Hello Ethan, thanks for your submission!
Based off what you have described your Frigidaire dehumidifier is displaying 8.78 after being plugged in. This could be an internal issue with a sensor or panel. You may need to contact your manufacturer for additional assistance. Good luck! -Matt
if says full and leaking on floor. it is full, you say empty, why make sure that it is empty, sensor in container to check level, so if it is empty, sensor fault, but leaking on floor, would indicate sensor ok, and container full
Dehumidifier? Sounds like a warning of some sort. A humidifier does a simple job, removing moisture from the air. If yours is not set up to drain, it could have a full holding tank. Empty it out and give it a rinse and it should be good. Drop a couple drops of chlorine bleach in it to keep down the mold growth.
If it isn't a full tank, it could be an air filter that needs cleaning or replacing. Often these things are programmed in and needs to be cleared. Clean and or replace any and all air filters and look for a reset button.
usually happens when either the Float Valve in the bucket is stuck in
the UP position (if yours is so equipped. Jiggle it to get it to return
to the DOWN position.
If you humidifier's bucket is not so
equipped. It's usually an indication that the bucket was not
reinstalled properly, after it was removed. To check and correct this,
turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit. Remove the
bucket and reinsert it, making sure that it fits "squarely" in the
bucket holder from Top to Bottom. Once installed, make sure the bottom
of the bucket is not tilted down in any way. Plug the unit back in and
turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. If it was reinstalled correctly,
the bucket full light should have gone off and the unit will run as it
should, if the humidity extraction level is set low enough.
Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem.
Actually, the fan shouldn't be working if the water bucket is not installed properly. So, I believe it's more of a case of the electronic controls need to be reset.
To accomplish this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes. After the time as elapsed, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The Bucket Full light should not, now be ON. And the unit can function as it should, after you reset the controls for maximum humidity extraction (32 - 35%).
Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
It should resart on its own after putting the empty bucket back in. The beep is to let you know that the bucket full and it shuts off the humidifier until the bucket is emptied and put back into the proper position.
Offhand, two possibilities: 1. erroneous sensor reading(s) causing system to respond likewise erroneously; and/or 2. firmware/software glitch.
Initially, I would suggest a full hard reset, that is unplug from the mains for an hour or so. This would normally revert the unit back to factory default (assuming no hardware problem). Additionally, you may want to check the sensor(s) like the a bucket full sensor often would be a float switch of some kind.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
