECO H300 with the BONECO app and switch it on for the first time, the appliance will operate as a humidifier and air purifier in AUTO mode. The appliance is preset to a target humidity of 50 percent. The performance level is automatically adapted to the current humidity: The drier the air, the higher the output level.

If the preset target humidity is exceeded by 2 percent, the appliance switches to standby mode, which is indicated by the pulsing LED:
BONECO Humidifier & Air Purifier User Manual  & troubleshooting 10If the humidity drops below the set level, the BONECO H300 resumes operation.

ADAPTED AUTO MODE

If you have already operated the BONECO H300 with the BONECO app and set a different humidity, that value is automatically taken over when it is switched on.

SWITCHING ON AND OFF

1. Briefly press the output regulator once to switch on tBONECO H300.
BONECO Humidifier & Air Purifier User Manual  & troubleshooting 11The appliance is always in AUTO mode when it is switched on. You can identify active AUTO mode by the small LED that lights up above the output regulator.BONECO Humidifier & Air Purifier User Manual  & troubleshooting 12

2. To switch off the BONECO H300 while it is in AUTO mode, briefly press the output regulator once.

MANUAL OPERATION (CONTINUED)

MANUAL CONTROL

1. Briefly press the output regulator once to switch on the BONECO H300.

BONECO Humidifier & Air Purifier User Manual  & troubleshooting 13

The appliance is always in AUTO mode when it is switched on.
2. Adjust the output to your needs by setting the control knob to the desired level from 1 to 6. This action exits AUTO mode (AUTO LED is off).

BONECO Humidifier & Air Purifier User Manual  & troubleshooting 14

The selected performance level is indicated by the number of LEDs that light up above the output regulator.

3. Briefly press the control knob once to exit manual mode and to reactivate AUTO mode.
4. Briefly press the output regulator once more to switch off the BONECO H300.

BONECO Humidifier & Air Purifier User Manual  & troubleshooting 16 If you exit AUTO mode, the BONECO H300 will continue at the selected output level until the water tank is empty – regardless of what the current level of humidity is.

THE VARIOUS OPERATING MODES

HYBRID MODE (“HYBRID”)

The BONECO H300 combines two functions.

  • The AH300 POLLEN Filter cleanses breathing air of pollen, household dust, and fine particles.
  • The evaporator mat humidifies the room air.

You achieve the best results if the BONECO H300 humidifies and purifies the air at the same time. Nevertheless, it is possible to use just one of the two functions.

HUMIDIFICATION ONLY (“HUMIDIFIER”)

We recommend using the BONECO H300 with inserted AH300 POLLEN Filter even in winter because, aside from pollen, it also filters household dust out of the air. In order to operate the appliance without the AH300 POLLEN Filter, simply remove the filter from its holder.

BONECO Humidifier & Air Purifier User Manual  & troubleshooting 17

If you remove the AH300 POLLEN Filter, the maximum humidifier output rises from about 1.27 gal/day (200 g/h) to about 2.22 gal/day (350 g/h).

AH300 POLLEN FILTER ONLY (“PURIFIER”)

In summer, humidity is usually sufficient, but pollen gives people with allergies a difficult time. If you only want to use the purifying effect of the AH300 POLLEN Filter, switch the BONECO H300 to the “Purifier” operating mode using the BONECO app.

FRAGRANCE CONTAINER

FRAGRANCE CONTAINER

Commercially available fragrances and essential oils can be inserted into the fragrance container on the rear side.

BONECO Humidifier & Air Purifier User Manual  & troubleshooting 18 Never mix any additives into the water base itself, since doing so can decrease the performance of the BONECO H300 and even cause damage. This damage is not covered by the warranty.
BONECO Humidifier & Air Purifier User Manual  & troubleshooting 19 The fragrance container can be cleaned in the dishwasher. The temperature may not exceed 130 °F (50 °C).

USE

1. Press down on the fragrance container to take out the drawer.
