    I have the same problem with the HB30. Plug it in, it works. Unplug it, it's off. The knob from OFF then 1-9 does not work.

it should be in the same area where you pull the pan out to dump. There should be a hose hook up inside the space where the drain box is.

There are power surges every few minutes that last for a few seconds. Other lights on the same circuit dim. This is really a Hampton Bay HB40 which I understand is the same unit. What can I do?


it sounds like the compressor is trying to start. if it hums and clicks then either the compressor relay or the compressor is bad. find the compressor and tap on the relay cover with the end of a screw driver. if it starts then change the relay

My Hampton Bay HB30 dehumidifier is still running, but no longer produces any water. The fan is running, you can feel the air moving. In addition, it will not turn off with the switch.


The filter and coils might be clogged with dirt. Turn of the unit and unplug it. Look at the filter and coils to see if they need cleaning.

Dehumidifier tripping the breaker


be very careful - with the unit unplugged - try shorting the capacitor with an insulated screwdriver. if you get a healthy spark - the cap is probably ok. if you don't replace the cap. the cap is used in the motor's start winding.
