Question about Danby DDR4588EE Dehumidifier
Gos down to maybe 54% and stays there. Are controls not set right? Is there a manual or printout that shows how to use the controls? How do you set unit for automatic shut-off?

I just had one giving me the somewhat the same problem. Upon taking it apart I found that the entire inside was filthy. This thing runs in a work area in my basement and sucks up all of the dirty air. When you take the water out of the dirty air you have nothing but the dirt and the water. When you mix those together you get mud which is what clogged everything up in mine.
Dehumidifiers need to be clean on the inside to run properly especially all of the fins on the condensor. You will probably have to take it apart and clean it. Concentrate on the fins and the water collection areas. Dehumidifiers remove heat from the air which causes the humidity to collect on the condensor. As it collects it turns into water droplets. Gravity pulls the water droplets into the water collection areas and that flows to your tank. There is some sort of float in your tank that lets the dehumidifier know it is full and shuts it off with some sort of switch. It does this so it does not just keep running and eventually pour water onto your floor. It sounds like your switch and/or float is stuck. Find the float and switch and manually work them to make certain they are working freely, clean if necessary.
If the dehumidifier does not remove water like it should it is probably not getting good airflow. There are ice sensors on the evaporator that tells the compressor to stop working. However the fan will still run to pull warm air across the ice so that it melts, goes into the water collection area and into your tank. Some of these ice sensors work by measuring air flow. If there is no air flow or very limited air flow the sensor will tell the compressor not to work. The fan will run again to melt the ice so that it melts and is removed. If your condensor is dirty and does not allow the air to flow, this could cause your problem.

See previous answer. If new, contact supplier to replace float switch. Are you sure it's not just a fan staying on with the tank out?
