Danby water tank

I have the danby ddr451 model. there is some sort of little wheel on a shaft which belongs inside the tank, however when i emptied the water, this device came out. i can't start my dehumidifier without this little piece being put back inside. if you could please help me find out where this belongs so i can get everything started again, that would be great. thanks

This part is the indicator to activate the interlock that stop your deshumidifier when water tank is full. It activate a switch on the top right of the placeholder of the tank. when the switch is relaesed it tells you either thank is not there or full and light a red signal. the center of the wheel should be back the pivot. if the pivot is broken, i don't suggest you to forced the switch activated unless you use the direct drain, or you might have water spilled over a full bucket!

Can't find where to empty the water


I need to be clear on what you said. you "can't find where to empty the water." Meaning you have removed the water collection bucket and don't know where to empty it? If that's the case, emptying it in a bath tub, is the easiest way.

However, if you meant, you don't know how to remove the water collection tank. It's on the front of the unit, below the air intake louvers. It simply slides/pulls out of the dehumidifier, when you pull on the indented handles on both sides of the bucket.

To assist you further, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual to a Danby model similar to yours. You can download and print it for future reference.

I hope this helped you.

Dehumidifier won't come on when i re insert the reservoir


there is a microswitch that is activated when you push the reservoir home, it sounds like the switch arm has either come adrift or needs reseating, or the nodule on the reservoir is not activating the switch, either worn or broken. hope this helps.

Danby DDR451 water tank


I had this to. Check to see if there is any packing tape just above the tank. The tape on mine was not tapping the tank shut; it had been there for a year (not interfering with anything), but i pulled it all out anyways, and the tank let go!

that's what worked for me... hope this helps

Does not turn on


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.
