According to a thread I found on an Internet mailing list, the Dimplex
DAC3400 is actually the Toyotomi TID-1200 sold under the Dimplex
"...We have a number of even smaller units (3,400BTU/H) which also
facility of being used as de-humidifiers. Badged by Dimplex, model
DAC3400, they are made in Japan (of course!) by Toyotomi, model
and are described as: 'Compact moveable airconditioner suitable for
"spot cooling" of bedroom, small office, study. With automatic timer
from 0.5 to 6 hours. Separate de-humidifier. Indicator lamp for full
water tank. Oscillator in output vent with adjustable fan speeds.'"
for the full thread.
Some information on the Toyotomi TID-1200 can be found at...
The last link is for the Toyotomi U.S. site the only other country
outside of Japan where they appear to sell products under the Toyotomi
brand). I emailed them at firstname.lastname@example.org and received the
"We can mail you an instruction manual for the TID-1200 free of
charge. Please advise your mailing address.
TOYOTOMI U.S.A., INC."
I've emailed them in return noting that I was researching on your
behalf and that they could expect an email from you in the near

I'm sorry that you apparently weren't satisfied with my answer,
although it's unclear from either your original question, request for
clarification, or rating what your expectations were past "information
and operating instruction..." on the air conditioner. I provided you
both with sites for further information and an email address where you
can request the manual... or perhaps have one of your children do so.
As you note in your rating, this was your first use of Google Answers.
If I could make a suggestion, you would perhaps both better understand
and gain more satisfaction from using Google Answers in the future if
you reviewed the FAQ, especially the "Request for Answer
Clarification" procedure, at
You'll also note in the FAQ that Google Answers discourages the
posting of personal information to protect customers against unwanted
contacts such as spam. I've contacted the editors and asked them to
remove your "request for clarification" listing your email and
business address, and again recommend that you contact Toyotomi
yourself for a copy of the manual.
