Question about Dehumidifiers

Open Question

I need instructions for a Micromark MM9088 dehumidifier

I think the switch which detects when the bucket is full may have been damaged when the bucket was inserted the wrong way round.

SOURCE: Dehumidifier Error?

Your bucket full switch may be defective. If you are capable, bypass it since you are draining to another place other than the bucket.

SOURCE: GE dehumidifier light says bucket is full but it isn't

Try feeling both sides of the outside of the bucket and make sure the bucket is flush with the dehumidifier. If one side is sticking out more than the other it may notbe engaged correctly which will cause a full bucket notification. If everything checks out ok there try takng the bucket out and push in on the button that the lever from the bucket engages on at the dehumidifier. If the light turns off after you push on the red button that means the bucket is not engaging correctly. If the red light stays on and it doesnt make a difference he button sensor may be defective. If you found this solution helpful please rate it.

Same problem with Goldstar model DH404EY7 -- stop code 01 on startup, bucket full light blinks (drains to floor).

Replaced the main controller board to fix it.

For my model dehumidifer the part # is 6871A20888A, and cost $77.44 (not counting shipping) from Appliance Factory Parts. The Appliance Factory Parts web site also provides parts breakdown (exploded parts diagram) diagrams and service manuals in PDF form.

Flashing light is on(power on/off pad)

red lights on dehumidifiers almost always indicate a full water catch bucket , this does not allways mean it's actually full of water , the machine thinks it is , some thing has gone ary with the level sensor in bucket , these most times are a simple float switch, that can get knocked out of position when one is emptying the bucket , also this same float switch also allows machine to know there's a bucket in place to catch water , sometimes bucket is not in correct place to catch water so machine wont start

When full bucket light comes on water is emptied and bucket put back in position. Fan will start and then the full bucket light comes back on beeps and shuts off.

You have to be sure bucket is replaced exactly where it should go or the bucket will hold the switch in, thinking it is full. If you have a floor drain close by,remove the bucket and set the dehumidifier over or next to drain so water will go down it,then you don't worry about bucket getting full.If it doesn't run with bucket off, maybe defective switch. unhook wires to the bucket switch and hook or tape together,if dehumidifier runs then switch is bad. UNPLUG FROM OUTLET BEFORE DOING THIS. IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND ELECTRICITY GET QUALIFIED HELP!!

Bucket full light on

I assume you mean it won't run and the bucket full light is on even when the bucket is not full. If this is your problem, I have it too. After hours of tearing my hair I *think* I know what the problem is. Playing with the "bucket full" microswitch I temporarily made the problem better.. but it went back to as bad as it was originally. I think it is a FAULTY BUCKET FULL MICROSWITCH. I use a hose anyway so I have no need for such a switch. Therefore, I will tear out the switch and short the leads together (or keep them isolated--- whichever corresponds to "not full"). I have a strong intuition this will do it. When I have time, I'll get it done and post the result, but you might want to try in the meantime and say what result was. Good luck.

Unit collects water but periodically continues running despite full bucket which is flush in unit, what could be causing this it doesn't happen everytime.

there is a floater switch on the machine over the bucket (and sometimes in it). the floater tells the machine that the bucket is full. if the floater is stuck, the machine will assume that the bucket is not yet full, and will continue to run. check that floater switch with the bucket out. you may need to press in the bucket switch so the machine thinks the bucket is in. then lift the floater and see if it stops running. if not, the switch is bad.
