For seasoned or in-use desktop humidors, turning on the humidifier and leaving the unit in the humidor will allow the humidity levels to stabilize after 24 hours.
Large and new humidors will need to be adequately seasoned using distilled water and a clean damp cloth. Run the damp cloth along the walls of the humidor to add humidity.
Install the humidifier and allow three days for the humidity levels to stabilize. If the desired humidity is not reached, re-season the humidor as needed.
Changing the crystal gel out yearly will help maintain the quality of your cigars. If the gel changes to a dark brown color, change out the gel earlier. Most of the air in your humidor filters through the system, so any contaminates will get trapped in the gel.
Crystal gel does not evaporate or dissolve. What has happened is the gel has dried and gotten stuck on the sides of the tank. They can be very hard to see when dry, especially when new.
Simply fill your tank as usual to the fill line; you should see the crystals rehydrate slowly.
For the DCH-12v1 models, water cartridges last for three to four refills or once a year to keep the quality at its best.
The water cartridge should not need to be replaced for all other models. Cleaning and changing the crystal gels as needed will work. See “How often should I check and change the gel”(above) for more information
Ensure the flat power plug is plugged into the “DC 12V” power port on the side of the humidifier.
Do not plug the black power adapter into the circular “Ext Fan” port!
Please make sure that the 2 grey silicon plugs are removed from the tank. These plugs are to keep the crystal gel from falling out of the tank during shipping.
Please ensure to fill the water under the water line on the cartridge so that air can pass through the water cartridge.
DCH-60 ~ DCH-67
Yes, the control unit can be stored on the outside of your humidor. The flat cable can be passed through the door crack without affecting your humidor's seal.
