For Recommended Holding Temperatures,
see FL2000 guidelines on page 5.
When equipped with a high humidity module
your cabinet is designed to maintain the
temperature and moisture content of
prepared foods. The module has controls
for heat and humidity, a blower for air
circulation and a removable water bottle.
A POWER on/off switch is provided with a red
light to indicate when the unit is ON. Beside
the POWER switch are the TEMPERATURE
and HUMIDITY control knobs and yellow
lights to indicate when each element is on.
A seven foot, three wire, grounded cord is
supplied as part of the module.

unit may be operated without water if
humidity is not desired. If humidity is not
required, turn the humidity knob to the OFF
position. There is no need to remove any
water from the bottle. During extended
periods of operation without humidity, the
