Question about Heating & Cooling

My deLonghi dehumidifier no longer dehumidifies. The device appears to be functioning OK but is not taking a drop of moisture into the tank. Previously, it filled in about 48 hours.

Hi, Soorry for the delay in the respones but I was stuck in a factory job the last few days.
When this happens usuall either the compressor is not running or the unit is packed with dirt. Can you tell me if you hear the compressor kicking on? I will look up this model and cover all the bases for you. The sysytem is slow on resposnes right now but I will keep on top of this with you till se get it going. Alsocheck the tank for a pluggage in the drain tube.

    Can I ask where you live and what the temerature is in your house? These are designed to work in temps above 65 degrees and if lower they are not efficiant. What is the humidity in your area, if there isnot suffeciant moisture in the aire you will not get any water in the bucket or drain.

Hi I have a dem 10 my problem is when it is switched on the fan runs for a few minutes then it turns off if I turn the knob down until I hear it click off and turn the knob ... The room temperature has not altered so it cannot have stopped due to low temperature. .... If you exchange the capacitor the dehumidifier will probably work.

I need the intruction manual for Delonghi dehumidifier model #DE40P.


Here is a link to the Owner's Manual, you're looking for. You can download and print the manual for future reference. Take good care of your model, perform routine maintenance, as required. As it no longer in manufacture. It has been replaced with a 45 pint unit. However, some parts your model are still available, if needed.

A dehumidifier does not need water in the tank.It takes humidity out of the air and the moisture goes into the bucket. A humidifier has to have water in the tank.Note ,a humidifier puts moisture in the air, and a dehumidifier takes the moisture takes moisture out of the air.

I had a similar problem with the pump not working and the water flowing into the main drainage bucket instead. I had to disassemble the housing...not an easy project to reassemble...and found that the pump has its own smaller drainage tank with a float device, a pump pre-filter, the actual pump, then of course, more drainage tubes. The entire pump drainage system of components needed cleaned of accumulated, mucoid, slime! I cleaned the channel in which water flows into the pump's tank...located on the screen filter side of the dehumidifier. Then I moved to the other side of the dehumidifier and cleaned-out the entire pump drainage tank. Note that the pump's drainage tank only empties about 1/2 inch of water each time the pump activates. Thus, there is always alot of water in the pump's drainage tank. Thus, alot of time for slime to accumulate. Next, I cleaned off the float mechanism. I then cleaned-out the pump's pre-filter. Cleaning out the pump's pre-filter was paramount to the pump functioning properly and quietly! I checked that my pump was properly installed and NOT rubbing against its mounting so that it operated quietly. I added fresh water to the pump's tank several times to insure that the pump was working properly and that all slime was eliminated. Finally, I reassembled the housing...not an easy task! My pump now functions like new. All this work had to be done to insure proper function of the dehumidifier's pump system. My dehumidifier is only 11 months old. It is still covered by the one year warranty, but it is too expensive to ship the entire unit, as Delonghi requires you to do at your expense for them to fix it under warranty. You can be assured that I will check for future slime build-up to keep my dehumidifier functioning properly. The dehumidifier works great, it's just that it's high maintenance.
