The error code says bucket is full but it is empty. Have unplugged, plugged back in - same message. It's only two years old. Anyone else have this problem - or know of a solution? Thanks

The sensor is probably off track. It is a small float that sits in the back of the unit near the top of the bucket. It pivots when the water reaches it to activate the switch. It can be knocked out of place when moving the bucket in or out. Just re-seat it and make sure it can rock back and forth normally..

The float switch will not shut off so the container over flows. I have been trying to replace the CHERRY Snap Action Switch, P/N KWJE0001, but can't find any one to sell me just one switch. Can...

I have the exact same problem. Does anyone know where to buy a replacement KWJE 0001 switch? It's crazy to throw away a $200 humidifier because of a broken $2 switch!

The dehumidifier doesn't collect any water.

There are several things that can cause the problem:

1. The humidity extraction level is set to high. Lower it to 35%

2.The air intake filter is dirty and/or clogged. Remove the filter and clean it.

3. The cooling coils on the dehumidifier need cleaning.

4. Not enough clear air space all around the unit. Maintain at least a minimum of 12" air space all around the unit, while in operation.

5. The ambient air temperature at floor level is between 40 & 60 degrees F. This is particularly true, in basement applications. Raise the unit up off the floor onto something sturdy, that can maintain the weight (including a full bucket of water) and the vibration.

The above 5 things are the most frequent causes of your problem. Start your troubleshooting with these.

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

My dehumidifier ices up any suggestions thanks evan

Evan, a dirty or clogged air intake filter can cause it to freeze, as well as obstructed air flow around the unit. Maintain a minimum or 12" clear air space all around the dehumidifier. Also operating the unit in temperatures below 40 degree (F), will also cause the coils to freeze. In addition, low refrigerant in the compressor can cause the coils to freeze. In which case, recharging the gas should solve the problem, And finally, worse case scenario is that the defrost cycle sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.

If you find you need parts and/or service and don't want to tackle it yourself, go to the Danby link below and enter your Zip Code.

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

My Frigidaire dehumidifier model FDL70S1has an error code "A5" My coils keep freezing up as well with heavy ice. It has worked fine in the same spot in the basement for two years until last week....

All most all dehumidifiers have a defrost cycle to take care of this problem. However, yours is either not working or the air intake filter is clogged, which makes the unit strain to keep up. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit, before attempting to remove the filter. Allow the unit to thaw while it's unplugged. Once it's completely thawed, plug the unit back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set your controls as you normally do. Within in an hour or two, you will know if this solved the problem. Also, keep in mind, dehumidifiers are designed only to work in temperatures above 41 degrees. If it's below that where you have the unit, that will cause it to freeze up.

With all that said, what you're seeing as the Error Code is in fact, AS (the 'S' looks a lot like a 5 on the LED screen) It indicates a Sensor Failure. In your case, it's more than likely the Defrost Cycle Sensor. The Owners Manual says "Contact your local Authorized Frigidaire Service Center, if this happens. I'm hoping that cleaning the filter (if needed) and allowing the unit to reset itself (while it's OFF & Unplugged) will solve the problem. But, it may only be a band aide fix.

Hope this helped you.

Where, in the UK, can I obtain Amcor replacement parts?

the thermal break is there for a reason, the motor has overheated, if this was due to a towel or other item covering the unit great remove the the obstruction and replace the thermal break. however the major cause is that the bearings have dried up on the motor and it has started to seize, which means replacement.

P1 and P2 error codes

Danby's Consumer Help Line (1-800-263-2629) is always busy. So, I called their General number: 419-425-8627. The receptionist transferred my call to their Service dept. My call was answered in 2 minutes.

The Service Rep. described the following code for my dehumidifier model (DDR657EE):
P1 = Defrosting: the unit will go into Defrost mode periodically to ensure that the parts are working at the right operating temperature. It should be in Defrost (P1) mode for only a brief period of time. If the unit is in Defrost (P1) mode continuously for a couple of hours (or more), then you should call Danby Service for further assistance.

He had no documentation of a P2 code for my model.

He also described other General Codes (applicable to most Dehumidifier/Humidifier models):
E1 = Not enough water
E2 = Not draining
E3 = Water temperature too cool
E4 = Overflow Switch activated
E6 / E7 = Problem with Temperature Sensor

I hope that helps.
