Trouble with disposing of water. I have it hitched up with hose, but humidifier insists on filling the interior bucket. Help please

For the hose to work the unit must be elevated somehow so that the bucket will not fill. Or somehow the unit must be higher than the end of the hose. If you put the hose down an open floor drain that should suffice.

Danby Dehumidifier DDR7009REE leaking water, bucket not full

Hi there,
The unit may need cleaning. You can contact Danby customer service (1-800-263-2629) to get in contact with a technician.
There may be something clogging the passage to the bucket and the water is finding the path of least resistance.
As well, it is important to remember to clean the filter once a month.

Dehumidifier water is not collecting in the bucket but is falling out and is dumping on the floor

Check the collection bucket, to make sure it is installed tightly. If that checks out OK, the drain hole or tube that dumps water in to the bucket is clogged. To clear the clog, remove the bucket and look up under the top were the bucket rests. There will be a hose or a drain tube, Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers), that will fit into the hole or tube, carefully insert The Zip Tie and push it into the hole or tube. The Zip Tie will reach a bend in the tube that you need to gingerly, work it past the bend. Once the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie, slowly pull it back out, while rotating it. This will dislodge the clog. Once you have the Zip Tie almost removed, be prepared for some water to follow.

The above should solve your problem. Hope this info helped you.

Quick upright defrosting

Good day,
The aerosols help. But, hurry up with any type of refrigeration equipment is many times a quick way to disaster.
Go slow and thorough. A little lost food is far better than a messed up machine.
Patience is your friend here.

Occasionally the ice cube maker overfills causing the water to fall to the frezzer floor and leaking onto the ground, any suggestions on how to fix this?

Are you sure its the icemaker overflowing? if it is, you will have icycles on all the shelves and the food leading down to the floor of freezer. If you have NO icycles between bucket and floor, you have a clogged defrost drain problem.

If you do have icycles between bucket and floor, you will also have a big block of ice in your ice bucket. without personal inspection, i would advise replacing both the ice maker and the water valve(s)

SA9200 device manager problems

OK - you messed up somehow. Instead of downloading the Philips Device Manager from Philips' official site, you have downloaded malware. The only legitimate source for the Philips Device Manager is

Download the legitimate version and plug your mp3 player into the computer. The "Repair" button will then appear.
