    It is running continuously and working well but I'm wondering if the humidity sensor for "very dry" setting is set to reach a certain humidity percent?

If the humidity level is at or lower than 30%, the unit won't turn ON, until the reaches 35 - 40%. It's rare for the sensors to go bad. Just keep in mind, the dehumidifier is reading the humidity near the floor, not up at say, chest level. Humidity levels change every season, so this really would not be that unusual. Make sure that your clean the air intake filter regularly. Cleaning and wiping down the coolant coils would be a good idea, too..

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

I cant change humidity levels

Hi Ra Ma,
After you have set the desired humidity, the readout will display the actual room humidity. It has a built in hygrometer which will be on the display while it is running.
You change it and it shows the actual levels.

See page 5 on manual.

I have always set my M7DH45B2A at 60 percent (it's in the basement). Lately it runs all the time and the humidity does not go below 65 percent. It seems "stuck" there even if I lower my...

There are 5 basic, but solvable reasons 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.

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 - 65 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 level
in basement applications. 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

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.

I hope the above helped you. Please let me know and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have my Edison 40 running at the highest setting (lowest humidity) and it isn't lowering my humidity. The hose to my floor drain emits only a tiny drop once in a while. Is there something for me to...

Ronald, first,check the air in take filter for dirt and/or clogs. Also check your drain hose for a blockage, as well as the hose connection on the unit. In addition, if the cooling coils are dirty, this will cause the unit to strain to keep up. You should be able to access them, after you remove the air intake filter. Clean them with mild soap and warm water. Rinse and thoroughly dry them, before applying a very light coat of WD40. CAUTION: BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY SERVICE ON THE UNIT, TURN THE MASTER ON/OFF SWITCH TO OFF AND UNPLUG THE UNIT.

I assume you have one of the older Edison 40 Dehumidifiers, that doesn't have an LED readout. And this is where it can sometimes get confusing, when setting the humidity extraction level. Maximum doesn't always indicate the maximum extraction level. And in your case, I believe if you set it on Minimum, you would get better results. Always allow a minimum of 12" clear air space all around the unit, while in operation.

If, after you troubleshoot the above things and want to do a good in home test of the unit. Move the unit to the bathroom, plug it it in, turn it ON and set it for Minimum. Turn the shower ON hot enough to generate steam. Do Not turn the bathroom exhaust fan ON. Close any window(s) that may be open. As you exit the bathroom, close the door. Wait 15 - 20 minutes before returning to the bathroom. Then turn the shower OFF and allow the dehumidifier to run additional 5 minutes. Turn the unit OFF and check the bucket for signs of water. If you find some, the unit is working as it should.

If you find n water in the bucket. The unit's compressor probably needs a recharge of refrigerant gas.As the level may be low.

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

If you just plugged it in and started it up, you may have failed to set the humidity extraction level. Which is different from the factory settings. If you want to remove great deal of humidity, lower the setting to 35%. Keep in mind, the lower the setting the more humidity/moisture will be removed from the household air. The higher the setting less will be removed.

As far as the unit beiing warm is concerned ... Be sure to maintain at least a minimum of 12" clear air space all around the unit while in operation. Do not operate the dehumidifier in direct sun light.

Also, make sure all the packing material has been removed from the interior of the unit. This will block the airflow and cause the unit to overheat. If it does overheat, it should shutoff automatically. But, don't confuse that with normal automatic shutoff (i.e water collection bucket full, timed cycle has ended, no more humidity to remove from the air, etc.)

When all else fails, consult the owner's Manual.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

Well to knowledge the problem 40 percent is dry. means your basement is great. humidity should be 30/50 percent 50 grows mold. also if it runs for a min the auot shut off is activating. check this first.

You didn't say what humidity range you have it set for, or how damp of an area it is dehumidifying. The one in my basement also never shuts off and we have it set for the lowest humidity (meaning we don't want any down there). If you think it should be shutting off you might want to get another Humidistat they are $33.05 at this link,

Old post, but in case someone stumbles in here like i did, I need to point out that if an A/C needs to be recharged, then there has to be a leak somewhere, there is no use on recharging unless you find the place where is leaking.
