    I have a 45 Pint Dehumidifier, Has worked very well for quite a while, now, after emptying the tank, it won't start up. Fan comes on and then shuts off as if full. Sometimes if you remove and replace the tank, several times , it may stay on. not sure if it is a bad sensor, or switch. Once it is running it will shut off when full. Filters are clean.

    Red button inside the unit I had to put tape on it to hold it down in order for the unit to run. Runs like 4 or 5 min. then cuts off. Over and over.

    Same thing with me. I bought the unit. Ran over night. emptied out the bucket and ....the compressor would not turn back on. The fan does run however.



    took it back and got a new one.



    Plugged that one in and worked for one bucket. Then the compressor would not come back on.



    I have a 30 yo dehumidifier that works fine in the same outlet.

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.

Can I leave a dehumidifier in an unheated cottage for the winter? Where will my answer appear?


you can leave it turned off emptied in the unheated cottage. but i would not reccomend letting it run or stay with water in the tank. as water expand when it freezes. and will break the tank. also . dehumidifiers do nothing in freezing condition other than waste energy. so empty the tank and store it for the winter.

and your answer will appear right here :)

Hi I have problems with my mitsubishi dehumidifier Oasis Elite MJ-E-142NX-A1 The water tank full light stays on even though the tank is empty. I have emptied the water and replaced the container care


Sounds like your float is stuck in the full position, or the sensor that shows full is stuck on full.
If tank is empty but shows full, problem lies where full signal is coming from.

How do I empty the water tray on a maytag dehumidifier


Put machine on pause, On the front of your machine you'll see a seam that is the separation of the tank, gently put your hands on the side of the machine and you'll see and feel indentations of where you have to gently pull forward until you feel the tank coming off, make sure when you pull it is with equal pressure and you can use your thumbs to hold the machine from rolling when you take the tank off. ( it is a two handed operation), get ready for the tank coming out because depending on the amount of water in it, it may be heavy.
If your still stumped, I guess I can video it being done?? Good luck and let me know how it goes!

Says bucket full and it is empty


There is a float switch somewhere to measure the level of water in the bucket. That switch is out of position or broken. This can happen if you are not careful removing and re-installing the bucket. Look at the area around the bucket and you should be able to find and fix the switch. Make sure the power is off when you are doing this.

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.

Just bought, brand new. where to put water in? unit will not turn on.


If you bought a dehumidifier, you will not need to put water in it. A dehumidifier removes water. A humidifier add moisture to the air, and you need to add water to this. Was your dehumidifier running before and then it stopped? If so, it will have a tank on the bottom that will have water in it that needs to be emptied out. Let me know if this is your problem.

Hi

The tank may be full. Your dehumidifier has a safety device that turns off the dehumidifier when the water tank is full. Usually the tank itself either presses against a switch or there's a device connected to the tank that triggers a switch when the tank is in place and full.


If you've emptied the tank and the unit doesn't run, inspect the place where the tank rests to see if there's a switch or mechanism that's not being activated. You may be able to turn it on with a simple flick of your finger.

Take care.
