SOURCE: flashing green light stays on,

I believe the unit needs to me reset to the manufacturer's default settings. To do this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from the outlet for 10 - 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back into the wall outlet and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The green light will blink until you change the humidity setting to below what the humidity level is in your home. If you set it higher, it will not turn ON or will turn ON only for a couple of minutes.

Also, check the position of the water collection bucket, to make sure that it's installed properly and has triggered the safety device.

To help you more, I have included a link to your Owners Manual that you can download and print for future reference, if you have misplaced yours. Take good care of your unit and perform routine maintenance regularly. As Danby has discontinued (retired) your model humidifier.

As I tell most folks who complain about the problem you're having

There are 5 basic, but solvable reason for what you described. Please pay particular attention to numbers 1 & 2.

1. The humidity extraction level is set to HIGH. Lower it to 32-35%.

2. Air intake filter is dirty or clogged. Turn unit OFF, & Unplug the
Unit, before removing to inspect & clean it, if necessary. If washed,
allow filter to completely dry before reinstalling. DO NOT operate
the unit without the filter. To remove the filter on your model it will either have a pullout tab on
the right side of the unit, behind the louvers on the front. Or remove the bucket and the filter
frame will be just on the inside top of the opening behind the front louvers.

3. Obstructed air flow. Maintain a minimum of 12 to 18" of clear air
space around the entire unit.

4. Cooling coils are dirty and need to be cleaned. Use warm water & dish washing liquid to clean
the coils. Rinse and wipe dry. Apply a light coating of WD40 to the coils.

5. Ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 - 60 degrees.
dehumidifiers do not work well between those temperatures
(Unless, you have a Low Temp Unit). This applies mainly to
where the air temperature at floor level is colder than at shoulder
in basement applications level. Raising the unit up off the floor,
onto a sturdy table, counter top, etc, that can handle the weight
of the unit, plus a full tank of water, will usually resolve this
problem.

If none of the above solves the problem, it may be a case of the compressor needs to be recharged with refrigerant gas or that the humidity condenser sensor has failed. These things usually occur in units that are 5 years old or older. It's rare in a unit younger than that. But, it can happen.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks

Hi my Danby DDR4588EE Dehumidifier's buttons aren't working


Hi! I'm assuming that the unit is plugged in and the outlet the unit is plugged into is working (if not, is there a tripped circuit breaker, in your home's circuit breaker panel?). Also, that you have turned ON The Master ON/OFF Switch and the Water Collection Bucket is installed properly and the Float Valve inside the bucket is in the Down position

If you answered NO to any of the above, turn the the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before checking those things first. Because, 9 times out of 10, one of thee above is the culprit.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Actually, the fan shouldn't be working if the water bucket is not installed properly. So, I believe it's more of a case of the electronic controls need to be reset.

To accomplish this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes.
After the time as elapsed, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The Bucket Full light should not, now be ON. And the unit can function as it should, after you reset the controls for maximum humidity extraction (32 - 35%).

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

E1 display humidied is at 98% flashing blue light


That's indicating the the humidity level you have it set on is, set to high to remove humidity in the air. Turn the unit OFF and unplug it from the wall. Remove the water collection bucket and empty is if there's any water in it. Wait 10 minutes and remove the air intake filter and clean it, if necessary. Then, plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Lower the humidity extraction level to 32 - 35%. The unit should start up and operate as it should.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

The bucket full light won't go out and the


Try resetting the bucket, making sure that it is set properly and triggers the safety lever/switch. If that doesn't solve the problem. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, unplug the unit from the wall outlet and wait 12-15 minutes. Plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. If the bucket is installed properly, the unit should revert back to the original factory settings.

Hope this helps solve the problem.

Danby dehumidifier keeps signalling that it is full when the bucket is empty. Have wiped with towels, turned off then on etc. to no avail. can sensors be a problem how do you replace them?Is it something...


The water collection bucket may not be activating the safety trigger, when it's put back in place. Check that first. If that checks out OK, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 12-15 minutes. Then plug the unit back in and Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Hopefully, during that 12-15 minute timeout, the unit reset itself and you set the controls as you normally do.

Yes, the safety trigger sensor can be replaced if parts for that unit are still available. But, sometimes, it's more trouble than it's worth. Especially, if the unit has a few years on it.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know.
