Question about Danby DDR401 Dehumidifier
Is my humidity sensor circuit board toast? after cleaning my dehumidifier, and letting it dry. i plugged it in and it gave a reading of 20% humidity. when i blow on the humidity sensor, the humidity reading climbs, but quickly falls to 20% again. I know that the humidity is higher that 20% in my house (the windows are fogging up, and i have another humidity meter that is reading around 59%). any advices?
Hi, I just cleaned my dehumidifier and had the same problem as you. I used a spray water bottle and was not aware that the humidity sensor was being soaked. Very stupid of me!! Luckily I have two same dehumidifiers and used the other sensor to replace the one that I so stupidly ruined, and behold my machine worked again. Now I have to buy another sensor. To make sure we are talking about the same thing, my sensor is white,about 1 inch by 1/2 of an inch. It as 4 wires connected to it. To access it you remove the water tank, you will see 2 screws. Remove those, and pry the front panel loose. Be careful the top of the panel is held by two plastic hooks, they break easy. The sensor is located on the right side just above the radiator, under a produting oval lip which as foam around its rim. The wire colors are red black blue and yellow. Good luck Herman
