We don't have a manual, it's a new unit but never been used. We can't figure out what all the control panel buttons mean. Help please.


if its a newly mfg unit then yes the fans gonna run all the time , that's done to increase efficiency , if you hold down on arrows then you should be able to adjust the rooms humidity level, the default screen is the actual rooms humidity level , if you hold down mode button , this will cycle thru some timer modes that ind on the display

it should turn itself off when bucket is full , this even stops that fan from running most times

What are the codes. i get co as a code. itruns but will not remove the humidity


CO just means it is in continuous mode, that is not a fault. It may take quite a few days to settle the humidity.
The codes are AS or ES which indicate sensor faults

Goes on.... humidity % registers 70 but in just a minute or 2 it begis to decline and ends up at Lo which then wont pull water from the air. I know it is humid, some sensor must be getting fouled up.


70% is not what the dehumidifier is removing. It's what it is maintaining. Which is extremely high humidity. To lower the humidity level in the house lower it to 35%. That will remove a large amount of humidity over a fairly short (4 hours) period of time. If you have an analog unit (no LED Screen) set the humidity extraction knob on Maximum, which is 35%.

Keep in mind, dehumidifiers work the opposite of what you think.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa..

What do the control knob numbers mean. Does the lower the number mean less humidity?


If you have an analog unit the humidity extraction knob should be turned to Maximum.

If you have an LED screen, the arrow down button is what determines the amount of humidity to be removed and maintained. In this case, the lower the number does mean less humidity.

On an analog unit, it's the higher numbers that determine the lower humidity levels.

I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a DDR7009EE and the fan runs continuously even when the humidity in the room is below the setting on the machine. Shouldn't the fan stop when the desired humidity is reached?


Lyle, your particular model is designed for the fan to function constantly. However, the fan running doesn't mean the compressor is always running. The reason the unit was designed this way, is for the air to be continually moving, and when the humidity sensor picks up a rise in the humidity level (above where you have it set) the compressor will turn ON and extract that humidity.

Your unit is working as it should. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The humidity reading on the setting screen reads "Lo". What does that mean?


Hi,

That just means that the humidity level is lower then 35% the lowest setting on the dehumidifier...

It will not run when showing that...

I have purchaced two maytag dehumidifiers M7DH45B2A either one works. I cleaned inside and out blew out the coils with air. Motor runs but will not take out the humidity.


You may have the humidity level set to high. Keep in mind, the higher the number on your LED screen, (if your units have LED display) the more humidity remains in the house. Lowering the numbers on the screen (to 45%), should have a better affect.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know.

The dehumidifier cuts off when it is set on 70% as soon as the compressor cuts on. i can leave it on lo and it runs.


If you're setting the humidity level on 70 % , that means you want to leave the relative humidity in the house at 70%. That's why the dehumidifier is cutting off. Your house is already at 70% humidity or higher. If you want to remove humidity, set the level lower. If your trying to make it cooler in the house or remove a lot of moisture, set it a 35 to 45%.

Hope this helped solve your problem.

Control panel explanation


80% means the humidity will be at 80%

You probably want a setting of 50 or 60% if you are trying to keep a damp area dry.

When it is 20 degrees outside, it will probably by below 50% humidity inside so you need more humidity, not running a DEhumidifier.

CONT is for continous running - you probably don't need that setting
