Question about Danby DDR451 Dehumidifier
I turned off the machine, emptied out the water, put the tank back in and turned the machine on. Nothing happened accept the power light flashes. I unplugged it and let it sit overnight but still nothing happens
All dehumidifiers have an interlock to prevent them from running when the tank is out. This is to avoid a mess with not tank for the water to collect in. I would say that your interlock switch is in a position which is telling the machine that there is no tank in the unit. Take the tank back out and look into the space with a flashlight to find the switch. It could be on the bottom or the top. Your operation manual might be helpful in locating the switch. Once you find the switch check it for operation. It should move or depress when the tank is put in. It probably is jammed and you will have to determine whether it can be fixed or you may need to replace it. If it moves freely then it is probably defective and will need to be replaced. Good luck.
