I have attached a hose and set to "CO" for continuous. The bucket still fills up. What else do I need to do?


You will need to unclog the internal drain tubing to the hose connection. To accomplish this, do the following:

Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hose connection hole & tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reconnect the hose to the unit, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor the hose end for water flow. It may take 10 to 15 minutes for it to start flowing. So be patient.

NOTE: If you don't have a Zip Tie, you may use something similar ( i.e.a long pipe cleaner), but NO wire coat hangers
.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My dehumidifier is leaking from the bottom. Was working fine. Bucket is only collecting about an inch of water. any suggestions


The problem is due to clogged tubing inside the unit. To solve the problem, do the following:

Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then slowly pull the Zip Tie back out while rotating (twisting) it. This will breakup any clogs. As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared, as some water may follow. Reinstall the bucket, plug the unit in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the humidity extraction level to 35% or Maximum if you have a manually controlled unit. Allow the unit to run, while you monitor it for any leakage.

The water will not drain into the storage tank, and insists on leaking out the back. How can I get it to drain into the tank?


The drain tube and or hole that is supposed to drain water into the bucket is clogged. To solve this problem, do the following:

First, turn the Unit OFF & Unplug it.
Remove the water collection bucket and look up inside the bucket holder cavity. You will see either a drain hole or small tubing that drains the water into the bucket. Using an appropriately sized, 18" long, plastic Zip Tie, carefully insert the tip of Zip Tie into the hole or tubing. Continue to push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing.

Water misses the bucket and runs out on floor.


The problem you're having is a result of a clogged drain tube.

Water on floor after dehumidifier runs for about one half hour either directly drained to sump pump hole or bucket.

Leaking..no holes in bucket... sit correctly


From what you have described, it sounds like the tubing that drains water into the bucket is clogged.
To solve the problem, do the following:

1. Turn the Master On/OFF Switch to OFF & Unplug the unit.

2. Remove the bucket from it's holder. At the top of the bucket cavity, you should see a hole or
tubing that drains the water into the bucket.

3. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers, though) that is the
appropriately sized to fit into the hole or tubing. Carefully insert the Zip Tie and continue to
push it in until you reach a bend in the tubing. You must gingerly work the Zip Tie past this bend,
until the Zip Tie either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie.

4. Slowly start pulling it back out while rotating it (twisting it). This will break up any clogs. Once
you start nearing the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

Following the steps above, should solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I have an LG 45Ely6, the tank was reinstalled properly but it continues to leak. Can you help?


More than likely, the water drain tubing inside the unit is clogged& the water is not going into the bucket as it should. To solve this, do the following.

1. Turn the Master ON/OFF to OFF & Unplug the unit.
2. Remove the bucket and look up inside the bucket holder. You will see a tube or a hole that drains
the water into the bucket.
3. Using an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar (NO wire coat hangers though) that is
appropriately sized to fit into the hole or tubing. Carefully insert the Zip Tie, until you reach a
bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend, until the Zip Tie either
bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. While rotating (twisting) the Zip Tie, slowly remove it.
As you reach the inserted end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow.

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

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.

I suspect drain hole clogged. How do I remove the front to access and to clean the coils?


Actually, you will need to remove the back panel of the unit (there are 6-screws) to access the coils.

As far as the drain hole being clogged ... Use an 28" long plastic Zip Tie, sized to fit into the drain hole. If you don't have a Zip Tie, use something similar, bur NO wire coat hangers. Push the Zip Tie into the drain hole and carefully work it in. You will reach a bend in the tubing, but you will have to gingerly work past this 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. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie coming out, be prepared for some water to follow.

Hope this helped you solve both problems.
