Question about Danby Premiere DDR5009REE 50 Pint Capacity Dehumidifier with 2 Fan Speeds, Electronic Controls, Adjustable Humidity Settings, Direct Drain Feature and 3,000 sq. ft. Coverage Area
The compressor stopped working. After some fiddling around, I discovered that the compressor will work only by the following method: 1. Press on/off button to turn off dehumidifier then unplug it from the electrical outlet. 2. Plug the dehumidifier into the electrical outlet, then press the on/off button to turn the machine on. 3. Keep pressing the down arrow to set the relative humidity lower until the compressor comes on. This is the only way I can get the Compressor to come on. If I just press the button to turn the machine off and then on, the compressor never comes on. I tried it for 12 hours and NO WATER and the compressor never came on. Then, when I press the on/off button to turn the machine off, then unplug it, then plug it in again, then press the on/off button to turn it on, then set the humidity until the compressor is activated. However, after these actions, the compressor runs for less than a minute and then it shuts off, and only the fans continues to run. Can someone explain why this is happening and how it can be fixed? Thank you.
If your machine is equipped with a humidistat it could be faulty and not sensing the humidity level accurately.
