Try first unplugging power cable for ten miutes or so, if it does not work, check if the bucket is full.
It has a sensor inside that can also be faulty.

    Try also removing the drawer and putting it back in place after you unplug and plug back the power.

I plug it up display shows 8.8. and goes blank. Power light on top and side is green ON. Full bucket light and alarm works, timer button works, nothing else works.


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

Dehumidifiers bucket empty but says full water leaking on floor


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.

Good luck.

The light indicating that "bucket


This 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.

Has been running fine. my daughter emptied it yesterday morning and didn't put the catch container back in the machine properly and a red light (small round) on top left of machine was on when I went...


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.

New Delonghi Dehumidifier,5 gal:When units beeps that bucket is full,what are exact steps to do 1st:empty bucket, then press what button to restart?or does it restart on its own?


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.

Humidifier says "bucket full", not using bucket have hose attached


Hi,

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.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
