I have a delongji DEM 10 dehumidifier and it keeps switching to pause, I have cleaned filter switched off for a while but it still won't come on

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Unless you are licensed and qualified professional, do not try to repair a dehumidifier by yourself. If your unit is running constantly yet there is no water in the tank, try lowering the temperature control. If the problem persists, there may be a problem within the refrigeration system. You may need to pull the filter and clean it. Also try wiping off the unit itself. When the water tank is full, the unit will shut off and will not run until the tank is emptied. The dehumidifier shuts off by a safety switch in the back of the unit. If the switch is not working properly, you may try manually pressing the button or slightly bending the switch.
    Motor If the fan motor is damaged or will not work, no cool air will be coming out of the dehumidifier. The unit, however, may still run. You may need to replace the motor. If the coils in the back of the dehumidifier constantly freeze, try turning off the unit for an hour or re-locating the unit to a higher position to allow the room to heat up. If your water tank is constantly full and you are emptying it on a daily basis, you may have a water leak somewhere in the room with the dehumidifier.

    I have a 1999 Chevy Malibu LS. Occasionally when I turn the key to the off position the engine will shut down but the ignition switch appears to be in the acc. mode what causes this?

    key switch could be time with the car running,keep pressure on key as if you were trying to pull it out and turn to the off position slowly, this will let you know if it is going past the lock position when you are shutting car off.The keys should come out just as you come to the off position, if they come out any earlier, the switch is bad.

    I have a 460 husqvarna Rancher and the shut off switch does not work? What could it be?

    There are two wires to the red rocker switch, one is from the ignition unit the other is an earth return, the wire from the unit slots into the side of the red plastic switch it is moulded to take the terminal, the other wire connects to a chrome strip, this strip is the earth return, as the red switch is placed in the stop position it touches the wire from the unit to the earth strip and stops the engine, make sure the wire has not come adrift from the side of the switch, if not check both wires down to the unit with a continuity tester.
