Danby ddr5511r owner manual


Yess the DDR5511R has the drain hose connection inside the compartment where the water bucket sits. It is at the top right corner. You have to remove the water drawer to see it. At the right side of the unit (on the outside) is a small "door" that flips up so that you can feed a hose throught to the threaded outet inside. The drain hose is not supplied with this unit.

Just purchases the DD50PC. Set the pump to continuous, hooked the hose to the slop sink in basement approx 8 feet, pump running fine but when looked at it the next day the pump had shut off and the tank...


The reason this happened may be two fold. Either the hose is clogged or the length of hose is to long and then has to go up hill into the slop sink. The owner's Manual says the pump is rated for an 8 foot lift. However, what I have discovered is that rating, does not take friction loss in to account.

Try moving the unit closer to the sink and shorten the hose about a foot or two. Actually, a floor drain would be perfect, if you have one in your basement.

Hope this helped you ad thanks for choosing FixYa.

How to set the dehumidityfier to drain through a hose than the bucket


As you're facing the rear of the unit, you will see a drain hose connection with a drain cap in place, don near floor level. Using a garden hose, no longer than 5 feet, remove the drain cap and save for future uses. Connect the garden hose section to the drain hose connection. Roll the dehumidifier to within 5 feet of a floor drain and place the hose at the inner edge of the floor drain. Be use the hose is sloped down and without bends or kinks. Plug the dehumidifier in, turn it ON and set the humidity extraction level at 35 - 40%. Monitor the hose to make sure its draining after 15 minutes of operation.

Keep in mind, the drain hose relies entirely on gravity to drain. It will not drain, if the hose is not sloped it's entire length down from the unit.

To assist you further, I have included a link to your Owner's Manual, that you can download and print for future reference. http://www.danby.com/cms/uploads/products/en_manual/DDR586R%20EFOM.pdf

Bought a Delonghi dd50pc dehumifier last week for my basement and I have the hose going uphill and out a window but the pump always shuts off after 3-4 minutes, filling the tank instead. Now when I lay...


You really answered your own question. The pump in the dehumidifier only has so much water lift capacity. By trying to run it up and out, you have exceeded the maximum lift capacity. Using a floor drain or even a bathtub drain in the basement will probably work, as long as the hose is not to long.*
However, if you can use a floor drain, there's no need to use the pump function. You can use the continuous drain on the back of the unit. using the drain hose provided for that application.

*The 13 ft lift capacity noted in the Owner's Manual includes whatever length of hose you're using to get to the window. As there is some friction loss involved. But, they fail to point that out.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

How to attach drainage hose to drain automatically


Because your model dehumidifier has an unusual continuous drain hook up, as compared to other brands, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for your model. You will find the information on page 3. You can downlaod and print the, manual for future reference.

One thing the Owner's Manual fails to mention is the length of the garden hose that can be attached to the unit. It should not exceed 5 feet. As drainage relies entirely on gravity to drain.

I hope this has helped you. Please let e know. Thanks.

How do i start the continous mode (water going to drain) not to bucket?


Depending on which bucket style your unit has, will determine where the 5 foot long drain hose (garden hose) is attached to the bucket. I have included a link to your Owner's Manual that will give you not only instructions on how to connect the hose, but also a visual look of how to do it. You can find this on Page 8.

Condensate pump buzzes but does not remove water. have blown out discharge hose and clean check valve with changing symptons. Should I give up and put it on a box and buy a separate condensate pump or...


Edwin, according to the Owner's Manual, when this happens the drain hose is not connected properly. Turn the unit OFF and unplug it, then disconnect the hose and reconnect it. Plug the unit back in, Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and press the pump button. If the hose is connected properly, the pump should tunr on and pump the water out.

To help you further, I have included a link to the Owner's Manual for a Delonghi model like yours. Once you go to that page, click on the Acrobat Reader Icon and download the Owner's Manual. You may print it is you like.

What setting do you have to have it on for the water to come out of hose only


The water collection bucket may have a hose tap in it. But, in your case the hose drain connection is on the side of the unit. You have to remove the cover of the hose connection, before you can connect the garden hose. Here's where it gets a little tricky, because the Owners Manual says to leave the bucket in place. However, the Troubleshooting Guide says to remove the bucket, if water is not draining thru the hose. Which to me, makes sense, because the unit can't recognize that the hose is connected, if the bucket is still installed, because it has a safety switch.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, here is a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference.

I have a Kenmore 54501 dehumidifier


hi,

somewhere there is a "knockout" or "plug" or something similar you have to remove or replace it to get it to drain through the hose, there should be some documentation in the owners manual about it, try troubleshooting in the back of the manual. If not look directly into the hose outlet and see if theres a plastic plug there, if there is use a screwdriver or something similar to GENTLY remove the plug, you may have to just study the machine when its running to get a better idea of how the water drains, maybe the machine came with something like it in one of the plastic bags the accessories came in.

good luck
